    Black Monday Starts Early

    Rob Chudzinski was fired today by the Browns I expect more heads to roll come Monday.

    Too bad seemed like a bright mind unfortunately injuries derailed him in Cleveland.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    I feel a little bit bad for him when Hoyer was healthy they were 3-2 and once he got hurt finished 1-10. But I can see why he is being let go.

    I don't care how bad the team is, you should never fire a coach after one season. If it's that obvious he's not a good coach you should fire yourself for hiring him.

    With turnover like that the Browns will never get it going in the right direction.

    Fired after one season? The Browns are turning into the NFL version of the Cubs. That is ridiculous.
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    I think he's just not interested anymore.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Why take the paycut? It's why I think Chuckie hasn't roamed an NFL sideline since Tampa fired him. You get all the luxuries and none of the migranes working for one of the media outlets.

    Recently hired coaches are getting about $5mill/yr. I can't imagine Gruden's making anywhere near that much for ESPN

    I watched every game this year (perhaps you did too, not suggesting otherwise).

    But the collapse over the last 8 games was inexcusable. I can't fault a change being made right now.

    There is a point to be made that the person who hired Chud should have some accountability.

    But he showed nothing as a coach. So if you think he is the proverbial coaching turd, better to dismiss him now rather than later.

    I think it's ridiculous and shows why the Browns are so terrible. Was Chudzinski really worse than Mangini and Schumur, who got two seasons? I know that was different ownership, but the point is the Browns are used to failure. How could they have expected Chudzinski to win given all of the elements of the Browns season (trading their starting RB without having any other RBs, heading into the year with Weeden as QB)?

    Maybe there's some other behind the scenes reason, but this just seems stupid. And apparently Josh McDaniels, the infamous Denver flameout, is a favorite to land the gig.

"If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Looking back, it was a mistake to keep Manigini and Schumur a second season, so I don't agree with that logic. I do realize you typically give a guy a few years, but if you think he is that bad...cut bait.

    I just think there is typically little reason to only give a coach in the NFL only one season. Mike Mularkey, Hue Jackson, and Cam Cameron are the most recent ones I can remember, and in each of them you can point to regime changes (plus Mularkey and Cameron's teams won 2 and 1 games, respectively). There is no regime change here.
