On Savage's Firing

-- Savage, meanwhile, remains a hot topic despite having departed nearly a month ago. We've been told that Savage was directly involved or responsible for no less that five strikingly unprofessional issues. A particularly alarming suggestion is that Savage relayed information to the head coach on various topics on "behalf" of the team owner... but which did not actually come from him.

-- In talking to no less than a dozen front-office types this past week, each stated the Browns organization was in disarray, filled with mistrust and ego-driven persons working on their own agendas. Those we talked to noted that they believe Savage will face a difficult challenge in holding a significant front office role again, outside of possibly returning to the Baltimore Ravens.

Quotes are from the Orange & Brown Report.

There's been much discussion on the reasons for Savage being fired, but every indication from every source seems to point in one direction: Savage was a borderline sociopath. Of course, that's likely an overstatement, but it accurately dramatizes the information that's surfaced to date.

Savage was not fired for poor personnel moves (in fact indications are that Lerner was pleased with Savage's moves, part of the reason he was given such leeway.) He was not fired because of the team's record. He was not fired prematurely.

Savage was fired because the FO was in chaos, the players were revolting, and he apparently offered no means of remedy.

During his tenure, I was always a big fan. I loved most of his moves, and genuinely believe he had a workable plan to building a winner. He just failed in execution. He was the anti-Butch, who executed well but had no plan for building a sustainable winner. They were both given too much power. They both failed.
