I don't think you can really use the bad team in a bad city analogy and compare it to everyday life. KD, LBJ left good teams to form super teams. Most good players also do not reside in the city their team is and why would you when half the season is spent on the road. 

The NBA is no longer about building a team anymore.   It's about getting two or three good players on a team and winning it all. The Cavs should have had two championships if Love, Irving were not hurt the first GS series. Once GS lost they went out and got KD to beat the Cavs this year.Now its the Cavs looking for someone to beat GS and KD.

The NBA regular season has become irrelevant now.

In order for Jones to have a chance he needs to find an NFL team that will actually develop QBs out of CFB.... Which you do not find anymore or go to the CFL. Several of those starters still had to beat out people that were on the team to earn the chance to develop and in Moon's case he went to the CFL.

I like Tyvis, but he's been waived twice. The non QBs on that list were never cut by the teams that picked them up. Most would agree he left OSU too early. I think his future is on special teams. The Seahawks and Gregg Williams are a pretty good judge of defensive talent and would have kept him if he can be an impact. I know in Indy he's behind Geathers and Butler and I am sure they are hoping Hooker has FS locked down. Which is why if he's starting things are not going according to plan for Indy

I believe Smith served on the NCAA committee which gave him some insight.  Prior to the ban, no other team had been banned for the same infractions OSU had. So basically going off previous history, OSU got screwed by the NCAA.

Comment 08 Jun 2017

Outside of LeBron and Irving, the rest of the team is wildly inconsistent. Since the warriors made the move to get Durant in order to beat the Cavs, the Cavs need to make the similar move this offseason to counter them or it's going to be the same outcome in next years finals.

TP was definitely not worth the 52 million over 4 years, the Browns gave him the best offer and he walked. I fully expect the 2nd year WRs to be better after a year of development much like TP developed from yr 1 to yr 2

Comment 01 May 2017

Nice to see Hue have the same feeling most of us did about passing on Hooker. In the end with a weak QB class the extra pick may give the Browns an edge to trade up for the franchise QB if Kizer's development is not moving along fast enough. If Williams believes he can turn Peppers into very good NFL safety the gamble is worth it.

Comment 30 Apr 2017

Says the guy that literally said the Browns did nothing to improve their team. That's the definition of talking out your ass along with the majority y of you follow up posts. If you think I'm trolling then so be it. I am only calling you out for the dumb ass comments that you're trying desperately to pass off as fact. You've really just shown how ignorant you are with the TP and Mack comments. I'm all for opinions, but what you said was pretty much ridiculous made up statements. Don't get butt hurt because I actually know what the hell is going on. Have fun keyboard warrior 

Comment 30 Apr 2017

They had Njoku projected to go to the steelers in rd 1. I believe they gave up a 4th rounder for him. If anything they probably should have gone Njoku at 25 and kept 33. As always during the draft word gets out that another team wants someone you had targeted and you reach a bit. I'd call it a wash. Keeping Barnidge would have been fine, I'm not going to damn them for releasing him if their goal is to get him as many reps so that when the team is that 1 player away or so he's fully developed 

Comment 30 Apr 2017

Dak is a lot better because he has the best OL and had Elliott to carry the load. He is good in that he wasn't asked to do too much. I love Cardale, but good lord your homerism is beyond belief. He didn't even come close to being as good as Kessler was last season and Kessler was thrown into the starting job. Buffalo also drafted a QB in Peterman that could challenge Cardale. I'm not calling Kizer a great QB, but he's definitely closer to starting than Cardale is with the same physical abilities. The Browns already got a safety and picked up a CB in the 4th and are actually fine at LB. let me guess because they played at ND or Michigan it's a bad pick. Every draft analyst said Kizer at 52 was a great pick. Do you work for ESPN or NFL network? Or is your analysis primarily rooted in being semi drunk on your couch watching CFB?

Comment 30 Apr 2017

The Browns have Seth Devalve at TE as well, he looked pretty good in limited action. What exactly is Barnidge going to develop him into if they have routes developed that he can't even get open in. Trust me I don't hate the guy, but keeping a player because you like him doesn't improve the position when you're building a team. Btw FWIW Derek Anderson was a pro bowl QB, Barnidge having 1 really good season doesn't make him the best at the position. I remember when everyone bitched and moaned when Cameron walked, he never came close to having the same production when he left. If you're going to rely on a TE so much I'd rather roll the dice on a guy that can stretch the field and hit a home run.

Comment 30 Apr 2017

You've already stated that you're not a Browns fan, so I'm chalking this up to the standard I know more than  the front office posts. The Browns did not walk into the draft without secondary players, they have Kindred and Powell at safety, Jamar Taylor at CB who had a good year. The only liability is Haden and as you said in a deep CB draft picked Wilson Rd 4. Once again the Browns had the worst run D and pass rush in the league. They addressed that with Garrett and the 3rd round DT and maybe Brantley. Even if you think Peppers is incapable of learning coverages which is ridiculous. He still strong against the run. Forcing QBs in 3rd and long and actually have a pass rush will greatly benefit what you believe is a bad secondary.

Comment 30 Apr 2017

Are you really trying to suggest that Jones is less than a project than Kizer? I'm trying to understand why you believe Dak would have been a great pick for the Browns last year. Don't get me wrong, I think Dak is fantastic but throw him on the Browns and you're commenting how we wasted a pick on Dak because we had no OL.  

Comment 30 Apr 2017

The biggest problem with their pass D was the fact the opposing QB had all day to throw. You can have Joe Haden in his prime and he's not going to cover anyone if the QB has all day. You can however help your secondary by forcing the QB to make mistakes which requires pressure. 

Comment 30 Apr 2017

I like Barnidge, but he was never good in his 7 seasons prior to the Browns. His best season was due to being the safety valve more than a great TE. He's going on 32 and you can already tell he's lost a step last season and was not as impactful. The NFL is a business, holding on to a player that is not going to get better with age is not going improve the team. Njoku adds a mismatch with speed and size that Barnidge cannot provide.
