When Mike Holmgren became the football czar of Cleveland, we all new that serious changes were on the horizon. Fans were all excited to have a proven winner calling the shots after more than a decade of perennial loserdom.
The first season came and the changes were seemingly minor, and so was the change in the team's record.
This offseason has brought a lot more change. A mostly new coaching staff and a few roster cuts seem to be just the beginning.
What's shocking has been the criticism some of these moves have met. It's like the fans of Cleveland have fallen victim to some sort of losing-roster Stockholm Syndrome.
Well, for those of you who have been resisting change, you better brace yourselves. Once the labor situation is settled and it comes time to start trimming down to the 53-man roster, you can bet there will be even bigger and less-popular changes.
This article will probably not be popular. This will probably cause some controversy, but I wanted to make some bold predictions instead of making the obvious calls.
It would be easy to predict that Jake Delhomme won't be with the team after this season, or that one of the unknown backup defensive tackles won't make the roster, but I wanted to come up with a list that might provoke some thought.
Please keep an open mind and remember that I'm not saying that this is what the Browns should do. These are just a couple moves that I can see happening in the next year.
