  1. Possible but I would not count them out. Bills defense is really good and Allen seems to find ways to score. He did beat the Jets once and then lost by only 4 once so I would imagine splitting is possible. Miami is tough to gauge. I could see a sweep as you say or a split. It really depends on Rosen and how quickly he develops. Also, I never alluded to division matchups being tough...until now. Division matchups generally are tough simply because you play the same team twice and because division rivals tend to be motivated knowing those games have a heavier implication than other games....and of course rivalry. I cannot speak to your division as it has been consistently NE with the leg up but even then,....the division games were often times very close. Its a real thing.
  2. I do believe that is a complete fallacy. Dorsey hand picked Kitchens and it was in part based on familiarity with the team and the offensive output under his coaching (the offense went from bottom 10 to top 10 virtually overnight). Gregg also had a very genuine interview for the HC job. There were other outside candidates who were also interviewed. Kitchens won the job primarily due to how the offense clicked under him. What is not known but speculated is the Browns initially were considering keeping everything intact but strong rumors of teams being interested in Kitchens for their OC roles and/or possible future coaching jobs was putting pressure on the Browns to make a decision on him. Either promote him or lose him. They are gambling that Kitchens is more valuable to keep than Gregg is to lose. Would not suprise me if Gregg was offered to stay as DC but pride would not allow it (considering it would be a demotion). Gregg and Kitchens by all accounts appear to be friends. Nothing but good things have been said through interviews about the other so I really doubt the comment was a shot fired directly at Williams. I believe it is basically his experience being at Alabama moreso. Also, if anyone wants to get an idea of Kitchens coaching,...there is a "Building the Browns" series on youtube. It is quite good IMO. Kitchens has yelled a bit when he got frustrated with players not adhering to their responsibilities but at the end of the day he trusts his coaches to do their job. The "football" coach is a rah rah coach that tries to push the players to give 100% and then they have technical coaches that focus on routine and polishing up technical aspects such as positioning, when to break and where......leverage.......how much space to give based on package. When and how to close....etc. The Browns are media darlings simply because they have went from the worst franchise in football to a respectable team to play on sunday. Add that Baker has a personality that shows on camera....he is a media dream. That is the pro and con with him. You know what you get but sometimes what you get isnt what you want and sometimes it is. His absolute desire to win at all costs is awesome. His ability to get his teammates to believe in him and themselves is pretty rare (he did this at OK too,...all the players absolutely loved him). He is there for his teammates (yes I know some will say he isnt there for Duke but that was out of context,...he just wants it not to be a distraction....ideally handle it away from the camera). Overall, there is little doubt that Dorsey has built ANOTHER strong team. There is little doubt that if he leaves the Browns, he will be in such high demand that he may be the highest paid GM in the NFL. He is the primary reason KC was in the AFC Championship game and the reason the Browns went from 0-16 to 7-9 overnight.....He is the reason they traded Kizer for Randall last year too (another brilliant move IMO).
  3. Lame Jets hype? I dont understand that statement. Artificial hype would be if you dont believe in Sam Darnold. If you do, there is absolutely no reason to not be excited. Year 2 for a qb is usually the year they truly start feeling comfortable out there and making strides. He has already shown plenty of flash in the games he played to see he has the capability to be the franchise qb. If I were a Jets fan I would be very excited. There appears to be some deficiencies that need to be addressed but some already have been. Robby needs to take that step forward or concede it to another wr willing to be the man because Sam could use some reliable weapons out there. Getting one of the best RB's in the game certainly did not hurt your chances either. I do believe it will be a dogfight in the division though as I think all 3 teams behind the Patriots improved with their offseason aquisitions and 2 of the 3 having 2nd year qbs that showed tremendous strides as the year unfolded. I honestly think all the 1st round qbs from the last draft are going to turn out great.....even Lamar if he truly dedicates himself to improving his passing game. I know some here hope Im wrong (and I may be) but I think this last draft is the "changing of the guard" sorta speak. I think the Jets should have a tremendously improved year. It may not show up in many more wins (or it may) but the product on the field will show they are going to be playoff team sooner than later. I do feel that way about Buffalo too. So consider me one of the people buying into the hype. Yes there will be growing pains (as there generally is with FO changes) but WIlliams is a no-nonsense coach and should get the best out of that group. My prediction is 8-8 +/- 1. I dont think it will be easy but I do think you will enjoy sundays a lot more. Truth be told, Im a huge advocate of this last qb draft. So much so, I never understood why Arizona gave up on Rosen so quickly. Kyler may be fantastic and worth the bold move but Rosen never truly had a chance. I believe in all 4 of them and think the Jets got a great qb to get excited about. JMO.
