  1. Asante is a world class pussy when it come to tackling. He didn’t get signed to tackle? I guess they signed him to act like a bobble head doll, throw his shoulders at air, and get 15 yard penalties. That’s not a lot of return on 55 million….

  2. Of course Rob Ryan can keep his sense of humor… its not his side of the ball that keeps losing games….. The Browns would probably have one of the best defenses if they weren’t playing 55 mins a game

  3. Hey Asante, that is why Sheldon Brown is the best corner on this team.

  4. “The Rams are counting on S James Butler’s experience to help them slow down Peyton Manning and the Colts this weekend.”
    Yes, because James Butler was SO good when he was on the Giants! I am sure Peyton is shaking in his boots! There’s a reason why they scrapped him for a 7th rounder, Michael Johnson.

  5. Asante has a valid point. If you don’t want players who can’t play the game, don’t sign them.
