    All Time Browns Depth Chart

    Tragically, one of his missed XPs was vs the Raiders in the Red Right 88 game, but the field was frozen. My dad took me to a game vs the Squealers in 1972, the Browns blew a big lead, but Cockroft nailed a game winner at the final gun, Browns 26-24. I'll never forget that game as long as I live.

    All Time Browns Depth Chart

    That's because the nominating committee is nuts. Hanford Dixon didn't have the stats, butthat's because for 2 or 3 seasons, they didn't throw at him often. He was as lockdown as you can get. I think Thom Darden is up there on the list for most career INTs, and he'd knock you down. Both are HOF worthy.

    All Time Browns Depth Chart

    The list is very solid. Webster Slaughter & Felix Wright could use more love. While Thom Darden was no doubt the best safety I saw, I'd put Wright up there as well (ball hawk extraordinaire). Eric Metcalf edges out Greg Pruitt for most electrifying player I ever saw. If Jerry Sherk didn't have health problems, he could have been an all-time NFL great. Maybe Don Rogers as well.
  4. Fire and police are not allowed to strike, for obvious reasons. In regards to your comment, that I highlighted in orange, they do allow us to negotiate but as you may recall, they tried to take that away with SB5 in 2011. We had to do a grassroots effort to repeal it, and we did. That left a bitter taste in my mouth.
  5. I haven't or will not forget. I give Trump credit for trying to reverse it, stymie it.
  6. The thing with me on unions is simply the Collective Bargaining issue. A fundamental part of our economy is negotiating deals. It happens daily in many industries/professions. So all unions really want is a chance to go to a bargaining meeting with their employer. Republicans are against this issue. It doesn't make any sense (to me, anyway). I negotiated 5 contracts during my time as Union President. Just getting to the table, and talking, doesn't guarantee a damn thing (on either side). It does, however,help in understanding why an issue may or may not pass and get implemented into a contract. Without that bargaining right, management is free to dictate whatever they want, however they want. If the Rs ever embrace Collective Bargaining I could vote for a few of them. Until that happens, nope.
  7. I seriously doubt I will vote for Trump, but the Democrats have left me. At least the democratic party that gets all the damn attention. Horrible state of political affairs we live in now.

    Possible changes to NFL schedule

    Well, it's not entirely scientific, but 62% of fans who responded think the schedule should be left alone.... https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2019/07/15/the-fans-seem-to-want-to-stick-with-16-games/

    Possible changes to NFL schedule

    Hmmm....well, yeah both sides want something. The owners pretty much have it all as it is. The players, especially the stars, have it great as well. My point is tinkering with the most successful league in the USA might not be a good idea. Goodell is a puppet for the Jerry Jones/greed monger owner types. Don't fix what's not broken.

    Possible changes to NFL schedule

    The 16 game schedule, and the rotating schedule system in place now is perfect. I sense the owners may want something else from the union. They throw this idea out in the open, before CBA negotiations begin, as a tactic. Probably just going fishing...they know the union is against it, but maybe this stupid 18 game idea will be leverage for concessions on something else. The owners better be careful. I think they've over-saturated the market with these Thursday night games as it is. Just leave the game and schedule alone.

    ROSS PEROT, 89, leukemia

    I voted for Perot the 1st time he ran. He made the most sense, just couldn't beat the big money Ds and Rs like all elections.

    1986 Browns vs. 2019 Browns

    Not to be a prick, but Sam was replaced by Marty in 1984, but I see the comparisons. If we had a pass rush in the mid 80s we would have won a Super Bowl. We have a pass rush now (I think), but no Dixon/Minnifield/Felix Wright at CB/FS. My whole take is the Browns need to survive the first 6 games at say 4-2, stay injury free and takeoff from there.

  17. Nobody has to pay a robot holidays, vacation, or any benefits. Robots don't sass back either, neutral attitudes. I'm not a fan of this at all, but then again, I'm not a businessman.

    Yeah, totally the opposite with her. I'm just pointing out the misery of Charter Schools in Ohio. The White Hat group folded up, which had a huge hand in Ohio (not sure of elsewhere, if there was an elsewhere). I did not realize it was online school stuff at the root of the problem. I don't get the whole "online" school thing anyway; I can't see it being effective in the long run, because sometimes we need group discussion to help our minds out. For a class or two, I bet it's fine. For an entire curriculum, I'm not so sure. I have quite a few friends of mine who got online Fire Science degrees, mainly for resume building for possible promotions. IMHO, nothing beats hands-on experience, no matter what the field you work in or study. I want to be a punt returner for the University of Phoenix online! WSS- while I understand your disdain for the teachers union, just remember our wonderful state hasn't moved on the school funding issue (Ohio Supreme Court said it was unconstitutional years ago). So these operating levies depend on voters to pass or fail, and the teachers' raises/benefits depend on them. It's the only tax a voter has a say-so on to my knowledge that effects so many people. Eventually, it needs to be fixed but no politician seems willing to stick their neck out on it.

    WSS I think its simply a bad idea to appoint a for-profit person to a post that is in charge of public schools. Bad look for sure. I cannot pinpoint anything specifically that she's done "wrong." I simply used her as an example of cronyism. Ohio is an example of Charter School failure, let's hope that Betsy doesn't turn a blind eye.

    Breaking News Chemist....all of DC is special-interest cronies. Ever hear of Betsy DeVos?

    I got tired of Obama disrespecting the police force and not acknowledging some terrorist acts. And saying he would stay out of the Mosque request at NYC Ground Zero. I'm sure there's more as well.
  22. Bob806


    Just my opinion- the so-called "hate" has nothing to do with the economy. It has to do with arrogance and insults. I'm tired of it. Guys who acted like this when I was in junior high and high school got their asses kicked. He's lucky the Ds are imploding. He's lucky his supporters remain loyal, which I cannot understand....this guy is Teflon.
  23. What if Marty had left Dave Puzzoli on the field at 3rd & 19 vs Horse Teeth?

    Regular Season Schedule

    I think Thursday Night football should avoid division rivalry games, but what do I know.
