  1. Cousins would "seriously consider" the Browns

    I can't believe there are so many anti-Cousins guys after what we've trotted out at QB the past 20 years... Is it money? Rather wait for a draft pick to develop? Age? Listen, he's the ONLY win-now option... Unless you are all content with 2-3 more years of crap? ... I don't get it. 4 years with him at QB and we at least get to see some exciting football in that time...
  2. The Jacksonville approach

    The Jags approach: 1. Hired a new FO guy, a "football guy"... check 2. New coach to change the culture.. FAIL 3. Draft a top 3 QB... we will see 4. Commit to running the football and playing great defense... personnel-close, coaching-nowhere near 5. Stack starting 11 ( on both sides) with 1st & 2nd rounders and FAs... getting there with picks, need more impact FAs Overall, the Browns still have a lot of work to do...
  3. I like Miller. We really have 2 receiving needs: 1- a true, reliable redzone weapon; and 2- a shifty slot-type guy who gets off the ball, gets open, and has solid hands. I believe Miller could be the perfect 2nd guy. They tried to force Njoku into the 1st spot last year but it never seemed to connect; however, between him, Gordon, and yes... Coleman one of those guys SHOULD be able to do that... they have the talent, not the reliability... it wouldn't hurt to add another option, obviously
  4. Should the Browns be looking at another TE?

    I liked him during the draft... he hasnt done much yet in the NFL. Maybe he's a "late bloomer".
  5. Biggest Draft Miss

    Sam Bradford... I really thought he was the next HOF QB... AJ Hawk... kind of a disappointment compared to what I thought he would become... move over Ray Lewis... Another Buckeye, Mike Doss.... total stud at OSU, then what...
  6. Cousins would "seriously consider" the Browns

    Oh, I would. Look at his complete body of work, the team around him, and his coach... Far better than what Cousins has been working with... Exactly why wouldn't we...? We need a QB and he's bet on himself, and put himself in this position by his work on the field, and not to mention still has a giant chip on his shoulder.. Dude can play, and I'd do just about anything to get us a QB like that...
  7. Cousins would "seriously consider" the Browns

    As far as Smith, I wouldnt trade much for him because the Chiefs will cut him before the $20M cap hit takes effect. The only benefit in trading is taking him from another suitor, but how much is that worth for a mediocre 33-year old QB? I believe Cousins is the better option. He's the immediate fix to our biggest problem of the last 20 years. There is NOBODY else out there that can do that for us...
  8. The First-pick Draft game thread

    Ill start with FA and take Alex Smith. He'll ask KC to release him and Dorsey will work his magic. Then, I'll go get Juice Landry. Add Jimmy Graham and franchis Crowell (why not). Give me DeMarcus Lawrence and then were ready to draft. Your score is: 21280 (GRADE: A-) Your Picks:Round 1 Pick 1: Josh Rosen, QB, UCLA (A)Round 1 Pick 4: Saquon Barkley, RB, Penn State (A+)Round 2 Pick 1: James Washington, WR, Oklahoma State (A-)Round 2 Pick 4: Vita Vea, DT, Washington (A-)Round 2 Pick 30: Marcus Allen, FS, Penn State (A+)Round 3 Pick 1: Hercules Mataafa, OLB, Washington State (A)Round 4 Pick 1: Donte Jackson, CB, LSU (A+)Round 4 Pick 28: Brandon Facyson, CB, Virginia Tech (A+)Round 5 Pick 1: Nyheim Hines, RB, North Carolina State (A+)Round 5 Pick 24: Micah Kiser, ILB, Virginia (B+)Round 6 Pick 1: Kurt Benkert, QB, Virginia (A-)Round 7 Pick 1: D.J.

  9. Thoughts On Today's Parade

    Sure, 0-16 is one thing, but a parade... I'd love to hear LeBron's response if somebody asked him if that would affect a FA decision... Obviously the record will stop the vets who want to win a SB from coming, but we need FAs who are a little younger and want their 1st big contract... coming off their rookie contract, and want to be starters w/ the chance to make a major impact on this team. Thats why we shop the 2nd string amd WR3s... these guys need an opportunity to prove themselves.. I honestly dont want any 3rd contract guys who only want a paycheck... ala Britt most recently, and many others before him...
  10. Thoughts On Today's Parade

    Shelton made a good point. If this parade changes even 1 FA's mind about coming to Cleveland then these fans did themselves and the rest of us fans a major disservice. We'll never know for sure, but this was an embarrassment that could make the FO's job even harder. Regardless of the "intent" of the parade, you cannot change how others react to it. Players will see this and say "I don't want to go there and be embarrassed by those fans". A lesson to you all (from a behavior specialist), you cannot chose how others perceive your actions. Same as what happened with the anthem protest. You CANNOT choose others' interpretations. If kneeling is disrespectful in somebody's opinion, telling them your "intent" does not make the action less disrespectful in that person's view. If a player views the parade as an embarrassment, you cannot change their opinion by saying it was about "passion" and "sticking it to the FO." Sorry, just not how the world works... Saying we should have a 0-16 parade is one thing, kind of funny; however, actually doing it was just stupid...
  11. The Browns are on the clock!

    We get our Aikman, Emmett, Irvin trio and a bunch of great players... Lol... This is nowhere near what the real draft will look like. Closer to draft time, this site gets a little more interesting.

  13. Alex smith

    I'm all for Smith or Cousins. KC would save $17 million in cap space by releasing Smith and the full $22 million if they can trade him before his bonus kicks in. If we get Smith, we still draft a QB at #1, and he sits 2-4 years. If we get Cousins (odds are much lower), then we don't HAVE to take a QB at 1 bc Kirk would be our starter for 5+ years possibly. The only benefit to still drafting a QB at 1 would be, if all goes well, we shouldn't have another opportunity to draft this high.
  14. Rosen and Darnold declare for NFL Draft

    Listen, if you go back the past 4 or 5 years all you will see is "this QB class is weak..." The reality is quite a few good QBs have come out. The hard part is evaluating how these QBs in today's college game will translate to the NFL. Very fee college systems are pro style, so there is tons of "projecting" that needs to happen. Hopefully, we have the guys now that are able to do that...
