I know the Patriot of old can't come back, on the field that is.  What about bringing some back as coaches?
I would be one to see Willie or Teddy as coaches on the sideline.  They could bring back the Patriot way from the sidelines.
LBs make good coaches, most recently Mike S. in San Fran but there have been others.  Leadership is needed why not bringing the greats back?  They coached while they were still playing why not full time?  I know Teddy has a great job with ESPN but offer the right money he might be back.  We need guys that are passioned about been a New England Patriot, some of these guys remind me of Manny when he didn't care about been knocked out of the playoffs.
