    Black bears rarely bother people. And you sure as hell don't need a 10mm for one. Just carry bear spray in your purse.

    They are going to go "live" from Berea today for training camp on NFL TV Network @ 4pm Eastern. BTW the Good Morning Football folks this morning were making the case for the Browns having the best receiving corps in the NFL now.

    Precisely! Plus I think that was after he had about 6 years of wear and tear on his body while Josh has only played 10 games since 2013. Josh looked big last year at this time too. Once training camp gets underway - the combination of heat and the strength training transition to a maintenance phase should reduce the mass/weight a little. I gave poor MJP a long winded reply that prolly had him snoring by the 2nd paragraph. The added muscle to Gordon over the last 2 years or so reminds me of TO/MeO. I don't think we'll see a decline in the speed/deep threat MJP and others are concerned about. If anything, we may see some better quicks out of stance and change of direction (especially if he's doing plyometrics).

    Nope, I got myself a nice small LC9s 9 mm 3 in. barrel strictly for concealed carry. It's only .9 inches thick and weighs only 17.2 ounces. It has almost zero detectability even with just a long enough T-shirt. No restrictions on handgun magazine capacity in Texas Cal. Texas LTC allows both concealed and open carry, but I do not know if in reciprocity from Ohio if they allow other than what your license there allows if it is a CC license. I would just assume CC only. https://www.gunlaws101.com/state/law/texas/magazine-capacity-restriction And here's a you tube by a guy who researched it for pistol vs bear spray.

    I would probably skip the Sig 320 for a little bit until they completely get their stuff squared away. They were having problems with guns going off when dropped. They supposedly fixed it but are now running into QC issues. I really hope they have it all in the past. They won the contract to replace Beretta with U.S. troops. But that usually boils down to money. If you wanted to carry something with a 12+ or 15 capacity, get a Glock 19. It is the boring choice but there is a reason for that. They are everywhere and parts/mags are dirt cheap.

    PFF analyzes Browns secondary - from 4/5, before the draft. Not sure the final role of Mitchell. He has the honor of being the NFL's worst in yards allowed per coverage snap last season. Positive detail about Peppers -- graded as the 25th best safety in coverage over the final 7 wks of 2017.

    I don’t sway either way on this. The North Koreans could flake at any moment and we know damn well they won’t let inspectors in or will take them on a guided tour. Give it a few years before judging the progress.

    David Boston was into steroids, right? That's probably one of the reasons his body completely broke down early. With Josh being the most tested athlete in the league (I assume), I can't imagine he would take something remotely controversial. Of course, I've been wrong before, LOL. It's funny, the only player people are really talking about IS Josh Gordon. Reporters, players, analysts...they all are mesmerized by Gordon's combination of size, speed, and sticky hands. I've never seen anything like him. Additionally, even though Landry is traditionally a slot WR, I found it interesting that Todd Haley is lining him up at the outside, and using either Duke Johnson or Corey Coleman in the slot. We've got a lot of flexibility, and it feels rather strange to go from one extreme to the other.

    I was lucky enough to be a co-producer on this film which will certainly take fans on a trip back in time and hopefully showcases the impact Marty had on so many people including 17 of his former players that have banded together in this film. Check out the trailer and ways to watch here with a portion of all proceeds going to alzheimer's research. Thanks! http://www.martyfilmkc.com/ways-to-watch.html

    Reading the article, I agree with one of the comments- lazy reporting. You don't "tear" a patella- it's a bone, you fracture it like Kyrie did a few years back. Was it a tendon tear, did he reinjure the knee he was rehabbing? We'll see.

    He didn't reinjure anything. The Browns Drs opted to try intenseive physical therapy instead of surgery. That clearly didn't work so now they wait another year.

    It'll be a lot better. We got a lot more athletic and got the kind of players that Williams wants and needs. I know everybody on here hates Hue, but I am SO glad we didn't go with a whole new coaching staff, because I really want to see the Greg Williams defense develop with his kind of players. We should be a middle of the road defense at worst, and a Top Third defense at best. The defensive line holds the key, IMO, If the DTs progress and Garrett and Ogbah become the wrecking crew that they can be ... watch out. Zombo

    There is not a more dominant physical freak than Josh Gordon, will be great for Ward to try to stop him. Covering Landry is no picnic either. The last CB we got in the top of the first round broke the starting lineup ... never? Three starts in two years for Gilbert Grape, filling in for injured guys. Zombo

    I'll never forget the story of Boston in practice one day telling a DBack to be careful hitting him up high because he had just gotten a nipple ring and his man titty was sore. 😁

    David Boston was my first thought too. Dude looked like he was stepping into the cage to fight Kimbo Slice. You have to do it gradually! Adding 35 pounds of muscle in an off-season is a little too obvious.

