    Looking back on Bill

    Bite your tongue....I was never rooting for the Baltimore Browns. If it had been a new team in Cleveland after 3 years without anything, not sure I would've really been a fan. It would've turned into like the NBA for me, I'm happy for Cleveland when the Cavs win but I'm not rushing out buying Cavs merchandise either. I "rooted" for the Packers and Bears during our 3 years off because those cities and fan bases seemed to be like Cleveland. Probably would've stuck with one of those or just never had a true "favorite" team again.

    Pro pick'em league

    He doesn't forget to make picks...for some reason he signs on on Tuesday and picks just the Browns game and the Thursday night game and then figures I'll do the rest on Sunday. What makes no sense is once you've forgotten to go back Sunday and pick the rest of the games, why wouldn't you when you went on to pick the Browns game on Tuesday, just make a quick pick of all the rest of the games to make sure you never forget them all again. That part makes no sense to me. I pick them all Tuesday morning when I go on to check the standings from the week and then adjust Sunday morning if any injuries or anything weird came up during the week.

    I don't disagree really with any of that. Except thinking Philcox was a better option to win games.

    Looking back on Bill

    Correct...but Vinny was hurt when Bernie was released so Bill thought that Todd Philcox was a better option at QB than Bernie which was a pretty poor decision based on how that first start for Philcox went. At that time...Vinny was the better QB than Bernie. The decision that I question is releasing him to start Philcox.

    Looking back on Bill

    I agree. It's all technical semantics. The team of players moved or left or whatever you want to call it but as someone said, the players we rooted for in 95 were all playing in a different city in 96. We've gotten way off the original topic on this thread. Getting back on topic, I was never one who hated Bill when he was our coach, probably why I don't hate him now or hate the Patriots like so many do. Most of his decisions were probably correct at the time. Getting rid of Bernie was not one of those, especially considering the choice to replace was Charlie Philcox or whatever his name was. The team was heading in the right direction, up until the move was announced and then it all turned to shit. Should also be noted, that I didn't live in Cleveland during this time and it was pre internet so getting Browns news was not quite as easy as it is today.

    AAF question

    saying it sucks is an insult to suckage. It's worse than sucks.

    Browns sign Kareem Hunt

    That's basically where I am. Hopefully he uses the fact that he was out of a job and out of the league as a wake up call and doesn't do anything like this again. He deserves a 2nd chance but certainly not a third.

    Browns sign Kareem Hunt

    Point to any professional sports team that has that.

    Browns sign Kareem Hunt

    Very low risk possible high reward signing then.

    Browns sign Kareem Hunt

    Could be just a one year rental or who knows could be longer term. I've not seen what we are paying him at this point.

    Browns sign Kareem Hunt

    I believe that is correct as well or at least I read that Browns control his rights after this season.

    Browns sign Kareem Hunt

    He's gonna be 24 years old when the season starts. He lead the league in rushing and was well on his way this season as well. If he had just told the Chiefs the truth about this, he's still in KC and they probably win the super bowl with him. Dorsey has a history with him since he drafted him and all and Dorsey isn't afraid of a little PR issues if he thinks the guy can help the team win games. No question that Hunt makes the Browns a better team.

    Still not sure how it happens when you manage to pick the browns game every week. How do you make that mistake twice?

    Browns sign Kareem Hunt

    You're gonna need to find a new sport then snowflake. Hunt can help the team win games. Winning games is the goal of any franchise in the NFL (or any sport for that matter). Second, people deserve a 2nd chance to prove they learned from mistakes, and third who the hell are any of us to judge what this guy did or didn't do?

    Good guess. Basically wanted to steal that line from Zombo before he said congrats to everyone who finished in the top 20 or whereever that dork finished.

    Browns sign Kareem Hunt

    I don't like at all what he did and hope that it was a one time thing and I believe that everyone should have the opportunity for a 2nd chance. The statement is a nice first step but those are just words. His actions and the things he says and more importantly does going forward will tell if he stays in the league or is done before long. From a strictly football standpoint, its a great signing with huge upside and very little downside other than PR hits and that nonsense but who really cares what a bunch of talking heads on ESPN or where ever have to say anyways?

    Imagine Saquon at 1 and Mayfield at 4

    Nope....you're just an old fuddy duddy. Have to be a Madden playing schmoe to want to continually live in what if fantasy land.
  22. I have most all of my Indy 500 tickets (19 years in a row so far) but other than that I don't have many ticket stubs. I found one of my Browns tickets from when I was a kid and we had season tickets. Browns/Steelers game, old stadium. Section 36, Row U Seat 24, lower deck. I remember we were on the aisle and right around the 50 yard line on the visitors side of the field. Face value including tax was $27 on the ticket. No idea what year the ticket is from though.

    Imagine Saquon at 1 and Mayfield at 4

    How is that you what if clowns can't realize that if you take Barkley at #1 there is no guarantee that Mayfield is still sitting there at 4. Patriots and Jets reportedly both wanted him. Who's to say the Giants don't take him with Barkley off the board? Once again...slower for some of you to understand... Mayfield+Ward+Chubb is better than Barkley+whothehellknowswho'sgoingtobethereat4. Chubb had a great rookie season and that came in really only playing in 11 or games. Barkley had a nice solid rookie season. As asked in another thread, when was the last time a running back carried a team to a championship without a great QB?

    awwwwww...poor baby...no one wants to play your stupid fantasy and pointed out why it (A) wouldn't have happened and (b) why the combination of Mayfield, Ward and Chubb is better so you get a sandy diaper and announce you're leaving. Don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out
