So, after all is said and done, Josh Gordon will be allowed to return to Cleveland and work within the organization, staying in shape, staying with the team and continuing his development, learning the system and preparing for week 11 against the Atlanta Falcons. He has already served 2 games of his 10 game suspension and we only have 8 more games to go. After the Ravens game on Sunday we'll be at seven games and I believe the BYE week will also serve as time served so we'll be down four games with just 6 games to go. We are starting to gel after that heart-racing win against the Saints and if we stay on track and keep in the Hunt then Cleveland will be a force to be reckoned with down the stretch and we could find ourselves in the playoff after a very long hiatus.
This time without Gordon is also good time for the team to really establish who will contribute once he comes back. Cleveland has been without a very good WR group for a long time, this will separate who will be number 2, 3 and number 4 once Flash returns. Although I don't agree with the ten game suspension, Josh appealed and lost and it is what it is. I'm just very excited for week 11 when we'll get our superstar WR back, he'll no doubt be very hungry and playing with a huge Mt. Everest sized chip on his shoulder, which bodes well for Cleveland Fans.
So, here's to Josh, and the next eight games. Stay clean, stay sharp, stay hungry, shock the world Brownies.
