@RapSheet: Sources: The #Browns are planning to hire #Vikings OC Kevin Stefanski as their new head coach. Runner-up last year, winner this year.
Which franchise is worse...

Knicks or Browns?

Can see Shurmur head back to Minnesota as OC
Lmfao at Josh McDaniels

Dream job? Hahahahaha. He absolutely blew it this cycle
Man, McDaniels must be atrocious at interviewing

McDaniels is portrayed as this super candidate  
Oscar : 1/12/2020 12:09 pm : link
But this year he got one interview and was passed over. Now, the Browns have given no indication they actually know what theyíre doing with these decisions but I still think thatís notable.
Likely means Kubiak becomes OC?

Wow

After that ass kicking Saleh put on him yesterday?

Zimmer probably canít wait to hire Shurmur

I wonder how much his attitude and what he did to the colts is doing to him. He will stay in NE and eventually take over for Bill.
Backlash on McDaniels over his Colts antics...

...the Browns owner was pretty clear that he and his wife would have a say in football decisions. Maybe McDaniels told Haslam that wouldn't work?
Iím gonna guess  
Saos1n : 1/12/2020 12:15 pm : link
Kubiak as OC in Minnesota and Shurmur as OC in Cleveland. Although, the Beckham situation could play a part in that

It does seem to going against him. Three teams scheduled an interview with him, and he was the last interview for each, with the Giants and Panthers cancelling. Seemed more like a last resort for teams. Also, Rhule and him share an agent, and the agent was negotiating leading up to McDaniels interview with the Oanthers and didnít give him a heads up. And then on Friday, the guys he was planning on forming a staff with, joined other teams. Karma got him

I can't see Shurmur going back to Cleveland. Minnesota yes, but not Cleveland
Decent enough hire

Anything is better than Kitchens. McDaniels will never leave NE
How long

Until people In the media starting bitching about Caldwell and Bieniemy not getting a head coaching job.. but according to Wikipedia Bieniemy is the browns head coach

Wikipedia can be changed by anybody. I just changed Andy Reid to the Browns HC.

I donít think itís that. I think he just wants too much control and teams are hesitant on giving him it.

This hire smells like atypical OC that will be a failure within two years.

I think Kubiak likes his job as the AHC  
Tim in Eternal Blue : 1/12/2020 12:36 pm : link
And offensive advisor.

Shurmur going back to Minn makes a lot of sense. No chance he goes back to CLE. No fucking chance
I canít wait to hear what Stevie A and ESPN have to say about this.

I feel bad for the Cleveland fans ... the folks who live there are really nice people.
Browns must have been sold  
black aces : 1/12/2020 1:02 pm : link
after the eight 3 and outs yesterday
not taking anything away from Saleh  
bc4life : 1/12/2020 1:05 pm : link
but his defensive front line is all 1st rounders and they added Dee Ford.

Brown's owners wanted Stefanski last year but former GM dug in his feet and insisted on Kitchens.

Wouldn't that show he is atrocious at interviewing though. He comes in and asks for power but everything about him screams he doesn't deserve it. Lack of self-awareness

Stefanski called an awful game vs SF  
ColHowPepper : 1/12/2020 1:42 pm : link
Cook petty much bottled up, so OC is calling steady diet of screens (49ers LBs controlled those) or slow developing patterns that had Cousins under pressure continuously. Had to mix in more slants or quick outs to slow the pass rush (imho).

Did you watch ESPN last week? It was literally a whole day worth of narratives by the talking heads after the Giants announced Judge. All day about the Rooney rule and this hiring cycle skipping minorities. Some good takes, and some horrible ones, but in the end... facts are the facts. NFL owners are not hiring minority coaches or FO people.
Stefanski hires after a brutal game  
UConn4523 : 1/12/2020 1:53 pm : link
just like Shurmur.
This may be more about Stefanski  
Giantimistic : 1/12/2020 1:55 pm : link
He is who the Browns wanted last year but Dorsey wanted Kitchens. That being said, the only place mcdaniels is getting the full control he wants is New England so he may just wait it out.

Yeah. Haslam is a clown show and McDaniels may have only wanted to work with his wife.

McDaniels is the last person who should tell others they shouldn't be making decisions
If Shurmur follows Stefanski  
TheWalrus : 1/12/2020 2:58 pm : link
It will be Shurmur and Stefanski coaching OBJ just like we all drew it up this time two years ago.


Apparently the Bears are after Shurmur too.
I understand the Browns' fans  
Festina Lente : 1/12/2020 3:01 pm : link
trepidation regarding this hire (especially given their track record) but no one here really knows how any of this will play out. I probably would be underwhelmed as well, tbh but only time will tell.
The Giants

Have won 4 Super Bowls in the last 33 years. To suggest they are one of the worst franchises in the league, despite recent struggles, is ludicrous.

Actually if it were me I'd prefer it. He knows the org and the system, he would inherit the entire setup minus whoever he wants to dump or the people who might follow BB out the door. He's already got the trust of the owner. He's also part owner of the pelts on the wall.

The only downside would be Belichick's shadow, which all things considered would probably be tolerable since nobody expects anyone to follow up BB with much success.

How any fan of the Giants for as long as you have been can look at their history and make such a statement is a mystery as well.
