    So now, the coach will get fired at the end of the year because the GM and CEO were not involved in his hiring process. lmfao

    Not true, the GM was the assistant Gm, and he was the guy who wanted Pettine.

    @AdamSchefter: For those who lost track... RT @SprowESPN: Browns have now had 3 different head coaches and 3 different GMs in the last 407 days. Decent.

    While the shock waves of the Browns’ latest organizational shift continue to be felt, it’s worth noting immediately that the next set might not necessarily be far away — such that they ever are.

    According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, new Browns General Manager Ray Farmer wasn’t involved in the interviews that resulted in the hiring of new coach Mike Pettine.

    In the Browns statement announcing the ouster of CEO Joe Banner and G.M. Mike Lombardi, owner Jimmy Haslam said of Farmer: “He embraces his partnership with Mike Pettine, which is critical in helping build the right team.”

    Of course, embracing someone you’re not personally invested in changes the working dynamic considerably.

    The easy to reach perception of the mess that is Cleveland is that Banner and Lombardi failed to deliver the guys they thought they could get. From Chip Kelly playing them last offseason, to this year’s inability to land Josh McDaniels (or even get Adam Gase to interview), it’s obvious Banner and Lombardi’s inability to close was a factor in their unemployment.

    Now we’ll have to wait and see how warmly Farmer “embraces” Pettine, or whether he’s just keep his hands close enough to his back to shove him out the door in a season or so.

    Though it is Ian Rapoport, so who knows lol

    The Browns need to leave Cleveland. The city is cursed.

    Browns are headed for that first pick in the 2015 draft for sure. They've got the inside track.
    How are you going to let Norv go (Top 8 offensive coordinator in the league) and Horton (top 10 defensive coordinator in the league) and tell your fans your better off??? Hahahaha. Well, at least we have two confirmed wins in our pocket again in this division. Just need 8 more wins to make the playoffs.

    In a back-handed sort of way that is true yet so sad. In a way it makes it more frustrating that we haven't been able to put up more than another 6 wins for a couple of years.
