And then there was one.

After the Detroit Lions hired Jim Caldwell Tuesday, and the Minnesota Vikings reportedly snagged Mike Zimmer Wednesday, that leaves one NFL franchise still looking for a head coach.

Why, the Cleveland Browns, of course.

Even at normal times the Brownies are the butt of more barbs than any other NFL team. They're such easy marks.

Now this. Five franchises -- Minnesota, Washington, Tampa Bay, Detroit and Tennessee -- have fired head coaches and hired their replacements since the Browns dismissed Rob Chudzinski on Dec. 29, after just one season in charge.

What are they waiting for now, you and half of Ohio asks?
