Perpetually teaching everyone how NOT to build a winning franchise.

Perusing PFT and saw the headline about Haslam being impatient.  Thought "wonder what that's about" but didn't read.

 

Scrolled down a little and saw something about Ray Farmer as GM, and went "huh"?

 

Kept scrolling till I saw the story about Lombardi and Banner being fired and said "you've gotta be freakin' kidding me" :blink:

 

Free agency is a month away, a month (a short month at that since it's February).  Heck, the Scouting Combine starts in less than two weeks.

 

Just hired a new coach.  Heck, I don't even know if they've filled out the whole coaching staff yet.

 

Good grief, what an utter mess.

Congrats, to Ray Farmer though. My high school teammate and long time friend.  We won baseball state championships in Little League, American American Legion, high school (Glenn High School,1992) and played football together from the time we were 12 through high school.  Great guy, smart as hell and seems to be well respected as a talent evaluator in the NFL.  

 

Now don't let the dumpster fire that is the Browns consume you too! 

 

This pic is of me and Ray on the field prior to the Chiefs v. Panthers game back in 2008 when he was Director Pro Personnel for the Chiefs (We won 34-0)

No matter how bad your team has it, someone always has it worse (unless your a Browns fan). 

 

Saw a t-shirt once that summed it all up: 

 

"Cleveland Browns... Rebuilding since 1963". 

 

My manager is a Browns fan.  The contact icon I use for him on my phone is a Browns fan holding a sign that says that.

 

I took the day off today to get some stuff done.  Part of me wishes I hadn't :lol:

Can you imagine the drama queens in our fanbase if they had to put up with this level of futility.

i know browns fans are probably happy because they hated banner and lombardi but the timing is so bad it's laughable.

Best story is about the fan who wanted Browns players to be his pallbearers so they "could let me down one more time".

The problem with the Browns franchise is they are too impatient. Whether Chud was the right fit or not, they fired him after one season. That is not giving anyone a chance. I believe they have some bright spots on their roster but management needs to to stick with one coach, gm, etc for a few years and see if they can build a winner. Rome wasn't built in a day.

I guess the only good news is that Farmer was already the assistant GM, so it's not like they're bringing in a total outsider... but the timing is still terrible.

Why would you hire a coach then fire your GM weeks later? LOL Poor Browns fans

Yep.  The timing is absolutely awful.

 

Now Ray Farmer (who, by all accounts is a good football guy) gets to be the one who calls free agents to say "Hey man, how'd you like to sign a contract with an organization that fired it's head coach and GM after just one year?  Oh, and also dumped their team president of 18 months on the same day?"

Quote from Florio...
 

Over the last 18 months, Haslam has made four key hires in his two primary businesses.  And he has fired all four of them.  Does that say more about the men who were hired, or about the man who hired them?

Honestly who would want to go there?? They didn't give their coach a chance to turn the team around now they don't give the front office a chance either?
