    And in other news, Ron Borges continues to call Clark Hunt "Clint" for the second straight story.

    Wait a second. Wasn't the first story the Browns wanted an answer yesterday? Now it's by today?

    I'm guessing Borges' story tomorrow will be "The Browns want an answer by the end of the day, and this time they really mean it.":)

    I said AS MUCH in another post. I suppose lombardi has more street cred then me. :D

    Very bizarre behavior indeed.

    Wow, the way the Browns have gone about their business is very strange, IMO. Weird behavior.

    They may have got the impression that SP isnt serious about taking the job and want an answer so they can move on. To me it sounds like he's not taking it.

    Re: Borges/Guregian: Browns tell Pioli to take it or leave it by today

    As I wrote somewhere else that tactic works on a kid coming out of college who might be going to another interview but not at this level of upper management. It's the hallmark of a poorly run organization and one he might want to avoid......Pioli is not stringing them along so it seems to be a way to show who's in change....or will be/

    Re: Borges/Guregian: Browns tell Pioli to take it or leave it by today

    I'm sick to death of the Herald:

    Report: Pioli not obliged to answer today - BostonHerald.com

    I like how Guregian skirts accountability, referencing the article with her name stamped upon it as some report in the Herald's sports pages. She and Tomase are the anti-Reiss.

    I also wonder if it is these same "sources familiar with the negotiation" who have bestowed upon only her the exclusive knowledge that the Browns definitively want Mangini as their next HC.

    Gotta love the Herald citing an outside report that its own report is wrong.

    Why anyone continues to regard that paper as a credible source of information is beyond me. It's been a piece of rubbish for decades.

    Re: Borges/Guregian: Browns tell Pioli to take it or leave it by today [Update: CPD:

    Cleveland Browns Blog Archive McKay interview postponed

    >>>>>>A source familiar with the negotiations told the Herald that Pioli met with Lerner Wednesday in New York. A source told the Herald that Pioli's demands in his counter-offer were so high that some within the Browns' organization felt he didn't want to leave the Patriots.
    ……..
    Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz, whom the Herald reported would be Pioli's top choice for Browns coach, supported that idea in a press conference Wednesday at the Outback Bowl.
    "We're good friends. I've got tremendous respect for Scott as a football guy," Ferentz said. "He's just a tremendous person. I caution everybody: Don't try to predict what Scott is going to do, either. He's got a great job right where he's at."<<<<<

    There you go. He likes where he is at now and if you want him, you're going to have to overpay to get him to consider moving. Makes perfect sense to me. SP is in the driver's seat.
