I'm sure it was cost cutting, but from what I've heard from a few Browns fans, had a lot to do with performance as well. Overall, just very poor value, or bang for buck. His PFF rating and PR allowed aren't very good. Hoping he fits better in our C2. Like I said in an earlier post, he'll likely be Moore's back up. If the guy is starting at CB1 or CB2, I think we have major injury problems.
Nobody on Earth knows what Chad Kelly can do but i put my repetition on the line and suggest that we would’ve had a better shot at beating the Dolphins & Steelers than with Hoyer! What makes me so darn mad is the personnel in this Org get paid millions to make these decisions, to watch film in the wee hrs of the night, only to backfire!! If nothing else, in these two games you find out what you got with CK but instead we got two pivotal losses after a 5-2 record!
You know, Polian was infamous for this tactic, you (the general you, not you in particular) would read about how Polian and the Colts were looking at such and such a player and they were going to visit, etc. but all along they were looking at and talking to a different player from that school.
And Irsay, himself, said it was that time a year when you start putting out smokescreens.
