With The First Pick of The 2018 NFL Draft, The Cleveland Browns Select: Josh Allen.

Silly season continues, as this past weekend has been the NFL Combine.  Prospects from all over this great land assembled in Indianapolis to do a bunch of meaningless drills, and interviews.  That brings us to our fourth Quarterback will most certainly be discussing as an option at first overall, or even fourth.

Out of all the options at Quarterback in the 2018 Draft Class, Josh Allen is down towards the bottom.  Why you ask?  Easy, there have been about 100 Josh Allen’s in past NFL Drafts.  First off, he’s a fucking monster standing at 6’4, 240 lbs.  Just a fucking linebacker playing QB.  These are obviously seen as positive traits. He is a guy who will be able to withstand NFL punishment.   Another talking point is his hands, big people have large hands, and Josh Allen’s hands are pretty big.  These are all contributing factors to this guys cannon of an arm.

The career stats for Allen are as posted above.  The biggest takeaway: What the fuck happened this year?  I see a significant statistical drop-off in almost every major category in 2017.  He threw 12 less TD’s in 2017. He also declined in interceptions, which is obviously a good thing.  Just head scratching statistics.  This guy can throw it 90 fucking yards, but he averaged only 6.7 yards per attempt in 2017?  He is a surprisingly decent runner.  In 2016 he ran for 523 yards and 7 TD’s.  Again, those numbers plummeted in 2017, where he only rushed for 204 yards, and 5 TD’s.  For such a big body.

So, the kid has a good arm.  He can move around in the pocket ala Big Ben, should the Browns draft him to be the Quarterback of the future? ABSOLUTELY NOT.  First off, I hadn’t watched ANY of this kids games, because well I am not a Wyoming fan.  He is coming from that typical two-bit, punching Judy College offense.  The QB is hardly under center, and almost every fucking play is a run-pass option.  He hasn’t displayed the ability to take snaps under center consistently, at least from what I am seeing.  I watched that highlight tape (the first time I’ve watched Josh Allen) and I saw less than 10 snaps come from under center.  I saw a few bootlegs, but that’s about it.

Basically what I see when I watch this tape, is a big dude who relies on his natural arm strength.  He’s got accuracy issues that may not ever be fixed.  Doesn’t matter how far you throw it when you can’t hit the target.  But, Danny! What if the Browns develop him properly?!   We have a Josh Allen on the Roster already, and his name is DeShone Kizer.  Kizer is a a guy who is massive, has a rocket arm, can run, and has insane accuracy issues.   Kizer may never be fixed, which leads me to believe we wouldn’t be able to develop Allen in the first place.

(^Looks sexy doesn’t it^)

For that reason, I am OUT on Josh Allen.  The question is, are the Browns out on him too?  I sure hope so…

0-16.

0-16.  Oh and fucking sixteen.  This past Sunday was the worst Sports related event in my lifetime.  What happened is exactly what I did NOT want to happen.  The Browns played the Steelers hard, as Brown, Bell, and Ben did not suit up.  The Browns were driving late in the 4th quarter to take the lead.  It was 28-24 Steelers with under 2 minutes left to play.  Kizer was leading a march into Steeler territory, where they found themselves a 4th and 2 from the Pittsburgh 27.  After a timeout the Browns shockingly drew up a play that left Corey Coleman WIDE OPEN for an easy first down, and probably a touchdown.  The ball went right through his hands ending the game.

Again, not much to analyze.  They lost.  Again.  You try to prepare for 0-16, but never really can.  The pain, anger, and sadness felt once the game was over just can’t compare to anything I’ve felt sports.  I hope to look at back at this season one day, and be able to smile.  I highly doubt it I’m afraid.  The Browns secured the #1 overall, pick and #4 overall pick with a Texans loss on Sunday.  Great!  There isn’t a QB worth my morning shit coming out of College.  Great, just fucking great.  They’re going to pick some bag of milk like Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen, or Josh Allen (? No idea if that’s even his name). Anyone watch Darnold on Saturday? WOOF.

I am not going predict who they take, or even give you some BS as to who they should take. Whoever they pick better be properly developed, and the team built around him.  Godspeed whatever poor bastard gets chosen.

Unfortunately, it looks like it will come down to Sam Darnold or Josh Rosen.  Leader in the clubhouse seems to be Sam Darnold, simply because there isn’t rumblings of him having a swollen camel toe like our man at UCLA, Josh Rosen (What a pussy).

Again, what a pussy.  Look dude, part of being drafted high is the fact that 90% of the teams suck.  It’s nothing new guy.  He apparently would prefer a more stable frachise in the New York Giants.  Yeah Josh, the Giants are a real model Franchise right now, huh?

Despite Rosen apparently being a massive loser, he does have OK numbers:

Solid enough numbers that’s for damn sure, but UCLA sucks in a garbage Conference.

Darnold has put up similar numbers:

Not much there, but Darnold has 387 more passing yards than Rosen with 3 more interceptions.  Overall, the numbers are eerily similar.  There is one stat that stands out to me.  With the same exact numbers Rosen’s UCLA went 6-7 overall this season.  Darnold lead USC to 11-3. So, I guess it will come down to which player is less of a pussy?  Which ever one declares, and open about being ok with going to Cleveland will be picked.

So, everything really hinges on whether or not he will come out.  Who knows if he will.  I don’t follow College Football closely, especially Schools on the West Coast.  Hopefully does so we can take him #1 overall, and get this thing going.  If not, take some other QB (Baker Mayfield, Rosen, Allen).  Either way, no dicking around with the QB position this year.  Pick a guy, and direction for fucks sake.

Finally, to coaching.  Hue Jackson.  Wow.  I have never hated someone as much as Hue.  Hue came out, and blamed all of the players for this 0-16 campaign as par for the course.   He spews nothing but incoherent bullshit.  He even had the balls to pat himself on the back for the job he did:

Job well done Hue, you vile weed.  He couldn’t be more wrong.  Is the team bad?  Yes!  Absolutely they suck, but they are not 0-16 suck.  How many games over the past 2 years should have been won had the team had half a clue? upwards to 10.  I hope soon his players completely turn on him, and trash him in the media.  He deserves it for constantly blaming them.  The players aren’t the ones who completely ruined DeShone Kizer.  Kizer is fucking good.  He has all the tools, ability, and toughness to be a starting QB in the NFL.  Had he been coached properly, they probably win against Green Bay, Indianapolis, Pittsburgh TWICE, Jacksonville, and Detroit.   DeShone had a rough year, but he is not as bad his stats would indicate.  There were a lot of boneheaded decisions, but not all were on him.

Kizer stats

Hue refused to dial down the offense to acclimate a rookie QB.  Despite having arguably one of the worst Wide Receiving corps in league history, he’d still have Kizer chuck it up to JAG’s.  The Browns were in the top 10 in the league in passes attempted over 30 yards.  Inexcusable.  They refused to run the ball, or gave up half-way through games.

DeShone exhibited the ability to make plays with his legs this season, amassing 417 yards and 5 rushing touchdowns.  Solid.  Definitely a foundation to build on.  Poor kid was set up to fail. Say it with me again, “Fuck Hue Jackson”.  I hope they hold on to Kizer whether they go in for a Darnold/Rosen draft pick, or Cousins/Taylor free agent.

It is going to one hell of an off-season for the Browns.  Over $100 million in cap space to waste, and two top 5 draft picks. We’ll see how it goes.  Hopefully they don’t, “drop the ball” 😉
