Like most people in this room, I thought Sherman was a terrible GM. However, I do feel he is an above average coach. I don't love him, I don't hate him. But with him entering the last year of his contract, and that contract still not renewed, I can't help but put some puzzle pieces together. Bates turned down an opportunity to coach in NE. Why? Maybe he doesn't want to share the defense with Belicheck. Maybe he wants a challenge. These are both real possibilities. But I can't help but think that if sherman isn't extended before the year, that might foreshadow his demise. We all know Bates wants a head coaching job at some point. Is that why he chose GB over NE? Am I being too speculative, or has this thought crossed your mind too?
