There is a lot of conversation about whether Kizer is franchise QB the team has needed for so long. He might be exactly what the Browns need at the most important position in the game. But it is hard to tell when so many throws that are right on target are dropped by a receiver group that is worse than 2 teams I coached in semi-pro football.
The brain-dead people making draft picks have given HC Jackson a team that is green as baby peas. They let the 1 WR that had 1000+ yards and was new to the WR position go but brought in a guy that could not catch a cold standing naked on the edge of Lake Erie in a sleet storm. He also has 1 1000 yard season but has been in the league for years.
They also passed up 2 other QBs that could have started the “rebuild” much earlier and given beaten down Browns fans some hope. If this group made good choices with those extra picks I might agree. They do not and the proof is the 1 win we have seen in the two years that they have been in control.
If Jet QB Josh McCown comes back to Cleveland and beats the Browns, there will be hell to pay. He is better than most people think and could pull it off. At least he has led the Jets to a 2 and 2 season so far.
After a 1 and 15 season, the stands will be filled with a lot of empty seats. That has to concern Browns ownership. Tickets for the last home game were selling for $6.00. A few more losses and season ticket holders will not be able to give their tickets away.
That is what I think. Tell us what you think by commenting here or tweeting me @NNRonDSN.
