I would love to go into great detail about the Browns’ 14-11 loss to the Washington Redskins (no TDs in the first or third quarters this season…what is that?!), but there isn’t much there that I or anybody else hasn’t said about one thousand times before. Derek Anderson reverted back to his old ways that has made him one of the lowest-rated quarterbacks in the league and head coach Romeo Crennel appears to have little control over the team.
I say that about Crennel because tight end Kellen Winslow had some interesting comments after the game. It was his first game back after that illness that was kept under wraps, but only because the Browns wanted him to keep it quiet. It was yet another staph infection, something that has plagued the Browns in recent years, bringing questions about the medical practices of the team.
Winslow apparently did not appreciate the fact that he was asked to keep his situation under wraps. He said he doesn’t feel part of the organization in the sense that the team did not show any sort of concern for its Pro Bowl tight end. Because he did not take it up with the team and instead spoke to the media about this, the Browns and Crennel are considering some sort of reprimand towards Winslow. I say just let it go; the man suffered a staph infection and is understanably frustrated with how his season has gone. Let the man play and instead prepare for next week’s match-up: Jacksonville.
