  1. With 10 Games left, how many games do we win this season??

    It is actually very hard for a team to not win at least 3 games in any season, but I believe we will be extremely lucky to win 1. Even though, every team we play will have a win already marked down in their minds, that overconfidence usually means, they will have very little emotion for the game, when they play us. This overconfidence sets up teams for a possible loss, because it is very difficult to beat a team when you has zero emotional commitment , while the Brown's players will be treating each game like it is the SB, trying to avoid an 0-16 season at all costs. Remember, if the team goes 1-31 over 2 seasons, everybody will call it the worse team in NFL history and no player wants to be remembered for playing on it. They will be putting out everything they have to win at least 1 game. So, we could actually win 2, but anything more is just a pipe dream!!!
  2. At this point Kizer completion rate are right there with every QB who ever flopped and in some cases even worse. Only Eli and Smith, 2 guys who went #1 overall, survived such a low completion rate and went on to be solid franchise QB's. No second round QB has ever survived this kind of start as a QB in the NFL. Even Gabbert had a better rookie season than Kizer and he won 4 games.
  3. Kizer Calls a Players Mtg; But will we see progress...

    Not completely true, your rookie season does not matter all that much if you are a top 12 pick, you were drafted because the team's scouts and GM saw talent in you and have confidence you will get better with experience and most do. The GM who drafted that top 12 QB, probably has his job riding on that QB's success and will force his HC to start him for at least 3 seasons to see if he can significantly improve. Of course, there are failures there as well, just a lower % than if you are drafted after the top 12. If you were drafted below round 1, your chances stood at about 6% before you ever took the field and if you are historically bad, most likely the FO drafts someone higher the next draft and you are put aside as a possible starter. This is the likely scenario for Kizer especially if Peyton is hired and runs the draft. Obviously, if the owner is now hiring Manning to run the football side of our organization, he has no confidence in those who were drafting before and I seriously doubt, if he wants to go into next season, with Kizer as his QB. He has to know that if we go into next season with Kizer as our QB and we again go 1-15 or 0-16, that he will not come close to being able to sell out the stadium and he will face the loss of millions of $$$'s. There is only so much a loyal fan base can bare, before they begin to give up on buying tickets.

    Well, those on NFL.com like him and I will go by their opinion over someone who thinks Kizer can be a stud. You are a strong supporter of Kizer and I am not, so we will just have to disagree on Allen as well.
  5. Wow, Khahlil Mack, an All Pro put him on his back once, that's a sure sign of not being worth keeping??? Also, didn't KC almost win that game and last I looked had won a heck of a lot more games than we have???
  6. You reference that the Texans, Jags, Broncos (who actually won a Super Bowl, and did so with a bad Peyton Manning as QB) have won a Super Bowl because of x,y and z. However, The Colts with Luck haven't won one either. The Chargers with Rivers haven't won one.
  7. I really respect your ideas, but it is very rare that a true franchise QB has ever been ruined by having a weak team around him. As for Wentz, he was clearly the #2 or for some teams, the #1 prospect in the draft and the question marks were really only about level of play in college. He had everything else you look for in a franchise QB. To try and rebuild a team without a franchise QB in place is actually quite difficult, once the franchise QB is in place, drafting is simple, you build an offense around the needs of that QB, usually drafting a solid LT and WR's to protect him and give him weapons, followed by a solid RB and suddenly, you are a powerful offense. then you go after your defense. Always fix one side of the ball at a time, don't try to fix everything in one draft and do not be afraid o draft more than one guy for each position. More #'s = a greater chance for success. Without a franchise QB in place, teams are usually confused in drafting, because it is difficult to know exactly what you should be doing. If Sachi's plan was based on the solid crop of potential franchise QB's in the 2018 draft and that is why he drafted a lot of defense in the 2017 draft, then just maybe, he is smarter than I realized and had a plan that might have worked if Haslam hasn't taken him out of the planning and drafting loop with Peyton??? The only criticism then would be the quality of players he has drafted, because he is not a football guy and may had completely relied on his HC and scouts, not a wise thing to do based on past experiences. Your GM has to be an excellent talent appraiser for a franchise to succeed, being an excellent planner is just not good enough.

    Honestly, I love Mayfield, and he will be a starting QB in the NFL, but 4 guys are rated above him for 2 reasons, height and strength of arm. There are at least 4 guys, Rosen, Darnold, Allen and Jackson who have stronger arms and are all taller, but when it comes to intangibles and leadership qualities, Mayfield IMO, is #1.
  9. College QB Watchlist

