Poll

How many wins do you think the Browns will have in 2018.  Preseason doesn't count.

0 (Another perfect season!)
1-2 (With a high draft pick we can get our quarterback of the future again!)
3-4 (An optimist would see this as a glass 1 quarter full, not 3 quarters empty!)
5-6 (Really do we have to go over .500 to have a "winning season"?)
7-8 (yeah right)
Some other inconcievable number higher than 8

My thoughts: 

Garrett and Ward are both looking legit- excited to see a few round 1 picks actually may pan out for once!

We were slow to take advantage of what should be a great running game, and we gave up on the run the minute we fell behind, again.

The O-line is made of wet tissue paper.   Can we ask the Saints to play us schoolyard style with no lines and a 3-Mississipi count instead?  Hell, 1 Mississippi would give TT more time.

I would think New Orleans would have an advantage on things involving the Mississippi.

My gut instinct is the Browns will stun the Saints at home.  The Bud Light coolers will be open next weekend.

Two or more ties per season....

wow so there were actually 6 teams with 3 ties in a season. san diego had the most recent 3 tie season in 1970. while its still a big step up for the browns, lets not hope for any more ties/setting a new tie record lol.

Ties were all the rage when the league started back in the 20s and 30s. Of course, Canton, Dayton and Pottsville, PA had teams in those days too.

Ties are going to increase in frequency with OT scaled back from 15 to 10 minutes. Last year, the Browns would have had three more chances to blow the win.  ;D

I'd honestly take a bullet for that man.

When sports translates to life, one of the greatest lessons he ever taught me was that until we played a perfect game, with no turnovers, with touchdowns every drive, with no missed tackles, with no penalties - then we can look to blame the referee. But if and when that perfect game ever comes, there will be no need to blame anyone, because we will have won.

I remind myself of that all the time. When its easiest to blame someone else, always try to look in the mirror first, as painful as that may be.

Same goes for the Browns team this week.

So that Jets game that was circled for a "win" isn't looking like such a cake walk today.

Not sure, could be as soon as a few years or as long as another decade or so. We won states my senior year, and at the beginning of that season there were alumni saying "the game had passed him by"... so we'll see

Speaking of the Jets, Darnold looked great.  He should have been our #1 pick (but time will tell)

I love these week 1 overreactions, like the people calling for Fitzpatrick to take over for Jameis in Tampa.

My assessment of Darnold vs. Mayfield is not based on an overreaction to one game

I donít understand the point in cutting him. Youíre telling me they couldnít get ANY value for him? They way this team just absolutely lights assets on fire is comical.

There are reportedly five teams interested in trading for him. Teams already calling the Browns, who league sources believe are far more likely to trade Josh Gordon than release him. Gordon is a vested vet and is not subject to waivers. So if he is cut, he is a free agent and can sign where he wants, for what he wants. A lot at stake.

I'm glad the Browns are doing this, as they did with Michael Kendricks, Corey Coleman and other screw-ups. No more being dumping ground and baby-sitters for the Dwayne Bowe's and Kenny Britt's of the NFL. This is going to be Josh Gordon's Chris Carter moment or he's going to die young. Time for some tough love.

Bill Belichick would have cut the guy years ago if he were with the Patriots!  The Browns look silly cutting him now because it's obvious they only kept him because of his ability.  The guy is deeply troubled and needs to work on getting well.
