  1. After 30 years of being a Browns fanboi this Connecticut Yankee is making his first pilgrimage to Cleveland to see the Browns in their home stadium. Looking forward to seeing y'all in the Muni lot!

    Dez on his way ?

    Here's hoping that Flash gets back on the field sooner than later. If the Browns pick up Dez I hope that his "cancerous" attitude doesn't come with him. A one-year "prove it" deal and let's get on with gettin' on.
  3. Had a couple of pints of this brew tonight in CT. It's a Cleveland brewer, and the style is New England IPA - which means cloudy orange with citrus aroma and hop profile. Not a bad take on the style, although it could use an infusion of Citra hops to give it more of the traditional citrusy NE flava. Anybody have it in The Land? If so, what do you think?

    ESPN gripes and praise

    Ridiculous. Reads like the guys polled don't have a clue. Dorsey has them all beat.

    Study has Browns as one of the WORST fan bases

    That's what happens when you hold a parade for going 0-16.

    Platform "Bucket of Gloves" Beer

    I'm spoiled because I'm a short ride away from Tree House Brewery and have a fridge full of Julius right now - the quintessential NE IPA. Always interested in what folks from other parts of the country think of the style.
  7. It's likely that you'll be able to place wagers at any lottery terminal as well. No need to go to a casino. The lottery may be granted the opportunity to offer sports betting on the internet too.

    What was that I saw? Minkah Fitzpatrick's jock on the 5 yard line? LOL!

    POLL: When will Baker start?

    Perhaps 2019.

    Austin Corbett

    Lots of options and flexibility afforded the Browns with the selection of Corbett. That's a good thing. Regardless of what happens this year I envision that Dorsey will select one of the premier LTs in next year's draft - further enhancing a team strength.

    The teams nucleus

    If Gordon balls out he's getting paid - by the Browns. That kind of player is exactly who you spend the cap on.

    Overall Draft Reaction... your thoughts?

    Both PFF and QBASE have the most thorough quarterback analysis of any of the draft prospect rating entities. It's incredibly gratifying to know that Baker Mayfield was the highest rated QB -BY FAR - by both of these services. Those that criticize the pick simply don't know. Those that complain about Mayfield's antics either forgot what it was like to be 21 years old or got butt-hurt when he beat OSU. We've got a real NFL GM now. Sit back and enjoy the ride - it's going to be fantastic.

    Overall Draft Reaction... your thoughts?

    For me Walter Football has always been a joke. They've reinforced that here by calling the Browns draft "homoclitic" and claiming that it should have been "heteroclitic" instead. JFC -You're writing for football fans, not high school kids studying for the SATs. Know your audience!

    Great draft. Nice combination of studs, needs picks, and high upside flyers. In Dorsey we trust. Way to go, my UConn brother!
  15. Better than a bunch of UCLA fans.

    Baker Mayfield Thread

    I'm all on the Baker train. Trust in Dorsey.

    Denzel Ward

    Dorsey picking players at the key positions. Doing a great job. The Browns already have a stud pass rushing DE. Didn't have a shut down corner - now they do.
  20. 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!
  21. I sure am. I've got huge faith in Dorsey's ability to pick talent. When with the Packers as their Director of College Scouting (2000-2011) he was credited with making the Packers one of the best drafting teams in the NFL. While GM at Kansas City he selected Pro Bowlers Travis Kelce (2013 round 3), Marcus Peters (2015 round 1), Tyreek Hill (2016 round 5) and Kareem Hunt (2017 round 3). During that same period the Browns had only one Pro Bowler - Joe Schobert in 2017. Dorsey's ability to select Pro Bowl talent was arguably 4X better than the Browns during that period. I'm looking forward to the Browns having 4X better drafts.

    Trade Rumors and Specualtion

    To me this is the most logical multi-team trade possibility involving the Browns. However, the Browns can make out similarly by coordinating the trades themselves as follows: 1.1: Browns - Sam Darnold, QB USC1.2: Giants - Saquan Barkley, RB Penn State1.3: Jets - Baker Mayfield, QB Oklahoma1.4: Bills - Josh Allen, QB Wyoming 1.5: Broncos - Josh Rosen, QB UCLA 1.6: Browns - Bradley Chubb, DE NC State Trade #1: Browns send 1.4 to the Bills for #s 12, 22, 53 and #1 2019 Trade #2: Browns send #s 12, 22 and 64 to the Colts for #6 The Colts are looking for more picks in this draft and the Browns deliver 3 of them. The Browns move up from 64 to 53, add a 1st next year, and get their guy at 6. The Bills get their QB.
