Brown's unsure about future of Cribs & Dawson

25 posts in this topic

If the Browns were to cut either of those guys, we should at least kick the tires. Cribbs is a former probowler and has some upside. Phil Dawson is one of the most consistent kickers in the league. Should be upgrades at either position.

Has Cribbs been good as of late. Not gonna lie, I haven't seen Cleveland much recently.

He's been suffering more from the QB situation and a scheme that focuses heavily on the ground game. But his returning has gone down a bit. I still think the guy has some skills that could help us at receiver.

Cribbs is a better returner than anyone we have on the roster right now. If he could help at WR then that's just extra... our STs suck ass.

No thanks to Cribbs, the kickoff changes have neutered him. Dawson is one of the best, but also one of the oldest Kickers in the NFL. Cleveland franchised him not long ago, dunno if they have any plans to let him go.

Cribbs hasn't done much in a while (receiving and returning)... Plus Rogers (ST Coach) said he's not giving up on Joe Adams. As for Dawson he'd be a two year rental (a damn good one at that) I'd rather have something more set in stone

    • Best suited for a rotational role
    • We just resigned Cody until 2020-21 and Frank will be on his rookie contract until 19-20. I think we don't need to worry about this at all. The biggest issue we have will be Kemba, but since Kemba and Dwight expire at the same time we will have plenty of money. That Howard trade really helped free up Miles 12m at the right time.  Now, as far as fit is concerned. Zeller just makes everybody look better. He will help out the second unit tremendously. I think he will be a great fit with Monk and Frank in that 2nd unit.  Teams go small, take out Dwight put Zeller in. Marvin not shooting well, but in Frank and team with Dwight or Zeller.  We now have options, something we didn't have last year. 
    • Depends on what the play calling looks like this year. I try to avoid judging individuals on the success of a group, unless it's the HC. If Shula's play calling looks like hot garbage like it has so far and Cam & co. are just making up for it like in 2015, then yes I'll continue to hate him. If the playbook (and situational playcalling) is indeed better then I'll be glad and start warming up to Shula.
