    The Browns very nearly beat the Steelers and have lost 3 games by 3 points or less.

    Regardless, the calls always favor the larger market, popular team. If it's a coin flip situation, they're gonna give the benefit of the doubt to the wealthier team.

    Except none of those guys seem to be players that justify THAT high of a pick IMO.
     
    I guess we will find out when Zeke gets suspended if his .6TDs and 105 all-purpose yards a game can be replicated by a committee. At the end of the day, a single-workhorse RB simply isn't worth a top-5 pick.

    lol at the players saying he's good enough. As if they would say anything else. Also the idea the conversation can't continue unless Kaapernick is on a team is some of the dumbest shit I've ever heard.

    Yea, I disagree we have two good backs. I think we have a ton of investment in the blocking (OL, TEs, FB), and have developed a run-heavy/playaction offense that features the RBs. Considering that, I think the RBs are underperforming.
     
    I'd grab another RB next year in the mid-rounds, someone with a better balance of power and explosion. There have been a number of times where the RBs just haven't had the acceleration to hit the hole. I see a lot of yards being left on the field.
     
    Having said that, I do think Murray has been much better as a 3rd down back and still has value in that role (but the life of a RB suggests it's only going to get worse, and fast). Henry has value in the second half once we've worn down the D. His combo of speed and strength and his seeming preference to run laterally on sweeps and outside leads works better when the D struggles to chase him. Early game though when the D is fresh and can track him sideline to sideline, his soft running negates his size advantage and he's just another slow plodding big back without the ability to break tackles.
     
    I just don't put much stock into stats that are so heavily skewed by a couple runs end of game. It tells me our RBs are good at those moments -- I want a RB who is good in the first 3 quarters.

    oldschool reacted to OILERMAN in I heard a rumor that Aaron Rodgers is gay

    Although attitudes towards gay people are improving, most lesbian, gay and bisexual people have experienced difficulties in their lives. Being gay does not, in and of itself, cause mental health problems. Instead, homophobic bullying, rejection from family, harassment at work and poor responses from healthcare professionals are still commonplace for many lesbian, gay and bisexual people.
     
    Half of gay and bisexual men said they have felt life was not worth living compared to 17 per cent of men in general. Almost half (46 per cent) of gay and bisexual men who have felt this way did so in the last year. Nearly one in four (23 per cent) lesbian, gay and bisexual young people have tried to take their own life at some point.
     
    I don't think the Trump and Jamal's of the world understand the hell gays go through in everyday life from the bullying.
     
    I assume titansfan posted on the board to escape this hell only to run into a monster that perhaps reminded him life was not worth living. titansfan has since posted since this instance so it looks like no blood was spilled this time.

    I listened to a florio interview last week and he said he knows other color commentators can do what Romo does having played the game but they don't put it out there. He said it will be interesting to see if others start doing it. I didn't mind Romo at first but he's really becoming annoying. He just needs to dial it back a bit.

    Henry leaves a lot of yards on the field. Remind me what his average was Monday before the last run? Great toss runner but struggles to press the hole between the tackles. As for Murray hes clearly still hurt but is playing through it because he knows Henry is on his heels. Only a matter of time.

    No shit. The crabtree penalty was textbook. I thought the refs did a great job at the end of the game.

    Hilarious, another rookie DB, LB or DL taken in Davis's spot would not have made a big impact on this defense. After 6 games nobody we could have taken at 5 would have made this defense any better. We have a better shot at improving the offense with Davis even after missing 6 games. And this is from a guy who wanted defense at 5. This team will go as far as the offense takes it this year and its pretty obvious.

    They should sit Murray this week. He's having trouble shaking this hammy, this will give him 2 weeks. I'd also like to see Henry have like a 30 carry day.

    That's the thing that people are failing to acknowledge... I was right on the Murray has to go train week 1 which was being conducted by Oman I guess. The problem is, most people who jumped on after that atrocious week are so gung-ho on standing their ground that majority of this site fails to see the reasonable middle-ground.
     
    Murray obviously isn't the RB he was last year for the most part, but the fact that he still looks like more than a competent complete back is good enough for him to have a large role. Henry has looked much better than last year (and preseason) but IMO has underwhelmed relative to board expectations/perception
