It’s “Shane Falco” time in Cleveland…I mean Joe Flacco

The Browns are going with Joe Flacco as their starting quarterback headed into their battle against the Los Angeles Rams. It’s the same Joe Flacco that used to torture Cleveland fans with an 18-3 record overall, including a 10-1 lifetime record at Cleveland Browns Stadium. It’s too bad that Flacco is playing this game in… read more

Why the Cleveland Browns will Extend Deshaun Watson’s Contract

Yes, teams are overpaying quarterbacks like never before. No it is not business as usual. As a percentage of cap, Deshaun Watson is currently scheduled for a cap hit of 25% of the 2024 cap allowance. That’s way beyond the 17.2% the Chiefs paid Patrick Mahomes to win the Super Bowl last year. Prior to that no team had ever won the Super Bowl spending more than 13.1% of its cap allowance on a qb since the cap system was put in place in 1994.

Let’s Stop Flaccomania Before it Starts!

Stop hoping for the demise of the Browns young quarterbacks and praying for the installation of a slow, oft-injured old man as the Browns starter. Only the New York Jets think this is a good idea. Joe Flacco is not Aaron Rodgers Lite with all the great taste and half the calories. Dorian Thompson-Robinson gives the Browns the best chance to win.

Browns may be making a QB problem into a crisis

Do Taylor Swift and Kim Kardashian affect outcomes of NFL games?

It is reasonable to believe that future Hall of Famer Travis Kelce is playing with the utmost motivation, not to mention higher levels of adrenaline and male hormone than he has ever experienced before in his life! Perhaps some of that extra motivation and excitement is being passed on to his teammates as well. Maybe Ms. Swift has some cousins…!!?

What is wrong with Kevin Stefanski’s play calling?

The larger issue that has some validity is whether a offensive-minded coach like Stefanski can learn to depend on his defense at the end of the game rather than insisting that his inconsistent offense has to salt the game away. Maybe if a run does not work, you take 30 seconds off the clock and punt. Can he learn to trust his defense to hold the opponent to 40 yards in a critical situation and prevent a field goal? That is a much better question.
