You want to talk about coaches dealt a poor hand, look no further than Herm and he pulled off a winning season as well. And those Chief teams had less talent than some Division II football teams.
And that 2007 Browns team was a total aberration. Anderson, Winslow and Edwards, all one hit wonders, blossomed in the same year and pretty much never to be heard from again. And Jamal Lewis came out of nowhere to have his best season since rushing for 2k back in the early 2000s.
Herm didn't have any favors due to Vermiel not drafting for the future.
I thought Herm was a great talent evaluator, but his coaching was below average. Like Romeo, he had very little, if any, developed talent when he took over. His draft picks were above average, but it took time to develop them. Time both didn't have.
