    Never let your guy get on a plane to interview somewhere else, unless you don't really think he's your guy. Seal the deal.

    If its Kelly. Then so be it. I just don't want Lombardi
    To have any say in personnel, let alone be apart of this
    Franchise.

    Report: Colt McCoy in Chip Kelly's plans

    It looks as though owner Jimmy Haslam III, C.E.O. Joe Banner, and the Browns organization have found their next head coach and his name is Chip Kelly. The next big question to be answered, however, is who will be the quarterback? A source in the Browns' organization told ESPN Cleveland that just over a week ago Banner told backup quarterback Colt McCoy he is "in the next head coach's plans." Adam Caplan of Sirius/XM NFL Radio reported earlier tonight that Michael Lombardi, who is rumored to be the next GM, has already been angling for the Browns in free agency. If you combine both of these reports it is pretty obvious that the Kelly/Lombardi regime did not just materialize in the last 24 hours. As far as Brandon Weeden, who started all but one game for the Browns last season, he may end up the odd man out.

    I love Colt. But I'm beginning to believe he can't be an NFL QB in any offense. His showing against the Broncos was very putrid. I'm not saying it isn't possible - but if Chip Kelly plans on running a "Spread-option" with Colt at the trigger man either two things will happen.

    The Browns will become an even bigger clown-show than what we are by being the Franchise that hired the head-coach who tried to revolutionize NFL offenses while falling flat on his face.

    Or

    A god damned miracle will occur that gives McCoy back his arm-strength and field vision.

    I'd be voting the former in this case. If Lombardi is allowed at GM, then the NFL will bear witness to EPIC drafting/roster failures that will put the situation
    in Oakland and Jacksonville to shame.

    Right now the Browns have asked permission to interview the Vikings asst. GM for our GM spot. I don't care if that bastard had a hand in drafting Christian Ponder- I'd take him over Lombardi.

    i shouldnt be saying this because there is no excuse, but IN FAIRNESS to Banner, Kelly did say he wanted to meet with all 3 teams because he only met with one NFL team last year and said it was a mistake...but WTF

    Apparently Browns are deciding between Kelly and Marrone. "It's neck and neck"....what? While that's happening the Browns interviewed Marrone again, and the Eagles interviewed Kelly

    Stupid.

    Chip Kelly was supposed to meet with the Browns last night, but that didn't happen and I'm getting worried.

    He's down to deciding on the Browns, the Eagles, and Oregon. I'm hoping the Browns will be able to get back in touch with him today and seal the deal. It looks like his salary is being offered at around 8 million per year with some control.

    It's a go big or go home strategy, but I honestly think he's a great one to hire for long term. The rewards are outweighing the risks in this situation.

    Early this morning in Arizona, Oregon head coach Chip Kelly was still deciding between the Browns and Eagles -- or even a possible return to the Ducks, a league source said.
    One thing became clear in this epic battle between the Browns and Eagles: Syracuse coach Doug Marrone is off the table as Plan B for both clubs.
    Marrone, who interviewed twice with the Browns in Arizona and was believed to have talked to the Chargers, agreed to become head coach of the Bills at about 6 a.m., according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
    The Eagles planned to interview Marrone if they didn't land Kelly, a source said.
    The Browns hoped to make Kelly their head coach during a dinner meeting last night, but the Philadelphia Eagles played keep away instead.
    By 11 p.m. eastern, Kelly was still meeting with the Eagles, who were trying to sign him to a long-term deal, a league source told the Plain Dealer.
    Finally, at about 12:18 a.m., the Eagles emerged from their session with Kelly -- after a nine-hour session, according to Adam Caplan of Sirus XM radio. They failed to strike a deal, but Mike Garafolo of USA Today was told it wasn't the end of communication between the Eagles and Kelly.

    The Browns -- represented by owner Jimmy Haslam and CEO Joe Banner -- are determined not to let their Duck fly away this time.
