Someone Needs To Give This Reddit User That Predicted The Browns Trade For Brock Osweiler A Front Office Job
Actual trade, today:
Suggested trade, 18 days ago:
Nope. I simply don't believe it. How could I? This type of move is unprecedented in the NFL. That's why I am calling bullshit here. And by that, I don't mean that I think this Reddit user is some evil genius with the ability to retroactively manipulate time stamps. By that, I mean that this kind of out-the-the-box thinking had to originate somewhere other than the front office that gladly offered Brock Osweiler's broke ass 72 million over 4 years after nothing more than seven exceedingly average NFL starts.
If I had to guess what took place here I would say that Texans GM Rick Smith stayed up late drinking warm gin out of the bottle by the light of his computer screen and drunkenly started searching for ways to undue the calamity that he was responsible for just one year prior. I bet he bookmarked every loophole the worldwide web had to offer in an effort to save his job. I can just imagine him sitting there squinting out of one eye and shooting a "you up?" text to Cleveland's GM Sashi Brown to see if he could catch him in a moment of weakness and get him to agree to take on a contract that would be a goddamn cinderblock tied to the foot on any team that was actually attempting to stay above water.
That's right. I have so little faith in the front office that made sure Brock Osweiler was set for life financially.that I am more willing to believe that some random reddit user unintentionally incepted this trade proposal into their mind via a late night 'Google' search that probably read something like"brock wtf trade". You can call it unreasonable, but if your reputation was tied to the play of Brock Osweiler then I guarantee you would have left no message board unexplored in trying to unload him. Hell, if I had to watch him perform in primetime just one more time then I may have started shoring up on the collective bargaining agreement in search of ways to get his ass off my television.
Is it crazy to think that General Managers in charge of multi-million dollar organizations aren't above using the internet to help them do their job? Only as crazy as 'Crossfire912' was when he suggested that the Browns spend $18 million on a 3rd round pick, and I'm pretty sure he deserves the lead spot on the podium when the Texans announce their inevitable acquisition of Tony Romo.
P.S. Almost spot-on, but who could predict that Cleveland would try to flip a bad quarterback elsewhere without watching him suck on their dime first?
