Well, yeah, but I didn't want to pile on the browns =P

And the cards and jets are worse at QB than the browns.


Oh it's ok, the most Browns fans who aren't stupid realize what's up. We know that we need a QB.

For all the dread about two weeks of nothing but Har-Bowl and Ray Lewis talk the only thing I've seen have been stories about how there will be nothing but Har-Bowl talk and Ray Lewis felating.

I've yet to see an actual piece depicting what people said we'd have nothing but of. Just people talking about how we'd have nothing but Har-Bowl talk and people going "How come no one brings up the murders?" when talking about Ray Lewis' media treatment.

Fining a player for wearing his socks too low? What's next...having a dirty uniform after half time?

The "angry" Browns fans still talk about the murders with Lewis. I think that his treatment in the media is what it is, because he has "appeared" (and I use " because I'm not in baltimore, so I can't say on a consistent basis) to be a completely changed man.

Though I have to say, finding out last night on ESPN that Lewis' first NFL sack was against Harbaugh West was pretty funny.

The Lewis thing is that no one is talking about him that I've seen except the people talking about him not having the murders talked about. So the only thing I've seen talked about is the murders, it is a weird cycle. I'm sure it'll change after this weekend though,

Ok, so are Phoenix fans allowed to commiserate with Cleveland fans for a while?

Football: The Cardinals suck, have no QB or O-Line, RBs made out of peanut brittle, just fired their coach and chased away their good D-coordinator (the defense being the lone bright spot of the team), and won a couple games they should have lost if they wanted to get one of the two "can't miss" LTs in the coming draft.

Hoops: The Suns are a complete dysfunctional mess - just fired their coach midseason, chased off their top two assistants (one of which is only one of the top 3 most beloved basketball players ever in this city) to promote a guy that everyone here seems to think was a "mole" brought in at the start of the season, have no stars (at all) - only a huge pile of role-players, a cheap-ass (possibly bankrupt) owner, a history of horrid draft picks, and the whole city's basically turned against them (well, the GM and whatever Lon Babby is, at least).

Baseball: The D-backs were decent with some good players, a couple stars, and good young arms just breaking in. Now they've made two trades, both of which have been completely shredded by the national media - first getting rid of Bauer for "not much", and now they just traded J-Up for some spare parts. It's been so bad that they also got rid of a great defensive center fielder and nobody even said anything because that got drowned out by worse stuff.

Jonah Keri @ Grantland just wrote: "Instead, this is a team that traded multiple quality players to get two shortstops who both might not solve the problem, willingly took on two years and multiple millions for Heath Bell, ditched Trevor Bauer before we could find out what he could become, and traded their best player for no good reason."

Hockey: Hey - a bright spot (nevermind that whole "lockout" thingy)! Go Coyotes! :)

No. A bright spot does not happen in Cleveland.

Amused by the current meltdown in Lakerland. I can only hope that they continue this way and miss the playoffs. That would be golden.

But you gotta understand, I live in LA. The laker nation surpasses most fan bases in terms of being utterly annoying.

The Capitals new system is let up 4+ goals a game and score 1.

not true. there are bright spots in cleveland. THey are called coaches, or players. These bright spots are then crushed into oblivion by the whims of the front office, and men named Lerner, Gilbert, or Dolan.

The jury is still out on the Browns Front Office guy, but I'm pretty sure that will be part of Lombardi's job description. Crushing the Hope of the Fan base, one bone chilling blunder at a time.

The talent exodus from ESPN is continuing. Rachel Nichols has left for CNN/Turner.

Which sucks. She was one of the Female ESPN Reporters that I felt could hang with the men. I had wished that she would have ended up doing the Sunday Countdown stuff instead of Kolber. I can't stand Kolber.
