Makes sense. The "number 2" seems to be a theme with them.

fark can you imagine there you are, a stud in college, you kicked ass, maybe carried your team to a couple wins and are looking forward to at least a few years in the pros, you're young, healthy, got your whole life ahead of you, make some good money, maybe even putting some away so you can get that Post NFL Car Dealership that you always wanted, you know, really put that communication's degree that you totally earned to work.
Up ahead however, looming in the distance are the farking Browns. Stage 4 cancer football team, like not even a friendly cancer that drops you fast like brain cancer.  No it's bowel cancer or maybe tip-of-the-dick cancer.  You're gonna wear the worst uniform, play for the worst team, live in a terrible city, and have a front office that makes the Afghanistan Army look efficient.

That farked with me too. Especially when Brown was talking for the Browns at the owners' meeting.

"Every team misses. We're not going to be different in that regard."

Nobody misses in the draft like Cleveland does. Don't sell us short, Sashi.

True football leaders don't see that.  They see an opportunity to destroy that stage 4 cancer.

Except for being patently incorrect about the city itself, I agree.  But, isn't that the fate of all top 10ish picks?

The one big plus about being drafted by the Browns is you have a great chance of being a starter.  Would you rather be a starter for the Browns or on the Patriots' practice squad?  You get to be on TV with the former, but you may get a ring with the latter.

Bears: swap your #3 for their #12, plus a second and third round pick. Do this deal today.

Do it.

Thank you.  I get tired of reminding people that it isn't 1978 any more and Cleveland is a pretty fun place with other teams besides the browns.  Its really just the dead-enders that can't afford OSU tickets that still follow the browns.

How many years until all picks in the first round are Cleveland's?
 
2017-04-21 09:10:01 AM  
No! This is the year we do it right!
 
2017-04-21 09:18:53 AM  
The Browns would be more successful if they'd give all their draft picks to one of their division rivals, in exchange for guaranteed wins two times in the season.

Remember when Paul Brown coached Jimmy Brown for the Browns ??

IF (and they had farking better) the Browns take Garrett and he's a bust then either:

A) They deserve no blame at all as damn near every person who has ever seen a football game puts this guy as the clear #1 pick

or

B) They are well and truly cursed and should probably fold the franchise

In all seriousness please accept my apology about the city, after growing up in the PNW I probably have a bit of a bias and will admit that I took it a step too far there.

I think there is a lure with any Type A personality to be a part of the thing that turned a team around, it is necessary and legitimate in order to be an effective professional sports player.  However you can't ignore the track record of failure and poor management. Chances are you're not going to be the one to slay the dragon, many have come before you and their broken bodies litter the ground.

It is not just a problem with the roster, it is management, roster issues are minor compared to that especially in the NFL when the shelf-life of a football player can be so short. It is management and coaching that wins games. (Of course it is the players on the field who actually WIN the game, but like them or lump them look at what good coaching, management, and scouting can do to turn a team around like with the Seahawks or Patriots for example, to prove the point look at what poor coaching, management, and scouting can do for the same team in the past when they are literally drowning in draft picks).

Having never been a professional football player I can't say for sure, but I would be willing to bet that getting picked by The Browns is not high on the list of your average rookie. For me I would rather ride the pine playing for a team who had their act together than have my body squandered and career cut short playing for a team who's management has no business running a high school football program let alone a NFL team.

It'll be interesting to see how this works out for Trubisky -- if that is who they are trading up to pick (and I think it is).  He's a local kid, so that changes the dynamic a little bit.  If a local kid could come in as QB of the Browns and be involved in a turn around...wow.  He'll own the place.

Exactly... if you can't help turn around the fortunes of a franchise, guess what... you ain't that stud in the first place.     People like omg bbqdon't understand the concept of working hard to get to a higher plateau (or really, they just are simply unable to do it).

The concept that the Browns have ruined good talent is way off base.     Cleveland's problem has always been picking the wrong player, in the first place.    Does anyone truly believe Johnny Manziel, with his maturity and substance abuse problems, would've lit the league up at a more stable organization?  Of course not.  No one is knocking on his door right now, are they?

In the last 20 years, in the 2.0 version of the Browns, i'd say the only player they ushered out of the league sooner than he should've been was Tim Couch, who got battered behind an expansion-team offensive line.

TFA makes no sense.

"We think no matter how prepared you are there is always a lot of uncertainty in the draft."

The one thing certain about the draft is the higher you pick, the more you have to pay the player. So the way to mitigate the uncertainty is to draft more later, cheaper players than fewer earlier, expensive players. Moving up in the first round is going in the wrong direction.

Oh I see now. It makes "Cleveland sense."
 
2017-04-21 03:42:17 PM  
Oh, and didn't the Browns bring in money ball management?

Unless this is just talk to raise the trade bait so they can move _down_ from 12. Moving up in that position is the thing they do if they want to spend a lot of money without being better.

I simply want it out of pure schadenfreude because Cleveland fans want him for some reason.  The QB I really want SF to go after is Sam Darnold if he leaves after next season.  The kid is a natural winner.

I'm a Cleveland fan and don't think it's the right move at all if we trade up for a guy who has played 11 games in the ACC. He may end being good and I'm ok with taking him at 12 if he's there but no earlier.

But that is just another day being a Browns fan. Having someone else pick him after they make the deal and go on to be a huge success while the Browns pick is a typical Brown would be more entertaining.

So he'll take the Browns to the Super Bowl, lose, win a couple with the Steelers, then come back and finally win one for the Browns?
