    Big, big mistake to dis this kid, bigger to let him go. Zomblow called him a gamer, and he is a gamer. He played a very intelligent game today, and did a hell of a lot of polished veteran-style things. I like this kid. No need to draft a QB next year. If this kid had the tools on the field and on the sidelines that Goff, Wentz, et al had, he would be a world beater.

    Well...I think that something needs to change, either in the front office or on the sidelines. I'm in favor of replacing the HC myself. But either way...1-24 requires change somewhere.

    That's childish, you're just waiting immediate results which haven't led us anywhere in past years... 1-120 is the way to go.

    I'd edit that to more say we have to stop SCRIPTING our damn blitzes so much. Williams did a tremendous job in the 1st quarter or so of disguising things, but the last two TD's of the game for the lions were so obvious scheme wise it hurt to watch. Especially the last one, oof. That quick pass was something that I could have completed for a TD there reading the defense, let alone a dude like Stafford.

    Yes they will....if you're a top assistant coach in the league, you're going to jump at the chance to be a Head Coach in the NFL. There are only 32 of these jobs available. And again...firing the coach doesn't mean flushing the entire thing down the toilet. You can't have a coach who goes 1-31 over 2 years or 2-30 over two seasons as an NFL coach. It's unprecendented levels of suckage from Hue. The FO can stay and find another coach. Go find some young hungry dude who wants a chance to prove he's the next young NFL genius. The young Cowher...the young Gruden, the young Belichick. The next Sean Payton...that's the guy the team needs to go find. Williams can stay or go....I don't care either way. I'd prefer to keep him so that our new young offensive minded coach can focus on coaching the offense.

    Just gave my son-in-law his 40th birthday card this weekend. It was all black with white lettering which on the outside read "Everyone gets to be young just once in their life". Inside it read, "Your turn is over". LOL!

    I believe the head coach is holding this team back from being better. At least a couple of wins to this point in the season better. He's just not a good Head Coach. The sooner the FO realizes this, the sooner the team can start to actually progress forward.

    And this, I'm afraid, is where we have to part ways on this subject, because I for sure do not advocate the rape of someone else's daughter because we have differing political principals.

    I would like to see Kubiak here but I doubt he would come as long as Corky and the window lickers are in charge of stocking the offense. They appear to have no idea how to identify even an average WR.

    Us Toledo peeps aren't hard to find..Jim(Dec.) & Gumby(Apr.). Were both born at Mercy/St Lukes Hospital in Toledo ,Oh. in 1963.. My father coached with Jim & John's father Jack at Perrysburg HS..Watch John Fox at Bears where Jim also played..The DC with Bears is John Fangio..That was Jim's DC when he was at 49'ers.. it could get interesting..but Jim Michigan..But, If ya make it rain?

    If we'd have stuck with Chud / Turner I think we'd have won a playoff game already. I don't think you will see the major coaching changes most think there will be. You will see significant change in the FO and the addition of an assistant HC.

    There literally could not be a worse head coach for a team as unbelievably young as the Browns as Jon Gruden. He ran veteran teams with the Raiders and the Bucs - on purpose. So is Jim Harbaugh already burning bridges at That School Up North? That's his M.O. It was the worst kept secret that there were people at Stanford who were damn near doing cartwheels when he left for the 49ers, he was that disliked.

    Hogan will and should rightfully be the backup QB going into this next game. And if Kizer's ribs are bad you can expect him to play like Sheet. So, Hogan may not be the starter but it will be Hogan that will win us our first game next week!

    Gruden, Harbaugh or Tressel would all be welcomed over Hue. I'm so over Hue Jackson and the way he coaches. Mangini was 10x better than Jackson.

    Kizer still lost. So by your own logic him having his best game of the season means nothing. Time to go Hogan, clearly. And there will be probably be 4 this year and another 4-5 next year. Any coach worth his salt could just wait another year and get a much better job than this one. This "there are only 32 jobs like this" canard is just that.

