Joe Banner is So Entirely Full of Shit

Joe Banner, who missed out on hiring Chip Kelly ostensibly because he works for the Browns, and who sword-fought with Jeffrey Lurie by way of Reuben Frank last week, told Peter King that the Browns didn't really want Kelly anyway:

"We removed ourselves from the process. We really liked Chip. He's intriguing, a very different thinker, and very smart. But you could see he was uncertain what he wanted to do. He may be in Philadelphia 10 years or longer and have a terrific career. But the fact he committed to Tampa Bay last year, backed out, then seemed all year to be leaning toward going to the NFL, then being so uncertain with us, we just felt it was too big a gamble. If there was no ambivalence, we may have offered him the job.'' 


OK, Joe. And Mitt Romney didn’t want to be President.

You removed yourself from the process like a nerdy kid in high school removed himself from a Seven Minutes in Heaven closest.

  • Kyle Scott January 21, 2013 at 1:41 pm

    I usually discount the opinions of people calling themselves “blow me.”

  • Bill January 21, 2013 at 1:41 pm

    Blow me, if hes despised so much dont bother reading the posts. I love people like you, complete douche bag

  • blow me January 21, 2013 at 1:44 pm

  • blow me January 21, 2013 at 1:46 pm

  • mac January 21, 2013 at 1:48 pm

    Banner really has a face you just want to punch.

  • face January 21, 2013 at 1:57 pm

    @”blow me”- As soon as you came to this website, you lost, regardless of your opinion. If you hate it, then go elsewhere and don’t read it. That simple. Page views=KS wins.
    Fuck Joe Banner. That is all.

  • Ray Sisom January 21, 2013 at 1:57 pm

    I enjoy your take on things and appreciate your site

  • Crossing Broad via Facebook January 21, 2013 at 1:58 pm

    Why don’t you back up your comments and say exactly who despises me

  • blow me January 21, 2013 at 2:00 pm

    I apologize, my daddy stuck his fat cock up my ass too much when I was little and now I take it out on everyone else

  • Crossing Broad via Facebook January 21, 2013 at 2:04 pm

    675,000 hits today on just 2 posts. So I guess the whole city despises me but can’t get enough

    Haters going hate crossingbroad guy.
    Pens are 2-0

  • Rhea Hughes' Veal Cutlets January 21, 2013 at 2:22 pm

    People, people, people. Can we PLEASE stop with all the personal hatred? This is supposed to be a light hearted website where people can talk, laugh, and vent about unimportant things like sport, and Rachel Reckless.
    Can we leave the toxic word “hate” for those who truly deserve it? Like Bin Laden, Adam Lanza, and Delco?

  • angelo January 21, 2013 at 2:38 pm

    hatred is bad
    hate, the word, is just a word. It describes something bad, but it isn’t bad in itself.
    and you aren’t our mother.

  • OneFlyGuy January 21, 2013 at 2:39 pm

    @vealcutlets that is the object of every single message board on the internet

  • I Hate Hipsters January 21, 2013 at 2:41 pm

    You know what they say Kyle, racism sells. At this rate, maybe you will get the Joe Conklin and Girls of Philly ads back. You should post some bikini pics of Mrs CB, that will get some page views. Hubba hubba.

  • Jill January 21, 2013 at 2:43 pm

    Comment boards are the most evil things in life

  • stinky C January 21, 2013 at 2:43 pm

    Blow me is a fat dorito fingered loser who has nothing better to do then post on blogs he ” dislikes”

  • Your Mother January 21, 2013 at 2:44 pm

    Pens Fan Who Goes To Temple And Doesn’t Know The Names Of Players On The Pens Team Or Even If They Still Play For The Pens Or Not. Just shut up.
    Blow Me, Ok.
    Rhea Hughes’ Veal Cutlets, Amen Sistas, Amen.
    Kyle, don’t listen to these scrotum sacks, they’re just jealous. And dumb as hell to boot. Now bring Mommy her D batteries and her Jack, and stop whining about it too.

  • Hugh Honey January 21, 2013 at 3:08 pm

    Read pretty much every comment on your racism post..truly a journalistic gem.

  • The Original that guy January 21, 2013 at 3:17 pm

    Banner and Roseman going at it???
    JEW FIGHT!!!!!

  • Dirty T January 21, 2013 at 4:31 pm

    Joe Banner is the man. Fuck Howie

  • Slammin Gretzky's Daughter January 21, 2013 at 5:38 pm

    Joe sounds exactly like a guy getting rejected for a date and then saying he wasn’t really interested in the girl and she’s not really all that hot anyway. I’m sure that’s something he had a lot of practice with in high school while he wasn’t getting stuffed into lockers or fulfilling his duties as treasurer of the A/V club.

  • Ryan Lochte January 21, 2013 at 5:54 pm

    Come on guys it’s MLK day

  • Frontman January 22, 2013 at 7:14 am

    …can’t we all just get along?

  • ThePhillyFlash January 22, 2013 at 7:37 am

    To anybody here who really believed Joe Banner didn’t want Chip Kelly, give me a call at 1-800-SCREW-YOU. I’ve got some prime beachfront property in Montana I’m sure you’ll be interested in.
