Listen: Browns, Packers And Josh Mcdaniels discussed on Checkpoint Radio
"Back yet. It's execellent show right here on CBS sports radio. So talking to highest state and then talk in Packers versus Browns. I thought highest state was the right move going Orion day, they could have went with the national search and maybe got a bigger name. But this a young innovative mine right now and Ryan day, and you had in there in 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 can speculate on that. And you go to Ryan day that would have no problem with whatsoever. Now what the Packers you get everyone that gets on their high horse and says oh Mike McCarthy should have been given the rest of the season. You can 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 before games left. I get it. The guy's 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 want to get ahead of the game and start your research down 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 fire him. It is what it is. And the Browns we know the Browns job is still open. 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 out or any other job. I don't think Bruce Arians gonna be coaching the Browns. Now, I could see the argument he wants to be there. He is great passion for Cleveland. He's been there before he knows that division. Very well. And if you want to bring him in maybe keep Freddie kitchens bringing another young offensive coach to eventually replace him. I could get that. But I think they're going, and I was talking to Oklahoma writer excuse me for not remembering his name at the Heisman yesterday. And I said 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 gives you the 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 gonna get some offers. He is going to get some offers at the magin. The question is is it to entertain them or not? So I'm very QC the Browns bring in and and maybe I don't think they'll keep Greg Williams. Greg Gregson I shop at this team. That would surprise me if they did just because usually when you have an intern there. Takeover. But I don't think that will be the case. Now, I don't think Joe Philbin. It'd 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 let us get in the way out with the Denver Broncos it sash 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, do the Packers wanna go down that road knowing that last year, everyone said mcdaniels the colts was done. Basically they were just waiting for the press conference after the Super Bowl loss to the eagles. And then Bella checking 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 if 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. We have a chance to win the Super Bowl then some team will take a shot and it could be the Packers. So the first thing I thought of the Packers and the Packers job became available. Josh mcdaniels with the Browns. It's still a mystery to me it really is. I think it's fascinating. When you compare these two jobs and with shop 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 to 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 defense is at right now. But I think it's a really interesting conversation Packers of Browns because I could see someone saying you're not 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. Go win one Super Bowl at the Packers. We all know is getting all the credit, Mr. Rogers and Rogers, it's not the coach. It's not and look how people view Mike McCarthy. Some Packer fans love him and coach love and we love him. We love him. And then there's others that say here since two thousand six the standard is the Lombardi standard and you win one Super Bowl when you have Amran freaking Rogers with the way that he produces the 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 the postseason next year is Green Bay. But the Browns job where years ago, I would say don't touch. That's our coaches go to ruin their career Brown's shop is a good job right now. Ward Garrett Mayfield, you have hope you have a bunch of other young players on this roster. You got money to spend and you got Dorsey running that traff. The browns. Shop is a good job. Now do believe Cleveland is getting closer and closer to more.
