Is Tom Withers Kidding

Columbus, OH

#1 Dec 19, 2009
I found this article by AP writer Tom Withers fascinating where Mr. Withers stated the Browns, "...have been devoid of anyone of Holmgren's clout since returning to the league in 1999" Did Mr Withers do no research for the article or, if he did, does he not include Carmen Policy to have been the type of administrator with the same "clout" as Mr. Holmgren. Never mind he is probably using the term clout in some mangled way (google 'Mike Royko' and 'clout' to find the original Chicago-land definition of clout) but to say Mr. Policy did not have what it takes to build a winning franchise is ludicrous. What Mr. Policy did not have was an owner competent enough to tell an idiot coach like Butch Davis to shut-up and work with the front office. Instead, ownership dismissed Mr. Policy and gave Butch Davis far too much control and influence, which he promptly used to flush the Browns back to the drawing board. I wish the Browns good luck with Mr. Holmgren but don't believe we will see positive results until either 1) Mr. Lerner realizes he knows nothing about professional sports or, 2) Mr. Lerner openly states he hates his fan base and the league steps in to run the franchise.
Merry Christmas!
