    Dashing through the snow Right up the O line butts Oh what fun we have with Crow Who never heard of cuts. When he plows ahead We know he will not score But Hue just keeps on riding him Right on out the door. Adios Huey, Adios Huey A line you shouldn't have drawn You will see the clock run out Cause timeouts are all gone

    You know there's Kizer and Kessler Manziel and Haden Hogan and Hoyer Thomas and Pettine But do you recall The most famous Brownie of all? Sashi the Brown-Nosed Executive Had a very brown nose And if you ever saw him You would even say it grows All of the other executives Used to laugh and call him names They never let poor Sashi Join in any executive games Then one foggy Berea day Haslam came to say "Sashi with your nose so brown Won't you guide my team this year?" Then how the executives loved him As they shouted out with glee "Sashi the Brown-Nosed Executive You'll go down in history"

    I can't second this enough, we drank with locals for two days, one of my friends was taken to a strip joint by locals we met in a bar near the stadium. Some other things to ad as well, it's just the best place. After two years off now, I am determined to be back next year cheering on a team that all of a sudden, looks pretty good........and Josh Rosen

    Well...apparently, the plan was to let Mitchell Schwartz walk because of their BIG egos...while we KNEW we were losing Alex Mack. Thus, our OL went straight into the $hitter, we broke all of our QB's and even broke Clipboard Jesus. - That was brilliance right there. And their plan was also to evaluate Wentz as NOT being a top 20 QB in this league...and giving Houston THEIR QB. All the while WE were / are a team floundering without a franchise QB. - That's EVALUATING brilliance being demonstrated. ...and we should want to CONTINUE with these people making decisions? It was an interesting concept. I don't blame Haslam for thinking outside of the box. But apparently we need people that can evaluate FOOTBALL players and not baseball players and district attorneys. Let's face it...these guys took a 3 or 4 win team and made them such that they can't win 2 games in two years. Try as you might, you cannot make an excuse that a rational person would accept for that.

    This was in the 1960s, Remember, the likes of i-75 and I-77 were not completed...or perhaps even started then. They had to drive through the hills and mountains of Georgia/Tennesse/Kentucky/Virginia/West Virg. on back highways like US 21. And those were some nasty roads through there in those days. I know that I-77 anyway was not complete through WVa. until about the late 80s.

    I hope you guys don't mind, but I thought it'd be nice to get the game post up and running so we could have a venue to talk about the upcoming match up. So are we going to win? No, don't be ridiculous. The sad thing is, the Bengals are NOT a good football team. They rank last in points scored per game, and they are last in other offensive categories. They don't run the ball well, AJ Green has only gone over 100 yards once in the last 5 games, and they really have been struggling to put points on the board and finish games in a strong manner. "So Jiggins, all of these stats and points you make seem good for the Browns, so why won't we win?" I'm glad you asked. The Bengals may struggle to score the ball, but make no mistake, they play physical defense and they punish the QB. Their defensive line is VERY similar to the Jaguars, and Geno Atkins has ALWAYS tortured our team. You remember the gif that showed Atkins blowing Cam Erving's azz apart and sent him flying through the air like an extra in "The Matrix"? Atkins is a beast and he will not only destroy Kizer, but he will also disrupt our feeble running game. Additionally, the Bengals have a DL named Lawson who leads all rookies in sacks with 5.5, and he too will get in on the action. Our offense does NOT match up well against tough, physical defenses, and if you thought our offense struggled last week, just wait until you get a load of THIS game. I don't want anyone to forget how bad this Bengals team destroyed us the first time. If my memory serves me well, we essentially got shutout until Kevin Hogan entered the game and took us on one touchdown drive. It was bad. "But Jiggins, that was earlier in the season, surely we're better NOW, right? Uhhhhh...no...no we're not. Corey Coleman and Myles Garrett didn't play the first time, but we're also going to be without Joe Thomas, Ogbah, Meder, and possibly others. AJ Green is licking his chops in anticipation of the game, and he kicked our butt last time. Mostly this game will come down to defense, and we'll lose badly because we simply don't match up well with physically imposing units, and then you realize OUR defense is the absolute worst in the league in the red zone (I think teams score TOUCHDOWNS 79% of red zone visits...which is ridiculously atrocious) Similar to last week, the only way we win is if our defense and special teams score, and that was basically the difference in the Jags game. Our defense scores in that ugly match up, we might've won. Our special teams are miserable, but I really hoped our defense would score more touchdowns and force more turnovers this year. Maybe that starts Sunday...but I wouldn't hold your breath. Even if our defense scores TWO touchdowns, it likely wouldn't be enough to overcome the drumming we're in store for Sunday. It's sad because the Bengals aren't good at ALL, but our offense is so bad and plays so awful against physical defenses, that I can't even comprehend a way we score over 10 points. What say you guys? You think last week's terrible performance will be enough to provide us with a spark offensively? I certainly don't, but I want to be wrong. If Kizer has another dismal showing, it's going to get really ugly in Cleveland.

