    The scuttlebutt has been they know the trade market for a TE would open. I think he’s a better blocking McBeast when healthy. Would love some 21 and 22 with Vance and Kyle.

    We released Matt McCrane. Either Boz is better or they like the competition better.

    If they showed that much interest in my kid? Absolutely. Unless it was you Stankees.

    So I love our third round pick Justin Layne. Grew up a Browns fan, and on draft day he was wearing Browns socks. As soon as the Steelers drafted him, he took off the socks and went barefoot. His dad started throwing out all their Browns gear. The story made its way into the local Pittsburgh news, and Justin was asked about why they did that, and he said “they told me how much they wanted me then disrespected me.” Recently his whole family left Cleveland, and he tweeted:

    I'm talking change in plays per game. The percent of plays per game mean very little. Like those pre and post injury numbers mean very little if we ran out of the shotgun 4 times a game before the injury and 10 times a game after the injury. If you honestly think that his finger injury doesn't have that big of effect on the offense I'm not sure what to say. I'm trying to find a quote to back it up, but there was certainly even quotes from Fitchner that said they had to mix things up to compensate that he couldn't stake a snap from center without pain.

    That's a 10% shift. That's significant.

    So the fact that the shift happened at the exact same time is just coincidence.

    I disagree. In football that’s a huge difference. Lets say say you got off the league average 64 plays. 45/55 run pass for about 29 runs per game. 17% means 4.9 per game. 22% is 6.336. So another run plus per game for an overall 2 run swing. That’s less unpredictability you can have.

  10. I think they go big in TE sets, bring in a tryout or two, get a trade done close to camp.
  11. I mean....the more people hate him the more I watch that I like.....just saying.
  12. And that's cool and all, but that's what you are starting to get in the 4th round. Flawed guys that are either developmental or limited.
  13. He's what, a 4th round pick? You are picking upside at that point. And like I said, coming in as a QB and converting to TE means he's still learning a lot about the position that he didn't know and didn't work on a ton. Like the chest catching, route running, and blocking.
  14. I honestly don't get the hate on the Gentry pick. He's only been a TE for 3 years.
