Browns need Joe Haden to be a leader

14

(ESPN) ... The last thing the Browns needed at their last public practice was Haden getting kicked out of practice. He shouldn't be dragging a teammate to the ground. His focus should be on picking up this team. This is a difficult time for the Cleveland defense. Outside linebacker Chris Gocong is out for the season, defensive tackle Phil Taylor is expected to miss at least the first six games and outside linebacker Scott Fujita faces a three-game suspension from the NFL for his part in the Saints' bounty scandal. Wide receiver/returner Josh Cribbs tried to downplay the incident. "It’s nothing," he said. "It’s like players getting into fights in practice. You fight in practice then in locker room you laugh and joke and singing songs together." This is more than "nothing." It's troublesome to see Haden exchanging heated words with coach Pat Shumur on the practice field. Have you heard of Ray Lewis or James Harrison doing this? Or even D'Qwell Jackson, for that matter? This exchange definitely doesn't help Shurmur, whose future is already uncertain with the change of ownership.... Ok, yes I gagged a little bit too when they compared two of the biggest assholes in the NFL with Joe Haden (I mean are you f_kng kidding me?...). But I thought the article was interesting food for thought nonetheless.

To own such a storied franchise as the Cleveland Browns, with its rich tradition and history, is a dream come true. We are committed to keeping the team in Cleveland and seeing it get back to the elite of the NFL -- something all Browns fans want and deserve.

(ESPN piece) I just think this has a nice ring to it. Sounds to me like this guy is all in. Also - suck it, Pittsburgh.

Cleveland Browns need to say goodbye to Colt McCoy

25

(from Bud Shaw, The Plain Dealer) The old saying about the backup QB being the most popular guy in a losing football town might be even more true if he's last year's starter, stood up to the hardest of knocks, and has shown a toughness about him that fits the city's self-image. It's especially true if the perception exists that last year's tough, likeable boy-next-door No. 1 quarterback had no substantial help and is now paying the price for it. That's why Colt McCoy can't be part of the Browns' 2012 plans. Sorry. Doesn't matter if he comes cheaply or even willingly. Doesn't matter if he's a good teammate or a capable Plan B in case of injury. Can't happen. Keeping McCoy around muddles the bold move made in drafting Oklahoma State quarterback Brandon Weeden in the first round. The Browns can't be expected to win immediately with Weeden under center in the West Coast offense, particularly since he's unaccustomed to both -- being under center and the WCO. The last thing Weeden needs is dealing with McCoy's incumbency in a sentimental football city housing convincing arguments claiming he never really got a chance.... (follows up with various other points making the case that the Browns need to let McCoy go...)
