Cable will be fired. We all know that. It will be a typical move of Al Davis. The old man can't run the franchise! He is the second worst owner in the league behind Dan Snyder!
And I highly doubt Shanahan will come back. What if Gruden came back?
Mike Brown would ruin a franchise circles around Dan Snyder. There are only two things I will ever give credit to Mike Brown for.
1) Naming and keeping the name of our stadium "Paul Brown Stadium". Football is too commercialized, all about profit and very rarely about the fans or the sport. Refusing to sell the naming rights to the stadium to honor his father, the founder of 2 professional franchises and a Hall of Famer is classy.
2) Hiring, and sticking by Marvin Lewis. A lot of team would have fired him by now, but the reason for the teams lack of continuous success is Mike Brown's ownership, not Marvin's coaching. I think Mike realized that and has made a commitment to allow Marvin to finally put his stamp on this team, in hopes of enduring success.
