End of Season thoughts vol. 1

The pain is over.  The Browns have officially put us out of our misery and ended a dreadful 2012 season. A 4-12 season that the best thing you can say about it is that we were 'competitive' in some games.  I honestly don't know where to go from here.

The only good thing people will talk about is the Defense. Yes, the defense was okay and there are some pieces to work with, but there is still plenty of room for improvement on the 30th rushing defense in the league. The only reason the pass defense looked good is because teams simply ran the ball against us (and we played some really crappy QBs along the way).

This team needs a real shot in the arm on Offense.  They have 6 picks in the first 4 rounds in this year's draft. (2 in the first round and 2 in the fourth)  The Browns need to get 2 dynamic playmakers in the first 3 picks and one Offensive Lineman.  I would love to see this...Blackmon, WR OkSt. then a stud Oline and then with the high 2nd round pick see if you wait long enough to grab LeMichel James from Oregon.

The management team needs to get all their ducks in a row.  This is the make or break season for them.  The 3rd year is very important (just ask Steve Spagnola from STL that just got canned).  6-10 is not an acceptable improvement in the 3rd year.  Time to step up to the plate Shurmer, you're rookie season is over and fans will be thirsty for blood if you have a slow start next year.
