Say what you will about the talent on the roster. Say what you will about bad drafts and tough-luck injuries. But could the bigger problem be the fact that the Browns don’t hire coaches with any real head coaching experience? Mike Pettine is just the latest example, but ever since the Browns returned to Cleveland, a veteran coach has been hard to find.

So when you wonder why our team doesn’t understand clock management or how to make adjustments at half time, remember that it’s not all on the players. You have to have coaches that know what they are doing because they have been there before. This team cannot afford to give some coordinator or position coach a chance at being a head coach. This team needs someone that when they talk about building a winning culture and a professional team, they can say it from a position of experience, not just aspiration.

So, let’s take a stroll down memory lane to prove that inexperience has been a soul crushing source of fuel at the Factory of Sadness since 1999.
