Me during the first five minutes of the game: "Man! How am I going to pick any 'losers'?!"
Me during the rest of the game: "Man! How am I going to pick any 'winners'?!"
It's true, we had a rough night tonight. But it is preseason, and all successes and failures must be taken with a grain of salt. Preferably, that grain of salt is around the rim of a stiff margarita.
There were some bright spots, and we'll get another crack at the Eagles in a little over two weeks. In the meantime, I humbly suggest we look at tonight as the architect of a valuable to-do list. I don't think I need to remind my fellow Cleveland fans of what happens when you coast along with a fragile sense of euphoria. Losing games can be a good thing, especially when those games don't count toward your regular season record.
Not to sound like your Aunt Millie, but there really are no "losers" based on one game. However, here is a list of those who swam and those who sank in tonight's matchup.