    Just some follow up on a few items - the 4chan one was just what is thought to be the breakout of the code and related events, just info nothing else. The McCain bit just shows something fishy going on with all these Boots. I'm aware of at least five people wearing them, which seems highly suspicious. The Twitter bits go with the rest of the Twitter stuff, and showing that they are not on the up and up. I'm still going over a lot of the stuff myself as well, will be dumping a few more days of posts as I gather them. This is mostly for posterity / reflection should this really amount to anything.

    Well things to be thankful for........ . Thanksgiving Day football, once a tradition among the high schools and colleges of America, has more or less faded into oblivion in most sections of the country. But it is still alive in the National Football League in two franchise cities, Detroit and Dallas, where Thanksgiving Day football has become a normal, expected way of life. Beginning in 1966, Dallas has missed playing on the holiday only in 1975 and 1977. However, when it comes to Thanksgiving Day football, NFL style, most fans first think of the Lions and the tradition that was started in 1934. It was their first year in Detroit after a local radio executive, George A. Richards, had purchased the Portsmouth (Ohio) Spartans and moved the team to Detroit. The Spartans were members of the NFL from 1930 to 1933 With the Spartans, not only was Richards bringing a proven, quality team to Detroit, he was also bringing at least one super-star, Earl "Dutch" Clark, one of the most versatile backs ever to play the game. Clark had an outstanding supporting cast in the Detroit backfield with a big, talented line anchored by Frank Christiansen. Even though he knew there was some risk in scheduling a game on Thanksgiving Day, Richards also recognized that his Lions were taking a back seat to the baseball Tigers on the sports pages. So as one way of attracting Motor City fans during the team's first season, he opted for the Thanksgiving Day contest. The matchup between the Lions and the World Champion Chicago Bears proved to be an all-time classic. The 1934 Lions had not allowed a touchdown until their eighth game and entered the game with the Bears with a 10-1 record. But with 11 straight wins, Chicago had an even better record. Still a win would put the Lions into a first-place tie with the Bears with only a game left, a repeat clash with the Bears in Chicago, just three days later on December 2. The 26,000 tickets for the Turkey Day clash in the University of Detroit Stadium, were sold out two weeks in advance of the game. It was estimated that another 25,000 would have attended had there been seats available. The Bears edged out the Lions 19-16 in the classic holiday struggle and then prevailed 10-7 three days later to clinch the NFL Western Division crown. Not despondent over the last two losses, Richards reasoned that his team had done well in its first year in Detroit. His confidence was rewarded the next year when the Lions won the 1935 NFL Championship. The key game in the title drive came on Thanksgiving Day, when the Lions defeated the Bears 14-2 to clinch the West championship. Thus the football-on-Thanksgiving tradition became firmly established in Detroit. With the exception of a six-season gap from 1939 to 1944, the Thanksgiving Day game has been played with no interruptions. The Detroit Lions Thanksgiving Day heritage gained national attention in another way, starting with the very first game in 1934. Knowing the publicity potential of radio, Richards along with NBC Radio, set up a 94-station network to broadcast the Lions-Bears showdown. The famous announcing team of Graham McNamee and Don Wilson described the action. Thanksgiving Day results, 1920-2015

    Yeah I noticed that. It actually wasn't my intention...it just kind of spiraled out of control. I'm sorry Nero. I was actually trying to make a post full of analysis, but virtually every stat I looked up went completely against us, and then I went to the dark place. Anyway, there's no denying it's a bad match up. That being said, we can make progress without winning (believe it or). We had about 8 "3 and outs" last week, and that's ridiculous. We need to sustain more freaking drives and FINISH those drives with 7. Even if we lose, I'll be proud of the team if we make it competitive and we score some points. I want 15 touches for Duke Johnson AT LEAST. Crow can grab a seat this week, as I'm ready for the Duke and Dayes show. If we can run the ball, we can pass the ball. We CANNOT get into a situation where we're down early and have to pass our way back into the game. That will get Kizer killed. But if we run it well, it'll set up play action, and keep the the defense on their heels a bit. Running the ball...it's virtually everything this week. It's also imperative to force FG's and not give up touchdowns to them. I've already stated how poorly our defense is in the red zone, and that's killed us in several games this year (Colts, Lions, etc). We turn that around, and we can stay in it. We stay in it, and we have a chance to score on a big play, our defense, or God forbid special teams. Our team is so due for some big plays that it's not funny. I'm looking at YOU Coleman. YOU Peppers. Force some FG's, make some big plays, create turnovers...WIN the game. Mixon is their feature back and rookies are notorious for fumbling. I'm calling it now...he'll have a big fumble this game (we just have to RECOVER it). Perhaps this is the game where the ball bounces to OUR guy for the easy scoop-touchdown. Listen, it's not ALL bad, but it's not a great game for us. We already lost badly once, we really haven't gotten better, and our OL is without our captain. We must find a way to run the ball, and that might mean reducing Crowell's role and giving more to Duke and Dayes.

