Brady Quinn? Check.
Trent Richardson? Check.
Johnny Manziel? Check. (still relevant and still have faith though)
Those are my jersey skeletons hanging in my closet.
Go to the Muni Lot for one game this season and you’ll see the majority of these jerseys being worn proudly. I think in some way it’s a badge of honor among Browns fans. Like it’s a club of people with the mindset of “Yeah I spent $100 on this jersey but fuck it, I’ll support this team no matter if my jersey is relevant or not.” You see someone wearing a Quincy Morgan jersey and it’s hilarious, but then you realize you’re wearing a Jake Delhomme jersey and you can both laugh about how dumb you both are.
This brings up a conversation I just had this past weekend. My friend was in the market for a new jersey and we started discussing his options. Aside from Joe Haden, whose jersey would you go out and buy right now? Remember you have to consider their age, position, contract, production, etc. I said Kruger, Shelton, Hartline, or Crow. He decided on Gipson. Solid pick but before I agree with it let’s hope Gip is here for a couple years before I even think about dropping the cash to buy his jersey.
