Darn right.Thanks for beginning to point out the pathetic nature of the Crennel/Grantham defense. Doesn't it resemble the SAME soft line of defense we had when Crennel was defensive coordinator under Chis Palmer? Remember when the DB's lined up 10 yards beyond the line of scrimmage and were content to give up everthing and anything underneath? Of all teams, why couldn't the Browns see what the real Crennel was all about from the first experience?? Why didn't Savage ask him who his coordinators would be in the interview process-couldn't have happened as Crennel initially wanted to hire the lame Chris Palmer as his offensive coordinator. I cringed THE DAY Crennel was announced as Browns head coach, and he hasn't let me down.
Why now is Savage left off the hook? How much credit does one get in round one as a "guru" when he is picking in the top of the first round every year? Rather.......why can't more be written in analysis of his drafts beyond the first picks? His record is pathetic-he's the guy who hired Crennel, made lame picks for 3 years that resulted in cutting most of our picks on a team that should be accumulating second day picks, and the guy who is ill-prepared to handle any of the responsibilities as a GM and team leader. Want a few simple examples of his draft "proficiency?(this list could be pages-I follow the draft closely)-
1.) Why pass up offensive lineman year after year in rounds 2/3 and pick marginal players like Brodney Pool (first pick in round 2), Travis Wilson, DqWell Jackson, et. all???
2.) Why trade Faine ONLY for the privalege of moving to the top of round 2 and then tab an undersized squatty bowlegged middle linebacker like DqWell Jackson when we could have kept Faine and drafted Thomas Howard??? Mr. Howard has the size and athleticism we SHOULD have been seeking.
3.) How come we cut all of our mid round picks at key positions when GOOD teams KEEP their players who then contribute?? Roy Hall makes Indy as a 5th round pick........Jay Richardson makes Oakland's roster as a DE and starts while we cut Chase Pittman and Percile. On and on and on.
4.) 3 years into this and our defensive lineman are non-athletic, fat, and slow? Go back and look at all the missed opportunities to draft such along with all the defensive lineman Savage shuttled.(examples aplenty I can provide).
5.) Signing Gary Baxter for $30M (he was a stiff from the start) and letting Anthony Henry go?? Many more examples here.
It's TIME to turn the tables on Savage's pathetic continued talk of the past and onto HIS track record, which is now well established.
Let's get on with moving Crennel and Savage the heck out of here so we can begin the process of moving the Cleveland Browns forward. And please do what you can to ensure Randy Lerner doesn't hire novice naive boobs but experienced NFL caliber profesionals.

The Browns must aquire new and much much stronger,smarter,faster and stronger defensive players PERIOD. They also need to switch to a 4-3 on first and second downs or in shorter yarder downs. Todd Grantham is the Maurice Carthon of 07, hes sorta been getting a free ride for his porous Browns Defense. They resigned Grantham inorder not to loose him, but with his punk defense it makes you wonder why in the world did we give him a new contract with a raise?? No progress basically in 3yrs as coordinator. Maurice Carthon was run out of town because of bad offensive play and play calling. Well Grantham needs the same run out of town treatment if he doesnt get this teams asses in gear on defense! Lets not be biased whats good for the goose is good for the Grantham. Once again I am calling out Phil Sal-vage , I changed his name from savage to savage because theres nothing savage about this Browns defense . The defense plays more like junk from Fred Sanfords Sal-vage yard with its aray of banged up, obsolete in effective defenders who need to be tossed off this team and unto the salvage heep. Except Wimbley and a few others none of these guys deserve there pay checks based on such un NFL like defense. Surely there must be a way we can get players on the rise from other teams defenses who may be under the radar on the second team defense. I wish all the Browns players the best , and those really trying hard and succeeding thanks. I pray Kellen Winslow and Roye,McGinnest and company all get healed up 200% before Sunday. The Browns defense must also become a great blitz sacking machine often they blitz and dont get near the other teams QB. GO BROWNS yawl pissing me off but I love ya still:-) Peace to all my North Georgia Browns Backers who meet at Jocks and Jills in Norcross

I agree with you. Kick the S.O.B'S back to Pa.

I don't know about the Browns, but I see athletics as a way to "fix" the score: so someone who has weapons to "control" the human body can move the football players to either do well and succeed, or will "sink" them by causing them to trip, not throw well, etc.... no one knows this ...

How gives a hoot about these sports teams? I sure don't! I won't support any team where the cost of going to a game is about as much as I would make in a weeks worth of work..... Besides, I won't support anyone who is richer than I am.

The defense will be fine. The browns just could'nt fix everything this year. it seemed like they really wanted to shore up the offense and all the defense has to do this year is keep the team in the game and not lose it for them. Savage will take care of the defense in next years FA and draft
