1. I'm gonna give Matt Jones a wash for 2006 due to injury, and annoint him the next stud WR. Very strong finish to 2006 TD wise. The guy is a redzone magnet ala Fitzgerald.

2. Edwards should be good to very good, but I don't trust the Cleveland Brown's. Like was mentioned earlier, if they get Plummer then maybe, but probably not.

3. Reggie Brown is kinda ho hum, Brian Westbrook just catches too many passes and the ball is spread too much. He has an outside shot of becoming a stud.

I know he's been a bust so far but Brandon Jones as an option over him? :-?


I would be surprised if Troy "hands of stone" Williamson even starts next year.

You know they will bring a receiver in and he couldn't beat out Taylor last year and I don't see that changing.

That was a waste of a first round pick.

I would take Brandon Jones over Williamson every day of the week and twice on Sunday.

I like Matt Jones and Braylon Edwards. Unfortunately they both have inept QB's so unless that changes their value is still suspect.

I wish people would stop saying that. The idea of Jake the Flake at QB for my beloved Browns gives me the heebie-jeebies. :-P However, I agree that Braylon's the best bet of the group to have a "breakout" year. (Although if Stallworth does indeed leave Philly Brown would be neck-and-neck with him).


I think Edwards is the most talented of the bunch but the QB position is going to hurt him more than Clayton and Brown.

You have to think Plummer is better than anyone Cleveland has right now which is a little scary.

I see Jake the Snake ending up in Houston. Carr is not getting it done and Jake would be an upgrade imo.


You can't seriously belive that Plummer would do better than Carr in Houston?

Carr has one great receiver who is always underrated, but mainly because Carr can't get the ball to him, because his O-line is pitiful at best, and with the lack of (and sometimes total abandonment) of the running game this year gave Carr very little to work with.

I'm looking at Carr's stats, and for such a horrid team he was on this year he really put up very nice numbers, decent TD to INT ration, not very good, but its not horrid.

Carr's biggest mechanical problem is his footwork, which I've heard has greatly improved (whether thats true or false I'm not sure).

I'm hoping like h**l that Cleveland won't be the third NFL team to be suckered into paying Jake The Flake a buncha money. He's a ridiculously overrated quarterback, all the way back to his days at ASU.

I completely agree with that. I thought last year was going to be Matt Jones' breakout year but injuries slowed him down. If he can stay healthy all next year he'll put up some really good numbers.

I'd say clayton or brown have the best year.


ok it's homerism... but you might be right...

unfortunately i think he has the most DOWNSIDE when compared to Braylon and Clayton...

my money is on Edwards

If Carr wasn't the problem then why is the owner and coach saying they will be looking for a better option?

Carr has failed there is no doubt about it. Time to stop making excuses.

I saw Jaworski break Carr down once and he showed where Carr had plenty of chances to make throws and was scared to pull the trigger.

His O-Line takes alot of the blame but the bottom line is he holds onto the ball to long and is indecisive.

Plummer is most definately an upgrade over Carr. I don't think Plummer is a great QB but he is better than Carr.

What makes you think Plummer will command alot of money? He should come pretty cheap at this point.

I love Braylon Edwards, but I think Vincent Jackson will be in for a top 15 season in terms of fantasy numbers next year. WIth teams taking away Gates and more loading up on LT, the athleticism and height of Jackson will make for an ideal target for Rivers to rely on.

How would a team take away Gates AND load up against the run to stop LT2?

It's Easy to do with a simple 5-5-5 Defensive Formation.
