Re: Horton: straight shooter or loose cannon?

Re: Horton: straight shooter or loose cannon? 

Here's what to expect on offense:

[Norv] Turner said some things in his opening press conference that Browns fans want to hear...

 “The biggest thing for me, you want to offensively be a team that is exciting. You want to be a team that the fans love to watch. 

“If you’re going to be that type of team, obviously you have to be able to score points, you have to be able to make explosive plays, big plays, you have to be a team that plays fast, plays hard, plays physical and I think it will show that our guys like to play football,” he said. 

Turner pointed out that he and Chudzinski teamed up to have a potent offense in San Diego.

“That first year (Chudzinski) was with us we were 13-3 and we were a very, very productive offense,” Turner said. “We were in the top five in big plays in the league and we’ve always been very productive in terms of plays over 20 yards. 

“The second year we were together we were first in the league in total offense and again, we were in the top four or five in terms of big plays.” 

Here's what to expect on defense:

This guy [Horton] says he's going 3-4 Steeler style, attack mode and he'll blitz like a madhouse (says AZ blitzed 2nd most in league behind only the Texans).

There you have it - the Browns are going for an "explosive" offense looking to be among the league leaders in big plays and total offense, and an attacking defense that blitzes more than anybody.

I don't know how many wins that adds up to, but I can't wait to see this. At least it will be entertaining.

Thank you Mr. Haslem.
