Sadly, the Browns' unbelievable 10-win season has come to a close. It was certainly a memorable one! But unfortunately, many of the questions going into the 2007 season are left unanswered.
How long will Romeo Crennel coach the team?
Who is the quarterback of the future?
Here are a couple of bold predictions:
Romeo will be gone to Miami. Parcells wants one of his guys to coach the Fins and Romeo is a Parcells guy. The Browns will bring back Marty Schottenheimer for a career ending swan song. Rob Chudinski, the Browns' current offensive coordinator and one of Marty's assistants in San Diego, will be named Assistant Head Coach and will be the Head Coach in Waiting, ala Jason Garrett in Dallas.
Derek Anderson will be gone. Brady Quinn showed in his one series against the 49ers that he can be a bona fide NFL quarterback. An honest evaluation will show that Anderson benefitted immensely from throwing the ball to Braylon Edwards and Kellen Winslow. On far too many occasions, his passes were low and behind his receivers. Anderson as a restricted free agent will bring a large bounty of draft picks from a team like Atlanta, Chicago, or even Miami. And Cleveland needs draft picks to help fix the horrid defense.
So, the season is over. Let the speculation begin.
