LOL...because some things don't change. I take a year plus hiatus from here, come back, and he's still one of the biggest trolls on here.

A lot of people seem to think Haley's the head coach in waiting....although I heard a wild rumor yesterday that, assuming Hue continues to suck, and the Steelers do their recent "quick exit" from the playoffs, that it could be Tomlin.
Tomlin a coach in waiting in Cleveland? No way.

Haley has a long history of not really getting along with people.

The best case scenario that Browns leadership sees going forward is that the offense starts to really flourish under Haley and he ultimately becomes the HC.

Book it.

The only reason why he isn't already the HC right now is they are giving him the time to work DIRECTLY with the offense and QB's and the ownership knows it wont look good for awhile so they aer sort of doing him a favor.

When the time comes ownership will issue an Order 66 and gut the staff with Haley becoming the head coach.

I don't understand all the complaints that I'm reading. They are in a new offense with a new QB and OL, had to play their first real game together in miserable conditions, they were competitive against one of the elite teams in the league, and best of all, THEY DIDN'T LOSE! That's the best news the Browns have given me in years! For the first time in a very long time I'm excited for Sundays!!

I get the strong feeling Hue has been told to leave Haley alone (by Dee of course).

True and hear the sports pundits were all talking about it.

One thing that comes to mind when I hear something a RB who gets stuffed often ....

Barry Sanders, who many consider one of, if not the best ever, has the record for the most times tackled for loss (over 300 carries for nearly 1000 yards) and Peterson is nearing 300 caries for over 600 yards.


Sanders was tackled for loss more than 2 times a game...

68 yards is a great play.

Barkley was drafted BECAUSE he makes those kinds of plays. It's not like that was a fluke

Jim Brown was never tackled for a loss. Not once.

True story.

Trolling about one of football's all-time great players is unbecoming, especially considering when Jim Brown played the rules were not at all geared toward player safety and the passing game was not quite as balanced as it later became...hence all D's were geared to stop Brown by any means necessary. Most failed.

My apologies for disrespecting the woman beater who played against a bunch of guys who were playing football as a 2nd job. It won't happen again.

Someone once said Otto Graham was a solid QB.

Wow, what a life Josh Gordon has pi$$ed away. At least Justin Blackman had the decency to just disappear and not string it out for years.

If he's not about to be slapped with another suspension, releasing him makes absolutely no sense

Do think he asked if they knew what time the Pats had practice on Tuesday as he left the building?

Some highlights from the Cleveland.com article-

When Gordon did show up at the Browns facility on Saturday "a little tardy,'' according to one of the sources, he complained of a pulled hamstring, but he was fine in practice on Friday, a league source told cleveland.com.

Team doctors examined him, and in addition to the tweaked hamstring, there was concern that perhaps he was struggling again with his sobriety or on the verge of relapsing, sources said.

"This afternoon we informed Josh Gordon and his representatives that we are going to release him on Monday,'' Browns GM John Dorsey said in a statement. "For the past six years, the Browns have fully supported and invested in Josh, both personally and professionally and wanted the best for him, but unfortunately we've reached a point where we feel it's best to part ways and move forward. We wish Josh well."

Not really. Just surprised it took this long to cut bait. The only downside is that the Browns may have kept him past the point where he might have had any trade value whatsoever. We'll see if they can get something for him before Monday.

As best I can tell, the last time the Browns won a game that Gordon played in was November 23, 2014 - a 26-24 win against the Falcons. Granted, Gordon has only played in 10 games since then, but that's the main part of the problem. Can't win with guys who can't be on the field no matter the reason.
