Sark was a quick hire, but who else was coming in here to run Shannahan’s offense? It was a tough decision but seemed like the right one to try to keep some sense of continuity with the offensive side of the ball!! Matt Ryan has seen more OCs than the Browns have seen QBs in the last 10 years (not really) but let’s think about it.

Malarkey(08-11) Koetter (12-14) Shannahan (15-16) Sark (17) ! Stability early on with Malarkey and a fairly simple offense(I know, I played in it!!) and Koetter ran some of the same stuff Malarkey did in his first year then had a drastic change after, team was bad tho!! Shanny had a rough first year as did Matt, totally new system, new verbiage, new voices and so on. Now we have Sark, running a system other than his own, learning all the nuances of calling plays (that aren’t his) in the NFL!! If we give this a little more time maybe it will work out!! Falcons were 7-5 before that run they went on last year!! Let’s take a deep breath, R-E-L-A-X and see what happens in the next 2-3 games!! If it is still reminiscent of hot garbage then we can all freak out together, I will lead the charge!!
