This week we talked about the Browns’ loss to the Packers, but we branched out a bit. We talked about Robert Redford, movie criticism and passing pop culture down generationally. We also talked about Scott Raab coming home to speak at Cleveland State and also the Happy Dog on Wednesday night at 7:30 PM with Zac Jackson as well.
Here’s the email I sent to Scott in anticipation of our podcast this morning.
We’ll talk about the Browns. Specifically, I think I can say without hyperbole that the Browns should cut Brandon Weeden. It seems inconceivable that Michael Lombardi could be involved with the Browns cutting Bernie Kosar and yet can’t find it in this iteration of the Browns to cut Weeden loose.
I really want to talk about Robert Redford. I read your movie review of All is Lost. Unfortunately I didn’t catch the profile from April. Something you said in the review surprised me.
Call it a product of our age difference, but I had no idea that Redford wasn’t a critical success his entire career. Obviously I believe you, but I think it’s fascinating that the translation of Redford from my father to me was nothing but positive and so I always just assumed he was like a George Clooney who was both popular and critically acclaimed.
Is there an actor today that lines up with Redford in that way where he takes a little from the critics, but time will erase almost all of the criticism? I have one in mind, but I’ll save it and run it by you “live” on the air.
That’s all I’ve got right now. I am looking to read some of the post-game quotes from the Browns to see if they have anything to say for themselves.
