Default Winslows career over?

Courtesy of PFT.

The 'career over' angle seems dramatic, but I would fully agree with the stance that playing an injured Winslow in an already dead season was a very bad idea.

Its the type of decision that keeps the bad teams...well....bad.

Quote:
In response to a tip that we recently received regarding the condition of Browns tight end Kellen Winslow following microfracture surgery on the knee that he initially injured when he made like Evel Knievel in May 2005, we've checked with a couple of our sources and we've determined that the powers that be in Cleveland are not counting on Winslow to be available for the 2007.

"There really is a good chance he won't play this season," a league source told us.

The bigger question, as the source pointed out, is why didn't the Browns shut Winslow down earlier in the 2006 season? They were out of the playoff hunt, and yet Winslow (to the pleasure of fantasy owners only) continued to play despite being listed as questionable nearly every week due to his knee.

"I would have made him have the surgery earlier to make sure he'd be ready for this upcoming season," said the source.

But there are also whispers that, in the wake of the procedure for creating scar tissue that will simulate knee cartilage, Winslow might never be able to play again.

Stay tuned.

Yeah, but in Brownieland the laws of reality dont work. Like when they lose in our world, they win in their world.

TY Fansince, I'm thinking about writing a book. After all, this mentality has most people perplexed, so much so that they dont feel like researching it at just call it stupidity.
THE WORLD WILL FINALLY KNOW THE TRUTH!!!!!!
(But then again, that would mean I'd be strange enough to spend my free time writing a book about the browns, which is an obvious best-seller, but still is pretty lame)

No, but I've heard of "Bizarro Stuntman" and it pretty much covers Kellen's career, or in reality's case lack there of.
