  1. Run defense stats

    I know many here didn't think overly highly of him, but I hope that going for more pass rush out of the defensive Nose Tackle position and letting Danny Shelton go doesn't hurt our run game defense game too much.
  2. Run defense stats

    Weren't we also the best team in the league in how many yards we gave up per carry? Yards per game not as good because teams were beating us by so much they would run all the time, but yards per carry is a worthwhile stat....
  3. LB preview

    I don't knwo that he will be the one to be use sparingly. Granted I think on 3rd downs we have all 4 linebackers in, but I think the one who gets far less playing time is JoeSho. Collins is the Sam, Kendricks is a more natural WIll (and I heard the team saying that's where they are putting him) and I could see Kirksey playing the Mike as I have always thought he was best there. I like Joe, I just don't think he is NEARLY as talented as the other 3. I think this could be a position that he takes back one of the linebacker spots to clear salary if we get rid of Collins or don't resign Kendricks, but if everyone's on the team, I think the one who will get the least playing time is Joe.
  4. Supplemental Draft actually relevant??

    (edited) Giants took him 1 pick before us...
  5. Supplemental Draft actually relevant??

    So there is a draft order now. There was a lottery to find out who gets the top picks. Oakland won the #1 pick in each round. #2 - Jets #3 - Giants #4 - Browns
  6. Add 1 Non-QB NFL Player onto the Browns

    Totally agree, which Is why ultimately I have to say Donald. But before Watt started getting hurt there was no more impactful defensive player in this league....
  7. Add 1 Non-QB NFL Player onto the Browns

    I think based on positional need and possible best player in the league I think you have to go Aaron Donald here. That being said, even with injuries, I would take a real hard look at JJ Watt. He is so far and above the best at his position its silly. I take Donald over him just because of Injury history and age...
  8. Cavaliers Thread: Embrace The Tank

    Honestly I'm of the opinion that he just can't win another ring here. I love Lebron, and I would love him to be on the Cavs, but at the same time I want to see him win more rings because he deserves to be in the conversation with Jordan. I don't know that I would love seeing him in LA, but I want to see him with Kawhi. If I'm being honest, I hope Kawhi gets traded to Philly, and lebron goes there to play with Simmons, Fultz, Kawhi and Embid. I don't know if it will work well together but talk about an assembly of talent....
  9. OTA Updates

    Forgive me if I'm mistaken, but didn't we accept Randall's 5th year option, giving him like 9 million dollars next year? I could see him leaving after that in a contract year, but we have at least this year and next year.
  10. I don't think its out of the question at all to be honest. I think people over exadurate how good the talent in the NFL is. First of all, we had WAY more talent than a 0-16 team last year, but we were not helped by a 21 year old rookie QB and an inept offensive coordinator who had NO idea how to use him. I think we will improve on defense because we both have better players, and they are more experianced in the system. We were already the best team at run defense (yards per carry), and we were middle of the pack in yards given up per game (14th best). Half of that was because or defense was on the field so often as we turned the ball over a TON. On the offensive side of the ball, we are replacing that 21 year old rookie, with someone who was able to get the buffalo bills to 9-7 DESPITE being sat halfway through the year for doug peterson who through 5 interceptions in 1 half... But the biggest difference we made all year wasn't Gordon being healthy, It wasn't Hyde and Chubb, It wasn't Jarvis Landry, it wasn't Ndjoku with an extra year under his belt, its Hue Jackson NOT calling the plays...Let him focus on making more errors with challenge flags and clock management. You see this all the time, Teams going from one of the worst teams in the NFL to one of the better records in short order. The chiefs in 2012-2013, last year alone the rams went from 4-12 to 11-5, and the Jaguars went from 3-13 to 10-6. Just the top of my head I am also remembering the colts going 2-14 in 2011 and 11-5 in 2012, the Saints going from 3-13 to 10-6 from 2005-2006, the Chargers were 4-12 in 2003 and 12-4 in 2004. The rams were 4-12 in 1998 and 13-3 in 1999. I understand that Tyrod Taylor is not Andrew Luck, Kurt Warner or Drew Brees (granted the 03 chargers and 04 chargers both started drew) but he is better than Blake Bortles and I would argue that he is VERY similar to what Alex smith was in San Fransisco with less talent around him in Buffalo than smith had in San Fran. I hope we can win 6-8 games, but would i be completely shocked if we won double digets? in the NFL today? not really no... Not only did we have a middle of the range D, but our starting DE's only played 21 of 32 possible games. Our young SS was playing way out of position. We upgraded every secondary position (got 4 new corners, a new free safety, putting the SS back where he belongs), we upgraded our linebacking core (Collins back healthy + Kendricks). That should EASILY upgrade the D to being top 10. On offense, we upgraded the WR position with Gordon full time and Landry, our super young rookie TE will come into his second year, we upgraded the RB position giving guys more rest. We upgraded the QB position by a LOT, which every person would agree is the most important position on the field, which will help both offense and defense... The only positions that took a hit this off season were Nose Tackle and Left Tackle. The talent margin in the NFL isn't so wide to thing that many upgrades wont make a HUGE impact...
  11. The 53 & Roster Strengths, Weaknesses, & Question Marks

    The interesting thing about this draft class run stop percentage is if you look just past Jonathan Allen, Caleb Brantley also seemed very good at stoppping the run. I personally am rooting for Ogunjobi and Brantley on the same line, I was never a big fan of Coley...
  12. FA OLB Kendricks to visit Browns

    Didn't we do that a TON 2 years ago? I thought I remember him playing a LOT of rushing off the edge with Horton and it just not working.
  13. FA OLB Kendricks to visit Browns

    Collins was a good edge rusher in college but he hasn't developed the necessary moves on the edge in the NFL. I watched him try and rush from the edge a TON here but he was just ineffective. I think he plays best when he is in the Sam position, Kirksey is Versitile and I think he could play everywhere. I think Kendricks is more suited for Middle than he is Will. I think we end up with Will - Kirksey, Mike - Kendricks, and Collins - Sam.
  14. Cavaliers Thread: Embrace The Tank

    Yeah the problem with the NBA is you are out of choices. If you take the chance and try and pay someone you have bird-rights with less, you could anger them and they could walk. Because you are already so far over the salary cap you can't find a replacement for them, so really your hands are tied. I didn't necessarily agree with letting go of Mozgov because we had no other options as a true center. I understood not wanting to pay that much for Delly though. NBA salary cap is just dumb....
