This seems like a silly question to ask since the Dallas Cowboys have been winning at least 8 games and seem to be keeping most of their front office and coaching staff intact. But think about it this way, the ownership in Cleveland is trying to find the winning combination and is passionate enough to try find that, even if it means changing coaches and general managers as often as some people cycle out underwear.
The Browns could easily be one or two solid moves away from hitting a winning combination, but at the same time, you could almost say that about the Cowboys. But in reality, the Cowboys have probably made one or two moves to keep themselves from falling into the abyss. The Cowboys almost feel like a team who is on the brink of getting worse, than getting better. Some of that probably has to do with all the salary cap trouble they are in.
The Browns on the other hand are not in any salary cap trouble, and could possibly find the right quarterback and combination to start winning. I doubt the Cowboys are going to get worse this coming season, and I doubt the Browns are going to jump up and win 10 or 12 games this season either. But if you take a step back and look at both teams realistically, the Browns look to be in better shape as is than the Cowboys do. Their ownership just needs to have more patience to let things happen and the Cowboys need Jerry to be less patient and be willing to become cut throat.
But as anyone in Dallas will quickly tell you, they don’t expect the Cowboys to be anything but mediocre for the rest of Jerry’s tenure as owner and general manager. Which is another reason I firmly believe the Browns are closer to winning than the Cowboys, their Owner knows his place and will hire a general manager to run day to day football operations. While Jerry tries to do it all.
