Just in case you were looking for more proof that the Browns are a rudderless ship: head coach Romeo Crennel, in the wake of consecutive implosive, demoralizing "shoulda won but didn't ... hey, it happens" losses, hinted that he might make a couple of lineup changes, presumably to give his team the best chance at victory, and to also send a clear message to all the quitters.

When pressed about his plans, Crennel was predictably vague:
"We talked about it over the weekend, and we had a meeting [Monday] morning, but I haven't had a chance to talk to the players about anything yet," he said. "I'm not divulging anything at this point."
Asked if he would classify them as major or minor changes, he laughed and said, "I would classify them as a secret right now."
So take heart, Browns faithful: Crennel has a plan, he's just not divulging the details. National security and whatnot.
The most obvious move would involve strategically placing Brandon McDonald as far from the playing field as possible, but with nobody behind him on the depth chart, that becomes problematic. Although, there is anecdotal evidence that the Browns' secondary wouldn't be any worse if they just played without a right cornerback.
