    A friend of mine just called to ask which of our couches is interviewing in Miami. I know that a couple weeks ago our Oline couch was going to interview for the OC job but Capers squashed it. Is he the one? :hmmm: Please say it is so. :BananaWav

    Thanks. We wrote it at the same time. Why let him interview but not our Oline coach? That doesn't seem right.


    Vinny can you merge posts?

    Grantham already interviewed once with the Dolphins who supposedly at the time did not make him an offer. Grantham has now interviewed again with the Dolphins and has interviewed with the Browns and may be considering offers from both to be defensive coordinator.

    Possibly because the Texans felt Grantham after having been here three years had fulfilled most of his contract and deserved the opportunity and Pendry has only been here one year.

    Or maybe their just desperate for a DC coach. I mean, Browns hired Cowboys OC Maurice Carthon. He used to be a running back, he is not a good OC.

    Carthon is highly respected in NFL circles.

    Granham is a relatiely young coach getting his first opportunities to move up to coordinator. Pendry has has plenty of opportunity to be a coordinator in the league. One line of thought also is that the Texans may not have wanted to lose two assistant coaches at the same time.

    I read alot, follow the NFL as close as anyone, have developed several loose contacts (mostly swapping emails with some folks who have come to know me and trust me a bit) over the 4 decades or so that I have been an NFL fan, and form opinions about several players, coaches and front office people. That's how. Carthon is known as a no nonsense hard working type who is an excellent communicator with his players. He is the kind of coach the players listen to and respect.

    Looks like he will have a chance to prove it in Cleveland. All I know is that he is considered a players kind of coach (guys supposedly play hard for him) and is well thought of.
