  1. QB and coach - I think I've stated this several times now? I'm as confident in Baker as anyone else - but no one can say he's going to be our guy. And no one can say anything about Stefanski right now.
  2. Are you trolling? The Indians were in the World Series just 4 years ago and were competing at a high level, even being favored to make deep playoff runs (with disappointing losses). They already have Tito in place and have had numerous talented pitchers. They SHOULD have had a bigger budget. The Browns haven't had more than 7 wins in 13 years. No QB or coach worth investing heavily into. They should be careful with spending until the foundation is set and we look like we're playoff contenders - at which point we should spend more.
  3. The Chiefs will win because they have a bonafide QB and coach in place. Philly has a legit coach and QB in place. New Orleans has the same combination. The Rams have the coach but the QB is questionable, and that's why they're trending downward because they mismanaged their cap space. You're arguing from 100% emotion because you want us to start winning, but I'm glad our front office isn't looking through the same lens. We want to build our foundation (GM, coach, QB) and once that's in place then we can be more active with spending that cap space. We have a lot of young tal
  4. The Chiefs will soon have a roster composed of Mahomes, Kelce, Hill, Jones, and 49 vet minimum players. They're cashing in now BECAUSE they have had success, and it has worked since Mahomes is playing at a HOF level. We'd be idiots to spend everything and we haven't won more than 7 games in over a decade. Not to mention our QB's name isn't Mahomes so we need to be smart about our spending until we know FOR SURE Baker is our franchise QB.
  5. I mean, that depends on which way they're trending. If our stud WR puts up another disappointing year and Chubb continues trending towards becoming the 2nd best RB to ever play for our team, then it's not an easy decision to make. Chubb can be a legendary, HOF player and he has the best attitude/demeanor on the entire team. I'm FAR from the type of fan that criticizes OBJ (I'm always defending him) but if we're going to directly compare him to Chubb, then I have to put some value on Chubb's attitude. Hunt is unreliable off the field. I'm also not buying this new herd-like mentality around
  6. I wouldn't be shocked if we decided to move on from OBJ rather than Chubb if it came down to it.
  7. https://247sports.com/nfl/cleveland-browns/Article/Kevin-Stefanski-Wide-Zone-Run-142274849/ That's pretty much all the detail you'll need. A short and sweet summarized version: Wide Zone blocking schemes is about the offensive line blocking while moving horizontally. The point is to gain leverage and push the defense into tight spaces while the running back makes 'one cut' and is able to get downfield. It can be extremely effective as you see average RBs have enormous games. The running game is 'marriaged' with the passing game. This means that most running plays look like passi
  8. Agree. Same applies for people who have newborns or wives that are pregnant. My wife is 8-weeks pregnant and I'd definitely opt out if I was an NFL player. I'm lucky to have a job where I'm working from home.
  9. OBJ is a talent that's rare and you want to keep him if possible. The fat trimming will come in the form of decent (not elite) players like Tretter, Bitonio, Richardson, Ogunjobi, etc... Those are the positions you want to cycle through, asumming you're drafting well. And then if someone like Wills or a new draft player turns into an elite monster, you extend him. OBJ is not untouchable but he's certainly not at the top of the list like some of you are wanting.
  10. OBJ just went back to his blonde hair though. He got his superpowers back.
  11. I agree. I know the following is a weird line of thinking but it's my gut feeling: I think we want to sign/extend Hunt to create more leverage in our talks with Chubb. If Chubb wants too much, we let him walk and happily stick with Hunt. If Chubb is willing to come back for a reasonable deal, we'll bring him back even if it means having to move on from Hunt (not that we'd want to) to do so.
  12. Alright, it just comes across a little weird, the way it was worded. Basically "In this day and age I wouldn't be surprised (because he's black) if he thinks losing out is due to racism." But I'll take your word for it. I'd personally rather we trade Njoku and sign a guy like Delanie Walker as a cheap vet to add depth.
  13. Yeah, I think Drew gets into these players ears and convince them they can get big paydays. I don't see it with Njoku but the logic is there.
  14. What exactly does this mean then: It sounds like you're trying to say that Njoku may turn this into a racial thing because of Hooper and Bryant being brought in. I'm not insulting you, but if you're going to make this kind of ridiculous statement - please clarify what you're saying. The well is drying for him here. Again - a toddler can see that. Hooper is #1 and will be #1 for his contract. Bryant can possibly eclipse Njoku. Why would Njoku want to stay in a place where he might get bumped down to the #3 TE spot? He has two years left on his contract - yes, so he's better
  15. Did I just read this correctly? Dude's contract is coming up. He lost his starting position to Hooper. Harrison Bryant was drafted and can potentially threaten the #2 spot. He has a better chance of earning big money with another team that has a need at the TE position. I mean, a toddler can put it together. However, you'd rather ignore all of that and instead preemptively accuse him of using the race card? JFC, no wonder this country is the mess it is right now.
  16. Where did I say that? I bolded the quoted part intentionally. Defense is not "see ball, hit ball".
  17. Please tell me you don't seriously believe that. There is a ton of communication and trust involved on defense that develops with time. Simple gap and coverage assignments rely on chemistry and understanding when to stay in your lane and when to cover for someone else.
  18. Well, I mean Myles is gonna get 20+. Baker is the best QB we've had since Bernie. The front office and coaching staff appears to have full faith in his ability. So that's another 25+ million gone. If your argument is that we should trade for Jamal and sign him to a huge contract because Baker might not be good enough to get an extension then acquiring Jamal would be meaningless anyway since we'd need a QB. That's kind of a weird way to look at it. I disagree about Chubb. I feel like people are adopting this sheep-like mentality that all RBs are not worth big money and they regurgitate it
  19. There will be a ton of roster/bubble cuts that we will be able to look at. I'm guessing we will add in another vet or two at the LB position.
  20. I must be the only one who still have as much faith in Baker as I did when we drafted him. The heel turn he has taken for Browns fans after last year is pretty crazy to me. I mean, I know he didn't have a good year at all but do our fans think he's actually a bad QB now? Even if you isolate his one horrendously awful, worst-ever-season-for-a-QB (it's so heavily overblown to be bad and that's because of the hype), when was the last time we had a QB that did better? Josh McCown perhaps? Hoyer? We will be fine. He's the best QB we've had since Bernie - one bad year with crazy hype, 2nd
  21. Agree, but that's no guarantee. We have no idea how Ben will be as QBs can easily fall off a cliff at his age, especially coming back from injury. Big Ben is easily a better QB than Duck and Rudolph but those two were put into an offense tweaked to not rely on them and to limit their mistakes. It's not like they were thrown out there and were completely decimated. Together, they went 276/443 (62%) 18 TDs and 17 INTs. As Browns fans, we've seen far worse QB play. Ben is not going to be coming back to a team with as many weapons. He's not going to be slinging the ball all over and shre
  22. I almost want Jamal Adams to be traded JUST to see the 180 degree turn by Jets fans in this thread. Especially if he said something negative about the team following the trade.
  23. Baseball die-hards tend to be really jealous of football fans for some reason.
  24. He's going to get 15 million. Myles is going to get 20+ next year. Baker and Denzel the following year. We don't even know how the salary cap will be, given the covid-19 pandemic. It would feel pretty Dorsey'ish to give up a 1st and 3rd + 15 million like that. For his limited time I thought Morgan Burnett was solid - let's roll with Joseph/Sendejo and see what we have there alongside Delpit.
