  1. Come on warfelg, you know better lol. I expect a feisty, close game. Browns offense: One thing that scares me is that how much Pittsburgh likes to blitz. These aren't your grandpa's blitzes either - they're well designed and executed. Up until this point the Browns have mainly faced 4-man rushes with a little blitzing sprinkled in. Will Baker commit turnovers? Will the Steelers give up bigger plays? How will they balance defending the run vs. the pass in the well prepared Stefanski wide zone offense? So many question marks up until this point. I have a bad feeling about our PA rollouts - I can see someone like Watt disrupting all of it. Browns defense: So far the Browns have generated a ton of pressure with just 4-man rushes and zone coverage, trying to imitate the legion of boom Seahawks defense. Our talent is nowhere near that, which leads to huge mistakes in the secondary that a QB like Ben can feast on. Attack our safeties down the field and you'll wind up with 30 points - simple as that. The only reason the Browns defense has been forcing turnovers is because of the play of the defensive line. Myles is having a fantastic year. Will he be able to pressure Ben into turnovers, or will Ben tear apart the sloppy zone coverage of the Browns defense?
  2. People are prisoners of the moment. On full-blown emotional tilts week by week - honestly not sure how they survive every day.
  3. Gardner Minshew doesn't have a great offensive line or weapons either. D.J. Chark is all he got, and even when D.J has missed time Minshew didn't look as bad as Darnold has. Jets defense > Jags defense too. I feel like people are just clinging onto Darnold and will use every excuse possible just because they had him valued highly as a franchise QB and don't want to be wrong about him.
  4. This year has been terrible for injuries. I'm frustrated that pretty much the Browns entire back 7 is injured. Couldn't imagine what Niners fans feel like.
  5. I get that Darnold is in a bad situation but he's nowhere near the first QB to have it rough. I've watched 20 years of Browns QBs in horrendous situations with nothing at the skill positions, O-line, coaches, organization, etc... and none of them seemed to generate the kind of sympathy that I've seen given to Darnold. Is it because he's in NY? I don't exactly feel 'sorry' for him in that sense. It happens and it's gonna continue to happen in the league. Given his situation I don't think he's performed badly at all so I also don't understand the people that want to trash him.
  6. The criticism has been ridiculous. Kid is gonna be REALLY good. His 2nd game ever during prime time - he has been awesome.
  7. Well, they know on a TD play it will automatically be reviewed. Better to just rule it a TD when not completely sure. It'll be overturned.
  8. It's one of those things players sometimes take advantage of. Maybe the official calls the hold on b2b plays but they'll NEVER call it 3 times in a row or much more than they already did.
  9. The prisoner of the moment fan version of me predicted 26-23 Browns. But the logic side of me picked the Ravens to win when I did the season record prediction. In a nutshell, gun to my head I'm picking the Ravens to win but I think the Browns CAN win and should make it competitive.
  10. Tons of people can't stand Mary Kay Cabot. She's a terrible beat reporter. Richardson's comments were sorta taken out of context. He was repeatedly asked about Lamar again and again and what he expected them to do even after he said Lamar is 'videogame good', saying it's like playing Madden.. Still could've been worded better with the Aaron Rodgers bit, but his point was that he expected the Ravens to play to their strengths and run the ball.
  11. I'd argue Money Mitch has been BETTER than Greedy all of last year and in camp this year. He's such an underrated player for us. MJ Stewart has had a great camp as well. CB is our deepest position on defense so I'm not TOO worried unless we suffer another injury. Kevin Johnson is recovering well and may only miss a few games, and who knows maybe Greedy returns week 2 or 3.
  12. I agree in that I'd like to see us rely on the ground. But I wanna see some big, downfield passes off the PA. I think it's important to try to get some quick scoring drives off chunk plays, as that would put a lot of pressure on Lamar Jackson to beat us with his arm (not that he can't, but the Ravens are clearly a much better team with the dual threat). I think Marlon Humphrey is underrated but his strength is his physicality. I think OBJ could get him over the top a couple times.
  13. It's interesting that he said that. I hope we don't exclusively run man-to-man vs. the Ravens. Lamar eats man-to-man defense up for breakfast. It's how Wade Phillips got torched - all the DBs have their backs turned covering their assignments and Lamar is 20 yards down the field before they even realize it.
  14. Browns haven't won a season opener since 2004. Incidentally, it was against the Baltimore Ravens. We are 1-0 against Baltimore in season openers... let's make it 2-0!
  15. What a sad thread. I got the Browns winning 26-23. Lamar is rusty after the weird offseason. Chubb gets 150 total yards and a TD. We always play the Ravens hard, and homefield advantage is virtually non-existent with no fans in the stadium.
