re: Romeo Crennel (Posted on 1/26/13 at 9:35 am to 504hornets)
So I did a little research and I saw that Crennel has had succes as a DC in his first year at KC and NE. The Patriots defense jumped from 17th in 2000 to 6th in Crennel's first year. Kansas City jumped from 29th in 2009, to 11th in Crennel's first year there.
My question is, were these talented defenses with bad DC's before Crennel took over? Or is Crennel really THAT good. I dont see how he could take the crap that is our defensive roster, and turn it into a respectable defense in one year. But it seems like he's done that in the past. I'm very nervous about us choosing now to switch to a 3-4. One reason I'm nervous is we now have to completely start over again. Changing our philosophy could easily lead to another season of terrible defense. We better make sure we bring in the right coaches and personell because if we dont, we could easily be a worse defense than last year.
