The Browns personnel staff is GUTLESS!

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Memo to EVP Brown:  You and your staff are GUTLESS.  They won’t pick a QB in fear they will screw it up.  I hope you are GONE before the next NFL Draft.

Too cute for your own good.

While the 1st pick should have been a no brainer, someone in the Browns “brain trust” was leaking comments about taking a QB with that pick.  All Browns fans now know that was a bald-faced lie.  This group DOESN’T HAVE THE GUTS TO TAKE A QB!

If you think the clock doesn’t start until you take a quarterback, YOU ARE WRONG!  Thanks to your blunders and bad draft picks, we fans suffered through a 1 win season!  Watson was graded below last year QB Myles Garrett that you gave to the Eagles.  He then beat you in the 1st game of the season.

This year you not only bailed the Texans out of a HORRIBLE contract they gave to Brock Osweiler, but then you gave them their new QB in Deshaun Watson.  The Texans will make EVP Brown their MVP of the season.  The down side is the Browns will face the Texans the week before they go to London.  If they lose to another QB they passed on, don’t expect to still be the EVP on the trip home.

I have no animosity toward you and wish you the very best.  I pray it is not as the Browns EVP.

What will the Browns do in the draft

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , ,

NOTE:  On NNR Samantha Bunten of NBC Sports, Tony Williams of Metro NY and I discussed the news of the day and the NNR Mock draft on fryingpansports.com/radio-show.

My view of the world tells me past actions are a good indication of future events.  That does not bode well for Browns fans.  The Browns have had more 1st round picks than any team in NFL history over the last several years.  And for the most part, those guys are not on the roster.  That is what happens when you put a lawyer in charge of the draft.

Part of that was due to the failure of the top draft people to go to the pro days.  When you go to a player’s pro day, you get to talk to those around the player.  A perfect example was the 2014 draft.

In that draft, the Browns had 2 1st round picks.  With the 8th overall pick they selected Justin “No tackle” Gilbert.  Had they gone to his pro day, they would have heard him say “check my film” when someone asked him to catch some punts.

At #22 they selected Johnny “Wreck this league” Manziel.  Had they gone to the Texas A&M pro day, they might have found out he was a heavy drinker and decided against him.

So, I ask the question again.  What will the Browns do in the draft?  From a Browns fan since 1954, I have to guess that they will find a way to screw it up again.

That is what I think.  Tell us what you think by commenting here or tweeting me @NNRonDSN.

Patrick Mahomes

Patrick Mahomes is looking forward to NFL Combine, and is aching to play for the Browns and Hue Jackson. He is the quarterback for Texas Tech and wants to show that he is just as strong as Deshaun Watson and Mitch Trubisky to coach Hue Jackson. During Super Bowl week, Mahomes told cleveland.com said that he wants to be one of the first picks in the draft and really has his heart set on the Browns because they seem to be going in the right direction.

Mahomes is actually noted as the third or fourth best quarterback in the upcoming draft. Other top quarterbacks include DeShone Kizer and Trubisky Watson.