    I'm proud of him too. I want him to get his life back. To maximize his potential, to be involved in his children's life, to be happy. Drugs take EVERYTHING from people who become addicted, and each and everyone of us know a person who battled or who IS battling this terrible scourge. Poor or rich, black or white, it doesn't matter. Cmon Josh...you can do this. Be the man, the player, and the teammate we need. Help us win a few games buddy. It's a tall order...but we need it.

    Yes, it is almost the season.....but since we are WAY too early on things like Christmas, etc.....I guess I decided why not get into the season's spirit a bit early...with this: What to my wondering eyes should appear But a miniature blocking sled and 8 tiny competiteers. With a little old college scout so lively and hyper, I knew in a moment it must be Mel Kiper. More rapid than Eagles and Seahawks they came and Mel whistled and shouted them out by name: NOW Darnold NOW Rosen NOW Allen and Jackson ON Browning ON Baker ON Barrett and Litton To the Top of the heap, to the Top of the Draft Now 40 yard dash away Now vertical leap away Now 3 cone drill away all........ And they all shouted out with glee: Rudolph the Okie Cowboy You'll go down in history.

    My dad was WWII put in his 6 years active and 4 reserves...DONE, but because he ended up as the chief electrician on the BB-62 the New Jersey they called him back up to Korea. Job at USSTEEL as an electrican, marriage, college, me on the way all put on hold in 1950. Yeah in the invasion of North Africa and later Italy he was shot at by German aircraft while on a small wooden minesweeper fighting back with .50 caliber machine guns. Seriously tense moments while also cutting and blowing up the mines with those same .50 caliber guns, awarded a bronze star before being shipped out to WestPac and the BB-62.

    HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all!! Headed (as always) to Columbus for Thanksgiving. I made a double batch of my peanut butter fudge & also taking a 20 lb turkey to deep fry. That's some good stuff, liberally seasoned with my home made dry rub then swimming in hot oil for 70 minutes while I drink some Old Leghumpers & Shiner Bocks. Just hope my Nieces made plenty of stuffing & gravy. Niece also roasts a large bird, but my Nephews (also the younger nieces) & I eat most of the fried turkey & skin while I'm carving. The more civilized members of our family actually eat at the table.......how BORING!! Then it's football, beer, & ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ Mike

    Lets be real, no free agent quarterback that will make a difference will even consider coming here. Ive been saying it for years, we have to take the best quarterback available to us with our first pick. Over thinking this has been the #1 problem with this team since Couch. If you dont have a quarterback, you pick the best one, every damn year if you have to. Hell draft 5 of em.

    I wanted to follow up on our first time in Cleveland. WE WILL BE BACK! We've been all over the country and numerous Caribbean islands, this was one of our best trips. The hospitality of the Clevelanders was second to none. Everybody was extremely nice and helpful. We really enjoyed downtown, 4th street was a lot of fun. Westside market had some of the best produce we've every seen, and a portion of the cost. The Cavs games was amazing and our hotel couldn't be beat. The Jags stayed there and we joked about pulling fire alarms all night to possibly help the Browns. We didn't get around early enough to tailgate on sunday due to early checkout, but the Dawg Pound was awesome and even my 12 year old daughter is now a Browns fan. Fans mentioned coming back in the summer and visiting the islands on Lake Erie and we are going to check it out and for sure be to at least 1 Browns game each year going forward. You are all very fortunate for what you have, look out once the Browns turn the corner! As a side note, being a big 12 fan, I'm hoping they stay away from Mayfield. Reminds me a lot of Johhny... Kizer may come around, but the 4 turnovers really killed them.

    Interesting I've been thinking along the same lines of 1st overall and a 2nd rounder. It's a deeper class than anyone we have now in that position. EDITL: However if Allen is there to pick in the 2nd, please use it on a WR, FS or some other position of greater need.

    I give you Walter Football's take for your amusement. Tour isn't going to like it much. "Cleveland's M.O. in the last two drafts was passing on Carson Wentz and Deshaun Watson to trade down. Considering the current regime also passed on Dak Prescott, the evaluation skills of Sashi Brown, Paul DePodesta, Andrew Berry and Hue Jackson are damning. I have been hearing chatter from scouts around the league that the Browns are going to clean house again. A new regime would definitely look to take its own quarterback. Even if the franchise doesn't clean house, DeShone Kizer hasn't done enough to convince the team he's the future. If Cleveland takes a rookie quarterback in the 2018 NFL Draft and he has some success next season, that might be enough to buy the current regime some more time Read more at http://walterfootball.com/mocks/nfl/2018/Quarterback#koMPFwkDFzZj4xyc.99"
