Thought of the Day: Eric Mangini
By James Walker
We have another interesting "Thought of the Day" in the AFC North blog. This week's topic is on the future of one of the division's head coaches.
Should Cleveland Browns president Mike Holmgren retain coach Eric Mangini or make a change in 2011? At 5-7, the final month of the season will be huge for Mangini, who needs to continue winning games to pad his résumé. The Browns will travel to play the Buffalo Bills (2-10) on Sunday.
Cleveland continues to play hard for Mangini and is 4-2 in its last six games. The Browns don't have nearly the same talent as other teams in the division but remain competitive and tough to beat on a weekly basis. Is that enough to bring Mangini back next year?
On the flip side, Mangini is 10-18 in his two seasons in Cleveland. There also are philosophical differences in the way Mangini and Holmgren prefer to run their teams. Therefore, is it time for Holmgren to hire his own head coach?
Share your "Thought of the Day" comments on Mangini's future with the Browns below. Or you can also send them to our division inbox and AFC North Twitter page. We will run the best responses throughout the week.
