08:09 AM ET 08.13 | Coaches generally see Twitter as a problem in waiting. Browns coach Pat Shurmur was miffed [Sunday] about a postgame tweet by Mohamed Massaquoi that contradicted Shurmur's announcement that Massaquoi suffered a concussion Friday night in Detroit. Shurmur actually seemed more ticked at the media for including Massaquoi's tweet in stories instead of taking him at his word. Massaquoi wasn't outside with the rest of the team during practice [Sunday] and is being treated for his concussion. "You know how I feel about tweets and twitters, No. 1," Shurmur said sharply. "I told you what happened and that's what happened. If you ask me a question about what happened in the game and I tell you the process, then that's how it happened."

Note to Coach Shurmer... this Twitter thing is bigger than you.

"It is better to be silent and let people think you are a fool than to go on Twitter and remove all doubt."

Why tweet?

Your so right Debbie. The whole twitter fad is just a bunch of narcisitic idiots searching for a stalker. Biggest waste of technology since the SDI program.

Schmur is one of the least personable NFL coaches and is not well received in Cleveland. Both Shurmur and the fat walrus Holmgren are out soon.

I get the feeling from a distance that little associated with Holmgren is well received in Cleveland right now...

So was The Hoodie when he was in Cleveland. Funny how things work out sometimes.

I think Twitter is a stupid waste of time. Of course, my credibility is undermined by the fact that I'm posting this statement on an internet bulletin board.

We are a highly erudite virtual community here.

Try the Jets thread to find lots of "sup's" and "yo' mamas."

<-------- Massaquoi is broken again, seems fragile on the field, might as well stick to Twittering.

August 13, 2012  11:15 AM ET

That's how to coach Shurmur, get more ticked at the media than the player contradicting your injury reports, NOT!

August 13, 2012  11:24 AM ET

Really, Coach, don't you know that you shouldn't take a guy with a concussion seriously?

"Are you OK?"
"Yeah, I'm OK."
"Can you go back in?"
"Yeah, I can go back in."
"What's your name?"
"Lady Gaga."

Dirty. Funny, it was brought up on local radio nobody remembers him headhunting as a younger player under Cowher. And it's sad he is a hometown boy.

Looking like another long year in Cleveland.

17 weeks is my guess. Short year for some teams, although an average year for Cleveland.