  4. When the trade was first announced before the draft even came around I thought it was a brilliant tactical move. I understand based on reading the post here a lot of people do not like the GM and think he lucked into Darnold. Even if I did not like a GM and he made that trade I would think that was a brilliant move simply because it is a mathematical chess move. Sure there is risk but that was obviously weighed out. I would not even care if he had Darnold or Baker ranked higher or even Allen but there is little doubt that moving up to three gave the Jets significant advantage over other quarterback-needy teams. The Browns just sucked enough to not have to worry about it but had they been in the Jets position at 6 I would have been thrilled with them moving up to 3 knowing that the logic behind it. When people started laughing at the Jets overpaying I was thinking why is it called overpaying when they are trying to secure the hardest position in football to secure. Screw any draft chart I can promise you any quarterback-needy team would give up picks knowing how 2018 played out for any of those 3 quarterbacks. I guess what I'm saying is the Bills, the Dolphins, the Cardinals and likely a few other teams not mentioned would have easily given up that much if they knew how the quarterbacks would play their rookie year. So while some might feel like the Jets overpaid and others might feel the GM lucked into getting Darnold I feel that was a brilliant move and there is no such thing as over paying if you land your franchise quarterback
  5. As for Hunt.....a lot of Cle fans are not happy for obvious reasons. I really dont know how remorseful Hunt truly is and as a person I can say I dont think he is an upstanding person but the NFL has allowed the likes of Jim Brown to play and turned a blind eye to it for years. The NFL is a business though and Dorsey made a calculated low risk business move much the same way Cincy did with Mixon and other teams have done over the years. I dont have daughters and so my logic may be viewed as bias because I truly want a good product. I just hope Dorsey is right that Hunt is not going to repeat this behavior. I know his family is basically a posterchild for setting dictates character but people do rise above that all the time. I pray he hilds Hunt accountable and wont hesitate to release him at the first sign of reverting to that behavior. The reason I believe Hunt chose Cleveland and at such a team friendly deal is because thats where he is from and wanted to play and also because of his relationship with Dorsey prior. This is just an educated guess based off the small amount of information out there.
  6. Really like your thought process. I find it really exciting to see all this young talent enter the NFL over the last few years. I feel qb play specifically was really lacking outside of a few exceptions for years. Id say since 2016 the qbs drafted are really fun to watch. Nothing wrong with Brady, Brees, Rodgers and Roethlisberger and perhaps a few others but the product overall was lackluster. The haves and have nots appear to be changing minus Indy who lucked (no pun intended) into a great situation without dealing with time of bad or mediocre qb play. We dont know how the 2018 class will fare yet but it looks very promising. Goff, Wentz, Trubisky, Mahomes, Watson, Mayfield, Darnold, Allen, Rosen (I believe in him) and Jackson are really exciting to think about in terms of the near future of the NFL. Just my .02
  7. Perhaps I came across brash. That was not my intent. I did read the post I quoted and honestly was not able to infer what you claim it said 100 times (thats a lot of times I missed in that singular post). What I did infer is that you felt the reasoning of douche was not a logical one and therefore assumed it must mean he actually prefers Mayfield but is instead creating a narrative to justify not preferring him. I get it. My comprehension level is at least on par with the average 5th grader. I just dont understand why you feel a person cannot use personality as a logical reason to prefer one player over another. I imagine teams weigh this aspect when drafting as the poster did with his belief. Mayfield isnt for everyone. I apologize if I came across as petulant in my first post. Personally I like All the 1st round qbs a lot and think they are special, including Rosen.
  8. browns fan. just stop. i dont get how you can accurately project how a fanbase would feel about a hypothetical situation. i personally think all the teams outside of Arizona who drafted a qb in the 1st love who they have and Rosen being undetermined due to the circumstances being so rookie unfriendly. we can all play the what if game but if life has taught me anything its that one factor changing leads to another. in other words Baker may not have had the same success or Darnold or Allen ....well maybe Rosen would like a mulligan. i think Jets fans are very happy with Darnold and Bills fans with Allen just like Browns fans are with Mayfield.. Let the kids play and take over the league. its exciting to see all this qb talent over the last few years.
  9. Most of that improvement is due to philosophy change with kitchen as OC. the time baker holds the ball is shortened as is his dropback steps. before the change baker was being hit at an alarmingly high rate.
