    I thought people said Caserio was running things over there? Why do they need Lombardi, then? ;) This is Bill's show, always was, and anybody else in the FO over there is just working for him. He's worked with Lombardi before and he decided to bring him aboard. Nice break for Michael Lombardi, otherwise he might have been unemployed for stretch.

    That's payback to Caserio for even interviewing with us. It's always something personal with BB.

    Good! Before his firing from Oakland, despite some highs sprinkled in, his lasting legacy there speaks for itself, he was a moron as a commentator and already proving not too swift with the Browns. So as a fan of an opposing AFCE team, I'm onboard with the Pats giving him run-of-the-house :up:

    The word in Boston was that Bill was on board with it. He runs things but doesn't control the purse. Caserio coming back to Boston with a job offer would facilitate him getting a raise.

    Can anyone tell me how to change the main header so that the edit shows up in the main page? I can go "advanced" and it does change the header, but not on the main list. I'm trying to change the typo from "Joint" to "Join."

    Terrific news. Lombardi is a train wreck.

    Former #Browns GM Mike Lombardi has had discussions about joining the #Patriots front office, but there is nothing firm or official yet

    You do realize that a team's front office involves more than one person. We had Gaine as assistant GM and more people on our staff. Until three years ago Hickey was a few rungs down the ladder of the Bucs front office. Its not like Lombardi is now Caserio's Boss.
    Belicheck is the defacto GM that is not going to change until BB wants it to or likely retires. I doubt this is any payback. Its just BB hiring a guy he has worked with before. Hell im not a Lomabardi fan but its not like Mingo was somehow a horrible pick at this point.

    More money, but now he has to wipe the sweat directly from Bill's sack.

    Curious if you have ever been to the Ausable Chasm, I don't remember seeing that rock formation, LOL.

    Yeah it's been many years but I've actually been there although I admit once I determined the concept of "opposite of mountain" this was a workable image that came up on an "ausable chasm resulting search.

    You do some nice work with your image on image pictures.

    It's been about 10 years since I was there. It is a spectacular river and area. Rode my Harley to the top of whiteface mountain. Did the Olympic bobsled run. And the best clam chowder is at Great adirondack steak & seafood in Lake Placid.

    Man I need to go back, I miss that place.

    Lombardi, if he's hired, will be a small piece of the staff. Caserio & Floyd Reese do the bulk of the decision-making after getting BB's input.
