he must not be reading his own paper then. is he still with the plain dealer?
believe me - all of the rave in cleveland is about antonio. he has even looked like the best player out there in virtually every preseason game. he's gonna be great this year (of course, 'great' for a brownie probably translates into different things. it means 'pretty good' for a denver/tennessee/carolina player; an 'ehhh' for a minnesota/kc/philly player; and a 'uhhhh' for an indy/st. louis player).
yes, being a browns fan is horrible...but, hey, that's what sports are all about. i'm in new jersey now - hate all of the yankees fans around here that popped up in the mid 90's when they got good again. seems like the sox/pats fans are creeping out of the woodwork too like termites. i don't like rooting for goliath - and, unless you've been a fan of them for a while, i don't see how people love to watch patriots or yankees games (sorry for straying a bit outside football. don't kill me). in the browns, i have the ultimate underdawg...
besides - they weren't always so bad. i remember watching them under kosar when marty was there. really good team; webster slaughter, reggie langhorn, cocaine-kevin mack and eric metcalf. i still hate elway, although i guess he and denver took some beatings that cleveland would have had to suffer through had byner held on to the ball when running into the endzone.
oh the humanity
