Browns to meet with Chudzinski in the morning

Amid mounting speculation that the Browns will fire coach Rob Chudzinski after only one season, a league source tells PFT that the team will meet with Chudzinski on Monday morning to discuss the situation.

It’s currently not looking very good.

The biggest problem for Chudzinski is that, after a decent start, the team bottomed out, going 1-10 over the final 11 games of the season.  They’ve lost those 10 games on average by more than 10 points each.

And then the Browns ended the season with seven straight losses, a Factory of Sadness record.

Despite issues at quarterback, it’s hard to blame the performance on a lack of talent; the Browns are sending five players to the Pro Bowl.Last year, the Chiefs had six Pro Bowlers and two wins.  With a new coach and a new quarterback, the Chiefs turned it around, dramatically.

The Browns may indeed decide to do the same thing.  While nothing officially has been decided, it’s not looking good.

    Panic button move. This is why the Browns are the Browns.

    That means they’re sticking with him.

    The Browns need to meet with Bess and Little.

    Same old Browns.

  5. doe22us says: Dec 29, 2013 5:03 PM

    Another one and done, no wonder the Browns suck, give the guy till year two to see steady growth or improvement, going through coaches like a wet paper basket (dont really know what that means) is a recipe for disaster. Yeah, being called to the principals office usually signify that he is done.

    So, a team with no QB that traded it’s top 5 2012 pick a few games into the season expects more than 4 wins from a first year coach.

    I feel bad for Browns fans.

    Makes you wonder who they can attract to that job if they only give Chud 1 year.

    Why not fire the dope who thought that Paul Kruger was a pass rusher worth making very rich on the first day of free agency.

    Seems like only yesterday Browns fan was in here popping off about being the best team in the AFC North.

    That spot in the basement remains exclusively reserved for the Browns.

    I feel it would be a mistake to blow the entire coaching staff up. He deserves another year to show improvement in a team that shows some promise.

  10. stevenwilliams2013 says: Dec 29, 2013 5:16 PM

    C’mon give the guy more than one season.

  11. wilddeuce03 says: Dec 29, 2013 5:16 PM

    No, you can name lack of talent as a reason, QB, RB, and WR. Hoyer looked promising but after that ACL tear we were left with Weeden and Campbell. Gordon is legit but other than him there’s nothing. And while the trade of Trent worked, we had no one to give us any running game. Not to mention the right side of the line has been horrible. No coach should be fired after one season. Especially when you go through three different QBs!!!

  12. ballboy48 says: Dec 29, 2013 5:18 PM

    I’d like to see him stay, but you have to win more games. The QB situation is kind of bleak, but I think they will try to bring Shanahan to Cleveland, along with Cousins, if Washington lets him go. It seems drastic, but it’s not out of reality.

  13. mianfr says: Dec 29, 2013 5:18 PM

    He’s a fine coach and he wants to coach there. Mistake to let him go now. This team isn’t that good, but they’re pretty close to being there. This is not the time to panic and rebuild wholesale.

  14. baller2 says: Dec 29, 2013 5:18 PM

    And if you think our free agents want to stay you’re crazy. The players in the draft are going to pray every night they don’t get drafted by cleveland. They way this organization is being run now is embarrassing

  15. chut26 says: Dec 29, 2013 5:19 PM

    They need someone else to lead them to another 3 win season. What a crap hole of a franchise…

  16. superdawg1967 says: Dec 29, 2013 5:25 PM

    Get a franchise quarterback and the losing will stop.Keep changing your coaching staff and you will always be a loser.Just look at the Bengals,enough said.

  17. rowdymon says: Dec 29, 2013 5:26 PM

    I thought our new owner talked about stability with the coaching staff as being the key to winning. Chud did a decent job in his first year. I don’t get this at all.

  18. hyprcaffeinated says: Dec 29, 2013 5:28 PM

    The good news for Chud – the Redskins are hiring.

  19. 1pantherfan07 says: Dec 29, 2013 5:29 PM

    Come back to Carolina I like Shula but his offence take for ever to get going

  20. couldntthinkofaname says: Dec 29, 2013 5:29 PM

    Throwing this out there…. I don’t think Chud should go after only one year. Just ridiculous. But I’m wondering if they’re thinking of just promoting Ray Horton if they fire Chud.

  21. csbanter says: Dec 29, 2013 5:30 PM

    Getting a quality QB will be beginning of stability for the Browns. Johnny Manziel puts this team on the map immediately. Johnny football to Josh Gordon, sickdiculous

  22. drs76109 says: Dec 29, 2013 5:32 PM

    Nice Banner pout bc the Eagles beat him to the Chipper.

    So you get what you pay for.

  23. omegalh says: Dec 29, 2013 5:34 PM

    Why did you hire him then? If your coach is one and done. The GM should go too.

  24. pj1983a says: Dec 29, 2013 5:36 PM

    Fire Chud and promote Ray Horton. You’ll maintain some continuity and prevent Horton from leaving for a head coaching job somewhere else.

  25. MichaelEdits says: Dec 29, 2013 5:41 PM

    The Carolina Panthers got Derek Anderson from the Browns and sent them Rob Chudzinski. In Charlotte we call that a win.

  26. bunkerhillbob says: Dec 29, 2013 5:41 PM

    Oh, well; they almost thought they were getting pretty good, but, alas, it’s still a mountain to climb.

  27. pv1960 says: Dec 29, 2013 5:41 PM

    Joe Banner will penny pinch.

  28. primenumber19 says: Dec 29, 2013 5:52 PM

    Bring back mangini, he never should have been fired

  29. britishraven says: Dec 29, 2013 5:54 PM

    Has Paul Kruger even got a sack this year?

  30. djlexluger says: Dec 29, 2013 5:57 PM

    No need to he’s already been fired

  31. bigbensucks says: Dec 29, 2013 6:01 PM

    Firing Chud after one season is crazy. Look at the mess left by Holmgren last year. Look at the injuries. No QB, No running back, Bess and Little can’t catch, McGahee could not run and so on……….Give Chud the missing pieces needed and see what he can do. Why start over again?

    Get rid of Lombardi and Banner first!
