I thought the same thing. If the can get Kelly Off in set up in the next 3 years the north might be in trouble. They are likely going to run system close to what the pats run.

Woah. Thank God the Redskins traded.up to grab RG3 cause with Chip Kelly, that would be a lethal combination.

I'm not worried, on the contrary, I'm quite relieved. Having watched a lot of Oregon games, I disagree with the notion that Chip Kelly does anything mind-blowing on offense. While he does use a lot of good concepts, plenty of teams use those same concepts (notably the Pats). When his offense goes up against a notable defense, his teams have fallen short on numerous occasions and I'm not talking about against Auburn. The main difference to me is the pace at they run, and that's not going to work in the NFL. The salary cap and long schedule will prevent it, it's not possible to have depth effective enough to run it, at least not on a consistent basis. On top of that, Cleveland lacks the personnel on offense to really make much of a difference. Seriously, we're not going to be scared of Old Man Weeden, are we?

And it's still Cleveland. If any organization/city/team could put the brakes on an over-hyped coach it's that one.

Weeden should be in a fast-paced offense anyway, so that makes sense.

Honestly, I am surprised that you (Poe) got second. After the draft I thought your team was doomed for failure.

You get used to it. Even posts that don't violate the rules aren't safe.

With them bringing in Chip I'm that much more relieved they didn't pony up to get RG3. They should at least be fun to watch next year.

What's the over under on the amount of time Browns' fans in general start saying they're Super Bowl favorites next year?

With Trent Richardson and the declining Steelers, it might be sooner than you would think.

There's still both the Ravens and the Bengals to overcome. And until they get a real QB, they're not contenders in today's league. Richardson isn't going to carry them to a title.

If Chip Kelly works out in Cleveland then the Browns could actually become dangerous. Their defense is already pretty good, as is their offensive line. Trent Richardson carried their offense for practically the entire season with broken ribs. I don't know about Weeden, but with a good draft this year the Browns could do some damage...

I like more competition. Makes division games more interesting. If your the best team you will beat them. The Steelers are on their way out. Big Ben is crumbling and their top players are declining while their drafts have been sub-par as of late. Add in their impending cap crisis from restructured deals for guys who aren't even playing that well anymore and well see this team implode.

The Browns still have major holes and a single head coach isn't going to change that around.

I just don't think the browns have the right personnel for chip Kelly's system, I feel like Kelly would have a better chance of succeeding with another team

I hate this. Chip Kelly is going to be the next genius NFL head coach.

Great move by the Browns, but their offense is going to have a completely different look next season.

can't see chip being able to right the ship. he was an above-average coach of a talented team that plays 3 or 4 decent games a year. i have nothing against oregon, i just think that as of late they've been almost as overrated as USC. Even worse, when chip recruited out west he would recruit people specifically to fit his scheme. cue rebuild mode, cleveland!

It's going to be a tough fight for second place between the Bengals, Browns and Steelers in the AFC North. That's certain.

Kelly doesn't have even close to the weapons he needs to run his style of offense with the Browns. Its going to be a disgusting mess and he'll probably forget to give Richardson 20 carries a game, which is what he and that offense needs to be successful.
