  1. Can we please stop turning on every new coach...

    Penalties are on him? Did I miss him goosing those DL?
  2. Haden a Steeler

    And FU-CK You, too... Telling for a friend.
  3. Joe tore his tricep....

    I'll take some of that bet...
  4. Calfox's dismal midseason mock draft special

    Too early... you might actually be right... for once... Seriously... Allen, meh, I need more time, more looks... and dunno Marshall or O'Neil... but Ridley? Looks beast-ish to me.
  5. How Many Times

    Possessions started with four runs by Crow and six others, but "others" included two runs by Duke and one QB kneel down. Series? Eight runs by Crow; Eighteen "other". And of the seven of Crow's runs seven were between the Tackles. So the series tally is 7 of 26 or 7/26 or 0.26 or 26% of the time... tad shy of "every single freeking (sic) time." So there's that... http://www.nfl.com/gamecenter/2017102202/2017/REG7/Titans@Browns?icampaign=scoreStrip-globalNav-2017102202#menu=gameinfo|contentId%3A0ap3000000866017&tab=analyze&analyze=playbyplay Have you considered OCuvite and/or Ginkgo Biloba?
  6. So if Jackson is gone...

    Yeah, it is... but IMHO it's lame to pile on the penalty decline. Kind of an aside, but I was looking into Hue's "Coaching Tree" last week. He doesn't exactly spring from heavyweight limbs nor give rise to substantial twigs... http://nflcoachingtrees.com/coaching-trees/hue-jackson
  7. Kenny Britt signing with the Browns

    Was an interesting journey thru six and a half old pages... Some deserve to crow about Britt... with the proper deduction for any Pryor touting...
  8. Hue most likely gone now....

    Still agree with those that think Hue stays thru the season and returns in 2018 if certain conditions are met... e.g., OC installed... but he is sure not making it easy to maintain that view. For me it still boils down to whether or not he loses the locker room... losing Joe is not going to make that any easier. I choose plan B... already have a time and place set with Kizer... But nay Guiness... Beamish, will be my stout, if I can find it... otherwise Tennyson or one I've enjoyed before called "10 p" the brewer of which I forget (there was also a 15 or 20 p version which I did not think was as good). Supposedly the designations were the price of a pint once-upon-a-time. All the way to UK for a Sporting News article? Interesting... The writer packed a lot into that article... these bits stood out... "Kizer still ended up being more efficient than Kessler... " - Hue's early resolve to play Kizer needs to return come what may. It starts with a public affirmation and continues with time spent next to his rookie QB after every series. "Jackson isn't complementing the other side of the ball with his game plans..." - Empty claims devoid of any explanation bother me. Sunday we ran 67 plays, 41 passes and 26 rushes. Not 50/50, but also not 75/25... about 60/40 if you do the math. Not unreasonable when a drive is derailed by penalty and/or 1st-down incompletion. "Jackson has been adamant about trying to get slumping power running back Isaiah Crowell on track when receiving back Duke Johnson Jr. has been the Browns' best source of offense." - We all know Crow's limitations, his flaws/weaknesses, but this side of Dayes (who we are not seeing for some reason likely obscured by practice showings), Crow is our best power back. We saw evidence of this yesterday when he got to the 2nd level via run or especially pass. I mean hwo wasn't cheering on that one run-after-catch on the near sideline. And Duke's truth is he is not an everydown RB. We saw what happens when he takes a shot... Crow ended up in more passing situations... making good on throws to him that were above his shoe bottoms. "You would think that would make Jackson feature his tight ends more in the passing game, but despite their athleticism, David Njoku and Seth DeValve have been treated more like flashes than players with substance." - Who Hue "features" in a play design can be very different from who the QB du play selects as his target... something the D can dictate. Does the author not allow that the D game plan against the same athlete's he sees? My bottom line... It's an article with a point of view I cannot dismiss, but one which it does not support very well. It's leaving that to its like-minded readers.

  10. Kizer to start

    Kizer doesn't need his QB Coach... he needs to sit with his OC.
  11. Kizer partied Friday Night

    Saw the same in the second half of his Boise game... mechanics are not good at all. Meanwhile back at the thread... Where's the video? Where's the sh!t-faced, champagne-induced swan-diving? Out until closing with friends, old and/or new, is not a big deal so long as the rook is not getting trashed? Do we yet know if this was his "day off"? Do we know whether he spent the last four nites "at the office" equally late? Let's get a few more facts... and until we do, let's just enjoy Kizer shutting down muck-raker Mary...
  12. Joe tore his tricep....

    Probably from me... at least I now I've said he was our best option in the past. Now I think that ship has sailed. No longer seeing the movement I saw in Bito the rookie. Definitely got a lil misty-eyed myself, plus nauseous... The hole this leaves is not only on the field. Locker room leadership is just not the same when you don't cross the sideline suited up...

