  • I still have faith in Benson, but you're not sold on him... I think Brown could be a very good backup and someone to push Benson. And I think with him being in a bit of a reduced role, he can stay healthy for at least the majority of the season.

    • I'm not sold on Andersen at all. The guy has some serious weapons around him. People talk like he has no talent around him.

      Edwards is a superstar. Winslow is one of the more under rated players in the league. He is a huge weapon.

      And the OL is a lot better than advertised. I would not shell out a first round pick for Anderson. I would happily give up the 2nd though.

      Draft an OL in round 1; trade the 2nd for Anderson.

      • It's not whether or not I'm sold on Benson. It's more, if Benson is hurt or struggles, will Brown be able to push him and step in? I have high doubts about that.

        As for Derek Anderson, the Browns hold all the cards on that due to his RFA status. I'd be surprised if they didn't hold firm. Now ... I could see a situation where, if Crennel leaves and Savage gets to pick another coach, maybe they cave and take a 2nd this year instead of a first this year, but it would likely require high future assets, perhaps a future 1st.

        That said, all speculation on my part, though.

        • If Courtney Greene comes out I wouldn't mind him in the 2nd or 3rd... either him or Josh Barrett are the best options at SS in the draft for us, IMO.

          • I think this is a bad year to need a safety in the draft...

              It's a good thing we don't need a safety in the draft

                I've been saying the exact same thing. He's great when he's healthy. They key word is WHEN. Wasting money on another guy who hasn't been healthy 1 full season is a waste. If he could stay healthy I'd be estatic. He's not and this worries me given our current injury prone runningback who lacks motivation.

                  Smokey he can't even stay healthy backing up Lendale White. What makes you think this is going to change with Benson? He's never been healthy his entire career. He even had injury concerns in college.

                    Briggs hit that mark not too long ago, actually.

                    If I were Angelo, I'd be more concerned with making my offense more consistent and effective than "more dynamic." Heck, the Bengals offense and Lions offense are dynamic, doesn't mean they're all that good.

                    • Which of these SS prospects would be best for us?

                      Nic Harris
                      William Moore
                      Courtney Greene
                      Craig Steltz
                      Jamar Adams

                      • Nic Harris has a ton of upside and the OU ties are there.

                        • Because, you know, Grossman makes the offense more dynamic.

                          By that JA quote I hope that means Turner is gone.

                            How does he not? There's a difference between good and dynamic. There are things that Grossman can do that Griese or Orton cannot. There's no question about that.


                            Nobody cares about your stupid fantasy team.

                                I like the idea, we want dynamic offense, he can give us one. My only thing is that unless we have a QB that makes minimal mistakes, we will have the same problems that the Lions had.
