Landry is a hard hard hitter though. Don't know the other guy. Moore's allright, but if Weeden fails, he's just a stop gap, not a long term solution. I've made my QB case in other threads, its too important to keep trying half ass fixes. Go large or sit home again. Simple math; the Seahawks spent on Matt Flynn but also drafted Wilson. They doubled their chances of success. We have the resources to invest.

And Smith and Flynn may be out there. There are no guarantees at any level. But the Browns are in a good spot to roll the dice. They have a ton of cap space if they want to pursue a free agent QB, and they have good draft position if they want to invest in the QB position there, low round or high. If they go the latter route, they can use the FA dollars to fill in a position that they might have drafted for instead of QB. Tons of flexibility.I think our goals are aligned, but the methods and timing different. Surprised you don't support, if anyone has called for full investment in QB its you. There's talent out there somewhere, we just need to quit dicking around and start pulling the trigger. And to keep pulling it until we hit something.Even if the pickings are slim, this team needs to start shopping and hope for the best. Even if we fail, we've got the deep pockets to reload and try again next year. Waiting only reduces our chances of finding what we need and getting good. Go all out for a QB and don't worry so much about failing. It's not like we might mess up our great chemistry and stellar record of success.
