  1. Pick Six

    Browns - Darnold Rosen - Bills Allen - Jets Mayfield - Broncos Jackson - Dolphins Rudolph - Saints
  2. Landry to sign extension

    Seems a lot of people are underestimating Landry, and the impact of possession/slot receivers. This has been one of the greatest weaknesses of Browns offenses for the past decade. 2 things, consistency and ability to separate quickly. For a comparison, Brady destroys the league every year with Landry-type recievers (but less talented) and TEs. Best way to keep LBs on their heels is to force them to consider coverage issues. Duke, Landry, and Njoku (if he continues to develop) could be the best benefits to our running game. The "go-deep" and outside WRs are seriously overrated. They may put safeties on their heels but they rarely lead teams to championships. Rant over...
  3. USC QBs Overrated

    This is really a dumb conversation. Tennessee is a good example... how many good QBs were before Manning, or Miami (OH) (Big Ben), Michigan (Brady), Cal (Rodgers), and so on... which college they went to means absolutely nothing...
  4. Blowing up the QB rankings

    Jackson's biggest issue is his mechanics, particularly footwork. It has gotten better but not ideal. He has a very skinny base which you would think will lead to inaccuracy. He seems to overcome it, but Im sure some NFL Defensive minds can conjure up a way to make that an issue. Darnold has a slow delivery, which can cause major issues with the defensive speed of the NFL game, particularly with consistency as he forces himself to be a second faster in his decision making. Allen is all over the place. His arm is strong but there is not much else to like. His footwork needs to improve as does his pocket awareness. His arm talent reminds me of Kizer, in that he forces some throws which cause him to miss the mark. Rosen's body is not ideal. He has good mechanics (you can tell his parents sent him to a bunch of camps growing up) but I wonder about his instincts and intangibles. The sped up NFL game could be overwhelming if he doesnt put in the film work. Mayfield... if he was 2 inches taller he would be a no-brainer 1st pick. I said the EXACT same thing about Russell Wilson a few years ago, and he turned out alright. He didnt play against good D often but when he did, he performed well. Arm is good enough which is all you really need. 1. Mayfield, 2. Rosen, 3. Darnold, 4. Jackson, 5. Allen I think 4 of 5 of those guys have a good shot at being quality starters. I just hope at least one of them is... the one the Browns pick.
  5. Were Going To The Freaking Super Bowl

    Good news... link?
  6. Bridge QB Over Troubled Waters

    He doesn't really have the beat of options. My guess is Denver if they have the $$$. Otherwise, he's picking amongst teams that need him to be the "savior"
  7. Bridge QB Over Troubled Waters

    Nick Foles anybody??
  8. Chiefs Trade Alex Smith to the Skins

    I was listening to Cousins's interview on Jim Rome today when he said his top priority is winning and getting to the Super Bowl... sure didn't sound like he would even consider the Browns... Oh well... 2-3 more years of garbage...
  9. Cousins would "seriously consider" the Browns

    http://cleveland.cbslocal.com/2018/01/30/thought-of-joining-browns-does-not-excite-chiefs-qb-alex-smith/amp/?__twitter_impression=true For all the Smith hopefuls...
  10. Cousins would "seriously consider" the Browns

    Except not at all. Draft picks and cash are NOT 2 comparable assets. Worrying about re-signing a guy 4 years down the line is certainly one way to ensure perpetual suckage for our beloved Browns... we can worry 1 year, maybe 2 years for a superstar, but 4 years for a guy we just drafted... should NOT influence our decision-making THIS offseason...
  11. Cousins would "seriously consider" the Browns

    Why is the assumption, if we sign Cousins we dont draft an elite QB? We have enough draft and cap capital to do both. If the rookie beats out Cousins in year 2 or 3, you trade Cousins to a QB-needy team, or you front-load the guaranteed money Cant see giving up a 2 for Smith- basically a 1-2 year rental...
  12. Cousins would "seriously consider" the Browns

    I respect your guys' opinions, but the Cousins situation just doesn't happen... A franchise QB becoming a FA (and it still might NOT happen). We have to at least try. There are 1-2 season turnarounds all over the NFL, and nothing would help that happen more than a vet QB with the talent Kirk has. I have a hard time seeing the Smith + Draft Pick being a better choice, because Draft picks are such a gamble AND they take 2-3+ years just to develop... In pro sports, you just CAN'T afford to pass up a great opportunity because you might not see it again...
  13. Cousins would "seriously consider" the Browns

    Draft picks are like buying a new car... their value drops in half the moment you make the pick...
  14. 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...
  15. 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...
