Cleveland Browns Management Style

One of the easiest ways to tell how things are going with an NFL team is to count how often coaches are turned over.

It’s time we start comparing the Obama Administration to the Cleveland Browns.

With flashes of greatness every now and then, but a predictably disastrous end, year after year after year, the Browns have been only consistent in replacing their head coaches.

Check out this graph from the beginning (to be fair, they’ve had new owners along the way).

18 Mike Pettine*

When the Browns fired Rob Chudzinski at the end of the 2013 season, after just one attempt, it appeared anyone thinking about taking his place would have to be pretty desperate.

Isn’t it about time Cleveland Browns fans stood up and said “enough” to the owners?

And today we learn that the disastrous Obamacare law, headed up by Kathleen Sebelius, is now her Waterloo.

That’s right, she’s resigning, or at least that’s what’s being reported.

And, is it not arguably still opening day?

Health care isn’t like a football season, it’s far more like a climate in the region, that lasts for centuries.

And who can argue that the health care climate is improving?

The whole idea behind the Affordable Care Act, was that it would be affordable, which it isn’t, caring, which it’s not, and would act, or in other words, work, which it isn’t.

Goodbye Mrs. Sebelius, your boss is the reason it failed,…but in this case, the people are so mad, they’ll allow you to shoulder some of the blame.

Obama and Sebelius
