Tampa Bay because it is nice and sunny down there and a couple years of GM money before I got fired tucked away for retirement would do me good. Busch Gardens is there too...

Detriot, because Millen is the only thing holding them back, and if I were GM, Millen would be OUT. I could do damage with their wideouts, and they have solid DTs which helps me to build my Dline, draft Joe Thomas for the OLine, and rebuild.

Cleveland, they have the right idea going but just need some pieces to fall into place

Hm, I went with the Lions... no real reason only than they are my 2nd favorite team in the league.

Honestly, I would pick Oakland. They have a very good defense already, talent at WR and the #1 pick. Their line has talent and just needs some consistency on the coaching front and it could turn out good. Their only real question mark is quarterback. While that is a huge hole to have, I still think they have the most pieces in place as of now.

I really like the direction Detroit is going. Martz' offense will produce, especially if their O-Line stays more healthy than they were last year. Meanwhile, Marinelli is a rush end away from completing his transition.

Homer thoughts aside, this one isn't even close. Those top 3 teams are consistent laughing stocks in every which way. The Raiders only recently though. The Bucs just won a Super Bowl 4 years ago, in case you have forgotten Xiomera. They won their division 2 years ago too, over the Super Bowl favourite Panthers. I don't care what our draft pick is, we don't even deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as those teams.

I will go with Tampa, mostly because they have a stable organization. It doesn't hurt that they will be getting Calvin Johnson, most likely. I still would pick them even if one of the other three teams would be likely to pick him.

IMO The browns are the only team on that list that are on a small rise so i would take them. Tampa is probably my next choice.

If they don't win now, all their positive momentum goes away. Which is why I am hesitant with them and Tampa Bay.

Arizona, Detroit, and Cleveland are cursed. Tampa Bay is an old team, so you'd have to rebuild a lot. Oakland has plenty of talent on that team. I'd go with them.

I like what Cleveland is doing. Give them AP and I think they could be very good. Too bad their division is pretty sick.

Yea i would take A.P. too but i see a huge bust in Adrian and i would rather take Alan Branch and sign short term solution at RB, some1 like Corey Dillon and take a RB next year when the class of RB's will be much stronger.

Logic says the Browns.

But history says "STAY AWAY. STAY AWAY".

I'd go with the Lions. I'm sure with a semi-competent GM, that team wouldn't drown in inefficiency.

Cleveland. I would have no interest in sharing power with Gruden, and the other two aren't even an option in my mind.

History doesn't say stay away from the Lions?

You must not know the history of the NFL that well. The Browns are a proud franchise.
