Anyone ever notice how shit players often result in shit coaching/managing, and a great roster often results in great coaching/managing? Respected football men who haven't had any success with the Browns' shit rosters over the years: Romeo Crennel, Butch Davis, Chris Palmer; and further back, Bill Belichick, Bud Carson, Forrest Gregg.

Like Casey Stengel said after he left the Yankees and took over the hapless Mets: "I didn't get stupid overnight."

I doubt very seriously Romeo Crennel will have success in KC. He's a good coordinator and a bad head coach. Talent aside, Crennel never looked like he could handle the job.

And speaking of "looked like he could never handle the job," Shurmur always looks like a deer in head lights. He never speaks with passion or conviction. His body language says "I am overwhelmed," or "hey guys, I am doing the best I can." I want a leader who commands the attention of his troops and the media. Someone who inspires you to lay it on the line when the ball is teed up. My $0.02. Maybe the guys knows his stuff. Not sure he's a leader.

Hard to defend the Shurminator based on last season's performance. But totally not out of the realm of possibility that with a year's experience, a lot more O talent, and an O coordinator to ease his burden that maybe he won't be such a hot mess. The one thing I like about him is the team never quit on him last year, and they did on Mangini, Romeo, and Butch.

Ha! Duly noted. :cheers:

I still maintain that the WR's aren't the key to any team and can look much better/worse than they are depending on the QB play, but I think it's safe to assume they were a bad corps as far as NFL standards are concerned.

Josh gordon has the ability to be a big time receiver. He has all the physical tools to be a top WR in this league for many years to come. As long as he stays on the good side he will be a steal of the draft. You can read more about the browns on my site www.brownietheelf.com

What do you think of the Brownies giving up their 2nd round pick for Gordon now?
I liked the move then. I am liking it more now. No regrets for me. But we are so receiver-starved, that may be tainting my judgement.

Reminds you a little bit of Torrey Smith; limited route tree to work with, but undoubtedly fast and physical. Fun to watch these last two games.

He's got size, hands, is already productive while learning an offense & supposedly learning routes.

My uneducated guess is with what we know now, he'd be a 1st rounder if he were available in next yr's draft...

Because he is a RB, playing WR, with poor hands.

Which is tough, because you can see from the way he blocks and the raw athleticism that if he could stop with the stupid mistakes/drops, he'd be a hell of a player. The kind of WR that opposing teams have to gameplan for. He's huge and quick as hell, definitely gets more separation than anyone else out there, with a body to fight for the balls. He's just a headcase.

I think that if you could look at Torrey AFTER the success he had in year one and have a supplemental "auction" for his services, most teams would have given up a first for him. Gordon's stats are on par/better than his 1st round contemporaries in Wright and Blackmon, even with the under utilization of him in the first few games.

Right now, provided he continues to grow/learn in the first year and proves that the last two games isn't a fluke, he's a steal with a high second. Be interesting to see how frequently they throw to him when MoMass and Benjamin come back, considering A) Mass has better hands/more consistent routes, and B) Gordon is essentially playing the burner role that they drafted Benjamin for.

I'm just hoping to see continued consistency from him and Weeden; they've looked far more functional/capable in the last two games than I would have given either one of them credit for at the beginning of the year. Part of that is the pass pro Weeden has gotten recently....even a rookie can make some deft throws when he has a clean pocket and makes quick decisions.

You're losing me here; are we saying Gordon can't catch? Or did this become a discussion about Greg?
