  1. Are the playoffs really out of the question?

    Hey, at least someone is on-board my 9-7 train lol: http://www.nfl.com/videos/cleveland-browns/0ap3000000934890/Reggie-Bush-Browns-will-go-9-7-in-2018
  2. Are the playoffs really out of the question?

    Sticking to my guns on all my earlier predictions before the draft: 9-7 with a wild card game loss. We are a better team and the schedule is not nearly as brutal as everyone is making it out to be.

    Similar motives perhaps ? Messages

    IMO they never were really, truly a fan in the first place if they can change like that. If the Browns never won another game between now and my death, I would still be a Browns fan. Since 1976 I have watched no other NFL games outside of Browns games, when the Browns left town and there were no Browns, I simply did not watch football. I get up at 2-3 AM every Sunday night/Monday morning due to living in Japan to watch the games live and drag through the day at the office afterwards as a result just so I can watch them play. At the same time, I do not consider myself a fanatic at all as I only own 1 jersey, a couple t-shirts, a hat and never went to a live game (even though I come from the Canton area originally), but I just cannot conceive of rooting for any team outside of the Browns. If you are so fixated on winning that you feel the need to switch teams, or jump ship because they did not select your guy, then so be it - but you never were truly a fan. That said, we all have different convictions and things that drive us, so to each their own.
  5. Why are you here? (10,000th post)

    I was doing random searches for Browns news due to living in Japan and not finding a lot when I happened upon the forum. I stalked it for a few year before joining. Cannot recall the actual post I just had to respond to which got me to actually join (and too lazy to go to the old site and try to look it up). I am sure however that is was a a post similar to the ones that keep me around still - the constant dysfunctional personal interactions among the Browns forum posters here that make it better than a daytime soap opera drama oh, and the occasion Browns snippet.

    9-7, make the wild card round and lose. Said it weeks ago and sticking with it!

    My two favorites: -My ex-wife used to say "Don't give me any slack" instead of "don't give me any flack" - A former co-worker would say "... to be Pacific" instead of "...to be specific".

    We go 9-7, make the play offs, but lose in the wild card game. Mayfield does not start at all this year
  9. 2018 Cleveland Browns Draft Class/Dorsey thread

    If you haven't noticed by now, the current leadership has made national pundits and the media look like fools with their predictions of what the Browns will be doing. In the end, it is the leadership that may turn out to be the fools, but going with what everyone thinks will happen is not something they do it seems.
  10. Baker Mayfield; No.1 Overall pick 2018.

    Not directly Baker related but...it has been bugging me for awhile that Sam Darnold reminded me of someone but could not place it until it hit me this morning - Syndrome from "The Incredibles" movie. Am I nuts or do they not look similar? Cannot place comparison photos atm since at work and our network sucks.
  11. Gordon and Callaway

    Agreed. My wife used to smoke 2-2.5 packs a day when we were first together. She tried slowly reducing that amount on numerous occasion with no success. When she found out she was pregnant with our first son she stopped cold turkey and never went back to smoking afterwards.
  12. 2018 Cleveland Browns Draft Class/Dorsey thread

    First poll in a long time where I have not selected the Hornby option so obviously this draft was a win.
  13. Gordon and Callaway

    I have a couple friends that are weak minded enough to be convinced they are addicted to it and cannot stop. Every little thing that goes wrong they have to use it or they will simply die (in their mind). No real physical need, all mental. Luckily they are not Browns fans, nor a part of this forum or they would constantly be in a smoke cloud.
  14. Day 3 of the 2018 Draft

    You will not convince the bulk of the guys in here that it was even a decent draft. The sky is falling.
