    I was thinking that this year's Browns team reminded me a lot of the 1986 Browns, for a couple of reasons. First, because it is coming off a 7-8-1 season...where the 1986 team was coming off an 8-8 season. There is also the coach and QB situations. The Browns had fired Sam, and Marty took over, where now Kitchens takes over here. Also some similarities in the positions. I will list each position group, then give some comments comparing them. QB 2019 Mayfield #1 overall choice, came in midway last year/rookie and sparked the team, now going into his second year. 1986 Kosar also the equivalent of the #1 pick in the draft, came midway in 1985/rookie year and sparked the team. Comparison....quite favorable to both (except in height and mobility). Same killer attitude RBs 2019 Chubb/Duke (Hunt/Hilliard) 1986 Mack/Byner (Dickey/Fontenot) Comparison: 1986 has the slight edge with Byner's toughness and versatility WRs 2019 OBJ/Landry (Callaway/Higgins) 1986 Langhorne/Slaughter (Brennan) Comparison: 2019 should prove better/deeper TEs 2019 Njoku, primary 1986 Ozzie Newsome Comparison: Ozzie is HOF. Njoku has a long way to go to get there Edge 1986 OL 2019 Robinson/Bitonio/Tretter/Corbett/Hubbard 1986 Farren/Larry Williams/Mike Baab/Dan Fike/Cody Risien Comparison: I think 1986 has the edge, because they were together longer. DEs 2019 Garrett/Vernon 1986 Reggie Camp/Carl Hairston Comparison: 2019 should have the big edge. DL was the weakness on that 1986 team, imo. It is why Elway could "drive". DTs 2019 Ogunjobi/Richardson 1986 Bob Golic (Browns played 3-4 then...now are 4-3 Comparison: Golic was a fire plug....but 2019 has a big edge LBs 2019 Schobert/Kirksey/Gennard 1986 Matthews/Chip Banks/ Eddie Johnson/Griggs Comparison: 1986 better by far I believe CBs 2019 Ward/Williams or Mitchell 1986 Dixon and Minniefield Comparison: Have to give the edge to the 1986 guys....but the feeling is that Ward/Williams could maybe give the Top Dawg and Minnie a run for their money some day. Safeties 2019 Burnett/Randall 1986 Rockins/Wright Comparison: Historical edge to 1986....but let's see Kicker 2019 Joseph or Seibert 1986 Matt Bahr Comparison: Matt Bahr a far more veteran, reliable kicker than both current guys....who to me are each somewhat unproven Punter 2019 Colquitt 1986 Jeff Gossett Comparison: Pretty even matchup, both quite good KR 2019 Hilliard 1986 Gerald McNeil PR 2019 Callaway 1986 McNeil Comparison: IMO our current KR/PR unsettled. The Ice Cube was slick. Edge to him

    Josh Norman has been seen in the bull running today in Pamplona. I'm angry because today I have partied and I left just before the bull running (gotta work at 2pm, bull running is 8am). My little brother who is a NFL fan has seen him but didn't know he was an NFL player. Damn it. He recalls that Norman has made a big jump over a cow and has earned a big applause by the bulls' square attendance. In other news, I have helped around the city a couple from Utah, giving them some directions and advice, for which they have tipped me. Denver Broncos and Georgia Bulldogs fans. Really nice and cheerful people. I'll keep on my quest for Browns fans

    Ironically it was Einstein who said that God did not play dice with the universe in his arguments against Quantum Mechanics. He just could not accept that chance could be a part of a major branch of astrophysics as is the case there. All that being said, the only thing I need to do is go outside on a starry night and realize that my vision is so limited that I can barely see one little part on one little galaxy in a universe populated by trillions of galaxies and all began with a bang that no one can hear because there was no medium to carry the sound of "let there be light". As for Jesus? He had a better philosophy on a guide for my life than any other person that ever lived. Of course at times I fail to read the guidebook, but he knew that too and left us all a mulligan. For that I am thankful and truly in awe. Amen.

    You've been on the board wanting to share your passion about football and the Browns since I arrived back in 98. It doesn't matter to me that you never played. The common bond we all have here is our football team and the passion we devote to it. We all learn this game one way or another. If I can share an experience to a situation - I try to do so. I've always enjoyed your particular interest in the offensive line and sense of humor that first captivated me way back when Shep was rating QBs based on how good looking he felt they were. That sure led to some entertaining discussions. You've always done a great job of keeping your political views out of the football forum discussions!

    Visited Cincinnati for the first time last summer, thoroughly enjoyed my time there. Caught two Indians/Reds games while there. Stopped in an Irish bar to have a drink on the way back to the hotel after both games (O'Malley's in the Alley) and had a Rheingheist Truth the second night, because when in Rome.... Grossest beer I've ever had. I can drink some Summer Shandy, Blue Moon, etc, but Truth was disgusting. Fucking grapefruit. Ugh. And Skyline tastes like someone tried to make chili, had a stroke, and then thought they were trying to make a pumpkin pie. Seriously, what the fuck is that shit?

