I've only heard Mooch from fans.. no clue on his intentions and how far things got last year with that
But speaking on Sirius NFL radio Monday, Schottenheimer said he was intrigued about serving in a Bill Parcells-type role with Bill Cowher if he decided to return to coaching.

Schotts and Cowher in Cleveland?*|*F Juice.com

And I'm sure I've seen Cowher say he'd be interested in that too

This might be intreging if our season continues down the current path. A hard nosed GM and a hard chinned...I mean nosed HC might straighten out the players looking for the free ride and ge them performing.

I found this under Cowher's Wiki:

Cowher began his coaching career in 1985 at age 28 under Marty Schottenheimer with the Cleveland Browns. He was the Browns' special teams coach in 198586 and secondary coach in 198788 before following Schottenheimer to the Kansas City Chiefs in 1989 as defensive coordinator.

Assuming we bring Marty in as GM and Cowher in as HC, could we steal or get Marty's son Brian from the Jets to be OC? Unless we give him some fansy name like Asst. HC could we even bring him on board unless his contract is up and if someone knows when that would be?

Then who do we bring in as DC?

Cowher didn't just coach for Marty. He played for him as a linebacker when Marty was the defensive coordinator in Cleveland in the early 80s.

Brian would have to be assistant head coach

That's very interesting. Might just work!! Sound great IMO. We definitely don't have problems dishing out money for coaching staffs.

That is the key, getting a great GM. Then have Snyder take a half step back in his current role player/roster management.
The dynamic duo of Snyder/Cerratto have proven over time they do not have the ability to keep this team stocked with quality/young players. I also think their selection of this coaching staff was not good.
It is time for a new young/up and coming GM. First Priority.

Re: Smoke Signals: The Mike Holmgren rumors get louder

Mike Shanahan makes way too much sense as the next HC. Vinny and him go way back to SF. Besides i doubt any of the other coaches out there would want to work with Vinny and Snyder wont fire him.

Might not be too bad of an idea either. When he was in denver they ran the crap out of the ball and ran it well. Always a good OL. Which is what you need in the NFCE. I think its going to happen if we don't get to the playoffs this year.

Sounds like a great plan if Zorn does not work out.

For DC, how about Greg Manusky?. I'm not convinced that Blache is a failure, he did rally the team to some tough second-halfs this year and we're only giving up about ONE offensive TD per game.

What do you mean? Vinny did a great job with the 49ers! Now he is doing the same for the Redskins! Campbell has to go!

Re: Smoke Signals: The Mike Holmgren rumors get louder

I think Holmgren is a great choice to get the skins back on track. Whether he takes them to the SuperBowl is questionable. I would just like to see a consistent team that is building toward something. Just reaching the playoffs a couple of years in a row is good enough for me.

Re: Smoke Signals: The Mike Holmgren rumors get louder

Holmgren was on Mike & Mike yesterday morning and mentioned that he was enjoying his 1st year off, but wanted to come back and coach next year. So, if Zorn gets canned he would be the perfect fit to take over, that is if he wants to come here.

I actually think Blache is doing a better job this year than last year. Last year, he was an unmitigated disaster. This year, his original gameplans have been completely hit or miss, but he's done a good job with halftime adjustments in all games...and that represents a vast improvement over last year.

Unmitigated disaster with the 4th-ranked Defense in the NFL?
