Found April 08, 2013 on Cleveland Sports 360:
Each week, Vic Carucci, does a column on the Cleveland Browns, for the official site of the Cleveland Browns. I found it humorous this week when I read what he wrote about. Carucci is claiming, it is the quarterback that makes the receiver. To some degree, I agree with that.  I can recall some great NFL receivers, that helped make their quarterbacks too. Guys like the great Lynn Swann come to mind.  Swan’s abilities, to go up and catch just about anything his quarterback threw his way, helped his Q.B.  The guy was an amazing athlete. He clearly helped Bradshaw, become a better quarterback than he actually was.  The Browns had some guys that could do the same through the years too. The first one that comes to mind for me is, Brian Brennan. Brennan, who played for the Browns from 1984-1991, could catch just about any pass thrown his way. He was one of the best 3rd down receivers, the Browns ever had. He certainly helped make his quarterbacks, look good. There was another guy that play...

  • Vic Carucci always Sits on the fence when it comes to the Browns organization. He's afraid to tell the truth about the brown's situation. He doesn't want to "Rock the boat " due to his position. I am a die hard fan and for the last 14 yrs I've been dying hard.

    Unlike Vic , I believe that we need wide receivers to help out our QB who ever it might be at that position . Someone who can mentor Gordon ,Norwood , and Travis ..( You notice that I left out little)..Also someone who can stretch out the field for Trent ..The Browns lack tight ends and the division 2 tight ends that they picked up on FA will not pose anY threats to any teams... So we have no depth at WR , kicker
    or tight ends!!! How on earth are we Going to score any pts. But Vic believes the WR position is ok!! I guess we our Going to score PTs on defense ... because we have no tight ends, no kicker or WR .... I hate to say this but this will be the same old brown's but different players and same results .. I hope I'm wrong but I have no faith!
  • No doubt Weeden needs to improve his game to complete for the quarterback position.
    It all goes hand in hand. You need a quarterback who can read/see the open man, you need a receiver who knows how to get open/run their routes, and of course an offensive coordinator calling these passing plays.

NFL Draft Team Needs: Cleveland Browns

1. Quarterback: Though Brandon Weeden will probably get another shot at the starting position, some competition should be brought in.

Cornerback: Hayden is a legitimate #1 corner...

As the highest-paid player on the Browns, is Joe Thomas’ value diminishing?

Joe Thomas is the poster boy. Sure, he is the stalwart left tackle who has yet to miss a game since being drafted by the Cleveland Browns in 2007.

Thomas is workmanlike—many recall the fishing trip he opted to take instead of the glitz and glamor of New York on draft day. He says...
