  1. Duke Johnson trade imminent. *updates to come*

    Well I got to see Kizer in person, so there.
  2. Duke Johnson trade imminent. *updates to come*

    I expect Dorsey to find value throughout the draft. Avery was a 5th round pick. DeValve barely lines up. We really need a TE2. Our WR aren't the biggest, so having another redzone threat would be nice. I know we were solid in the second half of the season in that department though. I also know that Harris is a big guy, but there's at least one spot open, with a second that can use some competition. I live in England and unfortunately don't have the money to fly to Cleveland.
  3. Duke Johnson trade imminent. *updates to come*

    Just having names and bodies doesn't mean squat. Most of the players on this team can (and should be) upgraded. DeValve has no value and hasn't shown anything other than being injury prone, Harris hasn't proved a thing, Charles is our FB. There's two spots there. I can't even be bothered with the rest. Just know that you're wrong.
  4. Duke Johnson trade imminent. *updates to come*

    Kirksey needs to play well to not get cut at the end of this year, Schobert may have priced himself of being able to re-sign him, I like Avery, but I wouldn't want him to be an every-down LB. Taylor and Armstrong are just bodies. We need to draft at least one LB high and ideally one late. I don't know what team carries 7 WRs on their roster. We need high DB talent and depth, DL depth. TE2 can be upgraded. And we need to get guys in ready to take over for players that we can't afford to re-sign.
  5. Duke Johnson trade imminent. *updates to come*

    We need 3-4 linebackers, never mind upgrades and depth for other positions. At least two picks on DBs, maybe a TE, an OL, quality depth on the DL. We also need to stagger the rookie contracts so cheaper players can take over positions to keep the spending down for when we pay Garrett, Baker, Ward etc.
  6. Building the Browns (Season 2)

    He just needs someone to keep him in check. We could do a hell of a lot worse than Jimmy. Love Nathan Zegura's wide smile in the background.
  7. Well Dorsey managed to grab two of them. Not bad. I'm more than happy with Baker and certainly wouldn't prefer Darnold/Watson after everything Baker's done, both on and off the field.
  8. So Baker isn't so important if you could just take someone else then? Darnold and infighting compared to Baker and everyone on the same page? Hmm.
  9. Who's to say that Sashi could get the go ahead to take Mayfield at no.1? QBs an important position that Haslem would have wanted to have a say in it.
  10. Exactly. Dorsey has more say than Sashi ever did. That is huge. It doesn't matter what the old FO wanted, they hired Hue when none of them wanted him. That shows no backbone, and when Sashi did stand up for his team he got fired. With or without Mayfield, with Sashi and no Dorsey, we would be a ticking time bomb. Haslem would have a say in everything, and we would continue to make stupid decisions. There would be more infighting. We may have one or two good seasons, but nothing sustainable. It would be Mayfield and Haslem interference vs. someone who actually has the ability to get his own way who knows what he's doing. Obviously we've got the best of both worlds, which is a good thing.
  11. Hiring Dorsey by some distance. Yes it's a QB driven league, but we were a lot more than a QB away from competing. We needed someone to get everyone else on the same page, from the owner down. We were not a normal team pre-Dorsey. I liked Sashi, but he would never have had the clout or respect needed to stop Haslem continuing to interfere. Had we kept Sashi and still drafted Baker, we'd still be a mess of a franchise. There was no putting a band-aid on that. It's not ill will towards Jimmy and Dee, but they were in over their heads and needed someone that they could trust in order for us to prosper. Hue was going to be fired regardless. He wouldn't have been hired by Dorsey in the first place. The only one who wanted him was Haslem, going over the heads of people who knew what they were talking about. He's not going to do that anymore with Dorsey here.
  12. I totally get why they're all about Eli. If Baker wins two Superbowls for us then I would want to leave it totally down to him when he decides to step back. Plus Eli is a Manning. It was a trade that made sense for both teams. A team is never a WR away from a winning, but we're not just adding a WR. Plus we were in a position where we could afford to pay what we did. Things happen. OBJ isn't a bad guy whatsoever. His relationship with the Giants just came to a head. Too much water under the bridge.
  13. Browns RB Duke Johnson requests trade

    Or a kicker? I'd rather have a kicker with NFL experience than throw a rookie in to what is going to be a high pressure situation.

    Just had a nightmare that we traded him to the Dolphins. Wtf is wrong with me?..
  15. When did you fall in love with football?

    2008, week 17, Broncos Chargers. That was the first time I tried watching the NFL. I tuned in just before the second half and I was entranced. Darren Sproles was amazing. He's the reason I fell in love with this sport. I then bought a second hand copy of Madden 08 and ended up a Browns fan.
