We’re back from our hiatus! The Browns and Buckeyes treated us to wins last weekend. But the Indians seem to be falling out of the playoff hunt. We’ll talk about the Browns/Saints game and talk about where they are at after two games in the new season. It’s GameTime!
Running Time: 56:25
1Q: Browns vs Redskins
- Browns 26, Saints 24.
- Great drive from Hoyer.
- Clutch catches from Barnidge, Austin and Hawkins.
- Impressive when you’re missing Gordan, Tate and Cameron.
- Hard to keep Brees and Graham down for a whole game and they got their points (Haden struggled in defending the huge TE)
- Missed PAT may have contributed to win when you think about it.
2Q: Leaders and Young Guys Step Up
- Nice play from the young RBs (West and Crowell)
- Tashon Gibson’s pick 6 INT was huge in the 2nd qtr.
- Manziel made his first appearance of the season for three brief plays. Good idea?
- Kruger has stepped it up this season.
- what else did we see good and bad in the Washington game?
3Q: Buckeyes take it out on Kent State
- OSU 66, Kent State 0
- After getting embarrassed by Va Tech (35-21 loss in prime time) at home the week before, the Buckeyes had an easy time of it against the Golden Flashes.
- JT Barrett ties OSU record with 6 TD passes (Kenny Guiton’s from 2013)
- What did we really learn from this game? Probably nothing.
- Young offensive line, inexperienced Receivers and QB, too.
- A defense that hasn’t shown they can really stop anybody in their 1st two games.
- DL Noah Spence suspended indefinitely for taking ecstasy (his second offense).
- Bye week. Then home to Cincinnati on 9/27
4Q: Early impressions of the NFL Season
- Who looks good early?
- Who is a disappointment?
- Which 2-0 teams are a mirage? (Buffalo? Houston?)
- Which 0-2 teams will bounce back? (Colts? Saints?)
- Off-the-field problems in Baltimore, Minnesota, Carolina, San Fran, Roger Goodell