    I'm happy for Deshone, I really am. He played better today and he also got robbed by the refs which cost him a beautiful drive that could've ended up with another TD. Two things though: Kizer is still an absolute nightmare in the red zone, and he still panics. The audible to a QB sneak from the 2 yard line with no timeouts is absolutely unacceptable. I don't care if Hue said that it was on him...IT WASN'T. Kizer is to blame for that idiotic stupidity, and I have to say that I've NEVER seen that before...ever. Do you guys know WHY he audibled to that play? It's because it's the only play he knows how to score with! Fellas, the 1 yard QB sneak is the ONLY thing in Kizer's playbook. Hey, I have an idea. Let's try the fade pass ONE MORE TIME, huh Kizer? I'm sure you'll get it next time, right? Maybe I should be happy that he FINALLY threw a TD pass, but you know what? I'm not. He threw a 5 yard pass to Britt and the defender whiffed on a tackle. That's the only reason we have a TD pass. We didn't throw the ball into the end zone. We didn't complete a nice pass into tight coverage, we didn't scheme somebody open....no, no, no. We scored because the opposition screwed up. It's about the only chance we have to score through the air. And while Kizer did a better job of running the ball, he might have the absolute worst vision I've ever seen. When he had that nice run down to the 2 yard line, he ran RIGHT at the defender and fell down. If you look to the right, you'll notice a ton of open space. If he fakes left and turn right...he might go all of the way. On his best run of the year, he inexplicably slid on his bottom 5 yards in front of a stationary safety. THE GUY WASN'T MOVING! You're 234 pounds and you're running full speed at a guy who is probably 195 pounds and completely still. Do you go left? Right? Try a fake and go around? Run over his punk butt? No, he slides on his butt cheeks. I'm glad that he's getting down, but it just seems like he leaves so many yards on the table. I'm glad he played better, but his red zone baffoonery is still terrible, and he's a guy who panics. We can't win with a panicky QB. Maybe he's just young and needs more time, but he doesn't do it for me. I want to be SO WRONG. I WANT Kizer to be the man...but I don't see it, man.

    I want to be very clear. I do NOT want a new coach right now OR at the end of the year. It's obvious to me that the players like our coach, and they also play hard for them. What we need now are adjustments. We need an OC, like many of us have been saying for a while. This OC needs to be in TOTAL command of the clock, the play-calling, and anything else associated with scoring points. We're going to be getting real weapons back soon, and we need to make the most of Coleman and Gordon. I realize we won't be getting an OC THIS year, but if Gordon and Coleman are somehow on the field for us next season, I don't want their talent wasted by Hue Jackson's red zone failures. The other adjustment we need to our coaching staff is a serious change of scheme by Gregg Williams. I'm not saying we need to fire him or completely alter his scheme, but he simply MUST stop blitzing so much, as it's killing us. I know that if you live by the blitz, you die by the blitz, but that Golden Tate screen pass that went for a 40 yard TD killed us, and it shouldn't have happened. We had only two DB's covering 3 WR's, and it was an easy audible for a seasoned pro like Stafford to make. Tate is one of the best, actually he's THE best, yards after catch guy in the league. Teams are starting to catch onto our aggressive tendencies, and it's becoming a problem. That Golden Tate TD was WAY too easy, as was the Ebron TD. He easily got by his defender, there was no help anywhere, and it was basically pitch and catch. When is the last time we had a TD like THAT? A nice little 30 yard bomb for a TD? I don't remember it...do you?

    It wouldn't hurt to move Hogan up to the backup slot after the pathetic showing Kesser put in Sunday subbing for Kizer. Regarding Deshone, I've been one of his biggest critics, but I have to admit, he looked decent against the Lions. The defensive strip for a TD wasn't his fault.

    the plan was to set a 2 year record for futility? Hmmm...please cite where they told us that. Additionally, if that was the plan wouldn't this be a genius approach to take with any new job? You go get hired for a new job and tell your boss "ok now, I'm going to suck at this job for the next two years worse than any other employee has ever sucked, and since I'm telling you that now you're going to be ok with it because it's all part of the plan so don't dare fire me".

