Your pick is looking awfully solid. I imagine word of the firing (Of Both Heck, and Shur) will be leaked Sunday morning, but you wont see the "Official" Press conference until Monday.

Your going to see this Tweet from Grossi or Schefter Sunday morning: "Browns coach Pat Shurmer and GM Tom Heckert have been notified that this will be their last game as members of the Cleveland Browns organization"

No way. They will at least have the appearance of an orderly process.
First the season ends, then the FO comes in for interviews. The next day after the last game is awfully quick, even.

1/6/13 - Only 'cause the other days just after the steeler game are mostly taken.

Ahhh, I don't want to lose on a technicality......I'm thinking if they get blown out by the Steelers, there's no chance Haslam holds back for a few days just for appearances.

I think it would be funnier if he shows up at the airport and TSA nabs him for not having a ticket in the ticketed passenger area.

From Cleveland.com:

New CEO Joe Banner stressed Tuesday that he'll act swiftly on the futures of coach Pat Shurmur and General Manager Tom Heckert following the season finale in Pittsburgh Dec. 30.

"I think we'll make the decisions quickly after the season," Banner said on a conference call to announce the hiring of his new president Alec Scheiner, former right-hand man for Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. "I don't want to say if it's one day or two days or three days but I think it will be quickly."

I'm just glad that the change will be made. Good luck Grady and Andrew6586 (1/1/13) and StewieG (1/2/13) with The Score (1/3/12) a long shot

The contest should have been to pick the hour and minute Shurmur got fired on 12/30 or 12/31.

Have they done it yet?

WTF are they waiting for?

In an ironic twist, Shurmur's popularity will hit an all-time high in Cleveland in mid to late September 2013 when the next rube starts out 0-3 or so. People will be coming onto this board saying idiotic things like, "We should have kept Shurmur...he had us on the right track." Blah, blah, blah.

Good riddance, Fritz.

- N. Swisher doubled to center, A. Cabrera scored
- J. Giambi doubled to deep right center, N. Swisher to third, N. Swisher out at home
- J. Giambi caught stealing, catcher to third

This was fun, we start a new contest on who the Rooney Rule candidate will be.

CFNY ... congrads. PM me your name, address, and where you want the gift card ordered from.

More importantly, congrads to all Browns fans on the SHUR era finally being over.
