Paul Finebaum is reversing course after he said, perhaps with his tongue firmly in his cheek, that the Alabama Crimson Tide could beat the Cleveland Browns.
The ESPN Radio host made the claim during his show Monday. Given how the Monday Night Football game between the New York Jets and the Arizona Cardinals turned out, however, he joked that he changed his mind.

The Jets fell to the Cardinals 28-3 Monday night to fall to 1-5 on the season. Their lone win came against the Bills in Week 2.
The Browns, meanwhile, are 0-6. However, they were at least competitive in a 28-26 loss to a decent Tennessee Titans team Sunday.
Alabama, meanwhile, remains undefeated after beating Tennessee (as in, the Volunteers) 49-10 on Saturday.
