You know, I was just watching the documentary on the NFL Network "A Football Life" presenting the 1995 Cleveland Browns team when Bill Belicheck was the head coach. & I wondered what would've happened to this historic franchise or what would this team had accomplished if they never departed to Baltimore in 1996. It kinda makes you wonder if this team may have won a Super Bowl, some division titles, or even a playoff game or two. To this day, Browns fans (old school & new) despise former owner Art Modell to his grave. Since '96, the Baltimore Ravens have won 2 Super Bowls & the Browns have switched head coaches seemingly every year. The quarterback position has been the biggest sting w/ this roster, going back to when the Browns returned to the NFL in 1999, selecting Kentucky gunslinger Tim Couch w/ the #1 overall pick in the draft that same year. Couch has gone on to become a bust along w/ a handful of other quarterbacks including Spergon Wynn, Charlie Frye, Brady Quinn, & Colt McCoy. Now after drafting Johnny Manziel & considering some off the off-the-field problems surrounding him this year, where does the organization go from here? It's not quite time to panic just yet, but the kid's got some issues, & the front office should've saw some of this coming. He has an opportunity to right the ship & learn a thing or two from free agent pickup Josh McCown, but Manziel's gotta get his faculties straight if he expects to take future snaps in the NFL for any team. The Browns can become a playoff team in 2015, & maybe even win the AFC North, but they got a ton of work to do. It all falls on the shoulders of head coach Mike Pettine, whose team showed some promise last year going 7-9. Now if things don't work out w/ this regime, they may have to ask Bernie Kosar to come out of retirement. He still might have an arm at his age.
