Re: So let's reset on Haslam.

Re: So let's reset on Haslam. 


Lane says Lombardi was a backstabbing MF'er when he was here with the old Browns. That was 18-22 years ago. Maybe something has changed over the years. 

The question is whether he can hire and/or retain good scouts and can he put in place an evaluation system that consistently brings in talent in the draft and free agency. He hasn't worked in the league in five years. In some cases the person could have had his pick of jobs but decided to stay in broadcasting (e.g. Cowher). In Lombardi's case, I think it was more like nobody wanted to hire him. 

Until now.

But, having just read MKC's column on the hiring announcement, I don't feel as pessimistic about it. Supposedly Lombardi has more "self-awareness" now and is no longer driven by ambition. Says if he was the same guy as he was in the 90s he would not have been hired. Just have to wait and see, as usual.

Come on Pros...what'd ya expect him to say.

On the flip side of the coin...I hope he's right.

MKC is good for two things.  1.) Summing up other peoples stories on the Browns and 2.) pushing forward whatever agenda they have on the docket over in Berea. 

Pugsley probably typed the story up for her to make sure she got in all the parts of how he is a "changed man". 

Listening to that presser I swear to God I thought the Mafia Lawyer left his vineyard and was back behind the curtain working the text on the teleprompter.
