Analytics has zero to do with being a fan.   You either are,  or you aren't.     You should have seen the 80s and early 90s teams we fielded.    This team is miles better than any of those teams.   

Most of the media and some in here are picking the Browns so if we win please don't say we beat a weak team lol. If you do you are a hypocrite.    I think going to 2 or 3 games a year of you

I used to let losses bother me. We traveled to both Colts losses to the Pats in the playoffs back in 03 and 04. I thought about the 03 loss in particular for several weeks after the game.    Th

Sadly I was actually right with my early report regarding Leonard. Even had I not heard it on ESPN I had feeling he wouldn't play because a groin injury is nothing to mess around with. He should rest so he doesn't aggravate it, it is like a hamstring as in you have to be careful. Losing AC has me more concerned because protecting Philip's blind side is very important.

Wonder if this means that Smith will move over to LT or if Le'Raven Clark or Chaz Green steps into the LT spot... while Maniac is a star of the D, they played pretty well when he went down last week.  I'm a bit more worriedwith the loss of AC.

Reich said Clark will start at LT.

I do agree, they probably move Smith to LT and let Clark man the RT spot or Chaz Green man it. 

 

Just means that Jack Doyle or JT will be chipping the DE more instead of catching more passes in the flat but I am OK with that as long as Rivers is upright.

Garrett likes to play on the right side though.

Regardless, wherever he lines up, ask your TE or RB to chip constantly to slow him down. If he stunts, the OG and tackle need to be ready to double team and the RB/TE can go up the flat quicker.

I’m fine with Doyle staying in and chipping because they’ll probably use Burton more in the passing game anyway.

That's not great news. I expect us to try running a lot on them and engaging quick passing game in an attempt to mitigate the mismatch that will be Garrett vs either of our OTs in pass rush situations.

 

It may not be such a bad thing because their weakness in coverage is underneath, in the middle. So, the quick passing offense like Minshew did against us can still yield results. Denzel Ward will be harder to throw against while they play 1-on-1 on the outside and we have to pick on the safeties and LBs, IMO. If their weakness was their outside CBs, then we would need more time for routes to form, which might work against us in this situation. 

 

I am confident Reich and Siranni will game plan accordingly.

They will play him wherever the advantage is. Him vs. Clark is recipe for disaster. Not to mention having the slowest QB in the NFL 

Yeah. we will need TE help and maybe Nelson can help in a double team.

I blame the announcers talking about how we’ve started the same Oline 20+ weeks straight. It’s like with a kicker. “So and so has made 49 kicks in a row” and then they miss the next one. 
 

I know it’s a superstition, but still. I’m not looking forward to AC being out. Probably have to run a lot of TE schemes for extra blocking.

They have been saying that for a while now, and eventually, at some point, the best of O-lines will have an injury.

Not good, not good.

 

I figured DL would be out

 

A little surprised AC is out though with a rib injury?

 

Next man up

 

 

With the Browns rushing attack and our most likely uptick in ball control plays, this might be the quickest game of the year(time wise).

Thanks.. I kinda figured that as Clark came in the 4-5 snaps that AC missed last week, but on the depth chart they've got Green as the backup LT and Clark backing up RT.

 

I actually have faith in Clark.  I won't be shocked if we see Pinter as an in-line TE more than normal against CLE... I definitely expect MAC or Doyle to be lined up on the left side a lot as well, as Burton doesn't really seem to be much of a blocker but Doyle and Mo Alie-Cox are both very good blockers.

That is what will make this win good if we pull it off. I still have it at 50/50 but losing 2 key players like we are isn't good.

 

Rivers is 5-2 vs the Browns including the 2018 game they played. Their secondary in the middle is banged up, so we should get enough production in the passing game. Their run defense is real good, so our key to winning this game is our passing game.

Interesting how people see film differently.  Darius Butler sees coverages. Dr. Chao sees how Darius Leonard injures his groin (2nd Clip, of Colts, both views).

Uh oh, without Castonzo might be a little scary.

 Next man up, no excuses.

    • I see many of the draft "experts" talk about what the Colts will do in the draft.   The QB position, even with all the improved scouting techniques is a highly flawed .   If you look at history some interesting facts come out. Drafting a QB in the first round is a high risk endeavor    In the past 9 Years 20 QBs have been drafted in the first round.  I wanted to come up with some metrics to see the % that have worked out with the team that they drafted them   I am "measuring" the results with the simple question,   Would the NFL team make the same draft decision, at their position in that years draft, in hindsight - Its a YES/NO decision   For the ones that are still TBD (last few years) I counted these as YES. The selection of Goff as a "NO" is not that he is a horrible QB, but a simple question.... If you could do the pick again would you take Goff at number 1 overall.....  my guess is the Rams would have gone another way   2012 Draft Round 1 1st Andrew Luck - YES 2nd Robert Griffin - NO 8th Ryan Tannehil - NO 22nd Brandon Wheedon - NO   2013 Draft Round 1 16th EJ Manuel - NO   2014 Draft Round 1 3rd Pick Blake Bortles - NO 22nd Johnny Manziel - NO   2015 Draft Round 1 1st - Jameis Winston - NO 2nd Marcus Marriota  - NO   2016 Draft Round 1 1st Jared Goff - NO 2nd Carson Wentz - YES 22nd Paxton Lynch - NO   2017 Draft Round 1 2nd Mitch Trubiski - NO 10th Pat Mahomes - YES 12th Deshaun Watsun - YES   2018 Draft Round 1 1st Baker Mayfield - YES 3rd Sam Darnold - NO 7th Josh Allen - YES 10th Josh Rosen - NO 32nd Lamar Jackson - YES   With this data, drafting a QB in the first round is a 30% hit rate   The folks that want to give up 2 or 3 first round picks to move up to get Fields or Wilson may want to think deeper on this   From my perspective, and looking at the analytics it would appear that drafting the best BPA OL, DL , CB, or even WR,  available at 21 is the safest approach   And going with an extremely low risk/ low cost FA (Winston) or if the deal is decent, offering a trade to get Matthew Stafford. (Stafford route is my first choice), but I wouldnt want to  get fleeced   If the right LT isnt there at 21, there are a few FA OTs that we could pick up       Let me know your thoughts...........      
    • I know right? Word outa GB is that Love has not fared well to this point in any facet and doesn't look all that but yet some want the Colts to trade for him... Ha!! 
    • Brady had to finally go to the NFC to play Brees and Rodgers in the post-season as neither one made it to any of his 9 SBs.
    • Without getting over the top, yes, it would work and it'd probably work pretty well.. like SB contender well.
