With everyone that’s left the Ravens D, I find it hard to believe they are still a contender for the North.
This might be the dumbest fucking statement made. The Giants decline has been terrible coaching followed by inconsistent QB play. Not because of OBJ, he is no different from most top WRs having egos, so please don’t make believe he’s the only WR out there like that. Sorry dude that was flat out stupid on your part.
You do realize he missed two seasons due to injury right? 2015 & 2016....Saying someone is good to go doesn’t mean they’re not suceptiple to re-injury which I believe was the point of the OSU medical staff saying he has a high likelihood of re-injury
Lol why, because he ran a 4.31 on an 8-5 team? What makes you believe his talents wouldn’t have been wasted this past season? Good lord most people say the combine is a glorified track meet and then buy into the hype of a guy running a 4.3. I’m not against the guy, but the best thing that happened to him was going to Auburn as OSU continually recruited elite CBs that weren’t dealing with injury issues.
Are we really comparing OSU and Auburn? Dean out two seasons due to injury in 2015 & 2016. How buried do you think he would have been with the talent of Lattimore and Ward moving up among others. Auburn is not on the same level and wasn’t a full time starter till last season. Congrats to him for sticking with it, but not sure he could have cracked the starting lineup at OSU. The medical hardship was probably the best thing that happened to him
I never had a problem with him planting a flag. He’s not the first person to do it and he won’t be the last. If you don’t want it to happen don’t get beat. As you want to critique Browns fans it’s really humorous that the only people calling it immature are OSU fans that That should have felt more disrespected by the LB play that night. OU felt disrespected the year before. Suck it up and play the game. They did and he backed it up.
More accurate in he did it for 3 years at two different schools. Murray had a great season as well, but 3 years of consistency says that Mayfield is what he is. Did Murray have a great season due to the system? Nobody has been afraid to say the system played more of a role in inflated stats. More people are quick to say Murray can succeed because of his athleticism and because Wilson is the same size. Last year it was Mayfield didn’t have the size to go #1.
I’m gonna go with a no on that. 1 year vs 3 years of consistency and Mayfield was better accuracy wise. Immaturity is an excuse. Facts were they were all bitching that he was only 6’1 and threw on the run and didn’t play under center. Literally everything Murray is. Trying to understand why the narrative is different
What I don’t get is Murray is rated higher than Mayfield was. Last year everyone said Mayfield was too short at 6’1 now it’s size is not an issue for the 5’10 Murray.
He inherited a team that lost a 4 year starting QB in Leidner. Let’s not make believe Minnesota is set up to reload. He’s been starting freshman QBs the last two seasons. Keep in mind Claeys was fired because 10 players were suspended due to sexual assault allegations. Fleck didn’t come strolling into the perfect situation.
I’m unaware of any locker room issues with Hunt at KC and he was with them well after the hotel incident without issues. You don’t have to like him, but from a football standpoint this makes the Browns better with low risk high reward payoff with a player looking to redeem himself. Let’s not make believe Hunt was not getting another shot. Browns just got a top 5 RB for 1M.
That’s the thing though. It’s his decision, people can disagree all they want with it. But they’re not the ones in line to make the NFL as the top pick or signing him to a big contract. Let’s not kid ourselves, players come to elite programs for a chance to get to the NFL, and elite programs make a lot of money off of their players. Take it for what it is, which is a business decision for someone to rehab who just got to 100% yesterday.
Why does he need to do any of that at OSU? Seems pretty selfish to tell people how they should manage their career. OSU being great and all doesn’t mean it was in his best interest to stay there for him and rehab. I’d say focusing on rehab 24/7 was probably a better business decision for him than being a glorified cheerleader that you want him to be.
He was never going to play another game for OSU if he stayed. Seems like some people wanted a cheerleader that they can show on the sidelines and talk about his injury. I’m not going to fault a top 3 pick focusing on a career over a degree that could be obtained at any time. The people that get worked up about him leaving don’t understand two things. 1) college is supposed to set you up for your career, his is NFL football. 2) Fooling themselves by saying they wouldn’t do the same thing with tens of millions on the line and eliminate the distraction of college.
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.
