Pretty sure they just had Butler in due to shortages at WR coupled with the fact that they weren't going to leave Cobb and Adams in for long vs Philly
Butler surprises me a bit, wasn't he just signed a week or so ago? I could see Hubbard coming, didn't think it would be this early.
Agree. I'd rather never see Tolzien in a game (unless it was because GB was up 21 with 2:00 to play), but he's better than Blanchard. Hundley was a
Hubbard was certainly a physical specimen but I guess he could never put it together.
Yeah, I remember TR being considered better than McFadden and the closest thing to AP. He was supposed to be a hard worker, a real workshorse without
Zool Division just got to 9 members with BZnDallas signing up. Striker at 10.
We should be good to go. Check you Division's thread in the
This is where 2011 1st round bust Sherrod bites them in the ass. If he had been even serviceable at LT Barclay wouldn't even sniff that position.
OK, I get why Barclay spent some time at LT. But they were playing Bulaga at RT, Barclay at LT. Curious.
I agree it makes much more sense to move Bulaga to LT, he is taller and better.
But if that is the case, why would they play Barclay so extensively
Because they don't want to risk their starting RT mopping up against 2nd & 3rd string chattel at LT?
What are you basing your Tolzien opinions on? The guy has had two good preseasons back-to-back. He probably deserved a shot last year. His arm strength
Damn... that sucks. Phil Taylor is solid, but the rest...
They might be playing Barclay there because he needs the reps. I wouldn't be surprised if Barclay plays both T positions Thursday night. You have to protect
I think you are right; Tolzien always makes himself hard to cut due to his insane study habits. Don't want that ability leading us in the game though.
Perhaps, but I think they're going with the guy with more experience in the offense. Just like they did last year when they went with Flynn even though
I don't see the connection. They still have to test and prepare the backup LT. Bak could get hurt at any time. If they play Barclay there Thursday,
Still think Blanchard had a more diverse skill set than Tolzien
I wonder if they really plan to keep Blue and Hunt around, or if they will be offering them injury settlements.
Edit: Blue and Hunt are on
I have no way of knowing. I'm just going by the Browns official roster. Sometimes linemen as they get older take off weight to maintain quickness. Raji
That's fair. Starks wasn't really a "tease", but he had that nice run to the superbowl and many of us expected more from him than we got after
