January 11, 2016

Blair Walsh. The new face of “Miss”ery 1.I know most people think that Marvin Lewis should be fired because of what happened on Saturday night but I wouldn’t fire him for that.

I’m Just Sayin: The Browns Continue to Set the Bar for Stupidity.

January 7, 2016

Paul DePodesta will bring a more analytical approach to the Cleveland Browns.  The Cleveland Browns continue to set the bar high when it comes to  stupid decisions.
