    Default Trades

    92.3 reporting this morning that trade talks are happening regarding Thomas, Mack and that Kruger is available.

    Personally I think this is a good thing. Having a great left tackle has done exactly squat for the Browns, might as well get what they can while he's still in his prime. Mack wanted out last time his contract was up so if he's willing to waive his no trade clause then the team should pounce on that opportunity, especially with Erving in the wings. As for Kruger, meh theyre not using him right anyways.

    Thoughts?

    Given farmers adroit skills we could trade all three and end up with a fourth rounder in return. I think its time to trade GM's.
    If you don't watch the games yourself and only parrot what the talking heads say YOU HAVE NOTHING TO WRITE THAT I CARE TO READ BECAUSE YOU ARE AN ASSHAT. i mean that in the best way possible of course. At the behest of a much respected one here I have altered my sig. Will he notice? :-)

    Someone on radio said Farmer was directed to collect as many draft picks as he can to make the position attractive as possible for his replacement! hahahahah

    Trading Thomas would be a hard pill to swallow.

    Grossi on the pregame.

    Rumors are the topic.

    Says the Kruger rumor makes sense. The O line rumors do not.

    If Ray Farmer trades Joe Thomas, I am finished. Mack and Kruger can go, I don't give a fuck, but there is no way we can trade Joe Thomas. It's just not happening. Fuck that right off immediately if not sooner.

    To those who like/support farmer...do you think a real GM like Bill Polian would have done better with the draft opportunities farmer has had? It would be a dream come true to kick ray to the curb and bring Polian or someone of that skill level into this organization. BTW as with lombardi/banner, I am fully willing to help through ray and his shit out the door for free.

    I kinda figured this would be the reaction of many. Is there any scenario you would be OK with trading him?

    Six first round picks, Tom Brady and a clause in his updated contract saying he can opt out and resign with Cleveland immediately following the trade.

    Seriously though, I'd consider it for the top pick in the draft. Short of that, nothing. Don't care if it's a first and a second. Joe Thomas is sacrosanct. He's a future hall of famer who is lights out and locks down the blindside. He's key in our development. I want him watching a young quarterback's back. I want him to be a Cleveland Brown his entire career. I want our team to stand by our talent when it comes to men like him, who go above and beyond for our team. I want that shit rewarded with our undying love and unconditional support.

    It's not like we've got some ace left tackle waiting in the wings. Best case scenario? We get a first round pick for him - that we then have to use replacing him with a dude who likely won't be as good - in fact, knowing our luck, he'll be a damn bust.

    Farmer seems like he's in a panic. Upwards of four players, three of them big name, on the trade block mid-season? I think we're tanking, and he's lost his fucking mind.

    Guys farmer doing stupid shit should not be a surprise. Its his track record...snickers, gilbert, irving (who sucks more than gravity at his draft position), west, Shall I continue? This guy wants to be Ozzie....he aint Ozzie, as a matter of fact he's not fit to wash Ozzies jock.

    Fire farmer now before this gets worse.

    You'd think he'd have to be fired. He's fucked up the draft, he's fucked up free agency, he's fucked up our players.

    Seriously, at this point, I would welcome back Lombardi/Banner with OPEN ARMS. I would run into their arms, crying, pleading how much I missed them. Their incompetence was staggering, but stood next to Farmer, they were truly brilliant.

    Ray Farmer is a fucking idiot, and I hope he dies today. Straight up. Heart attack. Hit by a bus. Raped by a moose. All of the above. Fuck him. Fuck him so damn hard.

    This is why I'm OK with trading Thomas.

    Everything the Cleveland fucking browns has done has been wrong. I want change. Statuesque game managing bumpkin QB's for a fucking decade? Play a short cocky wildcard.

    Same left tackle for 7 years? Change it up fuck it.

    This team perennially sucks and I am coming to believe that everything that was ingrained in me about midwest football is goddamn wrong. Or at least the city of Cleveland cant do right.

    SO lets do something different. Screw three yards and a cloud of dust lets run a spread offense, etc etc.

    That is me with the rumor of a trade. If they trade him, it's going to result in a six foot hole for Farmer and me in prison. I will reign down an unfathomable force of fury that will make that fat motherfucker think god has forsaken him and the antichrist has risen to wage armageddon upon his bald fucking head. He's going to need to seek protection from the UN, UNICEF, WHO, Team America and anybody who will listen, and it still wouldn't be enough. I will find him, I will destroy him, and tales of his demise will give children nightmares for centuries to come.

    I agree about changing it up, but regarding the part in your quote in bold: That's just nonsense. You gotta come up with a better reason than, "Fuck it!" I mean, if the Browns get an offer they can't refuse, then they should seriously consider it, but JT is the best player this team has had since Jim Brown. Trading him away to just "change it up" is nonsense. Left Tackle is a top 3 most important position, and the Browns have arguably the greatest of all time.

    Should of done all this in offseason.

    Kruger isnt getting used right. Mack ainr worth half his money and thomas going downhill and we arent gonna win this year or next.

    We meed to build young talent.

    Gipson and haden aint done shit.
    Gilbert needs to play....poyer is our best safety.

    Gaines ans campbell need to play.
    Erving needs to play and get experience.

    We have to get joey bosa ezekiel elliott braxton miller darron lee and sterling shepard.

    Fuck it.....taylor decker better then mack schwartz greco erving.

    Our line sucks...and is penalized on 3rd down and fucks us.

    Coaching. Oline coach drama hurt us but thomas always false starting. He could get called alot more. He moves constantly. Refs let him bc it him.


    We arent winning.
    Theyre old.....and expensive and not helping us at all.

    Time to go

    Well yeah in my hyperbolic state i forgot to mention they would have to get value in return, im just saying noone on that roster should be above trying to replace if it can benefit the team.
