RG3 will not be a Cleveland Brown. Don't get me wrong, I would love to have him on my team I think a real good talent at QB will do a lot for this team and the media attention will be a low key but big thing in changing the losing mentality in Cleveland. But it just won’t happen. The Browns need a first round talent at QB and we haven't had one since Tim Couch (because screw Brady Quinn), but unlike 1999 there are actually supporting pieces on this team to allow for a rookie QB to succeed.
With my personal evaluation of McCoy, I am close to considering him to be "not the guy" just because of his lack of arm strength, but that doesn't matter because my name is not Holmgren. Against DBN's collective opinion, the book is still very out on McCoy. We tend to forget that there was no offseason, new coaches and noo talent on offense. I still contend that Tom Brady couldn't make the Browns a top 10 offense. I know if McCoy plays next season and plays well, we will all be back on the McCoy wagon, but back to Griffin. I'm only 19 so my years of seriously following the Browns don't go much further back than Romeo and Savage, but the biggest thing I feel about this new regime is H&H's attitude. They have a cool calm and collected aura as the guys running the team. I highly doubt these two guys will do anything drastic or do anything on a whim for this team. That includes trading up for RG3. I know its way early, but the dude is gonna go second and someone is going to over pay for him. The price will be waay too steep, I would part with the second round pick to move up two, but not both first round picks and a 3rd and 4th round or whatever the asking price may be. The cool calm and collected leaders won’t put all their eggs in one basket when we need so much more. See ya RG3.
I think a football team should use the draft and offseason to attempt to fix each hole on the team and at the end of the season and find new holes. Since RG3 goes at 2, the Browns at 4 have their choice of Blackmon and Richardson and I would be happy with both. I would go Blackmon at 4 and sign a FA WR like Stevie Johnson, someone with speed to get past the secondary. Along with Little and Cribbs, Bam WR problems solved. With that second first round pick find a right tackle and pick up line depth in the later rounds and free agency. Boom line problems solved. Pick up a linebacker with the second round pick, D end in free agency, pick up a corner like the FA from Nawlins move Sheldon Brown to safety. Bang defensive problems solved. Take a third round QB to push McCoy. Resign Hillis, hope Hardesty doesn't suck, and remember we have Brandon Jackson. Other random noise, offensive problems fixed. Draft the rest of the draft for depth, best player available.
So now we are back to McCoy, the book is still out on him and he'll get another year to start. But we still need another QB behind him to A push him, and B possibly replace him. Tannehill? Weeden? No thanks. There is a possibility that H&H have tabs on a backup QB elsewhere in the league. No, not Flynn, but maybe Mallet (hey you can pay him in coke), any other names ring a bell? The main reason I'm writing this post is to see DBN's opinion on Arizona State's QB Brock Osweiler. He is not a complete package, he needs work, but [with McCoy] isn’t this what we are looking for? He is like 6'8 or 6'9, something that makes him special. I don’t know much about him but I'm intrigued by his size and via some YouTube, he has good arm strength. Watching that rapist from that shitcity east of Cleveland twice a year, his size is something all teams should crave and if the browns could pick up their own version, I'd love it. So DBN, what do you think? Am I crazy, right, wrong? Does anyone know anything about this ASU guy? Do you know of any other backup QBs in the league that H&H may have their eye on?
