    OT - Browns to fire Pat Shurmur after tomorrow's game.

    He has ties to Harbaugh and actually, he's not a terrible offensive coordinator. He may be on the radar.

    He actually did a pretty good job there and won some tough games (Pitt, SD) Someone should give him a shot and Dick Jauron too

    I don't blame the new owner for wanting his guys but at some point you have to give it time. IMO, Heckert should be fired for the horrible draft last year when frankly they could've had RG III.

    Wonder if they bring in Mike Lombardi as per speculation?

    Nick Saban apparently is on their short list as well.

    I've seen the Saban rumors but why would he leave Bama for Believeland? It's a damn tough job considering the division.

    I don't see Saban leaving Alabama. He's practically god down there.

    yeah, Saban wasn't fired from the Dolphins, he left there FOR the Alabama job. Why would he hop back into the NFL?

    I think it's certainly possible Saban comes back to the NFL but I can't believe it will be in Cleveland. I have no idea who it will end up being but I seriously doubt it's a big name former coach or really hot coordinator. That's an awful job with a pretty bare talent cupboard and a brutal division. I see a situation like Washington had years ago where they ended up with Jim Zorn, until they commit to a coach for more than two years and let them implement their system with their players, good luck getting anyone of note in there to coach your team.

    Funny thing is...and others have kinda said it, I think Shurmur can win. I think Mangini would have eventually built a solid team there. You can't succeed with the instability they have had...

    It seems like the comments from Browns fans on this are mostly pondering WHY they'd clear Shurmur out after posting the best season in YEARS. The GM seems to be universally disliked there, but they seem to want Shurmur to stay.

    We'll see what Banner and Haslam do, but they seemed to be a better pair for the team, up to this move.

    Doubt Saban leaves Alabama. Plus he is 61, doubt he wants to come back to the NFL and deal with the attitudes money creates. Bet you see Gruden's name pop up both Grudens, he was a big Browns fan as kid.
    Wouldn't be surprised to see Zimmer come up too. He is due.

    Because Johnny Football is gonna whoop up on his defenses for at least 2 more years and it'll make him (by extension) look bad.

    Got $50 for the first person who wants to bet Saban leaves Bama for Cleveland.

    Saban ain't leaving Bama. He's making five million a year, T-Town loves him, and most importantly his wife says that's where they're staying.

    Probably because it's not done for football reasons, it's simply because Haslam wants his own guys running it. I'm certainly not complaining if the Browns are set back another year or two again.

    Mike Zimmer as next head coach?

    All his career he's taken fairly average units and improved them

    I remember him on Hard Knocks with theCowboys

    Bengals are doing very well right now. Credit due

    He interviewed for the Bucs and Dolphins jobs so he wants to step up somewhere.
    Things are looking up in Cleveland, sounds strange to say that but they had some young talent on that roster
