Watching the press conference live on NFL Network.

Cleveland is very serious about forming a playoff type team for next season. This is will be a very interesting 2013 season so far.

AFC North will no doubt be even more competitive in the future.

Michael Lombardi and Rob Chudzinski?

I can see the Browns totally cleaning house again in a year or two.

I completely agree. If Lombardi was good at his job, he wouldn't have been in broadcasting all these years. He was directly connected with the failure that was the Raiders for all those years, and on top of that he's a Belichick guy. Belichick guys only do well when they're with their overlord.

Didn't they hire a General Manager already? What is the point of hiring Lombardi?

Well apparently Lombardi is not a big fan of Weeden so that tells me Weeden will be gone and become a star player elsewhere since Lombardi doesn't know talent. On the bright side, NFL Network became more watchable.

Don't get me wrong, I think Chudzinski has the potential to be a good head coach, but I think he needed a different situation. He didn't need to take over a perennial joke in a division with two perennial contenders and an up-and-coming Bengals team that managed to turn two first round picks (including a top 5 pick) in to an injury prone Runningback and 30-year-old Mediocre QB.

As for Lombardi, he was heavily involved with the Raiders when they started their descent in to the abomination they are today and he always made stupid proclamations on NFLN. He strikes me as the kind of guy who needs to be right and would let it cloud his judgement. For being a football guy, his opinions always seemed stupid and poorly informed.

Edit: Oh, and when you look at Lombardi's work when he was in charge of the Browns the last time, his first round picks are a veritable who's who of complete and utter busts. He has no place being involved in talent evaluation. He also tore Cleveland to shreds for taking...Joe Haden, one of their brightest young stars. He's the definition of ineptitude in regards to talent evaluation.

I'm a bit on the ledge with this hiring. I think he's better than he was in the past but still just a risky hire. Even our new owner Haslem said it was a bit of a risky/stretch hire. I suppose time will tell.

Michael Lombardi is only well known because of his last name. He isn't that great of a football mind. Regardless we need to stop underestimating the Brown. They are routinely picking high in the draft and played very very well this year (by Cleveland's standards).

They could be a dangerous team with Norv Turner at OC & Horton at DC. Not sure about Lombardi, but Horton & Turner are two very good coordinators.

It's really the hirings of Norv Turner and Ray Horton that will make or break the Browns. Horton is an excellent DC, but I'm not sure how Norv will work out in that offense. I couldn't really care less about Michael Lombardi.
