If the Vikings lose this game on Sunday then fire that entire coaching staff.

All. Of. Them.

Question:  you are in a suicide league.  Who is more likely to win their game, the 49ers over the Colts or the Vikings over the Browns.  49ers and Vikings are home.  Before the trade, the 49ers were 10/10.5 favorites.  I dunno what the Vikings were, but i know the Vikings were giving less than 7 points.

I checked today and the 49ers are still in double-digits and Vikings -6/ -6.5.

/Just want to know between these two games who you would pick.  Already have Seahawks and Broncos for my other two suicide entries.  I already used up the Saints and Pats.

I'd probably say the Broncos vs. the Raiders is an even better bet. The Seahawks are due for a bit of a letdown game after last week, and who knows: the Jaguars might sign Tebow before Sunday.

Yeah I'd pick the Vikings too. The Browns are starting their 3rd string QB on Sunday and are rumored to be trying to sign Willis McGahee to a one year contract at RB.  With the way the right side of the OL has been playing though, they could put Adrian Petersen and Peyton Manning in that offense and still lose against nearly anyone.

OdradekRex: All Cleveland Fans should bring white flags to wave at the stadium to commemorate the early surrender of the season.


They have to if they want a shot at Johnny Manziel. Otherwise, there's no way he'd be left at the 4th pick that they could possibly earn, before trading it away for the 3rd and giving up their later round picks.

The best part about this is how dumb it was for both teams.

Colts: Irsay obviously wants to be the next Jerry Jones, he's desperate for attention. Did you see his tweets about this? Awful damn excited about trading a mid first round pick for a power runner with injury issues. Richardson doesn't make them noticeably better than the Texans, so they basically traded a first round pick for a RB that...puts them in position to fight for a Wildcard. Which is where they were before giving up a pick. But hey "SHOCK and AWE" right Irsay? Next week: Irsay demands on Twitter the Colts block for Trent Richardson.

Browns: I mean it's the Browns do I really need to say more? No, but I will anyway. First, say this out loud "Let's trade the #3 overall pick for a mid first round pick 2 years from now"...does that even sound like it makes sense? And that's not even counting the picks they traded to get the third pick. Just a stupid move from a pure value standpoint.

Second, you're basically forfeiting the season after two weeks. Richardson, for all that he was worth (not much really) was STILL their best offensive skill player. And you dump him two games in, two games you honestly could have won. Now they've dumped their best offensive skill player, and they're starting their 3rd freaking string QB. Is LeBron in the draft this year? Is it really not a little sad to be tanking already? Even if the fans can rationalize it (and oh get ready for the rationalizations...) try asking the veterans in the lockerroom how they feel about trading their best offensive player and starting a 3rd string QB.

The Browns weren't great with Richardson. But they play in the worst division in the NFL. They play the Bills and Jets this year. 8 wins was out of the question for them? They didn't think it was possible, already, they could win 8 games? Don't let people who don't know shiat about the Browns convince you they were a lost cause already. They've got a potentially top 10 NFL defense. They could have made a run at it with a power offense (hell put Campbell in and you've got a proven game manager) and that D, especially in that division.

Or you know this. Tank the season. After two games.

The best thing about this is when they drafted Trent Richardson, I said in the Fark thread how bad of a move it was due to trading away draft picks to move one spot, Richardson having injuries, them not having a solid line for him, etc. and someone on here lost their shiat and telling me how stupid I was and how Cleveland would be a playoff contender in 2 years and that Richardson was the best draft pick they'd made in 5 years.

Based off of what exactly? The first two games?  The Browns still suck and its likely some of the teams are going to have a down year but 2 of the last 5 superbowl winndes have come from the division - including last year.  Ignoring the Browns most people would have said its the toughest division in the NFL.

Nobody else was going to trade up.  The Vikings made up offers to get the picks from Cleveland; they didn't want to trade down to much later in the first round.
 
2013-09-19 10:14:07 AM  
Just read that nobody from the Browns organization thought it prudent to inform Richardson that he had been traded.  Says he heard about it after one of his buddies called him on the phone and asked.  Had to turn on the radio to hear the news.

2013-09-19 10:21:19 AM  
The Bucs were talking trade with the Vikings last year to grab Richardson; that's why the Browns emptied the bank to move up one spot to get him first. While I didn't have a big problem with the move (they needed a good RB), the second first round pick they made for Weeden made no sense at all. I would have been thrilled if they had selected a big run blocking guard, or another LB or CB with that pick, but nooo, they go after an overaged QB with performance issues, then throw him in as a starter immediately.

With their luck, the Browns will probably win 1 or 2 games despite the weak offense this year, meaning their chance to get the #1 pick in next year's draft will be minimal unless they once again trade multiple high level picks to move up. It wouldn't surprise me if they traded other players before the deadline either.

Well, at least they are trading while the stock is high.  That is the only bright spot I can find in this.  Of course, the Colts will probably go on a tear and Richardson will rush for 250 yards a 3 TD's in the Super Bowl this year...

Tampa Bay made a similar offer to Cleveland.  When Cleveland made the trade instead, they took Doug Martin instead of getting Richardson.  Hilariously, that helped TB out, since Martin is almost certainly the better player.

To be fair, I have never heard a Browns fan defend that draft pick.  I have heard them defend everything else the franchise has done, but never have I heard someone defend that pick.

