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.)
They're going to hire someone from the KISS army to take her place:
Seems like Antarctica is doing all the work.
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.
This is him working. His work calendar is 364 days of desperate attention-seeking, followed by getting his butt kicked in the last game in November. Repeat.
Ah, Harbwaaa. Always so desperate to divert the public eye from more germane considerations:
He is a man.
He's more of a boy. After all, if a guy's behavior is indistinguishable from a boy on the playground, then he's not a man yet, no matter how old he is. I see it all the time.
I knew a Bucs Fan who always talked about how much he wanted Jameis to get a career-ending injury so that he could root for his team again without feeling ashamed. (No, he didn't change his icon.)
If he'd committed when he was 12 years old, this wouldn't have happened.
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.
I thought that was going to Kirk Ferentz again.
Try it and see
Just like his eponymous book says: "I will not cause pain without allowing something new to be born."
The POTY award doesn't go by Highlander rules?
Haha, it took me a moment. Maybe someone can add in an OSU helmet, a football, and defenders diving and hitting nothing but air as he moves.
I know, I was wondering when someone was going to slip on all the rectal effluent I assumed would be covering the floor.
Eric Dickerson is in on 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."
