    I will never root for the Brown’s again. They should reimburse all of the season ticket holders

    A first round pick for him? Not sure if that was wise since this will be a so so year for the colts, 2-14

    Pete, 2-14, really? Are you a Browns fan that jumped on our site or something? Yes, our OL has issues and the fact the Raiders were even in a position to win late in the game is concerning but this team is NOWHERE near a 2-14 team. As good a record as last year? Probably not. But this team will fight to the very end and if you beat them you’re going to know you’ve been in a battle for 60 minutes. As far as Trent goes, if he can stay healthy playing with a team that actually has vertical threats and a top tier QB he will be a beast. Colts trending up….WAY UP!
