  1. I just hope for the first time in a long time we are able to play this game as our 11 against Denver's 11 - and not our 11 vs Denver's 11 AND Roger's 7 henchmen.
  2. Arizona will be down at least 1 corner for Sunday - sending Tay Gowan to Phlly in the Zach Ertz trade. And no - Ertz is NOT eligible to play against us Sunday. He played last night. NFL rules are 1 game per week.
  3. This is it in a nutshell. No sense trying to figure out why, we have had enough of a history to see that OBJ and Baker just don't work together well. Best of intentions, but just as in other areas of life - it just doesn't work out. Time to move on. But, here is why we probably won't... and can't.
  4. Maybe I am going to be in the minority here, that's OK. With the rules having been modified last year, I would STRONGLY consider putting Baker on IR for three weeks. Our next three games lay out like this. 10/10/21 - @ SoFi vs the Chargers. Our strength (running the ball) hits the Chargers where they are weakest. Plus they just IR'ed on of their top LBs. If we control the game on the ground, it limits Herbert's opportunities. Give Keenum this game to shake off the rust. 10/17/21 - CARDINALS Case Keenum is very capable in directing a "shootout" game
  5. I just saw that the Padres moved on from their manager. Here's one not so much out of left field....... Sandy Alomar, Jr. returns to the organization he started in pro ball with as the new manager - aka can't wait on the Guardians forever.
  6. And this is also why you have a grizzled, yet still effective veteran Case Keenum as your back up that you are paying $6M this season Time for Stefanski to look Baker right in the eyes and tell him that he loves his work ethic and his attitude, but he is hurt. We need him for the bulk of the season. Sit him this week when you can exploit the Chargers' lower level rushing defense. See how it feels next week.
  7. No chemistry issue with Odell - put that puppy to bed. Baker legitimately hurt.
  8. I cannot find it now, but I saw a tweet noting the Chargers run defense. IIRC, 70% of the run plays against the Chargers go away from Joey Bosa, and net over 5 ypc. Those at Bosa - 3ypc. Then there is this. Maybe we get a call or two this week?
  9. This is the second consecutive game that Baker has been "off" - missing wide open receivers. That is not the Baker we saw in 2020 and for 1-1/2 games this season. So, something has definitely gone off the rails. So, to me, the solution to getting Baker back to being Baker is this. I think there is just enough pain remaining in his left shoulder that it is causing Baker to overthink his throws - instead of just reading the field and reacting. Time for a heart to heart talk with the coaches. I'm sure medical tests up the wazoo have already been done. If the coaches sign off on Baker be
  10. Has this gotten as far yet as to determine what type of new stadium will be built, wherever the location? When First Energy Stadium in Cleveland was being planned, the NFL preyed on the city leaders desperation to get a team back. With the abbreviated time crunch the NFL placed on the city, the only viable option was to build First Energy Stadium on the site of old Municipal Stadium, and in its current configuration - open air, grass stadium. Now, that qualifies as a missed opportunity. Had more time been afforded, a better option in my mind would have been a hard dome/retractable ro
  11. Did a quick scan over the Vikings Defensive stats, and it is promising for us. I am attaching the link, but just cruising over them - this is what stood out: 1 out of every 3 third downs is being converted. They are surrendering 120 ypg on the ground, and they are surrendering 409 yards of offense per game. Their rush defense has surrendered 4.8 ypp, and the same for the total offense is 6.8 ypp. And they have yet to see a pair of backs of the quality of Chubb and Hunt. They are surrendering 26 ppg. Baker knows his effort against the Bears was sub par by his standa
  12. I really really hope this is coach gamesmanship between Stef and Nagy. Because it is beginning to reek like the tail is walking the dog.
  13. WHOA - Did NOT see this one coming.... I would think that this HAS to mean that OBJ debuts for 2021 on Sunday.
  14. Expected Roster move this week - Jarvis to IR for a three week stay. WR Davion Davis is activated from the suspended list and onto the 53. Will OBJ then be active? TBD.
  15. Yeah, I was too lazy to look it up earlier, but AFCCG is Sun. Jan 30 at 3 - SB is Feb. 13th. You all can make me feel better about last Sunday's game by doing me one big favor...... Kick the ever living snot out of Lamar and the Ratbirds this weekend.
  16. Bingo! We acted like Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce were unknowns to us. That was a bad mistake on our part. But NFL games are never perfect, so it was what it was. I just want to take the game for just that. We gave one of the best teams in the AFC all they wanted before coming up short. It was a wonderful game. Congrats to all of you - see you in January or February.
  17. I come in peace from the Land of the Walleyes. As hurting as we are today, and having taken 24 hours to remove myself from the heat of the moment, I want to extend my congratulations to your squad on a hell of a win yesterday. Three primary reasons we came up short yesterday. 1). - Chubb's 3rd quarter fumble. Up until that point, everything was going our way. Our offense was humming to stay ahead of your offense that was playing just as well. But good defense on your part, helmet went right on the ball and out it popped. 2). - Gillan's fumbled punt snap - Are you freaking k
  18. If Delpit is IR'ed prior to the final 53 - he is done for the season. He must be on the 53 man roster in Sept. (and I think it is through game 1) to be eligible to return.
  19. Willie Harvey to the rescue! Montrel Meander back too https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2021/08/20/browns-sign-montrel-meander/
  20. Looks like we didn't completely dodge the injury bullet. TE Carlson rumored to be done for 2021. https://www.cleveland.com/browns/2021/08/mack-wilson-and-stephen-carlson-awaiting-mri-results-some-injured-browns-due-back-tuesday.html
