    Browns going after Ramsey

    Why would Wilks have to change his defensive philosophy to accommodate Ramsey?

    Your fantasy football team would all be A&M Freshmen vs. the rest of the NFL.

    Cowherd takes more shots at Baker

    It may be a combination of both.. the sideline is not getting the play in on time causing him to have no time to read defenses/call changes etc. where he has to have the snap in short order....then yes....it can appear that a lack of time can cause a lack of focus. Many things done in a hurried manner are done sloppily. Including having to play QB in the NFL.

    Cowherd takes more shots at Baker

    I think Baker's "problems" are 75% not HIS problem.....but the problem of the coaching and the OL. I will give you that Baker has had some bad, off target throws. But he is rushed to get the play off every time because the plays come in late....and he has not time to read the defenses or do other things necessary to total success. It puts him totally off his rhythm. His leaky OL doesn't help. Not saying they have been horrible....but they could have been a damned sight better. Plus, really he is learning a new offense.

    Chad Kelly waived

    I was, but it is looking worse and worse for him....not because of his talent but because of his immaturity. Maybe a stint in the new XFL until he grows up?

    You do. Putting people on ignore...as you say you do, is the ultimate in timidity and pusillanimity.

    Touting Aggies that are on this team is fine. Touting guys that are still sophomores in college as saviors for this Browns team in some distant future....not so much. (and I rarely ever get tickets)

    Rams' game reality check

    Kirksey out for the year? I have heard nothing about that.

    Browns going after Ramsey

    I also heard the Steelers are interested.....but what do they have to offer? They gave up their first for Minkah.....unless the Jags are willing to take like 2 first rounders in subsequent years. But, if the Steelers do that...then people would wonder about this new regime. Dan Rooney ain't there any more. We could end up with another Rooney Rule....similar to the Stepien Rule.

    Browns going after Ramsey

    Why?

    Browns going after Ramsey

    With a lot of 3 WR sets, having 3 cover corners on the field is certainly NOT unwarranted. And as you said, some of these guys could have the versatility to play at FS or SS at times.

    Panic mode

    Were you born between 1927/28 and 1945? That is what is considered the Silent Generation. But if you were born between 1946 and 1964...you come with a Booming loud voice.
  13. still not impossible to catch the Twins. 4 back with 9 to play. Very difficult, not impossible.

    Jackson played the Dolphins and the Cardinals....the two worst teams in the league. He could have been distracted all he wants and he could have won those games. Besides...have you heard Jackson talk? He can barely speak English, and when he does he sounds like a Goombah. No one wants a spokesman like that. Very difficult to understand him when he talks:

    Browns going after Ramsey

    But you want all the talented players you can get. Ramsey is extremely talented...likely one of the 5 best DBs in the league. I think him likely better than anything the Browns could draft next year in round 1.

    Roethlisberger out for the year

    I heard they were talking but not that anything was done.

(Maybe it has the most rain as well?)
  19. Me too. But, honestly, I am just not sold on either Kyle Shanahan as an HC or Garrapolo at QB. Maybe they will prove themselves this year. They have kicked the shit out of the Bucs and Bengals. Not the stiffest competition.....but they did manhandle them.

    That being Devlin Hodges...whom I referred to elsewhere. As for Rudolphs, I think actually, Mason is better looking than Maya. Let's put it this way.....she scares me more than he does.
  24. Uh, Uhm....Aaron Donald primarily is considered a DT and lines up on the interior of the line...so it is better play from the OGs and OCs that would be need to hold him off. I suppose the OTs have to help some on him...but they have duties vs. DEs and OLBs.
