Cleveland Browns Paper Tigers

Recommended Posts

I don’t understand the shameful need to bash the Browns around here. It’s Kitchens. The Colts were 1 bad move away from being in this shape after their quarterback did what everybody is acting like the Browns quarterback should do. The Colts have a good coach though and while it hasn’t been perfect it’s been as good as possible which is basically the coach’s job to make happen...the best possible. Kitchen hasn’t done that, hasn’t even gotten on the track to do that. He’s a trainwreck. Great guy but trainwreck as a coach which is a shame because they’re talented and they haven’t quit.

We have Jacoby Brissett, he isn't a quitter and I happen to love the guy. He is a leader, a guy that is smart. We are in good hands trust me :thmup: Celebrate Indianapolis Colts GIF by SportsManias

maybe, but I think it was pretty obvious that the Browns were trying to swing for the fences with their obscenely high paid FAs and trade moves they made. Most were crowning them as the next Superbowl champs when a lot of us here were simply saying to pump the brakes on that.  Mayfield and Kitchens have both seemed to crack under the intense pressure all those moves put the team under.

Browns get real football people at the top in the front office, and splurged in FA.  But many remember the Philly 'Dream Team' fiasco of 2011; and the potential fallacy of Free Agency buying a championship-

Kitchens as HC was the X factor and it seems to have veered off course. So it remains today...  Browns will be the Browns.

FA pieces, sure, every team does it.  Loading up on a few 'stars'?

 

The point is it has failed as often as it has worked, so no guarantees. And probably not a long term solution (egos, salary/cap, etc...)

Neither is Luck and neither is Mayfield. And you weren’t that confident when you first learned Brissett was your start quarterback don’t even.

My college football team is 2xs as many missed kicks as that from being National Champions all within the same 10 years. To bad that’s not how it works and to bad you have the shameful need to pretend this isn’t what you predicted the whole time.

Guys, you can't quote BloodyChamp and disagree with him.

 

He just gets mad and insults you.

 

He doesn't know how to have a civil conversation with someone that disagrees with him, which is sad because that's kind of the point of this forum...

    • My recent mock heavily influenced by Senior Bowl practices:   13 Justin Herbert, QB Oregon 34 Raekwon Davis , IDL Alabama 44 Jonathan Greenard , EDGE Florida 75  Denzel Mims, WR Baylor 112 Trey Adams , OT Washington 142 Jeremy Chinn , S Southern Illinois 173 Naquan Jones , IDL Michigan State 190 Binjimen Victor , WR Ohio State 204 Joey Magnifico , TE Memphis
    • Just a quick search about PM in 1998.  Just saying PMs arm strength was questioned during the process, rightly or wrongly, by media pundits creating a "popular belief" that gets shot down.   All the panelists except Shanahan and Toledo, both of whom did extensive analyses of their own videos of Manning and Leaf before being interviewed, watched SI-provided game tapes. The group shot down the popular belief that Manning can't throw the deep ball. Indeed, the experts extolled Manning for making every throw with precision.   And the lack of rotation and a wobbly pass was thought to be a contributor to Manning's lack of production in outdoor games.  Whether its true or not, is not the point, its what the media pundits would say. 
    • Ballard basically said Cain was not putting the work in that he needed and was asked to do.   He defiantly wants Funchess back. Sounds like it is up to Devin.
    • here is from your article on Manning       And on Luck, does not have top level arm strength.  Again, not top level arm strength is not the same as inadequate arm strength.   Lastly, thanks for posting the articles. definitely showed me things I didn't remember.  But I did want to say, just because the draft "experts" say something does not make it true.
