any update on Ward/


"First down inside the 10. A score here will put us in the Super Bowl. Cooper is far to the left as Njoku settles into the slot. Moore is flanked out wide to the right. Chubb and Ford are split in the backfield as Watson takes the snap ... Here we go."

That is true.

Defensively it was clear that wholesale changes had to be made. Berry did not waste time. Woods was fired and Schwartz was hired quickly.

Berry and Schwartz got to work quickly bringing in new personnel. Players picked to play Schwartz's scheme. I think Schwartz is a guy who coaches hard. Makes players accountable. I think they will be good. The defense is less complicated and less likely to have communication issues. Defense is easier to get up to speed.

KS has had time to plan for DW. Last year any made plans could not be effectively installed after 11 weeks of playing in the old system.

DW and KS have had time to put this offense in place. Hard to say if they will be precise right away. That is a question.

The one good thing is Nick Chubb and the OL are reliable.

The offense has had DW all off season and all through camp. Hopefully they will ready to go.

While I don't really disagree with anything you said, every NFL HC who has and is changing systems has had the entire off season and training camp to prepare. It's simply a question if they can get a more complicated O and D firing on all cylinders right out of the gate or if it will all take time to gel? We will have at least a glimpse into the answer soon enough.


Intoducing for The Cleveland Browns, Quarterback Deshawn "The Predator" Watson. He will also be the one to choose your next head coach.

I am not expecting miracles out of the offense right out of the gate.

My expectations on defense are different. I was impressed by what I have seen on defense.

Schwartz brings something that I believe will help KS. His experience is vast. KS got a front seat in seeing that all through camp.

The defensive players really seem all in. And Myles was not on the field. This last game I watched Z run right over his guy. He is way more than Clowney as a pass rusher. The DT unit is a giant upgrade. Juan Thornhill looks like a much better player than JJ. I am very optimistic about the defense.

My hope is the defense leads the way and the offense is good enough and will improve weekly.

Most of these guys have been playing mainly against back ups. I admire your optimism but at the same time want to see how it all looks against NFL starters when it comes to some of these guys.

I do like what I've seen from the Schwartz defense in terms of giving the quicker players more chances to read and react. I think that gives players like JOK the opportunity to use every tool on their toolbox. Something I haven't seen since he's been drafted. To this point, IMO it's as if Woods had him playing in handcuffs.

The defensive stood out against the Chiefs starting OL. The practice week against the Eagles the reports from the Eagles was the Browns front was for real. Myles unblockable.

The players added on defense are better than what we had. Overall IMO the players that were here last year will benefit a lot.

So yes I am optimistic about the defense.

I like the growing animosity between the Bengals and Browns. Bengals WRs vs Browns DBs is good stuff.

Juan Thornhill is on track to miss game 1. He's one guy I was looking forward to seeing play

It seems like every year we have more injuries in Practice than actual preseason games.


If it's not Chaos, it's not Cleveland.

I wouldn't want to hear about it either, if I were him. Funny how some are measuring Burrow for a gold jacket, but he is 1-4 against the Browns. Saying that, it has nothing to do with Sunday, but I find it interesting that with the Browns recent lack of success, we have played well against the Bengals of late.

As of late sounds great if you ignore that last game against them. I wonder what changed?
