Roger Brown went after Phil Savage today, because, my lord, the Browns lost their first game. Fire the bastard!:
Why, after two years of spending tens of millions of dollars on offensive linemen (Joe Andruzzi, L.J. Shelton, Bob Hallen, Cosey Coleman and Kevin Shaffer, among others) do the Browns still have a line incapable of keeping a quarterback from running his rear off all game - merely to survive all four quarters?Agreed, what the hell is Savage trying to do here, upgrade the line? What an asshole.
Really, in your heart of hearts, do you think this offensive line would be a top-quality NFL unit even if injured center LeCharles Bentley had played this season?I think that if the Browns had A) a pro-bowl center and B) the same unit working together for the entire preseason (with the aforementioned pro-bowl center) they'd be un-gawd-awful. But that's just me.
Since it's obvious rookie inside linebacker D'Qwell Jackson and veteran Chaun Thompson are of equal talent - Jackson barely won the starting job over Thompson - shouldn't you have devoted the second-round pick you spent on Jackson to taking a promising offensive lineman? While the best OL prospects were still available on the draft's first day?
