Moving Forward in Berea: Mike Holmgren, legacies and dirty water

Mike Holmgren

In a lot of ways, I’m happy that Mike Holmgren’s services are no longer needed in Cleveland. Given the team’s record over the last three years, I welcome the opportunity to have someone else lead this team. Still, I’m a bit taken aback by some of the outbursts on Twitter and on local talk radio

“Cleveland ’95: A Football Life” will be mandatory viewing for me

Belichick and Modell

I’ve read countless tweets from Browns fans saying they won’t watch this documentary about the 1995 Cleveland Browns. Tony Grossi wrote about it and likened it to reliving a family member’s funeral.

Scratch Pioli Off The List

From the moment the Browns hired Eric Mangini to be the new head coach without first hiring a GM, we knew it virtually meant that still getting Scott Pioli to come to Cleveland was a long shot at best. But still, none the less, some of us held out hope that Pioli would swallow his

Randy Lerner Expands His GM List

I find it a bit odd that our fearless owner could not sleep a wink until he had a head coach in place, but appears willing to wait until after the Super Bowl to fill the role of general manager.  Such may be the case if Baltimore wins this weekend, and that could be a

Hey, You! Want to be our General Manager?

Because I don’t really know if anyone else does.

Kansas City Chiefs Also Eyeing Pioli

ESPN has been all over the merry-go-round of NFL head coaches and general managers over the past 48 hours.  Not long after the Browns were given the “nah, I’m good” by Bill Cowher, Lerner Inc. turned in the direction of Scott Pioli.  Fans of the Browns have mixed feelings about another New England guy, but
