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.
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.
Cleveland smartly cut Derek Anderson and brought in Holmgren's guy, Seneca Wallace from Seattle.
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.
Sure, Delhomme was a turnover machine in Carolina, but he becomes an instant leader for a team that desperately needs it.
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.
