Scapegoats ‘r us: Even more firings in Browns town

I learned about this from Dawgs by Nature. ESPN has more.

The spin is “Ray Farmer is super awesome, and we needed to fire Joe Banner and Mike Lombardi.” The reality is that Lombardi/Banner had a C+ draft, a bunch of expensive moves in free agency that failed, fired the coach (which I think Haslam approved, but maybe not), and just generally stunk up the place. The one unqualified success of the regime was trading Trent Richardson for a first round pick, which only turned out to be brilliant in retrospect.

EDIT: Football Outsiders has by far the funniest take on this so far.
