    This Week in the AFC North

    Packers just ran back a pick six, now up 36-17 well into the 3rd quarter over the Rams. They are going to be another rough test for the Browns, on Christmas Day.

    Seriously, how the fuck did we lose to the Steelers?

    There could be a few options available in the mid 1st round, where the Steelers look like they will be drafting. No stud QB prospects this season.

    I seriously never want Big Ben to retire, and I want him to play his entire career in Pittsburgh. Damn near has two pick sixes today.

    Speaking of, I have a feeling Woody had such a big orgasm yesterday around 3:30 that he may have gone to the other side.

    It appears the Bengals swoon has been turned around. And the Steelers will drop back to .500 with six games left, unless they have an Alcoa Fantastic Finish.

    Official Browns at Ravens Game Thread: Nov 28

    Just reporting what many people, including Kevin Stefanski, is saying about how well Baker looked this week in practice.
  8. It's been a weird week or so of football around here... last Saturday Ohio State played Michigan State, followed by the Browns playing the Detroit Lions, followed by Ohio State playing that other team up north coached by Jim Harbaugh yesterday, with the Browns playing the Ravens tonight coached by John Harbaugh.

    Browns vs Raiders game

    The Browns vs. Raiders game that was “TBD” forever is set for Saturday December 18th at 4:30.
  10. All of this is true, but Flacco was due a contract extension right after he helped win a Super Bowl. I don't see how Baker has anything resembling that type of leverage. If I was the Browns, I'd aim to sign him to a Tannehill-type extension.
  11. At the end of the day, I'm fine with a healthy Baker being the QB for another four or five years if he signs a relatively affordable contract extension. There's no way I want to see the Browns sign him to a $40 mill a year contract - he's not that guy. But a Tannehill-type extension? Sure. I totally agree with SdBacker's critique of Baker's limitations, but if he signs a moderate contract extension, you won't have to make cuts all over the place to afford it. In a perfect world I'd like an upgrade over Baker, but that seems pretty unlikely. Get him healthy, get him signed to a mid-level starting QB extension, and fix the problems around him. I just don't see it happening for the Browns this season. Too many injuries and too many issues with the team right now. The foundation, though, is here for success.

    So you are hoping that I become "woke"? Oh, the irony, my dearest pal. May your Thanksgiving be filled with family, happiness, and delicious food.

    Your assertion that you didn't want to end up bitter like your father isn't going well, is it? Which is peculiar, from reading your posts for years it is obvious you have a great life. Once again, congratulations on all your success, my friend.

    You know how in the movie 'Speed' the bus has to go at least 50 mph or it explodes? Do you have a bomb strapped to you, and if you don't write the word "woke" at least five times a day, it goes off? Reply with: "The black bird flies east at midnight" and I'll alert the authorities, buddy.

    When asked today what the most overrated Thanksgiving dish is, Baker replied with: "Definitely green bean casserole." I was like:

    What's your go-to place for dinner downtown? Went to Mabel's last Saturday night. Michael Symon's bbq place doesn't disappoint.

    when a win feels like a loss

    The Browns do not need to go 6-0 down the stretch to win the AFC North, but with every thing going on lately with this team, it sure feels like a loss Sunday night will pretty much end the Browns playoff chances. Winning the AFC North seems way more of a possible path than getting a Wild Card spot, considering how many WC contenders have beaten the Browns already.

    Baker Mayfield

    IMO, unless the Browns win both games vs Baltimore, which would be a radical reversal of fortune from what the Browns have done vs other playoff (or is it payoff?) caliber teams this season, their shot at winning the AFC North is probably slim to none. I would hope the Browns would shut Baker down and get his shoulder operated on sooner than later,

    Browns vs Raiders game

    My good friend from Western PA is a Cowboys fan. I mean, I don't like the Cowboys, but he lives in Western PA and is NOT a Steelers fan, so that works for me. 😋

    when a win feels like a loss

    That is true. We'll see how this last place AFC North team looks three weeks from today, after the next two games vs Baltimore.

    when a win feels like a loss

    I'm somewhat confused by this. Continue a winning formula? Browns are 3-3 over the last six games. Baker is capable of "putting it together, as we saw in Cincinnati."? That's the only game in those last six games where the Browns have scored more than 17 points. Baker's body recovering? Physically, he keeps getting beaten up more every week. Zombo, I like your optimism, but you're whistling past the Browns 2021 graveyard.
  22. I think the Browns need to win both to win the division. Going to be an interesting three weeks. While the Browns have the Ravens back-to-back with a bye in-between, the Ravens play the Steelers between their two Browns games.
  23. I never saw this coming at the beginning of the season, but the Patriots are starting to look pretty damn tough. Kansas City is on a winning streak, but not exactly dominant. If anything, they've been efficient lately. The rest of the AFC contenders have been a rollercoaster.

    Especially considering you have an absolute mauler in Wyatt Teller to run behind too...
