Note: On NNR today Samantha Bunten of NBC Sports & I reviewed the recent transactions in the NFL and analyzed the Browns offense. The podcast is on http://fryingpansports.com/radio-show/.
Of all the issues the Browns face clearly QB is the most troubling. Rather than resigning Bryan Hoyer the Browns opted to let him leave and sign Josh McCown. McCown was brought in to Tampa to be the starter by new head coach Lovie Smith. While McCown did not produce many wins in his 11 starts (1-10) in a way he helped solve the QB issue by getting the top pick in 2015 for the Bucs.
If that is what the Browns have planned for 2015, it will be a L O N G S E A S O N for Browns fans. There is little chance that McCown, Johnny Manziel, or any of the other QB’s on the roster can lead the team to many wins given the schedule against the AFC & NFC West. Perhaps I was not far wrong when I suggested that the plan was “Crash for Cardale.”
That is what I think. Tell us what you think by commenting here or tweeting me @NNRonDSN.
