Bill Romanowski once lobbied to replace Mike Shanahan in Denver. Now he might join Shanahan's staff in Washington.

Jay Glazer reports that Romanowski is interviewing in Washington to be the team's strength and conditioning coach. Seriously.

There are a ton of jokes that could be made here, but we'll leave them to the commenters.

Instead, we wonder if the league will have an opinion on the hiring of an admitted steroid user and pill enthusiast for a job that puts him in charge of the conditioning of an entire NFL team.

Shanahan ran him through an extensive lie detector screening.

While I don't agree with his past PED use, I doubt there is anybody that has learned to take better care of his body or could help future athletes take care of theirs.

His mold fits exactly with what i've loved from previous strength coaches in my past. Smart, tough, and intense.

I don't see the issue with this. I could see how apologists would though. They'll try and deflect from McD's having his kid brother potentially telling Donovon McNabb how to play his position next season...

"no, no, no MCNABB!!! When I was coaching JV kids two years ago, we taught them to throw it like THIS!"

truthfully i don't think the league can say anything. for all the supplements that he used in his career, he was never once suspended or caught taking anything illegal. he was also one of the most well conditioned players on our roster during his time in Denver.

Wasn't he going around a few years ago trying to catch on as a strength coach? I remember something about it and his powerpoint presentation. You can't deny that that dude knew how to stay in shape. He'd probably make a fine LB coach too.

This was in response to Shanahan's potential hiring of this guy.

Hypocritical don't you think since McKid hired his McBrother to teach NFL Qb's how to run an offense just two years removed from high school football? Honestly, I think Romo is probably ready for this type of job and will thrive with it.

Obviously the push he made a couple of years ago impressed Shanahan with his thoroughness, hence why he's getting another opportunity. Some people just want to write that off that he isn't hiring quality people, just people he knows. It couldn't be more false in this situation.

He didn't make the thread.

I think since we have lost all substantial coaches now, including Dennnison, Nolan, Turner and Bates, it's a fair question to bring in both a rookie DC and QB coach considering our finish@ 2-8.

And boy, that #14 pick sure looks good about now.

Romo one of my all time favorite Broncos. Realize though I only judge by what they do on the field. Romo loved playing football more then any player I have ever seen. I think Elway was close, but Elway loved winning more then football.

I think Romo liked it period. He would have played even if you didn't keep score.

No, I wouldn't. Because it makes sense.

A majority of McDaniels moves don't make sense.

See exhibits:

A. Cutler, Jay

B. Orton, Kyle

C. 2009 NFL Draft

D. Nolan, Mike

E. Whatever the **** his brother's name is who will be leading our QB's into the future.

Those are just the most blatant things to point out.

Mute point really though... Romo is a good fit as a S&C coach, and is obviously prepared or Mike wouldn't have given him a interview.

Report: Romanowski isn't likely to land in D.C.
Posted by Mike Florio on February 9, 2010 4:38 PM ET

Jaws dropped on Tuesday when word emerged that a notoriously juiced-up jaw-breaker could become the Redskins' strength and conditioning coach.

But Jason Reid of the Washington Post reports that former NFL linebacker Bill Romanowski is not a favorite to get the job for which he'll interview.

Romanowski was a controversial figure during his 16-year NFL career. Apart from his admitted use of steroids, Romanowski once spit at an opponent -- and Romo rearranged the face of a teammate, who sued him and obtained a six-figure verdict.

In 2001, Romanowski was tried on criminal charges of illegally obtaining prescription diet pills.

After his acquittal, Romanowski said, "I am just so thankful to the jury that they found us not guilty. I take a lot of pride in being a good person and being a role model, and a lot of that was in question in the last two years."

For more than the past four years, the question has been resolved; Romanowski is neither a good person nor a role model and even the mere granting of an interview to this pill-popping thug is the equivalent of the Redskins shooting another middle finger to the rest of the league, and to its fans.

The way he interviews on some sports shows it makes me think that same way of him too.

why do so many still swing off of Cutler's nuts and proclaim him as the greatest thing to happen to the NFL after the season he just had?

yes, it is a shame having a QB who had near identical averages to the 2008 season of Cutler minus all the INTs

he drafted the best rookie RB in this years class. not the RB or McDaniels fault that the line couldn't give him any rushing lanes. Ayers when we drafted him was known to be a guy that would take time. Quinn was drafted to take over for Graham in a year or 2, Smith was brought in not to start, but to learn from Champ, and Goodman and take over in a couple seasons. his draft wasn't about making the team great in 2009, but building the team to be good in future seasons.

how many times must the retarded Nolan crap be brought back up. he wanted to go to Miami. also, originally McDaniels said no to Miami's request to interview Nolan, it wasn't until NOLAN chose to go that McDaniels allowed it.

i still remember all that stuff about the team during super bowl week partying and basically not taking the game seriously, while he was working in the hotel swimming pool, preparing for the game.

like him or not, he was an intimidating dude, he loved the game, and even though he has admitted to using substances that were banned, he never got caught once doing anything illegal.

he took supplements and when certain supplements he took became banned in the league he stopped taking them and replaced them with something legal.

i still think this team needs a guy like him. speed, leadership and size are all great things, but nothing quite matches intimidation on the field. this defense needs a guy like Romo, who can get into an opponents head and make him fear coming near his part of the field.

I always liked him as a player. He's a very intense guy.
He may turn out to be a better teacher, so we won't know how that would work out at the end...

It also helps that Romo was a difference maker and a big time playmaker. He made a lot of big sacks, fumble recoveries, INT's that the team needed.
