    BTW:

    Eagles made Kelly one of 10 highest paid NFL coaches, giving him a 5-yr deal worth right around $32.5 million, an average of $6.5m per year.
    I'm becoming happier & happier that the Browns passed.

    That's almost as bad as hiring Lombardi to make personnel decisions :o

    I'm not even saying anything. On the outside, it looks like blasphemy. I don't want to look back and say it would fail for sure if Pat learns how to incorporate an up-tempo offense into his scheme.

    I will say, though, that the Fritz Shurmur's nephew thing seems to be giving Pat ample chances to get it right.

    The whole Shurmur thing doesn't make any sense except he's not the type to headbutt with a rookie HC and he's the highest profile guy that would accept without needing playcalling duties. Other than that, looking like Chip Kelly is in over his head with respect to filling out a coaching staff. This is something mentioned that could be an issue with hiring Kelly a couple weeks ago. Just a strange hire. They're so completely different maybe they rub off on each other and Pat learns something, Kelly can run that team into the ground for all I care though.

    Chip Kelly was 'too big a gamble,' Browns' Joe Banner tells SI

    By Mary Kay Cabot

    Hiring Oregon's Chip Kelly was too much of a gamble for the Browns, CEO Joe Banner told Sports Illustrated's Peter King.

    "We removed ourselves from the process," Banner said. "We really liked Chip. He's intriguing, a very different thinker, and very smart. But you could see he was uncertain what he wanted to do. He may be in Philadelphia 10 years or longer and have a terrific career. But the fact he committed to Tampa Bay last year, backed out, then seemed all year to be leaning toward going to the NFL, then being so uncertain with us, we just felt it was too big a gamble. If there was no ambivalence, we may have offered him the job.''

    The Browns interviewed Kelly for seven hours in Arizona on Jan. 4 and were reportedly close to a deal at one point. But Banner and owner Jimmy Haslam left Arizona two days later, with sources close to the situation saying they walked away because they feared Kelly's heart wasn't 100% into leaving Oregon.

    Later that night it was announced that he was staying at the university. But the Eagles, who interviewed Kelly for nine hours in Arizona a day after the Browns did, landed Kelly last week. Both Eagles owner Jeff Lurie and Kelly said his decision came down to Oregon and the Eagles.

    I mean, why not take one of the brightest offensive minds in football and pair him up with one of the dullest offensive minds in football? It would make a great sitcom!

    It is interesting that Kelly can't find a true superstar staff to work with him in Philly.

    "He likes to set up the pass with the run, but HE likes to set up the run with the pass! He likes to go for it on fourth downs in the red zone and HE likes to go for it only on hopeless fourth downs... it's... THE ODD COUPLE!"

    Seriously, if Shurmur is the kind of offensive mind with which Kelly wants to be associated... I'm glad he's in Philly and not in Cleveland.

    So, where are all the posters chastising the FO for not getting their man because he chose OU first, and then PHI later, over us? Seems to me the ball was in our court and we were the ones who said not thanks to Kelly. I'm not sold on Banner yet, but with Kelly going back n forth, hiring Shurmur, etc. it is beginning to look like we may have been the fortunate ones here.

    I will be watching the whole PHI thing very closely these next couple years. Seems to have the makings of a complete self-implosion that we have become accustomed to in CLE. If any city can see one coming, it would be us.

    i cant lie every time i check this thread i fully expect to read that kelly decided to go back to oregon, or rather a least not go to the eagles.

    without a doubt the browns made the correct decision in passing on kelly

    Billy Davis was our LB coach... thoughts? Gotta be honest, don't think I've ever heard anything about him from his time with the Browns.
