There is no level of sucking we haven't seen; in fact, I'm pretty sure we hold the patents on a few levels of sucking NOBODY had seen until the past few years.

Hoping Baker sits at least this week.

I think if Stefanski calls a ball control game, Case gets rid of the ball quick, we don't turn it over, and the defense does not allow wide open 70 yard bombs, we can eek this one out.

If Baker is not playing, and at least 90% against Cincinnati, we won't win that one...in fact we will lose regardless if the defense can't figure out how to cover top WRs.

I agree. I have to keep reminding myself that the important factor is actually NOT the injuries on offense, but more the defense (secondary) pulling its head out of its butt. Surgery may be required.

I think baker will be sitting this week again. Luckily we have a closer to full strength squad than last week


"First down inside the 10. A score here likely puts us in the Super Bowl. Landry is far to the left as Hooper settles into the slot. DPJ is flanked out wide to the right. Chubb and Hunt are split in the backfield as Baker takes the snap ... Here we go."

Even if chub is back I hope we limit his Carries. In fact I hope we start Johnson with chub playing sparingly. If the game is close or we are in the lead have chub get the bulk of his carries in the 4th quarter

Chubb had 140 yards in the playoff win last year. 80, and 60. I don't want to limit him at all, as the Browns aren't in any position to get a playoff berth other than just about sweeping all division games.

It sounds like Baker’s more confident in himself playing than Chubb is

That's phenomenal news. Steelers are always strong up front, so having the big boys back and healthy is arguably the biggest thing we can have go our way.

If Baker starts, he better make sure he stays in the pocket as much as he can and don't scramble unless absolutely necessary. Oh, and don't take any unnecessary hits and don't try to tackle a Defensive player.

I honestly can see a slight hesitation when he flips his hips and momentum to throw it. Not saying he cant play, but I’d make sure he looks as close to himself as possible

It's also very hard to tell anything by viewing a single throw which was hand selected to show the public.

Think playing baker is a mistake. He needs to sit atleast 2 games. Let that fracture heal

I got a strong feeling Baker will be playing...you can't keep him away from this game! We will see how he recovers for the Bengal game. Conklin and Wills are back lets see how our OL pools their effort so to keep Baker Clean the entire game. Chubb and Landry I think will be playing also.

I D has to dominate we should have better control of the LOS


bring in a BEAST of a TE and a DT then BPA in the draft....team gets healthy we should be good - Prayers for a positive surgery for Baker. Time for the draft again.

if the doctors say he's good to go, put him out there. not only does he give us a better chance than Case, but. we HAVE to keep pace with the bengals and ravens. losing to the steelers would be devastating.

having chubb and conklin back, and hopefully our two #1 receivers on the field is gonna help tremendously for bake. then after the season, take baker straight to the cleveland clinic and get the surgery done and over with.

Yeah if we lose this week our playoff chances plummet

Yep. A loss and the Browns are 0-1 in the division and sitting in the division basement. Additionally, the Benagls have an easy game this week and the Chiefs, whom the Browns are competing with for a WC spot have an easy game. Need the Titans to beat Indy and Chargers to beat the Colts as well.

A loss this week would certainly be a big blow to the playoff chances. A division title would be a pipe dream scenario.

If Baker is cleared medically, it's a no-brainer, tighten the harness and play him..

Don't the Bengals usually tear through October only to flame out spectacularly in November?

Lots of season left. Pitt was 'unbeatable' last season until they got beat.

That is all true.

However, the Bengals this year are not what the Steelers were last year.

Ben was going backwards and Burrow's is ascending. The Bengals are a good balanced team.

That does not mean that they are a real threat - yet. Long way to go as you said.

If they're cleared medically they should play.

I posted something similar to this in another forum but it will be deleted soon so I'll post this here.

There is a very common theme among most athletes. I only played through high school but the rule applied to me also. You want to play at any cost. You believe you can play no matter what. You believe you can overcome anything and that unless you simply can't make the line up you believe that no matter the injury it will not hurt your performance. That you can still perform through anything. Baker has said he will not play only if his injury does not hurt the team. And I'm quite certain he believes that. It's how the mind of an athlete and true competitor works.

But we all witnessed how he was playing after the injury. We all witnessed how it hampered his performance and his accuracy. It's something that an unbiased eye can see. It's tangible. And no matter what we've all witnessed, I'm sure Baker believes otherwise.

That's why it's up to not only the team doctors to make certain calls, but also up to the coaches. I haven't seen the X Rays. Nor would I know what I was actually looking at in regards to the severity of the injury if I actually had seen them. But what I do know is that this injury is negatively impacting his play on the field. I would hate to see this injury aggravated or become more severe just because the powers that be sit back and allow Baker to make this call.

Ward is becoming a problem. He can't play a full season. People dogged Greedy, but he has filled in and played very well. Hopefully Newsome will not become another Ward, where he is constantly injured.
