Psst - We may have a QB and this team fights like mofos.
There were certain things that were a little disappointing, such as the constant blitzing and leaving Eric Wright exposed when it's already been proven that he can't hang out there in single coverage and be effective. I thought the play calling early on, when they were trying to protect McCoy by using the wildcat, didn't make much sense. I think the fact that Brian Robiskie is essentially useless is disappointing. I think it's amazing that neither of Harrison's hits garnered a penalty.
Umm... Wright is no better when they aren't attempting to pressure the QB.
They can either give QBs and receivers all day to get loose and find seams everywhere or they can create pressure (theoretically) and leave Wright exposed for less time (theoretically). The issue is not in them wanting to create pressure. The issue is that they don't have the talent to do it w/o selling out on the blitz and that Eric Wright is human waste on the football field.
A novel approach might be to try and upgrade your DL and your CB position. Hiding it does you know good. Teams are going after Wright regardless of down and distance and regardless of who is coming on a blitz.
Yah you might be looking at 2 straight DB's in the first rd, given the state of the secondary it would be tough to pass on a Patrick Peterson this year, particularly if A) We can't get into position to get Luck or B) The browns decide they don't have to Draft a QB (scary)
Browns might have some real tough choices to make in the draft next year.
If you aren't going to go QB, You might be looking at Green, Peterson, or Darius, all major talents at positions needed BADLY by the browns....
