Browns Titans


Recommended Posts

Titans definitely. Browns, when they have played any Top 10 team (Ravens, Steelers etc.), they have laid an egg.

 

I have a feeling Browns are not even going to be competitive in this one and if they are, that should be good for my fantasy QB Tannehill in one of the leagues. :)

I think it could be close. Titans are a good team but they aren’t the Chiefs. They are in that second group with the colts and Browns. Colts just need to take care of business and whatever happens in this game helps us. If we lose it doesn’t matter what happens in this game.

I would still rather win the division, better seed and a home game. If the Colts win and Titans lose both will be 8-4 and at that point anything can happen. 

This! :number1:

I think we'll win enough games to secure a Wild Card, but we need help to win the AFC South and Tennessee dropping a conference game like this could help us alot in that regard.

Go Browns!

 

Winning the division is ALWAYS a team's primary regular season objective. Anything else is irrelevant until the division is either won or the team is eliminated from the possibility 

Unless we have Andrew Luck and get in as a 6th Seed and just destroy the 3 seeded Texans who won the South in 2018 haha . I agree though usually winning the division gives a team a better chance of winning a playoff game or 2. The higher seed and a home game usually helps. I would rather win the division as well.

Tiebreaker scenarios don't look too good vs the Titans (&%$% Jaguars loss!) It's still possible to flip the division record, but pretty unlikely. If we can match them (not absurd), we'd have a pretty good chance at the common opponents tiebreaker

 

We need to flip the overall record, or pray

    • Well thought out mock. Some of the additions I am not the biggest fan of(Ertz), but I can see them happening so, can't really beef with it too much.    I would also prefer we didn't spend a R2 pick on a run stuffing DT after paying 2 DTs long-term big money last year.    Other than that - love Newsome pick up, love Christiansen at that spot in the draft. Like the Patrick Jones pick. Love Deatrich Wise at that money. Overall very solid mock. Good job. 
    • Braden Smith allowed 1 QB hit and 0 sacks in 2020 with Rivers as QB.    
    • To the bolded, the point of having cap room and draft picks is to add good players. I don't think good roster management necessitates getting rid of good players when their contracts come up, not when you have the resources to keep them. Especially not if you're a good team, with contention in reach.    I think some overstate how "close" the Colts are, but I do think we're closer to being a contender than we are to being a team that should be stocking up picks to reshape the roster. And that's why 'forward-thinking Ballard' has been rolling forward tens of millions of cap every year.   As for the five players taking half the cap, that's not really where the Colts are, or will be. To keep it simple, once you factor in the pending cap increases -- the cap will be at $240m/year within the next two years, from the players' revenue split going up from 47% to 48.5%, from the TV contracts that are projected to nearly double to $10b/year, and from the 17th regular season game + 2 more playoff games -- having five $20m/year players is about 42% of your team's cap. And that's without going into contract structure and doing a year by year analysis of how your spending compares to the projected cap.   Teams with highly paid veteran QBs typically have about 40-50% of their cap tied into 6-8 players. Packers, Saints, Rams, Bucs, Chiefs, Steelers, Titans, etc. Pretty soon, you can add the Bills and Ravens to this list (and they're already close). The Cardinals are already there.    Right now, the Colts only have four guys above $10m/year (Wentz, Buckner, Kelly, Stewart). We have some room to add highly paid players, and still supplement the roster in free agency. Admittedly, my perspective is based on projected dramatic increases to the cap, but I would assume the Colts are factoring in those same increases. And because the Colts have some wiggle room right now, they might use a unique cap climate in 2021 to take advantage of their flexibility over the next 2-3 seasons, and structure contracts in a way that allows them to keep their young guys and still add a couple of veterans in free agency.  
    • I didn't think it that bad.   In hindsight it is.   Colts gave up the 22nd pick in the draft for the previous years #3 pick in the draft. In his rookie year, Richardson had good numbers - 950 yards rushing, 11 TD's, 51 receptions and 1 TD.  That was in 15 games with Weeden as the QB.  I thought with Luck as the QB his game would step up.      Was it a mistake - YES.   Was it the worst trade in Colts history - Not even close.   Let me remind you of this bad trade:   In search of a franchise QB, the Colts swung a deal with Atlanta for the top pick in the 1990 NFL Draft and used the pick on George, a homegrown product from Warren Central. The cost was steep. The Falcons received OT Chris Hinton, WR Andre Rison, a 1991 first round pick and a fifth round pick in 1990. A six-time Pro Bowler for the Colts, Hinton started 80 more games, including a Pro Bowl season in 1991 and an All-Pro nod in 1993.   Rison started for the Colts as a rookie and caught 52 passes in 1989. With the Falcons, Rison exploded, eclipsing 1,000 receiving yards in four of his five seasons in Atlanta. He finished his Falcons career with 5,633 yards and 56 touchdowns before bouncing around with five other teams in his final six seasons. The 1991 first round pick turned into WR Mike Pritchard, who spent nine solid, but unspectacular seasons in the NFL, finishing with 5,187 receiving yards. As for George, he spent four uninspiring seasons with the Colts with a 14-35 record as a starter, more interceptions than touchdowns (46 to 41) and was traded in 1994 to Atlanta.
    • You're kidding right? So Chris Hinton is worthy but AC isn't?
