  1. 2019 Off-Season Roster Building: Free Agency & Draft

    Would Baker complete any passes to Demetrius Harrison? Jalen Strong? Duke Johnson? or any other recievers? Because as it is you have him at 5200 yards which is good for 5th all time behind the following Brees 2011 - 5476 Brady 2011 - 5235 Manning 2013 - 5477 Brees 2016 - 5208 If he has as little as 36 recieving yards to anyone else that puts him at 3 all time...

    Lol okay. My bad. 3rd round it is ;-)
  3. 2019 Draft Prospects

    I'm not saying we couldn't use him, I'm just saying there are more valuable positions on the field worthy of a 3rd round pick than a 5th WR and special teamer. I could see using a later pick on something like that, but that doesn't seem like great value and we need great value.
  4. 2019 Draft Prospects

    Personally I don't know that I would take a WR that high. We really need to start taking good depth players at positions we might lose our top talent, I just don't see WR being one of those positions. In the 5th or 6th round? sure but the 2nd and 3rd will be starter to quality depth to possible replacement for us, or should be...

    Exactly, and with the trades and signings we've made this year we've kept to the same plan. Vernon, Beckham, Richardson, if we need the money we can cut all of them with little to no repercussions...ya know...aside from fan backlash if we cut Beckham :-P
  6. Dorsey - What have you done for us lately?

    I still have my hopes up that we get another Chief who could play our SS
  7. 2019 Off-Season Roster Building: Free Agency & Draft

    Honestly its all about the money and when we need it or when we have a replacement for him. If Vernon takes this team to another level, I see him sticking around for 2 years but unlikely to be re-signed. We don't NEED the money until Garrett or Baker need to be re-signed, but we are going to eventually need it, so its good to have that flexibility.
  8. What made Hue Jackson such a terrible coach?

    To me what made him a bad coach was a quote he gave when talking about how much he liked the John Dorsey signing. "Its not about picking the best players available for the Cleveland Browns. Its about picking the best players that fit the coaches talents" I don't know if he adjusted his offense before with Cincinnati, or Oakland, I didn't watch enough of their games, but I know in Cleveland he CONSTANTLY tried to fit square pegs into round holes. Example, the front office drafted Kizer, told hue he needed at least a year to learn because he was so raw, and not only did Hue play him, but he tried to run complicated deep routes that took forever to develop and expected Kizer to be able to read the defensive line and move in the pocket like a seasoned veteran. He didn't want to continue with Kessler because he wanted to play with a QB who could throw deep, but he never had the time or players to run that system. He could be a good coach in the right sysem, with "players that fit his talents", but a good head coach in the NFL should be able to fit the system to the player, not the other way around.

    He is correct. If you look at Over The Cap, our cap liabilities are about 218.4 Million. 18.8 million of that is Dead Money. That puts our 2019 salary at about 199.6 Million dollars. The 2019 Salary Cap is 188.2 Million. We are about 11.4 million dollars over the salary cap. Its not a bad thing though. We are using carry over money, which we have plenty of to cover the rest, and thats fine, it does not give us cap issues this year, but it is something we need to pay attention to in the future.

    I honestly don't think this is the reason we pulled the trigger. I think we have a small window and we are just trying to acquire as much talent as possible. I think there is just as much a chance we trade him before his contract is up. But I do see him as more of a Kamara to Chubbs Ingram than anything. Chubb seems like hes the better runner but not as skill a pass catcher, route runner, or blocker. Hunt seems like he would do those things for us and get the receptions out of the backfield. All I know is I'm happy to have them both on the same team!
  11. Honestly I LOVED sashi but what Dorsey is doing is incredible. That being said, I think its unfair to say this is because of one man or the other. Sometimes its about the trades that aren't made, not the trades that are, that make the biggest difference. Remember we could have had AJ McCarron for a 2nd and a 3rd if Sashi didn't die for our sins... Also he had the savvy to trade a 7th round pick for a punter, and trade that same punter for a 4th. He had the savvy to trade 16 million dollars for the ability to draft Nick Chubb and not have it hurt our salary cap situation. It is amazing what Dorsey has done, but the ability to do it is because in the years leading up to this we were put in a great situation. All the credit to Dorsey on what he has done, I have LOVED it, but we don't know what sashi would have done, all we know is he did great things while he was here too...
  12. Browns sign OT Kendall Lamm

    Put him on my diet. I promise I can help anyone gain 10-20 pounds :-P
  13. Browns sign OT Kendall Lamm

    Also the nice thing about Chris Hubbard is he can play guard also, so even though we have 4 tackles, they are flexible in how they can be used.
  14. Browns sign OT Kendall Lamm

    I think the front office knows better than to look at it that way if I'm being honest. Harrison did not play great, but he went from West Georgia to starting left tackle in the NFL against a fairly complex scheme in the Pittsburgh Steelers with 0 pre-season games under his belt. We played Joel Bitonio at LT for every pre-season game and then moved everything around when we started week 1. Of course he was going to struggle. Also Hue and Hailey did nothing to help him. Didn't chip with TE's, didn't get the ball out quickly. We set him up for failure, and honestly, he didn't look THAT bad. He needs some time to prepare but I would not go as far as to say he was bad. And I undestand pretty light but what was Joe Thomas playing weight? If you are sound in technique you don't need to be 360 lbs. And of course he is a developmental prospect, he has been in the NFL for 1 year, he came out of West Georgia. He needs time to develop. I don't care how old he is...
