So we draft a QB #1, get a free agent veteran QB and a couple of other picks.  Hue still the coach.  Maybe an OC.  Maybe 4 wins max.  

With Hue as coach 0-16 again

Yep, that would be one hell of a dream season with Huey at the helm.

No, I do not.

The only reason why Jimmy was a FA is because Brady shows no signs of slowing down. Jimmy was tired of waiting even though NE had every intention on having him be the heir apparent. The Browns are win less even though they have a decent team, but you still kept that 1st rounder so youre winners in that regard, right?

Well, no, because you still have to go out and select a QB in this draft.

Well, yes... because we have two first-rounders and no QB instead of one 1st and no QB... unless your plan was to tag Jimmy after a few games. No better way to cement a relationship... just ask WSH.

As for the Pats... you have to know they have their next QB is right around the corner. Might even use their #1 on a QB for a change.

THE LATEST

Marvin Lewis, whose contract is up in Cincinnati, plans on taking his time before making a decision on his future. The Bengals are not expected to make an announcement on Monday.

The Bears have fired John Fox.

Jim Caldwell has been fired by the Lions; Detroit requests interview with Texans defensive coordinator Mike Vrabel.

Broncos GM John Elway is on the fence about Vance Joseph, but is now leaning toward keeping Joseph for a second season.

After a season-ending loss to the Chargers, Jack Del Rio said he has been fired by Oakland. All eyes now turn to Jon Gruden.

Chuck Pagano has been fired by the Colts.

One old name mentioned in the article... Flipper. He's expected to get a look for the CHI HC job.

With one former #Browns  coach - Pat Shurmur - getting an interview with the #Lions, it reminds me of another: Mike Pettine spent the year consulting for the #Seahawks  & learning a new system. He will be a top DC candidate.

The coaching management in the NFL is so unbelievably stupid. The college football and NFL styles should change. It makes sense for a guy in the NFL to take 4 years to win a championship because there is so much parity. In college, the standard is to give a guy 4 years minimum even though the big schools can make a team in 2 years or less (see Meyer, Smart, Saban, Herman at Houston relative to their competition, etc.).

 

Really hope the needle moves away from this. Some of the firings that went down today were idiotic.

Perhaps their strength and conditioning guy in Green Bay needs to be fired.

The Packers every year seem to have a TON of injuries.

Good for Pett, he was thrown under the bus by those above him. He didn’t help himself with O’Neil business but he deserved better than he got.

I completely agree with Terry Pluto about this whole mess. Stosh and Hue reported to the Haslam's independent of each other. Consensus not!

 Now it's Dorsey and Hue reporting to the Haslam's independent of each other. I hate it and it's pretty much doomed to fail from the start. The GM needs to be free to make his own decisions in order to put a football team with real talent together. But, what the heck, I'd do the same as Dorsey for 5 mil a year. 

 We're screwed again.

That structure did not preclude the consensus process, so long as the man a the top bought in.

 

To which Pluto column do you refer? Link?

It was on Cleveland.com 

There's a few columns by him there. It was his Friday article...but that's a guess. This phone isn't quite smart enough to download the link. Kinda special. It's one of Pluto's  more recent columns though.

The Bengals have signed Marvin Lewis to a new, two-year contract.

Pete Carroll has said he will not retire.

Broncos fire multiple assistant coaches, but offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave will return for 2018.

Bruce Arians has told his staff he is retiring

Arians has since held a tearful presser to confirm he is retiring.

 

Lewis' new contract is the big surprise... and the death of our last hope.

lol... no, but I would take him over Hue.

The hope that was posted around here by a few was that Lewis would lave Cinci and then they'd come after Hue by making a trade offer.

Looks like now Brown is willing to wait for us to fire Hue after 2018... ;)

Tell us what? Haslam is an impatient meddlesome owner who doesn't know how to construct an NFL Front Office? Hires\fires the wrong guys? I'm not going to get into the relative merits of canning Sashi and keeping Hue.

And I said any replacement hires would blow and therefore firing guys (what you wanted to do) wouldn’t work. Check and check for me so far.
