Mcdermott telling reporters Nathan Peterman likely to start again this week.
The last time he played the chargers was a comedy of errors. How can't you find a qb better than this if you aren't ready to play Allen on a bad team? Go trade like the Colts did last year when that Tolzien guy was an embarrassment.

Yea the Peterman thing is baffling, he's a 5th round pick so it's not like he even had a pedigree or you're trying to justify draft capital spent. Kaepernick aside, there's guys available that while obviously are not good, have put up far less embarrassing tape than Peterman, like Landry Jones who was solid in relief of Roethlisberger last year, Paxton Lynch was a 1st round pick, and is a complete bust but doesn't turn the ball over 3 times in a half at least. Tons of young guys on practice squads. If you can just find a crap inefficient game manager who doesn't give the ball away at an absurd rate, you can hang in games and get to a lucky 8-8 season.

I don't get why these teams with an obviously awful QB room aren't constantly bringing in new guys hoping to luck out and strike gold or at least find a decent backup. If they're not going to play Allen, audition 3 or 4 guys this year, why not. they could be just as bad as peterman, but why not find out?

NFL coaches/front offices are just way too risk averse, and coaches have massive egos to think everyone is just too dumb to learn their complex offensive system without an offseason of prep, which yea is obviously somewhat true, but I'd rather start literally anyone else with a dumbed down playbook. No matter how well Peterman knows the system, he doesn't have the prerequisite skill set to execute it.

We'll see about that. Seems like an awful lot of points to give to a Browns team whose defense completely dominated a great Steelers offense down the stretch and in overtime. And those points are going to a team who was humiliated by a TB team who a lot of people thought would be one of the worst in the league. And, the Saints' offense rolled up a lot of mostly meaningless numbers late in the game after getting absolutely rolled for the first 2 1/2 quarters.

I'm not saying the Browns are going to win, but this team has legitimate talent unlike past years. And, this is the first week Tyrod and Josh Gordon will actually have to practice together, with Jarvis Landry, Hyde, Calloway, Njoku, Duke Johnson, etc. The Browns haven't been this healthy in several years.

The only guy who didn't practice today was Emmanuel Ogbah who hurt his ankle early against the Steelers but still isn't ruled out for the Saints game. Everyone else is healthy.

We'll see what happens, but I'm on the otherside of that bet. To me, that is a disrespectful amount of points when you consider the horrendous Bills are 7 point dogs to the Chargers ... a Chargers team who managed to stay within 10 against the Chiefs hitting on all cylinders with a new QB who no one has any tape on to study his tendencies and his plethora of weapons.

This is how it is going to be, I guess, until the Browns show otherwise. And ties don't help.

Good post. Said everything I wanted to.

Named Allen their starter yesterday. Couldn't tell you if Allen is ready or not. I like the big arm prospect. He's got little to no chance with that line and bare talent at the skill positions. How much can mccoy help the kid when they're already down 2 or 3 scores before the half? Why did they sign mccarron and then dump him anyway? Bills look like everything we rail on the Browns for.

Why does it feel like the Giants are in this spot every season?

Notoriously slow starters Even in their defeating the 18-0 Patriot season they were 0-2 and were staring 0-3 in the face down 17-0 at halftime to the Skins. They toughened up and had a goal line stop to win that game and the rest is history
