      God messed up.  After missing Priest Holmes and Jamal Lewis back to back, god thought the Pats should now miss Terrell Davis!  Poor Butch!  Yet another former Dallas assistant fails.  Ernie Zampese, Norv Turner, Dave Wannstedt, set another place at the table!!!

      Butch Davis resigns as Browns coach

      By TOM WITHERS, AP Sports Writer

      CLEVELAND (AP) -- Beleaguered Cleveland Browns coach Butch Davis
      resigned Tuesday, leaving a last-place team with five games left in
      the season.

      The Browns (3-8) lost their fifth straight game on Sunday, 58-48 at
      Cincinnati, and are in fourth place in the AFC North. The team went
      24-36 and made the playoffs just once in Davis' four seasons as head
      coach.

      Davis left with three years remaining on a contract worth about $12
      million.

      Browns president John Collins was to speak about the move at an
      afternoon news conference, team spokeswoman Lisa Levine said.

      Offensive coordinator Terry Robiskie or defensive coordinator Dave
      Campo is expected to take over as interim coach for the Browns, who
      host the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots on Sunday.

      Pressure had been mounting on Davis for weeks as the Browns' season
      crumbled with a score of injuries to key players and heartbreaking
      losses.

      Amid speculation last week that Davis was about to be fired, Collins
      said the coach would remain in place for the rest of the season --
      unless he resigned.

      Davis, who helped restore the University of Miami's program before
      joining the Browns in 2001, could be a candidate for the job opening
      at Florida.
