I thought he was dead.

You can't graft a circumcised foreskin back on; don't these idiots realize that?
2001-10-25 09:25:16 AM  
Troy aikman is available.

Go Skins! As sucky as the division is, I still think we have a shot at the division title.

Ahhhhh, the soft under-belly of the NFC east.

The Redskins are still gonna get treated like they're Kermit's biatch.

"Desperate Chiefs dig up Joe Delaney"

Where's Knute Rockne??

Let's hope the Redskins aren't so desperate enough to give Eric the ol' "Metcalf up the middle" play. Why in the world the Browns used him as their running back was beyond me. The guy was better as a receiver.

NEWS FLASH: Desperate Redskins dig up Jim Thorpe, will start this Sunday.
2001-10-25 10:24:11 AM  
Next thing you know, they'll hire Jim McMahon as their new QB. Hey, he was good once, right?

Metcalf retired from football to raise his children. He has always been available to play, but only in very specific cities under very specific circumstances...those that would allow him to continue to raise his children on a daily basis. Quite admirable.
2001-10-25 10:32:57 AM  
They were chanting Sonny...Sonny...Sonny during the game Sunday. (Sunny Jurgenson) old QB, ring of honor guy now a play by play announcer at the stadium.
2001-10-25 10:35:58 AM  
Eric Metcalf is da man. GO HORNS!
2001-10-25 10:37:09 AM  
Sammy Baugh is still alive, isn't he?
2001-10-25 10:41:08 AM  
This is so damb funny. As much money as they spent in the past few years on supper stars they are still in the toilet. Now they are bringing back Metcaf. His kids could be playing in the NFL by now.
2001-10-25 11:31:36 AM  
metcalf up the middle!
2001-10-25 11:37:55 AM  
In his day, Metcalf rocked for the Brownies.

So this is the year of bringing retired Cleveland sports figures out of deep freeze - first Julio Franco to the Atlanta Braves, now this.
2001-10-25 11:55:54 AM  
Bring Back Riggins
2001-10-25 11:57:08 AM  
no way! bring back felix fermin!
i love the way the announcer at the stadium would say
"and now....felix.............FERMIN!"
2001-10-25 12:05:55 PM  
Crill: I'm waiting for them to bring back Rocky Calavito and maybe even Lou Groza.
2001-10-25 12:23:40 PM  
Julio Franco? holy shiat.
2001-10-25 01:32:06 PM  
Gary Danielson
Andre Ware
Eric Hipple

All available...all still alive...

Maybe the Lions will want to trade Bert Emanuel for Eric Metcalf now. They could use his experience.
2001-10-25 02:11:02 PM  
I though I saw "To Tall" Jones on an Interview a year ago? Is he still avaible... It may have been a pre-recorded interview though..

They can grab Jeff George to!!!! Oh wait....

I, too, hated to hear Nev Chandler say, "Metcalfe up the middle..." but realize that this was when that bastard Art Modell had that idiot Bill Belichick in charge. All Art was trying to do was make the fans go away, so he wouldn't get as much flak for leaving town.

Well, it took a couple of years...but the Browns fans & city of Cleveland finally got to shove it up Art's a$$ last weekend!
