    Anyone have a thought on CeeDee Lamb.. Looks to be the 3rd best receiver in the draft this year. Watched him connecting perfectly with Mayfield in a lot of games last year. Good downfield blocker. Looks like a tough kid... 3 WR threats??? Could be a good combination.
  2. Baker Mayfield Thread

    I don't get the Johnny Football comparisons at all. I've watched his film and he is a smart QB. Obviously he needs work, just like any College QB needs to make it in the NFL and that is where the comparisons end. I knew nothing about JFF before we drafted him other than he won the Heisman and the You tubes I watched of him. I had no idea of the lack of work ethic this kid had. I was high on Johnny back then because I thought he loved the game. Turns out he loved the lime light a whole lot more and that football was a means to an end. What I see in Mayfield is a passionate person, who works hard to get what he wants. Everyone says that his work ethic is impeccable. he will stay late and watch film and do the hard work that needs to be done. One note of concern and one that was raised above. He was arrested for showing VERY bad judgement.. And because he is a white "smart" quarterback, it is pushed under the rug. I only read about that 2 days ago and was very surprised... As noted above, if he were black, he would have a scarlet letter on him and wouldn't have been touched until the 6th round... I hope I am right about this kid.. We really need a solution at QB and if this kid is smart he will understand he has a golden opportunity to learn under a good veteran NFL QB. If he is smart and works hard, he has the potential to be loved and adored by millions of Browns fans the world over.. I think allot of these kids coming into the league do no understand that Browns fans will canonize any QB that can get us to the playoffs a few times. I means they don't even have to win a Superbowl or even get to one and we will be celebrating them for decades to come(Bernie??)..
  3. Will we trade back in round one for another pick...?

    you suck Was literally logging on to start the same damn thread. Was willing to bet that we give up both of our 2nd round picks at the top to get back in and nab a Running Back.. Great minds

    Great interview with The Call... I really liked his responses and he didn't get baited into saying stupid things.. Look like he was confident without being a finger. Just 1 interview.. http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-videos/0ap3000000913467/Baker-Mayfield-full-interview-on-Super-Bowl-Prime

    Not sure if this makes sense as a reply. But the QB for sure can lead to a really shitty defense. The Browns offense for years is a perfect example... If a QB and the offense are constantly going 3 and out, and the defense never gets any rest, this is of course going to lead to a shitty defense on a lot of levels. We get the ball first and our O goes 3 and out. Defense steps up and does a good job and maybe they get them out on the 2nd set of downs.. We are up on O and then 3 and out. Again our D steps up and stops them before they get into FG range... Our O is pinned back and goes 3 and out. Punt leaves our D already on our side of the field.. They bend don't break and give up a FG.. By the 4th quarter the D is exhausted and we are down by 21. They are forced to blitz blitz ... And then we get smoked with big downfield throws and suddenly we lost 35 to 3 or if we are lucky 35 to 10 in junk time... A bad QB/Offense is the chicken before the egg.
  6. Tyrod Taylor A Brown

    Had to go back 3 pages to revive this thread.. We need to wrap our head around the fact that this guy has the reigns of our team for the next year.. And here is a stat I like.. 2017 TD's 14 versus 4 Picks 2016 TD's 17 Versus 6 picks 2015 TD's 20 Versus 6 picks Compare this to the pathetic ELEVEN and TWENTY TWO!!!!! Of Dishone Kizer.. Imagine having even half of those picks back in critical parts of those games? I don't know that he is THE MAN. But if he cannot end up like RG3 last year and try and run down a freaking 250 pound linebacker and get knocked out at the start of the season, i think he is poised to do MUCH better.
  7. Baker Mayfield Thread

    Might already be out there, but I haven't seen a thread for this guy yet.. I am not a college ball guy, but I have watched a lot of you tubes on the 3 or 4 major prospects and have seen little attention given to Baker Mayfield. I watched the fan boy vids of each of the 4 top guys and of course they look great. But then you watch every throw they make against a good team like Ohio State and then they look a lot different. I watched Darnold in that game and I was less than impressed. Saw him throwing into double even triple coverage. Sure there were a LOT of dropped passes, but he made a lot of iffy decisions in that game. On the other hand Baker Mayfield has a similar look about him, but definitely smaller(at 6'1"). He has a good arm and throw darts. But I really like his decision making in that game. Threw into double coverage , but ball was placed where only the receiver could get it. He seemed to be checking down 3 and even 4 deep before scrambling. Scrambles great especially on the weak side. I really liked Mayfield in the very limited film I've seen of him. Not sure if there are other things that are negatives, like off field cowpoop.. But I would love to see this play out. Take Saquon Barkley at 1 and I think it is likely that Mayfield is available at 4... Thoughts?
  8. ***Official Browns Vs. Steelers Game Day Thread***

    Common, this is opening day. It's a new season and all thing are possible at least for the next 3 to 3 1/2 hours.. SO ENJOY IT. Screw being realistic or trying to guess the score. Enjoy the possibility that this is the year we finally do something to get us die hard fans excited. For me, I just hung my Browns banner on the front porch. It is tattered and hasn't hung for nearly 2 seasons.. Going to a local bar with some friends. Good beer maybe some chicken chunks.. And from now till then I am eternally optimistic and almost nervous.. Cannot wait !! Plenty of time for being realistic in 5 or 6 hours...

    Don't know if Cleveland players every check these boards. But I for one want to wish Joe GOOD LUCK.. You've been one of the few bright spots in an otherwise black hole of despair as a Long time Browns fan.. Thank you for your commitment to our team and always keeping it classy!
  10. Watched both pre-season games and noticed something very very odd..... The screen pass is actually working... Do you know how long as a Browns fan I have waited for this to happen(even if it is just pre-season)? It has been a running joke for the better part of a decade about any coach calling a screen play in Cleveland.. Kizer seems to be able to sell it better or something.. But they are actually executing, along with some good first contact moves by our RB's. .Instead of -1 or +2, we seem to be getting first downs or setting up 3rd and shorts.. Again; just preseason, but hopefully this holds against 1st team play going into the season.. That is a play that is crucial to taking the pressure off our inexperienced QB's.. Let the aggressive Shitsburg defenses come running at us and effectively dump the ball over the rush.... One can hope BobPound!
  11. I am open to being wrong.. But for better or worse he executes faster.. That screen was completely sold on his fast movements.. He really sold it... Even when he was sacked those two times, you could watch his head.. He was checking down... He just needs the clock in his head to say "bail out" when the count reaches 3.... Other than that, I think he is making good decisions so far.
  12. First of hopefully many TD for Kizer on his feet..... Personally a stupid risk I think... But we are on the board.
  13. Nice mix of pass/run.. Finally getting them guessing.. I cannot understand how you can't see that Kizer's mechanics are light years ahead of Brocks.. He throws with confidence, has an NFL wind up. Is quick to make decisions... He doesn't know the play book and looks like a deer in the headlights when things slow down.. But he seems to do well when things are moving quickly... We need to speed this Offence up I believe.. Maybe even go to a 2 minute drill early on and see what he can do.
  14. NICE.. Short field,,, let's see what they can do with this...
  15. Defense looks pretty good so far.. I like the aggressiveness though they got burned on the double CB blitz.
