Red Right 88

In Cleveland, hope dies last

Quick thoughts on a slow Tuesday

Apparently South Beach isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, as LeBron James now says he’s not having any fun.

I guess that’s what happens when you’ve already lost six games this season. By comparison, last year’s Cavs team didn’t lose its sixth game until Dec. 8; two years ago it was Jan. 4.

Maybe you shouldn’t have left home then.

Larry Fitzgerald is learning the hard way what Browns fans already knew: that Derek Anderson is a lousy quarterback:

“I’ve tasted the caviar now, so eating out of the garbage is not where I want to be,” Fitzgerald told Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic.

While we are on the subject of quarterbacks, as we wrote back in training camp, the Browns are fortunate to actually have depth at the position.

In addition to the situation in Arizona with Derek Anderson and undrafted rookie Max Hall, the Dolphins were forced to start Tyler Thigpen last week, the Titans are planning to start rookie Rusty Smith this week, the 49ers have resorted to Troy Smith and, after going through Matt Moore and Jimmy Clausen, Carolina turned to Brian St. Pierre last week.

So while the ankle injuries that are plaguing the Browns quarterbacks are absurd, it’s good to know the position is in capable hands.

Speaking of the Browns opponent for Sunday, apparently the Panthers are the greatest 1-9 team in the history of the National Football League.
