I heard the same arguments after Milloy left. Same with Ted Washington. With Ted Johnson, he did have a resurgance last year but the past 2 Super Bowl winning teams for the Pats before last year he was out most of the time due to injury, and I say that with all the respect due Johnson. He was one of my fsvorites. Don't count out the Pats just yet.
I can't imagine a big name wanting to jump in on this team; you have to be desperate to want to be one of 32 coaches, because there's not much else going for it (and there surely will be other better jobs coming open.)
