Even the best minds need Support: BB over his head

After Sunday Night's loss I think it's become pretty clear that BB is trying to do too much on the field by himself.

After Romeo and Charlie left, he's hired people that are smart coaches but who do not have the experience with him to challenge him or really provide an equal level of expertise to offer in a situation.

I was thinking of two things, one I like a lot more then the other but:

BB needs to hire experienced coaches to at OC and DC - or at least one of those positions.  At this point perhaps you can even offer the Assistant HC position with BB eyeing a GM/President role in a couple years ala the Bill Walsh and George Seiffert era of San Francisco.

The problem as I see it now is that BB has been out coached too often and the 2nd half adjustments just aren't as exceptional as they have been in the past.  Granted other teams have picked up on Patriot tendancies, but there is no way you should be losing a game like that on Sunday night, or the Superbowl, or the AFC Championship game in '06.  There are just too many big games, and little games, where coaching has become the difference on a negative side.

I don't think you can get Weiss or Crennel to comeback, that's too much pride for either of them to swallow - but a few options that would intrigue me:

Al Groh as DC.  He's just about kicked off campus @ UVM, is part of the Parcells/BB tree and has enough experience to take some pressure off BB and provide good counsel.

Offensively, tougher to find but in a similar vain though I can't think of anyone to help, if Groh is the DC, then I'd like a young mind who could step in as HC in 2-4 yrs eventuallly.  Would have been great for them to counter the bronco's offer to McDaniels with this in mind.

The ultimate questions though is if BB realizes this is an issue, and can put his ego aside enough to bring in help
