  1. cut jaelen strong

    Haha, hell yeah, we can't have Myles having a stroke from being confronted by such stupidity.
  2. Post-OBJ Trade 2nd Round Pick Targets

    The guys I am realistically targeting for the 2nd and 3rd rounds are as follows (in no particular order): 1. Jeffrey Simmons, DT Miss. St. 2. Garrett Bradbury, C N.C. St. 3. Jonathan Abram, SS Miss. St. 4. Rock Ya-Sin, CB Temple 5. Nasir Adderly, S Delaware 6. Jerry Tillery, DT Notre Dame 7. Dalton Risner, OT Kansas St. 8. Taylor Rapp, S Washington 9. Andy Isabella, WR UMass 10. Julian Love, CB Notre Dame 11. Amani Hooker, S Iowa 12. Amani Oruwariye, CB Penn St. 13. Darnell Savage, S Maryland 14. Ben Banogu, DE/OLB TCU 15. Juan Thornhill, S Virginia 16. David Long, CB Michigan 17. Parris Campbell, WR Ohio St. 18. A.J. Brown, WR Ole Miss 19. Erik McCoy, C Texas A&M 20. Greg Little, OT Ole Miss 21. Devin Bush, LB Michigan (probably gone in 1st) 22. Cody Ford, OT/OG Oklahoma (probably gone in 1st) 23. Noah Fant, TE Iowa (probably gone in the 1st) 24. Dexter Lawrence, DT Clemson 25. Elgton Jenkins, C Miss. St. This we'll have to be a draft we just let come to us and take the best player on the board.
  3. Browns to sign DT Sheldon Richardson

    Suddenly we have some really quality depth along the front four and a scary starting four. Myles G., Larry O., Richardson, and Vernon starting with Ogbah, Avery, Price, Coley, Thomas, and likely draft picks as depth and rotational guys? We are looking pretty solid. I like this move. Being perfectly honest, I think Myles and Larry will be a positive influence on Richardson as well, and he will thrive in a three technique role (where he likes to play). He will retain his aggression, but the fun that Myles and Larry display when they play, I think will be infectious to Richardson and Vernon as well.
  4. Browns trade Kevin Zeitler for Olivier Vernon

    Yeah, Vernon is pretty solid, but NYG was largely playing him out of position once they switched defensive schemes. I imagine that we envision him as our starting LDE across from Garrett. Look for us to move Ogbah in a trade.

    Yeah, it's silly season, but it is fun to banter about the "what ifs" at this time of the year.

    If we could land OBJ for #17, #80, and next year's 2nd round pick, I am making that trade. OBJ is a remarkable talent and the diva issues aren't that big of an issue considering that is a pretty consistent dynamic to manage from the WR position. He provides us an extremely young and talented WR position group that can develop with Baker at QB. As contracts play out and players develop we can make moves accordingly to manage the monetary issues. Additionally, I don't see the sacrifice in draft capital to be overly concerning given Dorsey's success throughout past drafts. Dorsey has demonstrated an ability to find talent in less than premium rounds, which helps our ability to make a move like this. This is the type of pickup that could put us in control of the AFC North for years to come. I would love a draft/off season like: Resign some of our key free agents to budget friendly extended deals, which it seems like we are already in the process of doing, followed by: 1.) Odell Beckham, Jr., WR NYG (via trade of #17, #80, and 2020 2nd round pick to NYG) 2.) Jerry Tillery, DT Notre Dame or Jeffrey Simmons, DT Mississippi St. 3.) Trayvon Mullen , CB Clemson or Rock Ya-Sin, CB Temple 4.) Andy Isabella, WR UMASS or Terry McLaurin, WR Ohio State 5a.)Yodney Cajuste, OT West Virginia, Isaiah Prince, OT Ohio State, or Chuma Edoga, OT USC 5b.) Khalen Saunders, DT Western Illinois, 5c.) Carl Granderson, DE/OLB Wyoming 6.) Kaleb McGary, OT Washington 7a.) Daylon Mack, DT Texas A&M 7b.) Renell Wren, DT Arizona St. This would bring in a lot of competition and potential depth/talent for both the offensive and defensive lines, WRs, and edge defense. If we resign the right people we should still have a strong secondary, but that would be a key area of focus heading into the 2020 draft.
  7. 2019 Draft Prospects

