    Terrific doesn't necessarily mean PERFECT or FLAWLESS or BEST. I thought I clarified that before. Yes, you are zeroing in on terminology now because your stance is crumbling. Ward, a rookie CB is a pro bowler and grades out extremely well statistically. He was, indeed, a terrific pick.

    Makes sense. Unfortunate that people can't be more objective. I'll refrain from engaging him if that's all it's about since arguing would be pointless.

    It's less about a couple draft picks and more about turning an entire franchise around. If he only did well on Mayfield and Ward and nothing else then he wouldn't be getting praise. But I listed all the things he has done and completely revived a franchise that was in the dumps. The Browns have very young and extremely promising cornerstone players at QB, EDGE, and CB, with a lot of cap space (with 50+ roster members signed - a lot of other teams who appear to have cap space only have 38'ish roster members under contract), and some draft capital. There is a lot to be hopeful about. You ha

    Two 3rd round picks, 3 5th round picks. That's a ton of extra picks. Literally. Sure, they're not the best rounds to be picking from but Dorsey drafted starters for the Browns last year in the 4th and 5th rounds. He also drafted starters for the Chiefs (Hunt, Hill) in the 3rd and 5th rounds. It also gives us trade flexibility to perhaps move up a couple spots in the 1st or 2nd round. So yes, it's something to be excited about and it's certainly not a 'very normal amount of draft capital' by any stretch.

    Denzel Ward is a pro bowler in his rookie season at CB, possibly the 2nd hardest position in the entire NFL. Out of 130 qualifying CBs, PFF rated him: Passer rating allowed - 13th Yards per cover snap - 24th Defensive grade - 13th Coverage grade - 6th Of course he was a terrific pick. Honestly, you're over-thinking the hell out of this. COULD the Browns have traded down and still got Ward? Maybe. COULD the Browns have traded down and still got Mayfield? Maybe. COULD the Browns have traded down and still gotten Chubb? I mean you could make the same argument for mos

    Nick Chubb was a terrific pick. Baker Mayfield was a terrific pick. Denzel Ward was a terrific pick. Genard Avery is a starter and had a good rookie season. Antonio Callaway, while a rough start, finished out pretty strong and had a good rookie season. And it's not just the draft: Trading a 4th rounder for Jarvis Landry was a good move. Trading DeShone Kizer for Damarious Randall was a STEAL. Trading Carlos Hyde was a good move. Trading Josh Gordon turned out to be a good move. Signing Terrence Mitchell was a solid move (too bad he got injured). Signing Greg Robinson, who somewhat revived
  7. Wonderful summary, my friend. Should be a fun game!
  8. Lol at calling Joe Thomas a 'borderline' hall of famer. You're way too triggered, kid.
  9. Actually, if you do simple math, you'd understand it WAS catchable. The ball hit the ground 18 yards away from the clothesline, EXACTLY 2 seconds after the clothesline. The average NFL receiver runs a 4.5 in the 40 yard dash. Landry ran a 4.43 at his LSU pro day 5 years ago. It would have taken him 2.215 seconds to run 20 yards. So it would have taken Landry 1.9935 seconds to reach 18 yards (meaning he would have been there on time). This is not counting for the fact that you can be a few yards off and the ball still can be deemed 'catchable'. This is also not counting for the f
