Not that I have any personal affinity for the Browns, but I think this is another stellar marketing move by Coach Bowden.

Bowden Ball 2014.....Fiat Lux.

Well I'm a Browns fan, but not a Holmgren fan so much. Not that I hate the guy, just don't have much faith in him right now. I'm sure he'll give one of his speeches about building for the future and patience and all that stuff that we've heard a million times. Probably even draw those comparisons between the Browns and Zips that so many in NE Ohio like to do. But the sad part is, the Zips actually are improving while the Browns are getting worse. I think I'm more excited to hear that Jim Donovan is also going to be there. He's very respected in Cleveland.

As a Steeler fan, I'd like anyone affiliated with the Browns to stay away from the Zips. We're bad enough.

Lerner has taken some teams to the super bowl too, but they don't play in Cleveland or play American football...

Yeah. I think the Browns would be better off buying a magazine for draft day. They couldn't do any worse, and they would save a lot of money.

Having Mike Holmgren's job is like being named captain of the Titanic AFTER the ship hit the ice. That franchise was doomed from the start.

Oh, come on. Some of you sound like a bunch of Pittsburg Pirates fans. Keep that negative mindset away from the zips.

I'm not negative about the Zips, but the Cleveland Clowns...I mean Browns...that's a different story.

I have formed no opinion of Holmgren's tenure with the Browns yet. Regardless, he does have a respected history in the NFL, and speaking about football in Akron is not a bad thing at all.

Someone might want to compare attendance numbers between Pittsburghs AAA team and the Indians lately.

The Ohio ball clubs are not doing too well this year so far. The Reds are in 20th place (27,141 average), while the Tribe are in dead last (18,219 average) in the MLB.
