What is TWS?

Hey, tec here. You may (or may not) know me from Pittsburgh Sports and Mini Ponies, my primary sportsblog. I started TWS after Brady Quinn started dropping in the draft like the overrated player that he is. After Miami passed on Quinn for Tedd Ginn Jr. at number 9, Quinn could be seen mouthing the now-famous phrase, "That was surprising." I guess Cleveland felt bad for not taking the kid at number 3, instead opting for Joe Thomas. They traded up and took Quinn at an Aaron Rodgers-like 22. As a Pittsburgh sports fan, watching rivals make huge mistakes always pleases me. Some Cleveland Browns' brass said:

that if the Browns are truly going to turn everything around,
April 28, 2007 will be a day that's forever highlighted in Browns

Wow. Highlight the word "if." Let's look at the Brown's recent 1st round draft history:

2004: Kellen Winslow, TE from Miami - Whiny bitch.
2005: Braylon Edwards, WR from Michigan - Any team's 2nd best wide receiver.
2006: Kamerion Wimbley, DE from Florida State - Could be nasty.
2007: Joe Thomas, OT from Wisconsin - Actually a good pick.
2007: Brady Quinn, QB from Notre Dame - Some competition for Charlie Frye in the "Mediocre QB Department."

Great way to "turn around" the franchise. The last QB Cleveland took in the first round was Tim Couch. He's no longer in football.

This blog isn't going to be updated nearly as regularly as PSaMP, but it will be a place to heckle opponents and rivals of my favorite teams, the Steelers, Pirates and Penguins.

Thank you, Cleveland, for giving me one more reason to loathe you.