Having said that, I don't see how this helps the Browns get a franchise QB.  Let's face it, the Browns weren't going to win more than 4 or 5 games this year with Richardson anyways so it's not like they couldn't get the number two QB prospect. Their only hope of snagging the top QB prospect is to wind up with the number one pick and the Jags are so mindbogglingly bad that it seems impossible to outsuck them.  If the Jags win the get slaughtered for Bridgewater sweepstakes, the Browns will wind up drafting their second choice which is what they would have done after eking out five wins and all they get to do is swap Richardson for whatever receiver is left on the board at pick 17 or so.

I don't know which is more bizarre; that this is blundering business as usual for the Browns or that this might be a good move, (or, at least, the best move available,) by the Browns.  The idea of the Browns making a 'good' move shakes my confidence in reality.

As for 'betraying' season-ticket holder fans, well, they bought season tickets for the Browns.  It's not like they thought they were getting Broncos or Seahawk tickets.  I don't know whether to feel sorry for them for being Browns fans or because their best hope now is to lose the next 14 games or because 7 of those games are home games and they might slip up and go to some of them.  It's a 'can't sleep, clown will eat me vs. must sleep or go crazy' situation.

But everything else, I agree. Plus, I don't know why Cleveland thinks drafting a first-round quarterback is going to work out this time.

I think the Browns at this point just like drafting high profile players to sell tickets for a couple of years until they manage to ruin the guy and don't give a shiat about actually winning.

First I've heard of it, the only team I heard who was interested was Washington.  And even then, the Vikings wanted Kalil, who was really the only first-round tackle option.  The gap between Kalil and Reiff was so large that it wouldn't make sense for the Vikings to put themselves in a position where they would have to reach big-time for Reiff if they traded down past a team who in need of a tackle - like the Cowboys, for instance.  All of those talks were ultimately to get the Browns to panic and overpay for the player they wanted so the Vikes could rake in picks and get the guy that they wanted.  The Browns were played like a fiddle.

Either he ran the Raiders into the ground, or he was content to be the puppet of a senile old man who ran the Raiders into the ground.  He's not smart.

babysealclubber: DirtyDeadGhostofEbenezerCooke: I don't know which is more bizarre; that this is blundering business as usual for the Browns or that this might be a good move, (or, at least, the best move available,) by the Browns.  The idea of the Browns making a 'good' move shakes my confidence in reality.

As for 'betraying' season-ticket holder fans, well, they bought season tickets for the Browns.  It's not like they thought they were getting Broncos or Seahawk tickets.  I don't know whether to feel sorry for them for being Browns fans or because their best hope now is to lose the next 14 games or because 7 of those games are home games and they might slip up and go to some of them.  It's a 'can't sleep, clown will eat me vs. must sleep or go crazy' situation.

I think the Browns at this point just like drafting high profile players to sell tickets for a couple of years until they manage to ruin the guy and don't give a shiat about actually winning.


The problem with 'Clownshoes for Clowney' is that he has foot problems already.  The eventual 'Corrective Clownshoes for Clowney' would be so Cleveland that it hurts.

Previous injury issues didn't stop them from taking Richardson.

If the Browns are smart (and they're not judging by the past 14 years), they would trade the pick for an assload of other picks to get some depth.  The one strength the Browns have is defensive line and adding another one won't be beneficial.

Bendal: neritz: SlothB77: Question:  you are in a suicide league.  Who is more likely to win their game, the 49ers over the Colts or the Vikings over the Browns.  49ers and Vikings are home.  Before the trade, the 49ers were 10/10.5 favorites.  I dunno what the Vikings were, but i know the Vikings were giving less than 7 points.

I checked today and the 49ers are still in double-digits and Vikings -6/ -6.5.

/Just want to know between these two games who you would pick.  Already have Seahawks and Broncos for my other two suicide entries.  I already used up the Saints and Pats.

Vikes over the Browns.  Seahawks would be the absolute best bet this week.


Yeah I'd pick the Vikings too. The Browns are starting their 3rd string QB on Sunday and are rumored to be trying to sign Willis McGahee to a one year contract at RB.  With the way the right side of the OL has been playing though, they could put Adrian Petersen and Peyton Manning in that offense and still lose against nearly anyone.

/Browns fan
//never saw a franchise deliberately throw a season 2 games in before
///until now


The Vikings would be a more useful pick this week just because it then saves the 49ers for a later week.

Seahawks are 19 point favorites against the Jags.

I was wondering how quickly Richardson would learn the playbook.  Looks like the Colts plan is basically "Luck is smart enough, he is just gonna tell Richardson what to do in the huddle each play."  If that's the case and Richardson doesn't need to learn the playbook, then he should get a lot of snaps Sunday.

chevydeuce: Just read that nobody from the Browns organization thought it prudent to inform Richardson that he had been traded.  Says he heard about it after one of his buddies called him on the phone and asked.  Had to turn on the radio to hear the news.


It's probably for the best.  I can't imagine he would have been able to act disappointed when they sat him down and told him they were trading him to the Colts.  Richardson has to be the happiest guy in the league right now.  Holy shiat.  He has a chance to be a part of a winning franchise, and he doesn't have to live in Ohio anymore.  All of his fantasy owners have to be thrilled as well.

I swear to god I can't take it anymore. All my life with this farking team. Nothing but heartbreak, misery, and failure failure failure.
I loved them unconditionally, but they do not love me back. I have nothing left to give...

If you can believe what Richardson told a local reporter right after he was informed of the trade, he was both surprised and disappointed on the move. He apparently wanted to play for Cleveland and was looking forward to spending a lot of his career there.

That the Browns' front office claiming he had left the facility so they couldn't tell him to his face about the trade just tells you what d*cks they are. He said the first he heard of the trade was from his agent.
