  1. Draft Discussion 2.0

    I still think the best hit I ever saw delivered was Russell on Chad Johnson.... no way does he not get an automatic ejection on that nowadays.
  2. While I appreciate you taking the time to spell things out in impressive length and explaining what you believe I may or may not have missed, unfortunately it was done needlessly as I am aware of Joe's pragmatic understanding of the plan vs. the reality and yet I still provided the post I did. I think all you really needed to put was that last sentence, to which I'll respond: I agree, i think Joe is a really thoughtful person and I don't take any exception to him expressing his opinion. That being said, it doesn't change a lot of the realities I witnessed with Hue over the past two seasons and I don't think there has been anything groundbreaking Joe's divulged from being on the inside that has swayed my belief that Hue deserved to be just as accountable for the failures of the last two seasons as Sashi (whom I also believe deserved to lose his job).
  3. Basically, to me this piece proved 2 things: 1. There are players who still like Hue, headlined by Joe (which isn't news to anyone) and 2. Joe places sole accountability for the 1-31 season on Sashi, which I think is human to begrudge a front-office who drastically tore the team down in the twilight of his career. That being said, I don't understand why this should be some definitive stance on why Hue shouldn't have been fired. Are we just forgetting the really bad in-game decisions Hue made? Or how he treated two rookie QBs, two seasons in a row? Or the constant scapegoating, despite claiming he would hold himself accountable? Frankly, I wish Joe had just written about his support of Hue moving forward. Hue is here to stay, and heck I might even still be convinced he can be a long-term answer at some point (especially with him ceding play calling duty to Haley), but the constant re-litigating of the past two seasons is just so exhausting and whether it's Joe Thomas, or Anthony Lima, or Jimmy Haslam trying to convince fans Hue is innocent of the worst two year record ever in the NFL, I don't care - let's just bury the dag thing and look toward a brighter future.
  4. Browns OC search

    Not that it should surprise anyone, but ... https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/report-no-offer-for-texans-qb-coach-sean-ryan/ Here's what I don't understand though - why bring Ryan in at all? It was said from the get-go that he wanted play calling duties and Hue had to have known all along that he wasn't giving that responsibility up, so clearly this doomed to be a mismatch from the start. Was this Dorsey trying to flex muscle and forcing Hue to just take the interview?
  5. 2018 Off-season Coaching Staff Changes

    Here's my theory - Jimmy Haslam sees how Hue is into some real Game of Thrones, plotting and backstabbing stuff, and in some twisted billionaire way he's decided this is a lot more fun to watch play out than actually fielding a successful football team. So in season 3, House Dorsey is the latest on the scene and attempting to seize power from House Jackson, who is in the midst of sending all his former allies to the gallows and bringing in new generals.

    I was just coming here to say the same thing. In any line of work, the best way to maintain job security is making sure you're the only one in the organization who can do your job. Clearly Hue is doing what Hue does best and is looking out for himself by retaining as much power as he can and making sure there's as large an impact as possible if he's in line to be fired.
  7. LOCK//DELETE THREAD - Couldn't Edit/Change Outdated Poll

    Personally, I say take QB1 @ 1, whomever that may be ... but we should gird our loins Browns fans for a trade down, as crazy and as "LOL TRADE DOWNZ BROWNZ!" meme worthy that may be. I can't recall who said it on twitter yesterday (apologies), but to paraphrase, someone made the apt point that there is a good chance this is Dorsey's last go around as a GM, so if isn't convinced any of the guys coming out at QB is worthy enough to hitch his wagon to his first year on the job and he's happy enough with guys 1-4 on his big board to take @ 4, I could totally see that being the outcome. If you think about it, it's really kinda funny... I believe that having traded down last year (much to the chagrin of the Cleveland media and a large amount of Browns fans) and acquiring the number 4 overall this year is what is allowing Dorsey the wiggle room to trade down again this year.
  8. Browns OC search

    This Sean Ryan interview makes no sense, whatsoever. It's being reported that Houston wants to retain him, but he is looking for a job where he can call plays. Hue is the playcaller and chances are slim he'd give that up to an unknown quantity. It's reported Hue wants an established guy, someone he can count on (think Pep Hamilton, before he left). Ryan is as green as they get. Hue said, just yesterday(!):"It is something that I have thought about, adding a coordinator here, I think the staff decisions for me will be from reflecting over the next week or so and just seeing where we are, seeing what I think in need to do to help this organization be the best it can be....I will go back through and look at everything, all the guys that are on our staff and all of those things. That is going to be a little time.” 24 hours later the Browns are already requesting interviews? Jackson and Ryan have no previous connections. Things continue to make less and less sense.
  9. Hue Jackson's best friend right now is Carson Wentz - after his Monday night performance, the media has predictably turned it's wrath away from Hue and back to the "why didn't you take Carson Wentz" front, which is awesome because now not only can I get depressed about the qb's we have on the roster, but I can get depressed over guys who aren't even Cleveland Browns! At least we didn't take Akili Smith, amirite?!?!? While I still kinda feel like asking a new regime with a couple months under its belt to commit their franchise to a DII prospect QB and not take the treasure trove of picks they know they needed is a big ask, but at this point when the team is this bad it's tough to justify an argument for anyone in any type of decision making position.
  10. Texans watch: 2017

    Aw shucks you guys - I didn't even think anyone would notice I was gone! As for where I was, unfortunately it was not a month long bender, which I don't foresee happening anytime in the near future - as you may recall I mentioned that my wife and I were expecting (and to clarify, I mean we were expecting a child that is - we weren't expecting a honey baked ham or front row tickets to the Wiz or anything else), and go figure the kiddo decided September 8th was as good a time as any to show up (mom and baby both did great). As you can imagine, things have been hectic since then, plus with the Browns latest round of sucking it's been tough to make time to sign-in.... that being said, knowing the emotional rollercoaster it puts you on @Thomas5737, I'll be sure to be much more considerate when I need to take another extended leave. Anywho, I'll probably be around more often, but in the meantime I thought this would be a good pic to introduce all of you to my daughter Evelyn:
  11. Week 1 GDT: Stillers at Da Brahnz

    My prediction? Revisiting the 1989 opening day... Also, new new-forum rule: every Steelers gtd needs to have this picture posted somewhere in it...
  12. Browns Go WR Shopping

    Even if it's not Kearse specifically, I feel like that is the type of signing we should prepare for - a third wide receiver who won't light the team up but just adds to the depth of the WR corps.
  13. Haden released

    Willkommen @Fatgerman! I liebe bier! (7 years of Deutsche klasse right there)
  14. We need another CB!

    Curious - where on the depth chart does Haden project for you now? It'll be surreal seeing him in black and gold week one.
  15. Haden released

    I think there is some of that...
