We’re talking about a former Browns fan whipping boy, of course. Whether it was to highlight supposed Browns drafting incompetence or simply just another excuse to talk about fan favorite Laurence Vickers, Marecic’s name came up early and often. The comments on the Marecic post were pretty interesting, actually.
Harv 21 said: ok, it’s a dirty job but someone’s gotta do it. Marecic:
- had a heckuva back story as a competent 2-way player.
- was never arrested and never complained bout nuthin’.
- has much brighter post-NFL career prospects then, say, Josh Gordon, what with his genuine Stanford degree.
The death watch is officially over. Godspeed, Owen. WFNY peeps: he’s gone, and Russell Branyan and David Delucci aren’t walking back through that door. Time for a new punchline guy.
Make sure you go check the rest for the thread about the worst Browns draft picks since 1999. I saw a Beau Bell reference in there, I think.
