    All we can do now is hope for the best with our new QB. This was WAY to expensive to get to this point. Serious mistakes by the Texans got us here. Only a seriously good QB will make it better.

    Which is what I'm hoping for.

    This situation just reeks of desperation. But, now that it's done, I'm hoping for a few good o-lineman drafted to help protect our new QB. He's going to have a decent receiving corps, a decent RB situation, he has to have a better o-line than we've provided the last few QBs. Otherwise, this isn't going to amount to much.

    I'm with you, I pray Watt and the defense aren't wasted on a piss poor offense that can't get the ball in the end zone. I hope Watson works out, I'll gladly eat my crow. But theres been too much money and too many picks tied up in a QB position that hasn't produced as of yet since the asswater signing.

    You guys are a trip. You should hope the RS first round magic keeps flowing.

    Stupidest ******* team in the league. The Cleveland Browns are now making better decisions than we are. I'm just speechless with disgust over this entire situation.

    Blow tens of millions of dollars on a FA QB who sucks.
    Pay another team a 2018 2nd round pick to get rid of him.
    Trade away the 2018 1st round pick to move up and grab Watson. Basically it feels like we spent two 1's and a 2 to get Watson. That's how it seems to have played out.

    Morons.... Morons everywhere in that building.

    Hell we won't draft until Saturday next year, might as well trade our 3rd-6th round picks from next year to move up this year and get some crappy O Linemen. That way Rick and the scouting department can just take next year off and hang out in Cabo in April 2018.

    Freaking Browns are continuing to pile up more picks man. I wonder if the Browns actually have their crap together, may look back in a decade and Houston may have made Cleveland successful.

    I would actually consider doing that. Just mine the hell out of the spots where this draft is deep and write off the 2018 draft entirely. Just walk away from it. Make your comp picks and bust your ass researching the **** out of the unsigned free agents.

    I wouldn't be surprised at all if Cleveland does achieve respectability in the next couple of years. Machine learning and analytics are for real.

    Ultimately, is Watson worth giving up a 1st and 2nd round pick? Because that's what happened.

    Cleveland is definitely putting some pieces in place.

    Jesus Christ! There's no satisfying you MF's is there? Had Rick Smith drafted a Safety or DE y'all would be calling for his head. I give him respect for doing what he had to in order to get possibly the best QB in this entire draft.

    May the football gods finally bless us...

    I think that human analysts have a hard time with football because the relationships might not be there. But when you release the SVMs on the data, I'm sure it provides some insights.

    How about we actually let the QB and team play before we start running around screaming that the sky is falling?

    Unless he is a 10 year franchise QB it was too high a price to pay. We can wait and see all we want and hope he turns out to be great but two 1st's for a QB in an average draft for QB talent. Slim chance this works out in the end, that's all some of us are saying.

    13 spots and a swap for a 1st. Ive seen teams settle for half that.

    I was outspoken and bashed due to my opinions on the oz trade. We got dry raped no dinner on that.

    Im ok with this trade.

    This is an "all in" move for this front office and HC. It either works and they look brilliant, or, McNair finally cleans out the house from GM on down if it's a failure. There is no way that you keep a GM / HC for making this deal if Watson is a bust.

    Personally, I'm alright with it. This team desperately needs a QB. They swung and missed last year on the best FA QB available, and now they are finally using a 1st round pick on a QB (first time since 2002).

    Watson has some traits that I dig. He's clutch in big situations. You can't teach that. And yeah, he's got warts, but don't they all at this point?

    Let's just hope that O'Brien the QB whisperer finally finds his guy. It could be a fun ride, so I'm just going to stay optimistic as a fan until given a reason not to be.
