Isn't Shurmur good with QB's? I could be mistaken especially because the Browns haven't had a good QB in forever.

Jason LaConfora said that if Linny is fired from DET Shurmur is a candidate.

How many coaches have the Browns gone through in the last few years?

It brings me great joy.. Mistake HOLLA!!

Shurmer is just way too conservative as a play caller. He set Sam

2 years back with his offense. He keeps his QB's in a leash and plays not to lose.

I don't understand why coaches get fired for not being able to win with terrible rosters. You could put Bill Belicheck on that team (again) and they still wouldn't have a winning record.

That would be truly hilarious with Stafford and Megatron. Shurmur is in love with dinking and dunking. His offense sucks. Held Sam's development back.

There is a lot of Dinking and Dunking going on DET as it is. After all

It's Scott Linehans offense, He uses quick screens and RB dump offs.

That is great to hear. Wish we could get someone to get Stafford's mechanics in order.

Not really surprised to see Shurmuir go, but most of us who are Browns fans aren't thrilled by the fact that the new regime is also planning on letting GM Tom Heckert go too.

Of course, whe you spend a billion dollars on something, you get to make your own decisions, don't you?



Just none of this guy please.

Heckert isn't that bad. I wouldn't mind if the Jets gave him an interview.

Don't really get why they fired heckert. He really shored up the talent on that D-line
