The perfect next coach for the Cleveland Browns (1 Viewer)

The perfect next coach for the Cleveland Browns is none other than Brian Billick. Think about it:

He has head coaching experience

He has worked with Phil Savage

He has won a Super Bowl

He knows the AFC North

Damn I am a genius.

 
Bilick?

I'd rather have Cowher or Schottenheimer rather than Billick if thats the guy you're talking bout..

But see, your best players are probably Winslow and Edwards. You traded up to acquire Quinn, who showed some signs of promise as a potential QB of the future. Billick seemed to suck in developing quarterbacks and passing games altogether. I don't think I'd want him.

Munch was talking about this on WKNR earlier today.
 
Billick would be about the worst choice. I'd prefer Marty, Chin, or Ferentz. And I don't like any of those guys! The guy we should pick is a certain DB coach for TB.

Don't say his name or you'll jinx it!

 
There are worse choices. Billick was 80-64 with BAL.
yea, but that was with about 8 pro bowlers on D for most of his tenure there.his 'thing' was being the offensive genius behind the MN glory days (Cpepp / Moss / Rob Smith), and he could NEVER come close w/ the talent he acquired in BAL. he simply rode the defensive talent he adopted, and I think the majority of NFL quality coaches coming into that environment would have done the same - if not better actually (i.e. 2+ rings) that defense was insanely good.and he's a ?'able judge of talent IMO. dude basically bet his job on moving up for kyle friggin boller - and we know how that one worked out. sure you can blame ozzie for that one, but I want NO part of Billick in CLE. he'll just waste the talent we do have.Agree we need a stellar defensive mind and a solid leader. The talent on offense should be enough to enable even a reasonably capable OC.

I guess I'm the only Billick defender in here. Yes, he had great players on defense, but give him credit for winning with them unlike others (See Cowboys 2007/2008). What Cleveland needs most now, more than a great defensive mind or play caller, is a leader who will instill discipline. The talent is there. They need a structured rigorous program (See Parcells/Sparano in Miami). Just my IMO. Npt saying Billick is only man for the job. Just don't think he's being properly respected here. Some in here probably hated Coughlin (not the sexiest coach to be sure, but runs a solid, disciplined program) as well until NYG got on track.

Only if he can talk Elvis Grbac out of retirement
 
My list:

Cowher

Schottenheimer

Andy Reid - if the Eagles for some silly reason fire him. The guy has flaws like play calling and the two-minute drill, but he also overcomes them to win year-in and year-out. He's actually not that old despite a long career in Philly.

John Gruden - Same deal as Reid. He's often seemingly rumored to be canned. Yes he has flaws. But he wins.

Steve Spagnuolo - Giants DC - his defense also harrassed the Steelers in the Giants 21-14 win.

Jason Garrett - Cowboys OC - maybe he'll be more interested in a job elsewhere this offseason.

Steve Mariucci - experienced head coach. I think Millen was the problem in Detroit more than him.

I understand your reasoning, but Billick is :meh: - probably a decent coach, motivator, and leader, but several levels below the Parcells, Cowhers, etc. He'd just continue a few more years of the same IMO. Maybe they'd be more competitive, but he's not a savior type of coach candidiate.They could do worse (i.e. Romeo), but I'd think they could do a lot better. Regardless, I'll be :fishing: when CLE gets rid of Romeo. Dude has nothing.
 
Billick is known for running a very light ship.

The Clowns are an undisciplined group in need of a kick in the ###.

Billick would be a horrible idea.

If Cowher doesn't work I want a coordinator like Spagnola or Swartz. I don't want Marty but I won't scream if that's the route we go, just not Billick.
