Lurker since TatGate in 2010 and then finally signed up for an account a few years later. I post rarely, but read the site several times a day even when football and basketball are in the offseason.

The next few drafts are also options for packaging all that capital, depending on one's assessment of the available QBs.  Some of the claims about what the Pats want in exchange for JG (e.g. multiple firsts) sound ludicrous when factoring in the uncertainties on him.

Shhh, that's the game plan!  Opposing defenders get into the backfield looking for the real quarterback, and by the time they realize he doesn't exist, the Browns will already be streaking down the field.

I could also picture the Browns FO doing the exact same thing to sportswriters - pretending that their phones are lighting up with offers for Osweiler in an attempt to gin up genuine interest.

If they drop RGIII, then the net monetary hit is closer to $7.5mil.  That doesn't seem like an unreasonable amount to pay to accumulate draft assets until one of them eventually results in a FQB (or several of them, in the event we improve enough beforehand to actually have to trade up in a draft to get the pick of the litter.)

Cricket is great, from the standpoint that any time I ever need a conversation topic with a person from anywhere in the British Commonwealth, I just ask them to explain cricket to me.  Every time, I can still honestly say that I don't understand it at all, and bam, you've got them talking energetically.

The linked article said:

Sources say the Browns' interest in Garoppolo is real and that they'll try to trade for him depending on how their draft evaluations go over the next five weeks or so.

All that means is that the Browns are considering Garoppolo, along with every other option.  Which didn't tell us anything we didn't know before reading it.

We do it because, as Conan O'Brien the Barbarian said (paraphrasing Ghengis Khan), the best thing in life is "to crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and hear the lamentations of their women."
