I expect nothing exciting tomorrow. Not from the Browns at least. I’m done.
Yeah, QB Brandon Weeden has been looking real good (haven’t heard anyone mention QB2 in quite some time). WR Josh Gordon is emerging as a playmaker and WR Josh Cooper has been a nice surprise! Hell, even WR Greg Fucking Little has been catching the ball.
RB Trent Richardson hasn’t exploded, yet, as I’ve expected him to. His ribs have been dinged up the last couple weeks and he appeared slow last week. In his stead, RB Montario Hardesty has carried the ball quite well…
Lots of positives there, right? So why do I expect nothing?
Because this douchebag is still calling the plays…
He keeps Weeden under center more often than not, instead of putting him in the shotgun and spreading the offense out.
He only calls running plays 35% of the time, so it doesn’t matter who’s running the ball, they’re not getting enough carries. Shurmer prolly saw that San Diego’s defense ranks number 2 against the run and won’t dress any RBs tomorrow.
Our soft defense doesn’t give up a ton of huge pass plays, but we’re terrible across the middle. I expect San Diego’s TE Antonio Gates to have a huge day.
The fact that we can’t stop the run means that San Diego RB Ryan Mathews might just have a record day.
A lot of San Diego’s success tomorrow will depend on which Philip Rivers shows up. I have him on my fantasy team, so I know he’s had a few pretty bad games; but if he gets rolling, he might pick us apart.
I guess we’ll see what happens…
Anyway, I’m heading over to
Frank’s The Mayor’s for a big Halloween party at Funtown! Let the debauchery begin!