    Part of me concurs with this assessment and part of me says Gary is the type of player that doesn't really put up crazy numbers in College but completely blows up in the pros. What worries me about him is that he is a bit of a projection based on physical talent, which some times comes out to be an absolute homerun in the NFL and other times an absolute swing-and-a-miss. That's why I want to see what his actual physical testing shows at the combine and pro day alongside Wilkins (who I think will actually post pretty solid testing numbers) and then go back and watch some of their games again. I think there is some merit to say that some of his lack of production can be attributed to his use in Michigan's system. Something tells me if they straight lined him up on the interior and told him to wreak havoc in the backfield he would have had better production. He doesn't stand out as one of those guys with an extremely high football IQ so when a lot is put on him he can look a bit lost at times.
  8. 2019 Draft Prospects

    Yeah, I would either go with Rashan Gary or Christian Wilkins. I think I might actually lean toward Wilkins, but I have to see how they each measure out at the combine and other pre-draft stuff, and take another look. Either one would be a solid pick.
  9. 2019 Draft Prospects

    He's one of the players I think is a realistic target for us at #17. He is a high quality interior pass rusher/backfield disrupter that has room to get even better. You don't often find his level of athleticism in a 6'4" 315 lb. individual. Pairing him next to Ogunjobi and Garrett, hell yeah, sign me up! My two realistic hopes for our 1st round pick is Christian Wilkins or Jeffery Simmons, if they are both gone, hopefully Greedy Williams/Deandre Baker/Devin White are available.
  10. Let the Mayfield Mayhem Begin

    I can't wait for the tweets that will come when Kitchens and Mayfield hoist the Lombardi trophy together!
  11. 2019 Draft Prospects

    I think it could definitely be worth it depending on the demand. If they would take our first and second this year, and a first and third next year, I would do that in a minute. More than that and it would require careful consideration. Can you imagine Garrett and Bosa paired up? That pass rush would incredibly dominant with already having Ogunjobi's ascending production and potentially being able to move Ogbah inside where I think he would be a good fit given his strength and room for additional size.
  12. 2019 Draft Prospects

    Is it me or is DK Metcalf really hard to judge as a player because of these absolutely putrid QB play? Definitely seems like he has the physical tools, but holy hell it would be nice to see a game where he was being hit reasonably in stride with a somewhat accurate pass.

    Am I the only one that feels completely underwhelmed by the crop of potential coordinators out there? None of the realistic DC candidates impress me in terms of both quality and fit. Chuck Pagano seems like a good candidate, but is predominantly a 3-4 guy, which I do not want a transition to the 3-4 since I have never liked it as a scheme. Jim Schwartz I like, but I can't see something not getting done with Philly to keep him there. Same for Brian Flores in that NE would do something to keep him there. I guess my preference would be Kris Richard (who might land the Dolphins HC gig) or Marquand Manuel. On the OC side, I have no idea where they should go. I almost wouldn't mind an under the radar guy like promoting Lindley to OC so we hopefully keep a young core team coaching our offensive side of the ball for some time. I'm not sure I'm sold on Jim Bob Cooter (whose name I can't stand by the way even if it's not his formal name) on being that wonderful. Another guy I think might be a decent risk would be Zac Taylor (QB coach for the Rams). I'm not sure what to hope for on these coordinator positions. Someone please enlighten me
  14. Baker Beats Payton and Wilson's Rookie TD Record!!!

    I firmly believe Lamar Jackson will be on his way out of the league within 5 years. Once NFL defenses figure out how to shut down the rushing attack, which we started to toward the end of that game, Jackson is done. He isn't going to make it as a passer and once teams have his number he is going to take a beating under which his body won't hold up.
  15. Idiot Savant; John Dorsey wrecks Bill B in trades.

    I hope so. If I were Haslam and Dorsey I would be selling the message to everyone that if you are associated with turning this team around and bringing the city of Cleveland a Lombardi Trophy, you will go down a legend in the football universe. Get everyone to start buying into the special nature of this team and its history and bring it back to glory.
