Keep, Donate or Burn the Famed Browns QB Jersey?


"We hear you Browns Nation. You're tired of this jersey," say the folks at Brokaw Advertising on their Facebook page. "So are we. So, what should we do with it?" 

Brokaw has provided three potential options for the jersey which chronicles the unending string of Browns starting Quarterbacks (22 total since 1999, after Connor Shaw's start Sunday). 

1) Keep it going until the Browns make the playoffs. 

2) Auction it off and donate the proceeds to charity. 

3) Burn the thing, or destroy it in some epic, symbolic gesture.

Despite perceived fatigue (or disgust), most survey respondents have voted for option 1.
