After Pat Shurmur's firing, I let my mind wander about who could be the next head coach. Here's what I came up with.
I called for Pat Shurmur's firing all last season, and one year later, it happened. On Monday the Cleveland Browns let go of Head Coach Pat Shurmer, along with General Manager Tom Heckert. To be honest, I do feel bad for Shurmer. He was put in a tough spot. He came in with no time to work with his team due to the lockout and because, well, it is the Cleveland Browns we're talking about; no coach comes in without something going terribly wrong. Still, it didn't seem like Shurmer was a good fit for the team and the city. And his putrid play-calling didn't help him much. Let's be real here: If you have eight yards for a first down, don't throw a two-yard crossing route! Alas, Browns fans are looking to the future, yet again, to see who will …
