I'm a Yankee and Giant fan, and am currently watching the parade at work. This news makes me much happier.

Rouse is not good, but he's way better than CC Brown. Also getting Boley, and to a lesser extent, Canty back will really help this defense.

I knew Brown was bad, but you guys threw a parade to celebrate benching him. Impressive.

That's how New Yorkers roll. You should have seen the parade when Isiah Thomas was fired.

Mardi Gras had nothing on the parade when Thomas was fired

B Russ laughs at CC Brown.

Deep Thought was built to answer the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything. CC Brown was built to answer the question "Is it possible for a safety to be worse than Brian Russell?"

The answers were 42 and yes, respectively.

Too bad the Giants (seemingly) don't read Football Outsiders, or else they would have never signed CC Douchenozzle in the first place.

Too bad the Football Outsiders don't watch the Giants. Otherwise they never would have predicted them to finish in last place the year they won the super bowl.

"They" didn't. Barnwell did. And he does watch the Giants, what with his being a fan of theirs. But why let facts get in the way?

Barnwell wasn't the only one who picked the Giants to be the worst in the league...

but don't let facts get in the way. This comment will probably be deleted anyway because you can't say anything bad about FO, or point out the times that they were horribily 100% wrong... only the times they were right and picked some average team to be good, or some good team to be bad. Not when they pick the SB champ to be the worst in the league.

If they keep ignoring their misses long enough, maybe people will forget them eh? Only pop media get predictions wrong. FO only get predictions right.

Since when do posts get deleted unless you break a rule?

Way to make things up, and it's not even related to your point.

I saw someone call him Can't Cover Brown somewhere, which made my day (until I had to watch him play again).

Suggestions on the FO IRC this past weekend included Cut Candidate Brown, Complete Crap Brown, and a few other less polite entries.

Thank God.

At least he still has his music factory to fall back on.
