Week 11: Why In The Hell Are Fans Still Going To These Games?!

In what was perhaps the most exciting play of the season, Jacksonville recovered yet another Kizer fumble in the end zone for what appeared to most as an otherwise meaningless touchdown.  That play for me was absolutely wonderful.  I was dancing around in my living room almost crying as I had taken what is referred […]

Week 10: Holy Shit, Browns Played Watchable Football… Just Not Winnable Football

It gives you a good idea how low a franchise has sunk when getting thumped by the Lions by 14 points is considered a high water mark.  Yet is was undeniable that for a good portion of the game I was thinking about various scenarios on how the Browns would lose at the end as […]

Browns Bungle Trade – Special Edition

By now I am sure you heard that the Browns somehow bungled trading for AJ McCarron because they couldn’t get the forms sent in correctly.  There is a version of the story where the Browns say the Bengals messed up the paperwork, but this doesn’t jive with any facts on NFL trade protocol.  There is […]

Week 8: Browns Play London, Too Bad They Can’t Just Stay There

This was probably my favorite Browns game of the year.  Getting the loss out of the way by Noon is an amazing way to reclaim Sundays and theoretically add a little productivity.  I would firmly suggest that the organization moves all future games to a 9am start.  In fact, I would suggest that the team […]

Week 7: Here We Go Again, Again

There was a point in the game when it appeared the unthinkable might happen.  No, I am not suggesting that the Browns would win.  No, my fear was that the team would tie the game and throw a wrench into the purity of their mission of futility.  0-15-1 is somehow uglier than 0-16.  That tie […]

Week 6: Any Given Sunday My Ass

Former NFL Commissioner Pete Rozelle uttered the famous statement “On Any Given Sunday” in regards to league parity.  When he said that, there is no way he could have imagined the horror of the 2017 Cleveland Browns.  They make you nostalgic for the Johnny Manziel era Browns.  The team takes the field each week with […]

Week 5: There Is No Hope

A number of years ago I had an ingrown big toenail.  I went to a podiatrist’s office where a bored doctor looked down at my foot and said I needed a “procedure” to take care of it.  I asked him when we should schedule it, and he matter-of-factly said “we can just do it now […]

Week 4: Beware The Horror

I was in the recording studio all weekend, so I did not watch the Browns game as it happened.  I had a device set to the Red Zone Channel which enabled me to watch various Bengal players laugh it up doing cartwheels in the end zone every 20 minutes, so I knew what had happened […]

Week 3: Our Brownsy Season Dance Is In Full Swing

  There can’t be much debate.  The Browns are once again the worst team in the NFL.  In a game in which they were favored on the road, something of a gambling unicorn, they showed why they should never be expected to win a road game under any circumstances.  They somehow made a Jacoby Brissett […]

Week 2: That’s Why You Never Bet On The Browns

At the end of the Browns game I was one of the few degenerates that was still fully emotionally invested in the Browns scoring an otherwise meaningless touchdown to cut the Ravens win to seven points.  You see, I had tied to Browns into a “teaser” bet, also known as a “sucker bet”.  I had […]
