    This is a good pick up for the Pats. I bet he has a major role this year in their offense. Every pick up they have had in the past 5 years has been good.

    Alright I guess you are right.

    The Ravens are the Browns Red-Headed Step Child.

    The Bengals are like the person in your family that nobody wants to deal with.

    There .. that sounds more like it.

    From the Hall of Fame website:

    In 1962, Art Modell,new majority owner of the Browns, fired Brown and sent him into football exile for five seasons.

    A year after the NFL and old American Football League decided to merge, Brown was awarded the Cincinnati franchise that began play in the AFL in 1968. He was in total control as head coach and general manager and in 1970, when everyone played under the NFL shield, he won a division title and went to the playoffs. At the time, that was the earliest playoff entry by any expansion team and it made a mockery of Modell's cruel denunciation, when he fired Brown, that "the game had passed him by."

    Of course, it never did. Brown, who was elected to the Hall of Fame the same year he founded the Bengals, proved it on the field during eight seasons as Cincinnati's head coach, making three more playoff appearances before retiring from coaching in 1975.


    Had Modell not fired Brown, The Bengals might not even exist.

    Oh,

    Well then he probably did say it. But merely to show how happy he was to be with the Browns.

    Like his statement would have been maybe,

    " I am so glad to play in Cleveland. I cannot wait to throw the ball to Andre Davis, Antonio Bryant, and Dennis Northcutt. Plus the TE in Winslow. " ( Winslow and his motorcycle antics hadn't happened yet )

    I read a story on ESPN..........but it might have been about someone else. Im pretty sure it was Davis though.




    and this was WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY before training camp and preseason.

    First off, what makes you assume Trent Dilfer wanted him to stick around when he was having a bad camp and being just an average reciever. He wasn't lighting up the camp and was struggling in the new offense.

    Also, Dillon was a Bengal. One thing you should never do is confuse the Bengals ( the Browns' red headed stepchild ) with the Browns.

    Yes, Seattle was very interested in Davis. But so were the Eagles.



    I read a story on ESPN that Dilfer like Davis but that was awhile ago...






    and sorry about the Dillon mixup. I wasnt thinking. yeah he was a Bengal not a Brown sorry...

    and now that is two years in a row the Browns have made the Pats better. Corey Dillon now Davis.





    Seattle probally would have given the Browns a higher pick probally. they really wanted Davis.

    Northcutt hasn't been impressive. But with Edwards having his holdout it is a safe bet to have Northcutt start.

    Well, that's why I asked you.

    Has Northcutt been doing well? I heard he had slipped a little.
    Of course, you know where most rumors go.

    It is a dumb move why?

    Let's see what the Browns get for trading him:

    A 5th round pick

    They get rid of a reciever that has been struggling in camp. Davis was struggling in camp so much so that it was unlikely he would be on the team. So Savage traded him while he could still get something for him. So let's see? Have him cut when the roster cuts come ... or to trade him for something.

    Furthermore, Brandom Rideau and Josh Cribbs have been lighting up camp and Braylon Edwards looked impressive in last week win. Plus Antonio Bryant is the starting reciever with Dennis Northcutt on the other side with Edwards slotted as the third reciever. However next season likely Edwards will move up and Northcutt will return to the third reciever spot.
