    Guarantee the Bengals don't overlook the Chiefs now. They put up a hell of a fight against the Steelers. Pitt and Baltimore meet two of the next three games (who the hell made that happen???) to decide the division.

    Be happy you guys didn't. Dude made 30 million dollars that he should have to pay to Jared Allen, Kevin Williams, Pat Williams, and Karl Dunbar. He was never that good in Minny, just a product of a system where he was the only guy on the d-line that wasn't consistently double teamed. The guy the Vikings replaced Edwards with has outperformed him (10 more sacks over the 2 years) at 1/3 the price.

    Bringing up memories of BigJ with iBob and Ray Edwards (and PJIII, the bench-rider)...

    Cavaliers | Browns | Indians | Buckeyes | Red Hawks

    Am I missing something? How good do you think the Browns are right now? Beleive me, I hate everything about the Bengals, but c'mon.
    Our offensive line is better than theirs, our defensive line is better than theirs. The only positions they have a clear advantage are QB and WR imo.

    The Bengals are maybe a more talented team, but marginally.

    Aspiring to be slightly better yet still profoundly mediocre isn't progress or a winning strategy.

    They started ending the schedule heavy with divisional opponents to try to avoid teams resting players and maintain a top of the line product.

    There's a reason we should have went 2-0 vs. Cincinnati this year.

    We are not seeing the results right now, but we are building this team the right way. Start with the trenches, find a bruising running back, groom a physically gifted receiver, and hope the QB can tie it all together.

    Add the necessary defensive pieces through the draft, fill the remaining holes in FA, grab a quality coach, stick with him, and watch this team contend.

    There also is a realistic chance we finish with a better division record than them (I still think we get one Steelers game, particularly after they sleepwalked through last night's game and Pig Ben may be at half-speed at best for the trap game they have with us between the two Baltimore games.)
    Need help picking a new user name; I have jinxed two Browns executives in a row.

    I actually think Byron will start this weekend (which is guaranteed) AND next weekend, with Ben coming back for the second Ravens game. Steelers need to win two of the three to win the division. Realistically, I think they lose this weekend, and win the next two. Steelers have a relatively easy remaining schedule after Baltimore games (@DAL, v. SD, v. CIN, v. CLE) and I expedt them to win all of those games with Ben. The Ravens, on the other hand, have a tough remaining schedule ( @PIT, @SD, v.PIT, @WSH, v.DEN, v.NYG, @CIN)

    Steelers 11-5
    Ravens 11-5
    Bengals 8-8
    Browns 4-12

    So you think the Bengals are at their ceiling, development wise? I don't.

    I don't aspire for our end product to be the Bengals, but you said at no point over the last decade you would want to be like the Bengals.

    I would switch rosters with them right now is all I'm saying.

    I'm just not convinced that there is much more talent on their roster.

    AJ Green is a freak though.

    I honestly think Cincy and Cleveland are in better Positions as far as young Talent is concerned in this divison, but i dont know if Cincy will be able to develop there talent...That is what seperates us from B-More and Shitburgh they seem to get the most out of there players..And honestly not even being a Homer i think Cleveland is on the right track and are going to take this divison in the somewhat near future i just dont think that Weeden is the answer at QB IMO..

    Kaepernick is looking pretty good tonight, maybe SF should keep him as the starter
    Browns QB wish list
    1) Blake Bortles
    2) Teddy Bridgewater
    3) Johnny Manziel
    4) Jimmy Garoppolo
    5) Derek Carr

    Yeah, at least for tonight he is making that WC offense run much better than Alex Smith.

    If they were smart they would start him again next week. This could be one of those Tommy Maddox, Ben Roethlisberger situations.
