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.

Coaches on the hot seat in 2017

 

1Jets Cuts of all the vets won’t help the win totals and cost the coaches their jobs.
 

2

Browns After a 1-15 season, they better get at least 6 wins to keep their jobs
 

3

Bears After a 3 win season, they better get at least 6 games or Fox & company are gone
 

4

Colts Bad ownership & GM will cost HC Chuck Pagano his job.  Part of the blame is on him and his staff.
 

5

Bengals had better get to the playoffs & win a game or Marvin Lewis cpuld be history
 

6

Panthers need to get control of QB Cam Newton or Rivera may be history.
 

7

Jags better get more than 3 wins or Bye Bye. Doug Marrone has failed before could fail again.
 

8

LA Chargers Moves are always hard. GM has not done the Coaches any favors.
 

9

The Vikes may have to get back in the playoffs or Mike Zimmer could be in trouble. Injuries have plauged the Vikes
 

10

Ravens HC John Harbaugh is not in serious trouble but OC Marty Morinwheg is not helping him. Playoffs or MM is out

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

Drafting QB Kizer was a good First step BUT…

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

 DeShone Kizer was my top QB in a very weak class.  Clearly what happened to the Notre Dame program had a lot more to do with very bad coaching, even worse recruiting, and a brain-dead staff than what Kizer did or didn’t do.  But there are a bunch of issues that the Browns will have to address.

The first issue is Kizer’s mechanics.  A combination of a very pathetic O line, the lack of a consistent run game, and a group of wide receivers that couldn’t catch a cold standing naked in a sleet storm on Lake Michigan, his mechanics went south in a hurry.  But we saw him in 2015 and he as much better.

The question is can the Browns coaching staff get him back to his 2015 throwing motion and footwork?

The personnel department did a good job fixing the O line issues (except for RT) in free agency.  That was a good move because the O line in the draft was below average.  Kizer or whoever starts for the Browns will have better protection than last year.  That should also help the running game.  But this will be as difficult a test for the coaching staff as any they have faced last year.

If the staff can fix Kizer’s mechanics and footwork, he has the physical gifts to be an above average QB in the NFL.  If not, a new staff will have a chance next year to help him.  A 1 win season gives very little cover for this staff.

My last piece of advice for the Cleveland Browns coaching staff and personnel department is this:  Win some games BEFORE the London trip or you may be unemployed when you get home.

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

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.

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