It's the same article that Mattvan posted in his thread proclaiming to be 100% Riley Cooper and Brandon Weeden-free (so Mattvan basically lied given th article takes numerous cliche'd shots at Weeden ;-) but it pretty much sums up my feelings about the preseason.

And pretty much about the regular season.

Football? You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means. This is, after all, Cleveland.

I've been waiting for the Browns edition. I think Magery is pretty hilarious. I always enjoy his nonsense.

Am I the only one in America who expects at least mediocrity from Weeden? Seriously, everything I read and hear is nothing but people assuming that we'll be just God awful. I get that this is Cleveland and this fan base has sort of lost its ability to hope, but geez, someone in the media even discussing the upside wouldn't be out of line.

Meh, that was pretty weak. Pretty much every joke he went after was obvious and has been done 10,000 times before.

Also no reason to throw the city under the bus too. That's watery sauce, Mr. Magery.

Agreed. I guess when you do that shit for all NFL teams you start reaching for the nearest ingredients.

Magary is a closest Browns fan.

He's admitted that they were his "AFC Team" growing up as a kid, and loved the "orange shoes" that the defensive backs used to wear. He's even said that if the Vikings moved, he'd like become a Browns fan.

Hence why he's never all that vicious on us.

Well, I think it's pretty clear and inarguable that Brandon Weeden is now a top 5, possibly top 3, NFL QB. We have finally found our answer.

Peeker owes everyone an apology.

I was just telling one of my friends that the speech therapist Bernie said he's been working with really has done a good job. I'm impressed.

He sounds more like Sly Stallone with his speech patterns now, so they must be using a similar method.

His ripping into players is refreshing. Donovan keeps cutting him off.

At the half and the Browns look pretty decent. That secondary is mighty suspect but it looks like we have a professional coaching staff at least.

Weeden looked good, but it will take more than a couple series in a preseason game for me to think some corner has been turned.

How do I know Mike Lombardi sucks? He thinks Brian Hoyer is good. What purpose does that guy serve? He doesn't have the physical tools to be a developmental guy. He doesn't provide veteran leadership. If he has to play a game, you're dead. I just don't see why you blow a 3rd QB roster spot on a guy with such little potential.

Mingo is crazy physically gifted.

The secondary is scary. Joe Haden's easily the best player, and even he doesn't scare opposing QB's.

This team is going to give up a lot of big plays.

Caught the last 2 minutes on the radio on the way home, and even though I know he won't be working regular season games, Michael Reghi is BRUTAL.

I've never seen a punt return TD with so few members of the opposite team in the frame.

Run game still looked bad, and that had nothing to do with Trent Richardson being out. Hard to gain much ground when your O Line doesn't get a push. They pass block pretty well, but run blocking - ick.

That jump that Quentin Groves got on his sack was impressive. The OLB's should all be pretty effective.

I thought all three of the QBs threw the ball well.

I'll refrain from commenting on Hoyer's leadership abilities as I have absolutely no clue on that. The guy hasn't been here long enough to look lost or puzzled or completely shell shocked and IMO he didn't last night either. I find him much more appealing as 3rd QB than Huggable McCoy or Thaddeus Lewis or SinceIdontgiveafuck Wallace.

What I liked was there was (for lack of a better way to describe it) a crispness and a focus on details for the entire team. There were few penalties (I do recall a backup LT still in his 3-point stance five seconds after a snap late in the game), there appeared to be organization and they looked like they enjoyed the pace and the style they were playing with.

It was nice to see, even if FakeGame1, the Browns as the more organized, disciplined and enthusiastic/aggressive group.

Good for Chud. He's ahead of Shurmur already in that regard.
