  1. I'd surely hope so. Bernie Kosar hasn't played in like 30 years

    Why so many injuries?

    A violent game that has had its season extended by another game, with an 18th game a matter of when, not if. Not smart.

    Keenum to start

    I think it is safe to say this schedule is much tougher than a lot of us thought it would be. Anyone still think the Browns are going 4-0 vs Pittsburgh and Cincinnati?

    Hopefully they can eek out a win vs Denver, then get healthier in the week and a half they get off before Pittsburgh. Because this schedule is no walk-in-the-park. Detroit is about the only dud the Browns play from here out (New England?)

    Rate Baker Mayfield's "Performance" today

    Either he gets put on the shelf and gets surgery, and his season is over, or he continues to play, with middling results. Either way, this could very well torpedo the Browns attempt at a long playoff run.

    You might want to argue this point tia, but let me remind you, nickers played Little League football.

    Koufax blew out his arm and retired at 30, because of the workload he pulled off in the 60s.
  9. I can't disagree vehemently against any of this, but I think he's a good starting QB with an overall production ceiling that he's pretty much reached. I question if Baker is going to get much better than what he is today, but as you mentioned before, finding someone better is not something easily done.
  10. I agree, I don't easily see an upgrade available to Baker right now. I have no idea what "I know Baker isn't perfect, but he is the perfect QB for this team" means, and if means something about how "gritty" he is, I'm going to just nod blankly at that.
  11. I really struggled answering this when it was asked of me by tia, too. I do not think Baker is or will be a top-level QB, but I also think he can be a good, long-term QB for the Browns, and I agree, that isn't something to dismiss easily.
  12. So you are saying you would feel comfortable signing him to an extension that would tie up a lot of the cap space for almost the rest of the decade?
  13. That is a great fucking question. I think he can be in the top half of starting QBs, for the rest of the decade. Somewhere in the 10-16 range. I wonder, in this scheme, if the Browns will start to wonder if they can find someone who can produce at a similar pace, but won't cost what Baker will cost very soon. I honestly could see this scenario happening, where the Browns target someone they think fits this offense, and they let Baker go if he doesn't take a team-friendly contract.
  14. I think Baker can be a winning starting QB for a longer stretch than Goff. I also think, like Goff, that Baker needs a decent amount of help to be productive, and is somewhat limited. I think your comparison is fair, even if I think Baker is better than Goff long-term.
  15. I think the Browns can win a lot of games with Baker. I also think the Browns won't win many games because of Baker. I would LOVE to be a fly on the wall in the upcoming months in the Browns front office when Berry and Co. discuss Baker and his upcoming free agency.
