I think it is worth noting that none of this is really confirmed, so for all we know the next few paragraphs you are about to read could have been sent by the cast of "Veggie Tales".

But apparently, the boys over at Deadspin got an e-mail yesterday from a Browns fan that seems to have forgotten his meds and typed up an "angry" e-mail to general manager and "Quail Man" impersonator Phil Savage. The e-mail, while extremely deep and well thought out, didn't seem all that bad. Trust me on this.
You are easily the worst GM in the NFL. Chud, Crennel and Tucker should
NOT have jobs. How the hell do you play prevent defense the entire
game? How do you NOT use Jerome Harrison more? Why the hell would you
throw the ball with 6 minutes left? This is officially a regime that is
worse than Butch Davis'. By the way, just like last week - this email
was written while the Browns still had the lead.
Supposedly, (and it is worth noting there has been no confirmation on this from anyone) Savage sent back a short response with a littttttle bit of an F-bomb.

Go root for Buffalo-f#@* you-

While it probably isn't the most professional way to handle the situation, I'm sure Savage lands a lot of hell week in and week out, and to come back with such a short, curt and awesome response could be worthy of a standing-blogger ovation. Honestly, "go root for Buffalo" followed up by the best response in the human language?

Mike Florio at PFT has some insider information that isn't so sure this is really Savage. According to a source, Savage isn't really the f-bomb kind of guy. You know, he's one of those. Nevertheless, it is always fun to think that even the most successful (and I'm using that term extremely loose) lose it from time to time. Just think, if this trend continues we're four days away from video of Steve Jobs going "Office Space" fax machine on the new Blackberry Storm. It should be fantastic.
