    FML. Just get Kelly and get on with this circus.

    I think the fact that they flew to Arizona to meet with Kelly shows that he is their guy. They might have liked Saban or Gruden more, but they've probably found out there is no interest through back channels.

    If they were still in the market for other coaches they wouldn't be interviewing Kelly today. They would fly him out to Cleveland and wine and dine him in a day or two. If they don't get Kelly I wouldn't expect them to end up with a bigger name unless they increase the money and power they are offering. I'm sure anyone could be had for the right price. If Kelly does pick another team I would still like to see them bring in Lovie Smith.

    How does hiring the guy that drafted Tebow in the first round make any sense? If they did go that way the better keep the defensive staff and hire a real GM.

    If Kelly says no, I'd like to see them go after Greg Roman (49ers O-Coord) or Kyle Shannahan (Skins O-Coord)

    It is strange because everything that I have read about the Browns coaching search his name as not really been brought up.

    The one thing about the tweet that was posted by starBUckS is that Josh McDaniels said that he was staying at New England. I know things can change but I certainly hope that that doesn't.

    Buckeneye With Rumple Minz, anything is possible.

    I wouldn't mind Roman at all, myself. Especially if he brings in a little bit of that "no nonsense" Harbaugh, type attitude.

    At this point I don't care who it is, as long as it isn't McDaniels.

    I would think that one of the conditions for him to return to NE would be that he would need to stick around for a few years and not jump at the first HC job that opens up otherwise why fire O'Blubberneck?

    it makes about as much sense as the third guy he listed, who said point blank that he's staying at cuse. jason cole is tossing [Mark May] on this one.

    The least scary thing about hiring Kelly would be that I think Jauron has a higher chance of being retained. The defense has been the only stable unit the past couple years with patch-work players involved. I can't see Chip trying to come in, bring much needed remedy to the offense - then have to focus on the other side of the ball (for once in his life) with a new coordinator.

    The latest was that Haslam wants to go with a "34 guy". Which is plain Jerry Jones-esque nonsense when you take a look at the defensive roster.
    The only reason Haslam wants that is because he knows the Steelers we're successful with it - not really knowning the scheme and reasons behind the success. That scares me.

    edit: The more I'm looking at players declaring, the more I'd like to see a Werner/Elam combination for our defensive picks.

    I think if the Browns do get Kelly when they are negotiating I do not think that Haslam will dictate to him what type of defense he wants to run. I don't know but I just think that if they want Kelly they are going to have to give him plenty control over the football operations and that includes the coordinators. I sure hope that Haslam does not go the Jerry Jones route.

    Also, I am probably in the minority but I would like a more aggressive DC and DJ was not that aggressive in my thinking. There is no way with this roster that we could ever go back to a 3-4.

    Devils Advocate- The only issue I see with a 3-4 is can Rubin and Winn be 3-4 DE's and can Sheard be a 3-4 OLB?

    I agree that I don't want them to go away from the 4-3.

    The Front 3 would be fine for any defense. Our LB corps is the question.
    I think a 34 with a cover 6 scheme like Pittsburgh has used would mask
    Some issues we have at safety. The qtr qtr half on the backend would
    Really benefit our inability to play deep halves.

    Jauron I think would be more aggressive with the right personnel. As of
    The moment we just play as a sound, physical unit. Match that equally with
    Talent and I think it'd be the best defense in the AFC north.
