Are you kidding me? 7 games featuring ranked teams playing each other? The obvious choice for game of the day is Georgia-Auburn, but don’t sleep on that Notre Dame-Miami feature presentation. It has all the elements I’m looking for to be a classic. All the rappers will be on the sidelines. Everyone will be wearing turnover chains. The stadium will be filled up for once. Buckle up because that one is going past midnight.
Josh Gordon, who is about to come back to the NFL after yet another suspension, sat down with GQ for an interview where he definitely opened up about his life with booze, weed and pills.
You know the basic Gordon story: Can’t stay sober, fails tests at an alarming rate, incredible skills, Cleveland Browns best player that never plays. If you think what Gordon had to say about Cleveland will scare off Browns fans, you’re nuts. These people are already in a bad relationship. This is like an estranged wife talking shiit about her husband. One thing leads to another and they make up. Browns fans actually like being talked to like this. Real Talk Express. See below.
How many of your games would you estimate that you had something in your system for?
Every game. Probably every game of my career.
What about college? I think you know how he responded to that question.
How much did all of the noise and criticism get to you?
A lot. Every day. That’s why I had to move out of Cleveland. I went to Gainesville specifically because I thought there’d be nobody there that would know who I was. Living in Cleveland, sometimes it could be a nightmare. I’ve been harassed, had drinks thrown at me. I’ve been [followed] in the grocery store, heckled everywhere. At the games, people harassed and heckled my brothers and my mom. [My] brothers got into fights in the stands. Cars [have] been jumped on. Somebody dented the hood of the car. Had to sue a guy and get the money back cause he damaged the car. People are throwing money, pennies, to break the windows. So Cleveland was rough, man.
After the news broke we started getting comments from Gordon’s camp and his business manager came out of the gates HOT with these statements. First, he started off super humble with this quote calling Gordon the best football player in the world. Yes, the world.
Text from Michael Johnson, business manager for #Browns WR Josh Gordon: “The best football player in the world is back in the NFL.”
Browns fans may be miserable over the fact that their team is 0-8 (and passed up another franchise quarterback in Deshaun Watson), but there’s one person who can always turn those frowns upside down — Josh Gordon!
No. Josh isn’t being stalked around The Land again, nor has he filed for reinstatement into the league. However! He did drop an IG story today featuring himself working out in Browns colors — not to mention lyrics about LeBron returning to Cleveland. Get hyped!
Is Josh’s reinstatement application just around the corner?!?! Honestly who knows at this point. Obsessively monitor Adam Schefter’s Twitter… or check back with us in another month when the Browns are 0-12 and Josh randomly gets fans all excited again with some social media post.
It’s last Sunday before Halloween so I was expecting some of these players that aren’t total robots and actually have a little bit of personality to break out some costumes for the games today. But so far it’s been pretty dry. It seems like most players around the league are all about business today, just like Goodell likes.
The only ones I’ve seen so far are Kyle Long and Josh Sitton, who went full Dumb & Dumber this morning. The bright orange and blue suits are always a classic.
Three games is way too small of a sample to call a team’s season, but I’m going to go ahead and bury the Phoenix Suns anyway. They have a nice collection of young talent for sure, but that group has given up 124, 132, and 130 points in their first three games of the season. Honestly I haven’t seen defense this bad in a while:
I’m trying to think of a succinct way of describing the plot of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s new TV show, Future Man, starring Josh Hutcherson, and this is all I’ve got: Hutcherson is a janitor at a lab and ends up traveling back in time with two warriors from the future (who are also somehow in a video game he plays?) to stop his boss at the lab from ever getting herpes. Because the herpes cure his boss eventually discovers goes on to destroy mankind. Mmhmm.
As, um, out there as it sounds, the trailer is pretty promising. Not only that, but the cast is killer: Hutcherson, Ed Begley Jr., Happy Endings‘s Eliza Coupe, Preacher‘s Derek Wilson, and more. To celebrate the release of the trailer at New York Comic-Con, Rogen tweeted, «Here’s the trailer for FUTURE MAN, our new TV show about time travel and saving the world and also STD’s!» Honestly, that’s a TV show tagline I can get behind.
All episodes of Future Man drop on Hulu on Nov. 14.
As you might have heard, Josh Gordon has been spotted around Cleveland this week and Browns fans are losing their minds over him potentially applying for reinstatement. This is where Browns fans are at through four weeks — obsessing over a guy who hasn’t played in an NFL game since 2014.
Josh took to Snap Tuesday afternoon to let Browns fans know he’s onto their creeping. He’s like 80-20 amused and fearful of his life:
We here at BC HQ have no doubts weirdo fans will continue to stalk Gordon around town, so we’re going to go ahead and recommend they do it in this Browns 1993 Ford Ranger. At the very least this lets Josh know you’re tailing him.
93 Ford Ranger 700 or best offer runs and drives has new windshield new U-joints had four brand new tires but the person that installed them rip the side wall so it has three good little work truck are perfect for tailgating serious inquires only
Word out of Disney is that Alex Morgan and her friends were kicked out of an Epcot bar after getting rowdy. From Page Six: The Orange County Sheriff’s Office confirmed to Page Six that Morgan, 28, plus MLS players Giles Barnes and Donny Toia, were “trespassed from Disney on Oct. 1st” after an alleged eight-hour drinking binge.
Deputies then saw Morgan, who was escorted outside Space Ship Earth, and was “yelling, screaming … she appeared to be highly impaired … [she made] a loud verbal statement that she knows the Orlando swat team.”
Tried to tell you guys for years that she’s super fun and this just keeps the theory alive.
Browns fans – suffering from an 0-4 start, Kenny Britt’s brick hands, one of the youngest QBs in NFL history, blah, blah, blah – are looking for answers and an old friend is on their minds thanks to Snaps that seem to indicate that Josh Gordon is back in town, sending /r Browns fans into a CSI-like frenzy.
There are at least two threads right now on /r where Browns fans are trying to figure out Josh Gordon’s Snap locations. There’s definitely an Ohio flag in one of his Monday Snaps. The chicken and waffles snap is believed to be from a Cleveland hotspot.
Hmm, so what’s going on here? It’s odd that this popped up on PFT this afternoon. Maybe something is about to go down and Gordon needs to be in town because he’s about to get reinstated and play for the winless Browns. IT’S HAPPENING CLEVELAND!
Per source, Browns WR Josh Gordon has not yet applied for reinstatement.
