Shurmur and Rivera worked together with the Eagles for five years.

Chris Tabor used to be Dave Toub's assistant in Chicago. Rivera looked at him last year but we wound up with Murphy instead and he wound up in Cleveland.

Most of the Browns current assistants were somewhere else prior to joining Shurmur's staff in 2011.

People act like these guys never coached anywhere but Cleveland :rolleyes:

But there's ALWAYS a browns connection. I think that's the point.

If you have family in the Browns organization from the water-boy to the chain men that work at the games, BANNED

I know that's the perception, but it's not reality.

With Chudzinski gone, we actually have no one left on staff with ties to the Browns.

And honestly, Chudzinski was the only one who had spent more than a single year there. Fred Graves spent a single season there some years back, and John Settle was part of the old Browns that became the Ravens.

Now our consultant, Ernie Accorsi? He had some time in with the Browns, but he did his best work with the Giants.

So truthfully, this Browns connection thing is overblown.

Then we'd have to have dumped Ernie Accorsi.

He spent about 8 years in Cleveland.

Just because you have worked with someone previously doesn't mean they are worth a sh*t at their job.

Perhaps this is why Rivera fired half of his staff that he hired? Sigh.. I'm just hoping for the best.

He'd be the only one, barring any other hires. And again, he's an old Rivera colleague.

They actually had some decent people on staff, including our old LB coach from the Capers days, Billy Davis.

Honestly, I'm way more bugged by Shurmur being a WCO coach than I am his time with the Browns.

We're including history too. Davidson, Chud, Shurmur. We need to stop hiring Cleveland coaches to be the ones calling our offense.

JR said he wanted to emulate the steelers... maybe hes confused since they're so close in proximity...

I'm not. I'm only looking at Rivera. But technically even that's just a single example.
