Josh McDaniels a Possible Candidate to Coach the Browns in 2013

So Browns fans – how do you feel about Josh McDaniels as the Browns coach in 2013?

It could happen, as CEO Joe Banner said yesterday he would act quickly after the season on the futures of GM Tom Heckert and head coach Pat Shurmur.

Reports say Banner will hire former Eagles employee Mike Lombardi, a past Browns Director of Pro Personnel under Bill Belichick, to be his GM.

The Boston Globe reported that Banner likes Lombardi because of ties to former Browns assistant and Alabama head coach Nick Saban, Oregon’s Chip Kelly or New England offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, the Canton-McKinley High and John Carroll product.

A source said that McDaniels, who coached the Broncos in 2009, would jump at the chance to coach the Browns.

    It looks like we have taken one step forward and two steps back. We have Heckert getting some good young talent to build on and now Banner wants an idiot yes man to replace him. Mike Lombardi who has been out of a personnel position for over 4 years, had picks such as Jamarcus Russel and saying Josh Gordon was a wasted pick. He is on the NFL network because no self respecting team wants him. 4 teams 4 firings. Should tell you something.

    We have a guy who knows what the team has, needs and wants to be here, but hey lets get rid of one of the guys that has started to mold this young up and coming team for a has been hack. Hell I would even go as far as saying give Shurmur another year, the team has and is still playing hard. I would insist on an OC that actually calls the plays and give McCoy an actual shot at the job. He also has to tailor the offense to the abilities of his QB, not the other way around, that is why RG III and Luck have been flourishing, because their coaches are tailoring the offense to them.

    As far as McDaniels, I do not know whether or not he has matured or not, but everyone says he is running the NE offense, well, he is coaching Brady, how much coaching do you really think is going on there. Belicheck is not overloading McD and he still has the final say on anything that goes on there.

    Mr. Haslam paid 1 billion dollars for the Browns and he can do with them as he wishes. He said he wants to get the fan base excited about the Browns again, well sir, with these possible choices you will get a reaction from the fan base, they won’t be excited as I have read nothing in any comments ANYWHERE that the fans would be excited about these choices. They ALL have been the same reaction as I have stated here, fans resigning themselves to yet another year of disappointment and pain. Could we be wrong, sure, but a four time loser, a power hungry Pres and a coach who seems to be a better coordinator than HC when he doesn’t have too much on his plate doesn’t bode well for us.

    McDaniels has already been a failure once! We already had that worthless POS Crennell from that Belichick coaching tree! Weiss was a failure at ND and now at Kansas! My point being just because these douch bags were good components as assistants to a great head coach did not make them successfull head coaches! Although Saban did not do great with the Dolphins he showed he was on the right track and there is no doubt he is a winner as he is about to get his third title in the last four years at Bama! I wish Heckert could stay on at GM, but i think he is all but gone.
