Welcome to the big play Re flog Show.
Today is Monday, November 9, 2020.
Big play, Dave alongside the coach.
Mr Chris MacNeil.
What's going on, brother? How are you? Kind of a slow news week, wasn't it, Dave? Yeah, not a Brown.
Nothing really going on in the world.
It's good to be here, Dave.
And congratulations on getting out of Twitter jail.
Well, thank you.
I was in and out of Twitter jail once again.
The 2016 Calves Championship Parade was a hit on Twitter and a little bit too much of a hit because they said that I was interfering with the election a little bit too much.
So Jack and his his goons put me in Twitter jail and I wasn't able to access my account for about four days, so that was fun.
Well, the guy who filled in for you while you were gone Mr Nick Padan.
How are you, sir? I'm good glad to be here.
And Chris, here's a little news nugget for you to start the show.
His history was made this week.
What? Tonight? Joe Flacco passed Joe Montana for the 20th on the NFL all time passing yards list.
Does that make him elite now? Elite Martin down is elite.
Is he the best quarterback on the Jets roster right now? Also a conversation to be had.
I say we bring Mary Kay if you're talking about the elite that I need to be had maybe another show in a different time.
In a different era, in a different universe, that is absolutely right.
And let's just move on from there, because tonight on the show, we're going to kick it off with some power rank Monday.
This has to be a type of counties we'd most like to visit.
Good work, Nick.
Southern County one will go Muskingum County to Summit County.
Really big in the Lake County.
Yeah, E currencies.
Underrated currency is way underrated.
Nobody should be sleeping on Guernsey.
I have a bone to pick with them.
Really? So that's where other producer Nick is from Portage County.
That's county, right? Yeah.
I spent two years in Portage County in two years.
Too many e happened to live in the County in the state.
That's best named, though.
Do you know what you know what the county I live in in Granville, Ohio, in licking county Looking? I've heard of like Oh, of course you have.
Licking county got Buckeye Lake out here.
You've got Granville.
You got NERC got Heath get all the big I mean, all the big cities air right here.
I mean, it's a swing county for the whole state.
So I think that other nick meant to put countries that we'd like to visit, so Oh, that's much less countries and I was all prepared with my list.
You guys want to rank counties or countries? I'm good with either.
Let's go countries already exhausted all by county talk.
I think that county would county up north.
Would County is pretty solid.
Alright, we're gonna power rank, countries, countries we'd like to visit were bored in the bye week.
Uh, then we'll get into our featured interview.
Bring it back to some Brown's action NFL and Browns writer Jeff Risdon of Real GM in the Browns wire will follow that up and break down this week's Cleveland headlines.
The Romeo Coronel revenge game, The Duke Johnson Revenge Game.
Looking forward to this one.
Nick Chubs Potential return bakers co vid precautions.
Talk about that.
The Buckeyes continue to roll.
Don't need to break down that game too much.
After that, we will give you the big plays of the week as we look at that Browns Texans game sponsored by my bookie.
We've got some good bets out there, and we'll give you our bold predictions for the week.
But let's kick it off with some power rank Monday, it's time.
Four power rank.
Monday eso Every four years, people all over social media claim they're going to leave the country if their president doesn't get voted in Esso.
We're not going to do that.
But we are gonna power rank top three countries, not counties that would most like to go ahead and visit.
I'll kick it off with my number three.
See, I don't think it should be. Just visit.
This is what do you want to live in a place that you have tow live? You gotta leave.
You gotta leave the US You've already sent out that Twitter photo of the 2016 calves.
Craig one too many times you've been in Twitter jail.
Now they're just kicking you out of the country.
Which country do you have to live? Where you going to? Okay, that might change my list slightly.
Number three Greece.
Better condition than it used to be in.
Um, yeah, I'll stick with Greece.
Beautiful place. I've never been.
The economy is a little thorny.
Yeah, it's It's improved over the last.
Like got that going decade.
Their bonds like the Cleveland Browns percent anymore.
Cleveland Browns of economies had patch.
You know, they're trying to come back.
They were pretty much gone for a while.
There on a bye week.
Yeah, off season champs.
Plenty of cap space.
Plenty of cap space for Greece, though.
I'm going with Botswana.
I'm everybody's number to Botswana.
I looked up African safaris.
I'd love to go on an African safari at some point in my life.
I'm hearing very, very good things about Botswana.
Yeah, if you have to live there though, you may have a problem.
Yeah, so far you've changed this. Let's change dramatically.
Yeah, I'm going to live in Botswana, Chris and my number one.
I'm going with Fiji.
Fiji can't beat Fiji, remember? And the water is free.
You know, a little bit different tone and tenor on this, but do you remember the Fiji house in Miami? I do remember the Fiji House.
Did you spend any time at the feet? Would not want to live in the Fiji house? No, you never did.
