    No matter who they have at QB they'll always be competing for the #1 draft pick the following year LOL.

    If Seattle loses Wilson, they're a 100% guarantee to get the #1 pick. Perhaps the team that can least afford to lose their #1 QB.

    With the talent we have on the roster there's no way we'd lose all 16 games.

    LOL far from a guarantee. Austin Davis is your backup? Your OL is trash. 1 win without Wilson would be optimistic.

    Our OL is better this year than it has been in year's past. We also upgraded the RB position by taking Rashard Penny. Austin Davis knows the system very well. He's a serviceable backup to Wilson.

    Austin Davis is 3-7 as starter. Wasn't even in the league in '16. In '15 he started 2 games for the Browns. There's no way he can be called a serviceable backup.

    I was talking about predictions. The NFL is so hard to predict because of the impact of injuries, especially the QB

    Will the Browns be able to repeat as preseason champions?

    You're correct it's very difficult to predict. But teams that prepare for the inevitable injuries by putting together better balanced rosters and not overpaying fair better.

    They do. So who then has an injury-proof roster?

    Look back at teams who have won all 4 preseason games. How did they fare in the regular season. I rest my case.

    You weren't even making a case.

    Also, Austin Davis is the worst backup QB in the NFL. Your OL is still trash, and your aging defense is fracturing. Seattle is likely getting a top 10 pick next year regardless. If Wilson goes down, it's a locked in #1.

    I think over the course of a 16 game season on Seattle he'd go something like 5-11. Its quite bad but not 0-16 or 1-15.

    We might as well have a new OL with new coach Mike Solari. It was trash the past couple years under Tom Cable. We need the best 5 guys in front of Russell Wilson we just need the right coach to get the very best out of the guys blocking for him. Our "aging defense" is still right up there as one of the best in the entire league.

    Nah, it's not. Outside of the top 10 in both total D and PPG allowed, and you're losing important pieces. The full rebuild is maybe a year away, if that.

    Actually, I'm going to agree with Across the Field here. I think the defense takes a step back for the first time in awhile. There are some good pieces but if they don't have Earl Thomas then I think they might have some issues.

    Seattle's offense should be good, though