  15. Calfox's dismal midseason mock draft special

    Not nearly as much as the squeaker last November...
  16. Jackson is getting harder to ignore... something I prefer to do with heavily run-oriented, Collegiate QBs. Something the NFL trend is making harder to do. Thought he was too small (or slight) in previous seasons, but he's now 6'3 213, so the kid is built to run and runs pretty smart. That said he has coughed up 19 fumbles losing 11 of them. Not all may be on the run, however. Some are likely pocket strips. Passing... looks much more comfortable in the pocket this season and, as you said, is making some gorgeous throws. When did I say you said? It's a characterization I've heard by a talking head or four. As for excluding plays... Some "big plays" are more attributable to an individual effort than others. Some are just the right call vs. the right D and well executed by the "team". Barkley's opening TD simply falls into the latter category... IMO. So IMO it's fair to discount it... not completely, but heavily... since all he really did in that instance was "run fast in a straight line and not fall down." Have to add that the "not fall down" part looked to be strangely iffy in at least two strides of that "fast run". Carrying a heavy load... but knees only buckled once so far. UCLA's run-D is virtually non-existent.

  17. ***Official Browns Vs. Titans Game Day Thread***

    No... you haven't been shy... ever? Point remains now Gregg has tape with another in the role for which he's seen Peppers as the best option. Maybe that frees him to use Peppers differently... even as God (in the form of Jim Harbaugh) intended. On Garrett... I saw two things Sunday... continued lack of a secondary move off his speed rush, and no use of his patented, ultra low dip within that speed rush. While the former is still a factor regardless of health, I suspect the latter is a sign that his health is not full. Lewan did a nice job anchoring against MG's stack rush and escorting MG's speed rushes deep and past MM. We know high-ankles linger beyond a players' return to functionality. I suspect... barring a set back in London, where I expect more success vs. Reiff... to see MG have a greater impact after our healing Bye. Excel? Going to need that 2nd move emerge... Do you realize how difficult it is to give you an upvote? I now do...
  18. Haden a Steeler

    Awesome... thanks for sharing. Saw Joe got his first pick yesterday... on a tipped ball he gathered in five or so behind the WR in his zone, AJ Green. There was a day when he manned up and shut down AJ... back when he was a #1 CB, not the #2 you are paying him to be??? $9mm per year thru 2019... kinda steep for a #2... basically about 30% over the money we offered him. And he's amassed 12 tackles and 2 assists. Then there's his replacement, McCourty... 3 INTs so far including a pick 6 plus 19 Tackles, a couple of which were big hits, and 5 Assists. And here's the kicker... he's signed thru 2018 for an average of $3mm/yr. Who would you say has been the better value to this point? Say hi to Joe for me...
  19. Kizer to start

    Well... when it's all you've got... The mission hasn't changed... just the tasks, the areas to address. The mission is still to determine if Kizer can be the guy... and the immediate tasks are field vision and touch, which more and more I feel have a common issue at their root... calm, or lack thereof, a/k/a tension. Best analogy I can think of is taking a golf swing adjustment from the range to the course. When the target is real vs. envisioned, when the swing counts towards a score vs. simply consumes one more striped range-ball... things change. And in my case when the game went from a casual or practice round to a tournament... things change. The change is in level of importance... in tension level. And tenson kills a golf swing. Overgrip a club and that hand tension travels up both sides of the forearms until suddenly the swing is tight and variation in the shot shoots off the charts. I see the same in Kizer's throwing... at least I think I do. He needs a Sports Psychiatrist and/or yoga instructor... a clear head and breathing control can work wonders.

  21. This Week in the AFC Central

    BLT @ MN (-5.5) Prediction: MN 20 BLT 13 FINAL: MN 24 BLT 16 - W/W... nice start and not a bad score prediction... CIN @ PTG (-5.5) Prediction: PTG 37 CIN 17 FINAL: PTG 29 CIN 14 - WW/WW... now we're cooking blow out predicted... wish I'd double checked my Yahoo pick after writing this... TN @ CLE (+5.5) Prediction: TN 23 CLE 17 FINAL: TN 12 CLE 9 - W/L... oh well... and glad I did not check Yahoo after this one... so it all worked out. Did I mention that with 4+ minutes left I called the OT in the Chat_Tavern? So I got that goin' for me... ... PROGRESS... not to be confused with SUCCESS...
  22. Kizer partied Friday Night

    lol... well... that'll teach you for getting your knee fixed...
  23. Kessler back in

    We get the Kess QBR thing, but he wasn't doing it Hue's way. He came closer today with the intermediate shot to Njoku, but his lone deep shot was dismal. And his escapability remains nil.
  24. Hue most likely gone now....

    lmao... not sure why, but I am...
  25. Kizer partied Friday Night

    Honestly, cal, it wasn't... not even close to his worst showing... not close to his Cinci outing.
