    Well said. I would guess that a lot of candidates would not be thrilled with the structure of 'everybody and their brother' reporting directly to Haslam. It's not a 'chain' of command. It winds up being a bunch of VP's pitted against one another...all in the owner's ear. (it's just another thing that we've seen fail before. that's not to say that it COULDN'T work....just not with Jimmuh as the point person) ...Oh, WSS, my band played last night. Us two guitar players both do some structured solos, and extemporaneous leads.

    Yup. It just seems that we're doomed to this hell......until the Halsams finally sell. But that won't happen because he's giving up his Pilot Flying Circus. The team is going to be 'it'. I'd be interested to know just what happened with Paton. Did he pull his name because all that time went by and Haslam didn't make an offer? - Did he tell Haslam at the 2nd interview that he needed a couple of days to think it over? And then came to his senses...err, I mean, decided to stay put? And meanwhile we've had a bunch of potential lame ducks working Senior Bowl Week. But there's no rush....because....they're going to get it 'right' this time. (pretend that was in pink)

    I haven't been able to watch baseball for years. Too slow, too boring. I'd rather watch golf. (believe it or not)

    ...and if it doesn't, why would we want anyone stupid enough to come and work for Jimmuh after being warned?

    Did George Paton go to Senior Bowl week at all? I wonder...

    HOW DO YOU KNOW IT'S NEW YEARS? THE BROWNS HAVE A NEW HEAD COACH! BA-DUM! Another year of newness. New HC, GM, DC, OC (or not), position coaches, new playbook, new, new, new, right down to the uniforms. Yup, new uni's too....BECAUSE THEY CAN'T GET ANYTHING AT ALL RIGHT......EVER! I mean, WHAT are the odds? That Haslam hired the right coach, the right GM and fixed the uniforms , ALL IN THE SAME OFFSEASON? .......I better have a Snickers bar and go to bed.

    How many guys did they interview for the GM job? Three? Certainly you don't have to interview all of 'em a second time do ya? I mean....did you forget to ask them something? You bring one of three in for a second interview....then...He's your guy! Right?! Or you're just pullin' his chain. If I was Paton, and I got sent back home without the job after a 2nd interview with Haslam, well, I wouldn't be accepting any more of his phone calls. ( I've already got a job and don't have to work for that ass-hat Haslam..........of course, I've been conditioned to be biased against Haslam)

    OBJ underwent surgery on core.

    I remember reading where Jaleen Strong, who had a good camp and preseason said that TC was over the top. They were in pads hitting a LOT. A REAL lot. And that it wore out player's bodies.

    Because Jimmuh TOLD us that. Years ago.

    In other words, you wind up doing what the dumbest shit of the bunch agrees to do. No, that's not how it was. If there was no consensus to be reached, then Sashi had final say. It was The Committee of Harvard Think Tankers and Hue. They couldn't agree on the brand of water to drink.

    Dutch's '19 Browns Questions

    I'm not on the list...but somewhere I had us for 9-7. ...all because we lost to teams that we had no business loosing to. Facilitated by not having Vernon to play DE (or RG, which is what we traded for him) or Garrett for the other DE. We had nobody to rush the passer in the latter part of the season. Virtually NOTHING went right. Guys that we were expecting big seasons from because of Odell & Jarvis taking coverages were Callaway (gone), Higgins (injured, then dog house), Njoku (injured, then dog house). Both starting corners gone for a long time.....and the D didn't get any better when they returned. What went right besides Nick Chubb and Landry? Oddly enough, game #1 told the story. It showed who would be playing in a championship game and who would be hiring a new coach.

    Anyone else sick of "analytics?"

    In our case, 'The Family' The more information you can gather, sort and apply = the more informed the decision. (predicated by tine restraints)
