AUDIO Browns Ready To Start 2016 Campaign

The Cleveland Browns and the Green Bay Packers are ready to lift the lid on the 2016 season, and the RGIII era will officially begin.

Browns beat writer Nate Ulrich from the Akron Beacon Journal joined the Sam Bourquin Show to talk about how much Robert might play and what the coaching staff is looking for from him.

"They want to see if he can face that live rush and they'll give him a couple series to see what he can do, especially after not playing quarterback for a year," Ulrich said.

 

Griffin was injured before playing scout team safety for the Redskins last season.

As far as the skill positions, 1st round pick Corey Coleman will not play due to a hamstring injury and former OSU Buckeye quarterback-turned-receiver Terrelle Pryor might not play as well. Ulrich said it'll be a good chance to see the young receivers play.

"They finally addressed the positiion, they have a bunch of young guys, and I like what Rashard Higgins has been able to do in practice."

The Browns and Packers play on 97.5 WONE at 8 p.m.

Nate Ulrich from the Akron Beacon Journal spoke with Sam Bourquin and Brad Russell live from Sluggers and Putters in Canal Fulton.

Nate said that Coach Jackson will name a starter at quarterback in relatively short time, and Robert Griffin III has become more consistent with time.

"He  to continue to rise to the level of competition," Ulrich said. "He's been up and down, but he's made some plays and gotten a little bit better, but there's a lot that remains to be seen in terms of whether or not he's going to revive his career."

AUDIO Ulrich: Jackson On Board, What's Next?

Big news out of Berea as the Cleveland Browns have hired Hue Jackson as their head coach and a lot of people are applauding the move, saying the Browns are headed in the right direction.

Nate Ulrich from the Akron Beacon Journal joined the Average Sports Show Thursday just one day after the move was made.

 The next step according to Nate includes the hiring of a General Manager, one who isn't afraid of the Browns' new power structure and the analytics approach, and also putting a coaching staff together that will get the best results not only on the practice field, but on Sundays as well.

AUDIO Nate Ulrich Talking Browns Moves

The Cleveland Browns are making lots of moves, and with so many things in play, you want to know what's next.

Browns beat reporter Nate Ulrich from the Akron Beacon Journal joined the Sam Bourquin Show Tuesday to talk about the firing of Mike Pettine and Ray Farmer and if owner Jimmy Haslam will ever get it right.

"I think it was a good move to turn the page as far as the GM, but I'm not sure about Mike Pettine, he made tough decisions, but the defense was bad and losing 18 out of 21 was bad as well."

 

Fast forward to the moves made yesterday and today with Sashi Brown and Paul DePodesta joining the organization, it leaves a lot of people with a lot of questions.

"It's out of the box thinking," Ulrich said. "Can the Harvard guys work with the football guys and make this thing work?" "It'll be interesting to watch," he added.

After the Browns humiliating 30-9 loss at the hands of the Pittsburgh Steelers, there are many questions swirling around the lakefront. 

Our own Sam Bourquin dissected the loss, saying it amazes him why people continue to watch the team, despite their ineptitude this season, and in seasons past.

 

"How can you sit there and root this team on?" Bourquin asked. "You're not going to see me barking and woofing."

For Akron Beacon Journal Browns beat writer Nate Ulrich, who joined the show, he says he doesn't really see a light at the end of the tunnel with the current trifecta of Ray Farmer, Mike Pettine, and owner Jimmy Haslam.
