The Browns 2012 First Round Draft and Terry Pluto

Cleveland Plain Dealer’s Terry Pluto kills me. He has no objectivity when it comes to the Browns. Fan first, writer second. Here’s why:
On Trent Richardson: He has “pistons for legs.”
He said the same thing about William Green and we all know how that turned out.
On the trade to get Richardson: “This was a masterful move for Browns General Manager Tom Heckert, who was able to grab an impact running back without giving up a second- or third-round choice.”
Please tell me Terry, how he is an impact running back without ever having played a down in the NFL. I know you are excited but at least feign some objectivity.

Again on Richardson: … “they at least have come away with one future star in Richardson.”
Oh Christ, who is taking bets on this? Tim Couch was going to be a star, Willie Green was going to be a star, Colt McCoy was going to be a starter, blah blah blah. Hope springs eternal for fans but you think Pluto would have a smidge of objectivity.

And oh by the way, remember Terry Pluto loving Derek Anderson and his “big arm?” Check this out:

A different dog with the same fleas.
The Browns do the same thing over and over and over and expect a different result.
Sometimes the truth hurts Terry Pluto, every Browns fan should know that.
