We have pointed it out, but you refuse to buy into it. We get it, you are a positive person about your football team. My guess is you just haven't been a fan of the Panthers long enough for them to beat that out of you yet?
End of the day we have zero pieces on defensive or offensive line to build a team around. Moton is likely our best lineman, and he very well could be an average NFL right tackle. That's it.
Counting on McCoy, Irvin, Trai, KK, Paradis, etc...is just not going to get you anywhere in this league. We don't have a secondary at all, we are hoping that Shaq can take over for Luke and not skip a beat, and that neither Samuel or Moore miss any time....all the while hoping that Cam will both play out his contract and stay healthy.
It's unfortunately time to start over.
The Browns coaching staff doesn't exist yet. Technically neither does ours. Both are in the process of being rebuilt.
Is ours putrid? Don't know. They might be. We'll see.
But putting together a win-now strategy as a way of testing whether your coaching staff is good or not? No. That's a move that's worthy of the Browns management, and they are putrid.
