    I doubt Cleveland is having second thoughts on Haden in the first round.

  2. John S says:

    Haden is having insane production, why would Cleveland wait so long to get him on the field? Based on last nights performance there may be a lot of Gators wearing super bowl rings in February.

  3. J Boof says:

    What happened with Brandon James? I thought he was doing pretty well.
