  1. The thing that will doom Colt McCoy is the fact that the Browns still have so many holes on their offense. The Browns need offensive line help on the right side, have no one capable of being a # 1 receiver, and need a second running back to compliment Peyton Hills.

    Maybe a new coordinator and coach will help McCoy (anything has to better than the last tandem). It will be interesting to see if the browns hire an OC.

  2. Who cares what Ross Tucker thinks? That guy’s arrogance is only seconded to his lack of NFL knowledge. It is amazing that a former player knows so little about the game of football. Maybe that is why he didn’t play very much. But he’ll always appeal to the half wit fans because he says “tough guy” things like “I hate kickers” and “stats are for losers.”

  3. Scott Pioli as GM of the year is a total crock!

    Mark Dominik did more for his team this season than Pioli could do in two years. The Buccaneers had 23 rookies play for the team and yet still won the same number of games as as the Chiefs. Considering only 9 of those players were actually drafted by the Bucs, I would say that Dominik did a fantastic job of finding those other 14 rookies via free agency out there to come in and make plays for a team hot in the playoff hunt.

    During the season, Dominik was responsible for finding all the rookies that started multiple games for the team THIS SEASON (not players drafted previously that finally figured it out) and improved this team more than any other in the league. The Chiefs had a 6 game improvement, very nice, the Bucs improved by 7 games despite playing in one of the leagues toughest divisions.
