I thought the game plan was very run-oriented, as it should be. Proper balance of run / pass. 35 rushes, 23 passes. Not sure what you watched.Watched the first half,they got the little guy of the pocket very nicely which will work a few weeks at least.That's his element with lots of targets to throw to,really need to run more with those two horses.
Agreed. Loved the play action with Mayfield on the move out of the pocket.What I found encouraging was that they called plays directed at the strength of the offense - running the ball - and the strengths of their quarterback. I think it should settle in on we Browns fans that Mayfield isn't going to be as dynamic as we thought, but he has a skill set that can be shaped well by a proper game plan. I was a bit surprised the TEs didn't get more targets, but that could come with more familiarity. When you have two guys rushing for over 200 yards, you don't have to expand your playbook too much.
While I am encouraged with 35 points - and that's a lot of points in the NFL, I don't give a damn who you're playing - I'm almost as discouraged with the 30 allowed. I'm hoping Greedy Williams and Mack Wilson return soon. I don't know if Drew Samples would have looked like a poor man's Travis Kelce if Wilson was dropping back into coverage.
I’ll say this for Sendejo, he’s always around the ball. Unfortunately, he’s either two steps slow or two steps early.He's involved in a bad play every damn week. Joseph isn't a whole lot better but he occasionally stumbles into being in the right place at the right time.
Have to take the Cowboys. They have too many good receivers, the Browns secondary is shaky and Prescott is mobile enough to maneuver away from pressure. The only way I believe the Browns can win is to hope Chubb and Hunt run their tails off and keep the Cowboys offense on the sidelines. If Mayfield throws more than 15-20 times, the Browns lose.We will find out a lot the next 3 weeks, Cowboys, Colts and Steelers... Cowboys game may be 41-38, not sure who wins. But the defenses are not great...
