Cleveland Browns Jerseys

Ready for 2009

Browns Camp Football
Well here we go again. 2009 is right around the corner. The Browns have made some decent moves with an average draft, a lot of off season moves, even though they’re all basically 2nd stringers, that have a chance to move into a starting position.

Looks as if Jerome Harrison is going to be a major player this year. That excites me due to the fact, that for the past 2 years I have been griping about getting Harrison the ball a lot more. Quinn will win the starting job. He is the face of the Browns now. The fans will tear down the stadium if he doesn’t start. I look for Quinn to have a decent year, even though he will be learning while he plays.

I think Lewis is far from being on his last leg. The offensive line did not open the holes for Lewis that they did the prior year. I call for at least 1,200 yards. Harrison finally gets a chance to show his stuff. He’s averaging almost 6 yards per carry for his 3 years with the Browns. How long has it been since a Brown pulled off a 72 yard run from scrimmage? Davis could be a good back up too.

The O line is looking good . Thomas, Steinbach and Mack should handle anyone that comes their way. The right side is a little more up for grabs. Tucker is always hurt and Shaffer is gone. Shaffer was always getting called for procedure. Womack and St Claire should be up for handling the right side.

On offense I would say the receiver corps is the biggest weakness. Edwards says he’s going to improve, but that’s yet to be seen. Stallworth only plays part of the time (if he comes back at all). Robiskie is in and needs to make an impact.

I don’t want to have to count on Patten and Furrey all year. Furrey had 2 good years, 06 and 07. Patten has 5 decent years but he’ll be 35 next month. Tight end looks decent with Royal, Rucker, Heiden and Madsen.

D line should be tougher with the pick ups of Coleman and Mosley. Linebackers should be improved too. Wimbley gets another chance and D’Qwell is solid in the middle, Hall gets another chance to prove his pass rush on the outside, Bell should get some time and Williams I hear, is going to get more chances to rush the QB. They also picked up Bowens and Barton in the off season.

I hear the D backfield is one of the stronger areas. McDonald and Pool have some experience along with Wright and Adams. We also picked up Poteat, Elam and Ivy. We should have a better year this year.

We need to get Cribbs signed. He deserves more money, if your going to compare salaries to performance. Get him signed, and we will be a solid 8-8 team this year. GO BROWNIES !!!!

    This team needs more impact players than are on the roster. Other than D’Qwell, Shaun Rogers and Joe Thomas, no one has really stepped it up that I can see. Alex Mack has the potential. Edwards is far too inconsistent and can’t seem to manage his head. I like Jamal; I know the rap is that he is “old” by RB standards, but he is the consummate pro — good on the field and as a mentor. I see this as a bubble year for Wimbley in that the arguments of his not being deployed to match his skills will probably evaporate after this year if he fails to excel; he might be a one-trick pony. I simply don’t understand the whole QB competition thing. BQ has been here for starting his third year. This guy should be heads and shoulders above DA, one would think, if he was as advertised and considering DA’s maddening penchant for having no touch on under- and check-down routes combined with some pretty lousy decision-making during games. Overall, this team has some talent here and there, but really needs to over-achieve to accomplish anything. This division still has Pittsburgh and Baltimore.

    I would be thrilled if Lewis ran for 1200 yards as you predict, but frankly 1000 is plenty for Jamal given his age and given the intention to give Jerome more carries.

    The biggest improvement anywhere on the Team this year will be at the offensive line.
