Just heard on ESPN's NFL Live show from Chris Mortensen and Adam Schefter that the Redskins and Browns are extremely interested in James Franklin as their next head coach. Evidently Franklin interviewed for the Texans job and apparently blew them away. When I first
heard read this as a possiblity from Randy Juan in the Franklin to PSU post I must admit a little bit of a chuckle escaped my body, but the more I have thought about it the more I think of it as a real possibility. Danny Boy hiring a guy that many think his Terps left get away? Not too much of a stretch there, I think. Although he whiffed by hiring a college coach once before, I think the reason this one may be a possiblity is that this one has some NFL coaching experience. Really, I would like to see Franklin try the NFL and for the 'Skins to give him a shot. It would be a lot better to see him succeed in Washington than it would in Happy Valley.
