Cleveland Browns

135 posts in this topic

I am finally looking forward to a Cleveland Browns season. I don't think they're playoff caliber yet, obviously, but I do think they'll win at least 6 games for once. I'm excited to see what happens with Trent Richardson running the ball behind a much needed O-Line that we finally improved.

If Brandon Weeden is some miracle in disguise, we may pull off 8 or 9 wins. Unfortunately, he still does not have any targets to throw too though - but I do think he is miles ahead of Colt McCoy.

Are there any other Browns fans out there?

No doubt Browns fans are the most awesome and loyal fans in all of sports! You fill more stadiums than most teams, but your team never delivers!

This coming from a Rams fan. We suck. We get outcrowded by visiting teams sometimes - or so I'm told by fans that actually attend games LOL!

You guys are gonna love Trent.  He is a beast, and he's a complete back.  He can run, catch and pick up the blitz.  Enjoy!

The Browns should be better at least.  Im a Packer fan myself but a lot of my friends and coworkers here in Ohio are Browns fans and are cautiously optimistic about this season.

Brownie here... Hoping that they get back to .500+.  But I'm worried as we still don't have a proven QB.  You can't win in the NFL without a QB.

You still can, but it's very hard, and you pretty much have to have all other holes covered.

The Bears have been doing it for years.

Cutler's capable. I just assumed Beachcomber was talking more about the Chad Henne's of the league.

Huge Browns fan here! (iacas can attest - I wore my Browns polo for my free lesson @ Reunion last month). Former president of the Palm Beach Backers chapter.

Team will definitely be improved in 2012 (shit they were 4-12 in 2011). TR will give us the identity. Weeden with his arm will stretch defenses.

Watch out for Greg Little this year. 61 catches in 2011. Big, speedy. Ignore the drops in 2011...he didn't play football in 2010.

And the defense is better than many think. Solid line (tho the Phil Taylor torn pec is obviously a concern) & solid secondary - Haden will be a shutdown corner & Ward will knock you into next week. A little thin at OLB which concerns me - they're susceptible to opposing TEs.

Bottom line, they're building the team for the division they play in - AFC North - they'll pass to set up the run & rely on TR to close out games. The defense will keep them in contests.

They're one more good draft away from taking the AFCN.

Got that right! I watched TR tear up SEC defenses last year. And for those that say that ain't the NFL...uh yeah, it pretty much is. Toughest conference in college football without a doubt.

Life-long Bengals fan here!  I usually pull for you guys every year.  I'm a fan of the underdog and I despise the Steelers so you will always have my support against them.

I hope TR works out for you.  I was hoping that we would have traded up for him but knew it was a long shot.

Good luck this year!

And, you have to consider that he was playing against the best defense every day in practice.

That is what is great about NFL football.  Every fan of every team can legitimately feel optimistic about their team's prospects.

The way I look at it, they're undefeated in 2012. And when I'm asked what their record will be, I say 16-0 until proven otherwise.

Haha. I just hate the "there's always next year" theme that we've had for the longest time. I grew up in the hard-nosed rivalry days where watching "The Drive" was a heart breaker - but at least when we played the Steelers, we saw some hard-knock football. Blood, bruises and respect. Now it's just a disaster...Browns' players being carted off the field, weak scoring, etc. I just want my son to grow up and not be ashamed of rooting for the Browns. Also, people that are 18 or younger have it the worst here... because they were born into a terrible team. I at least was able to see Byner burn the ball up field, Slaughter making diving 1 handed catches while getting smashed in mid-air, and Metcalf returning kicks and punts like every other player on the field was frozen in time.

I need a winning team out of Weeden and Richardson, and I need one yesterday!

Ah, memories...

Nev Chandler was the best. Jimmy Donovan ain't too bad either -

You're telling me there was a time when the Browns didn't absolutely suck?!

    • I think an active lead knee (or both knees) certainly helps with sequencing. In order for the knee to move forward and around (and straighten) it helps for it to gain some flex and rotate internally on the backswing. Creates some "flow". I basically described what I mean by active knee movement in my previous post in this thread. Like I said, doing the knee stuff in of itself might not be the answer, have to consider how the torso is working to facilitate the motion/pieces. While I love Jack's swing and think there is a lot we can learn from it, he was a special players and he would have been just as good with a swing where he kept the lead heel planted.
    • Quality over quantity! I understand the concept, but 2 grand for 3 wedges? There's no way they out perform vokey or any of your other major wedges enough to warrant those kind of prices! That's just my opinion. You're 100% correct there are people with money to blow who will buy them just to say they did. IMO it's all about the player. Spieth for example could take any wedge and most likely perform better than I ever will be able to. Which I'm sure you will agree to some extent. Just blows my mind at the cost! 
    • I'm still putting my money on you being the bigger head case.  
    • The dude has won 2 majors with glaringly less talent than the other top players....I don't think that happens to a head case. People tend to think otherwise at times because he wears his emotions on his sleeve so vividly, but Spieth's mental game is still more of an asset than anything else for him IMO. With his relatively limited talent, you don't accomplish things that only Jack, Tiger, and Seve have done if you're truly a head case. Reality vs. perception difference here.
    • The site of the 2017 U.S. Open is near my old stomping grounds...I was born about 30 min. away from where Erin Hills was eventually built.  I moved from that area long before the course was even planned, so I've never been there or played it or anything, but I learned some interesting things this evening. I have a good friend up there who works for a limo/shuttle company, and he has been driving people from Madison, Milwaukee and O'Hare to Erin Hills for several days, and he made several comments on how remote the golf course is.  It might not be exactly in the middle of nowhere, but apparently a short drive would get you there. There is only one way in, and one way out.  And these are country roads, not four-lane highways. They announced this site would host the U.S. Open in 2010...seven years ago, and they couldn't get a better road system in place?  I thought that was one of the things that they took into consideration when they scout potential sites?  It sounds like this course was earmarked to host USGA events before it was even built, so if they set out to design a course that would one day host a major, why wouldn't the road infrastructure be included? Anyway, the course itself is a monster...or at least can be, when the stretch it out.  From the blacks it plays 7,800 yds, but it looks like it will play about 7,700 during the tournament.  All four par 5s are over 600 yds, two par 4s are over 500 yds, and two others are over 480.  This is the first time in many years the course will play to a par of 72, which actually gives the guys a chance to make up some ground.
