Maybe the blimp is over the Super Bowl, maybe it isn't, the dream somehow focused on other things.

He becomes the Browns' OC due to his close ties with, well, everyone in the org. He takes over playcalling duties. He lures DeShaun Jackson to Cleveland, who Philly lets walk b/c of bad blood and the Browns pay significantly more than other teams who are wary of his 'tude. Browns and Hillis kiss and make up and ink a 2 year deal (not a huge fan of Hillis, but the FA market for RB's sucks). They pick up Carlos Rogers from SF to take Sheldon's place. And, sadly, they have to go with aging but still functional Kareem McKenzie at RT for a few years b/c they don't have enough draft picks/cap space to fill every gap in one offseason. With the #4 overall pick, they select RG3. With the 2nd pick of the 1st Rd, #18, they take LB Zach Brown from NC. They take Whitney Mercilus, DE from Illinois, in the 2nd Rd.

The problem I see at this point with trying to draft a Blue Chip QB is this: If you are RG3 or Matt Barkley, why would you want to come here?If either of those guys ended up getting his name called when the Browns step up to the podium, I wouldn't be surprised (or offended at this point) if they pulled an Eli Manning.This place kills QB prospects with piss poor management and coaching. Again, that all goes back to ownership.I'm sure Mike Holmgren will shrug his shoulders all the way to the bank to cash Randy Lerner's checks after we hit the reset button again.

He can suck a dick if that's the case.Seriously. Fuck him.

TO BE ENTERTAINED. To be able to go into games against the Inbred and Rats and be like "You know what, they may have a slight edge to them, but we have a shot""Here we are now, entertain us".

I know that gambling/booze/strippers makes any situation better, but my question is whether or not it will make a significant positive impact.
