Will Mangini's "Process" fit in the U-HAUL?

For the past year the Browns and their fans have been pounded with Eric Mangini's "process". Early in the season as the losses piled up we were told that "this is a process and it's not going to happen overnight". When the Browns beat arch rival Pittsburgh on a frigid Thursday night we were told that "the process is coming together".

The "process" might be leaving on a U-HAUL soon.

He's not Santa Claus but Mike Holmgren is coming to town and he's making a list and you can bet your dawgbones that he will check it at least twice.

Browns owner Randy Lerner did what he said he was going to do and hired a "serious, credible leader" to finally bring the Cleveland Browns back to respectability. Call it a year too late or better late than never but Randy Lerner has used the resources around him to figure this thing out. You can't build a font office by first hiring a head coach and then letting said coach hand pick the GM.

Unless Eric Mangini can sell Mike Holmgren on his "process" there's going to be a new leadership and a new vision for the Cleveland Browns in 2010 and its got nothing to do with $1,200 water bottle fines or not naming a starting QB.

There are people out there trying to make a case that Holmgren should absolutely keep Eric Mangini. These are the same people that have been making excuses for Mangini all season so this comes as no surprise. Mangini made his bed in Cleveland and now he will have to sleep in it for two more weeks.

A legend like Mike Holmgren doesn't come out of retirement to become the President of the Cleveland Browns so he can move out of the way and let Eric Mangini's "process" continue to play out after one of the worst seasons in franchise history.

Call me crazy, but don't call me late for dinner.


  1. Here we go. WoW. Listen to yourself, your crazy.

    1. Mike Holmgren is not a "legend" especially when it comes to drafting, he has a terrible draft history. Therefor i don't consider him a credible leader, i consider him an inexperienced hire for the president position.

    2. $1200 water bottle fines? If i took a bottle of water and didn't pay for it, i'd probably spend the night in jail. I'd say he got off easy.

    3. Lucky for you i've been working on this list you speak of and should have it done before you can cry about Brady Quinn being out for the season.

  2. You need to go write for Frowns and I need to write for WFNY.

    How do you not consider Holmgren a credible leader? He's been a coach in the NFL since 1986 and has turned around 2 teams. But he's not good enough for us here in Cleveland with a resume like that.

    Who says he's going to be the one doing the drafting? He's the President not the GM or the head of the scouting dept.

    How can you argue against having a guy like Mike Holmgren in the front office when there was currently nobody in a position of authority between the head coach and owner?

  3. Of course he was a great coach but that doesn't mean he'll be a good president!

    I wanted somebody with experience so hopefully he hires a good GM.

    Bernie Kosar was a good QB but that doesn't mean he can coach!

  4. He's been in the NFL since 1985, how much more experience do you want? You would rather have a guy who was the President of a team for 3 years just because he has that particular experience? What Holmgren is going to do is make the logical decisions that Lerner couldn't make like not hiring the head coach before the GM and not rushing out to hire somebody that was just fired and no other team on earth was interested in interviewing. Common sense decisions like that will be made by Holmgren.
