On Tuesday [url=https://www.brownsfanshop.com]https://www.brownsfanshop.com[/url] , the prosecution began introducing its case-in-chief against former NFL player Kellen Winslow II. The prosecution may want a do-over.The witnesses included Jane Doe No. 1, the first of five women alleging that Winslow committed sexual offenses against her. Jane Doe No. 1 accuses Winslow of rape.She says that she was hitchhiking on March 17, 2018, and that a person who called himself “Dominique” gave her a ride. His demeanor soon turned, and he told her that if she did not have sex with him, he would kill her.The details were graphic and at times confusing, as the duo left his car, climbed a fence in search of a place to engage in sexual activity, climbed back over the fence, and then returned to his car. The testimony, which featured via the live stream at CourtTV.com only the voice of the alleged victim [url=https://www.brownsfanshop.com/customized]Browns Customized Color Rush Jerseys[/url] , lacked the kind of raw emotion that would be expected from a person who had been forced (supposedly under threat of death) to engage in various forms of painful sexual activity with Winslow.Then came the cross-examination, and attorney Marc Carlos in a calm but forceful way called the bulk of her allegations into question. Dan Wetzel of Yahoo.com has the details. Jane Doe No. 1 repeatedly admitted that she had easy opportunities to easily get away from her assailant and/or to seek help from others, but she never tried. She also was caught in various inconsistencies between past statements given to authorities and her in-court testimony, and she apparently lied about her history of alcohol consumption, opening the door to Carlos to challenge her claim that she hasn’t had a drink in three decades by proving that she has been arrested ELEVEN TIMES for public intoxication. (The presiding judge, per Wetzel, allowed only five of the arrests to be used before the jury.)“You told the jury you haven’t drank in 30 years,” Carlos said at one point. “That is a lie.”“I haven’t drank today,” she replied.Winslow’s defense apparently won’t be contending that no sexual activity occurred, since his DNA was found on Jane Doe No. 1 when she reported the incident four days later. However, the notion that the sex was not consensual will be difficult for the prosecution to prove based on the deeply flawed testimony of Jane Doe No. 1.As Wetzel notes [url=https://www.brownsfanshop.com/t-shirts]Cleveland Browns T-Shirts[/url] , this doesn’t mean that Winslow will be acquitted. Four other victims will be testifying. But the first impression created by the prosecution was not a good one, to say the least.

Math can be hard. Two times eight and four times four both equal 16, and that’s how many regular-season games the playoff-bound Browns must navigate, which means that’s how many games John Dorsey must account for on his risk balance sheet.Colt McCoy weighs in on Baker Mayfield (ohio.com) - Young Baker came out smokin’. Watching last year’s No. 1 overall draft pick brought a complicated smile to the face of old Colt. Before boarding one of the four luxury buses chartered to take the Washington Redskins away after a 30-10 loss to the Browns on Thursday, Colt McCoy indulged a writer with observations about fellow Texan Baker Mayfield.Damon Sheehy-Guiseppi, who lied his way into a Browns tryout, scored a return touchdown in his NFL debut (Deadspin) - Late in Cleveland’s preseason win over Washington last night, rookie return specialist Damon Sheehy-Guiseppi fielded a punt and zipped mostly untouched, 86 yards, all the way to the opposite end zone. Despite the inherent meaninglessness of the game and the already gaudy scoreline [url=https://www.brownsfanshop.com/hats]https://www.brownsfanshop.com/hats[/url] , Sheehy-Guiseppi’s Browns teammates dogpiled him and celebrated like they’d just scored in a playoff game. Even Freddie Kitchens got excited!PFF ReFocused: Cleveland Browns 30, Washington Redskins 10 (PFF) - Cleveland Browns‘ Rashard Higgins and Garrett Gilbert both played at a high level in the team’s 30-10 win over the Washington Redskins on Thursday night. Washington safety Jeremy Reaves and wide receiver Darvin Kidsy had some highlight plays in the contest, but their efforts weren’t enough to help the team to a win.NFL:Antonio Brown-Raiders saga has reached new levels of crazy (SF Gate) - Antonio Brown has yet to play a single game for the Oakland Raiders, but has apparently created a career’s worth of drama in just a few months. The wide receiver hasn’t been practicing after suffering severe foot blistering that was reportedly caused by going into a cryotherapy machine without proper footwear, and the saga took another weird turn on Friday.Giants do not owe Eli Manning anything (NY Daily News) - Pat Shurmur has repeated the line several times over the last two days regarding his QB situation: “Nothing has changed.” What that means for the Giants these days, and over the last 14 years, is that Eli Manning will be under center in Week 1, without any real competition — even if Daniel Jones continues to play well in preseason.Andrew Luck still not comfortable with calf pain (ESPN) - The wait for Andrew Luck’s return to the practice field will extend for at least three more practices. Luck and Indianapolis Colts coach Frank Reich talked Friday morning, and it was determined that the quarterback still is not ready to return to practice thanks to his ongoing calf injury.Bills trade Eli Harold to Eagles for Ryan Bates (Yahoo Sports) - The Bills traded defensive end Eli Harold to the Eagles in exchange for offensive lineman Ryan Bates, the teams announced Friday.
