Career Coaching Record: 4-12
Most NFL head coaches get a full two seasons to prove that they are the answer. This might not be the case with Pat Shurmur, who is already feeling heat from a passionate fanbase.
The Cleveland Browns were atrocious on offense, an area that Shurmur is supposed to specialize in. They ranked near the bottom in every single major statistical category, including points, passing yards, rushing yards, total yards and overall offense.
In fact, the Browns regressed as a team in Shurmur's first year. They had one less win over the previous season, and Cleveland struggled much more in the rushing game and producing touchdowns.
Overall, Cleveland finished in the cellar of the AFC North once again and lost their final six games of their campaign.
This needs to change for Shurmur's sake. The bad news is that they really don't have the talent to be competitive. Brandon Weeden is going to be replacing Colt McCoy as the Browns' starting quarterback, and while it remains to be seen how the rookie will perform, it is hard to imagine him being much of an upgrade over McCoy.
The Browns lack talent at the skill positions, which is also going to hinder Weeden's ability to progress as the team's signal-caller.
Adding more fuel to the fire burning under Shurmur's hot seat is their division. Cleveland is going to be going up against the Baltimore Ravens, Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals, all playoff teams from last season, a total of six times.
They also have outings against the Philadelphia Eagles, New York Giants, San Diego Chargers and Dallas Cowboys.This all adds up to a long 2012 season in Cleveland.
