    And there you go! Also Saunders is still on the staff right now, so make it 8.

    I've been looking everywhere for a legit source but there's nothing 100% conforming that Norv is the browns OC so as long as he's out there make it happen Reggie.

    The Browns website still shows Childress as OC.

    Isn't it funny that the leading candidate for the OC is a guy who EVERYONE can see is an absolutely horrendous fit for our players? Doesn't that sound a certain joke we just fired?

    If Martz becomes our OC, there is no reason anymore to support RM or DA in any way, shape, or form. I really hope it's all just speculation, but hiring Martz right after hiring Knapp shows that these guys have absolutely no business leading a football team. Virtually all of us were able to predict the outcome of our offense after Knapp was hired....but these "professionals" weren't. It'll be the same thing if Martz is hired. Quite frankly, I don't want people leading our team who are unable to see things that members of an internet forum can see.

    But but they're more experienced that us! WE have to stay on that Reggie-Allen Bandwagon, even if they do agree to sign some washed up old coordinator who usually gets canned within a 2 year window!

    Theres no where that says anything about martz being the leading candidate he was interviewd, the fans on this board just keep rehashing him over and over.

    Again, I just see this as an assumption until the Browns actually release to the press that Norv has officially been hired. Who knows what reasons the OL coach didn't accept a job from Andy Reid, maybe he thinks he's a jerk or a basketcase?

    I'm not saying Norv would even accept the Raiders OC job, because God knows there's tons of better options out there but that small chance that he's still available and could accept the job has my very small hopes up for now. Who knows? Maybe RM and DA are working with him now to convince him to take the job and it's just not being reported? If not, hopefully the next OC is someone that has some credibility. I think that would go a long way with the players and fanbase

    So prove me wrong? Show me how Oakland aggressively pursues a coach, or coaching staff in a timely manner. Prove to me that Oakland interviews, and hires the best possible coaches before they are hired by other teams. Show me how Oakland has a history of being the frontrunner during coaching interviews. If I'm wrong, I will send you a pic of my whine with my cheese sir.

    Are you talking bout the AD years I assume..less than 3 weeks since we canned Knapp and what? Coaches are lining up for our OC job..lots of options for coaches right now... this is not taco bell..RM will find someone he likes and pull the trigger..then you can whine some more, because that is all you have done for the last year!

    This makes sense to me. Out of all the teams looking for an OC (Browns, Cardinals, Jets, Panthers, and Raiders), Cleveland is probably the best option in terms of young offensive talent. Turner's offenses are built around a strong running game and the Brownies have a young stud in Trent Richardson. Ryan Mathews being a bust doomed Turner in San Diego.

    I'm not going to get into cheeses and whines...but the "history" you are asking about is barely 1 year. This is not Al Davis' Raiders.
