Cleveland Browns Jerseys

One Game Left

With one game left in the 2009 season, the Cleveland Browns will face the Jacksonville Jaguars, riding a three game winning streak. The Browns have established a much needed identity in those wins, relying on a strong ground attack and consistent play on the defensive side of the ball. Their recent success on the field makes for an exciting finish to an otherwise forgettable season.

Eric Mangini and his staff will be dedicated to having this team playing it’s best football come Sunday. Their jobs are on the line and one more victory to bolster the argument that the system they put in place to turn this organization around works. A win would surely go a long way to proving to Mike Holmgren that keeping the staff intact would be a wise decision.

If they can successfully convince Holmgren that his efforts would best be spent preparing for the 2010 NFL Draft, Mangini and company would find themselves in a real position of strength going into their second season guiding this team. With 11 draft picks to work with and money to invest in free agency, no team in the NFL is poised for a bigger turn around next year than the Browns.

So, even though fans will again have to face another season of playoff football without the Browns involved, there is at least one more game worth watching. The game against Jacksonville means a great deal to players and coaches. Many would do well to use this game as a tryout for next year’s team. There is a lot riding on the next few months for this organization. Fans can’t handle another rebuilding year. 2010 begins this Sunday, and this Browns team will be ready.

    Y’know — and I’ve said this before — I am really suspect of these guys that can speak only of the “system” they are using. To me, that’s corporate speak for “I don’t know how to coach players — only methods.” As I see it, you coach to your talent first and draft to the “system” you want to play. Cleveland has 4-3 personnel; it has shown up repeatedly in the past 5 games. Play this and quit fartin’ around with this “system” garbage.
