To build a playoff CONTENDER from ground zero, 3-4 years. To build a playoff power that it is reasonable to expect a move past the first round 4-5 years and that is if your 1st day picks pan out and you have a bit of luck on day two and the front office doesn't screw it up in FA. The Browns haven't been real successfull in any of that and they have a clown for a coach. So far, we have been pretty good in those areas and our coaching staff may have drawbacks, but overall are moderatly solid. May not be the right team to get us to the SB, but a pretty good teaching/building staff.
