Before proceeding, I would emphasize what follows is a rumor, and has not been confirmed. But it comes from the Boston Globe and its excellent NFL writer Greg Bedard. He was one of the first guys who reported that Joe Banner would hire Mike Lombardi as the teams new GM, after Banner let Tom Heckert go. Bedard attributed that report to two independent sources he calls influential. Today Bedard repeated the rumor, and fueled another one, that Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels would be the coach provided Nick Saban and Chip Kelly do the expected and turn down the Browns. McDaniels is an Ohio guy with head coaching experience, albeit failed experience. He started a two-year career in Denver with four wins in a row, then finished 4-8 that season and 3-9 the next before he was fired. Those are numbers that should make McDaniels jealous of Pat Shurmur. McDaniels didnt even finish his second season. Why McDaniels is a step up from a guy who has two years into the team is beyond...

  • anything less then turn over wouldnt surprise me! Since day one it has been nothing but! each & every decision made has been a disapointment! being a life long Browns fan for over 40 years gets you used to the same shtick! The way Truck Stop Jimmy presented himself left me with an impresion that great things would be instore for us suffering fans but what we all need to realize is the only thing we are instore for is yet another rebuild, yes we have some players but they as well as us will be learning & watching another system being installed & more growing pains! it is frustrating but what would you expect they guy laid out 1 billion not million dollars for a team! for the 14 time wait till next year!
