The Cleveland Browns are set to make the playoffs for the first time since 2002. Will Burge explains why taking them lightly is not in their potential opponents’ best interest.
Who said training camps weren’t exciting? First it’s Frye, then it’s Quinn, and now we’re getting ready for Derek Anderson to lead the Browns into the 2007 season. Can Romeo Crennel just make a decision already? Actually, no, he can’t. And I’ll tell you why.
Well, it’s that time of year again. The annual NFL Draft will be upon us soon, and fans like us waste no time speculating who the first overall pick will be, who the Browns will select, and what the team’s biggest needs are. These debates have been going on since the inception of the draft in 1936, and this year is no exception.
Well once again the Browns have found a way to get screwed over for this season. Me, being a big Browns fan was ecstatic for the new season. We brought in playmakers like Gary Baxter and Rueben Droughns. I love the way Romeo Crennel is molding the team in his image. Everything was looking up for the Browns, until a few days ago. I didn’t think we could’ve messed up another draft after five years of terrible picks. Yet Kellen Winslow has proven me wrong, once again.
For the last few years I’ve been waiting for a savior, a savoir to pull the Browns out of their 41-year drought of not making it to an NFL Championship. But the savior I am hoping for probably won’t come soon, due to the quality of our former draft picks, which leads me to why the Browns have a below-par foundation of a team.
