[QUOTE]Yea but thats easy, everyone and their mother wants Weis back in NE. Anyone else? Jim Fessel? The former coach of the NY Giants who took them to a super bowl in 2000? Dennis Green? Brian Billick? Billick was the OC for the Vikings when Moss scored 17 TDs and set the points record that the Pats later broke. There are a lot of options out there so lets look past Weis and see what we get.

Billick? Seriously? What offense did he ever cultivate during his time in Baltimore?
Do you think Josh Mc D was a good OC? If you do, and i have no idea if you and oranyone does, but if anyone thought that then I think you have to wait and see.
The reason I say that is because in Josh's 1st "unnamed" OC year the offense was ranked 7th over all in total offense and scored an avg. of 23.7 PPG. O'brien on the other hand has the overall total offense ranked 2nd and scoring an avg. of 27.3 ppg.
Now i know O'brien has more talent in his first "unnamed" year as OC but his squads offensive stats are better with those better players. Both Josh and O'brien faced criticism in the 1st years when they were still titled QB coaches yet everyone considered them the OC's.
Are the 2nd half woe's of the offense in road games a product of poor game planning? Not logically since the game plan was working for the first half. Are they a product of poor play calling, lack of adjustments, or simply failed execution by the offense as a whole? I have no idea.
Also for those that have talked about halftime adjustments. PLease use some logic. When you go out in a half and do everything you want and its working, you do not go running into halftime to make wholesale changes. The other team does.
They just seem to be having a difficult job executing plan B, when it comes time for it, on the road in the 2nd half. If someone had the simple exact answer to it I am sure BB has a job for you. :)
The last thing I'll mention is continuity. If they were to change or rather officially name someone other than O'brien as the OC I believe it has to be someone willing to learn and utilize the same offensive system they have been running. I belive thats why they have done it this way from within.
