Browns | Players remain behind Eric Mangini

Cleveland Browns players said they are behind head coach Eric Mangini and hope that he returns in 2011, according to the Akron Beacon Journal. "We're not far (away)," WR Joshua Cribbs said. "We are playing for an offensive-minded coach. Holmgren is here, his essence is here, he's making changes. Coach Mangini has done a lot in the defensive scheme. I think (Holmgren) can allow himself to keep Mangini and still be effective. That's two great football minds there." LB David Bowens added the players have Mangini's back. "We always have his back,'' Bowens said. "It's not up to us who stays and who goes. It's out of our pay grade. We love Eric to death. Unfortunately, sometimes the coach gets all the blame."