But you want a party there? I mean, it was fun to party, at least for a little while.
Oh, they get it to, you know, beating ally the pledges or whatever they do.
But if you're just uptown, just, uh, just party.
And it was It was a good time.
Yeah, the Fiji House uptown.
That was the first place I really partied at when I got to Miami was there.
So that's a friends up there.
Very cool. Yeah.
Do you wanna go to my list? Uh, where I'm gonna live.
Where you going? To move to Chris.
My number three.
I gotta fix my soundboard here thing.
You know, I should really get a soundboard.
Is that what it really? You should easier Australia.
Come on. I'm surprised it's not on your list.
How great would it be? The live in Australia? I mean, so money.
Just crazy animals out there.
And, you know, they had the movie back in the eighties. It was fantastic.
Probably way before.
That's not a knife, E. You played knife.
He's s**** E before to take off from The Simpsons is degrade on that one.
I thought you said Austria.
I thought you're going Arnold Schwarzenegger style.
No, no Australia.
Definitely a big difference there between Australia and a little bit. Yeah.
Yeah, a lot of themed restaurants for Australia.
Not so many for Austria noticed here in the States.
My number two Sweden, right? I mean, I've been to Ikea.
That's the closest I've gotten.
Really? That's that's sweetest, right? Yeah, I think so.
I think the actual country is about the same square footage.
Is is Nike s store.
But, you know, the meatballs, the women.
I mean, I'm all about the Scandinavian countries, so let's go.
Sweetened meatballs and women Put it on a T shirt.
Right? My number one.
I went here for my honeymoon, which didn't work out so didn't turn out so well like many of the things in my life day that didn't turn out so well.
But this was fun.
And that was skiing the Alps in Switzerland.
I would love to, like, retired to Switzerland and just ski the Alps because you literally we had a place that was at the bottom of the Matterhorn.
Right named hotel sugar was the name of it, and they don't have in Zermatt, they do not have any, um, any gas powered cars, They're all electric.
So there's these little cans And so if you need to go anywhere, that's what you take.
You take him to the train station now for skiing, you just walk downtown.
So you walk from you know, where your chile's at downtown to like Main Street.
You get to the end of Main Street and there's a lift.
You just get on the lift.
So, yeah, I skied the Matterhorn there in Switzerland.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
I could definitely live there.
It's really cool, you know? Clean water, nice air, a lot of skiing.
I went there years back but didn't go skiing.
All we did was eat like fondue.
Great job due to know. Yeah.
Yeah, that's a good list.
I think you your list is probably better than mine.
Well, you know Greece.
Yeah, Nick, what do you got? Top three places.
You wanna move Thio? Alright, for sure.
So, my number three, I have Japan on my list.
Um, really, anywhere in Asia.
But I actually have my cousins air in Japan right now.
And my little cousins, too.
So I definitely miss them, Would like to hang out with them, and I hear really good thing.
I'm a big, like, you know, Asian food and sushi.
And my cousins, when they come back, just rave about the sushi that's in Japan.
So I would I definitely have Japan is my number three.
I've heard that's a really cool place to live.
Yeah, they like it.
And I miss them.
I miss my little cousin.
So Japan's my mom is a sweet lives looking it.
All right, Well, turning my number two Mexico, as was you love my feud.
I love Mexican food as well.
Yes, but as was noted on this show a couple of months ago and almost ad nauseum, my spring break never came to fruition.
E was never able to go, so I feel like partying in Mexico.
It would just be really, like, otherworldly fun.
Especially now here in Cleveland, Ohio, Daylight savings time.
It's dark at 5 30.
It's gonna be cold here before we know it, even though we've been blessed with a couple nice days as of recent.
But in about a month here, we're gonna be dreaming for Mexico spring break, just like I was and it never got to happen.
Okay, Thio, Crestor.
You could be an ambassador for us down to Mexico because there there is that matter of the bill for the wall.
So you could be the guy to go down there, be like, by the way, I know that he's no longer in office, But you guys kind of owe us hand, deliver that bill, be the heavy for the United States.
I would bring like a like I put on a big check.
That's the only way todo acceptance exactly.
Except it's a bill.
Do they do big bills the same way as big checks? I'm sure somebody has had to have thought of that before.
For, like a huge invoice for this entire country of Mexico.
Yeah, I feel like that's not happening.
Okay, But my number one I gotta Italy.
Um, if you've ever read my last name before, the origin is probably very easy to determine.
And food? Yeah, the food, the sights, the pasta.
I thought your last name was just completely made up so you could just rip off part of my take.
No, actually, that's a coincidence.
And it's a mix of first take and pardon, The interruption and my last name.
He's practiced that he's practically e we'll be hearing from my lawyers.
