    Names being mentioned. Matt Rhule from Baylor. OU coach Lincoln Riley and of course Urban Meyer. Now IF one of those guys is hired do they become a Jimmy Johnson and Pete Carroll college to pro success story? Or do they find out they are better off in CFB like Saban and Spurrier who failed in the NFL. Discuss..

    I think it depends on how much they will actually be allowed to make decisions.

    Exactly. Jerry needs to finally wake up. Hire a top shelf GM. Hire a great coach. Then sit back and let them do their jobs. He isn't getting any younger. You haven't won shit since Jimmy and Jimmy's players left. Time to relinquish some control.

    They should stick with Jason Garrett. All this coaching carousel garbage needs to stop.

    He's a smart man. I'm sure he recognizes all of that privately. But I don't think he can help himself. So, better to hire another loyal lapdog if you're just going to meddle anyway.

    If they hire a top-shelf GM and coach, it will be a total waste unless they strap Jerry to a gurney like Hannibal Lecter for the next 4-5 years.

    Dan Orlovsky said it best. "Jerry likes power and control more than he likes winning."

    I would pay Lincoln Riley $15m a year, he would works wonders with that talent on offense.

    I don't think any coach is dying to work for Jerrah, and hitch their wagon to Dak. Wil they get a big name? Probably, money talks, but that job isn't as attractive as many make it out to be.

    I HATE the Cowgirls. But with the way theyve built that team, they need a coach that will run the ball and play defense.

    That's not Lincoln Riley. Maybe Urban? Hell I'd hire Ron Rivera and give him a go before I think some great RECRUITING college coach is going to be magic in the Nfl.

    And I’m fairly certain that guy is the worst NFL analyst in the history of mankind, but he is so right here.

    Jerry is Al Davis 2.0. As for a coach, I’d like to see Lincoln Riley leave OU.

    I don't really find anything wrong with that. Irritating if you're a fan, but if I was that rich, I'd want to do the same thing in MLB.

    I'm actually much more curious to see if the Browns can actually hire a competent coach and whether a competent coach could turn that dumpster fire around. They have a lot of talent on offense (more than the Cowboys, minus o-line), could a good coach actually manage the admittedly horrible personalities? Not a Browns fan, just curious.

    I hope Jerry never wins another title.

    Honestly. I think that would be a very solid choice. I saw his name mentioned above and agree with both. Not a sexy splash hire but a major upgrade from what they have right now.

    The man can coach and the cowboys are probably the best available (at least will) NFL coaching job.

    Josh McDaniels would be a good hire, get Rivera to be DC. I just don’t think many people want to work for Jerry but I could be wrong

    Not doubting his coaching ability. He’s a guy that refused to leave Boise for years because he loved staying out of the spotlight. Plus, I believe he just stepped down because he was getting overwhelmed at UW.

    Thats my point. No recruiting and Jerry will handle the roster. Petersen just has to coach a pretty good roster and he can hide in Jerry's shadow.

    I think Switzer might be the more pertinent analogy here. He won titles at both OU and the Cowboys. Try to capture that lightning again.

    Switzer won with Jimmy's team and players. He should have won another SB with that team of studs that Jimmy assembled.

    Question: Will Petersen be longer remembered for what he did at Boise State or at Washington?

    O line pretty important. Zeke better then any RB on Cleveland’s roster. Witten better then any Browns TE. Dak or Baker? Probably go with Dak. Both suck as far as NFL elite QBs go. WRs toss up

    I could see them going after a bunch of the guys who "retired"...namely Urban Meyer, Bob Stoops, Bill Cowher, and Tony Dungy (listed youngest to oldest).

    None of those coaches fit the Sean McVeigh model, so Jones might look to go younger, but you've got to assume Jones wants this to be his last major hire and wants someone proven. Actually, that's what a rational elder statesman would do, so he'll probably go rogue and hire someone like the Broncos did last year.

    as long as Jerry is there, I don't expect them to be overly competitive. his ego is too over the top still to allow someone he don't know that well to run his game for him. he was teammates at Arkansas with Barry & Jimmy, that's just how he is wired, old school control freak, IMO.
