    Looking back on Bill

    ......and then there are those that think the earth is flat....and we never landed on the moon....and the new Ravens were 'clones' of the Browns organization, while the originals were zapped into non existence by gamma rays. - The reality is, the Browns moved to Baltimore, and subsequently were told to paint themselves purple and call themselves something other than the Browns. (ok, I lied. they weren't told to paint themselves purple...they chose to paint themselves purple) - Then we got a stadium, so we could have a team, and so we could select all special teamers in the plan B expansion draft. We came back into the league as dummies and remained that way until a blind squirrel finally found John Dorsey.

    Technicalities mean nothing.

    Looking back on Bill

    They moved away and THEN won a super bowl. The ultimate snub. We hated Bill because he cut Kosar....WHILE Testaverde was injured and thought might be out for the year. He inserted Todd Philcox. We watched Philcox play horribly (as expected) and lose while Bernie played the following sunday for Dallas....and won 2 of 3 games. We had a pretty good team. And it went into the sewer...while Kosar could've kept us afloat until Testaverde came back. - The cutting of Kosar was not in the best interest of the football team at that time.

    Jimmy sez fock u Espn

    Understand that you stated that he technically still works for and is paid by the company. Browns149 is a trucker and obviously takes it quite personally.....as that brotherhood would.

    Flacco is going to Denver

    I heard that earlier today and was thinking, 'The trade deadline passed. And it's not the new league year until mid-March'.

    The official Terry Pluto thread

    Yup, you need to be able to run the ball respectably...but you ABSOLUTELY MUST be able to pass the ball, cos if you can't, your opponent will shut down your run and you'll be dead in the water.

    Browns sign Kareem Hunt

    I don't have to read the link. Hunt is an a-hole. He's a punk. A thug. I friggin' hate him. But he probably would've ended up a Steeler to replace Bell. We have him now. Better here than there. It's a talent driven league. That's why Josh friggin' Gordon wound up on the Patriots. Things get overlooked if you're good at playing football.

    Browns sign Kareem Hunt

    Not a bad thought. You know that SOMEONE was gonna tap him.

    At least we don't have any cheerleaders for him to beat up.
  11. Haslam is a whack-job. But Dorsey is so good that we've got people wanting to come here IN SPITE of the fact that we've got a dope for an owner. And it only works while he stays in the background.
  12. This is VERY positive stuff. NFL people want to come. They see something. - It's one thing for talking heads to say stuff but it's only real when you see it happen. Again, hopefully this trendy Browns thing continues into free agency.
  13. Yes. But we actually had coaches that WANTED to interview for our head coaching position. Obviously Bruce Airiens petitioned for an interview. We got Monken to come here and NOT even call plays. I think coaches are seeing the Browns as a place where they can grab onto it's coat-tails and be seen as part of the REASON the Browns became successful in 2019 (and beyond). That being part of the Browns can be GOOD for their career. A springboard to a possible head coaching position, instead of a catapult into the abyss......which is what we WERE viewed as. And it's all because of Baker Mayfield and John Dorsey (and also because of Landry, Chubb, Njoku, Garrett, Ward and the rest of the young talent. But let's face it, if you take away Dorsey & Mayfield, you're left with Haslam & Tyrod Taylor.)
  14. Right?! That's the theme I'm getting from reading about our new OC, DC, ST coaches/coordinators. They all seem to indicate that they WANTED to come to Cleveland. I mean, one of 'em scheduled Cleveland as his first visit because that's where he wanted to be. - It crazy.....compared to a year or so ago when coaches had Cleveland as a 'last resort'. And the one common denominator in the new coach's comments is that Baker Mayfield is the QB. -- It LOOKS LIKE the Browns can win games now because of our QB. And THAT makes us attractive. We owe the turn-around in the attractiveness of coming to the Browns to John Dorsey. Previous regimes traded away the chance to have a franchise QB leaving the Browns with a crippled offense. They let OTHER teams have the QB's and thus Cleveland is a place to stay away from. Dorsey didn't let ANYONE else control who his QB was gonna be. He DIDN'T take Saquan Barkley and grab a QB that fell to him at #4. NOPE! He understood exactly how valuable that position is. He wanted the BEST one. - Now, of course, he could've been wrong....and still might be wrong about his choice. But so far, the rest of the football world thinks he got it right. We are now a far-cry from the front office that made Shannahan say, "I'm not going to finish my contract here. I'm gonna leave you flat whether you let me out of my contract or not." Coaches now WANT to come here. And I can't wait for free agency to see if PLAYERS now want to be part of our team.
