: The California extrovert, who plans to make Cleveland his permanent address, also called a remarkable game aided by fine protection from the offensive line. He had time to throw the football and he took full advantage of his opportunities Nike Tony Romo Jersey. His favorite target was Paul Warfield, who just could be the top wide receiver in the game. In an attempt to shut off the former Ohio State star, who plays this rugged game at 178 pounds, the Cowboys alternated veteran Mel Renfro and rookie Otto Brown at the right corner. It really didn't matter which was on the coverage. Warfield grabbed eight passes, most on slants over the middle for 99 yards. THE BROWNS figured that they had to run enough to keep the Dallas defense, one of the finest in the league against infantry tactics, honest
Nike DeMarco Murray Jersey. They netted only 97 yards rushing with Leroy Kelly's 66 being tops, but it was enough to cool the Dallas rush on Nelsen.Experts expected the Browns to flourish as they moved to the AFC in 1970, joining the long-awful Pittsburgh Steelers, the weak Houston Oilers and the1968-expansion team Cincinnati Bengals
Dallas Cowboys Jersey.Instead, the Browns went 7-7 andwere second to the surprising Bengals in the 1970 divisional race,thenhad first-game playoff lossesin 1971 and 1972. By1970,Nelsen, though just 29, was on wobbly knees, promptingthe trade of Hall of Famer Warfield to the Miami Dolphins for the draft rights to quarterback Mike Phipps of Purdue; Hall of Famer Kelly, 28, was no longer a great, but simply a good running back, in part because star offensive linemen including Hall of Famer Gene Hickerson, 35, andDick Schafrath, 33, were on the downside of their careers, and blocking stalwart Monte Clark, 33, retired; big-play wide receiver Gary Collins, 30, had only two modest seasons left; linebacker Jim Houston, 33, and cornerback Erich Barnes, 35, were no longerof star caliber.Besides the Browns, the other NFL teams with no playoff wins since 1969 are the Bengals, Detroit Lions, New Orleans Saints and Houston Texans

: I anticipate a couple other really good football men to be involved. It's always been my experience, with teams that were successful that I was involved with, that it was more of a consensus than one person just saying this is what we're going to do
Nike Sean Lee Jersey. Now, I'm there to break the ties. If we can't come to a consensus, then I see that as my role. As far as specifics and who sets up the 53-man roster, who makes the cuts, how we go do all that kind of staff, I can get into more detail with you when I get there. That's not one man's decision ever, in any organization I've ever been in."(On if he will come in thinking he wants a West Coast Offense team)- "I think that's a decision I make after I talk to the head coach. If he doesn't like what I like then he has to convince me that what he's doing is better than what I would like to see
Custom Cowboys Jersey. That's the type of discussion that we have. Then after that, like I said, you come to a consensus, you come to an agreement. We both want the same thing for the Cleveland Browns and then once we decide on that, now you try and get the right personnel to fit the system. That's the way I've always done it and I anticipate that's the way we'll do it again."(On what he learned in his first stint as a general manger and president that will help him do better this time)- "Good question. I think when you go into an organization, like I'm coming into Cleveland, you have to get the right pieces in place, then you have to get the right people in place. When I was also the head coach and had the responsibly of being GM, it was very important to me that I have my personnel people in place and my financial people in place, because I was going to be very involved with coaching he football team. There have been some people that had that position that were more personnel people and, even though they were called the head coach, kicked the coaching responsibilities to the coordinators. I didn't do that. You can't do it all, you don't have enough time, so it's important to me that I had good people who I could go into a meeting, listen to what they had to say, say what I had to say and then make the decision that way. In Seattle, when I went in there the first time, I would say if I had to do it all over again differently, I would have made some of those changes sooner. It took a couple years to get the right people in place. Now, Mike Reinfeldt is the President of the Tennessee Titans. Ted Thompson, who was with me, I brought in, is now the President of the Green Bay Packers
Nike DeMarco Murray Jersey. Scot McCloughan, who was there, is General Manager of the San Francisco 49ers. We had a good group of people. If I had to do it all over again, I would have made immediate changes and tried to get the ball rolling a little sooner. That was one thing. Second thing is, in the personnel part of it, our first draft was less than spectacular, because I had really two groups giving me information, the existing group that had been there and the new group that came in with me Nike Tony Romo Jersey. We didn't do a good job with the draft, because I didn't
Dallas Cowboys Jersey. I learned from that. Those types of errors, I trust I won't do again, I won't make again."Transcript courtesy:Dan MurphyPublic Relations CoordinatorCleveland Browns Related topics: cleveland browns, eric mangini, mike holmgren, randy lerner<p><a href=''></a></p>
