Shaun Rogers lands on IR

As expected, Browns nose tackle Shaun Rogers has been lost for the year.

Per Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Rogers has been placed on injured reserve with a lower leg injury.

It’s apparently a broken ankle; coach Eric Mangini said that Rogers will undergo surgery.

Cabot also points out that safety Brodney Pool has suffered another concussion.  It’s the fourth or fifth concussion of his career, and Pool’s career could be hanging in the balance, especially in the current environment.

Without these players, the Browns will have a hard time keeping their playoff hopes alive.

    haha…”playoff hopes.” What a punch in the nuts Mike.

    Got what he deserves!! That was a cheap shot on Palmer at the end of half and the sorry fat ass was smiling on the way to the locker room, it was just to bad his own player did it and not a Bengal.

    Haha. I have to give you credit on this one Florio, that last line cracked me up. Nice!

  4. Mustard says: Nov 30, 2009 6:11 PM

    OK… that last line was funny.
    Good stuff, Florio.

  5. ben_waballs says: Nov 30, 2009 6:11 PM

    Florio, you are the epitome of the toothless hillbilly jackass Steeler fan!

  6. HBOilers24 says: Nov 30, 2009 6:13 PM

    florio you asshat, was that jab really needed? i hope i get the chance to kick you when you’re down like you just did to my team…

    Just mean… GO BENGALS!

    That last comment is comedy gold.

  9. Brocktoberfest says: Nov 30, 2009 6:17 PM

    More proof that sarcasm is the lowest form of humor. Brownies 4 Life.

  10. ericpburt says: Nov 30, 2009 6:17 PM

    I actually laughed out loud at the last line there.

  11. timegambit says: Nov 30, 2009 6:22 PM

    Best last sentence ever!

  12. Furburger says: Nov 30, 2009 6:23 PM

    “Without these players, the Browns will have a hard time keeping their playoff hopes alive.”
    Florio, you’re an arrogant untalented piece of human garbage and a horrible journalist. Your humor is weak, pathetic, and your repeated knocking down of a team that knows they are a terrible mess shows unoriginal writing and self insecurities. You sir are sad…..

  13. OLDCRACKER says: Nov 30, 2009 6:23 PM

    “Playoff hopes?” Are you high?
    I’m sure there are enough former “athletes” on the streets of Cleveland to keep the team stocked. Hell, with Mangina as coach, what does it really matter???

    Haha what a D1cK lol

  15. DarthPirate says: Nov 30, 2009 6:29 PM

    I’m loving the offended Browns fans commenting on this post. Boofrigginhoo.

  16. ericpburt says: Nov 30, 2009 6:38 PM

    I wonder if anyone else liked the last line.

  17. Chevy says: Nov 30, 2009 6:39 PM

    Trailer Trash is a riot. What’s the matter? You wife say you couldn’t burn your couch today?

  18. TeHDruiD says: Nov 30, 2009 6:40 PM

    I’m as diehard of a Browns fan as anyone, but that last line was great, you can’t deny that.

  19. JJMADDOG says: Nov 30, 2009 6:43 PM

    As a Browns fan, it was cold, but it’s still funny. We need to laugh as this season is just abysmal. I really can’t blame Rogers though. The heat of battle and such, the smart play was let him get out of bounds, but instinct says make a tackle. He’s one of the few on this team that can tackle.
    It’s a terrible blow to the Browns as he was probably our best player.

  20. beantowndawg says: Nov 30, 2009 6:48 PM

    Wow Florio, you’re a dick. Cleveland bashing aside, you just followed a comment about a players career being ended because of injury with a cheap punchline. Seriously, I’d ask if you had no dignity but you’ve pretty much proved that one. Go back to chasing ambulances.

  21. Chevy says: Nov 30, 2009 6:48 PM

    Why don’t you post a pic of your buck-toothed face, you POS? I could use a laugh!

  22. Browns_fan_in_therapy says: Nov 30, 2009 6:48 PM

    I agree with the others… that last sentence made me laugh out loud. Hysterical.

  23. GoBrowns19 says: Nov 30, 2009 6:49 PM

    Dammit Florio, you stole my line!

  24. Zero says: Nov 30, 2009 6:51 PM

    The last line makes me think of that Coors Light commercial “Play-off’s… Wha… The Play-off’s!?”

  25. Iain19 says: Nov 30, 2009 6:54 PM

    Hey TD85,
    Way to show class, wishing injury on a guy cause he played football. Two years ago, that wasn’t even a flag. You just like other Bengals fans, keep your hopes up, choke in the playoff’s and enjoy your off season, it won’t be in Miami!!
    GO BROWNS!!!
    We are the most true fans in the league!