    The "so he isn't allowed to have fun like every other adult?" argument is the same one we got from JFF apologists while he was partying in Vegas and all points west. No, he can do whatever the fuck he wants---it's just that he has a suspect history and he's willingly putting himself in positions where bad things can happen. Sure, you have every right to go to a bar like any other free man in America. If memory serves me correctly, Hunt wasn't charged in any of the previous incidents but the NFL broke it off in his ass, anyways. Dorsey has already told him he's on a zero-tolerance policy and he's at bars putting himself in situations where the police are being called. It's fucking stupid.

    https://www.foxbusiness.com/business-leaders/bernie-marcus-plans-to-donate-majority-of-his-fortune-trump-re-election Billionaire Bernie Marcus Opens a New Window. has already given more than $2 billion to upwards of 300 organizations, and he said he plans to donate the majority of his fortune while he’s still alive and support President Trump for re-election in the 2020 presidential election. The Home Depot co-founder told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution Opens a New Window. over the weekend that he will continue to look for worthy causes to donate to in the years to come. Marcus, 90, added that 80 to 90 percent of his wealth will go to the Marcus Foundation when he dies to fund other organizations such as medical discoveries, helping children with autism and veteran support. “I want to live to be 100 because I want to be in a position to give it away to those things that I really believe in,” Marcus told the newspaper. “I’ve got all the houses I need. I live very well. My kids are taken care of. Everything I live for now is finding the right things to put my money into and that can give me a rate of return in emotion and doing good things for this world.” Marcus has an estimated net worth of $5.8 billion, according to Forbes Opens a New Window. . The billionaire has donated more than $2 billion to philanthropic causes, including $250 million to build the Georgia Aquarium. The businessman could donate up to $6 billion in his lifetime. When asked about his net worth, Marcus said he doesn’t “have a clue.” “You know when I find out what I’m worth? Once a year, I go through it with my accountants. I don’t have a clue. My key is how much can I give away this year?” he told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Marcus was also a top donor to President Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign — and he plans to support the president during his 2020 re-election bid, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. “[Trump’s] got a businessman’s common sense approach to most things,” Marcus said. “…Now, do I agree with every move that he makes? No, I don’t. But the truth is he has produced more than anybody else. He has. If we look at this country, I would say that we are better off today than we were eight years ago or six years ago.” Marcus said Trump’s biggest flaw is his communication skills. “I’ll tell you what he has not done well: His communication sucks. I mean he takes on every battle. He’s fighting. He does things he shouldn’t be doing,” he said. “As president of the United States, I’d rather him do things that are meaningful.” Marcus said how much more he will donate to philanthropy depends on Home Depot’s success. Marcus still holds a large number of Home Depot shares. “Home Depot is doing well because they understand the philosophy of reinventing themselves,” Marcus said. “At one point, we had real concern that Amazon was going to put everybody out of business. I don’t feel that is true today…They are not going to run away with our business.”

    I didn't agree with Perot on some things but I always felt he had NAFTA pegged right as being bad for our country and glad to see Trump re-negotiate NAFTA.

    I'm not a big fan of boycotting anyting. I don't buy Nike shoes because I prefer other brands and always have. Well before they decided to go with the hate America advertising policy and making a bigger star out of a POS quarterback. But you lefties should let everybody know whether you are protesting police brutality or a flag. And if it's the flag must every flag be destroyed that flew in the United States until the Emancipation Proclamation? And keeping in mind that there is actually slavery around the world why aren't we going to war with those places? Answer: because Kaepernick, Nike and the lefties could not give .001 of a shit about slavery or civil rights, they're concerned with publicity and profit. (Unlike Betsy Ross and the rest of the Quaker abolitionists) WSS

    Seems ol Clevis and Butthead are taking a hiatus amid these democrat debates. Defending the indefensible has run it's course I suppose....or perhaps trying to defend an entire group of idiots is just too overwhelming.

    Each of the people who others would throw into that category, however, are the single most thin-skinned crybabies on the forum. 100% of them absolutely cannot handle being told they are wrong and to shut their piehole - with precisely the same vitriol and wild fact-free assertion that they attempt to claim as somehow their right. [This trait always fascinated me.. you're going to swing at someone and then get shocked when they swing back? That's not how any of this works..] As is expected from a person who crumbles when they're not in control, they don't defend their position with anything resembling objectivity - all of their "defense" is pure attack on the personality/grammar/wit of the person who has the temerity to respond. You know, like an @ hole. The reason they are trolls is that they do not advance knowledge/understanding/discussion in any way... they're just annoying. "Villain" would actually be an upgrade because a villain has a plan. These mongrels don't have a position.. they just want to find an excuse to type angry personal attacks. The forum is better for all of those accounts [Ghoolie, Shorts etc] being perma-banned. Also: Don't get caught up into the "But they have a single nugget of objective point!" notion.. No, they don't -- never did, never will. The appropriate comparison is to consider how a different forum member would act if they actually wanted to contribute. If hoorta sincerely wondered "Are OL all fat and easily replaceable?" the way he would move forward would be: Make a thread with the question as OP, sit back, and learn something as Tour and Tia and Mud and several others show why an OL of 5 Desmond Harrisons is a quick path to 1-15. But trolls don't... because the people doing the trolling PERSONALLY cannot stop themselves from continuing with the ad hominem attacks. [or you could watch a video of last season's cam newton showing that all cam's problems were the lack of time to step and point his front foot because of pressure up the middle which led to inaccuracy, nothing to do with "his shoulder"] Yes, the trolls are that bad - and yes, they deserve to get the banhammer.

    I have been excited about Richardson since we signed him & think his presence & play will be an absolute key to our D. In addition, the Browns signed him for 3 years & he has stated that someone finally gave him a "home". IMHO, that alone will pay huge dividends as he is "all in". Count me among Sheldon Richardson's Fans. Mike
