By the way, I saw where Mike Lombardi predicted Ron Rivera would be fired on Monday. Anyone else see that? :unsure:

As in this coming Monday?

Just reviving an oft-quoted line from earlier in the offseason :lol:

Lombardi was dead certain of it but dead wrong. People here beat that drum to death and it never happened.

Speaking of Lombardi, Greg Bedard speculates he may call the Patriots to trade for Ryan Mallett.

talking about lombardi being "sure" that rivera was going to be fired made me think of this that i just saw tweeted a little while ago...

Lombardi was "convinced" in April '11 Mallett would go top-20. RT @GregABedard Lombardi in CLE puts Ryan Mallett trade back on front burner

having the browns trade for the overrated ryan mallett would be the great equalizer. just when you think they might be moving away from the traditional sucky cleveland brown way....they up and trade for mallett. that would just be hilarious.

That, or someone else will have that title.

I suspect they'll still hire a GM. Power structure will be interesting, especially with Chudzinski involved.

Too many cooks...

Going from having Cam Newton as your QB to having Ryan Mallett would be a hellacious adjustment.

Mallett looked so slow pre-draft that I doubted he could avoid my pass rush.

Chud would be going from having a race horse at QB to a statue. Actually, it might force him to be a bit more balanced.

Didn't mean to step on your comment. I type slowly on my phone.

Insert "great minds" comment here.
