Since Cowher coached John Kuhn that is quite a statement

As for the Hines avatar, I did the same as soon as he was released. A lot of fans have, actually. Going to miss him.
Will do! I will miss him too. Hope we keep/get some classy guys like himself! And I thank coach Tomlin for the amazing amount of class he has. Trust me, it means a lot when you live in Ohio! The Browns fans here are down right TURABLE! lol!

The time has finally come; Aaron Smith, injured the last 3 yrs. Kemo, the dude was a head case, no discipline at all. Ward, I love the guy but at $4M a year? C'mon Man! I think they should also cut ties with Casey Hampton too; $8.1M against the cap this year alone, he's not worth that. James Farrior, they have been loyal to James long enough, the Steelers are making the right moves at the right time. I Love This Organization.

I know, right?! They thought Colt McCoy was their answer. lol. What a flop! How about get a reciever who know how to catch, with TWO HANDS!

They were freaking out when Harrison layed him out. That's what bugs me about their fans...everything is a "cheap shot" to them! Just because them ole Brownies can't play NFL-skill football.

So many shootings and crap go down in Cleveland, and so many people here try to defend the city. That and they're also like "what's wrong with you, root for your home team!'

Really? Not in a million years!! Plus, it's a "family thing" they don't understand

I agree with MOST of that. We NEED these changes if we want to see another superbowl anytime soon. Hats off to the Rooney family!

im not certain he has lost any more of a step thatn london fletcher who is the same age, led the league in tackles last season, and made his 3rd consecutive pro-bowl (after continuously getting snubbed his entire career).

theyre just asked to do different things in different systems.

james by no means is washed up.
C'mon Tony...37 years old be realistic!

I don't care if he's fifty, he nearly led the team in tackles last year.

The only downside to him is when he's in coverage. He get's to the QB went sent at him, and he's a TRUE locker room and emotional leader of this team. I almost hope he stays and Foote goes. Wouldn't be the first time
