    I could see that. I'm just not willing to trust 100% that both Stanley is coming back ready to go and Mekari continues to play at this level. It's possible but I think it'd be foolish to count on that. I think OT is - along with LB - one of the weakest parts of our team. I'd like to see them address it with a high pick.

    I remember when he looked good at center for a significant stretch (better than Skura) and that devolved to awful over time. I'd sign Mekari to a utility contract like we had James Hurst back in the day. He has value and will likely be needed to play somewhere, but I wouldn't consider him a strong locked in solution at any position.

  2. In theory he is the second or third (after Humphrey) most important player on our team. However, with Lamar a lot of times blocking can be covered up, so it often seems like it doesn't matter. But there can also be games like the Raiders game where it is just untenable and pressure shuts everything down, which could definitely doom the team in a theoretical playoff game.

    I’m nervous for next week. I don’t want my current high to be crushed. 

    Herbie looked terrible against the blitz on Sunday. That's how you get blown out against the Ravens. If Wink can dial those up, and screens aren't working, the defense is going to hunt. How's Burrow been in that regard?

    Other than that, this team vulnerable on enough levels that we should have a lot more of those down to the wire games.

    I just want to add that I love the little jet sweeps we do with Duvernay. With how dominant our run game is and how often those edge players have to respect the QB/RB, it just gives us like a free 10 yards every time.

    He's always been good at this. And Hollywood has always been bad at this. Hollywood is shockingly terrible with the ball in his hands for someone who is elite at getting open.

    The old idea that Harbs has a blanket rule against playing younger players is out the window this year. Oweh you could argue the position left little to no choice, but that's a lot of snaps with Proche and Duvernay already proving their worth and always-getting-open-but-Lamar-doesn't-see-him Boykin back.

    Great to see because Bateman's going to be really important this year. Other than the drop, he also had a couple poor reps blocking on the edge with poor technique; pretty sure he got away with a hold as well. It didn't matter in this game, but another thing that he should work out on the field.

    it was a ticky tacky call

    not enough to be up in arms about, but he does have a right to the ball and the contact in getting there wasn't severe

    I didn't get a great look, TBH, just saw the arm there. 

    Now the Browns are flag imploding though...
