  1. Every year the pundits say that the upcoming draft doesn't have the talent that previous drafts had. Mark Miller from BR claims this draft is the 2nd worse in the last 10 years, ahead of only the 2013 draft. Personally, I'm not impressed with Darnold, Rosen or Mayfield. I haven't seen enough of Josh Allen to have an opinion. Despite a perceived lack of quality at the QB position, the likelihood is that - because of need - as many as six QBs get taken in the first round. If that is indeed the case and the Browns are drafting 1st and 7th (Houston's pick) I'd be fine with taking Derwin James, Safety out of FSU and arguably the best player in the draft, and then taking a QB with the 7th pick. If the Browns have a definite favorite at QB, trade up to take him 2nd or 3rd. This doesn't guarantee that the QB position would be solved for the Browns, but it would probably guarantee that the Browns' defense has its safeties for the next five years.
  2. Hue on the end of the first half: "It's on me"

    Hue needs to relinquish the OC responsibilities and just be the head coach. Hire an OC to run the offense.
  3. Pryor disappointing in DC

  4. Start Kevin Hogan!

    Does it really matter? Hogan has played his best ball as a reliever for the starter. That's his best role. That should be his only role. He had a week to prepare with the first string and he looked absolutely horrible. The number of overthrown passes was too many to count...and many of those could have been picked. At best Hogan is a backup. Kessler's arm leaves a lot to be desired, to the point that it is not of NFL caliber. His sideline throws could almost be timed with a sundial. He's also gun shy...as soon as the pocket breaks apart he's running for his life - probably the result of multiple concussions received last season. He does appear to be able to read and digest a defense, but he ducks for cover too soon, eliminating the opportunity to make a throw. Another player who, at best, is a backup. Kizer looks the part of a franchise quarterback: big, tall, mobile, cannon arm. His most glaring problem is arguably one that is fixable - the ability to accurately read a defense. He's got to be able to determine what coverage the defenders are playing, identify where the defenders are located, anticipate their movements, and select a receiver who will be open against that defense. So far he's been unbelievably inefficient in this regard - particularly in the red zone. On Gruden's pre-draft QB show Kizer appeared the most knowledgeable chalk talker of any of the QB prospects, which makes his performance to-date all the more frustrating. Other QB's have had horrible first seasons that were plagued with tons of INTs, and then went on to have great careers (Aikman, Peyton). Not saying that Kizer is akin to those QBs, but perhaps the best thing for his development is to be on the field and play. He won't learn as much sitting on the sideline, and the team is not going anywhere with either Hogan or Kessler at the helm. But does it really matter? Are any of these players truly franchise quarterbacks? Because that's what the Browns need - and what the fans deserve. I'm all-in on taking the best QB available with the Browns first pick in the 2018 draft. Anything else at this point is patently unacceptable.

    I never indicated that I was referring to 2018 free agents. Bottom line: for the best interest of the team Kizer needs to sit. He's earned it.
  6. A few wins or higher draft pick?

    Blake Bortles 2.0 - TCPO's endorsement is the QB prospects' kiss of death.
  7. Hogans Heroes

    Kizer needs to sit and Hogan needs to start as the true #1 QB. The concern over Kizer's psyche is irrelevant. It's obvious that Hogan gives the Browns a much better chance to score points. At this point I'm worried a lot more about the psyche of the team if Kizer continues to play. Players play to win - and the current history of losing needs to be stopped. Otherwise many of the most talented Browns players will walk when they hit free agency and sign with teams that they perceive will actually be competitive - leaving the Browns to plug the holes with rookie draft picks and waiver wire acquisitions. Rinse, repeat.
  8. A few wins or higher draft pick?

    Win some GD games. Sick of this Bad News Bears Sheet happening on the field.
  9. Trump is the worst thing to happen to America since 9-11.
  10. ***Official Browns @ Colts Game Day Thread***

    Can the o-line please keep the Colts rush off of Kizer?!?!
  11. ***Official Browns @ Ravens Game Day Thread***

    Higgins was open. Poor throw by Kizer.
  12. ***Official Browns @ Ravens Game Day Thread***

    Hogan likes Higgins as a target. Even when he's in triple coverage, unfortunately.
