A familiar face has started to get some buzz as a potential candidate for the Browns' head coaching job. Former Browns offensive coordinator and, most recently, Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians told the Canton Repository there’s only one job he would come out of retirement for. You know the one he’s talking about.
That’s the first topic that Mary Kay Cabot and Dan Labbe got into in our latest edition of the Orange and Brown Talk podcast presented by Sibling Revelry Brewing.
The Browns fired head coach Hue Jackson and offensive coordinator Todd Haley on Monday. That means it’s time for another coaching search.
Mary Kay Cabot and Dan Labbe talked about the firings and what’s next for the Browns in the latest edition of the Orange and Brown Talk podcast, presented by Sibling Revelry Brewing.
Among the other topics discussed:
The Browns lost to the Steelers on Sunday, 33-18. They are 2-5-1 now on the season and rumors swirled early Sunday morning about the fate of offensive coordinator Todd Haley.
Mary Kay Cabot and Dan Labbe talked about that in their postgame Orange and Brown Talk Podcast on Sunday from Pittsburgh.
They also discussed:
The Browns are preparing for the Steelers on Sunday, and things are beginning to swirl towards a typical late-season collapse. But what if they don't?
A win Sunday could help ease some tension.
Mary Kay Cabot and I talked all about that in our latest podcast. We got into the Todd Haley-Hue Jackson situation and looked ahead to Sunday. We also discussed:
The Browns lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, 26-23, in overtime. It drops them to 2-4-1 on the season.
The offense struggled again, especially early when they managed just 74 first-half yards. They were unable to take advantage of the four turnovers forced by the defense.
Mary Kay Cabot and Dan Labbe talked about the game on Sunday night from Tampa. We discussed:
The Browns are off to face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this weekend. It could be a shootout -- at least if Baker Mayfield can overcome a thinning wide receiving corps to keep up with Tampa's explosive offense.
Mary Kay Cabot and Dan Labbe talked about that on the Thursday before the game. They also discussed:
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The Browns are 2-3-1 after they couldn't measure up Sunday against one of the best teams in the league and absorbed a 38-14 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers at FirstEnergy Stadium.

The Browns are 1-2-1 after four games, but fans seem more hopeful than they have been in a while? Why? The guy who wears No. 6.
Mary Kay Cabot and Dan Labbe talked about that in this edition of the Orange and Brown Talk podcast, presented by Sibling Revelry Brewery.
Then we went to Twitter and took questions about:
Once the Baker Mayfield train started rolling on Thursday night, there was no turning back for the Browns. So it was no surprise when head coach Hue Jackson named Mayfield his starting quarterback on Monday.
So, with the benefit of hindsight, did the Browns handle their quarterback situation correctly?
In this edition of the Orange and Brown Podcast. sponsored by Sibling Revelry Brewing, Mary Kay Cabot and I talk about that, plus:
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The Baker Mayfield Era began Thursday night at FirstEnergy Stadium as the Browns came from behind and won an NFL game for the first time since December of 2016, knocking off the New York Jets 21-17.
