  1. He certainly got a lot of game time. So, I picture him as the replacement for Duke. Which is what I think Dorsey figured he was. He fumbled on the goal line. A fumble is bad. A couple of guys whacked him at the one, and one of 'em had helmet smash into the football. He wasn't getting in the end anyway. But still...a fumble is bad. Still AGAIN, he really shouldn't be in the game in that situation. It should be the power back in there. Duke wouldn't be in the game in that situation. (although Duke was a bit heavier and stronger, so better suited if forced to be in the game). Hilliard caught the ball well, like Duke. And he ran the ball well enough, like Duke. But again, he and Duke aren't intended to be the every down back. Where I see the biggest deficiency is in his blocking. He got called for a hold when the defender basically bowled him over like he wasn't there so he tackled the defender. And he really should've been called much earlier in the game for a blatant hold , because he was beat. Duke was a good blocker. It doesn't seem that HIlliard can hold off a blitzer...at least that's what I think I see (saw).

    which qbs

    Somebody just signed Josh McCown out of retirement. Teams like to have that veteran team leader in the QB room. I agree with gumby, after Gilbert''s performance, he would get signed after being cut. He's got two more games to get through though.

    Josh Gordon reinstated again

    He's answered that question many times already. It's been Groundhog Day with him. He doesn't try very hard.......at anything......he's dumb as a stump.......I don't care how articulate he can be.
  4. This week the Browns will practice a couple of times with / against the Colts. I'm sure the coaches see the great value of this. Seeing our guys against another team...and how they do or don't match up to other NFL talent. But I'm just hoping we can get through it without losing anybody.

    The Scary Week of Practice

    That's my favorite brand of auto racing. I also enjoy IMSA (and the Corvette team). If your QB has a decently strong arm, then the weather doesn't keep you from kicking ass with the pass. The Patriots have set passing records in snow storms. The QB & the receiver know where they're going. The DB has to guess right. That said, you HAVE TO be able to run, half decent anyway, in ANY weather.

    Josh Gordon reinstated again

    Isn't that somethin' though. With us, it's a 10 game suspension. With the Pat's, he can play in game 1. < shakes head >

    What 2 or 3 Players Would It Be Hardest To Cut

    I'm sure the player's union would approve of that. I think that if they give ya 53....then they should all be able to dress and play.

    What 2 or 3 Players Would It Be Hardest To Cut

    Too early to tell. Only see 1 game. Sheehy-Guiseppe, is the feel good story....but can he run routes crisply, can he block at all for the running game? Can he consistently catch the ball in the return game? (he juggled the td return) Corbett is NOT getting cut. imo ....gonna have to see a couple more games.

    We can't sleep on ANYbody!

    The Scary Week of Practice

    I knew the coaches would like it.
  12. I never understood the thinking of turning Duke into a WR. Fortunately, Dorsey went out and got 'real' WR's.
  13. Yeah. I WOULD like to see more of that guy. He had 2 carries for 16 yards. (#43)
  14. ...what He said. We signed the guys that we have for a reason. We have to see them enough to be sure about them....one way or the other.

    The Scary Week of Practice

    I hear ya! I understand that the coaches tell their players not to overdo it., no touching the QB etc.....but guys are looking to make the team......in their minds, this is a great opportunity to show that they're better than the guy across from him. And some of 'em are just excitable boys.
  16. Well, part of that could be because he was flat on his back in the end zone and everyone jumped on him....making it hard for him to breath under there. He probably got gassed twice.
  17. Yup. It's been kind of a weak spot for us. We're desperate for someone to step forward. He's taken a step forward....

    Browns Sign Joe Kerridge

    ...like I said earlier, the signing of this Kerrige guy didn't say much for the guy we had (Charles). Hopefully he can still block like that college highlight reel. He friggin' blocks guys through the ground.
  19. Well, yes. But unless it's someone exceptional, you usually assign it to a wr, db, rb, etc. Is Guiseppi exceptional? So far, he's returned a punt for a td at the end of the 4th quarter, against the bottom of the Redskins roster. We'll have to try him returning earlier in games and see how he fare's.
  20. As gumby says, the OL wasn't opening running lanes. We've gotta make sure that we have Cubb 'covered' for the 1st eight games. Concussions are things that can get a guy pulled from the game...and kept out for multiple games....and RB's are certainly targets for a concussion. We have to have another 'thumper' RB that can get that yard or two when you absolutely need it. Hilliard is not the 3rd and short RB. He's the 3rd and long guy.

    Browns Sign Joe Kerridge

    I don't see much value in him.....except he use to block like a sum-bitch! ...signing him doesn't say much for the guys they have.
  22. But perhaps in 'their' mind they might see having another thumper RB that can convert 3rd & 1 in case Chubb is dinged as more of a necessity. I think the stars have to line up for Guiseppi to make the roster. But if he does, he has to get a haircut.
  23. .......I'd guess probably when he was twelve or thirteen years old.
