I'm excited about Cleveland's future now. I'm hoping for a 9-7 or better season in 2010, maybe a wild card in 2011 and a division championship (or better) by 2012.

Could be sooner rather than later. We've got a legitimate front office now, with true football people running things. Don't count the Browns out in knocking off a few teams on their schedule this year. I could see us splitting with Pittsburgh again this year, and yes maybe (GASP) a sweep this year with the whole Big Ben distraction. That team isn't the same team that it was in 2008. I can also see splitting with the Bengals as well. Baltimore is the only team in our division that I can't see us beating.

I also like the Colt McCoy pick, and I really wanted to see Quinn work out, but s*** happens. You know it's funny for a team that was known for some great QBs in it's history... Otto Graham, Frank Ryan, Bryan Sipe, Bernie Kosar... a good QB has sure alluded us in recent times. Then again there was a time when the Cleveland Browns were at one time considered the New York Yankees of football. Lately we're used in the same sentence as the Detroit Lions when it comes to ineptness. Oh well, nowhere to go but up, and sooner or later "next year" will become now!

GO BROWNS!

My distaste for ND comes from back in the day when every college game wasn't broadcast. I'd get frustrated by the fact that while I couldn't always watch the Buckeyes, Notre Dame was on every week.

I am no genious but the Browns front office is about as competent as the Lion's and my Redskins'!
That's how guys like Holmgren, Parcells and others build franchises. They come in, burn it all down and start from scratch. Even good talent is shipped out if it doesn't fit their system.

And it couldn't have happened soon enough IMO! The previous regimes going back to when the Browns started up again in 99 have made a mockery of a once great football organization! The good thing is that Lerner has the pockets, and will spend his money until he gets it right! With Holmgren, and Heckert in the front office, we are now heading in the right direction. Last year I took a wait and see approach which is unusual because with a new season, I was always excited. This year that excitement and optimism has returned! I feel as Browns fans we will soon be proud of this franchise again, and the city will soon have that electricity like it did back in the mid 80s when the team was a Super Bowl contender!

GO BROWNS!

We'll we will know if the Browns are truly cursed if BQ becomes a superstar QB in Denver.

Or if Holmgren, and Heckert fall flat on their face here. We all know Cleveland is cursed. The Cavs proved that again last night. I'm trying to figure out how in the world that we can break the damn thing!
