If you want to claim that won't be a distraction, that's fine. I myself don't see how it can't be.Tim Tebow would've been a nice addition for the Jets as a wildcat weapon if not for the media surge that accompanies him. Would you say Tebow's presence isn't a distraction? And Tebow, despite being a bad QB, has a TON more value than Colt.I will also admit having developed a personal dislike for Colt for the same reason that I dislike Tebow, and can certainly see my objectivity on the matter eclipsed by my desire to never see his stupid little face again.Let's hope you're right and now that the real season has begun we never have to discuss Doe Eyes again.

I also gotta think that Haslam is fully on board with the youth movement. This could work out really well in 2014. Or the whole thing could be a massive trainwreck of epic promotions. Either way, it will be fascinating to watch.

Because the Browns will lose. Early and often. Their record will in no way be representative of the progress or hope - people will actually need to watch the games and pay attention to the development - week to week improvements, regardless of the final score.5-11 with some cohesion and intensity and learning - optimistic for 20135-11 with mutiny and despair and a rerun of the end of the Chris Palmer "era" - reboot. Again.

I suspect they aren't unified.He hasn't shared a vision or anything like that, has he?If he has a plan, he's already light years better than Lerner. Since all indications are he is formulating a plan, he is ten years ahead of Lerner.Whatever Haslem does or does not bring, it simply can not be any worse than the last 13 years.
