    Releasing Barnidge was another dumb move by a dumb organization. You don't win by getting rid of talent.

    The Browns have announced that Deshone Kizer will be the starter for the season. He sure didn't earn it. His last preseason game he went 6 for 18.

    His 6 for 18 performance did, however, receive praise from the black supremacist mainstream media, which has an agenda of replacing white quarterbacks with black quarterbacks. Kizer is the beneficiary of black privilege.

    Sashi Brown, who runs the Browns, has now passed on two potential franchise quarterbacks in Mitch Trubisky and Carson Wentz. It looks as if Brown doesn't want a starting quarterback that's white, even if they are a potential franchise quarterback. He'd rather have a quarterback that goes 6 for 18.

    And that's why the Browns don't win.

    Don't forget the INT. With Kizer at the helm, Notre Dame's record was 4-8 in 2016.

    In the first 8 weeks before their bye, Kizer will be facing some decent defenses (Steelers, Ravens, Texans, Titans, Bengals, Vikings), so perhaps one of the white QB's (Osweiler, Kessler, Hogan) will replace him if/when he struggles.

    I think Kessler is their best quarterback and did well as a rookie last year. Of course he's white, so the Browns made a lesser black player the starter.

    The Browns passed on a potential franchise quarterback in Carson Wentz in 2016 and passed on another one in Mitch Trubisky in 2017.

    Did they pass on them because they're white?

    Mike Junkin was a linebacker that was drafted by the Browns 5th overall in the 1987 draft. He's often listed on all time bust lists so I looked him up.

    Junkin was in the league 3 years and he was injured all 3 years. The injuries may have been why he didn't do well.

    Yeah, but we also document the many black players who are busts essentially for the same reason. Junkin was a bust. But that's not the point. The point is that for every white "bust" like Junkin, their are at least 20-30 (or more) black busts that are ignored by the usual suspects.

    Frank Ryan quarterbacked the Browns to their last championship in 1964. He later became a professor of mathematics at Rice University.

    After 5 games this season the Browns are 0-5. Last year they were 1-15 and were almost 0-16.

    So Hue Jackson is now 1-20 as head coach of the Browns. I wonder what the record for badness is for coaching 1 team.

    The morons that own the Browns should have stuck with Mangini instead of trying to bring in the fat walrus. That season where Hillis had that breakout season they were close in just about every single game, losing by no more than a score in any of their losses except for maybe 1 or 2, typically they only lost by a FG. They ran all over the Patriots back when they had the most elite run defense in the league year in and year out, and Hillis put another monster game up against the Ravens who had another elite run defense, I think practically no one had a 100 yard game against the Ravens at that time, spanning seasons, and Hillis crushed them. They also whooped the defending Super Bowl champions in the Saints. They were just a few pieces away from being a perennial contender, they needed to shore up one side of their offensive line and get a good starting QB (McCoy might have fit that role, given a good chance to develop). What have they done since the fat walrus threw the baby out with the bathwater? Only taken back their title of the joke of the league.

    Since November 30, 2014, the Browns are 4-45, the worst such stretch in NFL history. In a league in which parity is the goal, it's mind-boggling that a team can consistently be so bad. The only time the Browns looked to be turning it around was in 2010, when Eric Mangini was the head coach and Peyton Hillis had his one and only big season, the only thousand yard rushing season by a White RB in the past 33 years. Cleveland was 6-10 that year but got stronger as the season went along, including beating the Patriots at home.

    They were clearly on the upswing but then washed-up Caste icon Mike Holmgren was hired as GM after the '10 season and he promptly fired Mangini (who hasn't been offered a head coaching job since) and blew the team up and the Browns have been a complete disaster ever since. Since firing Mangini the franchise is 24-86 with no end to the futility in sight, although team owner Jimmy Haslam is quoted in an AP article today as saying that finding a new quarterback is the Browns' number one priority, so at least Kizer looks to be gone or demoted after the season.

    Holmgren was actually hired after the '09 season. Mangini only kept his job in 2010 because he had three years left on a four year contract, and the Browns still owed millions to Phil Savage and Romeo Crennel. Mangini getting into a power struggle with first year GM George Kokinis during the 2009 season and ousting him left him with a lot of power on a bad team, leading to the Holmgren hire. If Mangini and Kokinis could have co-existed things may have gone much better for all involved.

    I don't have sympathy for Mangini. His betrayal of Belichick in 2007 has given him a deserved reputation as being untrustworthy. He was lucky he got that big payday in Cleveland, as his coaching career may have been otherwise over after he was fired by the Jets. Mangini was a coach with great potential that was derailed by hubris and reckless ambition.

    The Browns are o-14. They are two games away from negative nirvana.

    Their poor record is a direct result of "affirmative action" hiring. They hired an incompetent black to run the organization. He, in turn, hired other incompetent blacks. We see the results.

    Browns are down 20-3 heading into the fourth quarter. Since they play at Pittsburgh next week and that game looks unwinnable, they indeed are going to end up 0-16.

    Since the Browns are guaranteed the #1 overall draft pick next year, there's no reason for them to let DuhShone start again...except skin color, of course.

    The Browns now have the #1 overall pick and the #4 overall pick in next year's draft. The burning question is...how will they manage to screw this up?

    Hue's continued employ with the team really is a good thing. If next year those same Charlie Browns go 0-16, Hue will be the only coach to have gone 1-47, which is a much more remarkable statistic and one which may never be bettered. Hue then could be championed as the face of the "Greatest Loser Ever", if he's not already he then could be an internet meme sensation.
