The title of this thread has perhaps become hyperbole, but, when I stumble across something like this, I just have to shake my head in disgust. I mean KFFL represents USA Today! Here is what they wrote in the player profile for Saints RB Mark Ingram (http://www.kffl.com/player/22271/nfl/mark-ingram#ixzz34B63afyQ):
 
"Ingram came on strong at the tail end of last season, but the problem is Khiry Robinson was even better" (emphasis mine). ARE YOU FRIGGIN' KIDDING ME? Obviously we know who the writer of this has a... for. I too sort of like Robinson, mind you, but this claim is not even close to being borne out in the numbers! Worse yet, it is being made in a "player profile", not in an article which would require of the writer an argument to support said position.
 
I HATE the "journalist nudge"!!!

So, in an update on Bills' RB Bryce Brown Rotoworld.com writes,
 
Brown had skipped previous 'voluntary' workouts following the birth of his child.  It's absurd that a player could draw criticism for skipping supposedly voluntary May practices for the birth of his child, but so is life in the modern NFL.
 
Are you kidding me, especially just a day after Memorial Day?  You know how many babies are born to soldiers while they are away on deployment, away from their families?  The scene is almost cliche.  Meanwhile, these guys are making hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars to keep their bodies in shape and work a little over half the year.  Yea, a little criticism for a guy making a boatload of cash who is now fighting for reps seems totally fair, even warranted.  I only missed one morning class when my daughter was born and one day of high school when my dad passed.  I taught a class through what was believed by the doctors to be a "mild" TIA.  The last line of the above should read, "... and so is life in modern-day America, where we are becoming a bunch of fairies." And, we are discussing concussions in football?  We might as well just ball up into a fetal position now and call it a day.  It is over.  The new face of heroism in America: Bowe Bergdahl.

This is one of the more misleading/disjointed headlines and write-ups ever.  Out of Rotoworld...
 
Browns don't envision Duke Johnson as starter
 
According to the Akron Beacon Journal, the Browns are "not relying on (Duke) Johnson to be their starter right away."

Beat writer Nate Ulrich says the Browns would like Johnson "to eventually develop into the (lead-back) role," but he won't open the season as Cleveland's first-team back. The Browns are intrigued with Johnson's receiving skills, however, and he remains set up for a large role. The team has repeatedly likened Johnson to Giovani Bernard, who had 226 touches as a rookie in 2013.
 
So, actually, what you are saying is that they DO "envision" him as their starter!
