    Hi guys. Now that it's no-news season time in football, I think it's appropiate to give you an update on Marta. She was discharged one week ago and is back home. Her status is as follows: she has complete intelectual abilities and understands everything; she can't keep her eyes focused on people, has a lost stare, but keeps some sense of humor. She can walk but needs help to keep balance as she has none on her own, so she mostly goes on wheelchair. She can eat but hasn't fully recovered her swallowing, so it's mostly purées for her I'd say, but can eat solid. She can barely talk and it's like she runs out of air when trying. The thing is that swallowing and relearning to breathe and speak are the processes that take the longest in these cases, so it's not surprise there. Having her back home has given back some "normality" to familys life (daughters were most of the times at granparents') but it's a whole new battle from now on. An ambulance takes her to rehab every day so she's still progressing but this will be a long process and nobody knows when will she stop progressing. Her family is happy but the one that struggles the most (for obvious reasons) is her husband. He takes care of her and is very caring (more than ever, actually) but suffers a lot. Anyway, he has still faith, hasn't given up and rests in his family, so there's something to be positive about. Thank you everyone again for your prayers, we still pray for them to God, so she fully recovers and gives them strength in this battle, so we are grateful to anyone who joins us anytime

    After a couple of days to digest Baker being picked #1 overall, and I'm now totally on the Baker Bandwagon. There's a lot to like about the kid and since he's now a Brown, I'm going to focus on all of the good things he brings to the team, and I'll let some of you mope about on the questionable ones he brings. What got me aboard the BB? It's simple..... Who am I going to put more trust in at this point in time, all of those kool, self appointed Draft Gurus that have only seen the tip of the iceberg (but like to pretend they've seen the whole thing), or the group of people that have spent well over a thousand man hours on seeing the whole iceberg? So, it's just that phuckin' simple, and as long as the kid doesn't do anything stupid on - or especially off the field, I'll be the official Captain of the SS BB.................. All Aboard.

    'Twas the night before Draftmas And all around the boards Browns fans were gathering In large nervous hoards. Refrigerators stocked full of liquor beer & wine. every Browns fan is hoping they don't need it this time. The wives are nestled all snug in their beds While the drafts of the past were still haunting our heads So sitting at the computer In my season tickets cap. I started to wade through all the internet crap On Brownsboard, on Cooler on Reddit I read Then to Twitter for tweets From Adkins, Albright and Fred Lots of posters worrying that we will blow it. While grudges were blooming between the Dutchman and Poet I shuffle off slowly to get in my bed as this final thought Entered my head If the draft goes well We'll give Dorsey his due And if our draft sucks we'll probably blame it on Hue

    I know it will be the right choice. Because John Dorsey is making the choice - and he won't screw it up like previous administrations. Each QB has positives and negatives. I trust in Dorsey and his crew to sort through them and pick the right one for the Browns. These are the new Browns. This is a new front office populated by football guys. Their off-season moves have been fabulous. I expect more of the same from this draft - and I trust in John Dorsey. GO BROWNS!

    Baker Mayfield will settle our QB problem. How does it feel knowing we have a guy that will lock down this spot for the long term. No more QB talk- now we can focus our attention on the next thing... finding the next Barkley!

    I'm optimistic because I'm watching interviews of Mayfield and he looks like a nice, serious guy who will try his best. In the Combine pressers, I think that Rosen and Mayfield did the best, and I still like the way both communicate. It gives me confidence. My optimism is also enhanced thanks to the rumors of other teams having Mayfield higher in their boards than we thought. That Allen and Rosen were picked in 6 and 10 kind of confirms it. Had they been top prospects in other boards and it would have been 4 QBs in first 5 picks. Anyway, I don't think that Dorsey is out on a limb because: 1. It's his first draft. 2. He already signed Tirod Taylor as a reliable (though not amazing) starter. 3. He has a reputation. He's been successful in the Chiefs, it's not like he's a newcomer that has to show he's worth the position (that could be said was Sashi's case).

