The Cleveland Browns travel to Pittsburgh to take on the Steelers in what could very well be Pat Shurmur’s last game as the Cleveland Browns head Coach, we all hope. Shurmur as an offensive play caller in the NFL has failed miserably. In the past four seasons Shurmur called plays that lead him to 18 wins and 46 losses, this includes his 2 years as the offensive coordinator with the Rams. It is obvious that Pat Shurmur is in way over his head as a head coach in the NFL. Not only doesn’t he have a clue how to win, he puts his player’s health in danger.
Shurmur was talking about playing Trent Richardson in the Steelers game to test his toughness, hasn’t he all ready done that this season? He took Richardson off the knee injury that required a surgical repair before the season started and over used him from the start of the season. He played the Browns 1st pick in the 2012 draft at least 2 weeks before he should have. Now with an ankle on the same leg being injured Shurmur talks about measuring his toughness in the NFL by playing T-Rich Sunday in Pittsburgh.
While Richardson has done well is short yardage situations and had some great break away runs and great passing yards, it has been clear he hasn’t ran the way people were used to seeing in the NFL. It is time to let the man heal. No one needs to see how tough T-rich is except Pat Shurmur. The quicker the Browns can end this season and fire Pat Shurmur the quicker the team can move on and complete the transition of the new ownership. Pat Shurmur isn’t capable of turning the Browns into a winning team. He is missing something upstairs that makes NFL head coaches great.
He would rick the health of his players in a game that is out of reach for what? The Browns should have gotten rid of Shurmur during the bye week and I’ll bet the team would have had more wins…..
