The best thing about this is that Vick will likely stay in Philly and not come to Cleveland now, thankfully.
Possible reasons for the 20th flip flop:
Saw what Kaep did Saturday and goes hey my O' can work in this league.
Found out about sanctions.
The Eagles came back after their 20th HC interview and gave him an offer Phil Knight wouldn't match.
Wanted to follow Monte Kiffin to the NFL to continue to tear up his defense (now divisional foes)
Who the F' knows with this guy anymore and for me who cares. Have fun losing Vick the first game when you think he can run the spread option and not get injured with his 34 year old already fragile body. Glad he isn't in the AFC though and will watch as a football fan to see how this goes for the Eagles.
As you remember, I said earlier that this had a Pete Carroll-esque feel to it. I'm glad we didn't get him and Haslem and the Browns shouldn't be crucified for this, I am just afraid it's going to happen. I agree with pretty much all you said too.
My only concern with this whole process and hiring Chud is that we didn't wait to interview McCoy, Roman and any other candidates still in the playoffs. It doesn't appear Chud was on anyone else's radar and it comes off that we settled for him. Chud may end up being great and I sure hope he is, but it seems that at the stage we were at, we could have been a little more patient and done more diligence.
Lovie Smith is still out there. Any one hear who he favors for DC? Any chance CLE? I don't think he is going to JAX, and I would think Zona would have made a move for him by now if they wanted him. Do you think we wait to see what happens with Horton? I can't see him wanting to stick around if he gets passed up for the Zona job.
To answer my own question

Lovie Smith unlikely to seek coordinator role, eyes 2014 return
I am still pulling for Tucker. I have my hesitations with Pagano as the Browns would be taking all of the fired SD coaches.Cards want to keep Ray Horton and his defensive staff on board in AZ, and it sounds like that might be effecting how candidates see the job.
Raheem Morris to interview for Browns opening DC position on Friday per PFW.
Raheem Morris? Hmmmmm... I don't know. Tough to argue that this would be a significant upgrade over Dick Jauron. The only reason I would welcome this hiring is because if my memory serves me correctly he ran a 4-3 system in Tampa.
