Default Browns reward poor results

Quote:
Grantham came to the Browns in 2005 to take his first coordinator job after working as a defensive line coach with the Houston Texans from 2002-04. He had never worked with Crennel, but had experience with the 3-4 scheme.

"Todd is a good young coach," Crennel said. "He is thorough. He is on top of it. We get along good."

The Browns suffered a number of injuries and ranked 27th in total defense in 2006, allowing 344.8 yards a game. The rushing defense was 29th (142.2 yards) and the passing defense 15th (202.6).

The Browns ranked 22nd in scoring, allowing 22.3 points a game.

"I feel very fortunate," said Grantham, who praised owner Randy Lerner, Savage and Crennel.
"I feel very fortunate" - no sh*t!

Thats alot of money to hand a guy who's pro coaching resum? consists of the Texans and the Browns.

This doesn't even merit a statistical breakdown of how bad those units have been on the two teams - we all know they have been awful.

So why did he get such a nice extension?

Quote:
CORNRICH CONNECTION PAYS OFF FOR GRANTHAM?

A league source tells us that the contract extension signed by Browns defensive coordinator Todd Grantham with the Cleveland Browns will pay him $1 million per year.

That's not a bad chunk of change for a guy who works under a head coach who is a defensive specialist, and who presides over a generally crappy defense.

The move also is causing raised eyebrows among league insiders because Grantham is represented by Neil Cornrich, who also happens to represent Browns General Manager Phil Savage. So, to the extent that Savage was the person in charge of the deal, an agent was negotiating with one of his clients about another client. So Cornrich had a duty to get the best possible deal for one of his clients -- even if it meant creating the perception that his other client got raked over the coals.

So, in other words, it's another example of the kind of conflict of interest that the NFL needs to eliminate.

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

Good question, I have no idea. Maybe it's because it's proving something we knew all along, some people in the NFL have a couple of screws loose...

Not exactly a ringing endorsement from Crennel, either.

I'm thorough. I'm on top of it. I could probably even get along good with Romeo. Apparently I have all the qualifications to be a Browns coach!
