Also, Trent Dilfer really does have a serious hard-on for this org.

It's insider, so I'll cut and paste a couple of pieces here:
Quarterback: Brandon Weeden has talent, but Cleveland will want to play him right away. The concern is if he struggles early. He's older, but will they be patient with him if he takes time to adjust to the NFL game like most rookies? He doesn't have more physical experience, just years. Bottom line: This is a totally unsettled situation headed into 2012. -- Dilfer
Front office: Color me skeptical of the Browns' front office -- and this organization isn't exactly patient. Cleveland's front office is now directly tied to Weeden's future success. I can't say that is the perfect position to be in. -- Williamson
Coaching: Since rejoining the league, few teams have had turnover comparable to the Browns. So if things don't improve in the very near future, what are the chances that this current staff retains its jobs for the next few years? Brad Childress has taken over the offensive coordinator job. With Richardson now to lean on, expect Childress to run the ball much more than the Browns did in 2011. -- Williamson
