  1. Sam Darnold

    That old thread might have accidentally gotten deleted, so Post your Sam comments here.
  2. Baker Mayfield Thread

    ^^^, or can Darnold fix his mechanics and fumbelitis, Allen his accuracy, and sorry Tour- I worry about Rosen's ability to stay healthy. Mayfield- Darnold, Darnold- Mayfield Thursday night. The others need not apply. I can live with Rosen if that's the choice. Just no to Allen- & I hope Lamar Jackson isn't in the discussion.
  3. Maybe I shouldn't be so harsh either. But my dislike of Allen as a prospect has nothing to do with Cal. It involves watching 5 complete games of his, and a hard view of the stats saying the odds are stacked against Josh to be another Elway. If he gets there, great. But the possibility of him winding up in the Boller or Ponder class of busts is far higher.
  4. Dorsey pre-draft presser

    Could it be the "control freak" learned something when he got booted out of KC? Or is it the leopard can't change his spots? Stay tuned.
  5. It's confirmed ... Sashi Sucked

    Ditto being a season ticket holder (and a traveling one on top of that- Houston & Indy last year) Mike & Steve but I have a different view of the parade. Sure the players got their feelings hurt, they were trying as hard as they could. Try harder this year, and rub a few $100 dollar bills on your bruised egos. Sorry, your best wasn't good enough, not even close. Don't want another parade? Win some games this year.
  6. Baker Mayfield Thread

    You haven't seen Po's 50 pages worth- in three different threads- of Barkley love and board rebuttal? There's hundreds of dollars and other miscellaneous bets he won't take that Barkley will not be the Browns pick at #1. Get your top QB first, and if Saquon isn't there at #4- it's no big deal. You take the best defensive player on the board instead- Chubb...
  7. Browns Schedule Thread

    Probably will make the trip again Gip. The Space City BB set things up pretty well. I'll assume they're booking the same hotel, if it was any closer to the stadium, it would be in the parking lot. Was pretty reasonable too.
  8. Browns Schedule Thread

    WHY? They gave the Steelers a bye the first game...
  9. #1 Overall Pick Trivia (Short)

    Sorry Gip, I'm not going back to the days of Jay Berwanger.... I doubt anyone else will either. #1 overall SB MVP Aikman? There, I'm done.
  10. Well, as the original board wino, I had a vacu-vin once upon a time, didn't like it. Here's why. When you create a vacuum on top of wine, it sucks all those nice volatile aromas out of the wine into the vacuum too. LOL, most bottles don't last long enough around here for me to do multiple tastings out of them. If I was going to try and preserve a great wine, I'd get a can of compressed nitrogen (same principle as those really pricey Cruvinets). The really old (20+ y.o.) wines I have start changing the minute you open them. I do have a bottle of Kenwood Sonoma chardonnay that's been sitting in the 'fridge for a week or two. I don't worry about the everyday swill $10 Cline Old Vine zinfandel I keep lying around when the wife wants something to drink while she's watching House Hunters International. Draft Day I'll probably stick with some 2013 Napa Cellars "V" (their top of the line) Cabernet I got at a massive post off sale. Nothing like getting an $80 wine for $25 bucks- and it tastes like a $80 cab. If I hear any QBs name that isn't Allen or (unlikely) Jackson at #1, it will be time to break out the Diplomatico or Lagavullin.
  11. Tank Carder Question

    Had to think for a minute, but way back our training camp sensation Ben Gay.....
  12. Twilight Zone (Spring 2018)

    I'll take this sequence- 7, 11, 13.
  13. Bucky Brooks, Walter Football other offenders in that regard. "Dorsey likes big, big armed QBs". Right, just like Tyrod Taylor.
  14. Another mock (CBS Sports) with this brilliant (not) insight. The Browns will draft Josh Allen at #1 because last year Dorsey drafted another cannon arm quarterback in Pat Mahomes....
  15. Pick Six

