He didn't even have an excuse

Now that Bob Hallen has officially retired, Savage doesn't mind spilling the dirt. And the real story is, Hallen wasn't even hurt, he just decided to throw in the towel.

I guess its good that this happened now. Do you really want a guy who is so unconcerned about screwing the teammates who depend on him to start for you at center? Savage made a mistake with this guy. Maybe he'll head out and party with that flake Ross Verba.

Another intersting item out of this:
The Browns also thought they had a deal this week with Miami for backup center Seth McKinney, but he suffered a back injury Tuesday and underwent season-ending surgery on Thursday.

So, you can kind of say that we've already lose THREE centers for the season.

Savage sums it up pretty well:
"We've gone from having the best center situation in the NFL to one of the worst."
Welcome to Cleveland, Phil. Hope that you can keep up your "there's no such thing as a jinx" front. But to do so, you might not want to talk with Gary Baxter, and his 3-4 week injury.

I'm kind of at a loss for words over all of this. I was of savage's opinion that we had the best center in football to anchor a pretty good OL.

word is that we're still after that Fraley guy but we're pretty much at the eagles mercy as to what we have to give up.

Hallen is a pussy. why couldnt he just man up about it instead of lying? hometown pride my ass..

was baxter ever hurt when he was with that other team?
