I'm already sick of hearing the Browns as favorites to win the AFC North

    I dont see the point. NFL doesnt let talent play defense anymore. Especially the back end of the defense. Steelers have a scheming issue that a coach can not implement on a consistent basis week in and week out.

    If the NFL allowed defense to be played the way it was in the Super Bowl, NFL defenses would still exist, but they dont during the regular season.

    All the more reason Pittsburgh will likely trade up to get a linebacker. That being said though, since trading away Jabrill Peppers with a deep safety class, to me, that indirectly telegraphs their priority somewhat. I still would not rule out corner or offensive tackle for Cleveland either.

    Better get used to it. Look at the rosters of all AFC North teams.

    If I remember right we the Steelers could not beat them the first game. Never underestimate your opponent.

    The more people hype the Browns the higher the chance they implode this year.

    Nah..I would rather put that kind of money on a blue chip stock that pays me a dividend.

    If I remember right, the Steelers did beat the Browns last season, while the Browns did not beat the Steelers.

    For most teams, having a new HC, OC, and DC with a young team would have analysts become more conservative about their predictions. The potential of a boat load of draft picks makes them ignore the likelihood of the team being very inconsistent.

    I'd have no problems with the Browns becoming competitive (but still a bit behind the Steelers), and have the Ravens become the doormat of the division.

    Living in the Cleveland area is interesting when it comes to sports. Listening to their sports talk radio is better comedy than Eddie Murphy and Richard Pryor combined. Even the hosts are completely unrealistic. They place zero value on the fact that they have no leadership, no proven coaching, nothing but a losing culture, and a stench that will take years to scrub off. They are convinced they will win the division and probably the super bowl. They will be suicidal when they go 7-9 or worse.
