Let me ignore the most horrific hyperbole I've ever seen on this site in your last sentence and focus on a fundamental problem I have with the othr part of the paragraph.
Who drafted Colt?
Who made the mistake of spending a relatively valuable pick on a weak-armed midget with a stage daddy who you say can't benefit from the three best receivers in the game?
The experts, right? The ones I can't question or complain about suddenly, right? They drafted Colt and they probably shoulda known about his arm and his height and his old man, no?
They drafted Colt. They signed Jake Delhomme and paid him maybe the most ridiculous $25m ever paid out in the NFL. They brought in a backup like Seneca Wallace who refuses to be a mentor to young QBs, yes?
And I'm expected to believe that they got it right with Weeden and did so at 22? And I suppose I should believe the fact he's almost 30 will preclude him from having to learn the league and take his lumps for the next two years to the point when he's headed toward 32 or so, he may be the right guy, right?
You see nothing at all in any of this that limits my faith and confidence in the same assholes who gave you all of the above suddently swinging it 180 the other way Thursday night when they took a guy at 22 that wasn't on their 1st round board?
Y'all can receive it warmly. I'm an eye-rolling, head shaking, lol-ing motherfucking disbelever right now.
Keep the 'Gotta Have Faith or Ya Got Nothing at All' shit on this one.
I have hope. Very little, but I have hope.
That's not faith. And anyone that has it needs to look at themselves and ask why the fuck they do if you ask me.
Goddamn. If wives and girlfriends treated ya like this front office does you'd wake up and walk, no? You wouldn't let them keep walking all over ya like we do. How many times she gonna fuck your friend and say she won't again?
I don't get it.
Oh my God.
Useless fucking blathering.
Fine - the Browns are a bad girlfriend. Everyone bitches about their girlfriend sometimes just to get some shit off their chest, but if someone finds themselves doing it constantly, the best advice is Leave the bitch.
It's like Ohio winter. You think we all don't hate the winter? You think we all don't hate the gray skies and the wind chill and the black snow piles and the salt-encrusted cars as much as you do unless we let you know over and over again - just in case you forget?
Did I ever ask you to have faith? No. Did I ever tell you that their moves were all good, that they were beyond questioning? Hell no.
Mike Holmgren has certainly made some mistakes and deserves some of the criticism he's receiving. Sound familiar?
When did you fuckin' lose it that not covering myself in retrospective self-pity - about a situation that none of us have the power to do anything about - is somehow blind support? Seems like just a week ago that you understood this. Rehashing mistakes repeatedly like we don't all know them, grasping onto hearsay (like what someone claims was the Browns draft board) as if it were fact, seemingly proclaiming everyone instant-busts b/c of who picked them... The draft broke you.
