    I was a member of a message board that had a strong contingent of Cleveland Brown fans back when William Green was the answer. All I’m saying with Harrison: tread lightly.

    Is Browns RB Jerome Harrison a flash in the pan

    he showed clearly he was the best running back the browns had a couple of years ago but even after he recovered from his injuries, the dimwit crennell kept either taking him out or just kept playing slow footed jamal lewis who was over the hill for years. just how he let anderson ruin last season and the year before by refusing to put in quinn.
    crennell and savage the 2 most incompetants deserve their current positions of NOT being there.

    If you look at both Lee Evans or Eric Moulds, you will see that neither of them have had a stable QB or offensive system to play in. Eric would have crushed Andre Reeds stats if he had quality QB play and I believe Lee would have beet both of their numbers if we could get the guy a QB and offensive coordinator who likes to go downfield.

    “Bills WR Lee Evans might have had a different career if he hadn’t played with seven different quarterbacks in the last six seasons.”
