Hillis is a nice story, I just wonder how long his running style will play in the NFL. McCoy is a nice story, tough as nails QB, I wanted the Bengals to take him in the 2nd round, but again I want to see how he continues to develop and make adjustments.
It may sound wrong, but losing games like they did yesterday is actually better for the Browns. Play tough, good football but also improve that draft status. The Browns are a team that need an infusion of talent. They should be better next season, but playoffs next season is wishful thinking from this outsiders view.
They're a well-coached, disciplined football team, which is a start. I totally agree, they need an infusion of talent, especially at the skill positions on offense. But they're clearly on the up and up.
Then again, I thought this a few years ago after their 10-6 season, and they simply imploded. So time will tell.
