Legend of Luck

Zeitler to the Browns

Recommended Posts

Huge money for a guard.   The Brown's have a great o line on paper.  Still no qb,

12 mil/year was true...wow  31.5 guaranteed.

And now they have one of the best lines in football.

 

Thomas, Bitonio, Tretter, Zeitler, Pasztor

That is a nice but expensive line.  I would take it though.  They still need t o sign Pasztor though right?

Yep....but for how long....by the time they get a qb and groom him those guys will be long gone. I feel like this is in preparation of taking care of a young qb and getting the running game going. They have neglected their defense though.

I'm not sure. I think he's still under contract.

Yep, except that they don't know if the guy they protect is any good enough. :) 

 

Go on, take the money and run, woohoohoo...Steve Miller Band was right. :)

It could take a while. But, I just wish we could say that we had one of the best lines in the game with Andrew in his prime...

You never know.  They might trade for Jimmy G or draft a guy that pans out.  They have a mediocre RB and only one real threat at WR.  They need more offensive and defensive help than just a stout o-line.

They do still have a lot of picks in this draft

12 mil per year is a reach but the Browns could afford that. I think he was legitimately worth maybe 10 mil. Maybe we can snag T.J. Lang? I still think it's ridiculous our O-line has been below average for so many years straight.

Ballard needs to make a move and add someone. This team desperately needs to give Luck more time and be able to run the ball.

There is always one or two teams that completely destroys the realistic worth of positional players every Free Agency period.  Here is a perfect example of it, that is LT money and you spend it on a Guard?  Now Guard and Tackle prices will be driven higher because of this.  It is the never ending cycle of garbage teams way overspending to get top FA's, because they can't get them otherwise, and continuously redefining positional worth.  12 million for a Guard....geez!

Yep...they need LOTS of help....but if you are going to build somewhere than on the OL is as good as any. Any young qb would likely have the chance to have some extra time to sit in the pocket and hopefully a strong run game....give them time to develop. Money has to go somewhere I suppose....they were only like 100 million under the cap.

    • Hope we have a few of those this year vs TN!
    • This is the message board equivalent of a pick 6    
    • They really feel invincible at the highest level of sports, look at any professional sports team in the country, look at their franchise value compared to 10 years ago, even 5 years ago,the values not only go up they go way up, the sorriest franchise of the last 50 years the Clippers sold for over a billion a few years ago, the Clippers, a team you couldn't pay most people to sit and watch for two hours, are worth over a billion!!! Sports franchises can basically do whatever they want, they will never have any competition, so here are the options 1. quit cold turkey, and when people bring up sports, just say I used to watch it before.. or just avoid. drawback-if you had a past addiction, you will have to avoid going out to eat on Sunday, because almost every place has on the game. 2. become a casual fan who only watches if they make the Super Bowl (the I only watch for the halftime and commercials fan)drawback-this one works easier if you are female  3. put all the weekend energy into something else, lakes, crafts & woodwork, R&R, travel,outdoors, family, because there literally is nothing on the TV to watch on the weekends besides live sports. drawback-living in the northern part of the U.S.  4. go to radio/internet only, something I have done in the past, most of the changes will evaporate and it is just about the game& field position, drawbacks-instant replay 5. continue to be a fan, but let them know your opinion, and become an outspoken critic, let them know your displeasure constantly week after week, and when they say "go find another team", or "we don't want you as a fan", don't listen to them, and just articulate your displeasure. If enough people do this, they will listen they will have to, don't believe me, take a look at how many sports franchises change their logo and uniforms and a decade later they add a third jersey, and eventually the classic jersey is back. Brewers, Padres, Astros, Blue Jays, NY Giants, Chargers, Rams,Islanders, Sabres, Capitals, Coyotes, Pistons, 76ers, Warriors, etc drawback-people will avoid you like covid-19
    • I'd actually put Pittman ahead of Taylor due to the situations they are both coming into.
    • My over/under on Mahomes SB wins as a starter is 2.5. He still is young so it is possible he could win 3? Only 12 OB's have won 2 or more as a starter, winning 3 is really tough. Only Brady who has won 6, Bradshaw 4, Montana 4, and Aikman 3 have done so. Peyton didn't get #2 until his final season. Rodgers and Brees still only have 1 and look how great they have been. There are rarity's like Eli and Ben winning 2 but they had great defenses in doing so, Chiefs defense is ok but nowhere near great.
