That would be a very Browns move. Go 1-31, keep the coach. Win 6 games or so and show improvement, fire the coach and start over.

Heard of Tom Heckert's passing today in a radio story that mentioned the Browns were 14-34 under his leadership. At first I thought that was an awful W/L record. I then realized that qualified him to be the Tex Schramm of the new Browns.

Browns fourth-round WR Antonio Callaway was cited for marijuana possession on Sunday morning. This goes along with a failed test at the NFL Combine.

This just in- problem college players often turn into problem professional players. The fans can all excited about the potential and the thrill of that great gamble, but for every Tyreke Hill there are two Callaways and Gordons. I mean damn, how intellectually challenged do you have to be to test positive at the combine?

Oh, and I don't to hear a word from Jimmy, Dee or Hue about assembling a team with character.

I think the biggest takeaways from Hard Knocks was Hue getting a text from Josh Gordon passing along his new number, sharing his condolences and saying he'll seem him soon.

Jarvis Landry calling out all the receivers and basically saying they're soft for missing practice may be what the Browns need in terms of leadership. It's my opinion that it'd be hard to look towards the starting QB for leadership due to the position being a revolving door since the franchise started as Browns Part II. Will be interesting to see if Cleveland tries to make a trade for OBJ as he's now publicly lobbying for the move to happen and states OBJ has interest in being a Brown.

Tough for Hue to go through two deaths within a short amount of time. Can't imagine how difficult that had to be. Not to mention it was kinda broke to the coaches mid film study after someone stopped by his office to share their thoughts. Hue tells the rest of the coaches his Mom passed away earlier in the morning and then goes straight back to film study. It was like he told them his family member had a stomach ache. Think the emotion really showed later in the show when he couldn't hold it in any longer.

Haley and Hue are going to be entertaining.

Coleman isn't a football player. Bills got hosed.

I thought the super long bits of Hue breaking down were intrusive. I don't understand the mentality that stuff like that is good TV.

* In December of 2015, Callaway was accused of sexual assault and suspended, but was cleared in August of 2016 in a Title IX hearing. His accuser and her attorney boycotted the proceeding because it was adjudicated by a Florida booster. During the hearing, he admitted to being "so stoned I had no interest in having sex with anyone."

* In May of 2017, Callaway was cited for misdemeanor marijuana possession, and was in the car with a 40-year man, Kendrick Williams, who had been arrested more than a dozen times in Florida for drugs, guns, battery, auto theft and more.

* Last season, he was suspended by the school the whole year for using stolen credit cards to fund a bookstore account.

* In March, he had the diluted urine sample at the combine.

Yesterday, in addressing the media, old Hue said “This is surprising to me. It is.” LOL.

It's always been a key element of the show. It's not really to show highlights but to show the raw emotion. In the next few weeks we'll be introduced to a longshoreman player. We'll all fall in love with him and then be heartbroken when his dreams are ripped from under him in the final episode. Unfortunately for Hue his family's losses kinda showed that these guys are more than football. And I'd have to believe if the Browns went to the HBO producers and asked for some space due to the circumstances that wish would've been granted.

Ah, no. There's a way to capture emotion and "the human side" without lingering uncomfortably long on a guy breaking down in private over the loss of two family members.

Go through all the prior seasons and see how tragedy was covered. Don't recall the seasons, and may even be Showtime's college version, but in one they even went to the funeral. You're allowed to have your opinion but it'd be in the minority. Followed the # the entire show on twitter with automatic updates. You're comments are the first I've seen that are upset by the way things were covered. Many passed on their condolences, said it was sad to watch...etc.

I understand that it's been done before and on other shows. I don't understand why you keep bringing it up; it does not address my point.

There were plenty of people on Twitter talking about it as it happened and afterward, so I'm going to call BS there.

Maybe they were and not using the #HardKnocks and I stopped following after the show. I also don't follow any media that I know of from the Cleveland area so perhaps they viewed the show differently and responded with their feelings after the show. I didn't personally take any issue with it and I wouldn't have had an issue if they also chose not to show those scenes.

I guess if you're that upset about it then make sure to write a strongly worded letter to HBO and address your concerns.

Akron Beacon-Journal reports Callaway did not inform the team of the incident, which happened before the Coleman trade. Team learned of the incident through the media.

I just love him not telling the staff of his arrest and moving into a starting spot in the same day because they trade his competition.
