brooks1957 Posted October 2, 2019 Share Posted October 2, 2019 Yes it's true..... The Browns appear on Monday Night Football again.......... kinda sorta. Sometime Sunday, the team depart Hopkins on their heading for a land far far away. It is foreboding It is The Land of Alcatraz! But alas, even though this is a planned business trip, the team will still have time to check out the local scenery. They detour to the beach and to check out the local eye candy: As well as And before heading off to work, they catch one final glimpse of Now it is time to turn their attention back to And to the Night game that will be an afternoon game. We usually prepare to watch Monday NIGHT Football - however this game will kick off locally in the setting afternoon sun at 5:20 pm PDT, and wont become a true night game until about halftime. When I first looked at the schedule, I was confident of a Browns win. I still fell that way - but it will not be as easy as I originally thought. The 49ers are still undefeated in 2019, having beaten the Buccaneers in Florida, Cincinnati on the road, and then returned home to beat the Steelers. Then the NFL cruelly gave them a brutal bye week in week 4. Although the combined W-L total of their previous opponents is just 3-9, they are playing with a ton of confidence right now. They are the most successful franchise in the NFL on Monday Night games The 49ers are coached by one of the brightest young offensive minds in the NFL in Kyle Shanahan. Their QB, Jimmy Garappolo, is rounding himself back into form after losing most of 2018 to an ACL tear. Their running game is solid. The pretty much run a running back by committee setup - and their yards per carry is in the 5 ypc neighborhood. But the focal point of their offense has to be one of the young starts of the game - TE George Kittle. He has the ability to get open and make the tough 8-12 yard catch and keep the chains moving. Our defense better have their chin straps buckled up. I am hoping what I saw and felt last Sunday in Baltimore turns out to be true. The Browns, with all their star power, are beginning to grow into one cohesive unit instead of individual stars. Nick Chubb is the kind of back that can put the pumpkin heads on his back and carry them. Antonio Callaway is back this week - I hope the bulk of the remainder of the M*A*S*H unit returns as well. We will need them. Browns 24-21. 8 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
