Romeo is a great guy, his players will run through a wall for him, but other than turning the offense over to Chudzinski, what has he proven? We have gone over this ad nauseum, but Crennel is a defensive coach who's defense has gotten worse each year and was bailed out by his offense this year. With a 2008 schedule that features the NFC East (all four teams were .50o or better) and the AFC South (all four teams were .500 or better), the real test will be this year. There was no reason to grant Romeo this extension. Why not wait another season to make sure 2007 was not a fluke?
Props to agent Joe Linta for the ability to swing this extension for his client.
