Reader Brad responds to Mike Holmgren is Going Crazy: Says he Wouldn't Mind Coaching Cleveland Browns. He says guys like Holmgren are made for teams like the Browns because of the challenge involved in turning a loser into a winner.
Science says you must be one-half raving loon to survive as a Browns fan.
"All the negative things pointed out in the article about the Browns are exactly what makes them appealing to some of these guys like Holmgren. It's the challenge, coupled with an owner who is willing to turn over the reigns. The 'fantasy football' version of this is franchise mode in Madden. It's much more interesting to take the worst franchises and turn them into winners."
