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,

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

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.

    • NFL.com's Profile   Draft Grade: 5.30 NFL BACKUP OR SPECIAL TEAMS POTENTIAL Draft Projection: Round 5 College: Mich St Position: S Height: 5-11 Weight: 213 40 Time: 4.52     BIO: Willis was named the Ann Arbor News Michigan High School Player of the Year in 2014 as a running back after he covered nearly 3,000 yards on the ground and scored 31 touchdowns. He didn't end up at Ann Arbor for college, signing with Sparty. Willis started 3 of 9 games played as a true freshman (11 tackles), but his season ended before the Big Ten Championship Game due to a broken foot. He started one game in 2016, making 30 tackles in 11 contests overall. An opening occurred in MSU's secondary for 2017, and Willis took advantage. He garnered honorable mention All-Big Ten honors that season, accumulating 71 tackles, 5.5 for loss, four sacks, two interceptions, and three pass breakups. He repeated his honorable mention all-conference performance as a senior, posting 84 tackles, two interceptions, and 10 pass breakups in 13 starts for the Spartans.   Overview: Team leader known for his leadership and work ethic, Willis has been a reliable performer with a good nose for the football. However, he's an average athlete with below-average speed who needs to keep plays in front of him, so finding a roster spot on the next level could be a challenge. His high football character and consistent effort level, give him a shot at finding work as a backup with special teams value .   Strengths: Praised for exceptional character Good size with compact build and desired play strength Plays with consistent motor and effort all game long Runs the alley with accurate map to the ball carrier Reliable and plays under control Reads quarterback's eyes for early indicators in coverage Sees the entire field from deep safety Handled some slot cover duties in sub-packages Good awareness from short zone and responds quickly to throws   Weaknesses: Below-average athlete lacking explosiveness Top-end speed is a concern Struggles to range over the top from deep zone Slow to open hips and sprint with early speed Tight strider with below-average burst to close Limited lateral agility to maintain man coverage Very modest ball production    
    • 1. Again that is how people view QBs rather that is fair or not   2. Im referring more from a talent perspective   3. Its more to justify Luck as a talent.
    • I like that there's evidently a clear plan for developing and using him, and I think that's true for everyone they added this year. We'll see how it plays out, but I expect that they'll be trying to put guys in position to excel, not trying to force them to do something they aren't good at.   I think this shows with the Funchess signing. Definitely not my favorite acquisition, and I wanted them to go in a different direction, but Warren Sharp posted splits showing how Funchess performed on certain routes, and compared it with how Luck produces when throwing to those routes. It seems like an ideal match for our offense, and I think the front office and coaching staff identified that together, and went out and got him. I don't think they'll ask him to be a downfield burner, I think they're going to use him on curls, outs, and maybe slants, and I think it's going to add a dimension to the offense, especially on big downs when defenses play tight man coverage.    If they took a similar approach with the players they drafted -- what's the plan for this guy on our team, and how do we develop his traits so that he can excel in this role? -- it will show in the way they use them right away. Tell, Campbell, Willis, Banogu... all have traits that can be tapped into right away.
    • So I'm a little confused now. Are you basing your views on the roster that the QB is playing with instead of the QB himself? I don't see how you can say the AFC championship game on only had "3 great players."    If you ask me has Luck done more with less then some other QB's then that answer is 100% yes. But your question is How do you view Andrew without a championship?       Not how Andrew Luck will be viewed because he doesn't have great teams around him.
    • 1. If my aunt had a set, she'd be my uncle.  Marino didn't win 6 so who cares?   2. The larger point is I am lost on your arm talent argument.  Who cares who had the best arm?  That is only one small component of what makes an elite level QB.  Greg Maddux is a HoF pitcher and he had not close to the velocity of Kyle Farnsworth, who can only get into the HoF if he bought a ticket.  In an NFL comparison, Joe Montana did not have near the arm that Marino or Elway did but he is clearly among the best QB's ever to play the game. 3. I don't care about the Colts 2014 roster.  I know who was on the team and I don't think they would have been a good match up for the 1970 Steelers. I am simply saying that you don't really know if it was the worst roster to make the AFCCG in history.  It's over an over the top argument simply made to prove a point you can't make otherwise.
