Phil Savage Ate His Wheaties Before This Weekend


Corey Williams, Shaun Rogers, and now Donte’ Stallworth.  The wide receiver signed a seven-year, $35 million deal, with $10 million of it guaranteed.  Not a bad weekend – watch some college basketball, maybe go clubbing, oh yeah, and make $10 million without doing a thing.

What Stallworth will be doing is stretching the defense with his great speed.  His hands remain a question to some, but I would take him as a second receiver any day.  Derek Anderson (I’ll play that game for now) now has a myriad of weapons at his disposal.  With the offensive line as good as it is, it would be almost impossible to fail.  The only thing that will undo a quarterback with the Browns is the QB himself (I’m teaching Buddhist principles now).

In 2007, Stallworth caught 46 passes for 697 yards with the New England Patriots.  If it were not for the emergence of Wes Welker, Donte’ would have been utilized a little more.  It seemed like every time I managed to tune into the Patriots (which seemed to be every week, considering they owned Sunday and Monday nights), Stallworth did nothing.  He got lost in the Patriots’ offense, but I doubt that will happen with the Browns to that extent.

Who will teams focus on?  Braylon EdwardsKellen Winslow?  Stallworth?  Is it September yet?
