Re: The Not So Obvious From the Browns Game

Lo-Rog has finally been playing to his potential!! this was the last year i was giving him until i labeled him a bust. I guess major reconstructive knee surgery was a blessing because he is definitely bringing it. I like moss returning punts, but when is devin thomas going to get a shot at it? He was a beast return man with msu.

Actually we've moved up to #6 after yesterday's game One ahead of the Eagles and just behind the Panthers if you can believe that.

That was an awesome hit. But, what made it so much better was the next play, Laron blasted Braylon Edwards. I was waiting to see him get lit up all game after what he said.

I love that this kid plays physical and just loves to play football. Hopefully he can figure out how to run routes and not get caught pushing off...
I was going to flag this as well. That was a game-saving play, given the low score. Great to see the kid contributing even when he's not getting the ball at WR.

I think we still have a punter problem--hopefully, I'm wrong.

Rocky played well again, Smooty didn't get burned, and Cooley and Sellers were great as lead blockers. Also, SANTANA had a great block or two for Portis.

ARE actually had a very nice game--he had some nice receptions on crossing routes for big gains (big gains in THIS game...).

Re: The Not So Obvious From the Browns Game

Not sure if anyone has brought this up yet, but I have yet to see an angle that shows Portis clearly breaking the plane on his TD run. Is it just me or did he not get in?

In the replay it looked to me like the ball just barely inched over the front of the white line.

Re: The Not So Obvious From the Browns Game

What's with running a reverse with Fred Davis? I thought the idea was to give that play to someone with just a tad bit more speed.

I like that they're trying to get him more involved though. And Devin Thomas -- why can't they just send him on a fly pattern deep and launch the ball to him? At least you know he'd go pretty much unnoticed by the defense since he's seldom used.

Ya I would like to see some more sacks. I can't believe Horton whiffed on his blitz. That was pitiful. He had a clean lane and shot at Anderson and took an inside path for some reason like Anderson is some speed demon. Anderson easily sidestepped him.

Hopefully we will get more sacks, thou our DL was a concern going into this season since we never really addressed it in the offseason.

Re: The Not So Obvious From the Browns Game

The defense was very good. One concern, though: The second no-turnover game in a row by the D. I hope they start creating them again like in Weeks 2-5.

Yeah, that was strange. I think Davis can get open, and he did.

Thomas should be able to get some looks too. Yesterday we were just conservative. Only 23 throws i believe. So, no one was going to light it up.

I t may be just me and the commentators but I thought he was going to throw it. It's not a bad idea really, because nobody expects your TE to throw the ball. They just shut the play down too quickly for him. for all the criticism, the Browns defense isn't all that bad.

I agree about the pass rush, but I suspect we were building O in this years draft and looking to next year to pump up the lines on both sides of the ball. The current record may well be something of a bonus to the organisation who I think were looking to next year to get competitive. IF we can pick the right players up in next years draft, imagine how much better we will be? Right now we need Taylor to get his groove back.

As to the passing game, I think Campbell is being deliberately careful and trying to avoid mistakes. Am I alone in thinking I wouldn;t mind seeing him make a few more throws down field and risk the INT?

Re: The Not So Obvious From the Browns Game

With how close some our games have been, it would make no sense to risk throws down the field. An INT here or there and we're probably 4-3 or worse.

Being at the game I can see why there were no turnovers. The Brown QB was so off the mark most of the game that nobody on either team could have caught his passes. Also, the score was low so it was obvious they were tryimg not to force things.

Not quite, remember the Jackson fumble in the game against the Rams?
