    I don't blame Cleveland for tanking the season if that's what it takes to make a better product on the field then lose all the games you can. Because if that number #1 pick is that good you go for it. When Bears where bad when Wanstdude was coach and we had no chance of going nowhere in 1997 season losing everything would have been the way to go. That following year Peyton Manning was in the draft no lets get Curtis Anis instead. Bears and running backs always looking to get off the F'n bus running. I'm so glad that shitass remark has gone out the F'n door.

    Peyton Manning went #1 overall, and the Colts had a death grip on that pick. No one was getting it. What was stupid was trading a #1 pick for a proven bust at QB.

    I'm also feeling even better about picking up the Vikings defense in FF for this weekend.

    FWIW: Bush has only had eight rushing attempts in these two games for 15 yards. That is 1.9 YPC.

    I doubt there are any teams calling the Bears about him, and if they are, likely not offering much of anything for him.

    If the Bears trade him, not sure they would miss him or lose much by using Ford in his place.

    Jason Campbell is such a great backup that Hoyer is getting to start over him....wow.

    Call me crazy but in this case I think both teams win on the trade.

    Colts have their QB, and they get a needed piece.

    Browns put on the paper bag face again, and restock next year. T.Rich went #3 overall, which is a steep price. BUT, look where running backs are generally getting picked now days... I can see them getting equal value at the position (if they even want to go that direction) with the Colt's first round next year in the mid 20s. What is more, I think you have a greater chance of getting a quality running back in the later rounds. More diamonds in the rough sorta thing... (they have been loading up with draft ammo before this trade, fyi). The browns wanted an Adrian Peterson, they took a shot and missed. Martin > Richardson.

    What I do not like is giving up and running out of bounds short of the sticks. F___ that! as a fan I couldn't stand it. This game isn't poker, why fold? Overall a reboot is a good strategy, but I can't support it. I want to root for the guys that bounce back after getting knocked down.

    You can build your team multiple ways, now Lombardi gets his wet dream (his own team)... Your choices better be good Michael because that was your best player. You miss next year, and you're done. Better choices and fa's would have been my plan. We'll see, if Lombardi is good you'll know it soon.

    It must really suck to be a Cleveland fan.

    This was a stupid move for this year, but if the Browns actually want it to work, they had god **** better keep Lombardi for a few years, so they can have a coach and GM who can actually implement their system, long term. They have 2 firsts , 2 3rds and 2 4ths early in the draft. Use one or two of the latter picks to get another running back. Draft Bridgewater and continue to build that offensive line.

    Browns actually saved face. They never should have drafted Richardson that high. He was overrated. Just a byproduct of Alabama hype. To actually be able to get a number 1 pick in return is quite a deal, all things considered. The Colts seem to think he's going to be like Edgerrin James and they'll be sorely disappointed.
