    Chubb / Hunt vs Byner / Mack

    OUCH ! Oh yeah I think every DC has to plan on just that the 1-2 punch plus Baker does play action and hits Landry, his TEs and then hopefully a healthy OBJ. A bulldozer like Chubb then a fresh Hunt....... Oh yeah !

    How did the Defense get so bad?

    Yeah you wonder why that decision was made. I was thinking maybe he had some underlying injury that the FO would know about. Maybe budgets which run a lot of things in today's world. D captain to off the team ?
  3. JOE BUCK JOINS FATHER IN HOF 13 hours ago Little did Joe Buck know, Thursday night would become a night he would never forget. President of the Pro Football Hall of Fame David Baker announced at halftime of Thursday Night Football that legendary sportscaster Joe Buck would join his father, fellow legendary sportscaster Jack Buck, in the Hall. Buck was left speechless after the announcement. "I don't even know what to say. I feel like – what? This is unbelievable." Hall of Famer Eric Dickerson congratulated Buck after the annoucement. Buck is a Sports Emmy Award-winner who has spent decades as a play-by-play announcer for FOX, lending his talents to both the NFL and MLB. In 1994, at age 25, he became the youngest man to broadcast the Sunday slate of NFL games. Jack Buck spent nearly 50 years in the broadcast booth for the St. Louis Cardinals, and he covered 17 World Series and eight Super Bowls. He is a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, the Baseball Hall of Fame, and the Radio Hall of Fame.

    Chubb / Hunt vs Byner / Mack

    Do remember it was CIN and not BAL but still it SO nice seeing the BROWNS running for 6.2 yards per rush. And a running game helps the passing game, clock management the woeful defense and to win games. Football 101.

    How did the Defense get so bad?

    I remember when it was 5/5 keeping Cinci in the game. Even a few stops and they could have put the Hunt/Chubb running game back on the field to run the clock out and maybe scored even more. Every sports announcer I've seen so far that the BROWNS have the best 1-2 punch for a running game in the NFL. The both might keep either from winning the running back in yardage. -But- winning games, controlling the clock, keeping the defense off the field are all more important ! GO BROWNS... just win games, baby !
  9. I think part of that is because as the son of a HOF he's always been compared to his fine career. Joe has done a LOT of big time sports broadcasting in football and baseball for over 25 years now.

    Even though JB had good college training at two great football factories Ohio State and LSU he still just finished his second game in the NFL and had a shot at winning game 1 I think he will be a decent NFL quarterback.....but they were saying the same thing after Baker Mayfield's rookie year. Big season for each of them this year.
  11. I like Joe Buck as an announcer and of course always liked his dad Jack Buck as a classic old time announcer. Congratulations to them both.

    The Pac-12 announced Aug. 11 that it would consider returning to sports after the calendar flipped to 2021. However, a series of developments last week and then this Wednesday opened the door for the league to join the Big Ten in returning to the field earlier than expected. Leaders in California and Oregon moved to ease state health restrictions on Wednesday that would have otherwise prevented six of the league's 12 teams from practicing. Citing a source, ESPN's Heather Dinich reported that the Pac-12 could return to play as early as late October if county officials in the location of each program ease restrictions to allow teams to practice. CBS Sports' Dennis Dodd is hearing from Pac-12 sources that early November is likely a more achievable start date for the league. However, efforts will be made for late October start considering the firm date of the final College Football Playoff Rankings of the season on Dec. 20. That late-October would potentially match the Pac-12 up with the Big Ten, which announced on Wednesday that it will begin its football season the weekend of Oct. 24.

    * WEEK 2 * in the AFCN CLE -6.5 OVER CIN and BAL -6.5 at HOU, PIT a -6.5 favorite vs DEN the NFL injury report to follow. Is this last second choke by the Cincinnati Bengals kicker on their new super stud rookie quarterback's debut one of the top 5 worst EVER ? Well no actually there were more according to Bengal fans who know all about such things -but- it does set up the Thursday night game in Cleveland up as a classic matchup.......well maybe a better matchup with the loser having TWO conference losses to start the 2020 season. According to our friends at vegasinsider.com the browns opened up an 8.5 point favorite and now is a 6 point favorite and 45 point O/U right now. Oh the biggest Bengal chokes of all time check it out for yourself. https://bleacherreport.com/articles/255629-the-five-most-gut-punching-cincinnati-bengals-losses-of-all-time And the AFCN games BAL -6.5 at HOU and PIT a -6.5 favorite at home vs DEN.

    Would You Undo the Giants Trade?

    Right now I don't know. This looked like the missing link to SB54 at the time it was made. Was OBJ really injured last year? Will he bounce back to form this year? He's on the clock every game now. NOTE: It won't help the defense right now.
