This is, uh, curious to say the least. As one Browns fan wrote me in an email:
"Um.... What the [redacted] is going on here? Didn't they just hire this guy less than a year ago? Did his philosophy suddenly change, or were they somehow unaware of it when they gave him the keys to the franchise?
[The fact that 'the Browns also have had discussions with Mike Keenan about taking a position in their business operations'] worries me. Somehow I doubt it's Mike Keenan, the Larry Brown of hockey coaches, but the way this team's been run that would hardly surprise me at this point. Hey, he led the Rangers to the Cup in '94, maybe he can get the Browns to the Super Bowl! Sigh. Although I guess I'd still rather have him than Millen."
When in doubt, just compare your team's GM to Matt Millen and everything doesn't seem quite so dire.

Just in case Sunday night did not make it clear, defense rules the NFL in 2016. The best teams in overall DVOA all combine top-five defenses with below-average offenses. The Eagles now lead the league in both defense and special teams and are back to No. 1 overall.
