Wow. What a week!
I've been around for a while in rugby league now so rarely does anything surprise me anymore. But I did get a shock when Browny pulled me and Tim Glasby aside on Monday arvo and dropped the news he wouldn't be coaching here at the Knights beyond the end of the season.
It's not really my job to comment but usually in these situations, things can turn a bit ugly. The fact that it feels like it is all pretty healthy here the way it's gone down is a testament to Browny and Phil Gardner.
Browny has handled the whole thing unbelievably well. It's not often something like this happens and its almost like nothing has happened and that's a credit to Browny's character and Phil's leadership.
Browny and Phil spoke to the playing group on Wednesday before training to explain everything.
I guess my job as captain now is basically to get all the boys focused on the challenge in front of us and that is the game on Saturday and beating an equally desperate Wests Tigers side.
I look at it as us wanting the fairytale finish to the season for ourselves, the coach and the club and I can guarantee no-one here believes it is beyond us.
But we can only deal with what we can control and that is winning our remaining three games and seeing where that leaves us.
I'll probably talk more about Browny down the track but as a coach, I guess the biggest personal accolade I can give him is he has made me a more complete player.
I've known him for longer than many people might think. I first met him back in 2015 when he came into Origin camp as an assistant.
Assistant coaches in those sort of environments - you are just a bit of a dude without the pressure of the main job and we got along really good during that series.
We exchanged texts there for a while even after the series was over and I knew he was a good guy.
So when the Roosters stuff with Copper Cronk came up and I was having a bit of a look around elsewhere, his name came up on my phone asking if I'd give him a ring.
The fact that I knew him and had spent a bit of time with him previously obviously helped so I came up for a chat and yeah, the rest has obviously been well documented.
I've had a really good relationship with Browny. He entrusted me with the captaincy which I think has brought the best out of me leadership-wise and I've said it plenty of times already over the past 18 months, he has really helped me with my halfback play.
Every coach has strengths and weaknesses and one of the things Browny is brilliant at is his halfback play and teaching the art of controlling the tempo of games.

For me, it's been a real blessing to have that relationship for a couple of years because I have no doubt I'm a better allround player because of his input.
But there is still some work to be done before it comes to an end.
For us against the Tigers at Campbelltown, it's about staying free and having fun and enjoying the moment and building on the momentum we created against the Cowboys last weekend.

Like I said, we are looking at it as a way to create a bit of a fairytale finish to the season and I don't think it's a negative way to look at it.
The finals are still potentially within reach and it's up to us to give ourselves and the fans every chance of getting there and being a part of those big end of season games where anything can happen.
Despite everything that has gone down this week, Browny seems really clear about his focus on the game and making sure the preparation is spot on. So, as captain, all I am worrying about is getting a result on Saturday.
If we can create the fairytale finish for ourselves and Browny, that would be great. Rest assured we'll be doing everything possible.
