- The Browns search for a new offensive coordinator is more stressful than last years search for a head coach. Marc Trestman took the OC job with the Ravens, while Chan Gailey went with the Jets.
The Browns reportedly interviewed former head coach of "The Greatest Show on Turf" Mike Martz on Monday and are expected to interview former Jets and Eagles coordinator Marty Mornhinweg this week at the Senior Bowl. To me Mornhinweg is another Pat Shurmer or should I say Mike Holmgren, since they all fell off the same (coaching) tree. Throwing the ball around in Cleveland in our weather with the offenses that are run by Mornhinweg and Martz just won't work here. At least I don't see it.
- And guess what else? The Browns probably won't get Peyton Manning or Adam Gase either. The former Bronco's OC is flying to Chicago to interview for the Bears OC job today.
- So in my opinion the top 3 candidates to land the OC job in Cleveland will be Anthony Lynn (Jets), John Defillpo (Raiders) and Brian Angelichio (Browns tight end coach).
- Tashaun Gipson has decided not to play in the Pro Bowl so he doesn't risk a setback from his season ending knee injury. Gipson announced on his twitter account yesterday "@Gipson_duos24: First want to thank GOD for the blessing of being a probowler. I also want to thank the fans that voted countless times helping along the way" "@Gipson_duos24: But unfortunately I will not be PLAYING in the game Sunday my first pro bowl!! Thank everyone for the support! #Gobrowns"
