Wayback Machine Experiment (aka Retro Day at Cleveland Browns Stadium)

Mr. Peabody here, with his pet boy, Quipper. We decided to try something new with the Wayback Machine yesterday. At promptly 12:58pm, we chose to bring the "expansion franchise" spirit from the Cleveland Browns 1999 team to the current day. And, boy - sorry, Quipper - we exceeded expectations. We never imagined that we could fully take the atmosphere, lack of organization, and chaos from one age, and superimpose it on another team with much better talent than the 1999 team.

And now, to repeat the obvious, here are this week's Idiot of the Week awards:

Win - Braylon, University of Michigan "whiner student athlete" and Browns wide receiver. He shot off his mouth several times this past week, then physically confronted quarterback Charlie Frye on the sidelines during the game. Not smart. The ongoing saga of prima donna wide receivers continues in the NFL.

Place - Charlie Frye - an all-around bad game against one of the worst pass defenses in the NFL. This should have been an easy game for him to prove is decision making ability.

Show - Romeo Crennel, head coach of the Browns. I guess the team met his "leave it all on the field" quota of one game, last week against the Steelers. Oy Vey!

Honorable Mention - The remainder of the Cleveland Browns team. No spirit, no gumption, no energy. That's their own fault.

Wake me up when the season ends....

Amen to that.

I'm a little disappointed. When can I get one of these here awards? I've picked Cleveland 2 straight weeks. Can I get a super special honorary honorable mention?

Hah yeah I'd say you should get one. No offense Quipper but I don't think I've even picked the Browns twice in the last couple of years. I didn't pick them at all last year but for opening week this year I finally decided to pick Cleveland.... and they lost. So I'm not picking them again this year.

Angus: no offense taken, the Browns don't deserve to be picked.

Scottius: yes, I will give you a super honorary honorable mention. :-)
