Joe Burrow had insane numbers as well. What someone does in mop up duty doesn’t necessarily mean it’s going to translate as a starter. You’re crying about a guy who talked trash about Fields and guaranteed he would beat him out. If you’re going trash talk at least try and compete in the spring. I’m more disappointed that Martell was all talk. I was looking forward to a QB competition.
As an OSU fan after last weekend, I had no confidence in this defense. They made the plays necessary and made that #1 D look like a joke. Am I the only person thinking that after 6 years this was the biggest win in the game surprising?
OT round 1, KJ Hill 2nd round is what I’m hoping for
Are you still mad that Hyde got traded? JAX has a better line and Hyde had 11 yards rushing on 7 carries and will be the 3rd RB after week 10. Chubb is solid doing better than Hyde. Conner is playing for a team picked to compete for the super bowl with AB, JuJu opening up the run game. Landry is good but Landry with a 4th and 6th rd rookie WR opposite of him is easy to shut down.
That’s what having a competent kicker can do. Browns are 4-4 with that
They technically had their QB under Fisher, it took McVey getting the production out of Goff. I have no doubt Baker is a solid QB. Need an OL and a legit WR to compliment Landry. Hue is done, he had the 8 games to prove it with a competent roster and failed
The good news is, Ash will be available to come back as D coordinator next year.
They would have signed Crowell to a similar deal and still probably draft Chubb. If not Hyde. Hyde was a signing to make it easier to pass on Barkley at 1. Chubb’s 178yds on 16 carries probably gives them confidence to know they can move forward with him and at least get something for Hyde instead of the inevitable of nothing and cutting him after the season. The question is, is Hyde a good RB or is he an average RB preventing good RBs from getting touches? His numbers are ok, not great. Chubb and Duke need more touches, the only way it happens is by diminishing Hyde’s role. Probably all around it’s a good trade by everyone and equal to the value of what it was
He’s only worth what the market is willing to offer. The Browns got a 5th rounder for Hyde who’s only needed for 3 games until Fournette gets back. If Hyde was going to be a starter for them sure, but he’s going to be behind Fournette and Yeldon. The south is very weak you could get nothing in return after this season when he gets cut
So you want 3rbs not being fully maximized.....Sorry dude, but Chubb and Hyde should have the same output with Chubb having more upside and Duke will have more reps which provides that receiving threat out of the backfield. Right now you’re arguing to keep all 3 just for a what if scenario. I’d like to see the money in the trade go towards a WR that was asking more than they originally wanted to pay.
I don’t hate the move either. I love Hyde, but people are acting like his YPC was great and irreplaceable. Fairly certain Chubb can at least gain 3yds a carry. Duke’s value as a receiver is out of the backfield being a mismatch for LBs. Assuming he can line up in slot and take on CBs with the same ease is definitely wishful thinking.
If Hyde had not spent his whole career on the DL at some point he probably would have garnered a higher pick. But if he did he probably doesn’t get cut by the 49ers either. To gain a 1000 yards in the NFL is to average 63/game and he has yet to do so at any point. The RB position is easily replaceable if you draft right. Currently Bell is being replaced and there doesn’t seem to be a lot of teams reaching out to make that trade with Pittsburgh.
The Browns also need to play their 2nd round RB and get Duke involved. This allows both to do so. The future is not Hyde. I love Hyde as an OSU fan, but if you think you have your RB of the future now in Chubb he needs the reps. Not Hyde who is probably gone after this year. Cut him or get a draft pick is the option. They got the Draft pick instead of cutting him at the end. I would have liked to see a higher pick but what’s the going rate for a guy that’s never rushed for a 1000 and has been hurt every year?
Probably a 3 game rental with Fournette projected back in week 10
I’d say UGA getting housed today made them the worst top 3 team this weekend. I think the OL needs to improve the run blocking. I think teams are still daring us to pass and making a mistake on that front. You can fix running. You can’t fix passing as easily
I thought this and I heard a caller after the game say the same thing. As a run team for since 2012, and now we’re a team with a great QB that is 72% passing it’s as if we’re pretty solid at pass blocking and we forgot how to run block. IMO it comes down to the OL. Also I don’t agree with putting your smallest RB in on 4th and 1.
Nice, now the Browns have an unlimited pool of soccer players to tryout as their future FG kicker.
FWIW, he had a pretty solid game today. And he hasn’t been bad at all this year. He’s not a ttun guy anymore, he’s a Brown and for the sake of my team I will support him. Glad to see he didn’t make bad returns today.
The performance is much better than last years game after Penn State. The D made adjustments after half, maybe give them the benefit of coming off a big emotional win without their best defensive player. I think this team has time to improve before it really matters.
Browns keep 5th, send back 7th
The Pats also signed Kenny Britt and Corey Coleman for a week, so let’s pump the breaks on every move they make is golden. I personally wanted Gordon to work out this year. But if you have a guy that’s highly unreliable and is a failed test from being banned a 5th rounder is a pretty good deal for a guy who has played 10 games in 5 years. Right now Calloway is not in any jeopardy from being banned so that fact is why he’s more valuable and he just watched Gordon get shipped out, so hopefully he’s got the message the team comes first. Not injuring yourself at photo shoot
He had it 5 years ago, he’s been gone so long I don’t think anyone knows what he is anymore talent wise. I’m sure he’s still good, but I’m guessing they’re happy with Antonio Calloway and are willing to part ways with Gordon.
Landry was acquired for 4th round pick. I’d say a 5th rounder is a pretty good deal considering Gordon has only played 11 games in 5 years and is a failed test from being banned for life.
Hue is gone if he doesn’t win. No coach is jumping at the chance to coach the Browns with the roster that was in place two years ago? The constant firing of coaches had to stop. At least now the roster is more desirable and threat of being fired in less than two years is gone so you weren’t going to find great candidates if you fired Hue 2 years ago
