Jake Delhomme and Seneca Wallace both have high-ankle sprains. I joked earlier today that there’s no way the Browns would subject rookie Colt McCoy to the Steelers because we all know how that movie ends (and yep, that was the Deebo body slam game).
Well, head coach Eric Mangini admitted Monday that if McCoy did play Sunday he expects him to seize the opportunity. Which, as best I can tell, is a euphemism for “You’re a dead man, son.” And that probably explains why Cleveland signed Brett Ratliff off the Patriots’ practice squad. If I’m the Browns, I’m going with Josh Cribbs at QB and take my chances that a 2002 Texans-Steelers game breaks out.
Because otherwise things could get real ugly real quick.
(In case it wasn’t clear, the above was inspired by this. Alternative movie posters: “Death Wish”, “Death Becomes Her” … basically anything with “Death” in the title. Feel free to suggest your own.)