    And I bought Dorsey's explanation that he had reviewed how many times Garrett had been just short of getting the QB because of poor CB play. That plus Ogbah's apparent recovery has made me realize that my wanting Chubb to go with Garrett was not as important as getting CBs to stop the short game that I know was being used on us every game. I'm looking forward to seeing if theory translates to results this year.

    The throws were there. Go watch the games. If anything, his arm was more than strong enough, and he wasn’t technically sound - threw with way too much arm and wrist. That tells you all you need to know. When he actually drives the ball, it’s still accurate, and velocity is above average. The fact he can complete passes at a high level from multiple release points is a huge bonus. he also has a great grasp of “the plan” and knows how to find open players after his primary reads are gone. throws at an elite level while moving. Finally, he has what Bill Walsh called his single greatest and most significant QB trait: Spontaneous Genius. This is not a scramble and throw trait, but one the best skills a successful QBs possess. It’s also being able to maintain composure and execute positive plays when things don’t go according to plan; and also the ability to execute in high leverage spots—3rd down, red zone, fourth quarter. People crowned Darnold in May 2017 and never looked back. (People are prideful). Darnold regressed. Mayfield rose. The browns decided Mayfield was the better pick. Right or wrong... I believe what I wrote above is why.

    When did he play in an NFL secondary? Do you really think Gregg Williams repeatedly lining Peppers up in another area code reflected disappointment in Peppers' ability or perhaps more so in the foot speed of Corners Jamar Taylor and Jason McCourty (whom we got after TN replaced him w/1st round speed just 1 year before we did the same thing)??? Didn't we also just trade Taylor for a 6th round pick in 2020? Aside from drafting a corner that runs in the 4.3s at #4 overall, we've also traded for/signed FA Corners up the wazoo this off season. Many started or got a lot of reps on NFL teams that actually WON football games last year. One of those corners (Randall) is projected to return to his college comfort zone of FS. Most of Peppers' experience at Missedagain was up in the box playing like an extra LBer where he performed at an All Conference/All American level. Returning him to this comfort zone where he plays faster and more instinctual doesn't have to be a negative. I thought he had his best game against Pittsburgh when he was used more like he was used in college from where he lined up to what Gregg Williams asked of him. It's okay to take a talented college football player and play him at a different NFL position/role where his skill set offers him the best outcomes. Cleveland did that with Ozzie Newsome when they drafted an All American WR from Alabama and transformed him into an NFL TE with a Hall of Fame career. More recently, we did it with Schobert going from OLB to MLB. It sounds like our DC will be returning Randall and Peppers back to roles that got them regarded well enough to be drafted in round 1. In order to do that, Williams has to be far more comfortable with the Corners he's putting on the perimeter. Let's see what happens...

    Good idea, I'm not going to do it though, because once these guys become Browns I support them too much. Mayfield was gaining fast on Darnold for me, and now that we picked him ... it seems perfect. I like him better as the face of the franchise and I'm starting to think he'll do better on the field as well. Good luck to Barkley, but I basically don't care what he does now when he's not playing us. Fuck New York ... they got our sloppy seconds. Zombo

    Um, there's a few guys here with enough money- they could buy a trailer park if they had the mind to. So can the insults, Mr. Holier than Thou. If you're a true old timer, let me remind you if then was now, Jim Brown would be in jail for beating up on women. So- you like name calling on Mayfield. Yup, he got drunk once that we all know about, that doesn't make him a big time juicer. Got any concrete proof otherwise, other times? You had better be a complete tea-totaler before you play the drunkard card on Baker. You're also way out of line if you don't think after the Manziel fiasco, the Browns didn't have intel on every bar in Norman and interviewed everyone they could think of about Baker's off-field proclivities. PS, as far as we know, Callaway isn't in jail. You must have forgotten Caleb Brantley had a brush with the law before we drafted him, so why not follow a team that's 100% choir boys? I'll give you a hint- you won't be able to find one.

