    I'm sorry, I don't see Romo the same way. He is one of many currently paid Raider representatives that I wish would drift off into obscurity. He has never truly bled Silver and Black. The fact is, when his career was on the ropes, he kissed up to Al Davis, because he knew the old man had a hankering for hiring has-beens with big names. Al bent over and Romo puckered up nice and good. The two got along swimmingly.

    But let's not confuse a man on his last legs looking for a paycheck with one who truly BLEEDS Silver and Black. There is a world of difference between croneyism and being one of the true faithful. If the Broncos, Niners or Philly had taken Romo in, he'd be in their colors, making commentaries on their team-sponsored shows. I wish that was, indeed, the case now.

    As for Romo's passion for the game, there's no denying it. I would not begrudge him that. But in terms of x's and o's, have you ever really sat down and listened to him discuss defense? If he has any true insights, you'll have to give me a damn Hubble telescope...because without it, I can't see them. And turn on a supernova or two while you're at it, because I'm going to need the incandescance to see beyond his dense b/s.

    Romo was a great player, but not someone I'm hiring for more than a team mascot position. Someone mentioned bringing him in as a strength and conditioning. Really, a guy that used PEDs? No thanks, I'll pass. (No, Romo probably doesn't use them NOW, but back in his playing days, he was one of the chief culprits linked to illegal performance enhancing drugs. Research it.) To hire a questionable character like that is just asking for trouble. No thanks. Not with my Raiders.

    I would love that, but don't see it happening unless Norv was somehow impressed enough with Pryor to get over past transgressions.

    With Tedford at OC we get a great offensive mind. He is a west coast guy who ran the ZBS very well producing a lot of 1000 yd backs at Cal. With Rich Gannon we get a QB who ran the west coast offense perfectly. will help palmer, or whoever the starter will be, very much. With an assistant from washington to coach the OL we get a shanny guy, shanny runs the ZBS to utter mother****ing perfection. and with Bill romanowski we can have him brainwash burris into becoming a psycho

    As someone else said, Al is gone. If it's a good deal, I don't see
    why he WOULDN'T consider it. ESPECIALLY if Pryor can see LOTS of time on the field next season.

    I was the one that mentioned him as a strength and conditioning coach. I am also keenly aware of his past transgressions with illegal substances and methods (BALCO, steroids) but the guy was innovative and very disciplined to his training regimine. How about his ties to supplement guru Bill Philips or his willingness to make an oxygen chamber available to any of his team mates in Oakland? I'm just saying that this is one area that he could be an asset to the team on. I don't think that the man's character is in question, but if we're talking as a LB coach I would pass. I agree that he provides nothing special in the way of insight on how to be a productive LB at the professional level. One has to look no further that his slow responses and speech patterns to realize this guy has suffered way too many concussions....
