Breakfast with Brownie

Good Morning Browns Fans!!!

First and foremost, what a national title game last night!!!!

As most of you know, Florida State beat Auburn last night 34-31, after they came back from a 21-3 deficit.  One of the

greatest college football games ever played, and the word “epic” comes to mind to describe the game.

Curious to know Browns fans, if you are still high on Auburn coach Gus Malzahn after that crushing loss his Tigers suffered against the Seminoles, after being up 21-3 at one point.  Obviously, the coach isn’t the one physically playing the game between the lines, but still would love to know your thoughts on the matter.

Speaking of coaching candidates, New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels confirmed Monday that he did in fact interview with the Browns on Saturday, but declined to elaborate on his interest in the job.

“We met and that’s about all there is at this point,” McDaniels, a Canton native, said on a conference call with Patriots reporters. “Nothing, nothing further.”

It’s going to be very interesting to see where we are in the coaching search come early next week…

New England offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels being flattered to be interviewed for another head coaching job.  “I appreciate the question, and I understand it,” said McDaniels, a Canton native. “I know that’s something that comes up each time this year for other coaches. The opportunities are certainly flattering if they come up.

“That being said, I am going to try to keep my focus on the Colts and our preparation this week. Like I’ve said in the past, I’m fortunate to have the job I have, and I love being here. I love doing what I’m doing. Each opportunity that comes along is a little different and I’m going to leave it at that and continue to put my effort and attention into the Colts this week.”

    There’s something about McDaniel’s calm that seems a bit forced, practiced and measured; like he’s trying very hard not to show any excitement.

    • Nc browns fan

      He tries very hard to be a coach but that doesn’t happen either

      • Sam Gold

        And that’s related to my comment how?

        • Mike

          A lot coaches have learned from their first stint as an NFL head coach, and others as we know ie Mangini, didn’t work. I’m not too sure one way or the other on McDaniel’s in another head coaching role. The only thing that worries me about it honestly, and I’m gonna do a piece on it, is he drafted and hand picked Tim Tebow as his franchise quarterback in his first draft with Denver. That is what scares me about McDaniel’s.

          • Sam Gold

            These replies seem to be responding to something different than my initial comment. I was referring to the concept where there’s smoke there’s fire. McDaniel’s forced calm (and hidden excitement) is the smoke coming from the fire that he is already the HC of the Browns and all the other apparent search efforts are window dressing.

            Mike, I feel very similar to you on the whole hiring of McD and second HC go-rounds and such. Found this response on a different thread and thought it was poignant for this discussion:

            “Let’s be fair: The Tebow trade up is not a valid argument. I get it’s an easy punchline, but not indicative of coaching abilities. It was an idiotic move, yes, but he won’t have drafting power. And plus, every single time I hear the Tebow drafting being thrown out, people somehow forget to mention that he also drafted Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker in the same draft as Tebow. If we disregard drafting history, fine. But otherwise, we have to give credit where credit is due.”

          • Mike

            Totally agree that he hit on the guys in the draft, but the Tebow thing scares me. And what scares me even more is Banner and Lombardi are the ones making the decision along with McDaniel’s if he is hired..Between McD and Lombardi, you have Tebow and JaMarcus Russell….not a very good track record at all. And I can tell you, Banner had nothing to do with picking players in the draft in Philly.

          • Sam Gold

            Not disagreeing that it is all concerning but I don’t think it’s ever been established just what role Lombo had in selecting Russell given who his boss was.

  • Nc browns fan

    Am I the only browns fan that hates a McDaniels hire? Come on people this would be another awful hire. Keeping chud would of been smarter than McDaniels.

  • Letterman007

    I’m with you nc, you don’t see anyone else persuing McDaniels! But they are standing in line for Malzahn, Franklin and Gase and some others!! There are three or more other openings and not one mentioning McDaniels !! After his melt down in Denver and reports I heard about his immaturity, I must question his ability to lead! This sounds like Lombardi is pushing this and I can’t bring myself to trust him! None of the Belichik tree has turned into anything but a complete waste of time!!! Not to mention the loss of the years they were in charge and the time it took to recover afterward!!
