The Browns: Truly the Skidmark of the NFL's Underpants

Well, I can honestly say that I did not see this coming.  I did not expect to see Ken Dorsey as the starting quarterback for the Cleveland Browns when they face off against the one-loss Tennessee Titans on Sunday, December 7th.  Such is the case now, and the Browns are in complete disarray mode, if you have not already deemed them so.

Derek Anderson will also miss the remainder of the season with a torn MCL, possibly signaling the end of his bizarre tenure with the Cleveland Browns that saw him go from unknown to savior to pariah in three consecutive seasons.  Additionally, Romeo Crennel can pretty much kiss his job goodbye.  If ownership was smart, and I do believe it still is, one can expect to see Anderson, Crennel, and even Phil Savage fired at the end of the season.

So there you have it.  Oh, and Kellen Winslow won’t be playing against the Titans because of a high left ankle sprain.  The good news is that Martin Rucker will be getting playing time, and who knows what Winslow’s future with the team will even be.

Anyone else looking forward to the bloodbath that will ensue on Sunday?  Ken Dorsey, the “best third-stringer in the NFL,” is about to face the 11-1 Titans, playoff bound with higher aspirations.  Remember when the Browns were the sexy Super Bowl pick?

    I’d hardly call the Browns the Skidmarks of the NFL, especially with Detroit, Oakland, and Cincinnati living up to their expectations.  Besides, I’m looking forward to seeing how the Titan’s O-line size and the Browns’ D-line size match up, and if there’s any drop off in the secondary going from covering Wayne and Harrison (and Clark) to Gage and Jones (and Scaife).

    To be honest, the only team that I think can truly call themselves worse off than the Browns is the Lions.  I say that because, since 1999, the Brows have perennially been an awful team.  Despite them being 10-6 last season, they have been nothing but a huge disappointment with few signs of improvement.  You are right though; the line match-ups are the most intriguing match-ups of the game.  The secondary has been inconsistent all year, so it will be interesting to see how it responds.
