So, how bout that Brian Hoyer, huh?

Two weeks after the trade of Trent Richardson (2012 third overall pick) to the Colts in exchange for a 2014 first round pick, the Browns find themselves tied for lead of their division.

Football is a crazy sport sometimes.

The Buffalo Bills, on the other hand, find themselves 2-2 as they look to find some winning consistency. Rookie quarterback EJ Manuel has had his flashes this season as well, and may be able to solidify a position that hasn't been very strong in Buffalo for a very long time.

Besides the news that the Buccaneers (what a dumpster fire that is) had to let Josh Freeman go, this is the biggest news of the day. And regarding Freeman--who on Earth did they think was going to trade with them when they had put themselves in a position where they had NO CHOICE but to let him go?

Sometimes I really do think I could run an NFL franchise...
