    Steelers Trading Bell

    Bell is not in a good position either. If I were Pgh, I’d let him sit. He’s worth $850K in cap space each week. If he signs as a FA with another team after the season, Pgh gets what, maybe a third round comp pick in 2020? I doubt any team will give up more than that (probably less) for a rental player, so there is the incentive to let him hang out in strip clubs in Miami. He won’t get injured there unless some ho slaps him. If he does not sign the franchise deal, they could franchise him again next year, though I could not imagine it. It does give them some leverage. When he does sign with another team, I imagine it would be like Pgh waking up from surgery and being told the surgeon got all the cancer out.

    5 Observations from "The Tie"

    Well, here are the things I took away from this game. 1) Very sloppy game. Perhaps due to the wet ball, receivers had trouble hanging on to it, QBs had trouble throwing it accurately. Doesn’t explain all the penalties on both sides, though. Looked like preseason. 2) PGH should be celebrating, because any time you turn the ball over that many times and don’t lose you are very very lucky. They kept trying to give the game to the Browns and the Browns kept trying to give it right back. In the end neither side wanted it so they tied. 3) Someone on this board describes Conner as mediocre. Well, in that case a mediocre running back carried 31 times for 135 (4.35 avg) and 57 more yards on receptions, on what I think is a much improved Browns defense. PGH oline worked well and opened up holes, and I think I now get why they are not too bent out of shape over Bell holding out. 4) As I understand it, every week Bell holds out frees up almost $900,000 PGH cap space. PGH may have concluded that his main value is in the cap space he creates by NOT showing up, and the comp pick they will get when he signs elsewhere after the season. Would he be as good elsewhere without that oline? 5) Browns are a maturing team, I see 4 or 5 wins this year. Hue, Ithink, is Dead Coach Walking. Bet you two of the Krispy Kreme’s that fell behind Romeo Crennel’s desk that Haley will replace him partway through the year.

    Unreasonably tough schedule?

    Yep. Comparing schedules, Pgh has the close to the same schedule except they get the Cheatriots and Jags while Cle gets the Jets and Texans. And of course Cle gets Pgh twice, while Pgh plays Cle twice. The Browns have to improve on a one win season, it’s damn near impossible to suck that bad two years in a row, with all those draft picks.....

    I did not understand that pick, and had to look up who Edmunds was. It’s not like he would not have been there later for them. When the good ILBs were all off the board I actually expected Pgh to trade out of the 1st.round. I think in later rounds they have an extra year of control or something. Pgh not good at evaluating and drafting DBs. Can’t say they have come up with an outstanding one in years.

    All bullsht aside now, does football belong in clev?

    So now it’s Hilary’s fault that the Browns stink? I thought the Deep State was busy confiscating pickup trucks and cutting off the painkiller supply to Columbus!

    ***Official Browns @ Steelers Game Day Thread***

    Who TF is this Ridley? Signed when Connor went down? Looks like OJ vs Browns defense.

    Did not realize that Droppius Wayward-Boy was still even playing.
  8. Anyone notice that no matter what the subject, any thread on this site degenerates into this in a few posts? People will end up at each other’s throats over a discussion about cleats or something. Is it because the suckitude has gone on so long that it’s less painful to attack each other than to talk about football?

    Steelers playing backups this weekend....

    Usually a coordinator job is a step to a HC job elsewhere. Unfortunately the Browns HC job is a step to a coordinator job elsewhere.

    Steelers playing backups this weekend....

    Connor out for a year with torn up knee. They signed some RB off the street. Backups still favored by 4. NE/NYJ game is at the same time. Bet if somehow the Jets are winning and Browns make it competitive, you will see starters put back in. Ugh, humiliating to see this treated like a preseason game, but it is what is is......

    Josh Rosen?

    Hi Andrew
  12. Buck The Frowns

    Harrison released by steelers.

    Steelers are already thin at lb, but released him to make roster room for an o lineman. They see him every day in practice, so they are the ones best in position to know what he has left, and they let him go-what does that say? If they have another roster spot open, I bet they resign him later as insurance, but as far as starting, he is done. Father Time is undefeated. Browns actually have a decent defense, esp against the run, so signing Harrison makes about as much sense as inviting Manziel to training camp. It would be interesting that if he were signed by the Browns, he would have spent at least some time on the roster of every team in the division. BTW, he never failed a drug test, that I know of.

    Josh Rosen?

    This whisper campaign against Rosen seems right out of the alt-right playbook. I’ll leave it to you as to why.

    Josh Rosen?

    Nothing is wrong with Rosen. He looks to be the one closest to being an NFL quarterback right out of the box, though others may have a higher ultimate upside. The points about the huge shoe deal that UCLA signed were well thought out and well stated, especially for a 21 year old. He seems pretty smart. I hear vague rumors that people don’t like him but that’s all. No arrests, no bad tweets, no failed drug tests, no domestic violence, no date rape incidents. Wore a rude headband critical of Trump, which will probably piss off some owners. Could be a ploy to drop far enough that a decent team takes him. Maybe there is a little ethnic bias against Rosen, I don’t know. Way way worse horse’s asses have been drafted than Rosen, at least from what I see of him. If he did an Elway maneuver, sadly, I would not blame him. This is the LaBrea Tar Pits for quarterbacks.

    This Week in the AFC North

    Balt still has playoff hopes alive, but a win will only mess up the Browns draft order. They have to win some time but probably not today, against a better team that has motivation to win. 31-20 Ravens Marvin Lewis is leaving, so I bet that some wind has been let out of Cincinnatti’s sails. Vikes 25 Bengals 17. Pit has been NE’s beach for a long time, but this is difficult to call. Both defenses are porous. Both offenses are powerful. If there was any game this year in which 80 points total could be scored, this is that game. I say NE 41 Pit 35 in a game close until the 4th quarter.
