  7. Well now that I'm off of all of that healthy hospital food back to good ol' GAMEDAY food. MLB is still in full swing and what's better than some hot dogs with the game as the TRIBE is trying to recapture first place! ........high school football starts in just five weeks!

  9. As of today, more than 72,000 Americans who were involved in World War II remain unaccounted for, according to the Defense Department. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ There were some real hell holes in the Pacific my late father-in-law was in several of them. I worked with many of those guys in the steel mills, a tough bunch including Lou a member of that Greatest Generation. God bless them all.

    All Time Browns Depth Chart

    You know what this is. Before there was a Joshua Cribbs, there was an Eric Metcalf. Touching Eric Metcalf on a punt return kills you immediately. I was going to look at the impact of Paul Brown and football. Then Josh Cribbs took me back to one of the best afternoons of my young football life. October 24th, 1993 Eric Metcalf shouldn't have played. He injured his right knee in the previous weeks win over the Bengals. He missed practice on Monday, Tuesday, Wednsday and Thursday. On Friday he did nothing but a light walk through. In today's NFL world he would have been declared doubtful (although our coach was Belichick, so maybe not). On Friday he told Cleveland Browns owner (I refuse to add his name to such an amazing tale) "I'm playing in the Pittsburgh game. I'm just not going to miss that." Thank God he didn't......... https://www.dawgsbynature.com/2009/12/22/1212207/a-look-back-the-greatest-punt

    All Time Browns Depth Chart

    Ahhhhh great Cleveland Browns memories and then there are the Dirty Two Dozen +1. Some did try even put up some good or sorta' good numbers but most just were big buck busts.
  13. Had a really good GAMEDAY meal before yesterday's INDIANS game, sirloin steakburgers about 1/3 pounders on the grill with American cheese lettuce and whatever, baked beans, potato salad and my weak moment treat plain ol' potato chips to snack on during the game......I could eat a bag full of them but have to quit. Sometimes simple can be nice. The grillin' life. ......oh we haven't had one our favorites Wedgewood Pizza since maybe February, on the list plus a pile of unused gift cards to The Olive Garden and others maybe a Sunday GAMEDAY meal.

    Topical trivia question

    Some of those missle silos that I have seen on shows on PBS could be a bunker capable of surviving a nuclear blast. Many are being converted into residences and long term bugout shelters.

    Topical trivia question

    Too wacky not to be TRUE.
  16. Diner patron: You know, they could be a lot worse. Construction worker: You know, these guys aren't so fucking bad. Groundskeeper #1: [In Japansese] They're still shitty. Groundskeeper #2: Hai

    1986 Browns vs. 2019 Browns

    This has my juices flowing comparing 2019 and 1986 plus remembering the Sipe and back to the great Jim Brown era. GO BROWNS, forever!
  19. Sounds good, we take ALL of our VISA reward points as restaurant gift cards for gifts or our treats have about $300 in my drawer now. Ummmmm, need to get busy on those.

    The official Terry Pluto thread

    After thinking about it for awhile one big KEY component the offense might greatly help the defense by establishing more ball control and time of possession getting leads and greatly cutdown on defense plays and tackles......isn't that what winning teams do? Eh? (new tablet new spell checker which I have to keep checking....sheesh)

    The official Terry Pluto thread

    Wasn’t Jamie Collins part of the problem? A: Joe Schobert (24) led the NFL in missed tackles. Other missed tackle totals: Collins (20), Briean Boddy-Calhoun (12), Damarious Randall (12), Jabrill Peppers (11), Denzel Ward (10), T.J. Carrie (10), Derrick Kindred (10) and Trevon Coley (10). Collins, Calhoun, Peppers, Boddy-Calhoun and Kindred are no longer with the team. Q: The defense is a worry? A: Dorsey did a good job adding Olivier Vernon and Sheldon Richardson to start on the defensive line. Myles Garrett and Larry Ogunjobi are excellent. Morgan Burnett can help against the run at strong safety. I’m hoping one of the rookie linebackers (Sione Takitaki or Mack Wilson) emerges as a run-stopper. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Obivously the primary concern and focus from training camp day 1 on to game 1 and beyond.

    The official Terry Pluto thread

    If Mayfield started all 16 games in 2018 they coulda' gone 9-7 last year.......10+ is the target this year (with of course a touch of luck).
