Counting down until Home Opener

September 11, 2022 vs Pittsburgh Steelers

Game Dey!!!

Mayfield - Browns made the right choice?


Recommended Posts

 

I thought he was the right pick for the Browns, at least as far as QB's go.  Will be interesting to see how far and how quickly he pushes Taylor (adding Landry and having Gordon back along with Chubb at RB makes them interesting for once).  Same with Jackson in Baltimore, who could make some teams look pretty bad for passing on him if he pans out early on, and Flacco struggles enough.  All it takes is an 0-2 or 0-3 start for either team, and we're seeing them twice a year I guess.

He looked good.  Numerous instances where he used his pocket awareness to evade the rush and find another little space to set up and get the throw off.  I know he'll face some less vanilla rush packages down the road, but so far I'm guessing the Browns are thrilled.

This.

He was very comfortable sitting in the pocket and going through his progressions.  When he did scramble he always kept his head up and his eyes down the field.

I watched all of his snaps live since the Bengals game wasn't on here, and as a Bengals fan...I did NOT like what I saw.

Mayfield's a player.  The Browns are going to be a problem for us.  Honestly, after watching Hard Knocks, Hue Jackson seems like the weak link in that chain (also o-line).

They'll probably beat us once, and I can see them beating the Ravens as well.  Their defense is ***damn scary.  Myles Garrett is probably going to lead the NFL in sacks if he stays healthy.  

If they go 0-6 or something, I can see them showing Hue the door and promoting one of their coordinators.

Mayfield changed the dynamic of that game when he came in.  You could see and feel it from your own living room.
If Hue makes the decision to go back to Taylor after last night, he should be fired immediately.

I was rooting for the Browns last night (yes, I feel dirty for it) and think with Mayfield, they are a team that will shock some people.
I mentioned it in the other thread, but the Browns are close to being a 3-0 team right now.

Oh don’t get it twisted. The “Cheering for the Browns” ended immediately after the game ended last night and will not be repeated.

Maybe it’s my disklike for the Jets, or maybe seeing Mayfield get his shot, but it was fun to watch when I really had no intentions of watching.

Just to be clear, FUCK THE BROWNS !!!

I'm disappointed the browns didn't botch it again by drafting Darnold or Rosen.  

I thought all along that Mayfield was the clear cut #1 and couldn't for the life of me figure out why the national talking heads were slobbering over Darnold and company.  Darnold was an interception machine at USC...what makes people think that'll get better in the NFL?

I was rooting for the Browns.  As Americans, we are all just innately pre-disposed to root for the underdog.  It’s in our DNA.  

If they end up beating us this year, forget it.  I certainly want them to beat Pittsburgh the second time they meet.

Wholeheartedly agree the dog and dog pound theme is tired, stupid, and needs to be retired.
