Don’t Buy Into The Hype, They Are Still The Browns

The team with the most buzz this off season is probably the one by Lake Erie. That’s right, with their recent moves, the Buffalo Bills are still ready to be New England’s punching bag. The other team by Lake Erie however has made waves with the acquisitions of Morgan Burnett, Kareem Hunt, Olivier Vernon, Sheldon Richardson, and their crowned jewel of the off season, Odell Beckham Jr. This has caused their Super Bowl odds to be as good as the league’s elites, despite finishing last season with a sub-500 record. Now that record may not fully reflect how good their team was because after the firing of Hue Jackson, they ended the season going 5-3 record. Now this is better, but it should be noted that these games were not against the best opponents. They beat a Falcons team that lost a lot of defensive starters to injury, a Carolina Panthers team in the midst of a seven-game losing streak, an uninspired Denver Broncos, and of course they also beat the Bengals twice. Needless to say I still have my doubts, especially since they only won that Broncos game by one point because of a sack by Jabrill Peppers who they traded away as a part of the OBJ deal.

The Most Underrated Quarterback of the Draft

This new stock of rookie quarterbacks looks interesting to say the least. Despite many labeling them as a weak draft class, 4 of the 11 Quarterbacks selected are expected to take up the starting job for their teams. If not right off the bat, then after they gain some wisdom from the veteran on their roster. Those four signal-callers are obviously Kyler Murray, Dwayne Haskins, Drew Lock, and Daniel Jones. Though I contend that if there was another rookie quarterback who will make a couple starts for their team, I would have to go with Gardner Minshew.
