Any thoughts on the draft? I said "We got who?" for the Chiefs and the Patriots. What about the trades up for Johnny Football and Teddy Bridgewater?

I lol'd at Manziel going to Cleveland. He threatened to go Elway/Manning and not sign with Jacksonville if he was picked 3rd -- I assume he'll try to pull the same at Cleveland.

Surprised that Bortles was the first QB off the board.

And Clowney playing with J.J. Watt sounds scary.

I'm highly amused at the Vikings leapfrogging the Texans to take Bridgewater. That leaves the QB-desperate Texans stuck with Derek Carr, David's brother, as the next-best QB.

Pretty Much. Though, some of us hope that Manziel sits at least a full season and learns to throw first, run only when needed.

NFL Season is back

Ray Rice is cut/banned
And ESPN having Ray Lewis comment on it is a joke.

I also miss Flex in this thread. =P

I've missed this place.


Thoughts so far on the state of Cleveland Sports.

The Indians. They are trying so hard, with so little, to be relevant. Here's to just missing the playoffs, but feeling good about the season. I am a little bummed that I don't get to watch Lindor in a Cleveland Jersey for the last month of the season.

The Cavs. I'm not a huge basketball fan. But, I have to say that if the Cavs win it all this year, I don't think that it will feel as good as it could. It will feel cheapened, by the
Hi, I'm lebron. I'm coming home.
OH MY GOD! LBJ IS IN CLEVELAND!
I wanna go!
Me Too!
Me Too!
Hey, make room for me!

I would have rather won it without him (not that it would have happened) than the feeling that this is a "rented" team

The Browns. Snatching defeat from the jaws of awesomeness. Man, that was a tale of two quarters, topped with a steaming shitburger of failure. Not surprised Tate is hurt. But I've been saying it since the Rams game:

HOW THE HOLY FLYING SPAGHETTI MONSTER did Isaiah Crowell go UN FREAKING DRAFTED?!

That dude is a MONSTER. He is surely impressive to watch run. I don't think he'll ever be a "featured" back, but the West / Crowell tandem looked an awful lot better than the Tate / West tandem.

I could go on and on and on and on and on about that topic. Both on why Gordon is an idiot, and the current personal conduct policy / drug policy / other policies leave me wanting for some real accountability from the NFL.

To see the way things originally shook out from Godon / Rice issues, I tweeted:

Gather round kids. Uncle Roger is going to tell you why Drugs are bad, and that bitch deserved to get knocked the fuck out.

The notion that the NFL, cops and prosecutors did not have the video is risible. Now that the cops are saying they did have the video and shared it with the NFL... well... I expect some middle manager to be thrown under the bus... on the other hand, I have no idea how the prosecutor did not raise charges against Rice, cuz I am pretty sure prosecution did see that video if the cops say they had the video early on.

To quote Roger Goodell as he commented on Spygate and Bountygate: "If you they didn't know about it, they should have known about it."

Hoist him by his own petard, methinks.

Taking bets on who ends with a better record Pitt, or Cleveland.

Right now, I'm inclined to say Cleveland. Not because I'm a fan of one, and hate the other. But because I've watched the games so far.

Pittsburgh looked good for exactly 2 quarters out of 8. The first two of the first game. At which point, I would have said they looked good. Since then, they have been outscored 50-9 in 6 quarters, and look dreadful in doing so.

My prediction:

Cleveland 6-10
Pittsburgh 5-11

And I think that Cleveland is going to have some great games this season. Nail Biters, just like what we've seen so far. But you can't win like that all the time. You have to get to a point where you are showing consistent play.

Pitt just looks slow, old, and tired. They've been sloppy and undisciplined defensively, and #7 still seems like a square peg in a round hole with portions of the Offensive Scheme.

which is sad. I mean... Is Tomlin a Bad Coach? Is the organization just too vested in the older defensive players? Are the coaches and players not a schematic match? Something isn't right.


I'll be the first to say, that I felt like Pettine was a "we'll just get this guy, because no one else wants the job" hire. I mean, when I first saw him, I thought. When did the guy from Storage Wars get into coaching?!

