Default Does this surprise anybody else?

Anybody else surprised that nobody wants to coach the browns?

All jokes aside - and they are plentiful - it's a daunting task. Aside from the fact that the Browns have been abysmal since returning to the league (1 playoff berth in 14 seasons & 9 double-digit loss seasons in their last 10), they are in a division where the other 3 teams have had 9 playoff berths in the last 4 seasons. That means the AFC North has had 5 of the last 8 wild card teams. By comparison, the AFC East has had 2 in that time (the Jets in 2009 & 2010) and the AFC South, 1 (2012 Colts). The AFC West has not had a wild card team in that time.

Let me guess... is it because Marvin is an AWESOME coach with an AWESOME coaching staff and that he always makes AWESOME decisions with the coach's challenge flag in every game?

Let's face it, Marvin Lewis is just an AWESOME coach!

Well yeah, but I was thinking more along the lines that no one would want to coach the bengals.

MB is smart in that way.

What happens if Marvin quits? Will MB make himself the new head coach?

You're doing it wrong.

Woodley throws those baitless hooks out there hoping that some Bengals fan glomps on so he can celebrate another "success". You aren't supposed to answer.

The browns were abysmal before they left...they merely picked up where they left off when they returned.

Only 1 winning season from 1990 to when they left. Very bengalesque.

3-13
6-10
7-9
7-9
11-5
5-11

When browns fans cry foul that they succk because they are a expansion team, I tell them they succked before they left.
They cried for a new team and got same crappy team they left off with, which is only fair... now fix it you dog faced freaks....ya shoulda been careful what you wished for.

If a coach or player who truely believes in themselves and thinks they are good at what they do, should look for the challenge in trying to take a dismall team somewhere.

Too many times players or coaches only look to take on or join a team that is already complete. If you are are as good as what you claim or others claim then taking the harder road will generate better results.

Maybe they should go after this guy.

Bob Ladouceur was the high school coach for De La Salle high school for 34 seasons. He is 58 years old and is retiring as head coach.

What is insane about this is that his teams record over those 34 seasons was 399 wins and 25 losses for a .938 winning percentage. His team the Spartans went 15-0 this season and won their 4th consecutive CIF open division state title.

You should become head coach of the browns, so you can pretend to have rivalry's with the Seahawks and Cardinals.

no one wants to coach the browns because no one would get a chance, they would just be fired after one year, setting everything back again
