    I'm going to wait until I see the white smoke come out of the chimney when they actually pick a new coach and go from there. I don't think that they are going to consult with us before making a decision.

    Can I state with confidence.....that at least as far as the fans are concerned (understanding that they have no voice).....there would be NO confidence at all among the fan base if Daboll were the choice?

    This is the most spot assessment of the entire situation. When put in these terms, haven't the Browns hired all of these guys in the past? They hired young coordinators, they have hired guys with titles but little real decision power and they have hired guys that built short term schemes to catch lightning in a bottle. I would have to go with McDaniels. My greatest concern is his fealty to New England. Not that he wouldn't be committed to winning, but that, if in the event of a vacancy, he would head back. Exhibit A: the way he strung out the Colts. I think he got home sick. Reich has two McDaniels hires on his staff and McDaniels never even set foot in the building. I don't care about his time in Denver. People point out Belichick's time in Cleveland as less than stellar, though rarely do they mention the 1994 team that went 11-5. Belichick, like McDaniels, also had his head fake moment with the Jets. I like the rest of you, want someone that wants to be part of the Cleveland Browns, not someone that wants to coach until Belichick retires and gets called back to Kraftland to get the band back together.

    I guess I'd go with McDaniels. He's got tons of experience and has been a head coach. I think he could put together a good coaching staff. I'm not head over heels about him, but everyone else has bigger questions surrounding them. Stefanski and Saleh are relatively green at being coordinators, Bieniemy is an OC who doesn't call players, Roman seems to really succeed with running QBs, Schwartz does have HC experience, but his Lions teams were undisciplined, young teams that often shot themselves in the foot. (Sound familiar?). Daboll feels like the human version of a consolation prize.

    RUSH was such a huge part of the soundscape of my life. There are few people in this world, and even fewer musicians that I admire. Not only for his musical abilities, not only for his command of the English language in both the lyrical and literate realms. More so for the way he carried himself. The grace in which he handled the loss of his wife AND daughter. Having endured one of the two I understand just a sliver of the strength that took. There are few people in this world that I truly admire.. But I admired that man.. RIP Mr Peart.

    The initial interviews are over (or so we believe). Who would you pick? - You're not married to your choice. None of us interviewed anybody so we don't 'really know' the candidates. Your choice could get hired and suck....and you'd be allowed to say he sucks. The hire could happen very soon, it could be after the weekend, or it could be after the last candidate exits the playoffs. McDaniels, Stefanski, Saleh, Bieniemy, Roman, Schwartz, Daboll ---------------- I'm picking Roman. I like how he adapted his side of the ball to match the talent that he currently has. I wouldn't mind having a guy overseeing the whole team with that kind of mind's eye.

    Just sharing. Whoever it is, I’m sure will be an upgrade over the last 2 hires

    This is what we are having for our Sunday GAMEDAY MEAL my wife is out picking up a few things like half & half and we're almost out of Italian seasoning. We are lucky to have a Giant Eagle for meats and deli food, etc, Aldi's, Marc's and a real gem Rulli's which is a smaller but loaded local Italian grocery store for lunch meat and cheese (they sell tons of it) and prepared food, spices and about anything else you need for cooking or baking. Two locations just ask any Boardman/Austintown area local about it. Oh all within 3 miles of our house. BAKED PARMESAN CHICKEN AND POTATOES - I haven't done a recipe in awhile. We've had recipes similar to this in the past. INGREDIENTS 6 bone-in chicken thighs (skin-on, optional) 1 pound baby Dutch potatoes, halved or quartered (or any on hand like redskins) 3-4 cups baby spinach, chopped. (we're using chopped spinach we had) 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning (optional but good if you like Italian!) Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste Fresh parsley, optional Sauce: 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth. (we prefer regular chicken broth) 1/2 cup half and half 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, grated. (we have shredded on hand) 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter 1/4 cup all-purpose flour 4 cloves garlic, minced 1 teaspoon dried thyme 1 teaspoon dried basil 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano PREPARATION Preheat oven to 400º F and lightly grease a 9×13-inch baking dish with butter or non-stick spray. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large pan or skillet over medium-high heat and sauté spinach until just wilted. Remove from heat. For the sauce: lower heat to medium and add butter to skillet. Add minced garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring frequently so it doesn’t burn. Whisk in flour and cook for 1 minute, or until roux is thick and golden brown, then slowly whisk in chicken broth until incorporated. Stir in parmesan cheese and half-and-half, and cook for another 3-5 minutes, or until thickened, then stir in thyme, basil and oregano. Season with salt and pepper. Season chicken thighs with salt and pepper and Italian seasoning and place in baking dish. Place chicken thighs skin side up in your greased baking dish, then top with sauteéd spinach and halved potatoes. Top with cream sauce, then place in oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through. Optional: broil for final 5 minutes, or until skin is crispy, if not already seared. Remove from oven and serve hot.

    Well, sleazy texie Trump hater goes off again. The TRUTH, which he can't stand, is.... John W. Huber - Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_W._Huber John W. Huber (born 1967) is an American lawyer who has served as the United States Attorney for the District of Utah since June 2015. He was first nominated for the position by President Barack Obama in February 2015. So, an obama appointee gets to "investigate" obama's/higgardly's URANIUM ONE? and sessions was a blatant coward. He feared the deep state - was happy to take the job but wouldn't do the job. Just collected a paycheck.

    Albert Breer @AlbertBreer The Browns have started reference checks and working on permission on GM candidates, per sources. The plan all along has been to pick the coach, and find a GM to pair him with. So Cleveland's working on Step 2 of its process.

    It will be Kevin Stefanski....imo, this came down to the years & money that McDaniels may want to rebuild this team his way..And am not a college coach either? They knew Stefanski's number from last season's interview..in the end, McDaniel's folded up his tent 🏕️ & went home over dollars... I like Kevin, he's a smart guy that just took his whining receiving core to "I guess it ain't all about me"