    https://sports.yahoo.com/2018-draft-magnets-mayfield-browns-045315581.html?src=rss • They got very little action on the No. 4 pick. Four teams called Dorsey with interest in moving up. None got serious. Only one team (I’d guess Arizona) offered a 2019 first-round pick as part of the package to move, which is surprising considering that two quarterbacks were still on the board when the fourth pick came up. The team willing to include its first-rounder next year said to Dorsey before the draft began: “I’m coming up for one player and one player only, and that’s Baker Mayfield.” As Dorsey said: “I knew all along it wasn’t going to happen.” So for those wondering why didn’t the Browns try to pillage some team by moving down a few spots, they never had the chance. • Good nugget from Peter Schrager about the Patriots and Mayfield. On the NFL Network telecast, Schrager said the Patriots spent time Monday with Mayfield, which raised some eyebrows. Mike Reiss, in his Sunday column on ESPN, added the fact that it was offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels who visited Mayfield in his hometown of Austin on Monday. That would lend credence to the theory in some corners that if Mayfield dropped down to, say, six or seven in round one, New England might have been able to offer enough to move up from the 23rd pick in the round to tempt a team in trade. • Sodium pentathol, and defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, came up in the wake of the Denzel Ward pick. Truth serum. My question to Dorsey on Friday morning: “If we gave Gregg Williams sodium pentathol right now, who would he have said he wanted with the fourth pick—Denzel Ward or Bradley Chubb?” Dorsey pulled out his cell phone and rang Williams. I asked him the question. Williams: “Ward. The reason is our need for a press cover cornerback. Denzel probably plays that position as well as anyone I’ve seen in college football in some time. We probably play the most press of any team in the league. There’s another reason. I’ve got a video of 28 snaps of Myles Garrett pass-rushes last year where he gets within two steps or less of the quarterback when the ball comes out. Basically, we aren’t covering long enough to let him get to the quarterback. Myles and others—especially [defensive end] Emmanuel Ogbah—will get more chances because of Denzel.” Ogbah, Williams said, was a major reason why the Browns went Ward over Chubb. “Ogbah’s a rising star in this league,” Williams said. “He’s got a chance to be Chubb.” High praise. ------------------- Dorsey knew for quite a while that he wanted Mayfield...and Williams knew he wanted Ward. (I guess you've gotta cover the receivers at least a LITTLE BIT in order to get a sack) Go Browns!

    Rosen is also an idiot. Proving my theory of why he made his comment that 9 other teams made a mistake before he was picked. You don't have a crystal ball. Mayfield is accurate, has a lot of heart, and tremendous upside. True he's not Drew Brees, just like Dorsey said he's not Manziel. He's his own man....

    GOOD! Those so called "experts" have rated our drafts very high the last few years, so I cheerfully accept low grades from them. They've proven to me they have no credibility. Our true grades on this draft will be more apparent in 2-3 years. I am also glad we kept our 2nd round picks. Mike

    You bitches not giving this kid a chance yet wanted us to keep Kizer as our starter???? Idiots, morons. I'm ashamed to be a browns fans because of how stupid their fans are. He is going to sit and learn. Tyrod is the starter. Mayfield had the best stats out of all the QB's. They obviously really wanted him and word was the jets also did. They would not have been able to take saquon and Mayfield. They obviously also valued defensive back help more then D line help. Shut the Shmuck up and keep the mouthes shut until these picks are bust. If they are not bust then shut the Shmuck up and split. go find another team.

    I don’t mind taking a flyer on Callaway, if he doesn’t work out...it’s not like we haven’t wasted a 4th round pick before. I remember a 4th round WR drafted by Ray Farmer by the name of Vince Mayle. He didn’t even make the 53 man roster (or even make the PS) and was cut before the regular season began.

    Please- just get over it already. In your Saquon wet dream at #1, Mayfield goes #3 to the Jets. The talking head "experts" are blasting the Browns for a lousy choice, but the more I read the more I'm convinced it was Baker at #1, or not at all. Caught one of those Sports Science things, and besides crazy accuracy, Mayfield's release time is on the level of Aaron Rodgers. Better get your Giants jersey, because those fans are already hallucinating Super Bowl with Saquon.
