As embarrassing as our loss to Cle was last season, I'm still not buying this crap:

BROWNS: Believe!

WARNING: I am about to write something really nice about the Cleveland Browns. Linebacker Scott Fujita told me on Sirius NFL Radio that when he met with Mike Holmgren and Tom Heckert, he felt the same way as he did when he signed with the Saints.

I like Fujita and Tony Pashos as veterans and leaders at areas of need, linebacker and offensive line, respectively. Cleveland smartly cut Derek Anderson and brought in Holmgren's guy, Seneca Wallace from Seattle. Cleveland signed Jake Delhomme last weekend, and I think it's a great fit. Sure, Delhomme was a turnover machine in Carolina, but he becomes an instant leader for a team that desperately needs it.  Despite turnover problems with Carolina, Jake Delhomme adds quarterback stability for the Browns.
Nick Laham


Delhomme and Wallace are upgrades over Anderson and Brady Quinn, who was traded to Denver for basically nothing. Give Holmgren credit for recognizing that Quinn and Anderson, fair or unfair, represented futility from a prior regime. It was time to get rid of them both. And I loved the Ben Watson pickup at tight end. Strong, solid building blocks from a great new brass


MUST WE endure this every year?  BTW, Adam Seinfeld is a clown.

Jake DelMonte?  Really?

I do too.  I mean, he was asked to do so much with the Panthers.  That entire offense was on his shoulders; no running game to speak of; no quality talent at WR.  I can't think of one single guy they split out wide that would even be considered for the Pro Bowl.  And, that offensive line??  Horrific.

Things will be markedly different for him this year in Cleveland.  He can sit back and let all of those playmakers do their thing.  Just get 'em the ball.  Just.  Lead.

You watch.

Championship.

Desperate and on his last legs? Or just entering a shithole of a city considered a general disaster area? Granted, there aren't people in Cleveland on their rooftops camping out and dramatically looking to be rescued (ala Katrina) but that is just because they're too lazy to climb up there. Cleveland sucks, but at least Holmgren has stopped blaming the Super Bowl XL refs for the complete despair and carnage of that city from when he first arrived.

His "guy"? Well I will leave all the gay jokes alone (145%) there because it's nothing that doesn't need be said, but let me get this straight (no punz!): Scott Fujita went on Sirius NFL Radio and told Adam Schein that he's confident in Mike Holmgren's guy Seneca Wallace? How convincing.

His guy? Must really trust him. That can never go bad. I bet Marty Brodeur's brothers-in-law all thought he was their guy. Wayne Bridge told me John Terry's always been his guy out there on the pitch. OJ once called his waiter at the Mezzaluna his "My man!" which, I think, is basically the same as being his guy but we all saw how that played out.

So he was a turnover machine surrounded by guys like Steve Smith, Jonathon Stewart, Jeff Otah, Jordan Gross and DeAngelo Williams but he'll be better, against better defenses, around the likes of this new guy Pashos? No deal!

He'll be a bonafide leader alright if you continue counting his turnover totals. Now I'm done.
