Maybe we could get some player help from T Buck ..... :P

San Francisco general manager Terry Donahue informed Crennel Tuesday morning that he would not be among a select group returning for second interviews for the 49ers vacant head coach position. That means Crennel will be back working his magic with the Patriots defense, something he\'s done rather well in his two seasons as defensive coordinator.

Obviously, Crennel\'s performance – especially in 2001 – made him a worthy candidate. As a veteran of 22 NFL seasons, he\'s more than earned his shot at the big time and many veterans in the Patriots locker room (most notably Anthony Pleasant and Terrell Buckley) have lobbied his case for getting a head coaching job in the past. He no doubt would excel in that role with his professionalism and vast experience.

But losing him would have been a big blow to the Patriots staff. Before Crennel arrived, Bill Belichick served as his own defensive coordinator in 2000, his first season as head coach in New England. One of the knocks on Belichick during his five-year tenure in Cleveland was that he didn\'t delegate enough authority among his coaches. Instead, he controlled virtually the entire football operation and the results weren\'t good: a 37-45 record (including playoffs) and just one postseason appearance (1994).

In 2000, the 5-11 Patriots had many problems, most of which dealt with a severe lack of talent. Belichick served as his own defensive coordinator that season, and while that surely had little effect on the overall picture, it\'s tough to ignore the amazing turnaround in 2001 after Crennel came aboard.
