I'm so tired of this team's circus .. we deserve better as fans than to deal with it

What part of this is it you call a circus? Do you think the Browns should broadcast whether watson will play or not to our opponents before they have to?

The speculation that this is a power play by Watson, the speculation that the team is untruthful, players constantly being asked about the elephant in the room and not knowing how to respond, the fact that we signed such a risk to hundreds of millions guaranteed ... and he's lived WAY down to any expectation

So you are calling it a circus based on speculation. Thanks.

Jump on the 49ers -6.5!

PJ Walker and DTR currently drawing straws to see who has to play this Sunday.

Perception is what people make reality out to be based only upon speculation. Not what reality necessarily is.

Could you imagine if the 49'ers snatched him up off the practice squad before the Browns elevated him to the 53 man roster? saywhat

I believe that he is protected so they cannot snatch him. I also believe we would have the chance to elevate PJ before they can steal him. PJ could decide to leave however

It should make my blood boil, but at this point I would laugh so hard if Walker got claimed.


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.

I'm not sure what the rules are exactly. My understanding is that any team can poach any player on your practice squad at any time.

You can designate a certain number of players every week that can’t be poached. I’ll have to look it up and post a link

Deshaun Watson sits out practice again; P.J. Walker will start ahead of Dorian Thompson-Robinson vs. 49ers if Watson can’t go

Since DW is not practicing today it would seem he will not play.

I have had rotator cuff surgery on both shoulders. This has been described as a contusion to the rotator cuff.

I could not lift my elbow to rest it where the window is let down on a car door. You cannot throw. You cannot push the ball. Your arm is weak.

Hard to say what his shoulder is like. It is up to him and the doctors. If he plays and is hurting. It will show.

If he were healthy and Chubb was playing. This game would still be really hard to win.

I understand the feelings, but we don't deserve anything as far as this is concerned.

I think you've been around this team long enough to know they really don't deserve this much benefit of doubt.
It isn't the chess move people like to think it is, especially with our options at QB.
If an opponent prepares for Watson, they're covered because if Watson doesn't go, there's nothing to do but tee-off on whomever is in there for him.


Browns is the Browns

... there goes Joe Thomas, the best there ever was in this game.

I agree. Compare the Browns to the 49ers and you can see the difference in professionalism. The '9ers come in, playoff berth after playoff berth, Super Bowl appearance, etc. The '9ers have found a way to completely turn over their team again and again - from Harbaugh to Shanahan, and compete every year. They're starting Mr. Freaking Irrelevant at quarterback and are hands down the best team in the league, favorites over us in our own place. - Unreal.

Meanwhile, the idiots in Berea have had countless high draft picks, countless free agency signings, a 230 million dollar quarterback, and yet, we have zilch to show for it and our quarterback is most likely not even playing. Unreal.

Combine this nonsense with the fact that it may rain on Sunday, and you're looking at ticket prices comparable to what they were in late 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011.... etc. etc.

Circus is too nice of a word to describe this crap organization.

On the bright side, I've never seen the niners play before so I may take my daughter to the game on Sunday. We'll get a pair of decent seats for about 50 bucks total an hour before gametime - right when it's confirmed that Watson isn't playing. Sit there for a half, bask in the fact that the people around us paid, no joke, 5x what we paid to be there, and leave at halftime.

that is definitely a bright side. I always enjoy when the random NFC teams come to Cleveland .. it just doesn't happen too often when we host SF, GB, DAL, etc

I don't agree that the team is a "circus". The guy is hurt. The same people who made excuses for Baker's horrible play do his injury, act as if Watson is playing a game with the team. It never ends with the fans. Four games in and they are calling him a bust, it is laughable. I have come to the conclusion, that many would rather have a circus, just so they can continue their constant bashing of the team, coaches, players and owner. For God's sake just go root for somebody else.

That being said, this team just can't get a break. Loaded roster, and now injuries are taking a toll. With Bitonio hurting, I see the run game as a no go. If Watson don't play, it is going to be a blowout. IMO, the playoffs are a pipe dream.

I read you loud and clear.

If you are a sports fan. You will suffer. Most of the time it does not go your way.

Football is a mixed bag. You put together a roster. And then pray to stay healthy.

People get angry because at some point you feel like it has to go your way. Except it doesn't.

You could create a perfect roster and lose to injuries. You have to have some luck.

There still a lot of games to play. Nobody is running away with the division.
