With Colt McCoy Out, Is Mangini's Job in Jeopardy?

In addition to the work that I do here at Dawg Pound Daily, I have the great opportunity to write a weekly column with the Blog Blitz section over at NFL.com. I’ll post an excerpt of my article, and you can follow the link to read the rest.

Here is this week’s excerpt:

Colt McCoy has fallen victim to the devious high ankle sprain that has bulldozed through Browns quarterbacks this season, and it’s not known how long he will be out. If the same injuries to Jake Delhomme and Seneca Wallace are any indication, it could be four to six weeks.

McCoy brought a certain level of excitement to the Browns and, more importantly, he helped engineered important wins against quality opponents. Combine that with the play of running back Peyton Hillis and it looks like the Browns are beginning to build something in Cleveland…

    I don’t think for a minute that Mangini should feel safe in his job. And Brian Daboll is a disgrace as an offensive coordinator.

    It was a beautiful day at CBS on Sunday as our Brownies prevailed over the Panthers. But that was DESPITE Mangini and Daboll – not because of them. It should never have come down to a missed FG by Casey. Way too many pass attempts by Delhomme – that is bad play calling. RUN THE FOOTBALL. You have a beast of a RB, the best FB in pro football, and a terrible defense for Carolina. No red flags thrown on two bad spots late in the game. A decision to go for it on fourth down when it was an easy FG for Dawson at that end of the field. Just plain stupid. I have a prediction – Rob Ryan will be around for a while but not in the same capacity.

    In the end, a win is a win. We will take it. Hell, we could have been in Buffalo to watch that dropped pass in the endzone for the win.

    My son was smiling on our way out. That’s good enough for me.

    Just so happens that I passed through Tuscola, TX where Colt got his football start and on to U of Texas…I stopped at a store and asked if they watched Colt in High School and all said yes and how proud they have been of him, and how he Blossomed at UT…Cleveland got a good man who happens to be a quarterback who happens to be a natural leader…He will return to the Browns starting job…UT found out this year what being without a natural leader is like.
