Something Positive: Turkey Jones

It is truly a day of mourning for Browns fans everywhere, as any last hope of a playoff berth went out the window with last night's collapse.  So in these troubling times, it is important to focus on the positives.  And while they may be tough to find, here is any easy one for any Browns fan: Turkey Jones.

The older Browns fans certainly know Turkey Jones, and I suspect that any fan with more than a peripheral interest in the Browns knows Turkey as well.  Turkey was a D-lineman for the Browns back in the 70s, and is responsible for one of the most memorable plays in Browns history, his ridiculously awesome sack of Terry Bradshaw.  If you've never seen it, or just want to relive it, the video is available at this post:

I have always heard that Turkey is a kind and very generous man, somewhat ironic considering the vicious nature of his hit on Bradshaw.  But as he it says in the post and as he has said many times, "I was just doing my job."

It seems that Turkey visited the Browns backers last night and left quite an impression on everyone there.  Lucky for them...at least there was something to take their minds off of the loss to Denver. 

Well, there was one other thing: Brady Quinn.  Yes, we lost.  And no, he wasn't perfect.  But his demeanor, his accuracy, and his pocket mobility sure left a positive impression on me.  In hopes of not viewing last night's game as a 100%, complete, and total failure (which it was), at least it looks, looks, like our 2007 1st round pick might not have been wasted.  I know it was Denver, and I'm probably grasping for straws, but Brady left me encouraged.

Everyone else?  Ugh.
