Question: Are DPN’s Sources Reliable?


As we’ve gotten a lot of attention in the past few days, the question has come up over and over and over again on whether or not our sources are reliable.  Or, really, if we even have a source or sources at all.  To be honest, I’ve grown to loathe the word “source” more in the past 10 days than I had ever imagined possible.  That said, I understand the questions raised, because we are after all just a fan blog.  That, and let’s be honest, not everyone knows if I am who I say I am, or if I’m at all an honest and straightforward guy (personal friends who know me, disregard).  So, the most objective way to judge our worth in this regard is to test our results.  Have we been accurate before?  Let’s take a look at when we’ve hit, and when we’ve missed.

When We’ve Been Right:

1.  Mike Lombardi May Be Removed As Browns General Manager

2.  The Browns To Hire Kyle Shanahan as Offensive Coordinator

3.  The Browns To Hire Mike Pettine

4.  Chud Getting Fired

5.  The Trent Richardson Trade (Very first, early report here) (Closer, more accurate report closer to trade)

When We’ve Been Wrong

1.  Josh McDaniels

Overall, I’m pleased with our track-record.  It’s a tricky thing, to be honest, knowing when to feel secure enough in an early report and when to let it simmer for a while.  I do hope that going forward, we continue to earn your trust.
