Default Winslow Vs. Joppru

Ok lets take the bets... Who is going to have a better season this year? There is no real news on eithers injury but both are day 1 TE's who havn't seen game time (Winslow does have 2 games with around 5 catches and 50 yards).


At this point i'm giving it to Joppru cause he has a better chance of seeing the field this year.

Winslow was seen leaving the hospital today on crutches and not applying pressure to his right leg at all.

So I'm going to have to go with Joppru.

Yeah, of course it's Joppru, you know Winslow will not play this year. Is Joppru even injured?

It doesnt look good for Cleveland. But it hasn't looked good for Cleveland for a long time. Who did they draft in the first round the past five years?

I'm just glad he's ok. He really shut up once he got in the pro's, but nobody wants to hear that, because it doesn't make for funny pictures about a serious motorcycle accident.

As for the Browns draft picks:
2005 - Braylon Edwards (should be good)
2004 - KW2 (unfortunate)
2003 - Jeff Faine (a good player)
2002 - William Green (won't work behind a bad O-line)
2001 - Gerrard Warren (Richard Seymore was supposed to be picked here, but Biutch went behind everyone's back and picked Warren)
2000 - Courtney Brown (not aggresive enough, and broke down easily)
1999 - Tim Couch (if you never draft an O-lineman in the first 2 rounds for the first 3 years of an expansion team, a QB is garunteed to bust out)

Oh, but he makes one statement in college, and he's villified?

I don't have any problem with his soldier statement as I have heard it reported. NFL Films, sportcasters, coaches and players have been using battlefield, war, warrior, soldier, gladiator, etc. comments for decades.

Just joshing you because keeping your yap shut for 2 weeks ain't exactly an achievement. The kid obviously has some ego problems (I should have been drafted #1 so you should pay me #1) and needs to work on his judgment a little. I certainly hope he comes back and has a productive career though--shame to see that talent wasted by choice, attitude or bad luck.

There are a ton of good and great TE's in the league right now. The position is a lot more valuable than it was about 10 years ago.

I wouldn't mind Gonzalez, Gates, Shockey, Heap, or Crumpler on my team.
