Yes, I wanted to wait a little bit on the Kellen thing. There is a temptation not to blame anyone for the accident -- anyone who knows my recent history would understand why I feel that way -- but there are other reasons.
Kellen Winslow was not a selection by the current Browns management. It's hard to blame them.
It's hard to blame Butch Davis for Winslow. He's a top athlete, no question. Yes, he had some character ... no, call them attitude problems. But Davis had to think he was worth it.
Kellen Winslow has a pretty good pedigree. His father is a Hall of Famer, and one would think Kellen Sr. would ingrain, a sense of dedication and understanding about how fragile health is. I would have thought Junior would have been careful coming off an injury.
But he wasn't. He's young, rich and reckless, and a lot of kids would feel invincible.
I'm not ready to give up on Kellen yet though. Call it blind optimism. In Cleveland, what other choice is there?
