    I don't think the boards will like this too much, but I think it is almost surely one of two guys and I'm not sure where the smart money should go.

    1. Wade Phillips
    2. Greg Robinson

    Here's our story with the reasoning and references to the Kubes' presser. Also, a number of other interesting tidbits from the presser:

    How about John Fox?

    I can't remember how he was as a Giants coordinator

    Man, I just get tingles thinking about all the exciting changes coming...to the Cleveland Browns, of course.

    As far as potential Texans DCs...'eh, move along, nothing to see here, folks. :winky:

    Yeah, I should add him to the list. I'm still researching names and connections between coaches. It just seems obvious to me that it is going to be one of these two guys. I would like Fox, though, and he fits some of the criteria: head coach experience, success as DC... I'll do some diligence on him now.

    Wonder if Marvin Lewis if fired would have a chance, with his penchant for questionable character players..

    Cowher to the Browns. Bank on it.

    Cold city, outdoor stadium, gritty fans, a history (he was there once)....

    It's the perfect recipe.

    Isn't Greg Robinson DC at Michigan and is about to get fired for being a crap DC?

    That would be in line with the Texans though
    Hiring failures from Denver or just about anywhere
    This owner is a joke and I have said it forever

    No more crap sandwich

    Bank on something else. He'll be beating the Texans asses in short order.

    It's that connection, among others, that has me believing he is a possibility. I don't have any special knowledge that Kubiak is actually lobbying for the guy... just an educated guess based on his cryptic answers at the presser and his tendencies.

    Lewis would be on of the few hires that would excite me (if he becomes available).

    Oh lord, if this guy gets in a room with McNair, he is so hired...

    But seriously, no. Wade - maybe, I guess, under the circumstances, but Robinson? No.

    I'd be intrigued by Marvin Lewis. I mean he coached the 2000 Ravens. I'd pull the trigger if he was available.