    The Jags defense is for real and Fournette is really good as well. They may be a decent QB away from being one of the best in the AFC. Cousins, Alex Smith or sure maybe Eli would all be in play for the Jags.

    Passing: 21/37 passes 56.8 %comp, 232 yards, 6.3 yards per attempt 1 TD 1 INT (on last play, these are made by every QB) 1 sack 73.3 QB rating Rushing: 7 attempts, 57 yards 8.1 yards per attempt 1 TD. He rushed for more yards than Duke Johnson (54), who in my opinion had a good game. I don't know how QB rating works, and I guess it doesn't count the rushing game, but for me a QB which gets 279 yards and scores a touchdown while only getting a sack (thanks to an unblocked rusher) and makes and INT when the team is losing by two scores, tells me more about him than 73.3QBr. I say that because we tend to look at statistics and if you only looked to the QB rating you wouldn't say he played such a good game.

    I'll write more later (I'm sure you all are so excited) but I don't have time right now. There's a part of me that is somewhat encouraged today, but honestly, there's a bigger part that is so completely aggrevated by our continued red zone buttfukkery. That series of events before the half just sent me into a tailspin. Now, I DO love how we responded, and that can't be understated, but we are a team that can NEVER leave points on the field, and I honestly don't know why we called our final timeout with just over a minute to go. I don't get it....

    Maybe the fact that they couldn’t get the trade done for a 4th backup qb could read as disfunctionality, but apart from that I feel that this team has been doing everything they’ve set out to do. They said it would be a few years before they’d be able to compete, and that they were more focused on building a team that is easier to play QB for. This defense has been improving, the team is solid in the trenches on both sides due to the moves this FO Has made. Mid round guys like Coleman and Drango are holding their own. acquiring Tretter and Zeitler has also worked out. Ogbah is the highest rated DE for stopping the run, Garrett is a legit star even though , God forbid, he’s had to deal with a minor injury (still some are drowning in dreadful snotty tears that the Browns didn’t draft the guy who blew his leg up by running on grass). Ogunjobi, Collins, Calhoun, Mccourty, Njoku etc. while there are certainly the growing pains that everyone expected, this team is still a far better environment for the QB, it just isn’t showing yet because literally every team on the browns schedule this season has a shitload more experience than the Browns. I know we all want these 21-22 year old kids to come into the league and outplay second-third contract players who know what it takes to win in the NFL, but that’s the equivalent of playing the lottery in lieu of a retirement fund. The latest presser the FO said that they would be aggressive in solving the QB situation, and now it’s time. If they can deliver the QB everything will be fine and no one will admit to crying for a house cleaning. The truth is the great Belicheck stumbled butt first into a franchise QB and then drafted a shitload of guys who don’t belong in the league, that’s how it goes. This team is doing things the same way as belicheck except they haven’t lucked into a 6th round HOF QB. That really is the line in the sand that separates belicheck getting his salad tossed by ESPN 24/7 and a bunch of entitled children complaining because they miss rooting for a 3 win team. If the FO can’t make good in their goal to bring in a QB, then we can go back to the tried and true method of bringing in janitors and coffee fetchers to restore the luster of 4-12 seasons as far as the eye can see. BTW, while I turned 32 last Monday, I still probably only have about 8-9 years left in the tank, so I’m in the same boat as a lot of you old heads.

    4,6 and 7 get us a lot of postseason play, don’t they? Remember that awesome 4 win season where we made it to the AFC Championship? How about that 5 win season where we almost won the Super Bowl? Clamoring for a “football guy” because he can get us to 4 wins is one of the dumbest things I’ve ever heard.

    I’m just guessing because I’m 6’10 and have spent most of my life burning my candle at both ends. There’s probably a heart attack or stroke waiting around the corner. Furthermore, if I suffer a serious injury or disease I’ll probably just run the car in the garage and cut class early, but I’ll be hoping the browns can turn it around until that happens.
