    I hope he's enjoying that little corner of hell that was
    Set aside, just for him.

    I referenced that link in my e-mail to Grossi in support of him keeping the bastard out of the Hall.

    Fucking hell. That takedown is so comprehensive I went from no, to HELL NO to HELL YES on his HOF candidacy... hear me out on this:

    Put Modell in the hall. Give his bust its own room. Let people draw dicks on it, and replace it with a clean one every day so it can be done all over again. Play closed captioned audio of this blog post over a slide show on multiple screens throughout the room. Let's preserve Art Modell's legacy, because everybody needs to remember how big of a piece of [Mark May] he was.

    I think with McCoy's salary escalating this much he might be history.

    Mike80 make it happen

    Aren't the Browns like $40 million under the cap still? Unless they go on a huge spending spree (unlikely), or unless he loses the QB competition to where he would be the 3rd QB (50-65% chance), I doubt they'll cut him anytime soon.

    A trade could happen, I guess....

    only problem is that everything in the article was absolutely true.

    BayBuck Buckeyes are best

    "no Hall of Fame credentials"?

    Everything in that Browns fan's blog is his own bitter opinion of a man who broke his heart. Most of his complaints are petty personal ones. Go read a pro-Modell tribute from Baltimore, and everything in it will be "absolutely true" too. Emotion and perspective make all the difference.

    Modell was a 40+ year AFL/NFL owner with a Super Bowl win and was obviously a part of the league's exponential growth over the decades. I'd vote for DeBartolo first for all the Super Bowls, but Modell probably gets in eventually.

    I think if he doesn't get in this year he will never get in and you need to go over to Cleveland.com and read Terry Pluto's column on why he does not deserve to get in.

    Didn't watch the Pro Bowl, but it's funny that Cribbs almost matched his season stats in one game.

    Season: 7 for 63 with no TD's
    Pro Bowl: 3 for 56 with 1 TD

    That's where I feel Cribbs still has a little value.
    Wildcat and as a 4th/5th WR.

    Though I'm not sure if that will justify his cost.

    It would be a damn shame to let him & Dawson go
    If we went on and had a respectable season.

    With regard to Cribbs, it will be interesting to see if the new regime wants to bring him back and if they do how much is he willing to come back for. Jackson could be a valuable third down RB and Benjamin would be a nice kick returner although a little fragile for kickoff returns.

    Regarding Dawson, I do not know if he wants to come back or not and I don't think in his case it will be a matter of money. It will be whether he wants to come back or not.

    Both would be overpaid. Neither would best Weeden
    In camp. Waste of money.

    Don't shoot the messenger but here are some possible free agents that the Browns might take a look at. The Arizona guys are interesting because of their ties with Horton and there are a couple guys on the offensive side that have past ties with Chud or Turner. However, none of the guys on the offensive side appeal to me except for maybe Vasquez but there are a couple other free-agent guards available that might be better. Rather than looking at a free-agent RB, I would rather see them re-sign Jackson and, if he is willing, I would like to bring back Watson for a couple more years.

    I am listing the OLB's because we are going to need a couple and they look fairly intriguing.
