What would be your reaction if Chud does better than Rivera next season?

I came on to read the different thoughts on chud since he was your O.C. and now our head coach. I seen this post and laughed and had to respond.

So when you say unstable line do you mean the one that sent 2 to the pro bowl 2 yeras ago, with center alex mack, and perenial probowler left tackle joe thomas? Plus schwartz that we drafted last year to sure up the R.T. spot. Btw I just looked up the best O-lines in the nfl and cleveland is 5th. We do need a gaurd too sure up the interior, but o line is not our problem. D line while not full of house hold names that is fine also. LB is a different story and i would give you that we need OLB, CB, and a passing down edge rusher.

I would take richardson over any RB on your roster in a heartbeat. The guy played with fractured ribs nearly all season missed all of training camp and still almost had 1000 yds. Has D.Williams lived up to the 40+ million contract yet?

I like what cleveland has for WR also. Gordon went through a stint in 2011 with the dropsies but turned that around this year. And Gordon who didnt even play football in 2011 looked very good all year. So with another year to gel and weeds getting away from the dreaded predictable Shurmer WCO, and having chud and turner I can see a big turn around this year for those guys.

Lets look at your cap space while Claytons numbers are said to be rough he has you almost 12 million in the red. not sure who you guys have for F.A. to sign, but cuts will be made. Steve Smith is set to make 6.25 million this year and turning 34 this spring do you keep him or Trade him while he still has value or cut him? (i would trade him). Or what about De. Williams? Is he going to live up to that 8.2million this year or get benched again for stewart? So i wouldnt be looking at Carolina making any big FA moves or signings.

Now the browns are set at 2nd best in cap space with over 48 million to spend and the only notable FA are cribbs and he may be back. He hasnt steped up in the wr position and may be too expensive to be soley a special team player after the new kickoff rules. And Dawson will be back. They are not going to find anyone that is money like he is.While I hope they don't go over board on FA there are some names that I would like to see the browns snag.

So is it out of the question that the browns will have a better record than Carolina while playing in a tougher division than you? I can see it.

Your team somehow managed to make the Falcons overpaying for the 2nd best WR in the 2011 draft look like a steal. You gave up Julio Jones to select Phil Taylor, Brandon Weeden, and Greg Little.

God bless you.

Would not surprise me.

If Chud gets a vet QB like DA and pounds the rock with Richardson maybe they win 8 games.

We could easily win 7 games again next year.

I will spam variations of the "At least we're not the Browns" meme for the entire year.

I wouldn't be surprised.

What would be fun watching would be the endless threads on how Cleveland's roster is so much better than ours and that's why they are winning. Or that it was just in the weak AFC. Etc.

Don't get me wrong, I wanted Chud gone and do not believe he is the genius some claim he is. My statements are instead grounded in how weak I perceive our staff to be. In my opinion, we have one of the worst coaching staffs in the league.

I doubt he wins 12 games.. But with that staff I'm expecting big things from Chud. Honestly I did not think he would have done this well.

I was supportive of Rivera... But after the Shula hire I've lost faith in him. I hope it works out and if it doesn't I hope there are good candidates available next year

Ok... First off I respect your defense, overall it's pretty good and like you've said it's missing just a couple of pieces. Your offensive line is very strong as well. For your recievers I like Gordon and Greg Little your TE's are good as well.

The big question now is who's your QB? Ryan Mallett? Weeden?. When you could've had Ryan Tannehill and Julio Jones.

I like how you're bragging about Richardson. If you watched ANY Carolina game you would see how misused DWill, JStew, and Tolbert were. It was absolutely pathetic to have all that talent in the backfield and barely use them. So if I were you I'd be begging/praying (whatever makes you happy) that Norv is calling the plays instead of Chud.

As for trading Smitty you're crazy... I wish you good luck this season AND GOOD DAY SIR!!!

It's pretty likely.

Chud is assembling a staff with tons of experience.

Rivera turned down Jackson and April for Shula (lol) and Rodgers (LOLOL).

Not with Weeden at QB.....

My bad. I wasnt serious.

I am 99% certain that The Browns will not be better than the Panthers this year though.

Might not have a choice....they just spent a first round pick on him last year. Tough to let a new HC immediately go back to the well for another
