Josh Gordon and His Legion of Doom.


Cutting ties in a "Knee jerk" reaction to Josh Gordon's latest speeding/Marijuana incident won't solve the problem at wide receiver. As sad a case as Gordon has been with his numerous off season exploits, he is still capable of turning his life around especially; after having 12 months or more of thinking about how his life would be without those nice weekly game checks that provide him that customized luxury car he parties in or all the "rad" tattoos he could ink on his body if all that cash suddenly disappeared due to his recklessmess and immaturity.

Let's look at how some other teams around the league are treating their current "problem child" players.

In Baltimore: we not only have Ray Rice....now infamous for beating his soon to be wife unconscious in a hotel elevator, they also have other big name players like Jacoby Jones being cited for public drunkeness. Will either of these players be cut....highly unlikely.

In San Francisco; we have the curious case of Aldon Smith, who is on par talent wise to our Josh Gordon. Are they disowning him? ...no, of course not. That's what modern NFL teams do with their talented but troubled superstars. They wait them out in hopes they will finally come to their senses.

As much as we'd like to kick Gordon to the curb for excessive stupidity, we would risk him returning to the league with another team that like to take on questionable players in hopes to rehabilitate them all the while they may contribute to the success of their teams...Cincinnati comes to mind( PAC Man Jones, Vontaze Burfict etc.). I don't think any of us would like to face a 25-26 year old, finally matured, Josh Gordon twice a year, or even once a year in say: Oakland for that matter.

So sadly: the right choice for the Browns is to ride out this next year with Gordon and hope that he sees what it would be like without the money and the fame and hope he finally understands how much he stands to lose if he can't mature as a human being.