I have much practices that Chris E now, Nick, where in Italy would you would Where would you move to Which city? That's a good question.
Is the homeland the homeland from what I'm told is actually Sicily Okay, so I guess I would like to check that out, but I don't know, as faras living, I really haven't researched it enough at all.
Um, I guess I'm good here in the US of a for right now, but yeah, Italy would be definitely be like That's my number one check out one day love it In turn, Noah, If you were to pick one country to go to, what would it be to live? You'd have to live there.
You just kicked out of the U. S.
Hawaii? That is not that Canada.
Canadian Canada drinking at 19.
Gambling in 19 Canada.
No, is a younger guy.
It doesn't like the taxes be to go to Canada.
Free healthcare there were here is not bad.
It's a go to moose jaw.
All right. And that is power and money. Let's move on.
Because it's time to talk to browns off of the bye week because we've got our guest in.
That's right, Chris.
We're not done yet.
We're five and three.
Let's keep it going.
We're bringing in Jeff Risdon, uh, looking forward to talking with him.
Brown's wire riel.
Gm, we will be back with Jeff.
Risen here in about 30 seconds.
Already on the line.
We've got NFL and draft writer for real, GM managing editor for the Browns wire and fellow Max in Aficionado Alumni from Oh, you mean Chris is safety school? Jeff Risdon Welcome to the Big Slavery Plug Show.
How are you, sir? It is great to be with you guys.
I'm sorry about your college choice, but we all make mistakes in life coming in hot. Yeah.
Come in a little hot here, Jeff.
So let's just let's start right there with that.
With Max in S o.
Obviously it is back.
That's what we want to talk about.
Chris and I both Miami alarms Nick Kent, State guy.
Any any prospects you see coming out of the Mac out of any of those schools or anywhere within action? Uh, this year in the universe, let's talk some back, baby.
You know, there's there's not a lot of guys who didn't get drafted.
I like buffaloes running back quite a bit.
Bowling Green has a tight end that used to be a wide receiver, and his name escapes me, but he's going to get drafted in the late round so you can play ball.
State actually has a couple of guys.
They got a running back.
They got a defensive back who's got some size Western Michigan, which is I live closest to their, uh, they have a guard Mike Caliendo who is a really good 14 year starter.
The stunner who played next to him is in the league right now, playing.
He'll get in there, but there's there's not a lot like I Look, I look at my Bobcats and rough is gonna be a rough year for us.
We're sort of in the rebuild mode.
And it would be great if our head coach figured out that, you know, when you put a running quarterback in and then you put a passing quarterback in, the defense is gonna figure out that Hey, the passing quarterbacks gonna throw with running quarterbacks gonna run.
I know Frank stolen is old, but, you know, he might wanna pick that one up.
No, No love for Dustin Crumb out there.
I'm not gonna I'm not gonna crap on him.
I haven't watched him this year yet.
I'm a little behind on it, but he'll get a shot.
He'll lose being a camp.
You like to hear that the camp can state that we're in a camp.
They go well done.
Not sure anyone from Akron, but we'll see.
So probably not probably not.
They didn't look so good for the last decade.
Uh, let's bring it back to Cem Cem.
Professional football click.
This is always an interesting dynamic because Cleveland fans have kind of a strained relationship with the local media.
Here in Cleveland, it seems like the biggest knock the reporters get here in Cleveland is their super negative.
Is that is that just us being overly protective of our Cleveland Browns? I I wanted to get your opinion on this because you're doing the Detroit Lions stuff.
You're doing the Cleveland Brown stuff, so you've got a little tough.
That's a tough congratulations about you.
Have a huge winners, by the way.
But what? What do you think it is with with the Cleveland media that that gets that negativity going? I do think that they, in general, the Cleveland media, tends to skew more negative than they need Thio, and it really shows up in the way that they ask questions in press conferences on de somebody.
I am officially credentialed by the Browns.
I haven't participated any events in quite some time, but it does seem like the loudest voices in the Cleveland media tend to be the most negative, and that's not true. In other markets.
I cover the Lions.
They tend first off the Lions, beat writers are fantastic.
They're great guys.
They tend to try to break it down is neutrally as possible, which is kind of tough when your team's terrible like we are right now.
Uh, I think it's tough right now because negativity sold in Cleveland for a long time.
Let's let's be honest, but I think back to when I was a kid growing up, I am a Cleveland guy.
I grew up in a million.
Uh, I remember how love of its Who actually knew I worked under him when he worked for The Lorraine Journal for a little bit When I was in high school, I was a stringer for him on guys like that that it wasn't looking like it.
If it was more about presenting it and letting you decide, and that's sort of the way that I try to do it.
Andi, I'll show for my Browns.
Where guys, for that, we try to do that as much as we can.
Um, if we don't like something, we're gonna let you know that we don't like it, but if they're doing something good, we're gonna let you know that it's good on.
