    Just wanted to tell you that I'm enjoying your "Cleveland Browns' 10-Win Plan" series :) I think the Browns will start spending on Free Agency once they feel they are ready to start contending for the playoffs. I hope that's in 2012!

    Just wanted to say its been a pleasure reading your articles. I love seeing Browns articles from an X's and O's perspective since that is the way i look at things anyways. I currently coach semi pro football in AZ for the Tempe Predators, so that coaching background makes it hard for me to relate to alot of the articles that are written strictly from an opinion standpoint from someone with no real understanding on the game of football. So thanks for your perspective and i look forward to continuing to read more from you.
