    Moss Would Like To Play For Cleveland

    I'm not so sure WR is such a huge position of need. The system last year wasn't what I would call WR friednly and WR's often need a few years to adjust and truly come into their own. We saw flashes of Robiskie looking like a quality NFL WR towards the end of last season. This team needs D Linemen. D linemen and more D linemen. The cupboard is completely bare. I'd draft a D linemen in the first two rounds and hopefully sign a couple. Justin Bannan is one I'd look at in FA. Also Mike Patterson from the Eagles.
  2. You don't know this anymore than I know he did do it..... It's simply a case where there were the facts were not there for the DA to charge him and take him to trial. The bottom line is that this guy is not a quality human being, regardless how he was raised.

    OG Shawn Lauvao

    Same here...I read where he didn't start playing football until his Junior year in High school? They may be thinking that his upside is huge and will want to groom him for awhile. Not sure where guys on this board are thinking Steinbach is an elite Guard. Maybe 4 or 5 years ago this was true. He's 30 and in the twilight of his career now.

    Browns Draft picks today (SATURDAY)

    Hardesty had to be the BPA.....That was not a position of need....At least not compared to the Dline, RT and WR position. Even at safety you still had one of your guys there in Burnett. Unless Heckert thinks Davis is not going to be here and has doubts about Hillis. I love Peyton Hillis and think he could be the perfect back for the weather in Cleveland.

    I Love This New Direction

    A smash mouth D starts with the line and this current line is old or in trouble with the law and not one to get excited about. Coleman, Smith and Rogers have been in the league, 9 years, 10 years and 11 years. Wow! Mosely and Rubin are really going to have to step up. The Browns need to get younger and more talented there. This position was not addressed at all which also surprised me. Let's take anotther RB instead! Hate to rain on your parade...But it's the truth.

    OG Shawn Lauvao

    He might be the RG...I have no idea. I haven't heard. I just know that Mangini didn't seem overly excited about Steinbach and Lauvao is a LG and LT

    Montario Hardesty

    Sure, if Rb was a bigger need than Safety, or ILB or WR or DT/DE. Harrison Hillis and Davis are all young, capable RB's. The Browns starting tackles are over 30 and the starting NG is now in trouble with the law. Fujita, Bowen and Barton are 30 years old and older and The safeties are terribly below average. one of your ILB's is coming off a season in which he was out all year. Yet we take a RB? I think it's almost shocking

    I found his 40....4.53 His vertical really isn't great as far as NFL WR's go....But I still like your thinking. A lot.
  9. Oldcrow1945


    Wow....I love that thinking! I'm pissed I didn't think of it! lol! What was his 40 time?
  10. Oldcrow1945


    Sign Freddie Barnes and bring him in. This would be an obvious pick up for the Browns

    OG Shawn Lauvao

    Has there been anything said about which side he will play on? I figured he was more than likely Steinbach's replacement. I got the feeling last year that Mangini wasn't a fan of Eric....Didn't like his lack of weight.

    memo to cleveland fans

    This is actually the only knock on Ward. Many doubt he has any cover skills. But he's a fearless stick that will be very good against the run.....And I have to believe that is what Mangini was looking for.
  13. Oldcrow1945


    Are teams that worried about Blount being a cancer? This kid can play. He is too talented not to get drafted. There are some other factors going on besides his past mishaps at OU I don't think the Browns need to give him a shot. They already have Peyton Hillis, and I love Hillis.

    Montario Hardesty

    Thanks....I think you are right on!! As I sat there today when Hardesty was chosen my jaw dropped. Really? Another RB? With so many on the board yet?

    #2 pick TJ Ward - Why??

    I love Ward and will say again, had the Browns taking Morgan Burnette instead of Hardesty we could have seen these two play side by side for a long time. Ward is the hitter and while Burnett can hit too, He is more interested in going for the ball. Ward and Burnett could have put a lot of fear into NFL WR's.

    Montario Hardesty

    I hate this pick. A striaght ahead runner who runs too high. This team needs to fill so many holes. RB was not one of them. Especially after picking up Hillis from Denver. Harrison, Davis, Hillis and we draft another RB? Makes no sense to me at all. Morgan Burnett was there, as was Pat Angerer. Two guys that would've helped much more than yet another RB. I love Burnette. A big Safety that can play either Free or Strong.

    What will satisfy you this year?

    9-7. I won't be completely unhappy with 8-8 but I expect 9-7 with that schedule.

    Is someone deleting my posts?

    Wow....That isn't only too emotional, That's embarrassing.

    Next year's RB Class

    It was more than that Aloy. The guy admitted he quit going to class and wasn't working out. That from Blounts own lips. That is much more than a simple "Don't slack off". I think he's a complete stud as well. But I don't think he'd ever be considered by Mangini. I don't see him being the high character and motivated player that Mangini wants.

    Next year's RB Class

    We'll see how he looks against a Georgia defense that returns 7 starters.

    09/10 Browns schedule predictions

    I think their only true bright spot is a healthy Carson Palmer. I'm not even sure he's a big game changer and record changer for them. After Palmer it's one question mark after another. They did a lot of moving people around on the offensive line but I'm unsure how much better they will be with Whitworth (Who had a season ending ankle injury last year) taking the place of Levi Jones. Smith is getting moved to right tackle which means he's playing a position he never has played before. They have a new center and new left guard. One player remains in his position from last year. They lost one of the best WR's in the league and still have a huge question mark at RB. I'm not sold. Not sold enough to think the league's worst offense will get that much better. This could be really good....Or really, really bad.

    Next year's RB Class

    He sure didn't look very big to me so I just now went to the OSU website. There they actually have him listed at 5'8" and 190 lbs. I don't think he's put much weight on at all. I think when OSU plays elite teams outside the conference it gives us a better idea where he is at. As I mentioned earlier, Oregon completely shut him down in the bowl game last year and this year he'll get tested right away as they play Georgia to open the year. That will be a fun game to watch!

    Losing twice to the Bengals and beating the Steelers twice? C'mon!

    Smart football

    Was it Walter C. from walterfootball.com? He has such a hard on for Mangini that it colors everything he writes about him. It's too bad because generally his website is a pretty good one. He has the Browns being the worst team in football and drafting Bradford #1 in 2010.
