Who?

FTFA "It's been a lifelong dream to be an NFL head coach and however that opportunity presents itself is fine with me,"

Ouch! Sorry Browns fans. It's gonna be tough for Fark to come up with a better insult than that towards you.

Sad to see Pettine go, but he was only here a year so...eh.

Browns coaching search is now on day -341.
 
2014-01-23 09:05:00 PM  
And the Seahawks and Niners keep all of their coaches. Sweet.

Holy shiat! He really said that! XD

I really want this guy to succeed even though I'm not a Browns fan.  It's time for the suffering to end.

He took us from near Patriots-level to top-10 in a year. He's good. He turned Aaron Williams into a key player.

Bills now need a new DC. Seahawks and Niners staff are good places to start looking.

The Browns still have an entire staff of coaches to fill.

Schiano was in the mix? Dodged a bullet there, Browns fans.

//Pettine's a good coordinator -- wish him best of luck as a HC.

I should say, I hope the Browns do better with Pettine than with the last former Jets coach to land there.

Mike Pettine - future former head coach of the Cleveland Browns
 
2014-01-23 09:29:47 PM  
The best part about this is the Steelers got a better coach to be their OLine coach than the Browns could get to be their head coach.

I think it's more that they haven't been able to keep a dc for more than year for a while now (so the article mentions)

I wouldn't be surprised. I thought they'd make it this year before the season started. Was looking pretty good 4 games into the year but not so hot afterwards.

Actually, from what I've heard, the interview with Schiano was primarily to gauge interest in a possible role as defensive coordinator, a position that looks like it's going to Bills linebackers coach Jim O'Neil.

A team that can't keep a DC for more than a year sends him to a team that can't keep a HC for more than a year.

Poetry in motion.

Yeah, it's like when the Cards settled for Arians last year

The Bills secretly had a really good defense this year. Guy might have a chance.

From the same site, if you rank by yards per play, Buffalo was #5 in the league.  Their defense was probably hurt by their crappy offense that couldn't stay on the field or at least get good field position.

Sorry, #6.

4th-best defense according to fancy stats though.

Fair enough, but the coordinators aren't leaving for a lateral move.

This is what Browns fans say every year and it never happens, probably because they're always rushing into things, trying to do everything in a year and when it doesn't work they start all over again. They need a two year or even three year plan, develop something, tweak it over time until it works.

I'm not an optimist, I eat stats and numbers, the Browns will be in the playoffs in 2014.

There's your problem - you need more fiber in your diet.

The shiats backing up into your brain.

Underrated hire. He's not a name, therefore he sucks according to the ESPNification of sports and sports fans alike.

puffy999: Underrated hire. He's not a name, therefore he sucks according to the ESPNification of sports and sports fans alike.


FTA: Pettine, 47, was not on the Browns' original list of candidates, but he emerged as others either took themselves out of consideration or were hired elsewhere.

So everybody turns them down or takes another job and stupid sports fans such as me feel it may be a reach.

Sure, I see that.

We'll see who's right...

If I was a gambler I'd be rich. Mock away though or make a prediction? I'm guessing you're just another person with zero knowledge posting to see your own post though right?
 
2014-01-23 10:43:07 PM  
Hmmm. I I thought it was going to be Terry Francona. You know, somebody who can teach the Browns how to hit.
 
2014-01-23 10:44:12 PM  
As long as he doesn't poach the Bears WR coach Mike Groh, I'll be fine. The Bears' WR corps has been mind-bogglingly good this year, and Alshon Jeffery has credited Groh just as much as Brandon Marshall for helping to contribute to his break-out season.

/Groh was also being considered for a pretty lofty offensive coaching spot (OC even?) at Alabama earlier this month
//he can move on in a few years, I just want him to help finish developing some of the young WRs
 
2014-01-23 10:44:24 PM  
I don't believe he was the last choice I think they weighed their options and he remained their best. Think for yourself you have no idea what's going on in the NFL it was in fact an exhaustive search to find the best and he is. If you disagree name someone better fitting?

This is the greatest slam I have ever seen on Fark.

You just totally crushed me and I have zero comeback.

Out of their 12 known opponents for 2014, and giving them the benefit of the doubt, the best I can see is 5-7.

So if they win the other 4 games, sure it is possible, but not a sure thing. More like 7-9 which is certain step up.

I hope for his sake the front office hands him a good QB.  If they don't, he'll be fired in two or three seasons.

Maybe one of the guys they originally wanted? If this was their guy they could have hired almost a month ago. This is the guy who was left and was willing to take the job under that sketchy ass ownership.
