Jason Cole's DL Rankings Irk Browns Fans

There are a few people that piss off Browns fans. Art Modell is one of them. Apparently, another one of them is Jason Cole, writer for Yahoo Sports. On Dawgs By Nature, fans were less than pleased with Cole’s 29th-place ranking for Cleveland.

I remember getting ripped a couple of years ago when I had the gumption to say that Browns nose tackle Shaun Rogers wasn’t all that good. Talented? No question. But really good? Not really. Rogers only plays hard about half the time and suffered season-ending injuries to his lower left leg and ankle last year. He is sort of like the latest version of Sam Adams, a guy who could be dominant when he felt like it, but usually didn’t feel like it.

Clearly, Cole hasn’t watched much of Rogers since he came to Cleveland. He also fails to mention two big stories regarding the Browns’ defensive line this year: the possibilities of Rogers moving to DE and Ahtyba Rubin becoming the team’s starting NT.
