He is not playing games and he seems to really know football... Something Randy Lerner did not.
I feel like Haslam is completely devoted to reviving this franchise. We'll see.
Coming from an Eagles fan who experience the dog years? He turned this franchise from a joke into a contender. One that dominated the NFC East over the long run. SB trophies aside, he is the guy you want reviving this franchise. He will put in other pieces to make it fit. To steal your line, rest assured the Browns will no longer be the brown bag over head joke outsider fanbases see them as. Banner isnt a selfish, power hungry, egotistical prick. He knows football but most importantly knows how to put together a organization that is all on the same page and thats winning football. He also is great at managing the cap. One of the best in the league imo. If you look at teams that have done a good job at this? Eagles are one and he is a huge reason. In todays football its key imo to being successful more than 1, 2 years but a consistent year in and year out approach.
Not to make him into some GOD sent gift, but I just love the move. Its a serious one by the owner. Hope it works out. I'd really like to see Trich excel and be apart of a winner.
