    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

He may have lost a lot of personel, but there were many games they could and should have won but let slip when it counted. The Browns also seemed to be the only team in the league who couldn't run a screen to save their life. It was like they didn't even run through it in practice, and decided to try it in games. I didn't think he was the guy when they hired him, and he didn't convince me otherwise.

    This right here bugged the heck out of me all year as I watched every game. Especially with Jason Campbell. The guy could connect and make some beautiful long passes .... but he couldn't throw a screen pass, lead a receiver, to save his life. You had to be an acrobat to catch one of his screen passes.

    OU Head Coach and Ohio native Bob Stoops may have the inside track on the Cleveland Browns opening.

    QBs who were coached by Jeff Tedford in college tend to be awful pros.

    What happens to pro QBs who are coached by Jeff Tedford?

    Its pretty impressive when you think that he not only produced a HOF QB but a slew of NFL QB's.

    Here comes the Browns savior. This is the guy who will turn it around. Losing in Cleveland is a thing of the past. Next!

    How many college coaches have produced a high number of good quality NFL QBs? Is there someone out there with a demonstrably better resume than Tedford?

    Tedford produced 1 good quality NFL QB. His skill (if you can even call it that) was producing guys who fooled NFL scouts into thinking they were worth 1st round picks.

    FWIW, I'm intrigued by him as an NFL OC. It's especially interesting when you consider that Mike Glennon seems like a prototypical Tedford guy. I could see him thriving in a Tedford system that relies on a lot of play-action and rhythm throws.

    To his credit, he did have Aaron Rodgers. :-)
