Jimmy Haslam won't 'blow things up' if Browns have losing record

BEREA, Ohio -- Jimmy Haslam said that the Cleveland Browns' win-loss record in 2015 will not affect the future of coach Mike Pettine and general manager Ray Farmer.

"We're not going to blow things up," Haslam said Saturday.

Haslam called Pettine and Farmer quality people, smart and hard-working. The statement is significant given Haslam replaced coach Rob Chudzinski and GM Mike Lombardi after one season.

Pettine went 7-9 last season -- a three-win improvement from 2013 year for the Browns -- in his first year as coach.
