Woke up today excited about the fact we now have a QB that can make all the throws! the Weeden pick surprised me, but Im liking it more and more.
Im also enjoying reading all the "former" Browns fans swear off their team with "fire everybody" and "im not their fan anymore" just cause they didnt select the player they liked most.
Get over it! theres more than one way to improve this team!!!!
Whats your thought on the 2nd round Pick?
WR, RT, or Something else
im saying RT in the 2nd
WR in the 3rd
I have to think he would have been there at 37 meaning we wiffed at the ability to score some WR or OL talent at 22.Who did we wiff on?
Weeden . . . I hope he's as good as all of the self-annointed experts here think he is. However, IMO, picking him at 22 was a reach. I have to think he would have been there at 37 meaning we wiffed at the ability to score some WR or OL talent at 22.You could be right and we'll never know but the Chiefs might have jumped ahead of you in the 2nd round.
I love how Irish just keeps trying to convince people that Tannehill is not good, but people who study and work at this for months/yrs think he will b a bona fide starter for many yrs. I will take the comments from players who played and other experts that say Weeden needs a lot of work on running a conventional offense, reading defenses(brought up Iowa St game where they zone blitzed him to death and he had no clue)....should b good vs Pitt and Balt.I didn't say Weeden won't need work. I am saying that I think he is a much better QB than Tannehill based on what I have seen on tape.
(brought up Iowa St game where they zone blitzed him to death and he had no clue)....should b good vs Pitt and Balt.Another reason I LOVE the Richardson pick at #4...He will help with these blitz packages the way he did at Alabama. Best RB in the draft doing this.
How can u say whatever Heckert and Holmgren do ur in favor of it when 2 yrs ago he just drafted Mccoy? Obvioulsy, if they get rid of him or hes a backup how does he have credibility when that was his hand picked guy?Pretty easy stopper, if his shoulder is the issue, it would be no one's "fault" that they took a 3rd round flyer that it would eventually heal, but didn't. If you have a shot at a franchise guy in the 3rd, you take it...
So lets draft a RB top 5 cause he can pick up a blitz. U can find a FB late in the rounds or via FA to do that. Also, taking a pounding throughout the yrs w head on collisions w blitzing LB's isnt the safest way to make a career.Wow, density is not something you are lacking in....
Top Dawg whats so funny? I have seen plenty of 3rd round picks become stars in the NFL. If Holmgren is such a guru, McCoy should have been more successful.(shaking head...rolling eyes.....sigh)
So Weeden is so much better than Tannehill, but u could have waited until the 2nd round to select him? That makes no sense at all while Tannehill was projected top 10.Says YOU that they could have waited until the 2nd to draft him...No one will ever know if he would have been available in the 2nd round. What we do know at this point is that they didn't need to reach for one of these WRs or RTs at #22, because they are ALL still on the board going into the 2nd round. Makes my faith in Heckert more believable than your assessment of where someone whould be drafted.
