    If they're hiring Mangini I really can't see Pioli going there...

    Perhaps continued mediocrity is what the Browns are looking for and maybe this dissuades Pioli from leaving.

    I don't know.. Other than Bill Cowher, who are the real gems out there as far as coaching names are concerned? There's only so many great coaches in the league, and those guys tend to stay gainfully employed.

    Awesome, keep another AFC team out of contention and further tarnish the legacy that is Eric Mangini.

    I think Mangini's sentence has been served. Public derision, firing, etc...

    Odds are those hard lessons have been good for him. Perhaps he'll do well, and I wouldn't begrudge him of it.

    there is speculation that if Pioli goes to cleveland, McDaniels will be the head coach and Mangini the defensive coordinator.
    Romeo may be a special defensive consultant for the browns.

    Well, I still hate the guy. That said, my dislike of him doesn't necessarily mean he's as awful a coach as we wish he was. I still think he could be a good NFL head coach one day, I just don't think he was nearly ready for prime time.

    Some who's been a perennial doormat would be well-served to bring Marty Shottenheimer in.

    I'd hire Marty in a second if my team sucked. He hasn't won the big one (although it's debatable how much "The Fumble" in Cleveland and "The Fumble" caused by Troy Brown were his fault) but at least he gets to big games.

    As the saying goes, with Schottenhimer you can't win the big one; but when he leaves you can't win the little ones.

    I don't think he was straight terrible in NY. I think to hire him right now is a mistake. Lets him sit back as a DC the next couple years becoming a better, older coach and then I might look at him.

    Shouldn't they be interviewing potential GM's first, and then after he's hired get his input in to the hiring of the coach?

    Who is this fellow, "Eric Mangini"? I seem to recall a certain Tubby Ratfink who once coached the New Jersey Green Beans. Is that who Cleveland is interested in?

    Wasn't Cleveland the franchise that didn't think Bill Belichick was a very good coach ? In that light this move makes perfect sense !

    Exactly. What kind of maroon interviews for his head coach and THEN for his GM?

    Lerner is afraid that the GM will hire the guy the GM feels is best, and obviously that isn't okay with Lerner. Lerner wants HIS guy to be coach.

    Browns are on the way to joining the Bengals, Lions, and Cardinals as perennial losers.

    They should hire Mangini and then Piloli so that Pioli will have the pleasure of firing him.

    I think that Mangini will learn from this and ultimately be a very good NFL coach.

    I don't doubt that Mangini can be a good head coach sometime, but like others have said, I don't see why the Browns feel they have to rush into things. Maybe they are doing their due diligence and spreading their net wide, but I would think that they'd focus on GM first.

    He would still be coaching the Jets if Favre didn't ruin the season. You could do much worse then having Mangini as your head coach. He needed better coordinators and I'm sure in his second job he will do much better.

    I don't.

    He still needs to pay Belichick $500,000 and then perform Seppuku.

    I could actually see them using this logic: Well BB failed with us and then was terrific, let's get a coach who failed somewhere else and have him be terrific for us! Losers, I feel so bad for their fans.

    And I do not get the Mangina love here. He took what he was able to learn from BB and parlayed that into a few wins. Once he was done with what he learned from BB he was sunk. He cannot adjust his gameplan mid-game to save his life, and he did nothing to improve that defense, nothing. Not to mention that he cannot find his own personality, his little choir boy voice at his press conferences screamed "phoney!" Say what you want about BB, he has never tried to be anything he is not. Eric TRIED to be mini-BB and FAILED, he will never ever have success as a head coach, just because someone was stupid enough to hire him once does not mean it is inevitible that he will ever be any good.

    A few of my favorite things, and an excellent beginning.

    Add in a job in which he gets to wear a Chuck E. Cheese costume for two or three years, followed by a one or two year stint with the NFL equipment manager cleaning jocks . . . and I still would not allow him back as a coach.

    He had exactly 1 year as a coordinator and made the bad decision to jump to head coach when a hated rival offered him the job (in part I suspect to screw Belichick, not because Mangini was that good). He lacked the experience of running a team and it showed this year when his veterans quit on him at the end of the season. Belichick offered him a chance to learn the trade and he played the prodigal son. A team that hires him hires a sub-.500 coach who has not demonstrated the ability to succeed without Belichick. Good teams don't do that.