    I completely understand. I physically hurt after our losses last year, especially the ones we really had a shot in. So many things had to go wrong to lose every game, and as we all know, they did. I mean, look at the Green Bay game for example. We had that game locked up, yet figured out how to lose. Kizer made a perfect 3rd down pass to Njoku through a nothing window, and while initially ruled a catch, replay confirmed Njoku dropped it. Our 1st round pick dropped a pass from a struggling QB who actually did enough to win. That pass gets completed, we take another minute or so off the clock, and even if we go 3 and out, Green Bay gets the ball back with virtually no time left...even if they got a terrific punt return like they did to win. That's just ONE example. And yeah, I had tears in my eyes...again. I love my team, perhaps more than I should. I grew up in Tallahassee, FL since I was 5, and we all know how cruel kids can be in school. I would proudly wear my Browns clothing and hats, only to be consistently teased and ridiculed. As a grown man, that doesn't sound like a big deal. As a child, it's tough. I literally FOUGHT for my team's honor. I still have the busted knuckle on my right hand. Again, as a grown man it's silly. As a child, your team seems like the world. There was no internet. There was no Browns Daily show. I got a single paragraph in the sports section that summed up the week's game, and that was about it. But you better believe I knew every stat, every play, and would watch Sportcenter 3 times in a row just so I could see the few plays ESPN would show of the recent game. I suspect there were a lot of you just like me, and I'm not sure people fully understand the connection we have with our team, and why it hurt so much to go through the past few years. Barely winning one game, and then losing EVERY game was completely devastating, and then losing Joe Thomas was the icing on the cake. It couldn't get much worse. Fast forward to now, and my how things have changed. Regardless of how many games we might win in 2018, one thing is clear: We have a real team. I don't want to get into whether or not we have the right head coach, as it's moot. We have Hue Jackson, it's his 3rd year, and regardless of how you feel about him, having continuity is VERY positive. We know how turning over staff DOESN'T work, so I'm extremely proud of our front office. We kept a 1-31 coach. We drafted Baker Mayfield #1, even though he's far from the consensus choice. We identified our guy, we drafted him, and we don't care what anyone says. At #4, we took Ward. The guy we had rated the top non-qb of the entire draft. So we got our top QB and our other top player in the first four picks. We didn't get cute, we didn't try to "play for next year" and trade down. No, we picked who we wanted. Furthermore, our front office has shown the ability to take chances. Remember drafting Caleb Brantley? Our team was very confident in their investigation, and we essentially got a low 1st round talent at like a 6th round cost. That's HUGE. I assume Brantley will start next to Ogunjobi and play very well. How about Antonio Callaway? Obviously the verdict is still out, but early reports are very good indeed. He looks extremely smooth, fast, and dangerous. Another 1st round type talent at a lower cost. Will it bite us in the butt? We'll see, but we're confident in our system, and Callaway now has a daughter to support. And the other gamble? How about KEEPING Josh Gordon? Can you imagine the frustration of this ongoing saga? Wouldn't it have been some much easier to cut him loose? But no, we didn't do that. We held onto Gordon, supported him, and crossed our fingers understanding that we obviously get NOTHING if we cut him, but on the oft chance Gordon SOMEHOW figures out his demons and keeps working on them, we don't just get a talented WR, we get perhaps the most dangerous receiver in the world next to only Antonio Brown. I'm like you in that my heart cries for the time Josh lost. Time he'll never get back. Addiction takes everything you love and leaves you a shell of a man, hollow inside with nothing left to give. Addiction doesn't care if you're rich, poor, black, white, gay or Hispanic. It kills everything you love and does it quickly, or painfully slow. For the first time in his life, Josh came clean. It could NOT have been easy either. He came ALL the way clean. Details that terrified me just to LISTEN to, ya know? But Josh is somehow back, and is now playing football SOBER for the first time since he was in middle school. Think about that for a second. Josh literally played drunk and stoned. He PRACTICED that way. What can this man do with all of his faculties? I'll tell you one thing, the only thing that stands in the way of a "healthy" Josh Gordon is a freak injury. For the first time EVER, I feel like I don't have to worry about seeing a headline pop onto my phone saying he's been suspended again. I don't see it happening. We have him cheap this year, and we likely won't be able to sign him because of his history of suspensions. The contract would contain too much legal jargon regarding his pay and suspension stuff, that we'll likely franchise him for a TON of money, but who cares? Josh is playing for basically one million this year, and next year with the franchise tag it'll be $15 million or so. So we get Gordon for 2 years for $16 million. I'm cool with that. And what's the best part? Franchise tag is guaranteed. Josh will secure his financial security for his family. Am I looking too far to the future? Possibly. He's broken our hearts a dozen times, but it's different now. I know it. I FEEL it. When you look at our offensive skill players, it doesn't even RESEMBLE what we had last year. You can now see why I was so adamant about signing Alex Smith. A durable, accurate, and deadly QB who doesn't turn it over, and excels at getting the ball to people in space. You saw what Alex did last year with weapons. It's not a big stretch to say the Browns somehow have BETTER ones. Alas, we didn't make it happen and we got another playoff QB. Not as deadly, but very safe with the rock. Regardless, we have a real TEAM, and it's built on youth and a mixture of veteran talent. My biggest concern? Don't laugh...it's...our KICKER. So MANY NFL games come down to just a few points. Nobody knows this better than us. Gonzalez came on strong, somewhat, after a rocky start. But can he lock it down? Can he deliver the goods when our downtrodden, disrespected, and snake-bitten team needs a kick to finally win? I just don't know. I had a big cup of coffee and I wrote a ton of garbage, so I apologize. I don't really expect anyone to read the whole thing, but I sure had fun writing it. I just love this team and I want so much to have fun again watching on Sundays.
