Former Broncos star has ideal candidate for coach
By PAT GRAHAM

DENVER (AP) — Bill Romanowski has the perfect coaching candidate in mind for the Denver Broncos, a dark horse, somebody out of the blue who's on nobody's radar — himself.

The former Pro Bowl linebacker who spends his post-playing days running a nutrition company and dabbling in broadcasting and acting told The Associated Press on Thursday night that he's serious about wanting a chance at coaching his old team.

He said he sent Broncos owner Pat Bowlen a lengthy PowerPoint presentation touting his credentials and outlining the fresh ideas he would bring to the job that Mike Shanahan held for 14 seasons before his stunning dismissal last week.

"I can't stop thinking about this," said Romanowski, who played for San Francisco, Philadelphia, Denver and Oakland during a standout 16-year career in the NFL that was marred by a bad temper and his admitted use of THG, the designer steroid at the center of the BALCO scandal.

"This may be a complete fantasy and that's all right ... At the end of the day, nothing may happen from it."

Romanowski has no official NFL coaching experience, just a knowledge from the players' perspective.

"For Pat to do something like this, it would take him being a visionary, thinking outside the box," said Romanowski, whose coaching experience includes helping with his son's football team. "Him hiring me, it's a long shot. I understand that. I know that."

The Broncos met with Miami Dolphins secondary coach Todd Bowles on Thursday, the seventh candidate to interview for the job. All are current NFL assistant coaches. Team spokesman Patrick Smyth said there were no other candidates scheduled to interview for the vacancy, one of the most coveted in all of football.

The Broncos had no comment on Romanowski's interest in the coaching vacancy.

Romanowski is hopeful that Bowlen gives him even a courtesy call because he's certain he can win him over.

"I truly believe that I'd be the best person in the country for the job. That's me being confident in my abilities," Romanowski said.

In his more than 30-page presentation that he zipped off to Bowlen, Romanowski outlined how he'd run things if he were in charge. He would hire a new defensive staff and revamp the player personnel department, analyzing the college scouting system in a new way, he said.

"I'd take the top 60 colleges in the country that produce pro prospects and I would treat those 60 like they were their own league and start looking at freshmen when they come in," Romanowski said. "When 80 percent of your talent comes from 20 percent of the colleges, I think you ought to have a pretty strong focus on those colleges."

Romanowski would also hire a full-time nutritionist and recruit some of the world's elite strength and conditioning coaches, he said.

"I'd have literally a full-time person mixing up protein shakes every day," said Romanowski, who is president and CEO of a nutritional company called Nutrition53. "The business is football, which is having fast, strong, explosive players."

He'd also have on staff someone to keep an eye on the emotional well-being of the players, he said.

"In the NFL now, nobody touches (that)," Romanowski said. "They only try to fix it when it breaks, when someone ... has trouble with alcohol or drugs. How about a performance coach?"

Bowlen fired Shanahan after the Broncos blew a three-game lead with three weeks left in the season and finished 8-8, missing the playoffs for the third straight year, something that hadn't happened in Denver since 1980-82.

Romanowski thinks he can help get the team back on track.

"I laid out a whole game plan on how I'd do these things," he said. "I love what I do now. It's not like I have to have the head coaching job for the Denver Broncos. I happen to be pretty confident in my abilities and I know what I could do there."

Romo was a true playmaker. Whether you liked him or not, he really made things happen.

I agree that NFL teams need better nutritionists. Roddy White was eating McDonalds daily until this year, and look how much he improved.

I've spoke to more than a few fans who've caught B-Marsh at the Burger King on Federal before gameday. One of those games was his 18-catch game against San Diego. Regardless, these guys need to take better care of their bodies before they turn 30 and they're forced too.

As passionate as he is about competing, he ought to start somewhere in college and work his way up the food chain, but if he did that I could see him someday being back in the NFL as a coach. Being an ex-NFL player, somebody will hire him if he wants to coach. He'd at least know how to motivate I think.

Romo always brought it,even if it was out of control sometimes.

He has some good ideas about the nutrition and stuff. But HC?

The roids have done their damage I see.

I could see him getting a job at a college first, then be some kind of
coach in the NFL....if he doesn't kill a player for dropping a pick or something along the way. Master Motivator!

01-08-2009, 09:39 PM
If I was Bowlen I would call him back and say there are no short cuts to being a HC in this league. If you are serious about doing that, then prove it by coming in here and being a conditioning coach. Then in a few years you can be a LB coach, and if you do good then possibly a DC and then.............well, you get the point. You earn it. You don't whip up some powerpoint presentation.

I guess it depends...