There's a lot of people on, and I'll put a little bit of flashback on the fans here.
The fans sent to digest the negative and roll with it a lot more than they do with the positive.
That's actually more true in Detroit than it is in Cleveland, but it does skew that way on Gwen.
You're trying to get clicks and trying to sell.
I mean, I understand the angle.
I I won't necessarily criticizing them for for doing that, but it would be great if they could do the other side of it, too.
And you gotta five or three football team that the arrow is pointing way the hell up.
You better recognize that that you're not getting an O in 16 team to root for, with some of them openly did, And I had all of that.
**** me that Yeah, you know.
But I I do think that the tone of the questioning from the primary question ask er's in the press conferences is either ignorance or negative or in some cases, both on that that's very annoying from somebody who tries to do it a little bit differently than that.
Okay, we're gonna throw you a change up here.
This is something we've never done with a guest.
But we've got a little game that we play on this show.
And it was inspired by Mike Clevinger and Dan please sack because they said when they got into Covert Zack, Zack, Zack, Zack, His uncle was Dan.
His uncle was Dan, please, exactly.
Sack, you know, which we got down a couple of weeks ago out and playing this game.
But in any case, they went back to their apartment, allegedly started playing baseball cards, and the way they play baseball cards is they take a pack, they each take one.
They open it up and they pick out two dudes out of it.
And whoever gets the best two dudes wins.
Now. Tonight I went to the mall.
Okay, It's the first time I've been to a mall physically in a long time, but I went there specifically to get baseball cards.
I saw Jeff that they had football cards.
Not only did they have football cards, they had football cards from 1989 2 of those packs and they had one from 1990.
So you, myself and Dave are now going to play a game of cards.
Are you ready? Absolutely.
That's what you like.
Would you like the Fleer football 1990 or one of the two tops from 1989? You know what? Tops always bugged me in baseball cards because they put that nasty ass gun minutes.
They're gonna be Fleer there, Ugo.
You will hear the crunch.
And part of our tradition is I do eat the gum from the patch, so we will open yours first.
But we got a good Dennis, bro.
Okay, here we go.
Oh, man, this is This is tough right off the bat.
Anthony Mu knows.
Oh, backs it up with a jerry ball.
Oh, and then you pull out Mike Tomczak.
Remember where he went to school? Saw him many times.
Then Bobby a Burt Wow.
Sean Collins from the Falcons.
Tight end. You know where he went to school.
You know where he went to school? Pepper Johnson also played for the Browns.
John Wren stra And then finally, Warren Moon.
Whoa! Warren Moon! So who do you want, Jeff? Out of that deck is your two cards.
I'm assuming you're going to go with an Anthony Moon knows Anthony Munoz is the best left tackle not named Joe Thomas that I've ever seen.
So he goes there, got through Orlando Pace in there.
But he was He was He was still in high school.
Then, thankfully, uh, give me Warren Moon, Hall of Fame quarterback, the all time leading professional passer.
You can't go wrong there either.
That's not a bad deck there.
That's not that's not horrible.
Yeah, Guys in there.
Okay, Dave, now we're gonna go with your pack.
I don't even get to pick.
And there we go.
Oh, yeah, that is crunch.
I am in flavor country right now.
00 it's still crunching.
What do you got? Here we go.
Ready? You're going to start off with Herschel Walker? Alright, I'll go ahead and set that one aside.
You go. Jim McMahon.
Davis so good at this.
No, I might That might be done.
Shannon Sharpe's brother. Yep.
Oh, Vikings Action card.
There you go. Pass.
Doug Smith from the Rams.
Oh, here's a good one.
We got Northland High School baby.
Richard Dent, Defensive end, Chicago Bears.
Steven Baker, New York Giants wide receiver Charles Byuk Charles Buchanan from your Cleveland Browns.
Oh, competing ordinarily it's interesting.
Buffalo Bills Punter.
Ah, Jim Breach, Cincinnati Bengals kicker and Boomer A Siazon.
Boomer, you gotta boomer card eso You're going with Herschel Walker and number one, number two.
Number one, number two.
Yeah. First two cards off the board.
Oh, which was the second one off the board? It was Herschel.
And it was, uh Now I forget it was all thought.
It was a sharp Stirlingshire.
No, it was safety from the oil's big Jim McMahon.
Jim McMahon, You're gonna go Jimmy Mack Really? Over.
Yeah, Alright, Alright.
Keep it. Keep it fair.
That's the amazing thing about this gum is it just goes away.
You're going Don't actually chew.
It just disintegrates.
Yeah, Jeff, You having fun yet? Yeah, it's the first time we've ever done it with a gas.
All right, here we go.
Jeff, this is a 2.
Just letting you know, right? I hope you don't have anything else going tonight.
