Does Lewis play the role of Priest Holmes to Adrian Peterson's Larry Johnson?

Come back with Sears in the 2nd. Troy Smith or Trent Edwards in the 3rd. OG, DE, CB with the rest of the picks and hope you get lucky.And lets play ball. Pound the shit outta people with 8 Ball and APete. Trent will avoid mistakes, and complete about 110 passes to KW2 if he god forbid can stay healthy.

Wouldn't that signal Joe Thomas? Afterall those great Cheifs lines made Pro-Bowlers of LJ and Preist. Just a thought.

You are not going to bring a 40 year old, immobile QB, coming off one of the worst concussions, EVER, and have him stand behind this o-line.

There is no way the Browns are picking Joe Thomas Pup. None. Zero. Zilch. Mentally prepare yourself.
I think we need to move on with the o line hating. We now have an average oline, or we will once we add a guard via the draft. The big thing that killed our pass protection was Charlie holding the ball too long and scrambling away from the pocket and into the blitz. The sacks went way down with Anderson in there and that was before we added Eric Stein bach. The line will be fine.
I don't think so either. Joe Thomas will be there at 3, no need to smoke screen anyone.Hell, he'll probably be there at 10.

This is what happend every offseason. At the end f the season, a poll of Browns fans would have resulted in o-line being the biggest issue. But as we get further away, all of those memories of Sunday massacres fade away and some "skill" guy gets the hot and heavy. You will not win in the NFL with Schaefer and Tucker as your tackles. Never. Somehow signing one guard and "hopefully drafting another guard on day 1" is enough to fix the line. I don't buy it. I could be wrong, but if our QB gets killed again this year, maybe we will listen next year. If there was not a highly regarded tackle in the top 5, I would agree. Joe Thomas could give us an o-line, anchored on the left side for the next 7 years. Forget about it. We don't need to draft a starter for the left side of the line until 2014. Boy wouldn't that be nice?

Actually, if signing Green signals anything, it would set up drafting a young QB to sit and learn by watching a seasoned vet.We're setting up to get a QB.

Which of course logically equates to an imperative to pick an offensive tackle number 3 overall.
You do realize that applying slotting logic, this means roughly 17% of the team's cap space will go to OL, don't you?
Furls, if yo were beuiling that home, do you you want 17% of your home's equity in your.... basement infrastructure?

Forget, for one second, that we are picking third overall. Say we are picking 14th and the same choices are there. Then would you be ok with selecting the left tackle?
You do realize that applying slotting logic, this means roughly 17% of the team's cap space will go to OL, don't you? So? It is roughly 25% of your starting lineup.
Furls, if yo were beuiling that home, do you you want 17% of your home's equity in your.... basement infrastructure?I will take a stab for Furls here. Let's say this was your 5th house, and the first 4 crumbled from within due to poor offensive line play, er, foundation issues. Now I plan on being in house 5 for a long time. Then shit ya I want 17% going there.

Is that why the franshise player pay rate averages are equal for guards and quarterbacks? C'mon Pup, you can't possibly believe this line of thought.
You could always get crazy and pump appropriate resources in couldn't you? Not overspend, not underspend, so you can build a roof that won't turn that basment into one hell of a swimming pool?
You gotta show at Panini's, dude. Yer either gonna be the shot caller, big balled extraordinaire of the day, or get peanuts thrown at you.

So, with the addition of a second round guard, you are of the opinion that we are spending the appropriate resources. We are still counting on Ryan Tucker to play RT. Head, meet wall.
