    Now that the Browns draft is over I'm not too happy with the results. I see why Holmgren was ranked as the 27th best GM while he held that job in Seattle.
    After trading for Sheldon Brown CB was not that great a need, yet they still drafted Joe Hayden CB, Florida. Earl Thomas S, Texas I thought would have been a better choice. Safety was a more pressing need. Then they would not have needed to reach for TJ Ward S Oregon in the second round. Or cover themselves by drafting another safety in the 5th round Larry Asante from Nebraska. D-Line depth and pass rush was a huge need especially after trading Wimbley, yet that was not addressed until their last pick in the 6th round Clifton Geathers DE S Florida. He's big with some up side put raw and most likely will not help this year.
    Now on to Quarterback, I'm not a big fan of Colt McCoy. Quick name the last Big 12 quarterback to start for 2 full years in a row in the NFL. Give up? Lynn Dickey. The Big 12 went from the wishbone to the spread and doesn't produce NFL caliber QBs. I would have much rater had the kid from Fordham John Skelton.
    Apparently the Brown's philosophy is to throw as many bodies as possible at a position and see what sticks. This year it's the secondary, hopefully next year will be the front 7.

    Well, technically, Lynn Dickey was a Big 8 quarterback.

    As a Browns fan, all I hope for is to get some wins and make the critics bite their tongue, and the only way this team will ever earn respect from critics, and its own fans, is to beat every team they face. And hope the referee's give us a fair shot at winning games, and not call bogus flags.
