If a quarterback ever does lead Cleveland to the promised land and a Lombardi trophy he will be a god. God of Cleveland, but a god nonetheless

HaywoodJablonski: Oldiron_79: Taking the Browns to the Super Bowl is my favorite euphemism for taking a shiat

"Logging out" is highly underappreciated.

paintin' the town brown is a fun grandiloquence for explosive diarrhea.

And a collection of live Ween songs.

Whoever we draft i'd put money on being a bust. It just always seems to work out that way. If we do end up getting someone worth a shiat they'll just blow their acl, wipe on a motorcycle, get staph, or some other such bs.

/yeah, I know I sound like just another bitter ass browns fan, because I am.

Well... we could do worse.  I like Johnny Football though, if only because his game isn't entirely based on skill.  We've tried the drafting based on skill... and it hasn't worked.  I don't know if Manziel will be a successful NFL quarterback, but whatever happens will be interesting.  I tend to agree with whoever said he is like another Doug Flutie.   I believe Doug Flutie said that.

At what point do Goodell and the other owners hold an intervention?  This is downright self-destructive.

bronyaur1: The fact is that exactly zero people on the planet actually know whether or not  this guy will suck, be avg, be good or be great as a pro.

While under ordinary circumstances you would be right, if he goes to Cleveland the outcome is very predictable. Even if we go back to pre-"suspended operations", the last QB they had that performed at a high level was Bernie Kosar. Cleveland is where quarterbacks go to die.

It must be tough on draft day knowing that if you're really good and likely to go high you have an excellent chance of going to the Browns. Most people aspire to a long, prosperous Hall of Fame career, not backup status after the first contract is up and crippling pain from all the hits in the first 5 years of their career.

I often envy football players their money and fame. I will never envy a Browns quarterback either of those. He earns every bit of it.

I'd try and claim this headline was ripped from my comment at the end of the Browns-Patriots game, but I'm sure it's been said a thousand times before elsewhere.

\so when is jersey name guy going to run out of height to fit another name on it?

Could be worse. I read the headline and thought they must have hired Wade Phillips as head coach.
