Oh, Mangina. You're gonna have some big shoes to fill out there in Cle-heave-land (copyright JPPB). No really, some BIG shoes...some big britches too...
Hope you are planning on bringing your appetite with you. Though, judging by your current girth, I figure you've got a good shot at following in ol Romeo's footsteps.
One might ask - Eric, do you really think this is a good career move? Me, personally, I wouldn't have even interviewed, but you know, more power to you. I applaud your
idiocy optimism. And hey, at least you picked one of the teams that won't mind if you string together two or three disappointing seasons. They're used to it. Plus, you won't have to deal with Brett Favre. Actually, on the contrary, I'll bet Brady Quinn is a dream to work with. He can hold his clipboard AND yours like nobody else can. Maybe he can even get you some free Myoplex. Which reminds me, suck up all the team schwag you can. Wait, they're not paying you in schwag, are they? Oh right, and one more thing - invest in a closet full of shower sandals. I hear a Staph infection is pretty fierce!
As for the Browns, I guess they must think that the Patriots are a farm team or something. What's that obsession all about? I mean, I know the Pats are supposedly this century's first "dynasty," but like, how well did Romeo work out? Stallworth? Did Pioli even interview?
Whatever. This has failure written all over it.
Anyways, Mangina may be entering a world of pain, but these links will hurt so good (Did I seriously just reference John Cougar Mellencamp? Jesus, that's bleak)...
