  1. Rodney Hudson; released by Raiders. North of 30 but still effective.
  2. Yep, Lamar to Mahomes : Welcome to my world and oh the dropped balls
  3. Good points Max and Hollywood is right. The O does need to correct this passing deficiency - big time. It didn't help losing Ronnie Stanley and TE Boyle but every team loses a few key players. On offense, we finally need to address the Center position and select/acquire a strong player this offseason. We haven had a legit C since Matt Birk. They absolutely need to clean this up this offseason. Lamar cant survive these keystone cop hikes next season. In addition, Lamar needs that big time possession receiver we haven's seen since Anquan. Draft or acquire via FA ; j
  4. The rain/snow forecast sounds like a definite maybe . As for Lamar, let’s hope the Bills are singing the blues and the old Paul Simon tune. The excitement and buildup for the game is exasperating.
  5. Pretty even matchup. Whoever does the the better job of executing and taking care of the rock should win. Should be a heckuva fun, exciting game and weekend of football.
  6. TSY - Bingo ! The offseason $ with Stanley, OBJ, Lamar and others on offense will be interesting.
  7. Max, your analysis really nailed it. I see the key matchups as (1) our running game vs Buffalo's D, and (2) Josh Allen vs our secondary. I like our running game and exploiting their D. Our running attack, given the weather conditions, must be strong, protect the rock and control the clock. Buffalo's offense, especially pass O, is prolific. Our pass rush and secondary must play complimentary D and cant let Allen beat us with his feet. Both teams are red hot, motivated and well coached. Whoever executes the best and protects the rock will come out on top !
  8. Spen, you cut me to the quick. Maybe I was a bit premature with my pedigree remarks about Lamar. Maybe not. Here's the thing - Lamar has a very unconventional skill set and he's almost impossible for teams to game plan for. When he's doing his thing and yes, having fun, he's almost impossible to stop and a helluva lot of fun to watch. Sure, fun isn't the metric or requirement; its the effect or outcome. Bill Pollian, ESPN, & NFL Network, offered an interesting perspective on XM radio this morning. He said with Lamar's unbelievable skill set, you almost c
  9. Yes, we are fortunate to have Lamar who, when he’s having fun, is the most dynamic, electric and exciting player in football. These times and highlight reels of Lamar are fleeting and extraordinary - we should all enjoy and, like Lamar, have fun watching them. I know I am.
  10. Yep, the key now is how to keep that mojo, staying focused and hungry ......one game at a time. Our guys are hopefully looking at Buffalo (and each of the next opponents) as a bigger and stronger challenge and climbing the ladder......one rung at a time.
  11. Thanks Max ! Ain’t the beer cold ?!
  12. Well, Lamar had fun, D balled out D Henry 40 YARDS !!!!!!! and we exorcised a BIG demon today. Damn fun to watch and Max is buying beers for everyone! Woo hoo
  13. Lamar reverting to his bad no fun habits again. Not a good start !
  14. Let’s see whether Lamar has fun today. Much hinges on that !
  15. I reiterate - all three things must happen for us to win. If all three happen, Lamar is happy and we are all happy and moving on to the next round. If we don't have the trifecta, Lamar is bummed and the narrative (on him not winning a PO game or the big one) continues and we are all left wondering in the off season. Lets get the trifecta boys and have a cold one late Sunday !!!!
  16. For us to have a successful Music City Sunday, three things need to happen: 1. Our D line has to be relentless in shutting down the the King Henry., start to finish. 2. D has to be in Tannehill's grill all day - Wink needs to strategically dial up pass rushes - & Judon & Co needs some big time sacks. Tannehill is going deep, maybe the first series/play from scrimmage to AJ Brown or Davis. We cannot allow that crap ! 3. Lamar needs to be the Lamar (after he hit the latrine in Cleveland), play His game, run, pass, elude, and MOSTLY HAVE FUN.
  17. I expect a war in Nashville on Sunday. Should be a great, old school, smash mouth slobber knocker. Can't wait ! Lets hope our boys walk into the lions den, carry a spear, scream like banshees and finish business this time.
  18. Yep, lace em up and get ready for an AFCN slobberknocker. Every game is a playoff game from here on out
  19. Yep, cant sleep on Bengals. If I'm Harbaugh, I'm showing the film of the 2017 game ending dagger that knocked us out and sent Buffalo into the POs. Yes, I'd let that crappy feeling set in real good and remind them of how these so called weaker teams just need 1 game to wake up - Cincy against Pittsburgh and Jets victory over the Browns. Most importantly, Lamar and the offense simply need to taker care of business, play their game, dictate the tempo, have fun and play winning football. Do that and we will be allright!
  20. Yep, Andrews and Snead GO TO Receivers. That and pound the crap out the rock. Not necessarily in that order.
  21. Chuck Thompson lives eh ? Aint the beer cold ! Damn I'm going to have to watch tonight on NFL replay with a Nattie Boh !
  22. Count me among the ones who had it all figured out - and picked a high playing, ascending Browns team to exact revenge from an earlier 38-6 blowout in Bmore in September and convinced it would take both a shutdown of Baker Mayfield and an epic performance by Lamar to win. Only one of those 2 things happened but what I hadn't figured on was Lamar's beyond epic performance. He played with relentless passion, energy and determination - the substance that makes him and this team a winner. In Ray Ray like fashion, Lamar flat out willed his team to victory. Wow; just wow ! You just ca
  23. In order to win, Lamar and the O would need an epic performance and the D has to play lights for 60 minutes. Anything less, won’t cut it.
  24. Tough call tonight - who the heck knows who shows up ? Did Lamar and the Boys rediscover their our mojo against the Cowboys ? The Browns have a load of talent - especially on the offense and won convincingly in Tennessee. They are playing at a high level and on the rise . We are enigmatic and aren't playing at a level we saw last year....yet. Can we continue last week's success and show up from here on out ? Conventional wisdom says the Browns are playing at a higher level, at home and with a very healthy backfield and WR corps. My gut says we might be start
