08:06 AM ET 12.31 | After Sunday's finale, Browns coach Pat Shurmur delivered an emotional speech, then went through a lot of hugging with his players. Following the speech, Shurmur stepped up to the podium and admitted he's gotten the silent treatment from new owner Jimmy Haslam and CEO Joe Banner for the past few weeks, which should've told him all he needed to know. ... As of Sunday night, Shurmur and Heckert had not heard anything, but WJW Ch. 8 recorded video of Shurmur carrying boxes out of the Browns facility to his car. "I have not spoken to Joe Banner or Jimmy Haslam in quite some time," said Shurmur. "I saw them before the game but not close enough to speak." In previous weeks, Shurmur had regular contact with both Haslam and Banner.

Normally, the silent treatment from your boss is a blessing.

At the same time, Andy Reid was seen carrying his boxes through the back entrance of the Browns facility.

Well, the food bill will really shoot up if nothing else.

You would think he could afford to pay someone to carry his boxes.

I thought the Brown's showed some life this year... it was a good 5 -11 :-)

Jimmy Haslam is my boss too....the silent treatment is definitely a blessing.

The Browns were competitive. Shurmur may not deserve another year, but he at least deserves acknowledgement.

Coached a good game yesterday with a third string rookie QB and everyone injured...

That's the perfect example of how low the franchise is right now..can't blame the new owner for wanting to change it for the better. NOW, we'll see if his plan works out, thats another story

I agree...should've fired him weeks ago, if you weren't going to co-exist with the guy!

Well, the next HC knows what to expect if/when the poop starts hitting the fan.

+1

The silent treatment in that environment is childish. They could have done what every other NFL team does in that situation and just given him the dreaded "Vote of Confidence".

I thought Schumur was starting to get the job done, too bad, but understandable!!!

December 31, 2012  03:10 PM ET

Attention Norv Turner..... Cleveland on the phone.....

Well I guess if you own the team you can behave any way you want, but that shows a complete lack of class. Fifth graders act like that. On the upside, Shurmur doesn't have to hang in Cleveland anymore.
