Again... if he runs a stubbornly college-oriented spread, I think Cleveland is doomed. But I'm intrigued by Kelly because I'm very curious to see what scheme he runs, and very possibly it's something nobody was expecting.
Bottom line is that they're essentially banking that:
1) hiring a college coach that runs a VERY unconventional offense is going to work even though pretty much every previous attempt has failed and
2) he can overcome #1 in Cleveland, where NOBODY has had much success.
I don't like the odds.