That's a keeper from the Bills.
Mark Jackson from the Denver Broncos.
Scott Sweeties from the Miami Dolphins.
Eric Thomas, cornerback from the Bangles.
Jo Jo Tansil from the Jets.
Thomas Sanders from the Bears.
Mike Singletary from the Bears.
And set that one aside with Bruce Smith, Eric Martin, Eric Martin from the Saints, Bill Brooks and the Colts.
Charles Haley. Wow.
From the Niners Super Bowl, Super Bowl X x I I.
That would be your 40 Niners beating the Bangles.
Remember that one? A cult action.
Here's a winner.
Here's a winner.
Ah, Colts action Photo with Chandler all alone running quarterback.
Apparently Heat Holahan.
John Taylor, San Francisco 40 Niners wide receiver, also with the Browns.
Later on in the front office.
Rufus Porter outside linebacker.
So I am going to go with Mike Singletary and Bruce Smith versus Dave, Jim McMahon in Herschel Walker and Jeff.
You've got Anthony Munoz and Warren Moon.
Nick, who is our winner tonight? Yeah.
So do you know any of these players? I dio Dio dio? Granted, they all played prior to my birth.
I do fancy myself much more of, ah, football guy than a baseball guy, but I just just for the record, Singletary as a player, not as a coach.
I get him as a player.
Nothing. Post e.
You get them as well. Make sure that's clear.
Knicks only seen the press conferences.
Chris, you don't get your first win this week.
I'm picking Jeff's team.
I'm going with kidney Be.
I mean, those are both Hall of Famers.
Yeah, Hall of Famers.
Yeah, Warren Moon's in the hall.
Anti minnows is the only bangle in the hall.
Well done, Jess.
Hey, can I tell Booth? Absolutely.
Eso Actually, I actually have two of them.
Eso When? When he was coaching the Shrine game one year, he got bored with coaching the players, so he got down at midfield while the practices going on around him and started doing calisthenics.
He did like the bicycle and push ups and everything, and people wonder like, What the hell is he doing? Hey, just got this interested in coaching.
So he just dropped worked out.
That tells you what kind of coaches about.
And then I'll go to his 40 Niners coaching tenure.
Um, if you if you're familiar with The Simpsons at all, there's an episode where Homer is trying to climb Mount Springfield and Rainier.
Wolf Castle is saucing him up with power sauce bars and yelling motivational tactics, slogans that make no sense at him.
A 40 Niners player told me that was exactly Mike Singletary's coaching style, just random, non sequitur positive slogans that meant nothing to anybody.
That was all he had in the coaching bag.
It doesn't surprise me in the least bit most intense guy ever, though.
Oh my God, those eyes! The NFL phenomenal football theme.
NFL films have just his eyes, man.
I mean, that had to just keep quarterbacks up a night.
Just those eyes by themselves, better, better Niners coach Singletary or Tomsula or hard traveling meat salesman.
Tomsula at least paved the way for Harbaugh.
So I guess he gets some credit for that.
Getting us back on track here.
That was our diversion for football cards.
And as always, we like shouting out Mike Clevinger and Zach, please sack for that one.
They definitely didn't get into any Dan, please. Sack.
Which is his uncle? Yeah, exactly.
Yeah, I'm sure this game originated somewhere and I feel like Dan had a hand in it.
But But, Jeff, the team that you cover is five and three, man.
And you also cover, You know, a lot of NFL draft stuff.
We opened the show talking about some action.
How weird is it for you that you're not, you know, doing mock drafts and scouting quarterbacks because our team is actually relevant in the playoff hunt.
It's It's really nice, you know, when you when you have a quarterback and I know there were people who will be debating whether the baker is the quarterback or not.
But suffice to say, he's the best quarterback the Browns have had in in eons um, not going into the draft and not eating a first round quarterback.
It just makes it.
It's so much more broad to cover.
I remember the first three years of Brown's wire was 16, 17 and 18, and every year is like, Okay, what quarterback? We're getting this year.
Well, well, what are we getting this year? And we want it getting one every year.
Andi and the ability to go out and scout other positions intently with an eye towards the Browns and whatever regime might be in charge.
Um, it's awesome, and and it feels like this Stefanski and Barry regime is going to stick around for a while, and it makes it so much easier to to scout because you have an idea of what they're looking for.
You haven't. You can sort of see their vision.
You also see, like what sort of players they want.
They want better athletes.
They want better football players.
They want, you know, guys that are ready to go now.
They want guys that have potential that they want to coax along.
Um, that's not something that that covering the Browns has has offered in quite some time.
I'm looking forward to man. It's kind of cool.
Yeah, there's a lot of fun question mark that a lot of fans have that myself has somebody that also likes to write and cover the team.
