You've Got to be Kidding


Despite calling ourselves "CursedCleveland," purchasing numerous business cards and magnets with the "CursedCleveland," insignia, and starting publication of "CursedCleveland.com The Publication", we really don't feel the Browns are cursed, per se. But after hearing this report first on this morning's Rizzo on the Radio, we're starting to seriously reconsider our whole take on the fortunes of this city. According to ProFootballTalk.com:

In response to a tip that we recently received regarding the condition of Browns tight end Kellen Winslow following microfracture surgery on the knee that he initially injured when he made like Evel Knievel in May 2005, we've checked with a couple of our sources and we've determined that the powers that be in Cleveland are not counting on Winslow to be available for the 2007.

"There really is a good chance he won't play this season," a league source told us. The bigger question, as the source pointed out, is why didn't the Browns shut Winslow down earlier in the 2006 season? They were out of the playoff hunt, and yet Winslow (to the pleasure of fantasy owners only) continued to play despite being listed as questionable nearly every week due to his knee.

"I would have made him have the surgery earlier to make sure he'd be ready for this upcoming season," said the source. But there are also whispers that, in the wake of the procedure for creating scar tissue that will simulate knee cartilage, Winslow might never be able to play again.

Wow. So many questions. If there's any validity to this at all, do the Browns consider taking big-play receiver Calvin Johnson in next month's draft? What are the financial implications considering all this dates back to Winslow's initial motorcycle mishap? Has the "Soldier" been receiving his treatment at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center? Does LeBron tear his ACL this weekend or next? Stay tuned...

If Winslow can't play again they should move the team to Las Vegas.

I thought it was supposed to be "minor" microfracture surgery...we're lied to once again.

This is to the first comment...if you think that the team should be moved to Las Vegas then I realy question your loyalty to Cleveland Sports.
