the 2-7 Browns is what will happen after the season is over.
In the NFL, the key to a successful team is having the right coach and quarterback. As Joe Banner told Mary Kay Kabot in the Cleveland Plain Dealer:

The last seven games of the Browns' season will determine if Pat Shurmur is that head coach. In the same interview,

Says Deadspin’s Barry Petchetsky on Holmgren, the recent Cowboys rumor and Bob LaMonte’s black magic on behalf of clients Holmgren and Andy Reid:

Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden is putting together good games, but late in games, he is next-to-last in the NFL in QB ratings.
Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reported on Sunday that Mike Holmgren would be interested in taking over as the Cowboys head coach, should the job become available.
Holmgren reportedly likes their roster and the fact that he does have ties to owner Jerry Jones suggests that it’s at least a remote possibility.

The Browns travel to Dallas on Sunday after
what was hopefully a fruitful bye week. There are still two months left in the
season, and before the depressing NFL draft
discussion really cranks up as it does in Cleveland around
Thanksgiving most every year, what else is there for Browns fans to ponder over
the final seven games?
Outgoing Browns President Mike Holmgren still hasn't decided if
he wants to coach again.
While there have been whispers over the weekend relating to Trent Richardson, I cannot confirm with anyone inside the facility so I will not speculate or comment at this point.
With that said, its been reported that Richardson is on the field for practice this morning, but he is not practicing with the 1st team offense. This is obviously a rare occurrence as there is no doubt that...
BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- During the Browns' much-needed bye last week, wide receiver Greg Little spent two hours having lunch in Miami with former NBA star Alonzo Mourning.
The meal was fine.
The message was far more satisfying.
