Action News 19 reporter Dan DeRoos pulled one of those “I want to ask you an embarrassing question but I can’t ask it on my own,” so he phrased his question to team owner Jimmy Haslam indirectly. DeRoos cited comments left on the news station’s Facebook page when asking whether the team was run by “The Three Stooges,” as fans believe.
The Browns’ “Three Stooges” would be Haslam, Joe Banner and GM Mike Lombardi.
Haslam responded to DeRoos in a defensive manner, assuring the team’s fans that they have competent leadership in charge of the team.
“I feel really confident that we have the right people to take this team where we want to,” Haslam said. “We have the best fans in the world. I’ve said our fans deserve betters.”
Haslam also said nobody would work harder than them to make the Browns a winner.
The Browns have been taking a lot of heat for firing Rob Chudzinski after just one year on the job. Chud didn’t have much to work with in terms of quarterback play, and that is a big reason why the team went 4-12. But if they feel like the team got worse as the season went on — and it did — then it was a wise decision to fire Chud and look for a new coach, even if it was an unfair one.
