Also, rather than editing my dumbness, I meant White Stripes and thanks for not calling me out for it. Also, you're second point is exactly why we need to change. Everyone does it.

The thing is he had several injuries outside of the knee cap snapping so I am more than good with him resting to make sure he is 100%. We didn't have home court advantage last year and it didn't stop us from the Finals. Plus Mo Williams is an above average back up and Lebron handles quite a bit as it is. It sounds like January is the worst case scenario so maybe a Christmas Day come back?

A rebuilding team starting a 36 year old QB is literally the dumbest non Michigan football thing I can think of. I hate being a Browns fan sometimes...

I am disappointed that VT is known for an awesome band like Metallica and all we play is the shitty Black Stripes. I vote we just play Ride The Lighting every time our team comes out this year.

Every time I have watched Pauwwlllls show, he actually seems reasonable for the most part and has a smirking "these idiots are making me millions" look whenever cecil from podunkville calls in. It's like hes telling a joke his core audience doesn't get.

I agree, it is alot harder to look at last year and say "Wellll I think Team B was better, they just didn't get a chance to play" No more split titles makes it harder to have several top teams, especially when you return a chunk of talent. The other thing is there are an unusual amount of high caliber teams trotting out new QB's. The only ones I can think of off the top of my head that have returning QB's and also a legit title contender are Michigan State and TCU. Florida St., Alabama, Baylor, Oregon, Auburn, Georgia all will have new QB's to them. I guess if you want to count USC and Miss St as contenders you can but it seems like there are fewer sure fire QB's at title contenders this year. Last year, Marriotta made it so you could justify giving votes to Oregon etc.

Maybe he can just sign with a Mac school so he knows he won't have to worry about other QB's with comparable skills. It's one thing to move away from a school due to people like JT who are ahead of you and could be there for 2 more years. I am a little dumbfounded about leaving due to someone who wouldn't be on campus for another year and you would have one full year of a head start.

Its things like this that make be a Cleveland Pro Fan the worst thing ever. Another example is I can't even properly hate Pittsburgh because they(and Buffalo I believe) voted no at one point on the Browns approval to move. So there was a time in history where Pittsburghs owner cared more about Cleveland fans then Clevelands owner.

You can return the favor by approving another deal similar to Esmil Rodgers for Yanny Gomes and Mike Aviles. 

Comment 23 Aug 2015

Everything you said is accurate but I would still trade for him in a heartbeat for the Browns. We are the only rebuilding team in history to start an 80 year QB on purpose to start the year.

Comment 23 Aug 2015

The most important Big Ten games in the start of the year outside of ours is Wisconsin Bama and MSU and Oregon. These games we are talking about are win wins because they are both heavy dogs so any win of the 2 is a big positive(I prefer Minnesota obv). My realistic guess is Utah wins 31-18 and TCU wins 45-20. Minnesota lost some real talent and I don't think they out recruited it. That and TCU is a legit top 10 team. Michigan doesn't have much on offense but their defense could be pretty solid this year.

Comment 23 Aug 2015

My takeaways are we are an awesome team, however the simple things like ball control and shoring up some tackling would do wonders. As others have said, teams brought safeties up late against JT. Some of that can be attibruted to weather, some is play calling, some is his arm. Its hard to ignore how much better our offense was the last 3 games. I am sure some of it was focus and excitement of how important the games were but things were ugly at times against PSU/Michigan and parts of Indiana. We let up at the end of the Minnesota game. I think we were just trying to get out of there. JT looked great against Michigan State. I would love to see Cardale against some of the teams JT was able to feast on like IU, Rutgers etc. Dontre Wilson was underwhelming mostly due to ball control however some was injuries which can't be controlled. I don't think there is a wrong answer to the QB question but I would lean towards Cardale. Urbans offense can lead to QB injuries, when he won at Florida he used two in year 1 and Tebow was a tank in the other. We had to use two last year and I'm speculating that Cardale is less injury prone. Give me the tank with the cannon. Sorry for rambling.

As long as we beat VT and Michigan State beats Oregon in week 2 none of the others will matter too much. I do think Nebraska and Michigan have a shot at winning. Can't see Northwestern or Minnesota winning(they should have scheduled that later in the year when its freezing). Lastly, Wisconsin has played the last two SEC teams tough, winning one and losing another but both being close. If Wisky leaves the game with 0 turnovers they may have shot however Nick Saban struggles against spread QB's who can move. This type of game is right up his alley. I am guessing 31-17 Alabama.

Man, that was place was the truth back in the day. However like you said, they basically wrote the manual on how to not operate a site after (2004??)

Comment 20 Aug 2015

Lebron James was ridiculed for going on national tv(unprecedented), having a half hour special, dumping your home town fans and team on national tv and never giving anyone in the Cavs organization a call so we could not salvage that off season and set everything back 1 year on that alone. Yea totally the same. Plus one was a professional and the other an 18 year old kid.

I can watch with my wife(shes a die hard, yes I am lucky) or at a Buckeye bar with 100 hundred people. Both situations allow me to yell, swear, randomly hug someone and its acceptable. Anything in between is a no go.
