Discussion in 'Browns Talk' started by JMcCurry08, Nov 6, 2012.
Some interesting tidbits from the OBR Scout Forums Insider Page
Two nicest things to hear in this are: 1) Bernie's pending position. I do believe that Bernie has a good football mind, but I did not want him to be GM or coach and; 2) Lombardi is not getting a look.. :cheers:
If it is true that Shurmur is safe through the season that's disappointing. I'm so sick of seeing his face on the sidelines.
I take that to mean head coach. I'd have no issues with Bernie as the QB coach.
He does have a very punchable face.
What's the point in replacing him if they want to replace him with somebody they can't talk to till the end of the season (meaning under contract with another team).
If they think he's hindering the growth of young players then they can remove that bad influence. Replace him with an interim guy until they can bring in who they really want in the offseason.
I found some blurbs from Lane about Rick Mueller and Louis Riddick are two legit candidates to replace Heckert....
Blech. I don't really see either guy as an improvement.
Awesome and thank you for these. Interesting read in any event.
I want to say that I've been reading the OBR "Insiders" since 2001. These guys are NEVER right.
I agree that neither are really an improvement, but at least they'd probably keep building on the 4-3 defense instead of switching it up. I really think we're a new coach and pass rusher away from being a 9-7 team, so no need to throw away the baby with the bathwater.
Some new updates from Sunday (forgot to post them)
Had a very good relationship with Browns GM Tom Heckert and there is a growing sentiment amongst some in league circles that the Browns would have an interest if Reid is terminated in Philadelphia.
This sounds encouraging about keeping Heckert.
Tressel lives fairly nearby in Medina Co. and works at UAkron, and has regularly been seen out and about in Cleveland in the recent past (i.e. last year) so not much can necessarily be concluded from this.
Dont people pay to subscribe to the OBR? What a joke.
Apparently Haslam was having dinner with Tres at a restaurant called the Spread Eagle Tavern. Yes, I'm being serious (it actually looks like a good restaurant). http://www.spreadeagletavern.com/
So what.. If they want to pay for it, it is at least constant discussion about the team. This place lacks that kind of info (unless someone posts it) and the Browns part gets real slow at times.
I'm an on-again, off-again subscriber. I usually pay for a couple months after the off-season starts, and that's it; however, the Haslam/banner dynamic means that there might be some newsworthy things happening now....so I re-upped last week. I'm hoping to gain more insight as to how much say on personnel Banner will have as CEO.
Also, the names Lane keeps bringing up as coaches include Gruden, Reid, and Nick Saban.
Yeah same, I was subscribed during the draft/FA then stopped because it wasnt worth 10 bucks a month. Now i re-upped because it's nice hearing some hot rumors specifically on the Browns
My goodness...ten bucks a month!!!!! Hell, Netflix is $8 per, and I get a helluva lot more entertainment from that!
Someone asked Lane if he's got any more rumors this week and here was his answer
I will try and post them tonight, if not it'll be tomorrow morning
