    the Browns should have stuck with Colt McCoy. It's a shame the new regime wanted "their guy" and rushed Weeden out there. McCoy was the better QB. Hope he gets his chance someday, still following the Redskins because of him. I raged every time Weeden would attempt a short pass, zero touch and just rifled it everywhere.

    The Browns Will Be In The Playoffs This Year

    Browns came close to beating the Steelers the first game of last season, if it wasn't for some spectacularly Brownsy special teams play they should have had that win. With a better team and an OC, hopefully that will give the Browns enough edge to eke out a victory. The same goes for a lot of games last season, they were in it until the 4th quarter/OT and made some stupid mistake that cost them. Remove those mistakes and 4-5 wins seems definitely doable. Offense and defense have improved rosters on paper, and having Joshua Cribbs coaching special teams is very exciting. It's nice to have someone on the coaching staff who is passionate about the Cleveland Browns, hopefully his enthusiasm will spread to these young players.

    POLL: When will Baker start?

    as a fellow Hokie, I hope Tyrod lights it up and brings the Browns to the playoffs. I think the only way we'll see Mayfield is if Taylor gets hurt. I just hope we don't hear "Mayfield" chants after the first interception, it really messed up Hoyer's winning streak the last time the Browns had a first-round QB on the bench and started calling for him at the first sign of trouble. As much as I like Mayfield as a QB, I also want to see what Tyrod Taylor can do with this team and am in no hurry to throw Mayfield out there for trial by fire until he decisively earns the starting role.

    Post draft W/L predictions

    i think they finish 7-9. i don't know what it is with haslam and hue jackson, but if he didn't get fired for going 1-15 followed by 0-16, i think he's here to stay. i'm optimistic that having an offensive coordinator will eliminate some of the bone-headed play calling we've seen in the red zone, and the Browns play well enough to overcome Hue's clock management and stupid challenges. There were multiple times the Browns came close to winning despite Hue Jackson only to Browns it up in the 4th quarter/overtime, hopefully eliminating bubble screens/reversals/fake field goals without a kicker on the field when the Browns are in the red zone turns those close losses into close wins.

    Baker Mayfield Thread

    can you imagine how bad the Browns would have been blasted by the media if they had selected a running back with the #1 overall pick given their desperate need for a QB? The Browns had to use the #1 on a QB, no way around it. For once, they got the top QB in the draft instead of trading down and waiting to see who fell to #22.

    Baker Mayfield Thread

    right, me either. It's like people saw a 6'0 QB, latched on to the Manziel comparison and never let go. Mayfield is older, puts in work studying playbooks, demonstrated his knowledge of X's and O's, has brought his team up to higher levels of competition, did not have a single WR he heaved it to and relied on to bail him out time and time again... i don't think the JFF comparisons are valid. I read about once incident where he evaded arrest. One incident does not make a pattern. As long as he can drag the Browns to some wins, I don't care about one incident in college. I also do not care about the crotch grab. Right from the start, the other team refused to shake his hand and was jeering at him all game. Can't really blame him for that, plus he actually has the gaming ability to back up his Sockiness. It's not like he's grabbing his crotch after every TD pass every game like JFF with his money sign. I'm just not seeing Manziel 2.0. I'm willing to have someone enlighten me if they can provide something concrete, not link me to some article blindly comparing Mayfield to Manziel because someone said it once and now everyone is mindlessly parroting it. Don't let facts get in the way of your opinions. Like it or not, Mayfield is on the Browns and I think Dorsey made the right choice at #1 based on Mayfield's stats, his ability to fire his team up, and his willingness to work hard to get what he wants. Mayfield is the QB the Browns need, someone who isn't afraid of a challenge.

    i don't think browns fans will have long to wait before seeing mayfield with tyrod's injury history.

    Draft Grades

    well, the Browns have "won" the draft the past few years and it didn't pan out, maybe now since they "lost" the draft they will win where it counts. I'm not worried at all about either of these two players. I don't get people saying Mayfield has a big ego, he is nowhere near JFF. I'm pretty excited to see what he can do in the NFL. He was a college QB who was able to elevate the team around him to play up to the level of his opponents (the Ohio State game is the one that most readily comes to mind) and that is exactly what the Browns need. He's also a guy who is willing to put in the hours to study film and learn playbooks, something JFF definitely was not. Of course, he hasn't taken a single snap in the NFL yet so the jury is still out, but I have high hopes. I was hoping the Browns would pick Fitzpatrick at #4 but I can live with it. I can see why they skipped out on Chubb, maybe Ogbah is healing nicely so DE wasn't as glaring a need as secondary help. Denzel Ward was the top ranked CB heading into the draft, and CB is a spot where the Browns desperately need help so I can't really bash this pick at all. Every year after the draft I am optimistic about the Browns' chances, at least their record can't get any worse than last year's....right?

    Shmuck you haslem

    what makes you think this? he worked his way from a walk-on to breaking college football records. I think he'll be fine sitting behind tyrod, it's the fans and haslam who will need to be patient.

    Tank Carder Question

    i've always thought "Colt McCoy" was a great name for a quarterback. Still holding out hope that he gets a shot this year if Smith goes down, if for no other reason than to hear his name on sports radio

    How Can/Will The Browns Blow It? Or Not?

    i really hope all this Allen talk is an elaborate smoke screen to keep people guessing. Why trade Kizer just to draft another inaccurate QB who needs tons of coaching? save the project QBs for later rounds and get Darnold, Rosen or Mayfield with the #1 pick. Anyone other than one of those 3 at #1 and everyone will be talking about how the Browns browned up another draft.

    Jonathan Paul Manziel

    got my hopes up when i saw the thread title, i thought some NFL team signed him. Comeback shoes without a comeback yet? come on JFF, you're not going to endear yourself to anyone that way.
