I don't really either.

I just see one of these 6 scenarios if he does want to come back:

Cleveland
Carolina
Philadelphia
Pittsburgh
Washington
NC State

All but one of those of are playoff teams (philly is on the fence, but for argument sake, they have the potential to make the playoffs ). The Jets are also a playoff team, and could win the division. You don't fire a coach with his team in the hunt like that.

I say Romeo Jelly Donut comes back for another year and brings Andersukk with him.

Trade Quinn now - save him from a life of hopelessness that doomed Tim Couch. He should still be worth a 5th or 6th rd pick, more than you'll ever get from DA - he's now worthless
RAC will be gone after this season; he's earned that much.

As for the rest of your post: You bore me.

Well, there ya go.

One radio station rumor is the same as another.

Face it, you're in a bidding war for FG Bill.

He's no Parcells, trust me.

"Maybe next year" will be the Browns tune for the next decade no matter who they have as coach. Write that down in your kellerin' books.

What's a "kellerin' book"?

oh,

You mean a "coloring book?", I thought you were supposed to present yourself as being smarter than browns fans, and you misspell something simple like that? Sounds like someone dropped out of the 2nd grade.

I kid. I kid. It's all in fun. :)

I look for the Browns to steal their new head coach from Baltimore (Rex Ryan). There's poetic justice in that.

I hope you're kidding...

If Cleveland gets anything from Baltimore, you're going to see a lot of unhappy Browns fans.

CLAYTON SAYS COWHER UNLIKELY TO COACH BROWNS

ESPN’s John Clayton, who as far as we can tell has not broached this specific subject on ESPN.com, told a Cleveland radio station on Tuesday night that former Steelers coach Bill Cowher will most likely not become the next coach of the Browns.

In an appearance on WKNR, the Cleveland ESPN Radio affiliate, Clayton confirmed our past report that discussions have been occurred between the two sides, and he predicted that an offer would be made after the season.

“Has there been a direct conversation?” Clayton said. “Has there been an interview? No, but there are enough people talking to both sides. They will talk to him after the season. They will make him his offer. He’s probably going to turn it down.”

Our take has been that Cowher is using the Cleveland interest as a way to ensure that his name will remain at the top of the “A” list for the coming hiring cycle. Regardless of whether he’s doing it with his eyes on a potential opportunity elsewhere in 2009 or simply to ensure that his name remains in the conversation for coaching vacancies until he’s ready to return, we believe that Cowher wants to nurture the notion that, in any given year, he’s the gleaming brass ring on the NFL coaching carousel.

Clayton said that other possible arrivals are former Chargers coach Marty Schottenheimer (who could serve as coach or Parcells-style executive or both) and current Patriots V.P. of player personnel Scott Pioli, who worked for the “Browns” from 1992-95.

As to Schottenheimer, a league source points out that hiring him could allow the franchise to avoid buying out the big-money contract of offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski, who previously worked with Schottenheimer and would be more likely to remain on staff if Schottenheimer were running the show. After the team’s 10-6 performance in 2008 (which apparently was an “amorition“), Chudzinski received a deal that’s believed to be equivalent to head coach compensation in some cities in order to rebuff the interest of the Ravens in hiring him to replace Brian Billick.

The wild card in this situation is current G.M. Phil Savage. ESPN’s Chris Mortensen recently pointed out that owner Randy Lerner’s preference would be to keep Savage in the fold, but to strip him of final-say authority over the roster. Such a move would allow Lerner to avoid owing Savage a buyout of roughly $8.1 million — unless Savage quits, or is fired for cause due to his “go root for Buffalo” escapades and his role in the Kellen Winslow staph fiasco from earlier in the year.

Frankly, if Savage ends up sticking around, we think his wings would need to be dramatically clipped; as one league insider opined of Savage, “His skin’s like an onion and he loves the microphone. It’s a recipe for disaster.”
