As I think about it, the Browns under three owners have not drafted well since that brain fart of taking Mike Junkin. You millennials need to "google him" to read about his long illustrious career from Duke. Not Duke now, Duke back then. There have been way too many head scratchers ever sinc then.
Urban Meyer said
I love him
Not when they have a political agenda. And they do. Then, what lands in their lap matters not.
Good for him.
I am part of the group that says they haven't done this good since coming back, even though it is a bit of a mixed bag.
The best two teams the last two years are Ohio State and Alabama. They had a combined 19 players drafted, the Browns took 0. Clemson had 9, the Browns took 0. UCLA was stacked with talent and had 8 drafted. The Browns took their WR who was the most prolific receiver in Bruin history. Beating this dead horse won't help, but I will do it anyway.
Well, previous management didn't find the need to find WR knowing the Browns have none. Including the junkie.
I always thought it was more about paying less for players
Nah, that is what they have been doing since 1999.And the Tribe has done it since the Jacobs to Dolan sale.
I hope he continues to make GMs look dumber than they are by skipping on slobs available at the draft.
He is Kirk Herbsreit's favorite player not from the SEC.
1 of the 2 Michigan draft picks is from Ohio. The other grew up next to Wayne and Garth. Yes, I checked knowing they have to outsource in the state of hotdog water.
Ohio State lost one game, in a monsoon, when Elliott spent a few days during the week in the hospital for an illness. It's not like Ohio State lost 4-5 games last year. I still think they were one of the best, if not the best, teams in the country.
Winning a championship is very difficult. Repeating is brutal. Every player on that team mentioned after the loss to MSU that they could finally play loose and just play football. They dominated very good Michigan and Notre Dame teams after that loss. Urban is a very good coach and an excellent recruiter.
He is 28-2 over the last 2 years with those players. Overrated nah.
This. That game they lost last year was fluky. Neither team could move the ball in those conditions and it just came down to the one botched punt return back in OSU's own territory. I could've easily seen them winning it all again this year if they were selected for the playoff. His career record at OSU is insane. 50-4 overall and 31-1 in the conference. I'd say that sounds like a good coach. That being said I think he should've stuck with Cardale at QB rather than Barrett.
yeah, he only wins everywhere, and at 12-1 last year he's really not that good
Did he have a better roster of players at Bowling Green and Utah?
Is OP serious? tOSU has lost 4 games in the last 4 seasons. 2 of those seasons they went undefeated and won a National Championship.
This. As a huge Iowa fan and alum, I can't believe Im doing this but Im going to defend Urban.
He has won everywhere he has coached. You can't fault a coach for having a talented roster to work with. He played a major part in developing that roster. He didn't have the name brand or talent-filled roster at BG or Utah, yet managed to win. I really think his best coaching job was the year he took over OSU and went 12-0 with a team surrounded by turmoil and not eligible for the post season....
Meyer: 3 National Championships. Overrated? no
Bring that shit to me
And I don't know anything about Louis Ricardo. I will have to look him up.
Yeah, that was dumb.
They needed skill players desperately the last 3 years. Remember the idiot last year?
The Browns were 32nd against the run. That stops right now
As non player Danny Shelton walked across the screen. Know what they were against the run this last season? 32 again. System problems can make other areas look bad that aren't that bad. Like sending your defense right back out after 3 plays and a punt. So far, aside from skipping Bosa at 2, or Perry to start round 4, it is better.
So......San Diego's defense has gotten better this weekend.
They were left out so Alabama could win. Don't think for one second that a loss to Texas is some how different than losing in a game where the coaches decide the best play is QB run when they are crashing down, every down, to a team with a huge chip on their shoulder.
The playoff (4 best) should have been 1. Ohio State, 2 Alabama, 3 Clemson, Michigan State
Although Michigan State clearly blew their wad in Ohio Stadium.
I think I saw Zeke wearing "21" when he showed up in Dallas. I assume that is going to be his number.
Spin move! Miller! Headed to the endzone!
It won't attain the legend of Holy Buckeye, but damn good any way. Thanks, Fowler.
I like reading the draft grades from "experts" that put Zeke in Dallas a s "D". Then I can confirm he has an agenda of some sort (why?). Because they can't possibly think that.
There isn't any video yet that I see and the NFL.com page shows Mayock's analysis. No commentary transcript yet.
39 TD 5 INT as a Jr. 29 TD 7 INT as a Sr. 3800 and 3500. with multiple coaches, including a drunk. He isn't 6'4" like Goff, but that is about it.
He isn't 6'4" like Goff. That is about the only draw back.
Eisen looked at Meyer and laughingly said " You're just showing off now." I love it.
