  1. Haden a Steeler

    I miss Joe Haden. Even if you don't. I miss him playing for PIT. His backup allowed a 75 yard TD on Thursday Night Football. He provided horrendous coverage on that play. Then he got an INT later in the game, so I guess we can consider his play to be erratic.

    How long will it take to get used to seeing him in black and yellow? Some doctors said "anywhere from a 4-8 week injury, Haden could return as soon as Week 15 vs. the which is probably doubtful, or he could be out until the playoffs." It was a strange hit. The ball was snapped and the receiver instantly bowled him over and wiped him out. His backup, the no-name CB, Coty Sensabaugh played well in spite of not playing much at all for the past 3 seasons.

    Haden broke his leg. Quite a disappointment. He is such a cool guy and I was so happy for him.
  4. Haden a Steeler

    Glad to see that it worked-out for CLE as well. If PIT is paying too much for a number 2 CB, well that's par-for-da-course, as they have not done well at that position for a long time. Joe Haden got his first INT as a Steeler then kept the ball for his trophy case, or so I thought, when he ran off the field, and then he gave it to a fan wearing his number. WoW, yins knew how cool he was, I'm just learning. He always had a good vibe about him. I liked him when he was with CLE as well.
  5. Haden a Steeler

    UPDATE: Seven weeks later PIT is #1 against the pass. It's not because of Joe Haden alone. He has played well but there has been an improved pass-rush and the rookie corner, Burns has matured a bit. Joe Haden replaced Ross Sockrell on the roster, who has since started one game with NYG and is not playing as well as Joe Haden. Haden covered the Chiefs Tyree Hill quite well in week 6, limiting Hill to two receptions for 15 yards against Haden in coverage. Haden also had an INT while covering AJ Green in week 7 against CIN. PIT had a hole to fill and Joe Haden filled-in nicely. PIT has improved at the position. The GM was thrilled to get him, saying that guys like Haden are usually not available - in that quality veterans are either over-priced or over-the hill. He was not worth was CLE was paying him. He's considered to be a good guy in the locker room, the press likes him and he has become a fan favorite. Thus far, things have worked out quite well.
  6. This Week in the AFC North

    Everyone lost, mostly to terrible teams. The whole division sucks.
  7. Kizer

    Colin Kaepernick is still . . . . . That new kid Kizer will probably be good or even great some day but why not win some games this season? We already been through the Tim Ouch syndrome. Do we really need to go through that again? CLE already had it's love fest with the police and army at their opening day ass-kissing event, so nobody will ever question that the Browns maybe don't love apple pie.
  8. Browns @ Colts Practice Reports

    CLE at IND is the only 0-2 winless match-up this week. BAL is probably the best team in the division by far. So, CLE goes from playing one of the best to playing one of the worst teams which should give us a decent perspective on how good CLE really is. PIT (2-0) is not playing well but has benefited from playing a very soft schedule, CLE - MIN (starting QB out) and now the 0-2 Bears. PIT will get their reality check next week at BAL.
  9. ***Official Browns Vs. Steelers Game Day Thread***

    They both looked like Retarded children.
  10. ***Official Browns Vs. Steelers Game Day Thread***

    Neither team played very well. The blocked punt was the difference maker. The CLE offense and defense played well enough to beat PIT on that day, but the punting unit was not up to the task. Subsequent punts were close to being blocked as well. Steelers gave Joe Haden the game ball as this was his first opening day win in his life. . . . so it was not for his play, which was adequate but not great. PIT needed help at that position and Haden filled-in nicely. The CLE – O line played well as virtually all of the sacks appeared to be coverage sacks. Joe Haden had one of the sacks on that corner blitz and helped cause all of the others with his decent but not great coverage. Kizer looked like a rookie with the potential of greatness, but the 7 sacks looked like the Tim Ouch syndrome. It looks like CLE finally has a legitimate starting QB who will eventually surpass Ben Roethlisberger as the winningest QB in Cleveland (since the return). Roethlisberger just surpassed Derek Anderson as the winnigest QB in Cleveland with 11 wins. Roethlisberger is 21-2 against Cleveland in the regular season as a starter and has 436 completions, 5,753 passing yards (2.7 miles) and 37 touchdown passes (222 points.) He is from Oho and is the winningest QB in Cleveland. Maybe yinz should be a fan of his by now? He hasn’t raped anybody for a while now, so maybe he’s not such a bad guy any more? Yins just got to see him pass Fran Tarkenton on the all-time list for yards, making him 9th. Content credit to the Pittsburgh Post Gazette.

    Yes, the mentality is to be mean and nasty under the leadership of Gregg "Bounty Hunter" Williams who brings that culture of being mean and nasty to CLE, but CLE's D would be better if they were disciplined and well-coached. Williams' defenses over the years have virtually always been very average and middle-of-the-pack in points and yards. Yeh he had a #1 D 17 years ago, so that must count for something.

    Well, yeh . . . That's where the teachings of Rabbi Yeshua ends and all of the BS of the church begins. Or if you want to go further back. consider that Torah says that Torah is all that there is and should ever be. We are commanded to neither add nor take away from Torah. That did not stop the Jews, Christians and Muslims from adding and adding and adding to create 3 different religions from one.
  13. This Is Steeler Week - At Home

    . . . . . considering that Le’Veon Bell has been somewhat injury prone and considering that Gregg Williams has run a bounty system with virtually every team he has ever coached, let's see if Le’Veon Bell makes it through the game.
  14. This Is Steeler Week - At Home

    Yes, you are correct. Munchak is amazing and he coaches the TE's blocking game as well. It may take a few games for the CLE - O line to start playing well. I have seen it take 14 games for an O line with average talent to start playing well together. So, don't expect CLE's O line to play well in game one. Le’Veon Bell is unlike anything I have ever seen, so try to allow yourself to appreciate that. Yes, he has a good line but he appears to have something magical in that he appears to be able to put defenders to sleep for a second or two or somehow freeze them. He plays the position in the opposite manner in which that position is taught and coached. He is slow. He is so slow that Center, M. Pouncey is a lead, downfield blocker for him from time-to-time. His yards per carry is 4.9 in each of the past two seasons. He is expected to play at CLE. I don't know if he will make it through the season as he never plays a whole season but he will be in CLE for game one. Try to appreciate it. He is from Ohio. That should count for something. Get yinz's popcorn ready.
  15. This Is Steeler Week - At Home

    I would like to think that you are smart enough to know that an O line needs to play together for a while to get good and that the fact that CLE signed free agent stars from other teams to play the O line only creates a potential for that O line to be good at a later point in time. The O line is not going to be great from the get go. - - - - but many of yinz were screaming that Brandon Weedon was going to be great from the get-go as well, so maybe it's just part of the culture here.
