Around the Blogosphere: Part II

Chris Mortensen reported the Browns are interested in Marty Schottenheimer -to replace a coach they haven't fired yet - just before kick-off yesterday. Pro Football Talk had this response from Shottenheimer on its website today:

While appearing with Adam Schein of Sirius NFL Radio, a caller asked Schottenheimer about the situation. Said Schottenheimer in response, ”I don’t ever say ‘never’ if I don’t have to but I don’t see it as being likely. . . . I really don’t. "

As a Browns fan, I'm glad Marty didn't say 'never', because I would be happy to see him get his Joe Gibbs on in Cleveland next seson. Its a safe bet Chargers fan wishes he 'never' left San Diego. To that point, The Big Lead had this comment on its site today with respect to Schottenheimer:

"After Marty Schottenheimer finished 14-2 in 2007, coming up short at home against the Pats in the playoffs, his team was still viewed as a lock to be a force in the AFC for years to come. He was instead fired in favor of Norv Turner. Read that sentence again "

Whether its Marty coming back, Cowher, or Paul Brown himself, we at Shaver Sports would like to continue to reiterate that our only hope is that the Browns break form, and hire a coach with experience this time.

...lastly, we would like to send a shout out to our friends over at Deadspin for linking our Kosar post on Saturday - much appreciated.
