More Cleveland Browns news:

  • Former Cleveland Browns Linebacker Passes Away at 64 (Sports Illustrated) “Former Cleveland Browns linebacker Johnie Cooks has passed away at the age of 64. The news was confirmed by Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay on Twitter.”
  • Stop sleeping on Deshaun Watson and the Cleveland Browns (Spin Zone) “There is a reason the Cleveland Browns gave Deshaun Watson a $230 million contract which was fully guaranteed. Off-the-field issues aside, Watson is undoubtedly one of the top five quarterbacks in the league on his day, and he didn’t just forget how to play the position.”
  • No one is sleeping on the Cleveland Browns, they have too much to prove (Factory of Sadness) “Why would you think this is a team that is capable of being slept on? In four years as the Browns’ GM, Berry has not had one good draft.”
  • Browns sign CB Thakarius Keyes ( “Keyes (6-1, 202) is officially in his third NFL season out of Tulane. Originally drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in the seventh round (237th overall) of the 2020 NFL Draft, Keyes has played in 13 career games with one start between the Chiefs (2020), Indianapolis Colts (2021) and Chicago Bears (2021).”
  • Browns Predicted to Cut Ties With $5 Million Quarterback ( “Mond is not so much on the bubble as he is far on the outside looking in,” Cory Kinnan of USA Today’s Browns Wire wrote on Thursday, July 6. “With the selection of [Thompson-Robinson] in the fifth round of the 2023 NFL draft, and with Joshua Dobbs getting a fully-guaranteed deal to back up Deshaun Watson this season, there is no room for a fourth quarterback.”

Are people sleeping on the Browns or is no one sleeping on the Browns? That is the question for the comment section on this fine Friday after the July 4th holiday.

Editor’s Note: Yesterday, for example, you would have been involved in a great discussion about what matters for a QB including this thought from our Dawg Chow contributor:

See this is close to what I'm getting at. What's THE most important factor? 2nd most? And on down the line. All else being equal, I would have to put at the very top of the list: playing in an offense that gets mf'ers open. Seems like if you got that, you can make pretty much any other deficiency work. But this is my order:
  • Offense/scheme
    Running game
I'm trying to think of really relevant other factors and nothing seems obvious. I think of these five things, I'd probably weigh the imporance thus:
  • Offense/scheme: 32%
    Weaponz: 23%
    Protection: 22%
    Defense: 15%
    Running game: 8%
