    And let's start off with one of America's favorite idiots....

    Browns suspend Winslow for one game

    CLEVELAND -- The Cleveland Browns unveiled their own defensive scheme to shut down Kellen Winslow.

    The team suspended its talented, emotional tight end for one game without pay for critical comments Winslow made following Sunday's loss at Washington.

    Winslow, who spent three days at the Cleveland Clinic earlier this month because of an undisclosed illness, revealed he had a staph infection -- for the second time -- before lashing out at Browns general manager Phil Savage as the Pro Bowler's teammates dressed after their 14-11 loss to the Redskins.

    Winslow complained that the team, which has had at least six cases of staph in the past three years, asked him to conceal his illness. He also vented at Savage for not checking on him while he was in the hospital, said he felt the Browns were treating him like a "piece of meat," and said he considered requesting a trade.

    Savage shot back with a 352-word statement on Tuesday, suspending Winslow and calling his comments and behavior "unwarranted, inappropriate, and unnecessarily disparaging to our organization.

    Would the Lions take him? All the Browns need in return is Leigh Bodden.

    I figured he was due to say something dumb.

    Romo says he's out.

    Can you say NFC East basement?

    If the Cowboys established the run before he got hurt, they'd be far less worried. But instead they tried to please TO and now they have to depend on Johnson.

    I think it moved when I read that about the Cowboys.

    Winslow is a blowhard, but I think he's right in this situation, especially if the Browns really did try to hush him up.

    I think it's scandalous the Browns have had that many staph infections over that time period.

    SI's Don Banks makes the case for the Lions going 0-16:


    Their schedule for the rest of the year: Washington, at Chicago, Jacksonvile, at Carolina, Tampa Bay, Tennessee, Minny, at Indy, New Orleans, at Green Bay.

    Their best chance would seem to be Minny at home in Week 14.

    Suddenly, I might be much more inclined to watch the Lions on Thanksgiving! :D
