I am running out of reasons to follow this team, and am questioning why I put so much time, passion and loyalty into Cleveland Browns football. I have never really questioned my loyalty, at any point in time before. When the Browns were taken away from Cleveland I boycotted football until they came back, and now this.

I almost want to turn my loyalty over to tOSU football and follow the Browns less intently. True the Buckeye’s blow every big game they play in, but at least they give us a winner most of the time. At least they give us the thought that they can win any game they play in. Truth be told I have always been a Browns fan first, but that could slowly be changing.

I have three huge problems with the Browns right now that need to be taken care of quickly.

First. Brady Quinn. I’m fine with him getting off to a slow start, I’m fine with him struggling a bit, but the kid needs to throw the damn ball. He’s not going to have a wide open receiver every play, especially when the teams second receiver is Josh Cribbs. Brady will never be a good quarterback if he’s afraid to throw the ball. Its one thing to be safe but its another thing to be gun shy. Being safe means don’t throw the ball up for grabs in double coverage, being safe means don’t try to throw a left handed pass when your being sacked, hold on to the ball. Brady is gun shy and its killing the offense.

Second. Jamal Lewis. I’ve wanted him replaced since last year and nothing has changed. He’s done. I’m tired of watching him shuffle his feet like he’s a wiener dog. Is James Davis or Harrison the answer? I don’t know, but they cant be much worse, at least they have the chance of breaking a long run from time to time.

Third. St. Clair. Get this scrub out of the game. If he’s not getting called for a false start or holding he’s letting the defense run right past him. He alone is the biggest weakness this team has and something needs to be done about it. How many times can one man get beat before he is pulled out of the game? If he starts next week I will throw a hissy fit like a 10 year old girl….again.

All in all I refuse to give up on Brady or Mangini before they get a fair chance. Two games is not enough for me to throw in the towel. Hell I would love to give them 3 or 4 years. What do we have to lose? Another losing season. It will happen regardless of the coach or QB here in Cleveland. The only way we can become a winner is to stick with what we have. Starting over every 3 or 4 years doesn’t work, this is obvious, we’ve been trying that method since 99’.


  1. Mangini is ruining what was left of the Browns after Phil Savage got run out of town. No free agents want to play here, no draft picks are going to want to sign here and pretty soon some of the current players aren't going to want to play here.

    I'm starting to wonder if Mangini was hired by a temp agency to fill the spot until Bill Cowher can be talked into coming back for a truck load of money. Whatever he wants, Lerner better be willing to pay because the fans are done and the home games are going to be blacked out soon.

  2. Not the Bill Cowher talk again. If players hated Mangini so much why would Abe Elam, Eric Barton and the other 4 from the NYJ's come here. He runs a tight ship no doubt, but i think he needs time to turn Savages blunders around before we run him out of here.

  3. Some of those players (like Elam) were traded for so they had no choice. The others signed here as FA's because they knew they would get playing time. I believe we have all 5 New York players who liked Mangini.

    No free agents will want to sign here. Period. Take less money to play for a team that hasn't finished in last place year after year. We will be overpaying for any talent that we can get.

  4. Thats fine. You can't build a team through free agency, Phil Savage taught us that. You build good teams through the draft.

  5. Hey-you still have Bron. That was just painful to watch.

  6. Hey. Long time blogger first time comment-er(?). Hahaha. Was just wondering if anyone knows of any sites that list clubs that I can join, I've heard Clubbz.com, are there any others? JB

  7. dont advertise your junk on here. nobody cares.
