Listen: Packers, Browns And Josh Mcdaniels discussed on WAOK Programming
"Sack jobs show. Welcome back. Show right here on CBS sports radio talking to highest state. And then talk in Packers verse Browns, Ohio State was the right move going Orion. And they could have went with the national search, maybe got a bigger name. But this is a young avait of mine right now and Ryan day, and you had in there and your building. So gene Smith, they felt comfortable with them urban Meyer loves Ryan day. You move on when urban wants to retire. Whatever the reason the main reason was you could speculate on that. And you go to Ryan day that I have no problem with whatsoever. Now what the Packers everyone that gets on their high horse and says oh Mike McCarthy should have been given the rest of the season. You could make that argument, and that's fine. But it's not a crime that Mike McCarthy got fired in the middle of the season. It's just not or towards the end of the season with four games left. I get it. The guy been there since two thousand six I get it. He's on a whole lot of games. He's been a very good coach anyone a Super Bowl, but they have four wins right now. And they're not gonna make the postseason. So if you wanted to get ahead of the game and start your research now and get rid of him. The problem with that. Why do you want to drag this guy along for the final four games when you know, you're going to fire him anyway? So they they fired. It is what it is. And the Browns we know the Browns job is still hot. And by the way, since we talked to Bruce Arians on Wednesday. And he said he's only interested Brown job and has no interest in the Packers or any other job. I don't think Bruce Arians. It'd be coaching the Browns. Now, I could see the argument he wants to be there. He has great passion for Cleveland. He's been there before he knows that division. Very well. And if you wanna bring him in maybe keep Freddie kitchens or bringing another young offensive coach to eventually replace him. I get that. But I think they're going where I was talking to Oklahoma writer excuse me for not remembering his name at the Heisman yesterday. And I said, do you think we can Riley's and play for the Browns? And he said, no, he goes, he loves Oklahoma right now. I think he makes five million a year or something like that. The reporter was saying on the new deal that he just got. I believe it was in the summer when he got that new deal. Why would you leave and there's no pressure Oklahoma? He could be the next coach of Oklahoma for the next fifteen years if he wants to so right now, I don't think Lincoln Riley is leaving. But he's going to get some offers. He is going to get some offers imagine the question is is you gotta entertain them or not. So I'm very QC the Browns bring and maybe I don't think they'll keep Greg Williams Gregson I shop at this team. That would surprise me if they did just because usually when you have an interim there. Siyam takeover. But I don't think that will be the case. I don't think Joe Philbin is gonna be the next man with the Packers. But the name that I have with the Packers. And it's a controversial one. He did an awful job. And then let his ego get in the way out with the Denver Broncos. It's mcdaniels. And here's why mcdaniels knows what it's like to deal with an intense competitor and get into arguments and have a different opinion, and he's been able to make that a healthy relationship with him and Tom Brady and look at Tom Brady. Always speaks highly of Josh mcdaniels. It wouldn't surprise me. If you put him in Green Bay. And you could make that be a relationship that can survive with Josh mcdaniels being the head coach of the Packers. However, did the Packers wanna go down that road knowing that last year, everyone said mcdaniels so the colts was done. Basically they were just waiting for the press conference after the Super Bowl loss to the eagles. And then Bella check in craft. They do their magical spell that. Makes it yourselfer wanna pass out and puke and mcdaniels as as the offensive coordinator. So will that affect Josh mcdaniels teams have short memories they do? And they think this guy could turn around and save Rogers at the end of this career and when the Super Bowl and and Roger still great quarterback. We know that. But but I mean by save is get this team back into the postseason have a chance when a Super Bowl then some team will take a shot on and it could be the Packers. So the first thing I thought. With the Packers. And the Packers job became available. Was Josh mcdaniels with the Browns. It's still a mystery to me it really is. But I think it's fascinating when you compare these two jobs, and which job would you want more right now? Do you want the Browns you could actually be more of a coach where it's not Rodgers being the biggest person on that team? Now the defense. I know it's playing better this year. When if you just look at the points per game. And if you just see the rankings the numbers last year, they were twenty second in points per game allowed and this year, they are right at twelve. But it's only an improvement. That's why it's misleading and scorings up. We know that. But it's only an improvement by. A tenth. Twenty three point nine to twenty four year ago. So it's not a great improvement. Even though the numbers when you look at the rankings are up, but that just speaks the defenses at right now. But I think it's a really interesting conversation Packers Browns because they could see someone saying, you know, what the Browns have young talent have Dorsey if you could change and turn around Cleveland, you're a hero. You're a legend statue Bill Vigo win one Super Bowl at the Packers. We all know is getting all the credit, Mr. Rogers and Aaron Rodgers it's not the coach. It's not and look up people view Mike McCarthy some Packer fans that love him lodging coach love, and we love him. We love him. And then there's others that say here two thousand six the standard is the Lombardi standard. And you win one Super Bowl when you have Aaron freaking Rogers with the way that he produces those those prolific passing numbers. It's an argument, and it's a conversation that could be had. Now like, I said the quick fix is Green Bay. Probably the quicker track to get in the postseason next year is Green Bay, but the Browns job where years ago, I would say don't touch coaches go to ruin their career Brown's shop is a good job right now war Garrett Mayfield, you have hope if a bunch of other young players on this roster. You got money to spend and you got Dorsey run in that draft the Brown. Shop is a good job. Now, I do believe Cleveland is getting closer and closer to more. Good days coming eight five five two one two four CBS eight five five two one two forty two twenty seven. We're gonna take a time out when we come back in the other side.
