NFL News: Ken Whisenhunt back in Berea to meet with Browns

Adding his name to the list of those who have met with the Cleveland Browns more than once is former Arizona Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt.

The Browns met with Whisenhunt one week ago while they were out in Arizona for Operation: Ducktales1.  

Whisenhunt, who was fired Monday by the Cardinals, also has interviewed with the Buffalo Bills. He was one of the longest-tenured head coaches in the NFL prior to his firing, leading the Cardinals to their first Super Bowl appearance in franchise history during the 2008 season. He went 1-11 over his final 12 games with the Cards in 2012.

    well, we wait for Garry to crack open the 2nd bottle of scotch for the day.

    Hey!

    no way. Wait … got it! Randy is O’Brien’s nephew fresh from the hotel, spilling things on everyone. Of course I just leaked into Season 3 so not sure that’s fair. Maybe if the premise is that Ken = Old News we must set our feet firmly before The War and work with the ingredients already in the pantry.

  • Harv 21

    pathetic, isn’t it. (sigh)

    I thought “Operation: Ducktales”, with the accompanying footnote, was great. I literally (not figuratively) laughed out loud, and I’m gonna be humming that damn song for the rest of the day…

    But I’m a little weird, so…take it for what it’s worth..

  • MrCleaveland

    Yeah, but on you it looks good.

  • Jaker

    If he’s the right guy according to Haslam & co., then he’s my favorite. Hopefully he doesn’t change the D and keeps Slick Dick. On offense, I feel like we definitely have the right pieces for him. Plus, Weeden reminds me of Kurt Warner I some ways. Limited mobility, came into league much older, pocket passer. This could work.

  • dwhit110

    If limited mobility and coming into the league much older can equate to a (probable) hall-of-famer, I can totally bring those skills to the combine this year.

  • mgbode

    have you ever bagged groceries?

  • dwhit110

    YES actually!

  • Jaker

    All I’m saying is that if any coach can get the most out of Weeden, it might be Wiz. And not having to get a new QB would be awesome

  • Porckchop

    Yeah theres no way you can teach him new schtick

  • Porckchop

    Flighty Duck perhaps?

    I feel like you just talked me out of going home with a fat girl. (No offense, Chudzinski)

  • Kildawg

    Don’t think we have the beer-tinted glasses anymore. Buffalo might have gone hogging the first night, but I think the Browns have sobered up a bit to get something more than a two-year stand… something about learning from history?

  • Garry_Owen

    That’s what wingmen are for.

  • SDA

    I have to say I’m a little sad that I missed all this while it was happening. Darn Bowling night!

  • saggy

    TSR – that’s awesome!!

  • saggy

    Ken = New Coke

  • saggy

    that old dog (coughlin) can teach my Browns some tricks
