So you prefer coming close then actually winning anything of substance? The Browns are like a less successful version of the early 90's Buffalo Bills. Close but no cigar.
I get it and I'm not belittling your choice.
And they came oh so close in 2016. Boy what a year that could have been for Cleveland. I was even rooting for them, but that's because as a Reds fan I couldn't stand seeing the Cubs win anything.
In all honesty it won't affect me either way if they change the name. But I do love their helmets, particularly the face. I hope that remains but of course it won't. They'll probably go with something lame and generic like all of the expansion teams of the last couple decades have done.
I have fond memories like that as well, only my paper was the Dayton Daily News. But I had the same tradition, look at all of the hs scores from the night before, maybe watch a little gameday, or maybe play a quick game of backyard football before college football starts at noon. As an adult the traditions changed, but if as an adult I ran my errands before noon, I still try to be back home at noon for college football. Love those Saturdays with nothing I have to get done and being able to watch from noon-late- really late if Hawaii has a game at midnight.
When the Buckeyes lose I ask myself why I invest so much emotion into it, because that Clemson loss felt so cruddy. But when one of my favorite teams wins a thriller I quickly realize why I keep watching.
Who knows maybe sports are a stupid distraction from life but don't we all need these? And if I enjoy watching, and the players I watch enjoy playing, what's so bad about that?
When it comes to whether it's the Right side or Left side of the line I am dyslexic. It's been explained to me countless times yet I always get confused by if you are viewing from the QB's view of from the D's view.
There must be a defect with the search engine on this site. I searched for "Diontae Johnson" and nothing came up. Forgive me for reposting this but I did use the search engine first! Not my fault!
They could have traded down to get him. Good player but not 33rd best.
Last one before actual draft for me. I like to have fun so I traded the 2021 1st to grab Simmons. According to the NFL.com draft profiles they think Simmons will be a regular pro bowler. The teams two glaring needs are QB and OLB, so to me giving up a future 1st (and some other picks obviously) to get a great talent in Simmons was a wise choice.
Just having fun would love a little feedback!
Round 1 Pick 1: Joe Burrow, QB, LSU (A+)
Round 1 Pick 19 (L.V.): Isaiah Simmons, OLB/ILB, Clemson (A+)
Round 3 Pick 31 (DEN): Alex Taylor, OT, SC State (A+)
Round 3 Pick 34 (N.E.): Adam Trautman, TE, Dayton (A+)
Round 4 Pick 12 (DEN): Damien Lewis, OG, LSU (A+)
Round 4 Pick 13 (ATL): K.J. Hill, WR, Ohio St. (A+)
Round 4 Pick 19 (N.E.): Anfernee Jennings, DE/OLB, Alabama (A+)
Round 5 Pick 17 (CHI): Joe Bachie, OLB/ILB, Michigan St. (A+)
Round 6 Pick 17 (CHI): Benito Jones, DT, Ole Miss (A+)
The A+ ratings are just what the board I used rated them.
""The problem is that I don't know that Miami feels strongly enough about Burrow compared to the other QBs to make any sort of drastic move."
Miami definitely wants to trade with the Bengals and it's definitely for one player.
It also seems like he finally letting Katie, Tobin, and Coach Zach run the show now. All of the F.A signings were not Browns usual methods.
