The Cleveland Browns Need A Major Makeover...

If they are going to rebuild, they need to rebuild their image too.

They are a team who are called the Browns, wear orange and black or white, and have a dog as a mascot?

What do you think they should do? I would start off by renaming the team...Im not bashing on the team.

Its just a thought, what do you think:?

The name comes from former owner Paul Brown, who also strongly influenced the Bengals. I think that if there was any interest in the changes you are talking about, they would have done it when the old Browns moved - instead of going to lengths to retain the identity, and then assigning it to an expansion team. This is what they've been since WWII.

They certainly don't have the most exiting livalry in the league, but it's their's. I get my back up when people start talking about changing the Colts uniforms. I can't imagine that Cleveland fans want to hear it either.

lol

But really they wouldn't change like that. They are an old classic of an organization. You have to respect a team called the Browns, who wears orange, and plays in a place called 'The Dogpound'.

They dont even have anything historic in their history of football, it shouldnt be hard to change the name of the team or a makeover. Colts obviously had a history with Johnny Unitas and Peyton, that wouldnt make sense today to give the team a new name

They need to rebuild the team, not the uniforms. They have to find some solid offensive players. Their defense is alright, led by guys like Phil Taylor and Joe Haden, but their offense is really lacking weapons

who is Phil Taylor and Joe Haden?

All i can think about when i think of the Browns are Joe Thomas and Brady Quinn (Who never succeeded...)

They could move to Baltimore. That worked out pretty well for the old Browns.......except for the wearing purple part.

okay let me get this straight. The browns are a team with a dog mascot who wears orange and white or black and used to wear purple? Was the person blind or color blind?

You might want to research this a little bit further. IE: Does the name Jim Brown mean anything to you? How about Otto Graham? Two of the most historically important and transformational players ever to play the game - who played for some terrific teams.

I'm not clear on why this is so important to you, but if you are looking for an utterly pointless argument on this topic I suggest that you join a Browns board. Perhaps when you come back, what's left of you will have greater respect for tradition.

Joe Haden is their 2nd year CB.

Phillip Taylor is their rookie DT.

Also, another good player on Defense is veteran Scott Fujita, a 10 year LB that they picked up from New Orleans a few years back.

D'Qwell Jackson and Chris Gocong are each LB's in their 6th season and piled up 228 tackles between them last year.

Hope that helps!

Their defense has a lot of potential and could be a top 10 defense. They have Sheard, Rubin on the line, they have a good linebacking core, and Joe Haden + Ward in the secondary.

Their offensive line is getting better as they have 2 pro bowlers in Mack + Thomas, and they're working on the right side of the line. Their running back may not stay, but if he does, they're good there. RG3 should be coming to town and their receiving core could use some, but it's one good signing away from becoming a good core.

They don't need a major makeover, but in a couple of years I could see them fighting for a playoff spot.

    • When I say talent I mean actual difference makers, not JAGs.    I wasn’t talking about Steichen. I was talking about the new DL coach and Secondary coach as that was the conversation.    Why do you say I’m shovelling worry, when our pass rush has been subpar for years and our secondary has been aswell? Do think it’s unreasonable to question whether any of the talent, the coaching or the GM is getting it done at this point?   These things have been topics since I started posting here and it still is. I don’t understand how you don’t think that’s a concern. 
    • I think if Ballard doesn't add talent, it can be fairly interpreted as if Ballard doesn't add enough talent. The NFL Draft kinda forces every GM to add talent, doesn't it?    Aren't you the guy who thought that at that end of last offseason Ballard had left such obvious holes in the roster that it was apparent the team was tanking? 
    • I was thinking about Moe Allie Cox’s cap situation.  He currently counts at almost $6m against the cap.  PFF thinks he could be a cap casualty.  With Ogletree’s spot on the team up in the air and Woods situation also not the most assuring I was thinking the Colts might ask him to take a pay cut and keep him.  He might be receptive to that instead of going out in the market and taking a lesser amount with a different team.  He has certainly made contributions in the red zone and as a blocking tight end.  Taking a pay cut might make sense all the way around.  Just a thought that I think has merit.
    • I agree. Passsing on Bowers is wild. But he went to the Bengals which tells me DJ forced a pick. Sometimes with mock drafts, people love a player and team fit so much that they have players slip way past what is feasible. People have been clamoring for the Bengals to draft a TE for years so Bowers would be a dream scenario for that crowd that thinks that.
    • The only thing that it changed was that Kelce got more looks and went from 1 catch for 1 yard before the half to 9 catches for 92 yards the rest of the way.     Forgotten is their LB play. Their LBs Nick Bolton and Willie Gay are good blitzers and stay with boot legs and rollouts well enough that Purdy with pressure in his face can barely get 5 yards off his throw after the pass catcher gets tackled. When 1-on-1 Purdy once outran Nick Bolton for a horse collar penalty, so Spags changed it to a safety Reid instead of putting an LB on Purdy realizing Purdy has got some wheels. You couldn't help but notice the quick adjustment. Plus, the angles an OLB takes also matter. Sam Hubbard of the Bengals on the surface may not be fast in a straight line but he takes very good angles and hence Lou Anurumo used that DE/OLB as a Mahomes spy and played contain in that 2021 AFCCG where the Bengals beat the Chiefs.   The biggest difference now is that Mahomes and The Chiefs are dinking and dunking like Brady and The Patriots and it is not a deep to shallow level passing game like before, more shallow to deep levels that gives DCs fits because Mahomes' decision making, since he was forced to grow after Tyreek Hill left, has improved. It doesn't help he has a D like the Patriots in those early SB years either.
