...and dude was pissy the 49ers weren't going to hire him.


Michael Lombardi is simply living off his last name.
Fun times in Cleveland again.

Wow they are more dis functional than the Raiders
This is...quite funny. So here's the question, do the Cleveland Browns of late top the San Francisco 49ers from 2003? The front office that fired Steve Marriucci will no clear replacement in mind. Sending the team into a tailspin where it took 8 years, 4 head coaches, and 4 general managers to recover from?

LaCanfora must be confused. His tears are soaking his man costume, because someone was mean to his boyfriend, but at least Lombardi will be available for more cuddling, with all of his spare time. In about a year, they'll have a column together on Bleacher Report.

I think they got themselves back on track. From what I understand, Farmer is a pretty diligent guy, nose to the grindstone, hard worker, now that the circus has left town in the form of Lombardi and his midget sidekick Banner, the Browns, with 2 1st round picks, could be heading in the right direction finally.

I feel so bad for their fans, they have a pretty good home field advantage when they are doing well in games. Their fans get loud. Oh well don't care for the Browns.
And the owner still under FBI investigation. It's rough out Cleveland. Seemed like Lombardi and them set the team up much better with all the draft picks. Just needed to find a qb. They definitely won that Richardson trade.

These guys got fired because free agents didnt want to go there?! Maybe it was something to do with the staph infections, losing and coaching and management turnover? Not to mention the thief owner. And then again they still play in Cleveland also known as the "mistake by the lake".

He is of no relation to Vince, in case anyone didn't know.

Is it bad that I want the Browns to be one of the top NFL franchises?
Maybe LeBron should be the GM?
I still feel bad for them their team moved away in the middle of the night, and then won a superbowl with a lot of the players they drafted ...those fans got screwed in a big way
