Default Romanowski eager to meet with Broncos’ new coach

Quote:
DENVER (AP)—Bill Romanowski envisions a protein bar stocked with vitamins and supplements in the corner of the locker room, customized workouts to fit each player’s deficiencies and on-staff nutritionists waiting to be of service.

That’s what the former Pro Bowl linebacker would implement if he were in charge of a team’s health and well-being. And it’s one of the game plans he’s going to present when he gets the chance to meet with newly hired Denver Broncos coach Josh McDaniels.

Romanowski said he’s been contacted by Broncos owner Pat Bowlen to come in for a meet-and-greet early next week with the 32-year-old coach who replaced Mike Shanahan.

No position has been promised for Romanowski, no expectations given. It’s just a simple sit-down.

The team had no comment.

Just like in his playing days, Romanowski figures he has a lot to offer the Broncos.

“I’m going to profess my vision on how to better take care of the athletes,” Romanowski said Thursday in an interview from the Bay Area.

Romanowski wants to be a coach someday. He even tried to persuade Bowlen to let him interview for the head coaching job after Shanahan was fired, creating an elaborate 30-page PowerPoint presentation. But he’s never coached in the NFL and wasn’t considered.

If a coaching spot isn’t available on McDaniels’ staff, Romanowski wouldn’t mind being the Broncos’ “performance” coordinator, overlooking the team’s fitness and health. He’s currently the president and CEO of a nutrition company called Nutrition53.com.

“There’s another level on where to take a team when it comes to the way it trains,” said Romanowski, who suited up for San Francisco, Philadelphia, Denver and Oakland during a standout 16-year career in the NFL that was marked by a bad temper and his admitted use of THG, the designer steroid at the center of the BALCO scandal.

Romanowski said he would also hire a full-time nutritionist and bring in some of the world’s elite strength and conditioning coaches.

As for the protein bar, it would be like a mini Jamba Juice, complete with ingredients to boost strength, endurance and the immune system.

He would also design workouts tailored to an athlete’s specific needs. That way, an offensive lineman isn’t doing the same workout as, say, a defensive back.

“What they do on the football field is totally different. Their strength programs and speed programs will be very different,” Romanowski said. “Say you have eight defensive backs. They’re all going to be very similar in the way they’re trained, but one day a week may be very detailed to what each specific player’s needs are. Maybe one needs more leg strength? Maybe one needs more of a burst? Maybe one has trouble changing directions to his right? So you break it down that specifically.”

Given his close friendship with Bowlen, Romanowski’s preference is to land a role with the Broncos.

However, he’s hoping to break into the league with a team in some capacity, whether as a nutrition consultant or coach.

“I have a vision. To not give back is almost doing a disservice,” he said. “It’s almost like I feel like I owe this to the NFL, for being so good to me for so many years.”

Romanowski also has a tight relationship with Al Davis, frequently chatting with the Oakland owner about nutrition and all things Raiders.

Should Davis show an interest in his services, Romanowski would zip off another PowerPoint presentation, one that’s specifically designed for the Raiders.

“He’s still sharp as a tack,” Romanowski said. “You’ve got to be on your game. He’s testing you when he’s talking to you.”

Right now, Romanowski is focusing on his impending meeting with McDaniels, studying up on the former New England offensive coordinator-turned-head coach.

“I’m going to go in and see how it goes,” Romanowski said. “I know I can make a big impact with the Broncos.”

Romo totally sold his body out to make plays and perform. I wish last years players had 1/100 of the heart and emotion he possessed during a game. I'd throw him in as a nutritionist/strength coach and as a LB coach. We need more of a presence from guys like him that know how to win and teach the attitude...bring Elway, Rod Smith, Eddie Mac, Alfred Williams...you name it. This team has lost its focus and what made us a winner for too long.

Romos a dick. But he's a dick that KNOWS how to use his body and how to fine tune it to get the most out of it..
When he played for us he pulled some Shyt , for sure. And he dislocated Shannons arm (elbow) in that one game when he was a raider. I still think he might have done it on purpose.

But he does know nutrition and he could be an asset in getting players to perform better and have fewer injuries. And with all the testing nowadays he would not put any player at risk, or propose illegal substances....that's a one way ticket out of the NFL for all time. I guess it will depend on what McDaniels thinks.

I can't quite see a mini GNC store with Romo behind the counter in the locker/training room. But his thoughts on specific training for position and players makes a lot of sense. and I wouldn't mind seeing him in on Strength and conditioning...Tuten is FAIL as far as I can see.

Nobody and I say NOBODY wanted to win more than Romanowski. If this team had 1/2 of his heart and dedication they would have won 11 games last year.

I meant on the field. Remember him smacking his head ain the Pitt game against Flash...practically goaded him into throwing interceptions. spitting in another players face.

He WAS a dick. But when he played here he was OUR dick and I loved him.

To me, the last thing we need is a strength and conditioning "expert" to come in here and feed our guys protein and focus on muscle mass and getting the playres to put up bigger "numbers", only to collapse in the middle of the season to injury or realize that they can't use that weight room strength on the football field.

Football is not about lifting strength, its about concentrated force - explosiveness. We need someone on the cutting edge that focuses on flexibility and the details of joints and tendons. I really doubt that Romo is that guy.
