Norv has always been a good OC, just not a good Head Coach.

Inevitable. But they should have kept Dick Juron.

Norv, is going to install his Fall Asleep offense that he's been using for the past 19 Years!!

Oh wonderful. One step forward, ten steps back. Norv is a good hire, but Lombardi?! Lombardi is a buffoon, ignorant, no talent four time losing hack. He has not been working for an NFL team for 5 years for a reason, HE CAN NOT EVALUATE TALENT! His latest and greatest evaluation was on the Browns, when he said we wasted a second round pick on Josh Gordon. He was the one who wanted Lane Kiffin as head coach, he was the one that was banned from Raider practices by the head coach because he publicly criticized the team that he put together, but laid ALL the blame on the HC (Art Shell). I won't even go into the draft picks made by him with his first stint with the Browns. Yeah another good job by the Browns, new owner, same stupid !@$ mistakes. We are headed nowhere with that hack kissing Banners backside!

Da Browns are in a very tough Division, there's a good chance they send 3 Teams into The Playoffs next year, I thought they started to show that they could be in the near future competitive, but the New Owner thought otherwise and he runs the team! I think Lombardi was not a Good Hire and we will see about The coaching staff! They got some really talented young players!

Like I've been saying everywhere I could post it...firing Tom Heckert was a big mistake. He was doing a great job. Now hiring Lombardi was even a bigger one. Looks like Haslam is going to have to make is share of mistakes before the Browns get turned around....was just hoping he understood this stuff better.
