Where's that Sanchize v. Franchise thread again?
C'mon man. Every time you bust that out you're basically admitting you can't help falling in and out of love with these guys every single week.
How did a man who is such a self-proclaimed QB know it all fall in love with a weak armed fan pet who wouldn't make the practice squad. I try and take your stuff seriously and I know you know the game but daaaaamn......Superb play when it counts to make it count, thats what we got Sunday , led by our Mule team running back Hillis and our throrobred Stallion Franchise QB in the making McCoy.
Its what you want , a kid dissed by all with a chip on his shoulder something to prove and winning for us ,toss the salt over your shoulders rub your rabbitts foot and slap yourself the Cleveland Browns done finally found a quarterback.
That was beautiful and touching. It moved me then and moves me now but it doesn't show much consistency.The team mounts up buckles their chinstraps and responds to this kids leadership , the coaches have daring the defense is stout and the team displays unbeleivable heart .
You can't put a formula to it and you can't define it , butt neither can you any longer ignore it .
The Browns got a diamond out of the dust bin uncut, and rough butt tuff as a three dollar steak and hard as concrete cut nail ,mentally ready to battle and more than prepared to lead .
Oh my goodness. That could have been cleaned up and sent out by Colt's agent.
Busting balls my man. If I could sell you that thread so you could burn it I would. But it would cost ya few bucks and a case of beer.
Hell peaks , I'm not sure why we're hijacking a free agent release thread into a QB thread but I'll play.
You'll notice my comments were singularly in surprise over Colts play that game , giving an honest appraisal of how good he looked in that game from a fans perspective , a sentiment mostly shared by all including the papers the next day and Swerb who flat out proclaimed him as the answer .
It was refreshing at the time to see such , a young kid working his nuts off coming from nowhere and looking so promising , caution gets thrown to the wind and for once you can enjoy the moment .
Well at seasons end the evaluations are on and the weekend drinks have have been long since worn off and now its time to pay the bill and your looking at room charges by your quests of goat sacrifices and hookers and chaufered trips to the liquor store all on your dime and things are different.
Same with Colt who now you must look at with the hard eye of evaluation and not that of an adoring fan .
Kid is coming up short vs the competition available when we pick , kid is coming up short in terms of a limited ability to throw passes in this league , not to mention injury concerns about a nagging shoulder which has been bothering him since the Bama game , and not even counting the high ankle sprain bullshit which could happen to anybody .
In life no honey moon lasts forever , only for the Browns fans and their latest puppy infatuations which carry on beyond all reason.
So thus all the tongue wagging while fingers are placed firmly in ear and comments with their eyes wide shut.
Nobody with any objectivity could say Colts last month looked good, but 80% of these posts center from that most unreasonable standpoint
