don’t know, however some new names have entered the fold.

Depending on who you talk to, it seems Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels is still the favorite and leading the pack for the Browns job.

On the flip side, reports have now come out that the Browns brass are very interested in Auburn’s Gus Malzahn and Vanderbilts’ James Franklin.

The Browns started their interview process yesterday, interviewing Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn in Seattle.  Quinn’s Seahawks defense finished first in the NFL this year, so his name has become a hot commodity in the coaching search for several teams.

After the early success of Chip Kelly with the Philadelphia Eagles this year, it is only expected that some big name college coaches, with their special brand of offense would be in the mix to snag an NFL job.  Malzahn, actually published a book and instructional video in 2003 entitled Hurry Up No Huddle: An Offensive Philosophy.

Which way will the Browns go in their coaching search, I’m not sure, but we should find out sooner,  rather than later….

Brownie Bites

 

Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater on forgoing his Senior year and entering the NFL draft in May.

“These past three years have allowed me to mature as a person and leave the university as better person and with my degree in hand, which was one of my goals,” Bridgewater said in the statement.

“I will cherish every moment on the field and off the field, and every bond that I built. I will forever represent the university with the utmost pride and respect.”

 

South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney on forgoing his Senior year and entering the NFL draft in May as well.  “Before we even put the pads on, I thought we’ve only got 60 minutes and it’s over with,” he said. “I’m going to be sad about it. … I’m excited to move forward with my life, though.”

>Ah my friend Sean seems to have made up his mind of who he would like to see the Browns draft in the 2014 NFL draft.

 

 

>Had to post this one since it goes along with the coaching search.  Ryan believes if Auburns Malzahn became Browns coach he would be pretty interested in “Touchdown Johnny”

    Manziel is not the typical nfl qb he will get snapped in half, at best bet he would be a wildcat qb, I pray the browns don’t pick him.

  • Sam Gold

    FWIW, everybody’s talking now about what a great job Kelly has done in Philly. However, it was only a few weeks ago that he wasn’t being viewed so glowingly. It wasn’t until he “stumbled” into Foles that they took off. Amazing what a competent QB can do for your HC.

  • Mike

    I can also say Matt that I am not a Manziel fan at all..I get that he wins and has that something about him, but I just don’t think with his size and the way he runs, that he would last. Not too mention, if people want to compare to Brees and Wilson bc of size, that is where it ends. Wilson and Brees have pinpoint accuracy, Manziel does not, IMO. Sam I agree, Kelly’s offense was not as efficient with Vick running it. I’m interested to see if the Saints take a page out of the Cowboys playbook against McCoy this week. In the second half, they made an adjustment and shut him down and made it much harder for that offense to move the ball.

    The Browns need a face to the franchise, Manziel has that something you need, that “it” thing, but I too worry about him being hit and suffering the same as RGIII ? I wasn’t overwhelmed by Bortles either. He can run but his passing leaves a lot to be desired !! Carr didn’t look that good either. His passing was off and he looked a little overwhelmed, Right now it’s up in the air who would be best??

    • Pete Smith

      As much as I’d like the Browns to load up on cliches, I’d rather they just assemble a good football team.

      • Letterman007

        Load up on cliches, I too would like to see a winner!! You are too focused on who you like and need to leave room for other opinions!! We all know the QB position is a crap shoot and it depends on who they have around them and the system they are in . Are the Browns going back to a 4-3 or staying a 3-4 team. Will they need to change defensive personnel again? There are many questions for this FO to answer ! We can sit here and go back and forth all we want, but answering these questions isn’t up to us, I just hope these three have enough sense to know what they are doing? So far I haven’t seen much and that worries me!!
