    OUR "Hard Knocks" Thread

    I didn’t think it was a terrible way to go about it. The kid has to learn how to deal with being under a microscope and successes and failures under said microscope. A public apology to his teammates and cameras is a baby step towards that.

    Calloway is a big time introvert. I’m not sure l’ve ever seen a prodessional athlete as uncomfortable with public speaking or in front of a camara than he is. For him, that apology to the team was probably one of the most difficult things he was asked to do in camp. I bet he rehearsed that one sentence a thousand times in his mind beforehand. It’s something that really interests me about him. Everyone likes recognition for what they are good at, and for a plus athlete that means stuff like interviews, public appearance, and commercials, and that stuff is waaay outside his comfort zone right now. Most professional and plenty of college athletes get coaching on what to say in interviews and how to handle those limelight situations. If his career works out he will get better at these things, but right now it’s very evident he has a hard time with it.

    OUR "Hard Knocks" Thread

    A few random musings from the most recent episode. I can’t seem to help myself from watching them twice. I’m really liking Todd Haley. This sentiment has been said by others, so l guess l’m just echoing that, but man he seems like a real genuine dude with an even keeled and confident approach to dealing with everyone in the building and on the field. That is the oldest l have ever seen Jim Brown look. I know he’s old and all, but he looks like he’s aged 10 years since last year. There’s something about Tyrod Taylor’s communication style that l really like. He strikes me as one of those guys who speaks only when he needs to, and therfore commands attention when he actually does. A quiet confidence kind of thing. There was a random scene where his dad showed up and he signed a football for him, glanced over his shoulder and waved, and over walks Baker. He beckoned a #1 pick without uttering a word. Is it me or does Baker sound like he makes Waterboy-esque squeals when he makes a TD throw?

    RC Cola for the win!

    I really dug the Mental Floss article within the link. Basically a history of cola and diet cola and the innovative, dastardly, and zany lengths those companies took to keep their product on top.

    Cory Coleman Traded

    https://www.dawgsbynature.com/2018/8/15/17691652/corey-coleman-asked-hue-jackson-to-trade-him-after-demotion Ok, apparently l had that all wrong. This says it was within 24 hours of the argument in the office. The demotion must have been so recent that they didn’t have time or inclination to update the depth chart because he was listed as a starter the day he got traded.

    Cory Coleman Traded

    I get the impression there was some clever editing with that opening sequence on HK that culminated with him getting traded. I think that argument in Hue’s office where he asked to be traded happened a good week before he was actually traded, and l personally didn’t interpret it like he was REALLY asking to be traded, it was just something he said because he was upset. Early camp stories were about Coleman dropping balls...again, but then the narrative changed to him refusing a day off and stringing together a few good days in a row. He was literally first on the depth chart the day he was traded, so he was clearly getting playing time. Not that it matters much, but l don’t buy the explanation that “he asked to be traded” and think it’s more likely the FO just didn’t want him on the team or felt they had better options.

    Except for when he sounds like he’s going through puberty. When it’s time to change...

    Great humanizing story, but l don’t see it happening. All l can see is the overly supportive father being overly supportive behind home plate while his kid is at bat. That shìt never works past a certain age.

    I think you’re right, but l did have some luck last year finding some website that linked various radio feeds to stations that have the Browns game feed (and other NFL team radio feeds) and had some luck listening on my phone. Sometimes the signal was faint, but it beat nothing. I seem to have misplaced the site though. Argh. Oh, and it was a trial and error thing. Most links did not work, but there was one or 2 that did.

    Who Plays LT?

    I’ll plus 1 that. I recall Zeitler playing with a broken hand he sustained pretty early on in the season, and played pretty damn well. I’m hardly a Hue apologist, but Tretter can get a few vet days off imo. He had a history of injury prior to coming here but made it through the season last year and played well, so if a few slack off days helps him get through the season then l’m ok with it. I rewatched part of the first preseason game and l’m hard pressed to say who the better guard is right now, Corbett or Drango. Both had moments and both looked bad at times. I’d rate them as about equal right now. Corbett probably has the higher learning curve though, but he hardly looked great. Another thing that caught my eye was poor FB play. I know Vitale out and whoever filled in seemed to block the wrong guy or laid out a dud of a lead block more often than not.

    Who Plays LT?

    https://www.dawgsbynature.com/2018/8/13/17682892/two-browns-make-pffs-preseason-week-1-team-of-the-week Brief article on the “PFF all star team of the week” where they choose players based on a formula that balances good performance against extended playing time. So Taylor, who had a great performance but not a lot of playing time, did not make it. Two Browns did though. Njoku and Greg Robinson. Robinson apparently had quite the game in 44 snaps. Also read that in yesterday’s practice they slid Bitonio back to guard and put Robinson in for a few snaps with the starters. Food for thought.

    Dang, l didn’t realize Dayton ixnayed their radio coverage. That’s new as of this year. I did find an app called Tunein Radio that seems to advertise it will carry NFL games. I downloaded it but haven’t tried it yet.

    That’s what made his taunting penalty so puzzling. Who gets a taunting penalty for blessing someone?
