I think your'e on the right track with letting some of the youngsters play and see what we have with them. I am especially curious to see Troy Smith play and see what he has to offer.

The future should be jason brown at center unless there is a top center in the draft.Flynn has been a liability for a long time and should never have been signed to a long contract.The judging of talent by the coaches is poor.The pressure up the middle can be laid at the centers feet, however he is at the feet of the QB more times then not!We have some good future talent for the offensive line but need to draft one more hard nose SOB to put some real toughness in it. Too many Flynn's, Terry's and alike, result in a slow , non physical line that gets pushed around. PS we have no pocket to pass from ever. We need coaches that can teach technic.I trust that Mr. Biscoti will do what ever he can to make us proud once again. He really cares and we are fortunate to have him.

Cris Chester needs alot of work before he is put on the field. I saw his poor technic against washington in a scrimege.Flynn should have been gone long ago.Terry is soft and if he makes it at all it is on the left side. Todd Heap needs to be told to wear thigh pads, i'm starting to wonder if he is a little soft , since he never does block well and is out too much. Two years now and he has had physical problems. His back up gets pushed around also when he trys to block. The receivers don't block well and the backs are seen standing around a yard past the line of scrimage as if they are safety values instead of being in to pick up a blitzer on pass plays.This offense is Soft The center is pathetic. Watching him week after week getting thrown to the ground at the Qb's feet is horrific.It is tme for this offense to be ashamed as they are the laughing stock of the league on National TV time and again.

A question that's been coming up a lot recently is this: Is Chester just inexperienced -- requiring more coaching and experience -- or is he just a bust? I've heard people support both sides. Thoughts?

Chris Chester may be atheletic... but he's not big enough to even slow down Sean Rogers, Albert Haynesworth, Jamal Willams, Casey Hampton, Pat Willams, Tank johnson, Vince Wilfork etc.....

i got one word for cleveland klown fans john elway that will shut u the f up also get off sre boards u have 1 good season and u think u know football old players ur morons ray lewis leads the league in tackles i looked at the browns ur leader is a cb and that normally isnt really good lol funny how cleveland clowns say we have old players when they have ted washington and willie mcginist and jamal lewis pfffff good luck with them and jamal would come back if we fired bb and showed him more money nfl is all about money.I do disagree boller sucks mcnair is washed up and u cannot judge troy smith till the guy plays a full game and then say what u want but the guy can run teams may have passed because of size but he has a arm and with a good line and playaction he would be the next vick.so those who wanna give up on another good qb he goes somewhere else i toled u so because i was right about anderson

Kyle Boller just has been in too many bad luck siutations. I think he is a servicable OB for now but we need to look to the future. This team can still be great, as in last year, but the play of the OB needs to improve.
