Will he or won’t he? If he does, how effective can he be? With a healthy Browns defense as healthy as they’ve been all year seemingly every week, does it matter? All these questions and more are applicable to this week’s matchup between the Browns and the Redskins. Most importantly, the Browns have won three in a row headed into this game. The Redskins are riding a four game winning streak. If you’d told me at the beginning of the season that both teams would be riding real, bona fide win streaks headed into this game, I would have questioned your sanity. And another question. Will you even be able to pretend to imagine what life might have been like for Browns fans this season had the team landed RG3 and been sold to Jimmy Haslam in the same year? Would the team have sold if Lerner had somehow landed RG3 as the first completely legitimate QB prospect since Brady Quinn’s flameout? Never mind. Just fill out the survey.
