    A Case For Hue

    Was it Dorsey. We had 2 kickers in competition. I forget the other guys name, but maybe the coach had a lot of input, or maybe even said he wanted gonzo because he had the experience. As for Hue, I don't like him either. As long as we win, I don't care who coaches the team.

    Sorry to hear that. Thanks for the memories Jim.

    Landry returning punts

    Stupid move. I hope we don't do that again.
  5. I think more than that. Ogunjobi looks to be a stud in the making. Calloway has an extra gear and good hands. I think he can be a super player. Avery is flashing.

    Which game is this year's big tailgate?

    I'll try tp stop by for a while. I am staying downtown that game. I assume some people might be down there at 3-4 PM?

    hue jackson

    I don't look at it in terms of how many wins Hue needs. I look at it in terms of losses. If we lose double digit games, Hue better be fired. That is being fair. Personally I don't like Hue at all. He is a insecure little punk who I would have punked some time back.

    Jackson trying to look stupid?

    Hue doesn't have to try to look stupid. It comes naturally.

    Clay Matthews & Doug Dieken H.O.F. worthy?

    Clay is borderline IMO....probably just shy but might get in with the old timer vote. Games played doesn't count for much. Don't get me wrong, I loved the guy and hope he does. He is close....if 100 was the score you needed to get in, he might be at 97-98 Diek....no...he was a solid player, but not one of the best all-time.

    Cory Coleman Traded

    I agree. CJ Board is also having a good camp. It seems pretty clear that Coleman was going to have a hard time making the team.

    How is your excitement

  12. Hue hasn't delivered anything other than 1 blocked kick win in 2 years. Don't give him that much credit.

    Jimmy Garabaho

    If you dated or married a porn star, I would think you would be allowed a few "freebies" a year. Something to be said for that. No?

    RB Position

    I don't know. Most kick-off guys never even get to return kicks. Plus we can go Calloway or Peppers or anybody. I read where Hilliard returned kicks and he is a Dorsey pick-up. If Dayes makes it IMO it is because he makes it as a back. In the end we probably keep 4 backs and Vitale at FB.

    RB Position

    I think we will keep 4 backs. 3 seems thin. Dayes or Hilliard make the team.

    CB Sam Beal worth a 2019 draft pick?

    I wasn't. News to me.

    Would an NHL team work in Cleveland?

    I wouldn't say it won't happen, but the NHL is determined to grown the sport in sunbelt states. There was a reason NHL teams were all northern or Canadian teams 60 years ago, That isn't a issue now. Look at Tampa or Nashville.....it is as hot as hot gets and both sell out. I understand Tampa with the snowbirds, but in Nashville, the Preds are a desired ticket. Houston to me would be a logical target. Big city, have a natural rivalry with Dallas

    The Ten Teams that Best Represent America????

    The teams on the list have some legendary status or are current front runners such as Golden State. They have a lot of fans who don't have any real connection to the team. The Browns have a loyal base, but there aren't many who don't have some connection to the team or city. Connections could be having lived there at one point, or a parent who lived there at one point. Not many Howie's and Garreth's out there who just decided to follow the Browns. As for hockey, he could have probably included the Detroit Red Wings. They have a pretty wide base of fans who don't have any real connection to Detroit.

    Study has Browns as one of the WORST fan bases

    I think more and more people are going to sports bars to watch games rather than watch at home. No way to account for that viewership. The box Neilsen gives out to random households is no longer measuring who is watching football. Those people are at sport bars across this country.

    CB Sam Beal worth a 2019 draft pick?

    My feeling is if the guy is valued as a first round selection, we have to bid a 2nd rounder.

    CB Sam Beal worth a 2019 draft pick?

    The picks are the same as was the regular draft. There is no secret here. The draft itself is more like a auction. If a team likes a player, they make a bid via fax or text to the league office. It's not like everybody is gathered in some room. If we like Beal, we bid a selection. Say we offer a 2nd rounder for him, we get him as long as no other team offers a 1st. If other teams offer a 2nd, we get him because we drafted first in the regular draft.
  22. I have never been one to expect less and you won't feel as bad if you don't reach your goal. I have always had high expectations in everything i do....so that carries over to what i expect of the Browns. I also think this more than innocent until proven guilty. This team is mad and hungry. We should have won 4-5 games last year. We are going to get those and another 4-5 games on top of that. No doubt players are going to have to play. We can't lose a bunch of guys to injury. We can't have the coach making stupid decisions. If we mostly get that, I see no reason why we don't have a legit shot at the division or wildcard slot.
  23. I agree. I go up to Cleveland to watch maybe 6 home games a season and the others at a bar with like minded friends. When watching games, i don't finger around with my phone or geek around on a computer...I save that for when i get home

    Update on Shelton

    No big loss on Danny boy. He is soft. Looks more like a cook at the Waffle House then he does a football player.

    Browns sign Vet ...waive Rod Johnson

    I guess you never know, but Robinson has been a flop with 2 different teams. PFF has him ranked as the worst starting tackle in the league, grading at around 38%. I hope the release of Johnson was performance based and not just because he was drafted by the last group. Seeing how bad Robinson has played in his 4 years, i think i would have rather seen what Johnson could do on the field. But like i said, maybe he came to mini camp 50 lbs over weight and ran 7 second 40's. That is what we don't know.
