I am over the top elated with this signing. I was a tad bit down on also giving up Peppers but he's an up and coming, not an already there. If we sign Earl Thomas, great. I bet we go LB in the 2nd now, if we don't trade back into the 1st. S and CB will need addressed this draft as well. I can't remember when I was so excited to watch this team. I saw the disgust in Giants fans tweets...they didn't get enough. They got what the could to remove him, like the Steelers and AB, which makes the signing of OBJ last year all the more head scratching. 

Mayfield's mobility will help the playmaking ability of OBJ, not hinder it. 4400 yds and 33 TDs for him this season. 

When you can strip down your team to an over-the-hill QB and a stud RB, you do it, apparently.

 

I'm actually considering attending a game or two, after spending most of 2016/17 turning games off in disgust. I

had season tickets for about 15 years sandwiched around the Modell's defection to Baltimore, but haven't paid to attend a game in probably 10 years (just a couple free tickets).

Yep will be a harder ticket to get, and I really have gotten used to the comfort of watching at home.

This team should definitely be fun to watch - good for CLE.

But man, I cant even IMAGINE how that locker room is gonna be if/when things go a bit rough -

Talk about a collection of personalities...

wow, CLE is winning. Harris is not going to get publicity, but he is quietly a good TE. Ya know, the type of TE that DEN should have signed since we get to see him more than other teams and also have a need, so :confused:

good for CLE

Browns agreed to terms with TE Demetrius Harris, formerly of the Chiefs, on a two-year contract.

GM John Dorsey was in Kansas City with Harris. The 6'7/230 tight end has definite skills but had been stuck behind Travis Kelce with the Chiefs. Unfortunately, he now appears to be going to Cleveland to play behind David Njoku. Harris caught a career-best three touchdowns last year while averaging 13.7 yards per catch. He should be a factor in the red zone.

I saw that was gonna happen last night and saw that it did this morning. Being in those 32 team leagues has made me aware of Harris. Glad to have him

how is CLE's OL?

 

Was great last year but they lost Kevin Zeitler in the trade for Vernon so that might hurt but the Browns were looking to trade him to open up a spot on the line for their 2nd round pick last year.  We will see if that hurts them or not this year.

Very few Browns fans are bandwagon fans, unlike many other teams (including Steelers, Pats, Packers, Cowboys). Sure some may be piling onto the train now, but there were many already there just waiting for our day to come.

Agree. The Browns have always had a very loyal fan base. It's a good football town.

It was a hard sell. A terrible product + the bitterly cold lakefront stadium made the choice easy to stay home. I actually bought the Sunday ticket for a few years so I could watch my fantasy players instead of the entire Browns game...doesn't make me a bandwagon fan, just a realist. Everyone knew they were tanking...

I think Baker Mayfield is going to be a great quarterback.  And I think that Odell might be the best wide receiver in the league, if not ever.  But their styles don't mesh well.  Odell is most dominant over the middle of the field.  He glides across the middle with the grace of Jerry Rice and goes vertical like Michael Jordan.  Over the middle, his combination of grace, speed, verticality, and dexterity is unprecedented for a wide receiver.  But Baker Mayfield might be too short to pass over the middle effectively like a Tom Brady or Peyton Manning or Eli Manning.  I think Antonio Brown would have been a better receiver for Baker.  Antonio is an expert receiver close to the sideline.  Baker can throw to the sideline without having tall offensive lineman obstructing his vision.  Baker is mobile and can extend plays.  Odell will get a lot of receptions on broken plays.  But this marriage isn't perfect.

 

 

I think you are overthinking this. Mayfield has a gunslinger mentality. OBJ can beat anyone in a jump ball type scenario, and frequently he can beat any two guys in those scenarios. What's the point of having an all-world WR if your QB is too gun shy to let him make a play (think Brock Osweiler's impact on DeAndre Hopkins).

 

This marriage is closer to perfect than you've led on. The only argument you've really made here is that Mayfield is too short to throw slants and such over the middle, but Drew Brees is shorter than Mayfield and manages just fine with those routes. Again, I just think you've gotten too microscopic in the analysis.

Can't wait to see Mayfield and Beckham throwing helmets at each other on the sideline, it's gonna be epic!

Your pretty hot on the Odell deal. You might want to take a cold shower.
