The Cowher09 website currently has 9,420 signatures on a petition to Randy Lerner to hire Bill Cowher. What bothers me about this is that these Cowher lovers will actually believe they made it happen if the Browns do hire Cowher. This group handed out 500 signs in the muni - lot on Sunday - like the one pictured - and the petition they have going reads as follows:
To: The Cleveland Browns Organization / Randy Lerner
We, the undersigned fans, would like to express our passion. We are both passionately proud and passionately angry. We are especially angry with the current state of our team, in particular its coaching. We demand that you seriously consider bringing in retired head coach Bill Cowher to take over the Cleveland Browns starting with the 2009 season. We have followed the Cleveland Browns with undying loyalty through the good and the bad. Some of us are young children and some of us have been season ticket holders for decades. Although most of us are armchair quarterbacks, we are still the ones who fill the seats and foot your bills. Coach Cowher has the resume and passion to lead our team back to prominence. For the sake of Cleveland’s forever-loyal fans, consider this petition.
...where were these guys when the Browns hired Bud Carson over Bill Cowher in the early 90's?
