When Kellen Winslow was selected 6th overall by the Browns in the 2004 NFL draft, it was easy to imagine a mirroring image of Jason Witten in terms of consistent production at the TE position. Nearly ten years later, that hasn’t been the case. Pictured below with former corrupt Miami Hurricanes football booster, Nevin Shapiro, Winslow has never been one to shy away from voicing his opinions.
Winslow caught a TD pass on his only target on Monday Night vs. the Falcons. But despite the Jets improving to 3-2 on the night, Winslow expressed his dissatisfaction. With reporters approaching him for his comments on the game, Winslow told them “I don’t think that would be a good choice.”
On a night where Geno Smith became just the second rookie QB to capture a road victory on MNF, a Winslow tirade would have been quite comical. But, don’t fret ‘cuz, I got you.
In this edition of Throwback Thursday we travel back to 2003 and Winslow’s college days, where his Miami Hurricanes had just suffered a defeat at the hands of the Tennessee Volunteers. Winslow delivered an interview for the ages while discussing the block he threw for ‘Canes teammate Devin Hester on a sweep play.
Dig into the crates below and remember one thing, “We don’t care about nobody except this U.”
The Browns are a team that hinge on a glimmering ray of hope that this will be the year they overcome their carousel of basement finishes. With Norv Turner’s newly implemented vertical passing attack and Brandon Weeden looking improved in the pre-season, some thought this would be the year. Two weeks into the season and Browns fans were singing the familiar tune of 0-2. But, with Weeden out the past two weeks due to a thumb injury, backup QB Brian Hoyer has the Browns back to .500.
The Cleveland offense has been completely overhauled with Hoyer at the helm. Passing for 590 yards and 5 TDs across his first two starts, the former Michigan State Spartan has made Jordan Cameron and Josh Gordon into fantasy assets. Hoyer has a favorable matchup at home on Thursday night against a Bills defense that ranks 22nd against the pass. With Trent Richardson in Indianapolis, this is Hoyer’s offense as long as he continues to mitigate the mistakes and execute Turner’s vertical assault.
