The Romeo clock is ticking...

Posted on: November 4, 2008 2:13 pm

According to NFL radio commentator Carl Banks (didn't he play for Romeo?) the Romeo Crennel clock is officially ticking.  Brady is now Romeo's 4th QB and how many QB's are coaches allotted before a change is made?

Romeo looks very uncomfortable on the sideline.  Or at least he did last week in the 4th quarter.  Was he having a gall bladder attack?  Indigestion? 

This is the right move to make but I don't understand the timing.  2 weeks ago in Washington I was wearing my #10 jersey, (it was a Kelly Holcomb jersey, but I removed the name) and a Browns fan came up to me at Fedex Field and said, "Two weeks".  I guess I looked at him with my normal puzzled look and he explained, "two more weeks before you boy goes in "referring to Quinn.  I guess he was right.

I campaigned for Romeo to be fired after the 2006 season because I feel either you have it or you don't.  Romeo is a good man an has shown a steady influence in tough times, but I just don't feel has has what it takes to take them to the next level.  Not the fire, not the skills and quite possible not the personality.  Only time will tell..

The Romeo clock is ticking...

Romeo may not be the guy, but hopefully Braylon Edwards can hold on to the ball for Quinn. He leads the league with 12 drops. The other change Crennel may want to consider is giving more playing time to Jerome Harrison. The guy gets yards when he touches the ball, he has for the past couple of years. Jamal L is a monster but he's been around for almost 10 years and he's taken quite a pounding. He's not the guy who rushed for 2K in Baltimore 5 years ago.

Hopefully Quinn works out. He's the future, like it or not, so at least you get to see what he's got now.
