8 team’s headed into the 2013 NFL season with new head coaches this season. Only 2 of those teams remain without a win. The 2 team’s that are without a win after week 2 of the regular season are the Cleveland Browns and the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The Browns finished the 2012 season with a record of 5-11. The Jaguars finished their 2012 season with only 2 wins and 14 losses, so it is understandable why they haven’t won a game yet. The Cleveland Browns on the other hand were deemed to be the most improved team in the AFC North, heading into the regular season.
Jimmy Haslam III, hired Rob Chudzinski as the team’s new head coach. Haslam deemed Chudzinski as one of the brightest young minds in the NFL. He assured the fans in Cleveland that he and Joe Banner were convinced that they hired the right guy as the team’s head coach.
With 6 other NFL team’s making a head coaching change and already winning, I wonder if Haslam and Banner still think they have made the right choice. There were other coaches the Browns could have considered after Chip Kelly ditch the Cleveland Browns.
Now, the fans in Cleveland have to wonder if their in for the same ole Browns with different faces calling the shots. Last season Chudzinski was the offensive coordinator for the Carolina Panthers. A team with a good quarterback and some key position players.
Even with that being said, Chudzinski’s Carolina offense finished out of the top 10 in total offense and the Panthers had a record of 7-9.
The Cleveland Browns have made a habit out of hiring head coaches that haven’t had much success as offensive coordinators in the NFL. The previous head coach the Browns had, was also a loser on the offensive side of the ball in St. Louis.
Now with Chudzinski as the Browns head coach, the Cleveland tradition of losing continues. The Browns could have made better choices for a head coach. You have to wonder of Cleveland is already labeled as a place good people don’t want to come to.
The Browns could have made a run at Arians who was coming off a tremendous year with the Colts after he stepped in as the team’s head coach when Pagano went down with an illness. Yet the Browns settled on an UN-proven guy like Rob Chudzinski.
The Cleveland fans have to be asking themselves why, why does this continue to happen in Cleveland? Even with new ownership it looks like the fans are stuck with the same ole Cleveland Browns….
