Browns preparing to resume action

Romeo Crennel has no plans to fire or demote offensive coordinator Maurice Carthon despite a struggling offensive unit. While he did say he might try to incorporate more of his own input into certain gameday calls, Romeo believes that it is going to have to be a team effort, coaches and players included, to get this thing turned around.

Crennel said all of the offensive coaches will continue to have input in the game plan.

“When they leave the meeting room, we want them to feel good about and to be on board with the plan,” he said.

However, the one thing that will be different is Crennel’s hands-on involvement with the offense as the week of practice goes along, and, more importantly, in the games.

“Some of that will be presence in the meetings, overriding plays if I need to, or calling a play if I have a feel for it,” Crennel said. “I’m going to insure that we follow the game plan to give us the best chance.”

Crennel on his feelings towards the coaching staff.

“I told them that I have confidence in every one of them. By working together, we can get this thing straightened out. That is what I believe. I may be crazy, stupid or naive, but that’s what I believe.

“I think I have good coaches. I have good kids on the team, I believe in them, and I’m going to give them a chance to do their job. We will try doing the things we do well and keep doing them in order to develop some consistency to win games.”

Now that we’ve all had a chance to rest and take a break from the Browns for a week, what do you all think about the outlook of the Browns for the rest of the season?

The bye week came at a good time and gave the entire team a chance to evaluate themselves and refocus before things had a chance of really spinning out of control. Let’s hope Romeo and crew have done everything in their power to fix the offensive woes because that has obviously been the area which has plagued us the most. That being said, don’t expect things to magically change overnight, either. The Browns have had a chance now to rethink some of their strategies but it’s hard to imagine them going out against Denver and completely turning it on. We are still in the middle of the building process whether you want to believe it or not and it’s going to take time.

The bye week also gave the team a chance to get healthy. Bodden and Baxter should be back to finally solidify our corner position and hopefully McGinest has healed from his calf injury.
