The bigger playoff winner this final week of the NFL season? The Cleveland Browns. Granted, the Browns finished up a dreadful and disappointing season by beating Houston. But their big victory came in that the Ravens did not make the playoffs. The biggest need that the Browns have is GM. Before a head coach, a draft plan, or free agency strategy, the Browns need a General Manager who will make it all happen. On the top of the short list is fan favorite Hall of Fame Browns TE Ozzie Newsome. Ozzie has been the primary builder of a solid Ravens club. With the Ravens out of the playoff picture, the Browns are now free to pursue Ozzie, which they would not have been able to do so soon if the Ratbirds were in playoff contention. I hope they move fast, pay whatever it will cost, and bring Ozzie home to build a championship club.
