#Browns Haslam: "We're not going to get into specific names. We think this is a very attractive job...Head coach will have final say/roster'


Sounds like Kelly or Gruden for the Browns then.

Pardon my ignorance, but what is attractive about coaching the Browns? Weeden/Richardson?

Meh.

They have a pretty legit defense. The offense is a mess IMO. Weeden was a bad pick and overdrafted as well. Richardson apparently played most of the season with 2 or 3 broken ribs, so I'll give him a pass for underwhelming this season.

The Browns are such a pathetic and desperate franchise. They're averaging a coach every two seasons. Sound familiar?

Familiar yes.

In the last 3 years the Browns have 14 NFL victories.
In the last 3 years the Panthers have 15 NFL victories.

Holy crap managemment at BofA sucks.
