Hardest division? Maybe last year.

Ray Lewis is retiring, their offense is mercurial and Flacco might not be their QB in 2014, let alone 2013.

Steelers might lose their OC for the 2nd year in a row, Heath Miller just tore 2 or all 3 of the major knee ligaments in the final game of the year, Wallace might not be on their team next season either. Their defense is crumbling as no one can stay healthy and is only getting older, nobody registered more then 5 sacks. They have no running game and will probably let Mendenhall walk

The Bengals are a wildcard contender with a mercurial running game and their defense will not generate the same kind of pressure every season like they are this year.(See 2011 & 2012 49ers as a perfect example).

The Browns could very easily and immediately vie for wildcard berth with nothing but better coaching and consistency on defense.
@MaryKayCabot: #Browns not meeting with #Oregon's Chip Kelly yet because he's still with the #Eagles
Chip Kelly won't last 2 years in the NFL. What's going to happen when he goes 5-11 and say USC calls?

I can see Cleveland bringing in Kelly signing Vick then watching it all fall apart. At least for a few months they'll be optimistic.
@MikeGarafolo: Meeting is over indeed. I'm told that's not the end of communication between Eagles + Kelly.
@RapSheet: RT @RoobCSN: OK, now THIS is interesting. I'm told by league source Eagles still planning to meet tomorrow with McCoy and Marrone. So there's that

you must be joking
Not sure if true but on another MB someone posted this..

Just saw on Twitter Kelly has agreed to a 5 year
65 million dollar contract with the Eagles! This according to CBS Sports. Kelly was supposed to interview with the Browns tonight. They never got to talk to him.

The Browns have told Ray Horton to prepare for a second interview. Cleveland will target Horton if negotiations with Chip Kelly break down.

Whoa. That can't be true lol. $13 mil per year is insane. Belichick is currently the highest paid coach at $7.5 mil annually.

Yeah that alone should tell you that it's likely not true. Remember when we had all those tweets about Harbaugh asking for $10M+?

bump for update

The Cleveland Browns' coaching search apparently has encountered a blue screen.

With reports from Friday night that Chip Kelly is close to a deal to become the Browns' new coach not coming to fruition, the Browns will now return from Arizona to Cleveland and "reboot" their search, according to Chris Mortensen of ESPN.

Per Mort, that'll happen without Oregon coach Chip Kelly in the plans.

At this point, it's impossible to distinguish truth from posturing. With Kelly's agent, David Dunn, trying his damnedest to maximize the market for Kelly by pitting the Browns against the Eagles, the Browns may now be deliberately feigning disinterest.

Or maybe the Browns hope to create the impression that they never really wanted Kelly to begin with.

It's a delicate business, with teams hoping to eventually declare that the guy they hire was their first choice, even if he wasn't.

If the Browns have indeed moved on, it means that Kelly will have less leverage when trying to close a deal with the Eagles. Unless some other team decides to jump into the fray.

I think if I were the Browns I get a offensive minded HC to help with Weeded, like Whisenhunt or McCoy.
