If you’re tired of the Jason La Canfora hate (and I’d understand it), do yourself a favor and just exit out of this article. Check out today’s Chow instead.
After the Browns announced the firing of five assistant coaches on Tuesday (and I’d expect some, if not all, of the replacements to be named very soon), Jason La Canfora took to Twitter so he could deliver some more insults at the expense of the Browns. Remember: this isn’t the type of thing you’ll see a Jay Glazer, Ian Rapoport, or Chris Mortenson do.
Browns announce 5 more coaches gone. Will end up having more turnover than some teams that changed head coaches. But, hey, continuity!— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) January 10, 2017
And the Browns wonder why so many employees went away scoffing at their super secret staff meeting in Nov w/owners saying no big changes— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) January 10, 2017
When La Canfora actually reports something, it’s hard to dismiss it completely. He’s the “inside the NFL” guy for one of the major football networks, so deep down, there has to be some merit to even the occasional story he puts out, right? It’s getting harder to even find something to justify him as a credible reporter, though. He’s already been exposed for his flat-out bashing vs. reporting of the Browns, and now he’s misfired big time on one of the league’s biggest coaching vacancies.
We let Rapoport have it a few years ago when he led everyone to believe that Chip Kelly was coming to the Browns. Now, La Canfora did the same to Buffalo Bills fans. These tweets came on January 1st and 2nd:

The Bills, after finalizing Anthony Lynn as their head coach, will make a push for Gus Bradley as their defensive coordinator— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) January 2, 2017
Sounds all well-and-good, right? Except for this...
IT’S OFFICIAL. We’ve agreed with Sean McDermott to become head coach of the Buffalo Bills!— Buffalo Bills (@buffalobills) January 11, 2017

Good going, Jason. I’ll remember to continue not taking your word for things.
