    I mean, raise your hand if you haven't* gotten your dick sucked in the Cheesecake Factory parking lot. ... exactly. We don't throw stones here, boys.

    Browns 2022 1st Round Pick

    You kicked SO much ass doing your research, you forgot to mention that Scherff's level of play at tackle got him kicked inside to guard because he couldn't hack it consistently in pass pro on the edge. As he is now a guard for the Skins. The Redskins spent a top 10 pick on a guard, believing they got a franchise tackle. To refresh, barring transcendent talent such as Quinten Nelson, top 10 picks aren't spent on guard play. Comparing a prospect you want to draft at tackle to Brandon Schreff is admitting your complete inability to evaluate a players skill set on your own and being dependent on the analysis of others. Not to mention your lack of attention to detail on how said prospect is currently holding up in the NFL. You sure did read a whole hell of a lot there, champ. And it's almost like somebody almost called Schreff's future move to guard while watching his Iowa tape... Oh wait... edit: Meanwhile Ali Marpet, another probowl guard, was taken in the later 2nd round. Much less draft capital invested in a value position that the 'Skins could have used to address pass rush or skill positions with.

    You'll have to trust me on this, having seen 2 of the 3 in person. Farve is a solid built 6'3, and was closer to 230lbs prime years. Baker is a shade under 6'1 in cleats and just north of 2 bills. Murray on the other hand is 5'10 in cleats and about 190lbs. I have no idea who he paid to inflate those combine numbers, but I'm sure it wasn't cheap.

    Baker Mayfield

    I've touched on this before, but the Browns do not have a QB-WR situation where one position group helps to overcome the shortcomings of the other. Generally, at least for your more stable teams with franchise QB's, you can overcome the loss of receivers. Tampa Bay doesn't have Godwin, Gronk is banged up, and they just lost AB over his insanity. Scotty Miller, Tyler Johnson and Cameron Brate stepped in to contribute and the wheels keep turning. There were multiple Whiskey. Tango. Foxtrot. moments in this game, but this play is really my frustrations in a nutshell. Because this should be pitch and catch. Our personnel and their inability to execute wasn't on the coaching staff. And it's the little plays like this where you take your cheap yards, stay on schedule and put together a positive drive. Here we are again with the empty sets. Broken record, I know, I know. Pre-snap, you can read potential space to work with for any sight adjustments. You can also do a box count and check the alignment of the defense along with a potential coverage shell and get an idea of how you'd like to attack this for those cheap yards. Either way, you know that corner as the most perimeter man and if your post-snap adjust dictates boxing him out with the receiver, then what you're looking to do is to just take advantage of your skill players getting quickly off the line and into space before the rushers along the line can drop back into their assignments. Reading hot... If #3 is coming on a pressure, you can hit that little fire pass to your TE to his inside or outside shoulder depending on leverage of the edge-most defender (2) If 3 drops inside over your TE and 2 comes on the pressure, then your #2 just works lateral away from all the traffic. Either way, this an attempt at an overload. The Dline shift means you're liking going to call a slide to pickup the estimated bodies. The DE to the boundary is already at more of a 4i tech. So Wills doesn't have to worry about setting to his outside edge and even if there was a slant called, the natural alignments makes it easy to widen out his rusher. Both 2 and 3 rushers come on a pressure. The Browns Oline has a slide call and the rush is picked up beautifully. This is quality protection. Two issues ruin this play. 1st - DPJ, instead of running flat immediately and getting away from traffic ASAP, runs 5 up then breaks out. It isn't a back breaking problem, but I've mentioned that even when this team does connect, the "polish" just isn't there. This team has struggled to get max YAC all year. I haven't seen the numbers, but if I had to guess, we're likely bottom half of the league in yards beyond expected YAC. Where example a team like San Fran leads the NFL in yards beyond expected YAC. The finality of the play.... - Baker could have cleaned this play up, but for reasons I can't understand, he double clutches instead of putting it outside or at worst... directly on DPJ. The ball ends up too high and too far back inside. Worst of all, both DPJ and Baker allowed for the one defender who could have ruined this play to recover. It's like losing a 2 on 1 fast break in Basketball. It's fucking embarrassing. I've mentioned this offense having this same issue several times before. It's not a coaching problem right there, this is an execution problem. Ultimately I need my QB to be able to cover up bad smells here and there from the players around him. That's why the QB is the most important piece and gets paid. Because if my QB position is settled, then I have my foundation to build around. But I've been going back and watching games as early as the 1st 1/3 of the season and this wasn't an uncommon sight. Routine plays that either didn't achieve the expected yards they could have, or were a complete bust. So when I hear Baker say things like "I know what I have to work on"... then he's setting himself up for either greatness or total failure. Because when his shoulder and body are right and should he continue to miss throws like this, he will not be the QB in Cleveland for the 2023 season at the price a franchise QB is found.

    Browns 2022 1st Round Pick

    Something else I'd like to point out on this and why Wills needs to be graded on a bit of a curve. I can't stress enough how Bakers pocket depth really gives headaches for our OT's. Tristan Wirfs gets to play with (arguably) the greatest to ever do it. As a result he's had a much smoother transition to the league and his grades reflect that. Not to knock his talent, he appears to be a quality player. Only relating that, our QB makes life a bit more difficult for his protection because his style of play. Therefore it takes a truly elite player to sort of "shine through" in this case. Wills could be a 10 year, fringe type pro-bowl tackle. And there's nothing wrong with that. But unless he's Joe Thomas, a lot of those 2nd tier players are going to have a lower grade than what they usually might because of what I've mentioned.

    Brett Farve is 6'3 225lbs. So by "almost exactly" then, sure... if you had 3 inches and 20lbs or so.

    You are mistaken, sir. He's "Drew Brees".

    Patrick Mahomes. Brett Farve. They're the same player. Change my mind.

    I ran the math on it... checks out. KC oline showing some of that same post-season spotty play that sunk them last year.

    In this same mold it is what looks to doom Dwayne Haskins career. Great physical tools, good fundamentals and can spin it with accuracy and anticipation. By all accounts he has refused to work hard in the NFL. It sucks because I believed he was a very capable prospect, and in that respect I suppose I wasn't wrong. In a sense I also suppose as Browns fans we should be grateful. He fell into a situation in Pittsbugh where he could helm a cornerstone and stable franchise but has failed to take the initiative. Clock is winding down and doesn't look good for him, similar to what possessed Rosen - just a lack of commitment.

    Always hurts my heart seeing Heyward in Pittsbugh. He was one of my favorite Buckeyes and a fantastic 3tech prospect. And we took Phil Taylor...

    Most likely, even though he's struggled beyond normal rookies in his limited action. His pre-season stuff was some of the worst I had seen from a 1st round QB. Not taking Justin Fields may come back to bite them.

    It's impressive what kind of offenses Kyle Shanahan puts put despite having a middle tier QB in Jimmy G.
