seems like an excellent staff being put together. Woods... and Van Pelt...

"He’ll help run a version of the West Coast offense that Gary Kubiak, now the Vikings coordinator, installed in Minnesota last year with Stefanski running the offense.

It’s virtually the same scheme that Kyle Shanahan coached to a Super Bowl berth Sunday against the Chiefs."

If the Browns were to ever put a logo on their helmet, there it is...

Looking at Wiki, he's bounced around. A lot of his bouncing had to do when teams cut their entire coaching staff loose.

Alex van pelt is the quarterback van pelt that I’m thinking of. But with Brad Van Pelt the linebacker from Michigan State died in 2009

Smiled when I saw this news... and I don't know why.

Those that wanted McCarthy should be pleased with the choice... Alex spent years rotating thru the skill positions under Mike.

You don't remember Brad? Good player on a bunch of bad NYG teams. He was starting LB for NYG for about a decade including a couple seasons at the end of his NY stint opposite LT. He then spent a season of two in OAK before having a cup of coffee with us just prior to retiring. He went to a few Pro Bowls.

This is the QB from Pitt and the Buffalo Bills. Brad Van Pelt played for us at the end of his career.

Aaron Rodgers has given some very (public) high praise of Van Pelt as his QB coach.    Most notably his hard work, preparation and game day input. 

Hoping that translates to something.  I really know little about his schematic and personnel philosophy but look forward to finding out.

I am just waiting for flipping the roster upside down.

Despair is.. really not the right reaction here.

There's a time when he was a coveted hire

Rodgers didn't want to let him go

Van Pelt's impact on Cincy - "if you’re asking me who’s an early front-runner for Bengals coach of the year, it’s Van Pelt"

There's  plenty of  despair, doom and gloom  making the  rounds now.

To be fair, Jimmy's given us absolutely nothing to trust

He's brought his go-getter attitude that gave the world a kick-ass rebate program at Flying J to the Browns!

Jimmy couldn't be accountable for those rebates kind of like no one specifically could be held accountable for the clusterfuck that was The Process. I'm starting to see his never-dying love for it!

Recent Pat McManamon article in the Athletic. The site said l could share the article with a friend, so l linked above. Let me know if it holds up.

I really like this Van Pelt guy. Says real “sink your teeth into” stuff. I’ll link a cleveland.com article below that had snippets of the interview.
