    Out of curiosity are the Cardinals even considered an option for him right now?

    I second this, just for the simple fact I don't want to root against the guy twice a year. It hurt me enough to know LMJ is a 49er :cry:

  • Chip has done great things at Oregon, but I just can't see how he would be a good interview for a NFL HC position,...I don't ever remember him cracking a smile,...maybe he just impresses a teams Owner or GM with his innovative vision, and how it would translate in the NFL,..on second thought....I guess there are a number of successful coaches whose public demeanor is not too media friendly,.. say NE and the 49ers

  • I've heard rumors that the Browns are close to a deal with him. I thought the Eagles were a better fit because of the great speed receivers they have, but I think Cleveland is desperate and willing to throw money at Kelly.

  • He supposedly ran a power I system as a coordinator before Oregon, I assume he would change styles in the NFL. Thank god he is not going somewhere like New York or Dallas where they expect their coach to be socially active and open. His interviews are always one liners and "no, we are not going to talk about that".

  • Some underrated poster's been saying Cleveland for awhile. Its the one job, IMO, which even an average coach can get 8 wins, easy. While its the safest choice, the fact he chose it impresses me more. While there's some definite talent on the Browns roster, its not a storied franchise known for wining (Harbaugh, you pussy).

    I still think he's ceiling is average. But, his first decision as a coach, if it is indeed Cleveland, a tad more optimistic.

    He's always joking around with reporters. In fact at half time during the Fiesta Bowl he was asked what Kenjon ran up to tell him. He replied "That we love each other." and cracked a smile. One of the things that really got me attached to Chip his first year was during a post game interview on the field, a few fans in the area were getting rowdy trying to jump into the picture and he told them to have some respect and let them do their job. Chip will have no problem with the nfl media and I honestly beleive will have success in the nfl as a coach, provided the right resources to build a team.

  • Any team with a mobile quarterback and play makers
    In order of best fit:
    1.Eagles
    2.Panthers
    ...
    9001.Browns

    While he may end up in the browns, I dont know what he sees in a 29 year old 2nd year qb who doesnt have moves, and a bruiser runningback rather than a fast elusive tiring back.

  • I'm assuming he'll go to a passing spread over a rushing spread, if kearly's suggested trade of Geno doesn't occur. And, at least from here, Weeden seems like the type you want to operate like a human jugs machine. "Drop 5 and throw here, Stupid" maybe what their instruction to Weeden is. Weeden ran that at OSU with obvious success.

    Thad Lewis looked kinda intriguing in Week 17 for the Browns.
