1. i know this sounds like defeatism......
but there is literally no hope for that franchise. there is never going to be a winning thing ever again. call it a jinx or karma, but it matters not who is the owner, who is the coach, who is the quarterback, and especially who is the number one draft pick. this organization will never turn the corner on how bad they are. if they ever get close again, the powers that be will send a message to the referees to end their hopes, or a bone-headed coaching decision will lead to a last minute defeat pulled from the jaws of victory.(Pittsburgh loss in the playoffs two years ago) if you need proof, just look at a few names/events: kellen winslow, tim couch, mike junkin, mike phipps, kevin johnson, the drive, the fumble, etc, etc. i can think of numerous other examples but can't remember their names. i am sorry but i am outta here as a supporter of that team, and for that matter professional sports in general. (see detroit pistons/indiana pacers highlights) being a cleveland fan is right up there with, oh i don't know.....pissing in the wind.
