Chud's PC demeanor

Chud's PC demeanor 


Nervous, like me doing a capablities presentation with my new boss in the room. Haslam is pretty smooth, so Chud probably felt like he was doing a book report in front of his 3rd grade class again. Kind of funny, didn't really make me think less of him. Don't necessarily want too much salesman in your football coach.

This is what i took away in the end:

Blah blah blah blah excited blah blah blah bla opportunity blah blah
attacking offense blah attacking defense bleh bleh blah
innovation blah blah bleh blah.

Now make it so.

I love the Browns and no one needs to make me watch a power point slideshow to help me understand why Steeler week is everything.

Chud is one of us.

Wake me up when we are 10 and 6...

Yep never underestimate the power in wanting to be in a situation and be successful in it.  This guy gets that all the long-suffering fan base and proud Browns fan want to resume where we were dumped in 1999.  We had a talented team coming off a playoff season with a good coaching mind and FO organization/system.  Please resume our scheduled movie in progress...

Re: Chud's PC demeanor 


I cringed when I heard him say "process," too, but mostly because of how I knew that word would resonate with the fans.  The truth is, any effort to build a consistently successful organization in any business (even sports) is a process.  There is no magic wand.  There are no magic words.  It's hard work and it requires buy in from everybody involved.  And, no, it doesn't happen overnight.

As for the "Browns fan growing up" stuff, I could care less.  I don't care whether the guy was pretending to be Ozzie Newsome or Franco Harris - just do the job for us now.

Re: Chud's PC demeanor 


I agree with Daddy. The reality is that one day he will also be fired by the Browns. Most are as few just retire. My take is that Chud has the skills to run the team on the O side of the ball, we will get better. Just concerned about the leadership skills that JH said was so important at the beginning of the PROCESS. Also, I would hate to work for Banner, what a sour puss! Don't see old Joe hanging out in the dog pound with the boys!

Re: Chud's PC demeanor 


Haslem and Banner talked about how Chud will assemble a great staff - how he has the respect around the league to bring in outstanding assistant coaches. 

Let's see who he gets as the DC to start with. I hear the favorite is Mel Tucker, who's being interviewed for the head job in Jax. I'd love to see us get Tucker, who did a great job when he was the secondary coach here.

By the way, I like it that Chud hadn't informed his parents that he got the Browns' job because he was too busy on the phone lining up interviews for his staff. This guy will hit the ground running.

SD:

LeCharles would have made a difference , but the minute he was hurt , his career was over here without ever contributing in a game.

Chud can set the bar for the entire organization ,
set the tone of play competion and type talent and his influence will extend a minimum of 3 years vs Bentley's two minutes in Camp and gone forever.

I like your Kosar analogy.  And most certainly most of us on PF didn't want that cherub Kelly.

But....the still needs to prove his merit.
There will be ups and downs and sideways rounds.

Let's see what kind of staff and scout network is built.

How do you know he can coach with good knees? By what he did in Cleveland last go around? Chud is already the savior of the franchise and still hasn't got a parking space in Berea yet. All because "he wanted to coach here" and "gets" the Steelers "rivalry"? Really? We love this guy because it was last call and we've been striking out all night and someone finally pays attention to us so they must be the one?

Browns fans will swallow anything as long it makes us feel good about our home town.

10 years ago when apple stock was hovering at 8 bucks a share and threatening to go into the tank , Tried to convince those I new who had cash going to waste to buy all they could stand , three stock splits and a couple millionaires made over night later with a stock that sells in the mid five fities those basturds who disn't listen have nothing but remorse.

Anyody can pick the sunday games with Mondays results  lump .

The fools in this case are te ones who didn't go after the job .

We have 50 million in cap , a young roster with beaucoup  experience a young coach who wants to be here  who got a thousand yards receiving and damn near 400o yards passing out of two brain dead dweebs amssing a 10 -6 record with a brain dead head coach , with a roster who overall wasn't fit for some teams practice squads .

Now years later with more training Joseph returns from Egypt to show the family what he's learned, and they're flush to take advantage.

It just feels right , that's all I can tell ya .

Rumor mill says Pagano out of San Diego for DC.

If true we're talking a very aggressive 34 , which would allow us to get after you on both sides of the ball .

Unlike Shurmur  who IMO Holmgren help put his staff together , CHUD is calling in the guys for his own dream team .

Stay tuned.

Of course its a process. The reason my stomach dropped is because it also becomes an excuse by a lot of coaching staffs for the first year mediocre to bad results.

"It's a process. We're trying to set up this organization for long term success. We might have a tough year, maybe two, but we know we're really close."  

Now I know Haslam and Banner are uncompromising and will accept nothing but significant improvements and playoff caliber teams. But if that's true, that often leads to a hair trigger if things don't go that way right away. Especially when the fans turn negative.

I like Chud. I liked what he did when he was here. I have no idea if he's ready to be a head coach. Plenty of awesome coordinators crash and burn. Maybe most of them. He is no sure thing. Hope for success, but prepare for the worst. Experience tells me off season optimism was only warranted 2 out 13 times...and neither of those two were the first year of the new coaching staff.

There were better odds before the move. Different time. Different roster.

RE: Chud's PC demeanor 


It is so refreshing that Chud talks about being flexible and only asking players to do what they do well for roles. Finally, we have a coach that seems like they are not so stubborn as to try and force players to implement the one scheme they have learned while climbing the coaching ladder. Flexible coaches (on both sides of the ball) are the ones winning now. The stubborn ones are like old men, getting pushed out of the game.

My advice is sign FAs. Lots of them.
