  1. Browns WR Antonio Callway Cited for Marijuana

    Good thing they got rid of such a malcontent like Corey Coleman. Really.... really cleaning up the locker room there.
  2. Browns trade WR Corey Coleman to the Bills

    Wouldn't be surprised if it's not with Nick Chubb, Duke Johnson and Carlos Hyde at running back as well as a much better interior line than they do offensive tackle duo.
  3. Browns trade WR Corey Coleman to the Bills

    Name one current team with a worse starting quarterback in the NFL than the Bills. Of course he did. He's a risk averse quarterback and you have (had prior to this trade) the worst receiver corps in the NFL too. If he didn't trust Zay Jones, I would assume it was because he somehow went from being someone who was the all time college leader in receptions to someone who couldn't catch a cold if you left him in Antarctica for two weeks and Kelvin Benjamin, well when is Kelvin Benjamin truly open? Make no mistake, I may think Tyrod Taylor is a terrible quarterback and a poor man's version of Alex Smith, but Bills fans saw why he was as risk averse as he was when they tried to put his backup Nathan Peterception (who is somehow in the running to start for the Bills) in the game. Tyrod Taylor may be bottom five, maybe even bottom three, but the Bills are the absolute worst and there is no close second.
  4. Browns trade WR Corey Coleman to the Bills

    In the case of Tyrod Taylor, I'd say bottom five, bottom seven at best; but there is a case to be made he is a bottom three starting quarterback in the NFL, especially if you're assuming that a not-terrible Teddy Bridgewater is the starting quarterback for the Jets and not counting unknowns. Just the same, if you polled FF, the worst QB situation in the league is without question Buffalo. Now, if the Browns have a surrounding cast of Josh Gordon, Antonio Callaway, Jarvis Landry, David Njoku, Duke Johnson, Nick Chubb, Carlos Hyde and possibly Dez Bryant, that's a group of talent that can elevate Tyrod Taylor. But subtract a few of those and things don't look nearly as rosy given the Browns offensive line situation.
  5. Browns trade WR Corey Coleman to the Bills

    This doesn't follow for a couple of reasons. Calling Tyrod Taylor terrible doesn't make him the worst in the league. Buffalo had a terrible quarterback in Tyrod Taylor. But they have managed to find a way to downgrade the position. It's like how Cleveland had terrible quarterbacks in Josh McCown and Johnny Manziel, but managed to find a way to downgrade to Robert Griffin III and Cody Kessler and then managed to find away to downgrade again to DeShone Kizer. Just because Kizer was the worst doesn't make RG3, Cody Kessler, Johnny Manziel or Josh McCown good, it just makes them better by comparison. But quarterback isn't the only position the Bills offense downgraded. In fact, without the new addition of Corey Coleman, you could argue the Bills had an across the board degradation in talent with the sole exception of TE, where they stayed the same. Teams can get worse from one year to the next without an appreciable roster change. Players get hurt, don't live up to their prior performances, etc. Just ask the 2017 New York Giants. We have a thread in NFL General asking which playoff contending team will collapse this year. Because playoff contending teams collapse every year. It does, but not in the way you think. But it shows the continuation of a trend: The Browns possibly as a response to the management of Sashi Brown, have become a team incapable of getting appropriate value in trades. Ehhhhh, decent value given what they gave up for him, but I wouldn't call him a huge steal. It fills a need, giving the Bills arguably their top receiver and a vertical threat the Bills were sorely lacking given the quarterback they just drafted. However, Coleman gives the Bills yet another receiver with questionable hands (how is it possible the all-time leader in college receptions has such bad hands? How does that even happen?), this time with questionable health to boot. It's possible the addition of Coleman bumps Buffalo out of the top spot in terms of worst receiver corps, but they're still at best bottom five.
  6. Who's due for a career year in 2018?

