I really, really disagree with that.
You've seen I'm pretty consistent on this. This is my #1 criteria for a head coach. Norv and Romeo don't discipline their players because they're afraid to not be somebody's friend. Gunther Cunningham and Rex Ryan are all empty words. Lots of guys don't have the people skills to lead or motivate. A lot of them are like that really smart guy in class that can ace every exam, but could never sell anything on the road because nobody buys what you're selling.
So to me, Chip Kelly has that in spades. Something many good X's and O's guys don't have. So the Browns get that. Again, the question will become if his power gets to his head and/or if his scheme adapts. But at the very least, think Cleveland will be a very well coached team that won't make many mistakes and will play really hard for Kelly.
