10:24 AM ET 12.19 | It's beginning to look like Eric Mangini may be replaced by Jon Gruden in Cleveland. All it will take is maybe $7 million a year. It's believed that the Browns job may be the only one that really interests Gruden. Browns president Mike Holmgren knows Gruden well from their days together in Green Bay and San Francisco.

It's too cold there for Jon.

Whoever it might be the Brownies would be smart to dump Mangina. Nobody is going anywhere with that jerk as HC. NFL career = OVER!

That's a bummer I thought Maginia was turning it around in Cleveland.

Another change in the coaching means another change in the system which means another year of rebuilding. I feel like Charlie Brown trying to kick the football and Lucy pulling ball.

This can only be bad news for Colt McCoy as Gruden will bury him in the bench when he starts bringing in more high-mileage journeymen QBs in through the revolving door.

"Next Browns coach could be..." in for a lot of frustration.

I don't think that would happen this time with Gruden. He got to know and study McCoy a lot prior to the draft and was very complimentary of his knowledge and skill set.

The Browns need to bench Colt so when he gains free agent status, he can come back to Texas as QB for the Cowboys or Texans. I do not care which. Both need him.

True... the one thing that Gruden did consistently well was hoard QBs.

I was really hoping the Redskins could have another new coach next season. Don't be jealous is we sign Chucky, It'll only be for one season.

No doubt. Although, the weather in the Bay Area is nice year-round.

With Gruden It'll be more like Lucy pulling the ball away and ramming a sharp stick up Charlie Browns butt. It must really take super human tenacity to be a Browns fan.

Excellent point. Also, there's no guarantee bringing in Gruden translates to any success. No matter what a HC has done in the past, bringing in an experienced HC is always a crap-shoot. Gruden built a SB-caliber team in Oakland, and then took Dungy's Bucs to the SB. Where did the Bucs go after that? Downhill, in spite of having Gruden as the coach.

Why would you leave such a great gig for the sidelines? I just don't see it.

Repeating the same action over and over and expecting different results. How many Owners does that describe? League full of lunatics.