  26. alewatcher says: Nov 30, 2009 7:13 PM

    Hines Ward thinks Shaun Rodgers should just suck it up and get his ass on the field.

  27. thekillerkeller says: Nov 30, 2009 7:17 PM

    Browns fans have no sense of humor, they’re like Steelers fan’s that got past the denial stage…

  28. Palmer09 says: Nov 30, 2009 7:42 PM

    For you Browns fans on here that saw the humor in this, good for you. I’m a Bengals fan, and the majority of my life has been reading jokes about our team as well. When your team sucks (as both our teams do with regularity) you have to roll with the punches. It sucks your guy got hurt. Believe me, us Bengal fans know all too well what’s its like to lose a star player……(Palmer). And so that’s also the reason some people have no sympathy for your tackle getting hurt after he horsecollared Palmer yesterday. Either way, our teams both stink most of the time, and so you expect no one to crack jokes at you? Get used to it guys, we’re Browns & Bengals fans. Just hope our teams prove them wrong every chance they get!

    It just never gets old.

  30. The Coop says: Nov 30, 2009 7:56 PM

    Tough time keeping their playoff hopes alive, eh Florio?
    Kinda like your beloved Stillers, huh?
    You slack-jawed Yinzer hypocrite.

  31. clvbrownswillwin says: Nov 30, 2009 8:45 PM

    way to pick on the fans who have had nothing much to cheer for the last 15 years…. lame.
    that said.. it was kinda funny

  32. ncoolong says: Nov 30, 2009 9:06 PM

    Settle down, Browns fans. It’s a joke, I figured you’d be used to this by now!
    Either way, that’s without question the funniest thing you’ve ever written, Mike.

  33. slipkid says: Nov 30, 2009 9:26 PM

    i like the 1st line.
    IR must really be in pain now. what with all that 350# big baby landing hard on poor ole IR.

  34. BonnieD says: Nov 30, 2009 9:52 PM

    I hope he gets fined for that hit on Palmer.

  35. question8 says: Nov 30, 2009 9:58 PM

    Florio, you’re a steelers fan? Hows that working out this year!?! Nobody expected the Browns to be any good this year but those steelers, swept by cincy, back to back losses to KC and BAL and your always smiling wr calls out your big hearted tough as nails qb! No, you guys are fine

  36. Dawgpound2009 says: Nov 30, 2009 11:00 PM

    HA! HA! HA! The Browns playoff “chances” were screwed when they hired the “Man-jinx-us”. What a disaster! Week after week, it is one embarrassment after another ! Whether its Mangini’s “guess my starting quarterback” routine or Braylon Edwards punching out Lebron’s circus midget buddy, the comedy continues… You can raise a toast with your 1700 dollar bottle of water and salute “THE PROCESS”.

  37. Voyager6 says: Dec 1, 2009 12:34 AM

    1) Think positive. The Browns are tied for the 1st pick in the draft, aren’t they?
    2) Rogers probably wishes he adjusted that roster bonus date that prevented Cincy from signing him.

  38. wingnut56 says: Dec 1, 2009 8:51 AM

    Florio, Thanks for the laugh – as a long-suffering Browns fan, it’s time to quit pretending that things will be better “next year”. This team is a disaster and we need the national media to continue to make fun of them so that maybe, just maybe, Dandy Randy will actually do some thing with this team.
    He may actually be either the laziest, or dumbest owner in the NFL. All of the talk about him bringing in a football “Czar” to run the organization has produced zero to date. He’s resorted into using two of the most revered former Browns (Kosar and Brown) into being shills for him. Rag on Mangini all you like (he deserves it), but it was Lazy Lerner who hired him.

  39. KennyPowers says: Dec 1, 2009 9:31 AM

    Browns fans, you do know that your outraged comments directed at Florio only fuels his fire. Yes, he is a grade A douche that I imagine has no friends or talent to speak of, but he lives for this stuff. Have any of you noticed that anytime a reader makes a posting stating that he has misstated facts (happens approximately 1 in every 4 posts) it is corrected within a few hours? That is because after he writes these “articles” he sits around and giggles with his high school buddies (and by buddies I mean the boys that are still in high school that he gives beer to so they’ll hang out with him) while reading all of your heated comments. He is the Perez Hilton of sports and you all eat it right up.

    Michael Scott on Ryans cell phone voice : “Hey Mike Florio, were the Browns fans and were MAD!”

  41. Wellsee says: Dec 1, 2009 10:27 AM

    With that last (funny) line, aren’t you risking your own karmic comeuppance, a la Mr. S. Rogers?
