Hey everyone... if you are reading this blog, you are one more person than I thouht would be interested, so thanks!
I wanted to take a minute to ask everyone out there that loves football one simple question. Why do we as fans know better and more than our team's GM? In my opinion the Viking got it right yesterday with Farve. They are a strong team that needed a QB to be an elite team and they filled the gap. I don't care about Farve's wishy-washyness... it was a good deal for him and the Vikes.
I could write all day about everyone else's teams, so I will stick with the Cleveland Browns. We recently lost the services of Dante Stallworth (in my opinion not an elite WR). Marvin Harrison is sitting out there without a job. Meanwhile, we have two ROOKIES fighting for our #2 job. No, I didn't mistype that last statement, we have 2 ROOKIES working for the #2 WR position on our Cleveland Browns team. Now why aren't we making a play for Marvin Harrison? Not only could he provide a much needed possession reciever, he provides a relentless work ethic, leadership, and a SuperBowl ring. I have no idea how we thought we were going to get better by moving Kellen Winslow nd getting Robert Royal, but we can save that for another post. Needless to say, the Browns are going to be weak offensivly with this current lineup. When you look at the Cleveland Browns this year, don't you ask yourself how we were 10-6 two years ago? Last pre-season we were the darlings of the NFL. Now, we are back to "if it's Brown, flush it down."
I don't know what George K gets paid to do or where he is going with this train, but as a long time fan... it's hard to see the light at the end of this tunnel. I would be the first to sit down with him and show him how I did it on Madden Football 10. It takes money, guts, and some heavy thinking. This is a WIN NOW league and we aren't giving our team the best chance to win with this group. So pick a QB and give him some tools to win games so we can have some fun in Cleveland again. I'm tired of our only meaningful game being opening weekend.
