After all of Mike Leach’s delicate complaining about how Eric Mangini and the Browns organization scuttled the draft status of Michael Crabtree, it seems that the Mangenius has turned the table on the old Pirate of the Plains. The Browns have invited Graham Harrell to rookie mini-camp. Harrell went undrafted and does not have a guaranteed contract but having one foot in the door in the NFL is better than anything in Lubbock.
Unfortunately, Harrell is caught in an awkward spot. He is torn, torn! between his love for his old coach and his desire to not really have to work for a living. A better man than I would take the high road, but if Zim were the one in his shoes: “Well I smiled a lot and nodded when I played for him, but that man is bat-shit crazy. For God’s sake he thought acupuncture cured his life long asthma and you know he has a fake pirate skeleton in his office, right? I glad to be in Cleveland playing for such a storied team, in the best city in the United States, with the best fans in the NFL, and such a magnificent leader. What’s that coach? I got your dry cleaning right here … medium starch, just like you wanted. No, no its on me.”
