Did you watch the Washington Commanders/Philadelphia Eagles game last night? Have you noticed the young quarterbacks lighting up the league? Jalen Hurst, Tua, Herbert, the list goes on and on.
The Cleveland Browns gave up 3 first round draft picks and 200 million for a QB that hasnt played in two years. I would hate to be the executive that lobbied for that deal if it all falls apart.
First of all, it's an understatement to say they overpaid. They bought a quarterback few others were willing to take and the team that traded him acted like they hit the lottery, not the Browns.
The irony of it, they are paying 10 million to Baker Mayfield to play for Carolina in an agreement they would only take if the Browns paid most of his salary.
The Browns dealt Case Keenum, a quarter back who led the Vikings to post season two years ago. The company line is Jacoby Brisset is a place holder in anticipation of Deshawn Watson's return. The Browns are now 3 and 6 and face Buffalo and few experts give them a shot a beating the Bills.
The Browns must have coined the phrase "stuck on stupid". Instead of letting Mayfield start until Watson get here, they paid him 10 million not to play. Could Mayfield have done a worse job than Brissett? It's possible but it's a lost season anyway.
I can only draw the conclusion that the organization is incompetent, and you know what else, no one's talking about the Browns and that's the worst thing that can happen in a popularity contest. How much will Browns fan take before they find a new team or past time.
I have little interest in the franchise. after years of collecting first round draft picks, they seemed almost inept on the field versus Tua on Sunday. It wasn't just Jacoby Brissett, it was a complete collapse. Two of the top running backs in the league and they total 107 yards. You have to wonder how fans watch or listen to this team week after week.
I'm still stuck on the Browns trading the only quarterback to lead them to Post Season since Kelly Holcom and not only did they trade Mayfield and pay 10 million for the privilege, but they also then had to hire a journeyman quarter back to take the snaps until Watson returns. For clarification refer to my earlier remark "stuck on stupid"
