AUDIO Pettine & Farmer Gone: Now What?

The circus continues in Berea, and the Cleveland Browns are looking for a new General Manager and Head Coach.

The "Voice of the Browns" WKYC's Jim Donovan joined the Sam Bourquin Show on a "Black Monday" to talk about the feeling heading into FirstEnergy Stadium Sunday and what the feelings were from not only Donovan's perspective, but the fans' perspective as the Browns played another meaningless game in the month of January against the Steelers.

"It was an eerie feeling," Donovan said.

"Going into the stadium it was like going into Heinz Field, because everybody was wearing a black and gold Steelers shirt and waving their Terrible Towels."

 "Those are the fruits of being 3-13, that happens when you lose a lot, you lose control of the stadium."

Steve King from said he expected the firings of Farmer and Pettine to happen, but he says applauds owner Jimmy Haslam for doing what had to be done.

"You can't move forward until you clear the path and that's what he did."

AUDIO Donovan Talks Bernie, Browns Conundrum

With the news coming out recently regarding former Browns quarterback Bernie Kosar saying that he'd be willing to help the organization regain its footing as one of the league's more competitive franchises, many people have weighed in with their opinions on whether or not #19 would be welcomed back into the fold.

Sammy B caught up with the Voice of the Browns, WKYC Channel 3's own Jim Donovan to talk about Kosar reaching out to the Browns organization, with hopes of changing the culture.

"It's not the first time he said it," Donovan said. "Three owners since 1999 haven't taken Bernie up on his offer, but there's two sides two every story."

Jim says he does not know what role Kosar would like to pursue, whether it's team president, GM, or another role.


Jim Donovan said that one of the obvious things that's going on with the Browns this year, is the lack of talent and it came from some missed draft picks, especially in the first round.

"Guys like Erving, Manziel, Gilbert, those are all guys that should be playing and contributing," he said.
