Random musings of a muser


The best part about football after a demoralizing loss, is the next week. No longer is there time to reflect the Browns game. No longer is there constant revision of August projections. It's time...

The hangover is unbearable... also taking a look around NFL SB Nation


I have to say, I have some of the best readers -- all five you. Kudos. Most of the comments here and the emails -- bunches -- I've received have all had that calming criticism of the team rather...