Is this defense right? You know, obviously, that's the big Achilles heel.
And one of the players that I wanted to ask you about was released today by the Atlanta Falcons in Tak McKinley.
Former first round pick, defensive end.
Where do you fall in that? Do you think that's a guy that the Cleveland Browns could be interested in? A t least worth talking to? Um, this is a guy who just got cut from one of the worst defense is in league history.
On has been a massive disappointment on it.
So it seems, based on a sweater, somewhat proud of being a disappointment, Uh, that xylitol concerning.
But if you If if he if he could bring him in on the cheap, see what he's got for eight games, why not? I mean, you're looking Olivier Vernon in all intensive purposes won't be back next year.
For whatever reason, they don't seem to want to give Port Augusta in a bigger opportunity to take that role.
Eso I don't think that that you're 2021.
Starting defensive end opposite Myles Garrett is on the roster right now.
Could it be McKinley? Probably not.
But if if he at least wants so listen, you should at least talk to him.
Right now, we're tied with the Colts, Raiders and Dolphins for the sixth or seventh seed in the A F C.
What chances you given Kevin Stefanski and the boys to make the playoffs for the first time since 2002.
And very Browns fashion to, you know, in the bye week we slipped out of that spot, which is just amazing on Lee.
The Browns would do something like that right in their off week.
What chance do you give the guys of making the playoffs? I think it's very good in part because you get the schedules coming out bold, coming out bold.
Oh, you put you down for very good.
I definitely go on the record.
This team will win at least nine games.
That should be enough to get in.
They're not gonna lose to Houston.
They're not losing the either New York team.
If you were, I was actually watching the the Jets game on earlier, and they might actually beat the Patriots tonight.
But that's that's a bad football team.
Uh, that's three wins right there, including one this coming week.
They're e love Romeo Crennel.
I will never say a bad thing about it, but there's a reason why he's the interim coach and won't be the head coach aside from the fact that he's really old.
But it's just not working their Their defense is so, so bad.
They as much as I'm gonna bag on and Anderson Day or this year, they have, like five of them on your team.
That's That's Houston's defense right now, so I'm not worried about that game.
I'm not worried about either New York game.
They'll win one other one, at least on.
I think that's good enough to get him in the Colts.
The Colts have a decent they're good, but remember, browns have that tie breaker that that wins gonna be critical.
I think I think the Raiders are kind of chugging along and Miami, I don't know what to make of Miami.
I mean they won the game last week.
They beat the Rams when two or three for e think they had eight first Alinsky through for 83 yards.
Obviously, he looked a lot better and they beat a good good Arizona team this week.
So you're not gonna write him off.
But of those four teams, Cleveland is certainly one of the best to.
I know that they lost the Raiders, but I will put them above them.
Do you give us any kind of a shot in the second half of the season to beat either the Steelers or the Ravens in a game in the games you're playing? Ravens? Yes, because I think they're slipping.
They lost Kallias Campbell today Hey, has the exact same injury that Wyatt Teller has missed with eso.
That's gonna be, you know, three or four weeks and hopefully, hopefully why it's back this week is a practicing.
That's a good sign.
Uh, they're they're funky because I think teams have a little bit of a book on Lamar Jackson, and he's still figuring out a little bit how toe turn that page and read a little bit better on DATs, not dissing him.
He's still great on if you watch the second half of the yesterday like, okay, he's still really good, but they are not the same team.
They're not as good as they were.
They are vulnerable.
They are specifically vulnerable to a power running team that can also do some play action.
What's Kevin fancies offense based on? There you go.
So I I do think that if the Browns defense shows up in that game, they could win that Pittsburgh man.
God, it would be great to beat them, but they're really good guys.
Dallas thought they had him yesterday, and I thought Dallas had I want I want to Garrett Gilbert, the one that's so badly for the A F.
And you know, all the Browns presses were backs of years past but just didn't happen for him.
J? Do you think he's played his last down with the Cleveland Browns? I don't think so.
I think this is one where the media noise so you talked a little bit about earlier, is much more intent on pushing that agenda than what he is or what the team is on.
Its weird Any time that I write anything from from Brown's Wire about O B J.
Like we contract where our clicks air from and like New York, just like surges like he's still wildly popular in New York.
They cannot let go of him.
I think that's where a lot of the consternation comes about it.
Look, if you listen to him, if you listen to the guys who know him well, you know Juice and some other guys, you listen to the coaching staff.
He he likes Cleveland Aziz.
Weird as that might sound, he really does seem to like it on and everything that I've heard about.
You don't have to sound so surprised when a player actually wants to play in Cleveland, you know, exactly, but that.
But that's the natural reaction like, how could a guy who's like you know, he's flamboyant? He goes to Monaco and does weird stuff.
He's got some very interesting tattoos, you know, he's very eccentric guy, but he seems to really like Cleveland on.
