Found October 19, 2012 on Waiting For Next Year:
Every week, it seems that Brad Childress’ press conference delivers some peculiar nugget about his eccentric, old-school coaching style. This week’s special: He never had seen Josh Gordon play before he officially became a Cleveland Brown: (On what he saw in Gordon before they picked him in the Supplemental Draft)- “I never saw a snap of him. I got off a cruise boat and somebody said, ‘We signed Josh Gordon,’ and I said, ‘Who’s Josh Gordon?’” (On if he’s being serious of about not knowing who Gordon was)- “Honestly, yeah. That was Tom (Heckert) and Pat (Shurmur).” (On where he went on his cruise)- “Where did I go? What do they call it? Western or Eastern Caribbean, I can’t remember right now. I don’t know my islands very well, but it was my wife and I.” Childress did also mention that Gordon has evolved and improved significantly lately, but it wasn’t clear what the coach’s initial expectations may have been. Never change, Chilly, never change. Hat tip to Dawgs By Nature for posting these Browns quotes earlier this evening.
