SportsFilter: The Saturday Huddle:

A place to discuss the sports stories that aren't making news, share links that aren't quite front-page material, and diagram plays on your hand. Remember to count to five Mississippi before commenting in anger.

Santa unable to visit northeastern Ohio tonight. Onboard navigation systems are not reliable in that region due to local alteration of the Earth's magnetic field caused by the Browns' win.

Also, Cuyahoga County airspace is currently congested with flying pigs, none of which received tower clearance before takeoff.

Dammit, I knew this was the week to pick them, and I picked SD anyway...congrats to the Browns on being just another 1-15 team, and preserving the Lions as the best bad team ever!

How Browns is it that they can't even be the worst team ever correctly.

Similarly, the Niners aren't even good at vying for league worst. They saw what happened in Cleveland and promptly went out and took care of business on the coast.

The speed with which the NFC West has gone from the extremes of suckage to awesome and back to suckage again has been truly breathtaking.
