So there has been some buzzing of that Michael Vick might be in the Orange and Brown for the 2010 season. I have some serious doubts about Vick's QB skills as I see him as a run first, pass second kind of guy. Also his off field issues aren't exactly easy to forget. Do we really want someone with so much baggage playing for the Browns? It's the same with Donte Stallworth. Do we really want someone who has committed crimes to be playing for the Browns?

As everyone who follows basketball by now has known for some time, there is a lot of news following Lebron and the possibility of him leaving Cleveland for either New York or Miami. At this point I would say that the chance that he stays are at maybe 65 to 35 at the best because not many know how a rich athlete such as Lebron thinks. One would like to say that he will stay but the problem is that there are things surrounding Lebron such as being a Cowboys fan and a Yankees fan. I'm not sure about if he still is a Cowboys fan because there have been commercials in which Lebron dreams about joining the Browns as well as the comment that he made in the middle of this year's season when he said that he thinks that he could help out the Browns.

Last night there were reports that Heckert has become the new GM of the Cleveland Browns. Like I said yesterday in my blog, it might or might not be a good move because of the history of decisions that have been made by the Learners weren't always the best thing (For further memories just think of Butch Davis and even more recently George Kokinis).

Well it looks like the deal might almost be in the books and it looks like Tom Heckert is going to be the next GM of the Cleveland Browns. I hope that Holmgren is making the right decision because keeping Eric Mangini was a sure-fire way of making many angry especially the part about that Daboll is allowed to stay as well. But from the track record that Heckert has it is probably going to be a good decision. Once done with this, Holmgren should go back to trying to renogiate with Cribbs on a new deal.

By now almost everyone has commented on this issue. According to "All Bets are Off"'s Bruce Drennan it is possible that the Browns just threw this offer out there until the coaching spot is finalized (which it has) and when the vacant GM spot is filled (also is close to being finished). So we might hear something new about this problem in the next few days or weeks depending on how much time it might still take. What I think is happening is that Cribbs saw the contracts that Hester and Cartwright are receiving and wants something similar. The problem is that Hester is supposedly Chicago's Number 1 WR and Cartwright seems to be a Occasional RB. Also Dante Hall comes to mind as someone who was a great KR who was placed into a position that he wasn't that great at. Cribbs was great at running the Wildcat which he seems to think might increase his value...it is plausable but it won't be a huge increase and Cribbs also had 20 catches which is the best that he has done in his career. Yes I am an advocate for Cribbs to receive a better contract but at most he deserves 2.5 million to 3 million a year not what he seems to have in mind (I've heard figures from 5 million all the way up to 10 million a year).
