    There are 32 NFL head-coaching jobs. Even the worst of the lot is very valuable. They're almost impossible to get. And almost all of them pay more than what any NFL assistant coach makes.

    And the Cleveland Browns can't get anyone to be their head coach.

    Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase, a 35-year-old who had never risen above position coach until this season, has told the Browns he isn't interested according to the Denver Post's Mike Klis.

    It's what they get. Absolutely no valid reason for them to trade Trent Richardson and then fire the coach after one season.

    If I were running the Browns, I'd go after Rob Ryan.

    Time will tell but I think the Browns getting a 1st rounder for Richardson was great. He averaged a measly 2.9 ypc after the trade and didn't really make an impact. Plus you don't need a 1st round RB anymore and can find a serviceable one in the later rounds.

    According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Browns officials left Mobile, Ala., last night, prepared to interview another candidate this morning.

    That came after reports from a pair of Buffalo News writers that their second interview with Bills defensive coordinator Mike Pettine last night had gone so well, that it appeared Pettine was getting the job.

    Cabot described those reports as “premature,” and the Browns do still have work to do.

    Joe banner effect.

    People don't like the guy.

    Mike Lombardi spent a bunch of years bad mouthing every organization except Philly and New England in the media and he doesn't seem like the greatest guy to work with.

    I'd put out a call to Gary Kubiak.

    That's not what I'm saying. I too think it was a great trade for Cleveland, but you can't trade a player that means that much to your offense and then fire the coach one season into his tenure with the team. Either keep the best 53 and hold him accountable (still a mistake in year 1) or make moves for the future and be okay with 4-12.

    How desperate do you have to be if you're interviewing special-teams coaches for the HC job.

    Essentially what happened with John Harbaugh and that worked out well enough.

    Wow didn't know he was hired after only being an ST coach. Kudos to him and them.

    He was a ST coach for like 10 years and then, if I remember correctly, Reid agreed to elevate him to the db coach for a season so he could get an interview and after that season they hired him.

    I am not sure I would leave Denver and Manning only to get fired in Cleveland a year later either.

    I thought the Browns were quarterback-close two years ago. The Weeden-Richardson selections were just horrible picks. Couple that with the coaching carousel, and it's the epitome of a poorly run franchise. Just depressing if you're a Browns fan.

    This is how bad the Browns are--they passed on players like Julio Jones and Robert Griffin and took players like Brandon Weeden and Trent Richardson.

    It's becoming increasingly clear--1st round running backs are generally a waste of a pick.

    Can you imagine how good they'd be right now with adequate picks?
    And, yeah, first-round RB not named Adrian Peterson? No, thank you. Even if they pan out, you can find guys every bit as good elsewhere. Richardson was a horrible pick because of position alone, and I thought so at the time. Though I did think he'd be a better player than he's turned out to be, so far.

    How did the Browns pass on Robert Griffin if he was already gone when they drafted at #3 overall?

    Normally, if an assistant turns down an HC job it is becasue either 1) that person anticipates getting an offer he prefers more (numnerous examples) or 2) he just does not want to be a head coach (see Kiffen at this stage in his career).

    The Browns HC job has to the potential to be a very good gig.

    Cleveland passed on Julio Jones and got 5 picks in return in a trade with Atlanta. That is a good deal.
