Bikes would soon be the only practical way to get around given there wouldn't be any good gasoline left after about 18 months.  We've seen 1 baby already carried to term and grow into a toddler during the course of the show, so anyone still driving around in a car is complete BS.

Nice to see the writers give another one of their characters a lobotomy on screen. So Sasha feels that infiltrating the Saviors base is a better plan than taking him out with the sniper rifle she has?  Really?  Sometimes its amazing they try to make us believe these characters would survive this long.  We may actually have Star Trek to thank for that brilliant piece of writing though.

Would def be a Browns move drafting Gerbil at 12, hopefully this new regime isn't that clueless.

Browns telling other teams that they will also eat "at least half" of the $16M due to Osweiler this year to facilitate the trade...

Teams already have reached out to Browns to inquire about Brock Osweiler's availability, per team sources.

Comment 09 Mar 2017

Browns seem to be gearing up for a trade with all these picks, and JG is the popular target.  What if its Cousins though?  Washington has no QB if they trade him, so Osweiler may be part of that deal.  Cousins has requested a trade, so Snyder doesn't have a lot of leverage right now either.  Could be interesting.

Comment 09 Mar 2017

The more I read about it, the more interesting it becomes.  Rumors that they will trade him again, but not sure how likely that is.  Worst case they just bought a 2018 2nd Round pick though, so maybe they are stocking ammo to get a real QB?

Comment 09 Mar 2017

Guess I should have been patient, they've been making some great moves today.  Now if they can sign Pryor I will slap myself for using the word inept.

Former Bengals G Kevin Zeitler expects to sign with Cleveland, per sources. Big day for Browns O line. Highest paid guard in NFL history.

Comment 09 Mar 2017

People are excited about the prospect of Brady to Cooks up here, but that Defense is going to have a lot of question marks this season.  They stand to lose Collins, Butler, Long and Ryan, that's a big hit.  Adding Gilmore was a good move, but Bill has to have some others lined up.

Comment 09 Mar 2017

Browns get Bitonio signed to an extension and are close to signing Tretter, I really like these moves.  Would love to see them add Zeitler to this mix too.

Comment 09 Mar 2017

I think Britt would be a Slot Option, he'd be a good compliment to Pryor if they bring him back (Please let that happen). 

Comment 09 Mar 2017

Their Personnel decisions to date have been pretty bad overall.

- They let Scwartz, Mack and Gipson walk last offseason and had no real plan in place to replace any of them.

- They cut Gabriel and kept Hawkins, only to turn around and cut Hawkins after the season.

- Coleman and Ogbah in the first 2 rounds last year when they could have had Bosa and someone like Thomas.  So far the only payoff for that downgrade has been Shon Coleman.  If they bust on the 12th pick this year then that trade will be worse than passing on Julio.  They will have to hit a Grand Slam at 12 to bridge the gap.

The only positive move they've made so far is Collins, which was a great move but not enough to offset the bad ones to date.

They have, imo, done a great job with the staff, I'm a big Jackson/Williams fan.

This offseason has to be make or break for the Harvard boys though, and losing Pryor would be a huge step in the wrong direction.

Comment 08 Mar 2017

Brady is 40, if Bill really thought Jimmy was capable of being the heir he wouldn't be going anywhere. 

Comment 08 Mar 2017

Sometimes people like James Franklin get in their ear and convince them they are too good for that.  Its a shame really, they buy into negative recruiting like that then get stuck in a mediocre program for 4 years.  Hopefully for the recruit's sake, they wake up and see through that BS before NSD.

Comment 04 Mar 2017

If they let Pryor go they won't be worth watching on tv, live should be out of the question.  This FO can't just let their young talent leave every year.

Comment 01 Mar 2017

What happened to those ratings during the first half of the season?  Seems a lot of people lost interest in the show after they took it in that direction.

As for Neegan, since when does the tyranny of evil men look like a 50's greaser who makes bad dad jokes during 90% of his screen time?  The Governor, Shane, the Terminus Cannibals and Daryl's road group didn't act cheesy like that, were they just not "Evil"?

None of the other seasons seemed to have these problems, it wasn't until last season when they started setting up their new Clown Bad Guy that the show quality started to decline.  Hopefully the payoff is worth this buildup, and the storytelling style that started when Glenn fell off the dumpster last season does a 180 and backs away from the ramp leading over the shark.  The show used to be one of the best, seeing it in this state is sad.

Also for the record, my phone sits in my work bag while I'm in the office so usually from 8-6 on weekdays unless there is something going on that I'm waiting for a call/text about.

Comment 28 Feb 2017

Decided to watch the 3 episodes of the 2nd half last night, still pretty meh but the fact that Neegan was only in 1 of them is an improvement.  He's just terribly written and acted, any time he's on screen its cringe worthy.  Add that they are drawing this whole conflict out to the point that in 3 episodes, nothing really happened and the show is becoming a parody of what it once was.  It will be amusing to see how they wrap up this Saviors story because they've kind of painted themselves into a corner with this season's storytelling style.  At the rate its moving, the conflict won't happen until the very end of the season.  So is the fight over in 1 episode?  Would be pretty lame to cram that all into 1, but the other option is to wait to conclude it next season.  Given the audience reaction to last season's finale, that could be show suicide.  Best thing they can do for the show is ditch this Neegan experiment, he's killing the show whenever he's on screen.
