  1. If your only argument against the Browns is: "LoOk At ThEiR hIsToRy" or "ThEiR hC iS nEw" or "EgOs" then I'll happily take that. Every single team has question marks and if ours isn't really our players then good. I'm sure it's hard to believe the Browns could ever be good. But when it happens... don't act like you predicted it happening just because you were on the pessimistic fence the entire offseason.
  2. NFL Preseason GDT Week 2

    Maybe they trade Murray to the Dolphins and take Tua.
  3. Yep. Replaced Weddle with Thomas so they did upgrade there (assuming Thomas returns to form after the big injury). Their secondary might be the best in the league - Jefferson + Thomas and Humphrey (suuuuper good) + Smith as corners (and Brandon Carr is good too). But they lost a lot elsewhere. Suggs and Smith were their two sack leaders last year. Mosley was the brain of their defense. Michael Pierce showed up to minicamp 800 pounds overweight and got sent home. Even right now he's a little overweight. They're counting on Matt Judon heavily. This will be a Ravens defense that, while having arguably the best secondary in the league, have some questions regarding generating pressure. Should be solid against the run but I think if you give a QB like Mayfield time he will thread needles. With an upgraded WR group vs. aging secondary, I think the Browns guys will be able to get open and Mayfield will have time. Lamar barely played from behind last year and I think this year we'll see how he performs in those situations a lot more. Still should be some tough games though and you can never discount what Harbaugh can do for that team.
  4. I get the feeling we will be shredding defenses. I think the Ravens D is gonna be good, but not incredible. I could see us dropping 30 on them and Lamar only managing 17-21 on us.
  5. Eli Manning as Giants starting QB

    I can tell you one thing: the more time you spend watching Eli play, the less likely you'll know what you have in Jones. You don't want to waste 2-3 years finding out that he's only an average QB at best.
  6. CLE WR Antonio Callaway suspended 4 games

    Hahaha, you're a funny dude.
  7. Duke traded to Houston

    I'm not completely sure about that. Texans could win as low as 7 games IMO. They have a brutal schedule this year and haven't really addressed their O-Line woes. They went on an improbable run to close the season that could've easily been worse. Not trashing them because they're a fairly good team, but their win range is pretty big. Could be double digit wins or much worse. 7-9 teams finished with mid-round picks this past draft.
  8. I'm hearing that our kickers are a mess right now. Seibert has been mostly terrible and while Joseph has been better, he has missed some pretty badly. If there isn't improvement soon, I wouldn't mind kicking the tires on 44 year old Matt Bryant.
  9. Fantasy Football

    Is it full? I'll sign up if not. What platform/site do you use?
  10. Nfl top 100

    Jarvis is certainly overpaid but I'd rather have him at this price than not at all. He played an instrumental role in transforming our losing culture. The day he got here he was recruiting people and all about that Brown and Orange. It really was contagious. Obviously a lot of other factors were involved (Baker, firing Hue/Haley, etc...) but it still stands that Jarvis has helped lift this team out of the dirt. I love his energy on the field too. He keeps us fired up. He's also a top 10 WR blocker as well, which matters more than people acknowledge.
  11. Pick Early AFC Division Winners

    I love that the AFC North is the most polarizing in terms of who will win it. Have seen multiple votes for the Steelers, Ravens, and Browns. MUST WATCH football, ladies and gents.
  12. AJ Green carted off the field

    The Falcons are only a few years removed from being up 28-3 going into the 4th quarter at the Super Bowl. They have a franchise QB who is superior to Dalton. The mindset is that if they can reach the playoffs, anything can happen. So you don't trade Julio, who is not only a year younger than Green, but has only missed 3 regular season games in the past 5 years. Green has missed 16 games. Julio is also a better WR. Then you look at the Bengals team situation - injury after injury after injury. They don't have a realistic shot at winning the Super Bowl, and they may or may not move on from Dalton sooner than later. If they do get a high draft pick, will they pass on on Trevor Lawrence or Tua Tagovailoa? Maybe not. Not to mention Mixon is extremely talented and probably underrated who is only 23'ish - Bengals are possibly on the cusp of rebuilding. AJ Green doesn't fit this timeline. Anyway, I don't think the Bengals are morons but I can see why people think they should've pulled the trigger on the rebuild already.
  13. I'm going to the Aug 2nd training camp. Here's to hoping for an injury-free camp!
  14. Duke fires his agent

    I'd flip Duke for a 4th. Here are 10 reasons why: 1. He wants out - doesn't matter too much if he causes chemistry issues or not. The man doesn't want to be here and expressed it to the public. Simple as that. 2. He can ~potentially~ become a distraction. I don't expect him to be, but it could happen, especially if we lose some early games. 3. The market for RBs is terrible right now. Unfortunately, Jordan Howard set it after being traded to the Eagles and now anything better than a 6th will require a RB as talented as Howard. A 4th would be great value for Duke. 4. Piggybacking off the above - 4ths can be quite valuable if the scouting department is solid. We got Callaway with our 4th last year and Redwine (an unknown right now). We also traded a 3rd (practically 4th) that we got from New England as part of the package to get OBJ. 4ths can generally be upgraded to 3rds in the following year if traded. Basically, let's not act like a 4th can't have good value. 5. Hunt returns after 8 games, which will introduce some redundancies in terms of playstyle. 6. Dontrell Hilliard (I'm super high on him) has played well in his appearances, interception notwithstanding. 7. Duke's a 2nd (3rd string when Hunt returns) on a air-raid style offense that will likely sling it through the air this year. Even if you think he's Barry Sanders incarnate, his role here is not going to be hefty. Chubb appears to have the makings of a bell-cow RB anyway. 8. RBs will be cut throughout camp and preseason. There are a couple of names out there right now that may be able to mitigate the loss of Duke (which wouldn't be enormous anyway). 9. RBs are among the easiest positions to replace, both from free agency and in the draft. While Hunt may be here for another season or two, we can easily draft some decent prospects in the later rounds to offset any loss. 10. Because Baker The King In the North Mayfield said you're on this train or not.
  15. Washington RB Derrius Guice hurts hammy

    Why do that when they can get Duke Johnson who is under contract for 3 years and isn't seeking big bucks for just a 4th rounder?
