    Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that Steelers minority owner Jim Haslam could take over the Browns as soon as Week 1 of this year. The impending sale seems strange when you consider Haslam’s ties to one of the Browns division rivals, but I’m sure they’re all for an owner that will prioritize results. A new ownership change would likely have a huge impact on the organizations front office and more specifically president Mike Holmgren. Former Eagles president Joe Banner is part of the group that’s in the process of purchasing the team, so it’s not hard to connect the dots here and suggest that Holmgren could be relieved of his duties with the team in favor of Banner. GM Tom Heckert has ties to Banner from his time with the Eagles, so he at least stands a sporting chance of surviving such a transition.

    Holmgren has always been overrated imo.

    Seems like Banner may be bound for the job..any Eagles fan thoughts on him? I'm not familiar.

    Holmgren was a bit overrated but was a step in the right direction. At least he hired Heckert, who knows if he even comes without Holmgren there
