  • Kruunch's Take (Browns Game)

    Was making merry on Monday so a little late with this. Without further ado and in no particular order:

    1) 2008 called ... they want their Ahmad Bradshaw back. I like when he runs mad!

    2) 2003 called ... they want Ahmad Bradshaw to hold it high and tight.

    3) CRUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUZ! What a great story. I will be so mad if this kid doesn't retire a Giant.

    4) Offensive line starting to come together. Now let's see them do it against a team with a pass rush.

    5) Our defense is seriously bad. Not mediocre. Bad. JPP continues to be the only consistent presence on the line (although that may be selling Joseph a bit short)

    6) Stevie Brown is the next Polamalu. You heard it here first (if you're going to jump on the bandwagon, might as well do it while the good seats are still available )

    7) Eli looks like he has kidney stones when leading in the 4th quarter.

    8) Chase Blackburn is our 3rd corner? Who knew?!

    9) Rolle was so out of position it would have cost him extra postage if he mailed it in. If we pay him $10 mil a year could he stop playing linebacker?

    10) Welcome to the NFL David Wilson!

    When was Rolle out of position? I actually thought the browns game was one of Rolle's best performances as a safety

      Did you not see the TD catch with Chase Blackburn playing slot nickel (inadvertently)?

      Rolle is a great run stuffer and blitzer ... he's down right awful when he's playing .... errr .... the Safety position.

        Yes, it was a tampa 2. Blackburn was supposed to drive deep middle, Rolle responsible for the other side of the field.

        Stevie Brown had deep responsibility for that side of the field, but had come up on a short route instead.

        That play is solely Stevie Brown's fault

          We'll agree to disagree then.

          And Tampa 2 != Cover 3. Blackburn was in perfect position (for his assignment).

            Yes, blackburn was in perfect position. So was Rolle.

            Stevie Brown was not.

              Agreed, Stevie bit on the under route when he should have been playing deep. that is not on rolle. stevie even admitted he was out of position. Also to say Stevie Brown is the next Polamalu is a joke right?

                I need to watch it when the game tape comes out, but that second TD pass to Josh Gordon may have been partially Stevie Brown's fault too. Looked like Webster was playing outside in a cover 4, and Gordon ran a skinny post. Any inside route Brown has to try to jump as well, he was a couple steps late. Though in that case Webster certainly needs to make a play there too

                  I'm surprised that Randle coming up big for us isn't more of a story. Both himself and Hixon were a lot more impressive than Cruz was.

                    You are right especially Hixon, after the 2 surgeries being able to climb the ladder on that high throw from Eli was nice.

                      That TD was Brown's fault, not Rolle's

                        Here's the thing about that ... deep middle route against a Tampa 2 defense are going to get the attention of:

                        A) The veteran safety.

                        B) The rookie 4th string safety

                        It wasn't a sideline pass ... either safety had range on the middle of the field and the veteran usually is assigned the greater range if a toss up. So yeah, I say it's Rolle's fault more than the 4th string rookie's.

                        But you say tomato, I say beet. Shrug.

                          Hard to talk about Randle in a three TD performance by Cruz.

                          But yeah it was really nice seeing him contribute Sunday (I expect that level of contribution from Hixon when healthy).

                            Brown admitted it was his fault, classy move but don't do it again.

                              Linebackers were absolutely horrible behind an equally horrible d-line. I saw Kiwi get knocked down by a WR on a run his way. You can add Kiwi to the list of under-achievers in 2012. I don't get the Eli comment. Bradshaw is tough, I do agree he should do the Tiki.
