Browns trying to talk to Cable
Sat Jan 05, 2013 11:09 am
  • Per NFL Network, the Browns are trying to get permission to talk to Tom about being their next coach. Although I believe that they will ultimately go a different route, Chip Kelly, I would hate to see Tom go.

  • If you had to chose (unfortunately) who would you guys rather get a head coaching job, Cable or Gus?

  • Cable isn't going anywhere.

    This is his home. He has a sweet gig coaching the running side of the offense and could, somewhere down the road, become our head coach.

    The Browns would have to offer way more than they'd be willing to give up - like sacrificing their young - to get Cable to budge from the PNW.

  • I hope you are right about cable not leaving! After years of the next best line coach scenarios - he is the best I've seen and it will only get better over the next few years as we upgrade some of the talent. As for Gus, I think he's not ready to be the head coach. I also think these other teams want to get a piece of what Pete has. Pete and John have built a killer team in record time.

    If you owned a team and wanted to turn it around fast, you would think about getting any of the brain trust in Seattle.

    Cable, just like pretty much any other assistant coach in the league would leave for a head coaching job. It is silly to think otherwise.

    Hey, you are back. Is Russell Wilson still the worst QB you have ever seen? I hope I got the right guy.

  • I wish Cable would tell them, "No thanks... I'd rather work for an organization that is committed to winning, even if it means I'm only the assistant head coach. Thanks anyway."

    He'd be my hero for life. Just to have somebody call out the Browns or Bengals or Cardinals and tell them off for being cheap losers would be awesome.

  • I dont have the quote right now but Pete was asked about Cable and he made it sound like he is a big part of whats happening on offense and in between the lines said he is not going anywhere
    I would not be surprised at all if he has been promised the reigns at some point down the road to just keep him in place
    This was bound to happen with all the immediate openings...and dont be surprised if it continues
    I think JS is savvy enough to sweet talk these guys into staying in a great system even if the do interview elsewhere and get offered more money


    Wasnt there a thread last offseason about how nobody even tried to poach him
    i hope Cable punches someone else in the face soon...

  • Seems the Browns are throwing out a 5 mile net hoping to grab anyone of relevence for a interview. The guys in charge are hedgeing their bets in case they don't get the trophy fish they want.

  • Here is the quote I was thinking of...
    “Tom is a really, really committed guy in what we’re doing. That’s why we fit so well together. He’s the kind of guy that I need to carry the message about the zone running game. He’s such a good teacher that his guys know that he’s helping them, so they listen really intently and they follow.”

    Almost as silly as saying Russell Wilson is the worst QB you've ever seen....and, after all, you've seen 'em all. 8)

    why would anyone want to alter the magic at this point?

    seems to me everyone on this team would want to stay and see where it ends up, then decide?

  • Well things are getting more interesting, Adam Schefter just reported that the Browns are now continuing their coaching search without Chip Kelly in mind, meaning the Hawks better give Cable a raise if they want to make sure he stays around.

  • Cable should be the offensive coordinator for the Seahawks.

    Well... I'm not sure actually. Depends how well Russell Wilson and Tom Cable mesh.
