    So, just saw the ticker report that the Browns are working overtime to get Marty back in Cleveland to replace Romeo Crennel. I wonder if he takes the job?

    Well, during the Faider game they had a phone interview with Marty. He basically said he has no intentions of coaching again because he's so happy spending time with his family. Of course, I'm of the firm belief that everybody has a price, so who knows?

    I think he might take it, especially since there is a core of talent there so it's not like he has to rebuild from zero.

    He could do a 4-6yr stint, turn the team around, get a shot at getting over the hump and then ride off into the sunset. Even if all he does is make them competitive it won't hurt his rep any :icon_shrug:

    I'd like to see him get to the big dance... too bad the Browns aren't in the NFC tho...

    Marty was on ESPN Radio on Friday telling Colin Cowherd there was a minimal chance he'd ever coach again, that he wanted to spend time with his family, that it would have to be a real special situation for him to even consider.


    I'd say there is a 1% chance Marty takes over a dunce squad like the Browns. The only jobs I can see him even considering (where coaches are in trouble) are maybe Philly, Seattle, or Jacksonville and thats only because of the level of talent.

    Sources: Browns eye Schottenheimer for 2009

    By Chris Mortensen
    ESPN.com

    Updated: December 7, 2008, 1:16 PM ET

    The Cleveland Browns are formulating a plan that ultimately could lead to the return of Marty Schottenheimer as their coach for the 2009 season, according to sources.

    The Browns would also be open to considering Bill Cowher if he sends stronger signals that he's ready to return, the sources said.

    The Browns plan to fire coach Romeo Crennel after a disappointing year, regardless of injuries the team has suffered, the sources said. Pubicly, owner Randy Lerner has only said he will evaluate Crennel after the season.

    The future of general manager Phil Savage also has been the source of speculation by various media outlets. Sources said Lerner prefers to retain Savage to run his personnel department but could scale back his overall duties, which include the final say on all roster moves.

    Before the 2008 season, Savage signed a four-year contract extension for an average of
    $2.7 million per year, the sources said.

    That would be a good fit.
    a.) Nobody else has been able to get the Browns going since they've come back to Cleveland.
    b.) They have a lot of young and inexperienced guys.
    c.) They need more building through the draft.

    All of those combined are deffinetly a Marty type of situation. :yes:

    And we'd definitely be able to chalk up an automatic L for Oakland's matchup with them next year. :lol:
