    The Scary Week of Practice

    I hear you. If the Browns establish a rushing attack, the passing game will be lethal. If they can find a way to keep the rush going (Chubb stays healthy) until week 10, Hunt comes in, and look out. Most all good teams can get down and dirty with the run, even if they have potent passing. Pats just kept rushing in the Super Bowl run 2018. Elway won nothing until he had a running game (TD). Browns need to be tough. Got to.

    The CBA almost forces them to practice soft.

    Well, when I heard "new offense" I assumed it was a more open passing attack....to me, they look like they are even MORE physical than last year. They are hammering teams with big backs, they are letting Jackson run, even in the preseason. I saw no signs of a more sophisticated passing game. Maybe they are hiding it for now. Jackson does not have it in him to be a pocket passer, it's not gonna happen. Teams are going to stack the box and dare them to beat 'em deep. I'm not sure he can. But I still think they can win north of 9 games.

    Yes, I messed that up. Had TN on the brain.

    They don't "scare me" like a Zeke, Barkley, Bell or McCaffrey. But they are about pounding, not flash, although Henry has shown he can take it to the house. Dude is BIG and fast. Already this preseason they have shown they will hammer you with Ingram. And yes, they did lose a lot on D, but they have a way of replenishing just when you think they are dry. Suggs was on his last legs, Mosely is good, but not great. Still have players in the secondary. Have beef up front.

    I agree on TN; I think Vrable will prove a good coach and they have talent. They had some impressive wins last year and they should be better. My main knock on them is at QB. Marcus Ardel Taulauniu Mariota doesn't impress me. Big deal, he can run. Lamar can run circles around him. The thing with the Ravens is they are so physical. Now with Ingram in the fold, they are gonna hammer teams more than ever. I thought Henry was underrated before last season, and he proved he was. It's very hard to win a ring without a decent passing attack, but you can win a ton of games (and a div.) with a D and a running game, just not a championship in most cases. I think the team that wins the north is gonna earn it. It could be a brutal battle - 3 legit contenders IMO. This is the most anticipated season we've had in the AFCN/central we've had in years...like too many to even count. When was the last time the season opened with the Browns being a legit factor? 88?

    They are not sexy, but with that D, Jackson running all over, should everyone sleep on them? I'm not.

    What did we think of Hilliard in game 1

    I have often wondered why Orchard wasn't kept by Cleveland OR why he wasn't immediately scooped up by another team. He seemed to get to the QB.

    Why does Jay Crawford bother me?

    I'm sure he'll do fine.

    Not only weed, but definitely weed was included in his hot mess. https://www.boston.com/sports/new-england-patriots/2018/09/18/josh-gordon-drugs-suspension-timeline It's surprising with how badly the Gordon experiment went that the Browns are still adding players with similar backgrounds.

    No, the big difference is once clipped, you get tested randomly, making it much harder for chronic users to slip by. Rico is now on that program, where as before he just had to make sure he tested clean once a year, when he knew the test was coming. Just look at Gordon.

    That's a bigger discussion, but moot in this instance. Right now weed is illegal in the NFL, and until that is changed, it does matter if you keep adding players who can't stop toking as it gets them suspended. Talent means NOTHING if you aren't playing. Do I really need to mention Josh Gordon here?

    https://www.cbssports.com/fantasy/football/news/browns-rico-gathers-signs-with-cleveland/ Are they trying to add more and more tokers? Is this part of the overall plan?
