  1. Just like we had never heard of a fifth round pick being used on a long snapper either.
  2. So the NBA is back.............. They can officially kiss my posterior, and I won't be back as a fan. E.V.E.R. For the deep thinkers of the league to restart the season, but to tell some teams - "You suck, so we don't want you" is a major slap in the face. They can't see that is a two way street. Piss on 'em.
  3. BIEBER!!!!!!! But let's not lose sight of ANOTHER very important development....... James Karinchak 1.0 IP 0 R 0 H 6 Pitches 6 Strikes Can you hear me now, Tito? And it's not like this post is a kneejerk reaction to one bad outing on Wednesday night. Since the All Star Break last year, Hand's pitching has been on a downward track.
  4. If I am Plesac, I am telling Hand to meet at the flagpole after school...........
  5. Hand is toast - give me Karinchack (sp) as the closer before Brad pisses away the season.
  6. I completely disagree with the Devonta Smith pick to the Browns. WR may be the deepest unit on the Browns. I don't buy the argument that the Browns may move on from OBJ and Jarvis next year..... WHY?? Move on from the biggest talent they have had at WR in at least a generation? Maybe the problem last year was an offensive scheme designed by a coach that had ZERO clue how to maximize the talent in front of him. Move on from the most productive WR the first 5-6 years in his career in NFL history? And the BEST locker room presence that we have had in forever? The offensiv
  7. Respect and condolences to his biological and Bengal families from the other side of the state.
  8. But, on a much lighter note - I remember being in the Sea Scouts in London. We took a field trip one summer weekend to the RAF airfields just off the coast. I still remember our guide beaming with national pride telling us the key reason that the British and the RAF were able to defeat the Germans and the Luftwaffe was the British had developed radar. They successfully tricked Goering into thinking the RAF was 10x the size it actually was because whenever the Nazis flew in for an attack the British fighters were there to engage them.
  9. It's still close to me as well Ron. Those that we met in England who experienced the war as adults were then the elderly, and yet the pain still ran deep. The young soldiers who actually fought in the war are now the elderly, and they have lived with those memories for 70 plus years. I don't care how it affects you, it does to your core.
  10. I challenge anyone who wants to romanticize about the greatness of war............... To visit that cemetery, or Gettysburg at dusk, or the Vietnam Memorial in Washington......... And really take the time to soak in that moment in time. No way you walk away unchanged.
  11. If I am one of the other 31 owners or GMs in the league, I am thinking long and hard before I ever hire that lying, scheming egomaniac that is Hue Jackson. I hope they are watching how he is trashing his former team........ "If y'all would have listened to me and done it my way, it would have been better....." must be Hue's thinking. Memo to Hue - you had THIRTY EIGHT freaking games to "make it better". Exactly when was this success supposed to start? Firing Hue was the beginning of the success. Let that sink in you arrogant tool.
  12. I hope this more impactful as this is a recount of my own personal life experiences that led to my D-Day remembrance. Here goes. I am now 62 years old. As a lad of 10 in the winter of 1967-68, I came to the supper table one night to hear my dad tell me and my 5 brothers "Boys, your mother and I have something to tell you. Later this spring, we are moving to Europe". After we all dropped our spoons in our soup bowls, we collectively said "Whaaat?" Dad went on to explain the plan was Firestone was moving the family to London for a 2 year assignment, then move to Rome for a year's assignmen
  13. Sad news. A stalwart on the opposition to rhe Cavailer teams of my youth, Washington Bullets C Wes Unseld passed away at 74 today.
  14. I know DePodesta is a key player in this front office, but where is he on the proverbial flow chart? I would guess even with Berry or his boss.
  15. One of the greatest scenes in one of the greatest sports movies of all time............... And BTC - spot on about NOT lowering ourselves to Pittsburgh's level and wanting to get into a slug fest with cheap shots. That's their game - and they will pay the reaper at some point for it. Simply put, there is no need for it on our end. We have superior talent at the skill positions to their defensive stoppers. All we need to insure is that our revamped OL can afford Baker the time. And Myles is so much better than the the last time Ben faced him. And if Jadaveon decides to join us - then
  16. Signed his rookie deal today. https://www.cleveland.com/browns/2020/05/browns-sign-5th-round-center-nick-harris-to-his-4-year-rookie-contract-worth-about-36-million.html
  17. After suffering through a hideous 5 year stretch of uniforms in Cleveland.............. I will let the Judge rule on this matter..........
  18. Wanna "finish" the offensive line???? OG Larry Warford, a 28 year old THREE time Pro Bowler - just got released by the Saints in a cost cutting move. And just for ****s and giggles - he happens to be a right guard. You're up, AB. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.co...larry-warford/
  19. Yup - we watched the same games. That's certainly a recipe of how to torpedo a season
  20. Instead of starting a thread for each former Brown, I figured I would crate a parking spot for news of team to team or out of the league movement of all former Browns.
  21. NFL coaching icon Don Shula has passed away. He had played for the Browns in the embryonic years of the franchise. He leaves a legacy with his involvement with John Carrol University, and successful steak houses.
  22. Dalton coming home - signs with the Cowboys.
  23. Bullseye! Clowney had off season core muscle surgery. He is still asking arrogantly for $17-20M per year. That is enough money to get a GM fired if it doesn't work out - so my guess is until the Browns medical staff can look at him and test him for themselves. they will not okay a contract of that magnitude.