In the Romo context I would assume "jacked" means building muscle, you know, injecting test or whatever he was doing back in the day.

If you mean "jacked" by smoking/shooting meth, staying up for a week scrubbing the grout in your bathroom for 36 hours and losing 25 pounds over the course of a week, I think we are talking about separate things.

Thanks for your idiotic condescending post though.

Downside: He is completely underprepared for the job and would be overwhelmed from day 1.

Why? Romo never missed any. Of all the players in the league, he knew each and every ingredient in every supplement he ever took and knew exactly what to stay away from to fail the league tests. He took pride in that.

Romo's recipe for success:

First time a player makes a mistake - An in-your-face militaristic public drilling of player complete with Romo eye bulge and neck veins.

Second offense: Double the HGH right off the bat and couple that with a full urine and fecal analysis to measure the body's chemical makeup. If testosterone does not measure at equine levels go back and quadruple the HGH prescription.

Third offense: On-the-field beat down resulting in broken eye orbit.

Spoken like a man who has no idea how amphetamines affect the body.

Amphetamines are drugs that raise the heart rate and give the user a general sense of euphoria with heightened awareness and faster reflexes. The side effects of this are increased adrenalin throughout the body and a dangerous increase in the heart's pump rate which can cause heart attacks.

Here is what your sentence should have said with the correct drugs:


Umm, potheads would have the opposite effect. Not a whole lot of jacked up stoners last time I checked

Meth is actually more dangerous than typical amphetamines like "Speed" or coke or crack.

A "bump" of meth is equal to about 3 lines of coke. Ive never met a crankhead that wasnt jacked up at all times.

DENVER (AP) Bill Romanowski has the perfect coaching candidate in mind for the Denver Broncos, a dark horse, somebody out of the blue who's on nobody's radar himself.

The former Pro Bowl linebacker who spends his post-playing days running a nutrition company and dabbling in broadcasting and acting told The Associated Press on Thursday night that he's serious about wanting a chance at coaching his old team.

I've never dumped on Romo the way many posters here have done in the past because I've always believed he is the real deal.

I have no problem with the Broncos hiring Romo as a ligit consultant for football operations. I think he's got great potential in the Broncos front office.

I never implied it was a depressant. I implied that it does not build muscle, and makes you lose weight.

Read the original post. Romo has NEVER had anything to with amphetamines. He has, however, been involved in steroids.

I dont think ROMO missed a game from injury. He had some pretty unorthadox things he did like the hypobaric chamber thingy. I know he used some illegal sumstances but that aside I think his strength and condition was top notch. Maybe he would be a good S&C cordinator? 'With as many injuries as we have had the past several years anything is worth a shot.

I'm surprised Romo hasn't landed a LB coaching gig somewhere. Maybe it's not glamorous enough for him. He's a maniac, but the guy is extremely savvy. He knows the game. You'd think he'd make a good position coach if he could keep from popping someone in the mouth.

He can teach people how to break an arm, making a tackle - without making it look intentional.

You never know! Although i prefer our head coaches to have coaching experience i wouldn't mind Bill Romanowski as some kind of consultant to the new head coach, or whatever. He has some legit ideas.

If he even sniffed being allowed to incorporate his "ideas" the entire team would pop on the piss test.

Can't say I disagree with some of of his thinking at least:

In his more than 30-page presentation that he zipped off to Bowlen, Romanowski outlined how he'd run things if he were in charge. He would hire a new defensive staff and revamp the player personnel department, analyzing the college scouting system in a new way, he said.

"I'd take the top 60 colleges in the country that produce pro prospects and I would treat those 60 like they were their own league and start looking at freshmen when they come in," Romanowski said. "When 80 percent of your talent comes from 20 percent of the colleges, I think you ought to have a pretty strong focus on those colleges."

Romanowski would also hire a full-time nutritionist and recruit some of the world's elite strength and conditioning coaches, he said.

"I'd have literally a full-time person mixing up protein shakes every day," said Romanowski, who is president and CEO of a nutritional company called Nutrition53. "The business is football, which is having fast, strong, explosive players."

He'd also have on staff someone to keep an eye on the emotional well-being of the players, he said.

"In the NFL now, nobody touches (that)," Romanowski said. "They only try to fix it when it breaks, when someone ... has trouble with alcohol or drugs. How about a performance coach?"

Romanowski thinks he can help get the team back on track.

"I laid out a whole game plan on how I'd do these things," he said.

