IMO, they are sticking to their guns.  That is, they believe in themselves & therefore believe Johnny will turn himself around.  They won't be dumping him for a nothing pick.

All evidence points to the contrary.

 

 

What evidence?

And this shows the danger that comes from trading down (something the Browns do entirely too often).

 

If they'd have stayed where they were, they'd have had at least three guys to pick from that would have obviously improved their team.

 

Now...?

 

Hmmmmmmm...

I personally don't think the Lions would give up a 2nd for Shelton even though he's a really good player at their biggest need.

But neither is it entirely off the wall.

 

I'm thinking the opposite.  Not enough for my Browns to move down that far.  Now, if it was 22 where we could draft a QB...

Well, almost a week after the fact, I watched the game.  A few things stood out. 

 

First, the production sucked.  WAY too many close-ups and unique camera shots.  SHOW ME THE DAMNED GAME!!!  (per usual the announcers make me wonder how they get paid -- they either stated the obvious or were wrong in their observations, not that that's unusual.)

 

The Browns defense misses Phil Taylor.  They also missed a lot of tackles.  Made me wonder if their hearts were in it.

 

While JF$ didn't suck as bad as was widely reported, his O-line did.  Most of the trouble came from the revolving door at the center position, though the rest of them contributed to some degree.  Manziel made a couple rookie mistakes, most notably the "chuck & duck" interception into the endzone.  Overall, though, he played okay.  Fix the center position, PLEASE!!!  (BTW, Mack can opt out after next season.)

 

The youth of the team is a BIG factor.  Cohesion is lacking.  So is character.  

 

Watched the game again today, 4-14-15.  I don't have much to add.  JF$ looked like a rookie. 

Did he look like he had no clues whatsoever?  No. 

Did he TOTALLY suck?  No.

Did he look like the guy that's gonna fix all our QB problems?  No.

Did the OL have problems?  You bet.

Did the defense allow a few too many yards on the ground?  Uhhhh, yep.

Were there WAY too many mistakes for this late in the season?  What do you think, MP?

 

It sure seemed to me that the coaches were restricted to following the owner's dictates.

It also seemed like we had a lot of disinterested players on the field.
