For DB Derrick Strait

We didn't need a DB in the draft huh?
Jimmy Williams anyone?

Based on what I saw from Wimbley in game one, I would make that same pick in hindsight.

Baxter and Cutch are down with injuries, otherwise the team wouldn't be in dire straits at the position.

Strait was a bad mother in college, but has so far looked like one of those corners that's just not quite quick or big enough to make the same impact at the NFL level. That said, he's the teams second bext corner right now in the absence of Baxter and Cutch.

Suggs ... good riddance. I'll never forget the one time I interviewed Browns FB Terrelle Smith. He basically told me that Suggs was the biggest bitch he's ever played with. Refused to play hurt, was a china doll, and that he simply didn't have the toughness to be a 25-30 carry back at this level.

With Droughns as the starter, and rookie Jerome Harrison from Wazzu looking locked in as the 3rd down back ... it's down to Willie Green, Jason Wright, and my boy Chris Barclay to duke it out for the 3rd RB spot ... as the team will carry two fullbacks.

A CB does you NO good if you are unable to get some pressure on the QB! The more pressure you can get up front, the less time your corners have to cover.

Suggs is a piece of garbage and I am glad they coule get ANYTHING for him, let alone a former Thorpe winner. Maybe Romeo can get something out of him that Mangini did not see.

Over/Under on Suggs' season ending injury is week 3.

Anyone who thinks Suggs was going to land us a starting caliber center is nuts. Running backs are a dime a dozen, noone will overpay for one, especially one with his injury history. Look at the position the Browns are in without a dependable #2 center coming into the year, why would another team put themselves in the same situation?(Bob Hallen does not count as dependable at this point, for obvious reasons)

I've always liked Suggs. This guy has great potential if he can stay healthy.
