So, last week's Sports Illustrated was a fantasy football preview issue with new Browns running back Jamal Lewis on the cover. I was giddy and picked it up. I had heard that SI writer Peter King had spent some time at Cleveland training camp. I was expecting a great article about what's happening in Berea.
The article featured profiles of four NFL training camps - Pittsburgh, Buffalo, Miami, and Indianapolis. Huh? No Cleveland? The article contained exactly a half a sentence about the Browns. Here it is in its entirity, "Other times it is a newly added veteran player, perhaps Jamal Lewis of the Browns or Matt Schaub of the Texans or Nate Clemens of the 49ers, who changes a team's fortunes."
So ... why is Jamal Lewis on the cover? Why is Browns lineman Ryan Tucker featured on the table of contents page? I don't get it. I feel baited and switched.