A lot of people have trouble accepting that.
The fact that he didn't like New York, but he likes Cleveland that that's a big problem for a lot of people in New York.
A lot of people who don't who want to push the story instead of the player eso I do think he'll be back.
I don't know how good he'll be coming back after the injury.
Uh, that's not not a pleasant injury to get.
He's been hurt a lot.
I don't know if you can expect him to be the same guy again, but he's still a really good football player.
He's under contract enough that I think he will at least start next year in Cleveland.
And then if it's not working out, I think a to this time next year when there's a trade deadline.
If if things were weird, if they've gone south, you know, then that's the first time I would see him being moved.
But I think he's gonna be here for a least 2021 to This is going back to the Texans real quick, so we're obviously heading towards heading towards playing them.
We've got, as you mentioned multiple.
Send a hose on that roster.
Baker has not thrown best ****ysis.
By the way, you're gonna see Oh, we're gonna use that all the time.
Baker's not thrown for a bunch of yards this year.
Do you think he could have a break out game off of the Buy? Or do you think he's gonna be sub 300 yet again? Three hundreds pushing it, That's that's more of the That's the Stefanski offense.
More than anything, I do think that Austin Hooper is gonna have a big game.
They So they have.
They have their version of Joe Schobert and Zach Cunningham, a guy who makes a crap ton of tackles like five yards off the line of scrimmage.
Andi is pretty good in coverage, except when the balls in the air, he never finds it.
That's kind of Zach Cunningham.
I think Austin Hooper, being back, will have a big game.
They can't cover both him and and Harrison Bryant.
And if David, a joke who decides to show up and play his one good game this month and then they won't be able to cover him, either.
You know, there are weapons there in place to take advantage of Houston that they do have a their Their front line is decent.
They still have J. J.
Watt. He's not what he used to be, but he's still.
He's still damp.
Whitney Mercilus is having a rotten year, but he's a good football player.
He's due to break out so that that that would be my concerns.
Their secondary is really bad.
They don't cover well and they don't tackle well.
So this is a game for a guy like Jarvis Landry who can make things happen after the catch on a crossing route.
He catches it in stride.
He gives a stiff arm, and all of a sudden the five yard passes 20 yards down the field.
That that's that's the kind of game that you're getting here.
Kareem Hunt come out of the backfield.
Could could catch 75 yards.
That's that's where the you're not gonna necessarily hit him down field.
That that's that's not the way to attack them.
But, you know, death by paper cut, man.
They're gonna bleed out quick.
You mentioned a joke.
He's one of the bigger mysteries for me on this team, and I know that he's got Rosenhaus is his agent.
They've been kind of going back and forth on some things.
What do you make of the whole situation with David? No joke.
Who should he station Ugo? Make up your mind, dude.
Oh, hey, Won't be back next year.
I'm very confident in saying that.
I'm kind of surprised that they didn't Mawr actively try to move him at the trade deadline because I don't think they really need him.
Harrison Brian has shown that he can play.
I mean, he can't block me, but he could go on catch.
And that's that's That's all you really need to do in this offense.
Yeah, and Stephan Carlson isn't a terrible number.
Three tight end. There are worse.
We've seen them.
I'll put you to Detroit for that.
Uh, there's e don't understand what he's trying to accomplish by being the way he is.
Um, I you know, hiring Rosenhaus was a weird move.
I get it because he's a Miami guy and Rosenhaus collects Miami guys.
That's just what he does.
I It was poorly timed.
It was just poorly executed on.
Rosenhaus is part in on the joke.
Who's part? I think. No joke.
Who is sort of unwittingly like locked in with Rosenhaus now.
He can't necessarily break out of that.
And because of that, his time in Cleveland's gonna come to it and it's disappointing because you do see, like Hey can do things that a lot of guys can't do on DWhite when it's useful.
I mean, he still could make spectacular place.
He made one of the Raiders Game one of the Bengals game, but they're so far in between and all the headaches with them, Um, and he's a high maintenance guy.
Odell Beckham's ah high maintenance guy Baker Mayfield High maintenance guy Myles Garrett is a fairly high maintenance guy, although not necessarily in a negative way.
But you get all the you get a lot of those and that that's tough to deal with.
And if you can part with one and it doesn't hurt you really much on the field, I think that's a smart move, so I would have tried to trade him already.
I think he'll be gone this offseason, though I I know that they have him under contract for another year, but that Z I think that's a bargaining chip to move up in the draft, you know well, so you're picking 22nd in the draft, which would be fantastic, although bad, bad number for quarterbacks, but you're not getting quarterback.
Let's say you're picking 22nd on.
Do you want to get to 15th to be like, Hey, I'll give you 22 in the joke? You We'll call it even on.
