Will this game be streamed online anywhere? I want to watch Money Man on his debut. Thanks!

Pretty sure it's on the NFL Network, but not sure about online

It's on CBS for me in Columbus.

NFL network in Cincy. Lets see what Mr. Money has got tonight Ohio.

Mark my words..I don't need acceptance. I'm catching interceptions on you innocent pedestrians.

Watching the NFL Network and getting the call from Cleveland's Channel 3 news with Jim Donovan calling the game!

Starting to get geeked

Anybody wanna place bets on whether or not his performance tonight will remind people of how he won at A&M or will he be a bust for his first pre-season game?

Can we get rid of the cardboard cutout next to Donovan and get Bernie back?

I like our new look defense - much more aggressive than in years gone by - at least so far from what I've seen

I'll be honest - I've never heard of that call before - "There was a clear fumble but we as a 9 man crew with video - have no idea who recovered. Unbelievable

Just run a damn sneak there.

I think Hoyer looked good, his receivers didn't give him any help at all.  Manziel needs to lift some weights, he looks so skinny, he's going to get hurt.

Our DBs better learn how to tackle.

So sick of watching our dbs try and push guys down. Having flashbacks of the buckeyes the last couple years.

They will win the Super Bowl!

I wish.

Groveport Heisman's picture

Not even close. Need a solid run game to develop before anyone rational starts thinking that.

A very optimistic maybe.  I will say this though, if the browns experience any offensive line injuries they are screwed.  The browns 2nd string line is horrendous

They have a solid chance if the defense keeps in games...and I think that could go far in their division.

Couple nice plays there.

Johnny is exciting that's for sure. West will be a nice complement to Tate but that fumble didn't help

Oh I know - I was just in mid-type when they fumbled and I finished it. I re-read it and it's clear that I looked like knucklehead - thanks Brother.

No problem ... It was JB Shugarts on that last false start, though.

He's not playing football anymore, but I bet wherever that son of a gun is, he gets in a 3 point stance a few times a day just to jump out of it.

Is Desir's first name Snare or Bass?

KBonay's picture

It's tough, because JM is making plays. The o-line is getting blown up on run plays & false starts.  He's hitting his receivers....they just don't seem to want to catch them...

It's a Cleveland thing on the WR hands.

These commentators are all over Johnny Manziel... Just heard them praise him for a good pass that was actually terrible.

+1 HS
KBonay's picture

Which pass was that. The one that hit the wide out in the kneecaps and he didn't even attempt to catch? Other than that one, he has been on target. 

+3 HS
Byaaaahhh's picture

That was one of them, yes. Krause was facing away and turned just in time to see it hit his kneecaps. Could've dropped, though inertia and his direction would have made it difficult. Probably his fault on some of those things. But it was a low pass, and they said, "If I'm a quarterback, that's where I want to put it." Really? At his knees?

The 'don't sleep on Thigpen, a 7 year veteran' was kinda funny.

Johnny has actually looked pretty sharp and fearless. Been on the wrong end of penalties a shitty running game and butter fingers.

@TIM_MAYsports: There are two parts to having a great completion percentage: The throw and the catch. @JManziel2 is almost 100 percent on the former.

Wonder if they can pick up some receiving help on the waiver wire . . . but even so it takes a while to learn a playbook.

Forgive me, El Guapo. I know that I, Jefe, do not have your superior intellect and education. But could it be that once again, you are angry at something else, and are looking to take it out on me?

GreatLakesMike's picture

I thought both QBs looked alright. It seemed they had Manziel running the option read quite a bit. The WRs did not help either QB.

I like the stable of RBs they have. Little Shanny should be able to muster a decent running game. I know Austin had a key drop, but if he can stay healthy (big if, I know), then I could actually see the receiving options being good enough. A healthy Austin, Cameron, and Hawkins is not too bad IMO. 

My biggest frustration was all the drops. It must be something in the water.

they need WR help - really?  Who woulda thought about that?