I think Romo would make a good special teams coach...imagine him getting in the face of some draft pick caught dogging it on a punt return. He'd scare these guys into playing out of pure fear. ;D

I'm still a fan of his. I stopped being a fan during his time with the raiders, but once his career ended, I went back to being a fan. He's one of those players that you hate if he isn't on your team, but you love if he is. He was a big part of that defense, and I love everything he did for the team. I've never felt the need to bash him like others around here often did.

All he ever did was put 110% onto the field every time he played. How could we not love that? I'll never forget the story about how while other Broncos went out and looked at the city before superbowl Romo was in the pool working out and stretching. He would go in with a big paddle and move it through water for resistance. All he cared about was football and glory.

So he spit on someone, so he probably was a tad of a racist, then in the end he did the unforgivable which is attack a teammate. Obviously he had some anger issues.

But since when do you want a bunch of choir boys for a defense?

Correct. We didnt re-sign him so he had to find employment somewhere and it was at the evil empire. Romo is part of Broncos lore and will always be. Who doesnt remember the AFC CHampionship game against the Steelers where Stewart throws the INT and ROmo goes right to him and slaps his own helmet as to say, "Are you a ****ing retard?"

Former Broncos star has ideal candidate for coach
By PAT GRAHAM

DENVER (AP) Bill Romanowski has the perfect coaching candidate in mind for the Denver Broncos, a dark horse, somebody out of the blue who's on nobody's radar himself.

The former Pro Bowl linebacker who spends his post-playing days running a nutrition company and dabbling in broadcasting and acting told The Associated Press on Thursday night that he's serious about wanting a chance at coaching his old team.

He said he sent Broncos owner Pat Bowlen a lengthy PowerPoint presentation touting his credentials and outlining the fresh ideas he would bring to the job that Mike Shanahan held for 14 seasons before his stunning dismissal last week.

"I can't stop thinking about this," said Romanowski, who played for San Francisco, Philadelphia, Denver and Oakland during a standout 16-year career in the NFL that was marred by a bad temper and his admitted use of THG, the designer steroid at the center of the BALCO scandal.

"This may be a complete fantasy and that's all right ... At the end of the day, nothing may happen from it."

Romanowski has no official NFL coaching experience, just a knowledge from the players' perspective.

"For Pat to do something like this, it would take him being a visionary, thinking outside the box," said Romanowski, whose coaching experience includes helping with his son's football team. "Him hiring me, it's a long shot. I understand that. I know that."

The Broncos met with Miami Dolphins secondary coach Todd Bowles on Thursday, the seventh candidate to interview for the job. All are current NFL assistant coaches. Team spokesman Patrick Smyth said there were no other candidates scheduled to interview for the vacancy, one of the most coveted in all of football.

The Broncos had no comment on Romanowski's interest in the coaching vacancy.

Romanowski is hopeful that Bowlen gives him even a courtesy call because he's certain he can win him over.

"I truly believe that I'd be the best person in the country for the job. That's me being confident in my abilities," Romanowski said.

In his more than 30-page presentation that he zipped off to Bowlen, Romanowski outlined how he'd run things if he were in charge. He would hire a new defensive staff and revamp the player personnel department, analyzing the college scouting system in a new way, he said.

"I'd take the top 60 colleges in the country that produce pro prospects and I would treat those 60 like they were their own league and start looking at freshmen when they come in," Romanowski said. "When 80 percent of your talent comes from 20 percent of the colleges, I think you ought to have a pretty strong focus on those colleges."

Romanowski would also hire a full-time nutritionist and recruit some of the world's elite strength and conditioning coaches, he said.

"I'd have literally a full-time person mixing up protein shakes every day," said Romanowski, who is president and CEO of a nutritional company called Nutrition53. "The business is football, which is having fast, strong, explosive players."

He'd also have on staff someone to keep an eye on the emotional well-being of the players, he said.

"In the NFL now, nobody touches (that)," Romanowski said. "They only try to fix it when it breaks, when someone ... has trouble with alcohol or drugs. How about a performance coach?"

Bowlen fired Shanahan after the Broncos blew a three-game lead with three weeks left in the season and finished 8-8, missing the playoffs for the third straight year, something that hadn't happened in Denver since 1980-82.

Romanowski thinks he can help get the team back on track.

"I laid out a whole game plan on how I'd do these things," he said. "I love what I do now. It's not like I have to have the head coaching job for the Denver Broncos. I happen to be pretty confident in my abilities and I know what I could do there."

I'd bring him in to train for the job. If he's willing to learn for a few years and then take over, why not. I do like his philosophy.

Not sure what your talking about. I know he was always accused of taking illegal suppliments of some kind and that he was known for walking around with a brief case full of pills, but I don't recall him ever admitting to or being caught for doing anything illegal.
