  1. I'd say in reality the QB with the most pressure this year is Carson Wentz. After 2 injury-shortened seasons, a big contract extension, and with Foles having become Philly's new "Rocky" figure and now gone, Carson is really on the spot.

  2. Mahomes at 3? After a season like that, he should have the most pressure on him. People are gonna he expecting that same type of play. I don’t want him to be a one season wonder, but I’m not exactly sold on him after 1 season of starting.

  3. Oh really? The Browns?This joke organization that threw money around to any bum after one good year. A new QB practically every year.Who exactly is going to crucify him? The people of Cleveland and Northeast Ohio? And what the hell is GREAT anyway? Making the playoffs? Going to the Superbowl? Improving from year to year? Personal achievements? All you pundits throw that word around all the time.Plenty of mediocre QBs were part of some great teams.And some great QBs never won anything.

  4. $1,000 to whatever Cleveland charity he picks to throw Steven A Smith into Lake Erie for disrespecting our city! First off Steven A our Indians are in first place in the wild card and only 3 games back in our division but you wouldn’t know because you don’t really cover baseball. Secondly we have high end night clubs, Broadway shows and a melting pot of food thanks to Ellis Island just like New York City. And lastly you are completely oblivious to all of this because the only time you have ever spent time in Cleveland is to cover the finals and in your hotel room. This is not to mention the rock and roll hall of fame, football Hall of fame and tons of other things to see and do. Maybe you should check out trip advisor next time you come to town since you don’t have a clue!

  5. The Browns added a ton of talent in the offseason. Freddie Kitchens won a bunch of games last year running the offense after Hue Jackson was gored. The Steelers did not make the playoffs last year and lost their premier receiver. Our defense should also be much better with the offseason additions. I believe the Browns will win the AFC North this year.

  6. Why is Russell Wilson ranked at 6 and behind Andrew Luck? It makes no sense, he has been in the MVP conversation for several years. Somehow on a down year after trading players and losing players he led the team to the playoffs. He put the. On his back and they definitely would be there without him.

  7. Finally I'm hearing someone talk about all the shit talking, taunting coaches, and bugging out this MF is doing already. I can't wait to see someone knock him on his ass, so he can get a large helping of that humble pie and stfu. He has been in the league ONE fucking year, and he is taunting coaches that were just trying to protect him and constantly talking shit to players like he has never lost a fucking game. Like Bart Scott said 'Can't Wait', until he faces those defenses that will shut him up and knock him into next week. He has a great future, but just needs to slow (his mouth)the fuck down.

  8. Peyton Manning is the most overrated player of all time, the only person even close to taking that title from him is Aaron Rodgers. To be considered one of the ALL-TIME greats you need 3 rings minimum. Period. Big Ben is right there in the same class as Peyton Manning so long as they have the same number of rings.

  9. Johnny Manzeil II. The Browns are going to absolutely SHIT THE BED. Eli Manning and Giants will have better seasons that the Browns will. Sorry, Browns fans, you signed that little CANCER. It will make a great reality show. OBJ will lead the league is TWEETS and CRYING. What a little pussy. He'll get hurt in the first half of the season anyway.

  10. Ion get it like y'all stupid ass analyst want all deas guys 2 jus be quiet an all dat nah bro nah every player had rite 2 talk there game as much as dey want its jus wether or not det back it up ??‍♂️??‍♂️? stupid ass spears like shut up in my opinion its pat homes watch wen he dont get past afc champ ima love 2 see if he Bret farve then