    It is a very rare year for potential 1st round QB's with the potential for 4 or5 true franchise QB's The consensus top 5 QB's for the 2018 draft are: 1) Sam Darnold - His game really picks up when the team is in trouble, has a solid pro arm and can really move around in the pocket. Checks out well for his leadership qualities and his intangibles are very solid. Rated as a sure fire franchise QB. 2) Josh Rosen - One of the best deliveries seen in a long time, beautiful form when throwing a football and a strong arm. He appears to have matured this season, not that unusual for a young kid His Combine interview will be especially important to him. He will battle Darnold for the #1 spot all season and is also rated as a sure fire franchise QB. 3) Josh Allen - his stats are very misleading this season, as the talent around him basically sucks. His WR's are all new and cannot get any separation and drop a lot of balls. His leadership qualities and intangibles are off the charts. His has an A+ arm and great mobility for as 6'5", 235lbder. His upside is as high as scouts have seen in a prospect, but some teams will not like that his stats which are rather mediocre this season and he does not face a lot of tough competition this season. However, the consensus says, with far better pro coaching and playing with far more talented players, his guy could be really special and turn out to be the best of the crop given a little time,. 4) Lamar Jackson - Strong arm and can make all the throws. This year, he is working with a totally different set of skill players which has limited his production. However, his intangibles are very solid and we all know, he is extremely athletic and mobile in the pocket. Will need to be drafted by a team willing to adjust their playbook to suit his skill set. He reminds you of Vick, but he is a much better passer. Not much experience as a pocket passer and tends to take off a bit too much, which sent him to #4. 5) Baker Mayfield - Has shown a stronger arm than people thought he possessed, is mobile and very accurate . A little short for some GM's and scouts liking, but his intangibles are off the charts, a tremendous leader of men, has absolutely no fear of anything, great pocket presence. He will be a NFL starting QB. His arm and shortness drop him to #5. Other QB's still in the Mix as 1st rounders: 1) Jarrett Stidham, Auburn 2) Mason Rudolph, Oklahoma St. HC has not had a lot of success producing pro QB's and his system tends to hide their weaknesses. Later Round Prospects at the QB position: 1) Jake Browning, Wash 2) Luke Falk, Washington St. - Another HC whose QB's always produce immense stats, but none have ever amounted to much as a pro. 3) Austin Allen, Arkansas 4) Quinton Flowers, South Florida 5) Logan Woodside, Toledo 6) Riley Ferguson, Memphis St. Edited 9 hours ago by Iamcanadian

RB list is decent, but I would probably have Scarbrough up around where you have Harris and I am keeping an eye on James Williams of Washington St., Royce Freeman of Oregon, even DSony Michel, Georgia, Terence Williams, Baylor, Ralph Webb, Vanderbilt and Justin Jackson, Northwestern.amien Williams of Alabama, WR list is good, but Calloway has to be dropped considerably because of character issues and Clemson has shown that they put excellent athletes at WR, see: Watkins and Hopkins, so I would have Cain a lot higher than you have him and I think Andrews of Oklahoma is more of a WR prospect. OT list: is decent but I have McGlinchey, Braden Smith and Martinas Rankin right after Hyatt,I also like Trey Adams, Washington, Tyrell Crosby, Oregon, Geron Christian Louisville, Zachary Crabtree, Oklahoma St. Chukwuma Okorafor Western Michigan and Broke Ruble of Florida St. OG list: Where is Martez Ivey of Florida and I have Pierschbacker a lot higher as well as Crowder. I also like Benzschawel of Wisconsin, OConnell of Washington St. and Teuhema of LSU. OC list: I have Dieter of Wisconsin right behind Cole and I like Shelton of Washington and Eberle of Florida St. as well On defense, I will only mention Dewin James who will battle Fitzpatrick for the #1 spot.
  12. 2018 Draft Eligible QB Thread

    Hey, I am opinionated as hell and often get taken to task for my ideas. You are going to get that on any site. You are good at what you do and add a lot to this forum, so just get a thicker skin and ignore the idiots who make fun of you. They probably know nothing about being a true draftnik and are just looking to get a rise out of you. Just completely ignore them, that's what I do with idiots and if they personally insult me, I came come back a lot stronger than they can, if I choose to answer their call for war. You are too good a poster to give it up, you'll find insults on any site and just hope the moderator suspends those who get out of line. As for nobody cared, I never saw the post and would likely just pass over idiot posts without reading them, that does not mean I do not support you. Again, just ignore them !!!

  14. One way to address the declining TV ratings

    The NFL needs to get off the Fox Network, I will not watch a game on Fox who warps their news to favour Trump.
  15. I love your last line and sad, but it is very likely, completely true. As for the Wentz trade, I would put it another way, they were totally incompetent drafters who couldn't recognize talent if it fell into their hands and that has to worry me, because having a lot of picks soon becomes meaningless, if you don't have the ability to spot real talent. It always has amazed me, how many flops happen to the bottom feeders, who have GM's incapable of assessing talent, they account for a large # of flops every year. I believe the average # of starters in the NFL, from any draft, is around 3, let's see how many starters we get from all the picks we have??? Even more important, let's see how many game changers we get??? As for Hue, he is in an impossible situation, most HC's need a certain degree of talent especially at QB to succeed in the NFL and I am not seeing it on the Browns??? But they have to fire somebody as a scapegoat and Hue will likely be the choice although Haslan has a quick trigger finger, so the FO may go as well. After all, he cannot fire the man really responsible for this mess, namely, himself???
