  1. Wow, read the story on Keyshawn … wow! I have heard third graders speak more coherently. ESPN has to break up their non-dream team of announcers. It is by far the weakest of the network and Keyshawn takes the cake, he is terrible! He is Michael Irvin without the greatness that was Michael Irvin (coming from a Niners Fan too). Less Keyshawn and more Tebow please!

    Niners Forever

  2. You could make a case for Keyshawn not living up to expectations either. Considering he was the 1st overall pick when he came out.

  3. I rarely agree with Marla Ridenour’s opinions about anything “Browns,” but she is dead-on correct about the GM situation in Cleveland.

    Ray Farmer is an asset to the front office and to the team. Letting him walk away would only make a sad situation much worse. Keeping Lombardi and losing Ray Farmer has “big mistake” written all over it.

    Haslam…it’s time to start making good on your promise to the fans of the Cleveland Browns. Hiring Mike Lombardi was a mistake. Keeping him would be a disaster.

  4. Keyshawn is a joke. He’s comparing Chip Kelly to expectations set by the media, not by Chip, not by the Eagles, and not by their fans. 4-11 to 10-6 and Division Champs = Expectations EXCEEDED!!

  5. ESPN is reporting that next year Monte Kiffin will call the Cowboys defensive plays from his assisted living facility in Fort Worth Texas via Closed Circuit TV. He will communicate the call to another defensive assistant that will actually be on the Cowboys sideline. Then, that assistant will relay the call to the defensive captain on the field (Sean Lee).
    That’s crazy ain’t it. Jerry Jones has really lost it this time! Geaux Saints!

  6. Lynch is going to make the press “ask” questions instead of feeding them the same responses that they can get from any other NFL player. The standard answer isn’t forthcoming. My guess is that they stop asking any questions and just give up on Lynch interviews as it is just too much work. Lynch will then concentrate on his craft.
