No matter where Griffin end up, he wasn't going to be on the field long enough. He's too reckless on the field. Every injury came from being outside of the pocket.

Griffin's personal life is his business. I won't get into that.

Can't catch a break? The traded away their shot at a franchise QB for a fragile question mark.

They made their own bed.

I don't think he'll get his starting job back, even when he does fully recover from his injury.

I would not have brought up his personal life normally but after dealing with Manziel last year, I know Cleveland was looking forward to a break from TMZ like stories, then RGIII comes out with ditching his family for the new woman.

I bet they will sit him when he returns and release him after the season so as not to incur any financial penalties. He was not the answer and lasted less than one game before an injury sidelined him. Go with McCown and the rookie and draft a top QB next draft. Not picking Wentz wasn't a smart move but whats done is done and move on. There is a learning curve for the new front office who do not come from a football background but are smart guys and things will get better. Jackson was a home run as coach and there are better times ahead. RG3 was worth the risk and its not like they gave up anything to get him. Manziel was worth a flyer too as a medium 1st round pick. If they worked out everyone is a genius.

McCown is the better QB anyways.


If you are a scrambling QB in the NFL and you don't know how to slide you will be on the IR soon enough. That's on him.

You're talking about Cleveland, remember.

Tim Tebow, Sonny Jurgensen and Johnny Unitas all have a chance of being their starting quarterback this season.

And, yes.. I am aware that Unitas is dead.

Yes, but as I said, I don't even know if he will even get his job back, even in Cleveland. Some starters don't. We will see how well Cleveland does with RG3 in their roster but I don't think that will help Cleveland. I didn't help with Manziel and I do believe RG3 needs to prove what he has if he wants to take Cleveland to the playoffs.

Y.A. Tittle is only 89 years old. I'm sure he's in tip top game shape. #BelievelandBelievesInTittle
