Matt Barkley Rant and some Bold Predictions for 2012

To quote Peter Griffin from Family Guy, “You know what really grinds my gears?” Well, what really grinds my gears are Browns fans already pulling for the 2013 draft. ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME!? I'm going to lose it if I hear one more alleged fan talk about Matt Barkley.
"You're rooting for this guy?"
I get it folks; the Browns haven’t been good since short-shorts were in style. I am fully aware of the draft blunders the Browns have had since 1999. But to already say “Fuck it, we'll get Barkley next year” is crazy. First off, those Barkley lovers out there are usually those who say we need to get Colt weapons, and then if that doesn’t work, grab Barkley. How can you have any support for your QB and Team if you think we'll get the USC wonder kid next year? I hope these people realize that in order for the Browns to get him next year, we need to only win 2-3 games. I'm not even going to mention how Matt Barkley has Brady Quinn written all over him. Oops, I guess I did. 
Why are you even rooting for the Browns then? These people are not true Cleveland fans and might-as-well root for the Bungles.
I understand we have a hard schedule. But you can’t completely give up on a team when it's only April! We still have this whole draft and a full training camp for our team to get better.
Call me crazy but I see a lot of winnable games on our schedule. Eagles week one will have as much pressure on them as a Super Bowl game. Unless the Bengals have another out-of-the-league draft I don’t see them much better than us (assuming we don’t botch this draft). The Colts have Luck, a few guys on Social Security, and literally nobody else. The Chargers always underperform on the road and against weaker teams. The Raiders and Chiefs are typical AFC West teams, and who knows, Peyton may be in a wheelchair by the time the Broncos play us. And this may be the craziest thing I’ll say; I think we can sweep the Steelers. That’s right I said it. We get them at home sandwiched between two games against the Ravens. Assuming the Ravens beat them pretty handedly, they should be down plus already looking ahead to them next week. I also don’t think they’ll be in the playoff race which is why I like our chances against them the last week of the season. Who knows?
Anyways, if you want to call yourself a Cleveland fan then have some damn pride. I really don’t think this team will only win 3 games this season. Plus, it's only April, and most importantly, we have the best fans in the world. Please stop acting like Bengals fans. Lets just root for the Browns this year and see what happens.
