Browns fans are already calling for Pat Shurmur to be fired.
Whoa, whoa, whoa folks, it's WAY too early for that.
You have to remember that Shurmur is a rookie Head Coach and is assuming the duties of the Offensive Coordinator as well.
Quite honestly, it's way too much. Shurmur may turn out to be a decent Head Coach, but there is no way he can be effective pulling both jobs.
The Browns have already stated that they will hire an offensive coordinator who will relieve Shurmur of his duties.
Rob Chudzinski, Brian Daboll, Pat Shurmur; these are the coordinators the Browns have used in the past few seasons and quite honestly, none of them have done anything remarkable.
Chudzinski seemed to work well with Anderson...for a season. Daboll simply didn't have the tools, although McCoy seemed to work well in his system. Shurmur seemingly is unable to call a productive play in which the Browns gain yards.
Luckily, I'm not Mike Holmgren and I don't have to decide who the Browns offensive coordinator will be, but I'd like to believe it will be someone who is an offensive parallel to Browns DC Dick Jauron.
Jauron has done a marvelous job with the Browns defense. At one point in the season, the Browns were in the top five in defense, and continue to be in the top five in pass defense.
Jauron has had head coaching experience and clearly knows how to run a defense.
Likewise, Jon Gruden has had head coaching experience and clearly knows how to run an offense. He would never take the job in Cleveland, but one can only dream.
Someone like Gruden would definitely suffice for the Browns.
