Did he really make all the personnel decisions? I thought Belichick did that. 

As I recall, the Browns steadily improved from 1992-1996, and had some pretty decent personnel in place when they moved to Baltimore, where they did very well the first five years.

However, he has been out of football for a while, and there's a reason nobody wanted to hire him the last five years or so.

7 wins under 11 if we go 3-4. 4 or 5 under if DJ is kept & we draft a CB in 1st.

I can't quite figure it out, but I know the correct equation features some factor of the square root of Weeden's football IQ as massaged by Professor Chudzinsky.

What does Mike Lombardi have to do with the Browns record next year?  Other than trolling what's the point of having him in this thread?

Unless someone has seen a hiring that they haven't bothered mentioning.

I am putting it at -4 with the option to increase decrease as they hire a GM and a DC.

The OP was miffed at my negative attitude. I suggested he start his own thread with the title as you see it.

He did. He put Lombardi in it to tease me. I pinned it to tease him. 

But the question is an interesting one...which is what you would expect from me. biggrin

Potentially too much fun to pass.

Makes no difference how many under we are. If we tie the L and L record of 5 wins a season it is as good as Mr. Brightness and Light is hoping for. Me, I'm going to take a stab at 8 and 8 with a shot at a winning season. So, -3

What is important?  Going with facing reality and realizing no matter what we do this spring, we have a long way to go to be even-up in the AFCN...so said Ozzie and I'm going with the wizard.  With Weeds and DA we will have a lot of WOW moments..some good some what???, but the training and building into a downfield passing game with a dominant running game will begin.  The most fun will be all the agita of Chud and Norv taking downfield risks in the manner of Arians at Pitt and Indy with posters crying for the safety of McCoy.

Second thought... Nas has a valid opinion. It will take some time to move out of the Lerner/ Holmgren regime.

7 wins under 11.

I see another 4-12 season as part of the reboot (NFC North and AFC East), then 5-11 next year vs. a tough NFC West and AFC South.

Re: How many games over 11 will the browns win next year? 


I think of it this way. If Chud had been our HC this past season, then we would have probably gotten 3 more wins. (I have rewatched all of them....quite sickening how we lost some of them). For sure we would have won the Eagles game, one of the Raven's game, and Colts. (That still leaves that Bengals game, and 2nd Ravens game (5 FG from 4 Red zone trips).  

Now in 2013 we will have: 1. our young players with more experience 2. some FA's  3. BW and TRich playing in a system suited to them.  

So....11 may be a reach...10 should be very doable.
