In light of the fact that the pair doesn't seem to have any problem bringing in nondescript 30-something former Jets, perhaps a little outcry from Browns fans is warranted on this one. If there is any chance that Jurevicious could play this year, it's not as though the team couldn't use a guy whose hands are actually NFL calliber. I'm not sitting here trying to argue that Jurevicious could have in any way contributed to the rebuilding effort. All I'm saying is that for a relatively small sum and a roster spot, the new coach and GM could've thrown the fans one bone and not ousted one of the few beloved players the team has left.
I know, I know . . . It's a crappy argument. You don't turn around a pathetic franchise by pandering to a desperate fanbase. I guess I'm just bitter because we hired a huge prick whose only moves thus far have been to bring in aging never-was players from a team that consistently underachieved. Let's not kid ourselves here: It's not like David Bowens and Abram Elam are really going to bring a championship attitude to the locker room. We didn't hire a coach from a successful franchise. He's not really doing us any favors by bringing in "his" guys.
Whatever, I tried to write about the Browns and now I'm nauseous and depressed. Wake me up in two years when the fans are revolting, Lerner is losing money hand over fist, and Mangini is begging to get fired.
