Flugel Posted November 24, 2008 Report Share Posted November 24, 2008 Folks, If we're gonna keep the face of the Cleveland Browns Dumb and Dumber - why not hire Joe The Plumber to replace RAC. He'd be perfect because he's not REALLY a certified Plumber. He just has a Hell of an imagination which is what this offense has lacked. On second thought, something was far fetched about replacing a SMART QB with a DUMB QB today so our completion percentages went from 50% (bad) to 37% (piss poor). YAY! WHO is going to be doing the hiring of the NEXT Head Coach? AND, are they going to get him BETTER players with BETTER character? If not, sell this freakin franchise to someone that CARES. I miss Clay Matthews, Mike Johnson, Eddie Johnson, Frank Minnifield, Hanford Dixon, Thane Gash and Chip Banks. I even miss Candle-crack Cousineau. These guys all had character. This team has mixed reviews because some see talent - some don't. I think this team lacks CHARACTER. No behind doors meetings - NOBODY stepping up - they all just want their paychecks and all is well. You know what - that AIN'T just the coach - it's the person bringing their asses here and overpaying every DAMN one of them. Andra Davis isn't ANY better of a tackler today than he was the day Jamal Lewis ran right through him like he was Casper the friendly ghost for 500 rushing yards in 2 games. Davis is the SAME guy and Savage gave him a raise which says "this is what exactly I'm looking for" to the younger guys. Message received so somebody like D'Qwell prolly sets the bar at Davis and we see how it's turning out. CHARACTER is what is turning Edwards and Winslow into DIVAS instead of WEAPONS on Sunday. If they NEED rah rah for motivation - we're wasting double digit millions on the WRONG people. Score FREAKIN Touchdowns instead of dropping important passes when we NEED you most. Winslow has LOST 2-3 steps since the kid you saw giving Ohio State fits a lifetime ago. The reason? 3 knee surgeries and couple staff infections so he's NOT the same kid. He's easy to cover now which is why he gets busted for offensive interference every week. The LAST asset he had was GREAT hands but he's dropping too many passes now too. This team isn't NEARLY as talented as some of our fans think they are. If we combined with the Steelers, the ONLY guys that could start are Joe Thomas, Eric Steinbach, Josh Cribbs and does Shaun Rogers have as many Pro Bowls as his best friend Casey Hampton (they could split)? MAYBE Eric Wright but that's a stretch at this point. So HOW are we measuring up to what is supposed to be our benchmark? We're getting clobbered in the front office folks. We don't have a guy like Pollyneedsahaircut or a guy like Hines End. We just don't and we continue to accept that and blame our Head Coach whether it's 1999, 2004 or 2008. We won't beat Pitt this year because we don't have the talent OR character OR coaches. It's all about who does the hiring. Bill Cowher isn't going to tolerate LBers that are scared to tackle people so I can foresee some turbulence with him and Opie if he keeps whiffing so badly on the LBers. LBers guys are the heartbeat of a 3-4 and our's currently has heart disease. They're just no good enough. We've seen good enough via the guys mentioned above. Josh Cribbs has CHARACTER. Donte Stallworth cashes paychecks. Shaun Rogers has CHARACTER. Corey Williams cashes paychecks. Mike Johnson HAD CHARACTER. Andra Davis cashes paychecks. Know the difference because you better believe Cowher will. - Tom F. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
