Comment 28 Feb 2020

Browns fan here, but wanted to chime in since we are all familiar with each others squad and have some of the same roster needs. 

QB: if you can get a 2nd, 3rd for Andy i would do that in a heartbeat! anything beyond that and i would just keep him. Have him start the season as QB1 and let Joey get acclimated to the pros a bit. Also, you guys will have a "new" LT in Jonah Williams and presumably 1-2 other new OL acquisitions, so while it takes time for them to gel you probably don't want JB in there taking shots right off the bat. 

RB: i've always liked the Mixon/Gio combo a lot, and with a stronger OL i think they can really shine as long as they stay healthy

WR: Tagging AJ is smart, but i hope for your sake if the trade deadline is close and you are not looking at a playoff spot you can at least cash in and trade him for a mid-round pick. Someone mentioned DPJ in round 3, but i think he will be gone by then. Boyd is good, Ross can help stretch the field, but after that the pickings are slim. Trust me, as a Browns fan i've known what it's like to have 1-2 good WR's and then nothing after that. this draft seems pretty deep at the mid-level WR spot so i think you'll find something there. Or in free agency

TE: Assuming you guys take Burrow, i wonder if you'll follow up with his TE from LSU (randy Moss' son, forgot his first name) since they have a good rapport. I think he is projected in the 4th-6th rounds so why not? 

OL: Both of us will be in the market for most of the same OL. I have been reading that Billy Price is getting closer to a bust label, which is not something i ever thought i would see. Hopefully he can turn it around for you guys!

Defense: just lumped this all together to save time, but i think you need either defensive end or maybe a stud LB at the top of round 2. Of course that pick might be very valuable if certain players fall out of the first round. you aren't trading the #1 pick unless you get an insane package, so this might be where you pick up some extra picks. If i recall correctly CB and Safety aren't bad spots for you guys and an upgraded pass rush will certainly help both areas!

I see you guys spending a fair amount in free agency and i would not be the least bit surprised if both of us are battling for 5-6 of the same guys. we'll both have to overpay a bit to get some people in, but with the right moves (and some luck) i think both of us can improve by 3-4 wins next year. 

It's certainly going to be an interesting free agency/draft period!

Good luck guys!

Browns fan here, so i think we can all commiserate together! haha

In my opinion, if the Bengals end up releasing him then i would not be the least bit surprised to see him end up in New England. they get some time to see him in practice for a season and can then determine if they want to offer him a 2-3 yr deal to be the backup to Brady. Of course that requires Brady to return, but if that happens and the Bengals release AD, then this move fits the Patriots MO to a T. 

 Right now the trade market is really low for a guy on his last year and making $18M per season. Some have mentioned that Cincy would need to eat a good chunk of salary in any move and i agree with that. If Cincy agrees to eating, say, $10-12M to get a 4th rounder then AD could be a competent insurance policy for any potential playoff team with a clear #1 and then not much in the back-up role.

That's a bummer. Really liked his presence on the field for the Crew. he played a role that will never really show up on the score sheet, but he was a valuable member of the squad. With this being his final year of his contract and with some of the comments he made about exploring other options, i'm not surprised that the team cashed in while his value was a still relatively high. 

As for the team, let's hope they have a better attack than last season. It was really hard to watch when we barely averaged a goal per game. 

Comment 13 Jan 2020

Crennel is now 73 and it's widely expected he will be announcing his retirement in the next few weeks. I don't know if Vrabel would give the DC job to Coombs, but you never know. Personally i am trying not to get too excited for Coombs to come back until it's a done deal, but man that will be awesome if he does!!!

Comment 29 Dec 2019

I wonder if we could get Kenny Guiton to come back in a similar type role? I have no idea how he is with recruiting, but I would bet he stays here for a long time. 

Comment 29 Dec 2019

At the end of the day, we shot ourselves in the foot too many times and never should have let the referee’s incompetence play a part. The video referee, Gerald Hodges (who incidentally lives and works near Knoxville TN) certainly didn’t do us any favors, but we certainly had plenty of opportunities for touchdowns and walked away with field goals. When you are playing the top tier teams you have to take advantage of every opportunity you get. Things didn’t go our way today, but it was still one hell of a season! 

