Hire him, make him the General Manager, and give him 100% control over the football operation. Lerner needs to step away and just sign the checks.
A lot of Browns fans are suggesting that Schottenheimer could fill the "Parcells" role. And I'd really support that move. Hell, I'd tap Cowher one last time and offer him whatever he'd like, but I'd doubt he'd touch the Browns with a ten foot pole.
My real dream is that Lerner sells the team to Dan Gilbert (or at least a huge share of it). But that's a real long shot of happening.
