  1. A Pittsburgh (steelers) sports writer has picked CLE to win the division. (for what it's worth - some off season banter) https://triblive.com/sports/football-footnotes-how-the-new-afc-north-might-look/

    We Need To Keep Lamar Jackson In The Pocket

    Rats favored by 6. We give them 3 for home field, so that tells us what the betting public thinks of the Browns vs. the division leader. It's a happy day to be a Browns-Steelers fan. Both games are at the same time, so there will be no waiting around for a result. All Steelers fans are Browns fans this week, so enjoy what may be the largest American football fan-base in the world.

    ***Official Browns @ Broncos Game Night Thread***

    It's a credit to the youth of the team. It's virtually impossible for a team of older guys to win a game at 1,500 meters elevation in the 4th quarter.

    It's capitalizing Retarded and I dunno why.

    Because we are fĂșcking stupid. Damn! I had figured dat U was smart enough to know dat, but what da fĂșck do I know anyways? Haden came to Pittsburgh to help the Retarded children, which is all of us. He is very busy. He has not gotten to help me yet, but I'm in line and on the list.

    With PIT arriving in Denver in a few days, Adam Jones was just released by DEN. I think he can still play at a high level, just not at 5,000 feet. Like Jones, I'm old and I live at 5,200 feet, so I know it's not very easy here. The Steelers would pick him up if it was simply based on his abilities, but he is not the kind of character that PIT signs.

    Steelers exposed?

    Did you See His Handoff Though?

    92 Effing yards

    That's cool. Nice one. These guys can be scary good. I'm glad PIT got finished with with CLE and got away with one win and a tie. The loss would be next.

    Baker shaded Haley hard after the game.....

    Notice the 20 ATT today. That's a big change in the right direction. Run the ball for 200 yards and limit the rookie to 20 ATT's is how to win games.

    61% of Ben's completions were to receivers at or behind the LOS. 70% of the completions were made within 6 yards of the LOS. Two out of the 5 TD passes were to receivers at or behind the LOS. The O-line was blocking for the receivers. The 158.3 passer rating was achieved through high completion percentage passes. A quick release, dink-and-dunk QB is not who Ben Roethlisberger is; but he had his most efficient game by not being who he is. In his 207th NFL start, we saw his most efficient performance ever. Yes, he has posted a 158.3 twice before but not with 5 TD's and one sack.

    3-4 defense....

    Exactly; the old 3-4 / 4-3 is an archaic way to look at a defense. The Patriots play a 4-3, but only about 15% of all snaps occur with 4 lineman. The only numbers that matter to me on defense are points per game allowed PPG. The Browns are ranked 28th out of 32 teams, allowing 27.4 PPG. That is shitty, even for a Greg Williams defense; his defenses are usually in the middle of the pack.

    I didn't even see any contact. Maybe you can see some contact on the replay but I only saw it at full game speed. It looked like a miss. . . . . . ummmm OK, in slow motion, I can see the hit. It looked avoidable.

    Yes. the Panthers are probably the best team that the Steelers have played thus far. Your CAR 34 PIT 26 prediction is valid in that I would not have been surprised, had that been the result.

    Bruce Arians

    Everybody always blames Butch Davis' prevent defense call for that 2003 playoff loss to the Steelers but it was Bruce Arians who caused the Browns to lose that lead because the Browns could not run the ball effectively and kept going pass-pass-pass 3 and out, taking virtually no time off the clock, giving the ball back to Tommy Maddox. In that 4th quarter, the Browns were able to get only one first down rushing. Bruce Arians' offenses tend to be high on yards but low on points. Dan Rooney told him, "Run the ball better to keep your job here." He could not do it. Bruce Arians is a good judge of talent. He was instrumental in the draft for the Steelers, helping them pick some good guys. He always knew that Carson Palmer was a great QB, so he brought him to his team where Palmer had some of his most successful seasons.
