    ***Official Browns Vs. Panthers Game Day Thread***

    I'm watching the game again and it's glorious. Lol. I tell you what, I know Joseph missed that extra point, but he made two giant kicks. He misses that last FG from around 41 yards, and the Panthers can kick the FG to tie it. But instead they had to go for the TD and thank God they didn't just give it to McCaffery every down because he likely would have gotten in.

    I got to watch the game with my Pops and we had a blast. I didn't get to chat too much in the Tavern and I definitely missed you guys, but it was a very fun day. I loved how we won a game that had multiple costly mistakes by us in it. We didn't let the mistakes kill us, and we kept fighting. The defense shut it down in the second half, and we kept trucking. We were down by 3 points and we went down the field and grabbed the lead. How freaking cool is that? I loved overcoming the inexecusable mess-ups. The Higgins fumble, the AWFUL Landry fumble, the inexplicable Higgins drop that probably would've went for a freaking TD (we settled for FG). I tell ya, that throw Mayfield made to Higgins that he dropped....man...that thing was a freaking DART. Can't believe Higgins dropped that. To be fair, Higgins somehow caught the 3rd and 9 pass with a guy all over him...that was great. But still...let's work on ridding the awful mistakes, and play even better this week. We're having too many fumbles, and we need to secure the ball.

    Ghoolie, I was BLOWN AWAY by the Jarvis touchdown run by the goal line, and then blown away AGAIN when we ran it again on 3rd and 2. We've been the victim of far too many WR runs, and I've been jealous of other teams that incorporate WR runs and other misdirection plays. That play near the goal line was perfectly designed AND executed. Joel Bitonio was literally about to CRUSH that DB if he even tried to tackle Landry. Like, Bitonio was coming full steam ahead, and the DB wanted NONE of it. LMAO How about staying aggressive with the pass at the end of the game? I mean, that pass to Perriman was NOT easy, and while he ran out of bounds due to momentum, it still gave us the opportunity to take off some clock AND provide us with some breathing room. Not only that, we threw the ball AGAIN on the short pass to Chubb, and honestly, that play SHOULD HAVE WORKED for at least 10 yards, but it only got a couple because the Panthers have Luke Keuchly, who obviously isn't human. Teams almost always sell out on the run there, but somehow Keuchly was ready for it, LOL. But still, you see the aggressiveness. We weren't just going to line up 3 times in a row off-tackle. Kitchens has the edge, I can see it.

    How nice has Breshad Perriman been for us? That was NOT an easy catch by any measure on the first play of the game, and then to haul that catch in late in the 4th? Yes sir. I'm happy for the guy. I'm not saying that we still don't need WR help, but this guy is coming back next year, I can promise you that. He blocks down field, hustles his butt off, says all the right things, genuinely understands what a blessing it is to play NFL football. And I'm not sure there isn't more he can give, either. He certainly has "the look" out there. I'm telling you now, I'm not so sure we can get rid of Freddie Kitchens. This offense is fresh, exciting, and attacking. We also don't zero in on any one player to carry the load, so we're difficult to plan against. Sure Landry is a focal point, but we don't force to him anymore. Kitchens isn't afraid to try new things, different formations, whatever might give an edge. My one complaint is the lack of Duke Johnson, but we'll figure it out. I don't expect to win the last 3 games, I really don't, but if the offense keeps looking strong, and Baker keeps improving, I'm just not sure you can let Kitchens go. On a side note, Baker's accuracy is stupid amazing. It's not something you see all the time. He can truly spin it.

    Omg, what a game. This felt like the exact kind of game that we would've lost the past few years, ya know? The missed extra point (after making the first one, lol), the two awful fumbles (Wtf), then having a 6 point lead with the opposition driving? Just unbelievable. Learning how to win ugly is so important in the NFL. Things won't always go your way, but can you come together as a team and make JUST enough plays to win? Yes, yes we can.

    I really want to see our defense step it up today. I felt like they couldn't get off the field last game, and while they did an admirable job of forcing FG's, they allowed Houston to drain way too much of the clock. We need to own 3rd down today, keep McCaffery in check, and get back to forcing turnovers. We do that, and I honestly think the offense will take care of itself. We have to avoid the early deficit so we can get back to leaning on the ground game, even if Carolina is stout against the rush. Don't buy into this nonsense about Cam being injured and not playing well. He didn't throw 4 picks because of a sore shoulder last week, he threw them because he was forcing the ball. You can expect about 75 targets to McCaffery today, and we will be tested against our age-old nemesis....the SCREEN PASS! (DUN-DUN-DUNNNNN!) Norv Turner is the master of screens, and he'll also use Cam in QB draws and other designed runs, regardless of shoulder problems. The bottom line to this game is to NOT get down early so we can keep pounding the rock. Eventually Chubbinator will break one off and we'll break them. I also really feel like we're going to finally get our first defensive touchdown. It's time. (Jamie Collins...I'm looking at YOU) We're not going to blow them out, but I do think we win for the home crowd. Browns win by about 7. Oh, one more thing. This game is important for many reasons, but perhaps most of all it will show us how we stack up. We've played three extremely good teams (Chiefs, Bolts, Texans) and all three pounded us to pieces. (well the Saints are quite strong and we should have won, but whatever) OK, fine...we're not among the best teams in the league, I think we knew that. However, now we're playing a team that's lost 4 straight and appears to be in a state of disarray. Once proudly sitting at 6-2, the Panthers now languish at 6-6, fighting for their playoff lives. Can we step on the throat of a struggling team while we are at home? Can we harness that crowd energy and make the big plays we've so desperately needed? Can our defense set the edge this week and stop giving up loads of ground yards? McCaffery is no joke, and he WILL go to the house on you. This team has been mostly competitive, but they're struggling. I'm interested to see how we respond to getting our butts kicked, and then how we look against a fledgling opponent.

