The Browns chances of not only sweeping the Steelers this coming season but right now, barring FA and the draft roster-wise they should win their division with Baltimore close behind. Right?-wrong?

 

They have to get everyone together on the same page and working together. 

 

Lots of big egos there, though.

 

Very high potential.

On paper this team looks pretty tough, but maybe we should at least wait until the preseason before declaring them Super Bowl Champs. To be honest, I'm excited for the city of Cleveland and hope that the Browns do well. The can lose in the AFC Championship Game to the Colts!

This is pretty scary:

 

 

 

The bigger unknown is Kitchens.  But he excelled as a late year OC for the Browns after Jackson/Haley were fired.  HC is a new ballgame though. Many good/excellent OC/DC's flame out as a HC.

A couple of the Browns losses last year late in the season could have gone either way against good teams. Season tickets for the Browns has sold out! My dad and uncle were Browns fans so they are my second AFC team. Sweeping the now three legged Steelers would be a great moral booster and a split or better vs. Baltimore should be enough to give them the division. It will be interesting to watch and we will watch because the networks are loading them in to their schedule.

Browns have a lot of talent now and won 7 games from winning 0 the year before. It hinges on Mayfield IMO. If he has a Sophomore slump then they may go 8-8/7-9. If he gets better, I could see 10-6. 

Even if he does have a slump season. The talent alone from their skill positions is better than any other team out there and they should make up for it. Especially Kareem Hunt

We will see, a lot of people picked the Jags to win the SB last year and that was a major implosion. 

They aren’t Super Bowl contenders but they will be a wild card or win the afc north this year. Maybe 2 to 3 years from now with a better defense I’ll say so.

Oh I agree, I would put the Pats and Chiefs ahead of them easily and us and the Chargers ahead of them as well. I am not so sure that the Ravens and Steelers are better now though :dunno:. To me the Steelers look an 8-8 team on paper as of now.

Losing arguably the top receiver and a top 5 rb will hurt any offense. Plus they lose Jessie James

Media and fans jumping on that wagon way to early. Mayfield isn't Peyton Manning so that solid season he had means nothing next year.

 

There will be bad vibes from the world for them to fail. AND it's still Cleveland.... that's huge.. Lol

I guess we'll see, but I think they're definitely moving in the right direction.

 

 

 

I agree, they have the pieces.  But they are still spread out on the table.  How long before the puzzle can get put together... especially before some pieces get lost?  ;-)

Peyton Manning stunk his first year, not so Mayfield

I hear you, simply stating he's far from a slam dunk QB, ie luck, pm.

 

He can easily struggle in year two like most QBs do.

Hey...they might be all that. Could not he happier for Cleveland fans, however.... I remember the 2011 Eagles "dream team". 

 

"The Eagles were coming off three straight playoff seasons. They won the NFC East the year before with the No. 2 offense in the league. Now, with the veteran additions of cornerback Asomugha, defensive end Babin, running back Ronnie Brown, cornerback Rodgers-Cromartie, defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins, tight end Donald Lee, guard Evan Mathis, wide receiver Steve Smith and Young, they were loaded. Their roster featured 10 players who had made 25 Pro Bowl appearances between them."

    • ^This^   Another way to look at it is this:  considering the production that Ballard is getting out of his draft picks while they're still on their rookie contracts... why over-spend on re-signing anybody?   If Ballard can continue hitting on draft picks the way he has, then it's almost better to just keep accumulating draft picks, draft well, and let the young guys go out and make plays.   Let other teams over-spend on proven talent while Indy keeps providing an opportunity for young hungry players to prove their talent.   Save the money for slam-dunk moves like Buckner.
    • I bet you are 1000% wrong.   Nelson is the biggest name in the league at G, and it's not even close.  A "bad" Nelson (that gets called for ticky-tack holds that happen on every single NFL play) is still better than 90% of the guards in the NFL.   Your hot-take posts are getting very tiresome.  
    • They have contributed as much their rookie year as the entire group maybe by end of the season, but I doubt there's even a tiny chance of 2 all pros. Even 1 is a major stretch.  I am not sure we have any all pro's on the team since the most deserving one is Buckner (who I count as our first round pick in every way) has impact but no stats to wow anyone not intimately aware of his impact. If he misses this game we may painfully see how valuable.  But their collective impact has certainly added up. 4 starters and 2 solid special teamers in a so far playoff level team is quite a haul for any draft pick class in history.  It is at least adjacent to 2018, unless you don't count Buckner in any way.
    • Nothing against you and I like you as a poster but counting Ballard's 2017 season is a stretch. I realize he was the GM that year (1st year) but he didn't have the Coach he wanted and Luck was out for the year. We went 4-12 that year so his record is a bit skewed because of that. Others have posted the same thing about Ballard's record so you are not the only one and I just don't see how anyone can count that season legitimately. I pretty much go by 2018-this year when he hired Frank and his record would be 25-19 counting the playoffs. Is he the best GM in the league, probably not but he is good. He is responsible for drafting Nelson, Leonard, Mack, signing Houston, signing Rivers and trading for Buckner = great work there. Luck just retiring on the team and McDaniels dissing him even made his job that much harder. 
    • I am late to the party but it doesn't matter because I would've been 1-1 anyway. I had the Lions and Washington so it offsets     Here are my Sunday picks/Monday pick: Ravens 17 Steelers 24 Chargers 19 Bills 27 Titans 27 Colts 30 Panthers 20 Vikings 21 Browns 27 Jags 17 Giants 24 Bengals 10 Cards 27 Pats 23 Dolphins 99 Jets 0 (Fluke's original quote) Saints 24 Broncos 13 49ers 17 Rams 30 Chiefs 34 Bucs 24 Bears 17 Packers 27 Seahawks 31 Eagles 17
