  1. Posting links that are years old trying to prove a point? Yes, it absolutely DOES matter you blockhead. You're clueless, as usual.

    Murray is essentially a smaller version of Lamar Jackson. Only difference better accuracy and runs less....

    Black Monday 2022

    minor bump.. Mike Mayock joins his pal Jon Gruden in the unemployment line....
  4. "It's a business".. D'Ernest Johnson is in line for a massive pay raise based on his play this past year too.....
  5. And your spin is getting really old Cal, especially when someone bothers to check out the link.... Cal's great at posting links to stuff that's a year old, or in this particular case years old that has ZERO relevance to the 2022 off season. Let me put it this way for the thick headed one out there.... Great... Baker is shooting for 17-0. Nothing wrong with confidence or even being a little bit cocky. I'm taking some of his comments on being damn near arrogant. I know me better than anyone else. Sorry Mr. Mayfield you don't, certainly not when it comes to specifics you need to work on. I wish you well, but you're starting to piss me off with an ever increasing shitty attitude. Me against the world. MHO? Browns could well have made the playoffs if Baker was willing to admit to himself that he was playing like crap, done the right thing, and let Keenum take over.

    No luck there, long range forecast for Nashville is mid 30s with little chance of rain. But it's currently too far out to be 100% certain.

    Look for the Bengals to try and turn it into another track meet like they did against the Raiders. This time around I'm all in favor of Cinci going the "one and done" route.

    Oh, and didya notice Tex... Kelce is another Cleveland guy. Even named his High School (Cleveland Heights) when they did the 3 second picture intros.
  9. Regarding Allen, you're preaching to the choir... And Cal's crowing about Baker's "tremendous work ethic".... Well, that doesn't mean diddly squat if he's working on the wrong things, or working on the right things in the wrong way.... In a nutshell, that's why you absolutely need an outside expert who has a trained eye to make suggestions. Had a personal experience of that when I threw my racket in the car and headed down to Hilton Head for some R&R. Decided to take a lesson and hit some balls with the Club Pro, after 5 minutes... Well, your footwork could be a lot better. BTW, we played a set later, and he didn't shut me out either. EDIT: And if you bothered to play that tweet in the link.. Well said... the reason the Browns kept putting a wounded Mayfield out there was primarily because he was the #1 overall pick. If he had been taken in the third round (Like Charlie Frye) would Stef still have been playing him? I doubt it.
  10. Well, I don't.. Again, sorry... Standing next to someone and putting a measuring tape on them are two different critters entirely. FWIW, before I started shrinking in my old age I measured nearly 6'2", 1\2" short of that... I met Dough Dieken decades ago face to face several times at Browns Backers functions.. And you'd never convince me he's 6'5" either.
  11. Sorry... Not according to pro football reference.. (And a lot of other sites too)... Favre 6'2", 222.... Baker 6'1, 215... I call that statistically insignificant, and the 6'1" was a combine measurement. FWIW.. Brees 6'0", 209... Midget Murray 5'10", 207 (almost no one believes that though) BTW, Joe Montana was 6'2"- you're not going to convince me one stinking inch in height makes that huge a difference.

    You're the GM...

    But didn't you just love those screenshots of the Steeler faithful showing him some love at the end of the game? 🤮🤮🤮 Oh, Ben's fallen down to just maybe "average". Watt, (DPOY), Heyward, and the Steeler D managed to keep it close for 15 minutes... Then Mahomes figured out... just throw it somewhere Watt isn't. PS- Haden should call it a career too....
  13. 1) Ditto, though Cal doesn't believe that ..I had Rosen as a distant 3rd, and Allen as a second round pick... 2) Then you're going to fail Baker... Self examination won't work.... Sorry- I may not know all that much about NFL Quarterbacks throwing a football, but one thing I feel competent to expound on, having played the game on the collegiate level- is top level Tennis players. They ALL have private coaches. Novak, Nadal, Serena, ALL of them... Sure Baker... after you hit a tennis serve 20, 30,000 times you should be able to do it in your sleep. Hate to tell you as far as throwing mechanics work, or realizing that there's some major flaws in your game that an outside eye could help you in a big way, go ahead, cocky away. You already proved to me (and to a lot of other Browns fans) that you're as stubborn as a Missouri Mule and get a big FAIL accurately self diagnosing your ability to accurately throw a football post injury.
  14. That's "short sighted", LOL. Baker is almost exactly the same height as Brett Farve, and taller than Brees. If you want to talk short, you can have Kyler Murray.

    Hey, not criticizing, even though you were wrong . If I had bothered to get in the prediction game, I still would have taken the Bengals and Bills- but I doubt anyone saw that blowout at Orchard Park coming. Regarding the Tampa- Eagles game, anyone with the intelligence above a trained monkey knew the Beagles were seriously overmatched. And Jalen Hurts sucks worse than Baker.... I had no call on the Niners- Scowboys game, but I'm seriously happy Dallas got beat- on one of the dumbest calls you're ever going to see. PS.... I'm sort of aware Invision powers this board, but you had better post a tutorial on how to upgrade.
