Could 09 Be Cleveland’s Last Go Around with Randy Lerner?

Randy Lerner’s time as the Cleveland Browns owner hasn’t been pretty by any means. In fact it has been really disgusting how the best fans in football have been given garbage, and myself just like all the other Browns fans are sick of it.

But, I do believe that maybe Eric Mangini can do it right and this all can end with having a parade in downtown Cleveland. I think to myself – does Lerner realize that the Cavaliers are having the best season in Cleveland since the 95 Indians and more time is spent on people talking about this football team?

Do you know why? Because this city cares deeply about this football team. The Browns as a unit are family to many people. As a Browns fan I think it is time for Randy Lerner to do some soul searching because if it doesn’t work this time he should look in the mirror if he hasn’t already and see where the problem is.

Cleveland Brown Nation needs something to bark at. Lerner’s first obstacle comes in the draft. We need to hit not only on the 5th pick but also the two other picks in the second round and the rest of the picks on the second day. It is easier said then done as we know.

Braylon Edwards I feel, is going to be gone by the time draft day comes and that could mean Michael Crabtree could be on his way to Cleveland, with the Browns getting another high draft pick, hopefully in the first round to get a defensive player early in the draft.

Why not trade one of the two Quarterbacks to get more draft picks and start laying down a new foundation to this team? It’s going to be a distraction having this quarterback competition in Berea, and I think both quarterbacks need a lot of work to be successful and not caring who the Browns decide on, just get rid of the other guy to make the quarterbacks life a little more easier.

I end it with this: Mr. Lerner if it doesn’t work this time will you please throw in towel and sell the team?! We deserve better and it will get better eventually. Go Browns and Destination SuperBowl!!!!

    I think Lerner is a fine owner. He hires football minds to get the job done. Yes, every regime has sucked, and Mangini may be terrible or may be the golden choice, but I think he’s a good owner. The statements he has made about Cleveland and how the city deserves a winner show he does care. The dude fired Savage and RAC with money left to be paid on their contracts and hired a new coach and GM. If he were Mike Brown, he’d stick his nose the the decision making and really be a bad owner. I have no complaints about Randy.

    Thanks cglenn for the voice of reason. RAC and Savage were viewed as excellent choices in the beginning. Now everybody wants to blame Lerner like they knew better. They are embarrassed for believing in RAC and Savage, for claiming we were going to win the division last year. Now, to play it safe they are going to damn Mangini before he has a chance to fail so they don’t make the same mistake again.
    Back to reality, this year, like many others, is a rebuilding year. No coach, gm or owner resigns or gets fired during or immediately after a rebuilding year. They are given the chance to build something and see what their creation can do. “Maybe Next Year” has a new meaning for our Mr. Ward.
    Lerner takes risks like and sometimes it doesn’t work out. But we should be grateful to have an owner that wants to win so bad he’s willing to spend. And as far as “deserving better”: why? Do we deserve better? As long as schmucks like Ward are writing articles like this we don’t deserve better. Luckily, as proven by steelers fans, you can still have a winning organization with an undeserving fanbase.