    Hmmmm....Eli Manning didn't want to go to the Chargers either....
  16. Building the Browns 2018: Episode 2

    Not saying he is- but sure is an improvement over Kizer...
  17. Trade Rumors and Specualtion

    Yeah- BUT. 1) I doubt we'd give up #4 for just #12 and #22. We don't just want to break even, we have to win the trade BIG for it to be worth our while. (QB premium) If both Barkley and Chubb are there at #4, it's going to take a lot to get the Browns to move that pick. 2) The Bills can (probably would, maybe already have- contingent on the qb they want is there at #2) deal directly with the Giants and offer #12, #22, one of their seconds, and their first round pick next year. Way more plausible... 3) Our OL expert (Tour) says this isn't the year to take an OT in the first round.
  18. Trade Rumors and Specualtion

    Must be running out of material to suggest something like that. 1) IF the Bills wanted Darnold equally bad, they can throw a far superior draft package than the Patriots at the Browns- we've already discussed it. 2) Cleveland already has three second round picks, five is a crazy number. (Sashi might have been interested) 3) Bill won't do anything THAT crazy. He can sit where he is and take either Rudolph or Jackson at #23 and give up nothing. Or even Mike White or Lauletta even later. He took Garroppolo in the second round...
  19. Building the Browns 2018: Episode 2

    Well that's the Ghoolie attitude, we've sucked for 20 years no difference now. I think there is a difference. Won't fully buy in until after the draft though. We've upgraded QB, brought in a pro bowl WR, and dumpt malcontents (Britt). Get most of the draft right things will be better for a change.
  20. Call Vegas now and put $1,000 down on your guy if you want to lose money fast...
  21. Trade Rumors and Specualtion

    If you saw the link to Hue's comments on NFL.com- even Hue isn't sure what Dorsey is currently thinking, so how in the hell would Danny and Bucky know? They're guessing based on Dorsey's track history- especially Bucky. Watching today's Mock Draft Live- there was zero talk about the Browns trading out of #1, this three way trade was probably some bright idea of a Bill's fan dreaming up something on how they can get to #1 overall. Short of the Bills pulling a Ditka\Ricky Williams deal offering the Browns their entire draft and a first and third round in 2019, (Casserly revisited it on NFLN as Tuesday was the anniversary of that trade) I don't think Dorsey will be listening..... Not only would the talking heads have to have some inside sources on the Browns, add the Giants and Bills to the list. As of this week the guys who will be making the picks or trades are on total radio silence, and it's all speculation. Some guy who's a ref who knows someone?
  22. Trade Rumors and Specualtion

    Direct quote from Hue, Building the Browns Episode 1- just watched it today. "We have a (draft) process led by you (Dorsey)". Sorry Tom, when it comes to the draft, Dorsey is calling the shots, not Hue. "If there was a consensus (general manager) John (Dorsey) had come to, he would've told me," Jackson said. "That's not the case." Dorsey isn't one to tip his hand. Really sounds like Hue's the one in charge there. Just keep on a trollin' pal- only in your warped mind does Hue have a major say. Spin it however you want- Dorsey and Wolf have the final say. Period.
  23. But despite the (now) overwhelming evidence- in a large part supplied by Jackson himself, a certain troll still thinks Hue is the one calling the draft shots. EDIT: And if that's not enough... https://scout.com/nfl/browns/Article/Hue-Jackson-leaves-little-doubt-as-to-whos-leading-the-Browns-in-the-upcoming-NFL-Draft-117435973?utm_source=Scout Newsletter&utm_medium=Newsletter&utm_campaign=180418_102626_Cleveland Browns&utm_content=Image&liveconnect=CA-1F-A7-07-02-43-35-CA-71-7D-7D-AF-89-03-3E-6C180418_102626ClevelandBrowns
  24. Trade Rumors and Specualtion

    I see where you got that- but the results are still the same... The #12 and both the Bills second round picks don't get it done, not even close...