    Dang it to heck. Forecast was looking perfect just the other day. Ugh. Well, wait a minute. I just checked the weather and it says mostly clear. Hmmmmm. I myself HATE bad weather games, so I'm hoping for clear and cold!

    Coming to the Panther game this Sunday

    Dang, wish I was there with you guys. I don't know why, but I'm as excited for this game as any game this season. I think it's because I want to see how Baker responds to a disastrous first half of last week, and I want to see if he can continue his torrid second half. Like I said before, some of the throws he made in the second half were insane accurate, and the few that weren't perfect were caught in spectacular fashion by our receivers. We turned it over on downs because we didn't need FG's, and the Callaway fumble hurt us, but we figured that team out in the second half, and I'm hoping we start MUCH faster on both sides of the ball. Offensive 3 and outs happen from time to time, and we've gotten a bit spoiled with Baker because they don't seem to surface nearly as much, but the defense has to be able to own 3rd down, ESPECIALLY 3rd and long, and get the opposition off the dang field. We had two 3rd and VERY longs last week that our defense gave up, and there was no excuse. The one 3rd and 12 where Watson just dumped it off to the RB was absolutely INFURIATING. There was literally nobody around the RB, and that CAN'T happen against McCaffery. Anyways, the Panthers are ranked in the 20's against the pass in various statistics, and I don't believe they get to the QB much or intercept the ball. Their corners aren't great, and Baker should be able to find open receivers. If you have Callaway or Landry on your fantasy team, I'd start them for sure. Also, for those going to the game the weather APPEARS to be solid. We know it can change in the blink of an eye, but I want to say that it's going to be kind of clear and cold, around 36 degrees. Dress warmly, cheer loudly, and bring home another W. I predict a Browns victory. Myles gets two sacks, Baker two TD passes, and we get hurt by McCaffery, but ultimately score more points and pull away in the second half. Oh, and this is the game where we finally get a defensive score. I feel it. Panthers - 26 Browns - 33

    I wouldn't be surprised in the least to see Perriman have a big game soon. The one thing I can say about Baker is that he doesn't lock in on any one guy. I think when he started he tended to look for Landry, but that's not the case now. If you're open, he'll find you. The completely odd thing is that Perriman was known to have issues with his hands, but they've been basically perfect (knock on wood) with us. I could see him hurting Carolina this week, and that'd be fine with me.

    The Browns Have the #1 Fans in ANYTHING!

    The fact that we're not a "major market" is what makes the ranking so insane. Cleveland is a blue collar town and really has nothing to do with national media. We fans are passionate, loyal, and maybe a little nuts. I know that I went bonkers this year for a few weeks before pulling my head from my ass. I've already told my stories of getting picked on in school for being a fan, and while it didn't traumatize me or anything, it did sort of galvanize my adoration for my team and make me all the more loyal. I'll say this, God help the sporting world if we ever REALLY get it going. It'll be Browns freaking mania. We were pretty close to being a wildcard contender this year. Heck, VERY close. And oddly enough, we have Hue Jackson to thank for our current situation. Had Hue started Baker to begin with, there's a chance our team would have had a record too good to warrant firing him. If that makes sense. Now, we're basically the darling anticipated vacancy, and virtually any available coach is going to consider us. When is the last time we could say THAT? What was Mike Pettine? Our 32nd choice? Of course, this is assuming we even NEED a new coach, and if Gregg Williams has the boys playing well these last 4 games, Dorsey may not be able to justify cutting him loose. That being said, there are no cupcakes left on the schedule. Denver and Baltimore are on fire, Carolina has lost 4 in a row but only played 1 bad game, and Cincy is probably the best chance to win. I'm HOPING to split and go 2-2, but that's going to be tough. I'll say this though, we win this weekend and maybe there's a chance we get super hot and reel off a streak.

    Browns vs Texans

    Ya know, I won't lie. I was absolutely incensed after the fumble. But then I looked at Callaway laying face down on the turf, defeated, exhausted, and looking like he wanted the field to swallow him up. I saw my QB run over to put both hands on helmet and reassure him that it'll be ok. I realized that we basically hit two 75 yard TD passes in a row to the same guy. We haven't had much luck hitting Callaway deep, so to see Baker throw those two balls and Callaway to make those plays....yeah...I was smiling. Even if I knew it essentially cost us any chance at the game. Make no mistake, Callaway has star potential. You're right in that his fumble was awful and inexcusable, but he simply didn't see the guy to his right, and he thought he was in. He had to be extremely gassed, and the defender made the play of his life. It just really sucked. Even if we lose 29-21, that just FEELS better to me. Ugh, it was so frustrating, but I still see the silver lining. Also, you don't want a piece of Callaway on turf. That kid is FAST. My biggest and basically ONLY concern with Callaway is him doing something stupid and getting the boot.

    Yep, not quite the same. But...he still looked pretty damn good. Lol On another note, Benjamin is one of my FSU boys, but even I can't speak up for him. Apparently he's a magnificent douche nozzle, and he's lazy, slow, and isn't known to be a team player.