But, He has the team playing hard, and striving to get better.

At least he isn't Mornhiweg. I mean, not saying Pettine is bad. Like you said, he's getting the guys to play hard which is more than other coaches can say about their own locker rooms.

BTW, thoughts on Penn State crying foul over Ped State t-shirts?

PEd State.
Was it in bad taste? Definitely.
Should the fans have done it? Probably not.
Is this the sad current state of affairs? Maybe?
Is it any worse than me continuing to refer to that guy as rapeswithlager? not really.

Browns had a bye week, and I still had to fucking listen to news about Johnny fucking clipboard.
Patriots look.... terrible.
Shittsburgh lost to the bucs (insert lolface here)
Indians "are who we thought they were". And next year, with less Wahoo. (about time) Hopefully, the team looks a little better next year. Though... what we do with Swisher and his balloon payment of a contract is befuddling. At least Brantley, Santana, Gomes, Kluber, and (you have no idea how I loathe saying this) Chisenhall look to be a decent base to build around. Kipnis as well, if he can get healthy and back on the horse.

Earlier this year, he said he planned to play until he sucked, at which point he would retire.

I'm expecting the press conference any minute.


On another note Klaud, if you want to have some fun this Sunday during the Foosball games, keep refreshing #angrybrownsfan on twitter during the game. We post some fun stuff.

The Cleveland Browns are 2-2.

They could be 0-4.
They could be 1-3
THey are 2-2.
They could be 3-1.
THey could be 3-0-1
They could be 4-0.

They lost to the Steelers on a As time Expired FG in regulation.
They beat the saints on a FG as time expired in regulation.
They lost to the Ravens on a FG as time expired in regulation.
They beat the Titans on a TD pass with 1:07 on the clock. Tennessee drove, trying to kick a GW FG, but the sack did them in.

I have not seen a team that can look so utterly pathetic (see 1st half of GM1, and 1st of GM4 for examples), yet so dominant (see second half of those games), and so middle of the rd (see the other 2 games) as the Browns. Their defense can look beyond pathetic, (I tweeted yesterday during the first half that Stephen Hawking could rush for 100 yards against our defense), and then make adjustments and come back and be "for real" when it matters.

Looking at the next few weeks on the schedule, I would not be surprised if we hit 8 games into the season and are 2-6 or 6-2 heading into our game at Cincinnati.

I don't think they are a playoff team. I just don't see it in the cards. But, I don't think that we are going to be in the top half of the draft this year either.

From here on out, I would say it breaks down like this:

Pit - It's in Cleveland. Realistically speaking, we'll probably lose. 2-3
Jax - At JAx. This is a game we should win. 3-3
Oak - In Clev. This is a game we should win. 4-3
TB - In Clev. This is a game we should win. 5-3
Cin - In the queen city. Probably a loss. 5-4
Hou - in Clev. tough game to call. I'm giving them HFA in this game. 6-4.
Gordon returns.
ATL - in ATL. Loss. 6-5
Buf - in Buf. A game I think we should be able to win. 7-5. Gordon should make a big impact starting here.
Ind - In Clev. Doesn't matter. Loss. 7-6
Cin - In Clev. Another tough game to call. Probably still a loss 7-7
Car - in Car. I'm not as sold on the panthers as some. i think Cam is just too banged up (Rib, Ankle, Teeth) and they don't have a run game to speak of outside of Cam. Close, but a win.
8-7.
Bal - In Baltimore. Will depend on where they are in the playoff picture, but it should be another nail biter of a game. But probably a loss. 8-8.

And as a Browns fan? I'm ok with that. 8-8 is marked progress in the first year of a coaching change. While the hiring of Pettine in a lot of ways was... bizarre, I think that it's working. Even if he is the love child of a reality TV Star, and a WWE personality, I like that his demeanor. I like his press conferences. And I like that I haven't seen much of Haslam in the news. Maybe, after a couple of messed up / really bizarre seasons, we might be starting to rid ourselves of the Factory of Sadness.
