  1. I think we might be burying the lead here with the Walker signing. Darius Leonard attributes the majority of his development and success to Walker. Can he help do the same with Mack Wilson, Takitaki, or Jacob Phillips? 

    We've got one of the better run stopping LBs in Walker and one of the better pass covering LBs in Malcolm Smith. Hopefully those two can work to tutor up the young pups.

    I have a weird gut feeling that we went hard in FA on defense to go hard on offense in the draft. I understand that the defense was bad but just an odd feeling I have that these guys decide to attack the offense in the draft. Outside of Odell (if he's still here) we lack explosion at WR

    My draft prediction: 

    1 Edge, 1 DL, 1 CB, 1 SAF/Slot, 1 WR, 1 OL

    Nfl defense is just a little more complex than cooking.  I’m just saying.

    but to roll with your analogy, a chef works at a restaurant, prime rib is the most popular item on the menu.  The “thrifty” owner finds chicken on sale and stocks up on chicken and runs out of prime rib, then tells the chef you have chicken, make it happen captain....

    it doesn’t really work.

    You suck at this. I'd like to think I could explain it to you, but... I'd soon be a danger to myself or others.

    Great, so if you own a Ford and the alternator goes out, do you buy an alternator for a Chevy when you go to the parts store just because that’s what is in stock?

    after 20 years of no direction at all and sucking, we finally have direction.  Our fans have been conditioned to scrap everything in an instance in a whim.

    I don't buy your car part analogy. I prefer mine: if the price of beef is up and chicken's on sale, we're cooking chicken. A good chef/coach should be able to cook a gourmet meal with either.

    Trust the coach do run the system that he knows best and can most effectively coach.  Dont ask him to do something that is way out of his comfort zone.

    Fit the personnel to the scheme or the scheme to the personnel? Analytics folks are always looking for market inefficiencies, right? Right now there's a market inefficiency on man corners.

  6. If Joe Woods would commit to a man coverage defense, it would be beneficial, but I think he's a Seattle zone guy from what I've heard. Denzel and Greedy(at LSU at least) are best at man coverage, as are Gareon Conley and Kevin King, two cheap FA's. Conley and King are available on the cheap because their previous teams tried to square peg them into zone defenses and torched their value. 

    When the hell are teams going to stop drafting top flight man corners for primarily zone defenses?

    There is no way a DE will be BPA where we pick in R1 or R2.

    There's no way we can say this, yet. You just never know how the draft may play out. To a certain extent, I understand this thinking with R1, but R2 is a complete unknown at this point.

    I just want to say thank you for doing a big solid and smuggling this. Once I heard you were a real mover and shaker--amazing muscular control--it really was a no-brainer and even saved me a few bucks compared to just an Uber across town.


    I'm not, but I just wanna say I'm sorry it turned out they were vegans

    and that I never paid you

    and that the people are vegans--actually a little sorry about that one--

    and for the d̶i̶s̶comfort with Customs

    and for making that anonymous tip to Customs

    and for telling you you had to cross the border for no reason

    and for leaving you all those voicemails about a hot dog down a hallway

    and that we didn't kill the octopus first.



    No worries. There are worse ways to spend a Saturday night🤔😊

    Why? Watt can be just as deadly stopping the run. Watt last year was the most doubled and tripled team edge rusher in the league. Garrett was top5 in that. Guess what, one of those have to give. 

    watt is still too good to just limit him. He had more tackles and TFL than Garrett last year and I believe one less QB hit

    Because I would want to cut his snaps down dramatically to preserve him for the playoffs, and his greatest value to us is as an interior pass rusher. He can play the run well, I just don't want to waste his precious snaps on run plays. Having him healthy for the playoffs is the top priority.

  10. I'm more interested in signing Carl Lawson or Romeo Okwara than most of these aging stars. 

    Personally, if I signed Watt I'd want to cut his snaps in half, playing him primarily on passing downs, on the inside. 

    Same with Von Miller, but on the outside.

    January 5th 2003.

    Kelly Holcombe has a fantastic performance vs the rival Pittsburg Steelers, taking the Browns to a big lead. Needing a 1st down to win Holcombe makes what would be a game winning throw, Dennis Northcutt drops the pass, Pittsburg go onto win the game. The Browns fall apart the next season, and seemingly every season after that until 2020. 

    18 years. until the next browns playoff game.

    You could have had a love child and payed it off since our last playoff game 

    And in 18 years....
    ....the world has changed. iPhone, internet, wars have been fought and ended, hell four countries didn't exist in 2003 that now do., the city where I live has had approximately 20,000 earthquakes since the Browns last played in the playoffs. Hell, @bruceb has married the love of his life a couple of times since the browns last went to the playoffs.  

     Lives have been changed and also lost, at this time it is worth taking a moment to remember those who would have wanted to see this day

    @crackburn, I am sure some other members of the board have fallen and we dont know, I am sure many here have lost family members who are Browns fans who wanted to see a franchise worth watching.

    Out, our leader who has turned with ship around. A big reason to feel down. Our pro bowl LG, possibly two corners, one who is truly excellent.  But legends are not made during ideal times they are made during adversity, we can feel down about the difficulty and the lack of sympathy from Goodell or we can believe that the boys are going to go to pitt an rip crap up. We dont bend the knee to adversity we stare it in the ******* face and say bring it on *****. and then bring some more. 

    When you are going through hell keep on going. 

    The old Browns would have laid down week 5 or 6. That aint us no more.

    this is how the new browns will go to pitt

    Why will we win?

    Easy, Garrett is better than Watt, Baker is better than Big Ben, and every other match up a part from our corners vs their receivers  is in our favor. sans Cody Parkey. To be honest i think we played last week with this week in mind, We didnt run chubb all that uch, we were giving carries to a less effective back in Hunt. We didnt run a zone run to the right after chubb scored his touchdown iirc, certainly didnt run it more than twice. 
    We played last week as if it was practice. 

    This week will be a hell of a game.  And i am sure as hell we aint going to yield no matter what the result is. 

    Go Browns. 

    I'm back lil buddy.
