Born in NYC, moved to Cleveland when I was 6 y.o., have been, and always will be, a Cleveland sports fan for life, and proud to be a Browns fan!

My girlfriend is a Saints fan, but nobody's perfect.

We "co-exisist" knowing we very rarely face each other on the field. But we show respect to them and vica versa (heck, she bought my Browns jersey for me for Christmas).

We live in Dayton, Ohio, but we both are die hard football fans and can't wait till the season starts.

Two kids (one together, the other from another marriage) and we are very much in love.

Mid Season Worst Players 2010

4

Despite the Jag loss I had to put up something to put into perspective how well this team is doing despite the record. Other than Jaek Delohmme, there are no other Cleveland Browns around this list of the worst players so far this season. This is both good news and shows we could have far worse problems than we do right now. It doesn't take away from the loss and the glaring questions needed to be addressed as a team, but I do have to look at this as a good sign of how far this team has turned it around.
