4-0 in the preseason in unheard territory for the Browns. As a long suffering fan, I hope this "learning and grinding to win" translates to the regular season. I like what they're building through the draft and if Kizer can be "the guy" they have the following picks next year to not put toward a QB:

Rd 1
Rd 1 (HOU)
Rd 2
Rd 2 (HOU)
Rd 2 (PHI)
Rd 3
Rd 4
Rd 4 (CAR)
Rd 5
Rd 5 (KC)
Rd 6
Rd 6 (PIT)
Rd 7

NO WAY NO gets over ATL, CAR, OR TB for the #1 spot.

before I go any further on possible winners and wild cards I need to see a few games first...

Personally, I think the Panthers have the right stuff to get back to being a playoff team this year.

How is the battle for LA going ? I heard they are having trouble attracting bandwagon and getting good ratings.

If you don't win LA doesn't care. 2 teams moving there was nothing more than a media market driven move as well as a franchise value driven move--see LA Clippers sale.

And for that, two cities got damned. It is really unfortunate.

I'm happy to bash LA as much as anyone else, but you can't expect fans anywhere to pay NFL ticket prices for a team that wins 4 or 5 games a year.

For that matter, you can't expect 'em to stay home and watch bad teams on TV unless there's 2 feet of snow on the ground, which AFAIK has never happened in LA. 07-coffee3

PREACH.

If the Clippers never sold for a billion these moves would have never happened. There was a reason there hadn't been a team back in LA for 20+ years....
