In addition to the work that I do here at Dawg Pound Daily, I have the 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:
I wish I didn’t have to write that title. I want nothing more than to say that head coach Eric Mangini will be back in 2011, but the latest loss to the Buffalo Bills has put that possibility into jeopardy. Stability is still a pretty foreign concept for the Browns, especially when it comes to the coaching staff, so this probably shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone.
Nevertheless, that doesn’t make it any less frustrating. Mangini is about to close out his second full season with the Browns, and not one week has gone by without someone wondering just when the Browns will come out and say they’d rather have Jon Gruden or Bill Cowher coaching the team. Mangini isn’t just working to improve the Browns; he’s constantly fighting off what appears to be a increasing number of people who wouldn’t like him even if he saved a group of babies from a burning hospital.