    Not if Allen Robinson, Taylor Gabriel and Anthony Miller have anything to say about it.
  7. Titans sign Kenny Vaccaro

    Given who their free safety is, I think it is unlikely they would sign Reid unless Vaccaro gets hurt or until possibly next year.
  8. Browns trade WR Corey Coleman to the Bills

    I can't believe no one has called this post out yet. Landry has not been playing just the slot for Cleveland, he has been on the outside a lot as well, and he has looked unstoppable. Just because Miami used him as just a slot guy, does not mean that is all that he can do. He said he did what he was asked to do in Miami, but he can do it all. From what he has shown in camp so far, he wasn't exaggerating at all, he has looked like a beast. Maybe nobody else called it out because this at best shifts the problem. No matter how good you think Landry or Callaway are, they're still just two receivers.
  9. Browns trade WR Corey Coleman to the Bills

    Unless Callaway is so good in camp that he can play both outside receiver positions simultaneously, I have to assume at the very least either Josh Gordon will be playing for the Browns or Dez Bryant will be playing for the Browns.
  10. Browns trade WR Corey Coleman to the Bills

    Assuming this is in relation to the possibility of Dez, why not?
  11. Browns trade WR Corey Coleman to the Bills

    I have to assume either Josh Gordon will be playing for the Browns or Dez Bryant will be playing for the Browns. Or both.
  12. Wait, so Hargreaves and Grimes are going to be the Bucs starting outside corners even after drafting Carlton Davis in the second round?
  13. Chicago Bears - With a Minnesota team that go so close to the Superbowl and Aaron Rodgers returning to Green Bay, I don't see it. Cleveland Browns - Not with Tyrod Taylor at QB, potentially no Josh Gordon and Joel Bitonio (maybe?) and Chris Hubbard at offensive tackle. Denver Broncos - I think they have a shot if Patrick Mahomes doesn't figure it out at QB in Kansas City. The ChargIRs are supremely talented, but have already gotten started losing star after star. Houston Texans - Deshaun Watson proved me wrong. I didn't expect him to do well in Houston and he did. But he's a mobile quarterback coming off of a major injury behind the worst offensive line in the NFL. I'll believe J.J. Watt is the multiple time DPOY and not a shell of his former self when I see it. So I don't think they are going to do it. New York Giants - They have the talent to make the playoffs as a wildcard if they can stay healthy. But the Giants almost never stay healthy, and with a few exceptions, their depth is razor thin everywhere. New York Jets - Ahahahahahahahahahahahahaha. Oh you're serious. Let me laugh harder. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. No, the Jets do not have a lot of talent on defense. They have a lot of talent in their secondary and Leonard Williams. They have depth at quarterback, a woefully underrated receiver corps and mediocre running backs. Their line sucks, they have no TE's and their front seven can be described as Leonard Williams and friends in a division with the GOAT head coach and GOAT quarterback. San Francisco 49ers - I think the 49ers have the best opportunity to go from worst to first. I thought they made a huge mistake drafting Tremaine Edmunds. I'll be honest, I still do think that was mistake, but not as much as it would have been had Reuben Foster not been completely exonerated. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - They far and away have the best talent of any team on this list. I loved their draft and aside from Chris Conte, I don't think they have any holes on their roster on paper. However, questions are still present regarding arguably the two most important people on the Buccaneers team, their starting quarterback and their head coach. The Bucs have the talent to make the playoffs, but so did the Jaguars in 2016 and that didn't happen until some changes were made.
  14. What would you offer for Khalil Mack?

    It's almost as though there is a reason players of Khalil Mack's ability don't get commonly traded. So, here's a question for you, how much would you be willing to trade for a 26 y/o consensus top 3 defensive player not yet in his prime such as Aaron Donald (Donald is 27 but so is Mack) if you couldn't include Khalil Mack as part of the deal? Would you be willing to give up three or four first rounders and then pay him 30 million mostly guaranteed dollars a year? I'm betting that you wouldn't nine times out of ten, and the tenth time is you trying to prove a point about Khalil Mack.
  15. No I don't. IIRC, I had Josh Allen as my #6 quarterback in this year's draft and he has gone to a team with little offensive talent aside from Shady McCoy. I think he will be a bust, full stop. That being said, I understand why Buffalo took him ahead of Josh Rosen. Buffalo is not an easy town to throw a football in thanks to the winds. Buffalo needed a quarterback who had that kind of howitzer arm and that just isn't Josh Rosen.