Comment 27 Dec 2019

this team is so damn good! As an Arsenal supporter i think this will be the first team to join the invincibles club, but i think Pool will also take home the champions league title as well. 

If you are a Liverpool supporter, enjoy the hell out of this season. the good thing is that this train doesn't look to be slowing down anytime soon. the young kid they just signed will be a hell of a player and the funds you will have access to once Lallana and Shaq are gone will be wisely spent on youth. you set the blueprint on building a hell of a club while staying away from spending gobs of money like other teams. and if you guys were to somehow get Mbappe? yikes!!!

Comment 16 Dec 2019

Assuming Stroud commits, next year we would have Fields, Hoak, Miller, Stroud and then the walk on Vanatsky, right? it will be interesting to see who gets the 2nd team snaps in some of the blowouts considering we will be losing Fields and Hoak after the season.  

Comment 16 Dec 2019

It's a real shame he cannot seem to overcome those demons. When things failed to work for him in NE, i really felt it was only a matter of time before he spun out again, but i was rooting for Josh to make it this time. At this point, i hope for his sake (and his children if he does have kids) that he can keep trying to right the ship and find that peaceful place before it's too late. His NFL career is probably over, but right now that needs to be the last thing he is worried about. 

Comment 07 Dec 2019

It’s early, we are just getting the ugly plays out of the way. Everyone just needs to step back from the ledge, there’s still 3 1/2 quarters left! 

Comment 06 Dec 2019

Taylor by 29. Reason being is i think Wisky will load the box and force Fields into passing since he may be hobbled by the knee issue. JK has also carried quite a bit the last 2 weeks so Master Teague will probably get a few more carries. 

Comment 29 Nov 2019

I'm sure if the shoe was on the other foot you'd have some of our fans doing the same thing and over-analyzing stuff like this. it happens. At the end of the day a vast majority of all fan bases are normal, sane people who just want to see their team do well. We all have those groups of people who are either over the top (see Buck-i-guy) or those few people who root for the other team to get hurt, or even worse. Unfortunately its the latter that seem to make the headlines. 

As much as i dislike Michigan, Penn State, Bama, etc. I could never see myself rooting for one of those young men to get hurt. the game of football is awesome, but at the end of the day it's a game and everyone's health is so much more important.

Go Bucks!  

Comment 29 Nov 2019

i absolutely suck at betting and my gut says to take Michigan and the points, so hopefully that bodes well for us! I do think the first half will be an absolute dogfight and we could even be behind at the half, but overall we just have so much talent on both sides of the ball and it will start to show in the 2nd half. We have a brutal 3 game stretch to end this season between PSU, Mich and the Big Ten championship game, but there isn't another team on this planet that i'd want to have on my side. 

Go Bucks!

I have been debating doing that same thing since our promotional prices for DTV run out in January. Was debating between YouTube TV and Sling, but I hear more and more people rave about YouTube. 

Comment 16 Nov 2019

As a lifelong Clevelander and Tribe fan, it saddens me that the winter meeting are approaching because we all know how this one ends. LA, NY and possibly a few other teams are going to make offers for Lindor and we are going to move him. Love Frankie as a player, but recent history with the Dolan's show that he is going to be moved if we get a really good offer. There's not a chance in hell we sign Frankie to an extension, so they'll move him this season while the team has two seasons' worth of contract to dangle out there. 

Overall this team is good enough to hang in there for a playoff push without Frankie, but they really need everything to go well with the pitching staff and injuries. Assuming the Tribe gets 3-4 top prospects (that's our MO, right?) we then have to hope they invest the $16M salary that Frankie leaves. My guess is they will sign a platoon OF for $8-10M and then add a bullpen guy for $2-3M and maybe take a shot on a few guys who they hope have a little gas in the tank.  Not sure that;s enough, but i guess we'll see! If they move him and the team struggles near the trade deadline, you could see guys like Kluber, Hand, Oliver Perez and maybe even Santana getting moved. 

Either way, i am not looking forward to these winter meetings and it will be sad to see Frankie go.
