Originally written on Waiting For Next Year  |  Last updated 1/2/13
As the Browns start to interview candidates and whittle down the list, I was curious where Browns fans were on the list of candidates. I posted the question to our Facebook page to let everyone weigh in, and two candidates emerged as the favorites. Some of the comments were interesting too. (I will eave them unattributed because I didn’t tell anyone that their comments would be featured here.) “They would be a fool not to go after Arians. He earned his star this year in Indy, but even more so, knows how to mold QBs, was excellent with PIT, was our OC in our only play off year in new era, and most importantly he knows how to win in the AFC North.” A lot of people were torn between Arians and Kelly as well. “I’m torn between Arians and Kelly, but I went with Kelly because I am intrigued by his offense. Systems similar to him are thriving (i.e. Seattle) right now. I’m just curious what that would mean for us at QB, as we’d have to get rid of Weeden and go after a more mobile QB…Tebowmania might be coming to Cleveland if that happens.” I’ll just say no to Tebowmania right now, thank you very much. “Don’t forget Browns fans couldn’t see Arians leave fast enough. Once again stupid Cleveland/fans run a guy out of town who has success elsewhere. It doesn’t matter who they hire if you change coaches and QBs every 2 years.” Some love for Marrone too. “I think Marrone is getting unfairly overlooked because he is HC at Syracuse, but his record with the Saints and turning around the Orangemen is pretty impressive.” Lastly, some from the “Other” camp. Mike McCoy from the Broncos garnered a comment. He worked with Tim Tebow a year ago to orchestrate the win over the Steelers before hitting easy street with Peyton Manning this year. Of course Jim Tressel also got a vote of confidence, although that was roundly mocked thereafter. So we’ll see, of course. I’m of the mindset that there’s just a limited amount that we can know about these candidates without the benefit of actually interviewing them. Staring at their resumes via statistics will make you blind after awhile and rarely tells the tale, I think.
