Jimmy Haslam: "No Changes" Coming During Bye for Browns

New, comments
Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

After the Cleveland Browns' 30-9 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers and a bye week forthcoming, many fans wondered if team owner Jimmy Haslam would shake things up with the team's record now a 2-8. When the Cleveland media got to see Haslam very briefly in Pittsburgh after the game, someone got to ask whether the organization would make any changes during the bye week.

No changes? At the very least, hopefully that is in relation to the people directly under Haslam, because head coach Mike Pettine certainly needs to consider making a change at defensive coordinator where Jim O'Neil's unit has regressed significantly in year number two.

After the game, Pettine was also asked about whether he's talked with Haslam. He indicated that the two had a standard "midseason 1-on-1 meeting" this past week, but that job security for the rest of the season did not come up. Also, keep in mind that before the season started, Haslam firmly told the media that he was not going to blow things up at the end of the year. He made that comment before he knew the team would be 2-8 with one of the worst defenses in the NFL, though.
