Default McGinest is a poop stain!

Wed, 15 Mar 2006 13:20:41 -0800

Len Pasquarelli, of ESPN.com, reports the Cleveland Browns have agreed to terms with free agent LB Willie McGinest (Patriots) on a three-year, $12 million deal.

Another good pick-up for Cleveland.

As much as I hate the Browns I have to admit they've improved their team by leaps and bounds this past week and if they can get some half decent QB play from Charlie Frye next season they could make some noise in the division.

Man, the AFC North could be actually competitive with 3 teams. They could be a good divison to watch this year.

Obviously, the Browns offseason moves so far grade out to an A. If they can put together a decent draft, and also get Suljah back, that may be the team the Bengals have to battle for second place next year.

Except for the center they signed from New Orleans, the Clowns have thrown big money at old players and role players. It brings to mind the Shakesperean quote, "Full of sound and fury, signifying nothing!"

The LT they signed from the Falcons wan't a starter. McGinest is 34, not 30 or 27. Jurevicius is a journeyman receiver with his fourth team.

Do not be impressed by free agent signings. Look at the Penguins' free agent signings before this hockey season. Ziggy Palffy, Sergei Gonchar, Mark Recchi, John LeClair, Jocelyn Thibault. None of them made the Penguins into a winner.

To become a winner, a team has to draft well, then coach and develop their players. Free agency can be useful to add a little depth or maybe fill a hole, but it cannot build a team.
The clowns may be just as sorry at the end of the 2006 season a they were at the end of the 2005 season.

Frye will accomplish nothing without a better offensive line.

Disagree. The LT was an upgrade over Shelton, Faine can either stay at C or move to guard, and vice/versa with Bentley, Andruzzi and Cosey are ex-Pats who can still play, and Ryan Tucker was their best OL last year.

Joe Jerevicius was highly coveted by many on this board because he's a 3rd down/possesion receiver, something the Browns have lacked since they lost Johnson.

McGinest won't be an every down player, and he can still play.

Even fat old Washington was an upgrade over the flop they had playing NT last year.

They did a great job, and never had to overpay. I stick with my A grade.

Other than the AFC North, I see the other AFC contenders falling farther behind.

Another Patriot legend heads into the sunset.

Im sure I am in the large majority of Pats fans who wish Willie all the best - he put his body on the line for us and made some truly signature plays for us - stopping the Edge on the 1yd line is a personal fav.

I wouldnt be feeling quite so generous if he went to a real contender.

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

McGinest still brings a lot to the table. Especially for the Browns. He knows the defense that Romeo wants to put in place. He's a very solid citizen and stabilizing locker room influence. If we didn't have several of those kinds of players, stabilizing influence, around, we would have kept him. He might not beat you on the field any more but his presence might be part of what beats you in a year or two.
