    All of a sudden, I"m concerned about our season opener against the Browns.

    I know it's early. But looking at the Browns on paper, and seeing that Haley is running their offense, is it just me getting an uneasy feeling about this first game of the season against the Browns?

    Their defense always puts up a good fight. But now I see their offense with major upgrades. Josh Gordon is looking spectacularly in shape and Carlos Hyde /Chubb are talents at the running back position.

    Also, are the Browns at least the second best team in our division?

    Browns are always decent on paper. They have to put it together on the field before I get worried.

    I look for the Browns to be much improved this season. It's not going to be an easy thing to stop their offense, IMO.

    Then again, they really have their work cut out for them to try to stop our offense.

    That's the one area I find comfort in. Taylor looks like a bum to me. Always has.

    He's ok he just doesn't go down field enough. Some folks said it was the OC's philosophy in Buffalo so maybe he changes in Cleveland.

    It is the Clowns we're talking about here. I'm not too concerned with game 1. Hopefully Haley has them run a few of his "signature plays" that we'll be ready for.

    That said, you'd think they can only be the worst team in our division for so long. They've had high draft pics forever. One of these days, they won't be the team that everyone expects to beat. But game 1, we should be able to take care of business.

    One year they are going to get us. It's bound to happen.

    and when it does t's going to be awesome watching folks predict the end of the world.

    Well, if Taylor doesn't like airing it out downfield, our primary focus in game 1 should be on his new slot WR Jarvis Landry, who averages 100 catches per year primarily on short routes, and RB Duke Johnson who averages over 60 catches per year on dumpoffs out of the backfield.

    I'm not worried about the opener.

    They will be very different than last year. It takes time to implement big changes and get players used to playing with each other.

    I think that means that it will take Cle longer than most teams to get up to speed. Even if they are good by the end of the year, I don't expect that they'll be all that good at the beginning of the season.
