    Josh Gordon reinstated again

    Guy has more NFL lives than the proverbial nine of a cat. I agree with some of the conspiracy theories. I wouldn't bet against him playing in all 16 games- now that he's on the Patriots. I'ts why people stop and slow down to gawk at a car wreck.

    The Scary Week of Practice

    I'll have plenty of Orange Curacao for the Tailgate. bringing some of the Great Lakes Joe Thomas specials, and a bottle of Kenwood Chardonnay. That should about do it.

    The Scary Week of Practice

    Needed the local radio talking heads station before and after the game, WKNR seriously out of range..... But they may have done something there, upping their power output. Used to fade out before I got to Medina on the way back home, now I can usually get them as far as Columbus, and sometimes all the way to Dayton..... Some of the CIBB Tailgating a couple blocks from Lucas Oil. Great place to watch a game, but as usual going into enemy territory you have to deal with the occasional obnoxious Homer....

    Sleeping on Ravens

    Speaking of run first QBs- anyone else see Kyler Murray's highlights? Make that lowlights. Sacked for a safety. Thought he did a most excellent DeShone Kizer impersonation. Missing guys by 10 yards.

    Browns Depth Chart 2019

    Z if Corbett is struggling that badly, obviously he's not ready yet. Have to be patient- he may develop. We couldn't get Cam Erving run out of town fast enough, and he's still on the Chief's roster. BTW perusing the KC depth chart, our old pal Austin Reiter is listed as the starting center. As a high second round pick we have significant $$$ tied up in Corbett, so he's not going anywhere- at least this year.

    LOL, YOU should be so lucky.... If it was regular season, he'd be out there playing.

    The Scary Week of Practice

    Well, stuff like this happens- but it just because it's against another team doesn't make it any more frequent.... Wasn't one of our guys fortunately. You can't put the players in bubble wrap, and looks like this may have been one of those non contact injuries that turns into a season ending one. BTW heard on Training Camp Daily Freddie is just about out of the NFLPA mandated max of 14 practices in pads. https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/scary-moment-from-colts-browns-joint-practice-as-daurice-fountain-reportedly-dislocates-fractures-ankle/

    The Scary Week of Practice

    Since I'll be at the game Saturday (it's a shorter drive for me to Indy than Cleveland) checked out what the CIBB Central Indiana Browns Bakers were doing. They had a significant presence yesterday and again will today at the practices. Meeting up with them before the game at one of their Tailgates. EDIT: Found this.... https://www.clevelandbrowns.com/news/browns-welcomed-by-plenty-of-their-own-fans-put-in-a-good-first-day-of-work-in-j ALSO:

    Browns potential landing spot for Clowney?

    As they say- it's not that simple.... And it wouldn't cost a first round pick either according to the article. https://247sports.com/nfl/cleveland-browns/Article/Jadeveon-Clowney-Browns-Trade-134440398/?utm_source=247Sports Newsletter&utm_medium=Newsletter&utm_campaign=190814_131342_Cleveland Browns&utm_content=Image&liveconnect=CA-1F-A7-07-02-43-35-CA-71-7D-7D-AF-89-03-3E-6C190814_131342ClevelandBrowns We get Clowney as a one year rent-a-player at $15 million. That $15 million will count against next years cap number, and we're already going to be up against the wall in 2020. So a trade for Clowney makes little sense. Just hoping Gamblin' John isn't going to push all his chips in the middle of the table this season. Clowney = Super Bowl or bust this year, and we'll worry about 2020 when it gets here. Too soon to make that move. My POV.

    Browns potential landing spot for Clowney?

    The short of it is- we cant afford him. Clowney obviously wants Aaron Donald money. We already have a ton of money, as was previously mentioned- already tied up in the d-line. I could possibly see the Colts as being interested. Ravens would be interested, but would have to do some fancy footwork with the cap. Plus, we just shipped one pouter off- to Houston no less, and I doubt Dorsey would be keen on bringing in another one to replace him.

    Duke Johnson traded

    Cap hell is right around the corner when Garrett and Baker come off of their rookie deals. Cowboys predicament. Dak wants $40 million a year? Get outta here with that crap, he's not a top 10 qb by any stretch of the imagination. Hope if Baker develops into the qb we think he's going to be- he'll take the Brady approach, take less than market value in exchange for Super Bowl wins.

    Duke Johnson traded

    If we do get the third round pick, it will likely be a low one. but it gives you ammunition to move up in the second round.

    Redrafting the NFL

    How far back do you want to go? Current or potential long term talent is the yardstick? Who would I take for the Browns right now? Guys like Brady and Brees are certain HOFers, but are at the end of their careers. Best players in the NFL right now? NFLN already answered that question. http://www.nfl.com/network/top100 Or you want to build a team at best at a given position.

    Browns Depth Chart 2019

    I won't totally rehash the Browns drafting ineptitude BM- before Myles, but it's not pretty. Since 1999 the browns have drafted top 10 nine times. Only the Joes- Thomas and Haden lived up to their draft status, the rest unperformed or were flat out busts. We also pulled off the amazing quarterback trifecta bust @ #21 with Quinn, Weeden, and Manziel. I'm of the opinion if we ever wind up with that pick again we need to trade out of it.

    Browns Depth Chart 2019

    0-16 was the cumulative FAIL wasting (I've lost count of) first and second round picks on bums. By comparison, if a fifth round pick busts, not nearly as disastrous.
