If I'm not sure that McDaniel he's getting interviews but I'm not sure that. He's the front runner Brandon is jobs you look at this sort of the continuity and the relationship that he's -- -- first Tom Brady and then Matt Cassel mean. Yes a lot to do that those are great players of the Brady obviously great -- athletic great season. But you've been one cops and and you look back they have won a championship since Charlie Weis and Romeo left. But it seems like there's a lot of trust there between Dylan Johnston yeah I think that would be a definite a big -- that team -- So why and I and I agreed to and I'm not so sure that Josh is ready to be a head coach and it's not you know what -- -- -- from nothing but -- relatively young guy's been a coordinator but the play caller on game day for at least two with a two seasons every season perhaps. How to make it happen like you say he's trained quarterbacks in getting them ready to go does that make him a head coach not quite sure he's had. That kind of training took two to to assume that. Rolling what are the man -- -- Extra -- guy and people will say it's a failure dating to the playoffs this year. But he did have two winning seasons in his three years -- quite frank I think he was made a fall guy for what happened there. That's -- they're looking -- you wonder if that impacts other people are young coach right young coordinator not only that but from the Belichick in if you look at the Belichick trade. Romeo doesn't get it done in Cleveland. Managing its spot in new York and Charlie Weis and Notre Dame has not exactly worked out like they would have plan as well. I'm sure not I'm not I'm sure they're not gonna look at that as a knock on Belichick necessarily but I think that Mangini jumped into a head coaching role to great parallel which -- bringing up right now to make my point about mcdaniels and an -- and may be a potential off with them. Knew he was -- in a defensive coordinator role for very short period of time. -- that a great defensive coordinator but not so sure that he was ready to assume that head coaching. Yeah no I think Josh -- looks at this may be one more year of seasoning and experience and doesn't hurt to go out and interview and sort of get that podium and quite frankly get your name out of date. Maybe he's the second got a runner up with the -- -- and other owners while I was really impressed that Josh McDaniels did. And -- that job opens up next here. Who knows pioli.
