When they released Terrell Owens it was said that we were going to become Romo Friendly. To some degree, I agree with them, although I did not like the move. It allowed Romo to spread the ball around more, but it also made him less effective. What they didn't do was improve the running game or give him a better offensive line. They didn't improve the defense either. So what do people think is the answer then? Norv Turner? Norv Turner gets credit in San Diego that he does not deserve. Very similar to Garrett. They both inherited high ranking offenses with elite quarterbacks. Both have also done nothing with them and have let their running games go by the way side. If we hire Turner its even more evidence that Jerry is incompetent. What happened to Phillip Rivers? The same thing that is happening to Tony Romo. Without support of a running game the emphasis is placed solely on them. When receivers don't get open, it becomes a fools gambit. When your defense does less than it normally does, you start losing more games. San Diego is the mirror image of Dallas. You want to help Romo? You're going to have to get him coaching help that will actually help him. It's not easy to get a good offensive or defensive coordinator. Why? Because generally speaking one of the following will be true A) Good coordinators are often looked at to become Head Coaches B) Good coordinators are often already under contract at the coordinator position So what can you do? You basically have to look at people who get fired due to their circumstances. Rob Ryan for instance is going to get picked up as a defensive coordinator somewhere, and my guess is he will excel there, much like Wade Phillips. Many times when coaches are fired, their staffs are let go as well, so that the new coach can bring in his people. This is where you can find a lot of good coaches. Marty Mornhinweg would be an interesting choice to me. Rick Dennison but it would probably take HC to get him. Kevin Gilbride, also would probably need an HC designator. Curtis Modkins, would be an interesting choice then you also have to look at college football as well. The fact is we did NONE of that when we hired Garrett. We just handed this guy the reigns, despite NO experience to speak of.
