  1. Dorsey - What have you done for us lately?

    If Dorsey and the coaching staff choose to go the FA route to fill the void left at SS by the departure of Jabrill Peppers - I like the guy at the top of this list. I certainly would be happy with Eric Berry as well. Neither choice should exclude us from drafting Jabrill's long term replacement. Tre Boston played for Steve Wilks in Arizona last year. Sometimes that could be a help, sometimes it can be a hindrance. There are many moving parts to a potential Boston signing. Have the Browns, with an eye to the future contracts they need to commit to, already exhausted their 2019 free agency budget? Do they feel there is another free agent available that could be a bigger, more immediate help? Or - yikes - is the reason that Tre Boston has not been signed here yet simply due to Steve Wilks is very familiar with him and has chosen not to sign him? All things to consider. https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2826941-ranking-the-top-10-nfl-free-agents-left-on-the-market#slide10
  2. 2019 Off-Season Roster Building: Free Agency & Draft

    With all the FA moves we have made - we are perilously close to living paycheck to paycheck - NFL style - only $35M cap space left........

    C'mon Nude - don't leave me hanging bro. Details?? Or are you being a dog just for the sake of being a dog? LOL
  4. Dorsey - What have you done for us lately?

    I saw a You Tube vid last night saying the Browns had traded Ogbah to the Jets for Darron Lee. Can't find it now, and I haven't seen anything from a "respectable" news outlet confirming it. Plus the entire video was of a blogger expressing his opinion. Me thinks something is rotten in Denmark. Unless anyone else has anything on this - I am throwing the bs flag on it.

    I saw a You Tube clip where new ST coach Mike Priefer likes Greg Joseph.......... Ugh. Maybe he settles down with a full training camp under him. I ain't holding my breath. If Matt Gay of Utah, or Cole Tracy of LSU is there in the 6th or 7th round - I am pulling the trigger.
  6. @Mind Character Nice work on the list, bud. It's evident a lot of thought and passion went into it. So, good on you. I think I agree with most everyone's opinion regarding Christian Wilkins. I would elevate him into the Got to Have category. As a single player, he is a nice player. But as one of four core players in this defensive line, he makes the talent level equal to The Fearsome Foursome of the LA Rams of the 1960's. Dom. I. Nant. The other player I would elevate to the Got to Have category is WR Parris Campbell. I know, I know, I know....... he was late to the party for growth as a WR. But the important part was he did get there. And in 2018, when he was paired with a QB capable of maximizing his skills - his growth skyrocketed. I don't get everyone's fascination that to be successful in the vertical passing game, you can only be a burner that catches passes 25 yards down the field from the line of scrimmage. I see PLENTY of 10 yard drag routes at the NFL level, that are taken to the house simply because the defenders couldn't get the angle or were dusted by the WR's straight line speed. That is Parris' calling card. He is one of those kids that is so fast he can turn out his bedroom light and be in bed before the room gets dark. Just my $.02
  7. What made Hue Jackson such a terrible coach?

    Hue can kiss my backside. That sums up my feelings about the man to a T
  8. 2019 Off-Season Roster Building: Free Agency & Draft

    Minor move here - with the signings of Eric Kush and Kendall Lamm, OG Earl Watford no longer saw his way to the field. He is on his way to Tampa Bay.
  9. K Hunt suspended 8 Games

    Maybe it is just a personal thing, but I like the backs I have suggested just as much or better from a talent standpoint. And I maybe able to get one of them late in the draft than the draft choice I am adding. Plus I don't like Duke's injury history. I would be okay with keeping Duke - I just see this as an opportunity to upgrade the roster.
  10. K Hunt suspended 8 Games

    I am still shopping Duke. Say we get a fourth rounder for him. We are going to be perfectly fine in the slot receiver position without him. At running back - not so much. I use that fourth rounder on one of these three - LJ Scott of Michigan State, Mike Weber of Ohio State, or Devine Ozigbo of Nebraska. They will back up Chubb in Weeks 1-8. When Hunt is eligible in Week 9, you make the decision if you want to keep the drafted player or Dontrell Hilliard.
  11. Browns sign former KC TE Demetrius Harris

    I almost fouled me britches after going to the team website and peeking at the roster....... and not finding Orson Charles. Did I miss something? Was he released and I missed it? Turns out he is not on the roster due to a technicality. He is a RESTRICTED free agent, meaning he currently is unsigned, but the Browns hold the right to match any offers he may receive. He was a key component to the offense last year, so I highly doubt that the Browns will let him walk. Once resigned, he will return to the roster.
  12. 0-16 to 16-0?

    MODS - did not realize there was a schedule prediction thread post trades started. Please move this post there. Thanks in advance. I was going to update my schedule post based on all the roster additions - but I might as well do it here. I think the common 10 win prediction is too low. Serious. As a heart attack. There is no reason at all we shouldn't sweep all 6 divisional games. For the first time in forever, we just have a better roster than any of our AFCN brethren. By far. 6 wins That will leave 5 games at First Energy Stadium. The one thing that all these moves have given the fans is an out of control dose of hope. If you thought they had passion during the 0-16 campaign - wait until you see this year. There is no way on God's green earth that the best fans in the NFL don't unleash seventeen generations of frustrations on those five visiting teams. No way that energy doesn't pump our boys up to where they simply cannot lose. We sweep those games too. 5 wins That leaves the remaining 5 road games against non divisional opponents. At Arizona - Browns rout. At SF - Browns win. At Denver - toss up game. At NE - close loss (refs get involved). At Jets - toss up game. At the very least - that's....... 2 more wins How does 13-3 grab you boys and girls?
  13. Post-OBJ Trade 2nd Round Pick Targets

    Top choice - Simmons Next - Rock Ya Sin Next - Dre'Mont Jones For the record, I am in favor of skipping the summer so we can fast forward straight to September.
