Browns may have made inspired move to fire Lombardi

Published Add your comment

Cleveland Browns may have just made the perfect move to push their franchise in the right direction.

That may sound like an insane statement, but the decision to remove Michael Lombardi from the GM position and install Ray Farmer may well be a genius move.

ESPN's Chris Sprow posted on Twitter Tuesday explaining, "Browns have now had 3 different head coaches and 3 different GMs in the last 407 days. Decent."

But just because it sounds ridiculous does that mean you have to keep people on board because of poor continuity historically? Even if they are not the right person for the job?

Now the Browns recent decisions may sound like they are taking a leaf out of the late Al Davis' playbook, but if it's not going to work decisions have to be made.

This years NFL Draft is so crucial to the Browns next ten years as a franchise.

They need a quarterback with class to complement their team, and particularly their wide-out sensation Josh Gordon.

Every staff member on the Browns need to be on the same page regarding which player they want to select in May.

It's understood that their new GM Farmer sees a QB as priority, which is a good sign for the Browns.

However, which one should they select?

They will probably choose between either Johnny Manziel or Teddy Bridgewater, with the Browns reportedly also interested in trading up to get the first overall pick.

The only way the Browns decision to fire Lombardi can be seen as successful is if the new regime gets down to business quickly.

Cleveland need to start vetting every aspect of their possible QB, and come up with a candidate and a plan of action to secure their desired player.

Whether that means the Browns should trade or not remains to be seen, but they need to start the process right-away.
