Ex-Bears Punter McGee on Thin Ice in Cleveland (Maynard)
Browns P McGee in wealth of trouble after poor showing

Cleveland Browns punter Richmond McGee should avoid quitting his day job.
McGee -- who doubles as a wealth manager for a brokerage firm in Austin, Texas -- might find his days in a Browns uniform ending sooner than he'd like.
The News-Herald reported that 14-year veteran Brad Maynard will take over punting duties starting Tuesday.
Maynard punted for the Chicago Bears the past 10 seasons (2001 to 2010) after spending his first four with the Giants (1997 to 2000). He averaged 40.1 yards per kick last season, worst in the league. Still, that's an upgrade from what the Browns saw in Sunday's 27-17 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, in which McGee shanked punts of 20, 28 and 30 yards.
Browns coach Pat Shurmur didn't exactly give the former Texas Longhorn a vote of confidence on Monday.
"We reviewed it today," Shurmur told The Plain Dealer. "We're going through it. We're going to make decisions there as we move forward. They'll become obvious, I'm sure.
"I wouldn't say he's lost his job right now. But we're evaluating it."
McGee made no excuses for his shaky performance.
"I'm all-around disappointed," McGee said. "I would definitely like to have done better for myself and the team. I've been looking forward to this for a long time. I have to get back to work and do better next week."
That's ironic. The Bears bring in McGee to replace Maynard and now Maynard is replacing McGee, LOL. Looks like the Bears knew what they were doing when they cut McGee, signed Podlesh and brought in Lanning to compete.
I'm getting to that age where a lifetime warranty just doesn't mean as much to me anymore as an afternoon nap. Honey Badger Don't Care. Honey Badger Don't Give a Shit.

Trade for Cribbs and use ST as offense and opposing defenses will finally pee their pants lol.
Arguing on the internet is like winning the special olympics, even if you win your still messed up.
Restore the roar!
First we make a motion to the league offices that punts going out of bounds now given at the 40 as well, than the world is ours.
