Could Kyle Shanahan be a consideration for Browns offensive coordinator?
Here are some highlights:
Vic Carucci: “I really don’t know what T.J. Ward was thinking when he took out
Nathan Zegura: “It made me sick to my stomach when I saw T.J. Ward hit Josh Gordon and flip him over like that. The game was a lot more competitive and there was obviously more defense than we initially thought there would be. The Browns showed up big, though. No one had more catches than Josh Gordon, (Joe) Haden had one interception, and Ward had four tackles and an almost-interception. As a coach or a fan, though, it is a hard game to watch. Football, at its core, is a physical, intense game. But at the same time, you don’t want to see any of your guys get hurt. …There are many roads that this organization can take this offseason. I’m concerned with the offensive coordinator position. If we had kept Norv Turner, I would be thrilled right now, but it is an offensive league, so I want to make sure they get someone who has a system that has at least proven to be effective. I wouldn’t mind seeing the Browns talk to Kyle Shanahan. In the three years he was an offensive coordinator, his offense was the number eight passing offense in the league. I wouldn’t mind seeing the Browns get the wheels in motion for him as a candidate.”
Joe Gannascoli: “Sundays are special to me. You only get so many games throughout the year to cherish. Everyone knows that nothing comes between me and Sunday football. I’m happy for New York City. They get to showcase the greatest game in the greatest city.”
Je'Rod Cherry: “When I saw T.J. Ward take out Josh Gordon, I was thinking there must be some serious hostility towards those two. I kept thinking, ‘You must have no intention of coming back to Cleveland, because you will be public enemy number one if you take out our best guy.’ I think the draft selection was necessary for the Pro Bowl given what took place the last few years. Guys were just going out there and playing nice and easy with no sense of competition. The draft selection definitely amped the game up, but you never want to see your best player go down like that. I have a feeling, though, with the NFL being so safety conscience, that it is going to take one guy to go down and the league will just get rid of the Pro Bowl all together.”