But that that's the type of thing that I think he's going to go in.
So last question before we get you out of here talking about the draft If you were Andrew Barry, you look at this.
This E think we're probably gonna go defense in the first pick overall, What position would you go with if you had your pick? So it kind of depends on Larry Ogunjobi.
He's a free agent if he goes, and I kind of think he's played his way out, you've got to get a defensive tackle because your run defense is atrocious.
Your designed to have no linebackers by design doesn't work.
If you're defensive line is an awesome Andi.
I don't think you're gonna take a first round linebacker, so I would go with the best defensive tackle that you could find based on where you're at.
If there's not one there, I'm confident that Grant Delta will be back on.
I think he's gonna be a good addition.
I think you can plug somebody in.
Um, hopefully shoulder of red wine materializes and and steps up.
You know, maybe maybe you find another free agents here, or there may be Davante.
Moffett finally gets a shot at, like to see what he could do it safety.
That's a critical position to, but I think you can wait a little bit on that.
But you've got tohave that the front four is so critical for what they're trying to do defensively and when.
When Ogunjobi has been good and like the week and a half that he was good this year.
Brown's defense was great.
When he's been just another guy, it's not working on.
They've they've got to get that spot.
And Sheldon Richardson, by the way, isn't getting any younger, either.
He's still pretty good, but they've got to get on impacted defensive tackle, and the draft is the best way to get that.
Jeff, this is This is awesome.
Uh, Chris, Chris will mail you your football cards.
I'm sure you want those.
You're winning team.
That's right. But we're working.
All of the viewers.
Find all of your your great content you're putting out there.
Yeah, sure, I run Brown's wire for U.
Today you can go to Brown's wired dot com The Browns wire on Twitter.
You can find me on Twitter at Jefferies and this RSD when pretty easy.
Thio Figure that one out.
I post everything that I do their real GM I doom or league wide, and that's where most of my draft stuff goes.
Uh, my editor there is bugging me for a mock draft.
I keep denying him.
I'll probably do that at some point soon, but at least have, like, prospects that I like coming up somewhere.
You know that on Ideo Im product, I do the 10 cents column every week.
I've done it every week from football.
Since 2004, I've been with the same company.
Therefore, this is my 17th season working for them, getting paid to write about football.
That's remarkable in this day and age, and I got I gotta thank them a lot for that.
So please go check it out is the 10 cents.
I also do a football picks column based on my desire to be a TV weatherman.
That's what? I went to college for my roommate.
Ironically enough, who was a communications major became a TV weatherman and I wound up writing football.
So I call it football meteorology.
That's where I get my weather fix into that Z.
Well, we greatly appreciate the time.
Everyone go check him out.
Go follow him on Twitter at Jeff Risen.
And we'd love to have you back on some time.
Anytime, guys. Thanks.
Thanks for having me High go browns.
Great stuff from Jeff Risen.
Round of applause, if you don't mind.
That's the first time we've had a guest on Dave Aries.
Come on and kicked our ass.
Feeding us and cards, man, That was That was wrong.
You know what I weigh? Had home field advantage.
He didn't even know about the game.
We've been playing this for a while.
Yeah, I was due for a loss.
Warren Moon, just a hedge it because I had Herschel Walker and I think I would have got the victory, but yeah, I would have given it Thio.
Oh, crucial, crucial strategic mistake's e.
Think about your judge in this game.
Yeah, that's true.
Headlines Okay, e, let's switch gears real quick to the Ohio State Buckeyes.
Yeah, I like these gears.
Noah was correct.
They did not cover, but they looked pretty good putting up for good call.
Noah said Ohio State was not gonna cover, but they're gonna win comfortably.
And that's exactly what happened.
Just feels look pretty good, though, uh, again, they've got their man.
He's just incredible, right? He is.
He I mean, he doesn't miss.
He's more touchdowns than the first time in his career.
Uh, biggest challenge is coming up next two weeks.
Who would have thought Maryland in Indiana circling those games on the schedule.
Big 10 photos You let off this show talking about? Well, Ohio State played Rutgers, and I was thinking to myself, When don't we play Rutgers like everybody on the schedule? You're right.
I mean, basically, Maryland in Indiana are the best teams in the big 10 right now. Yeah.
They lost again, right? Yeah.
They saw 10 states.
Horrible, Michigan. Horrible.
They lost again.
I mean, there's nobody who's any good on our schedule.
The only thing that's even close that you could make an argument for is like in Indiana.
Maybe in Maryland.
Do you think it's time for the Big 10 to kick Michigan out? Yes, yes.
Where would they go to the match? Could they go to the back way? Could keep him for basketball? Maybe.
Yeah, that They have to get rid of hardball after this mess, though.
Right? Like you have Thio.
There was talk about it last time around.
Well, I want to keep him around us, right? He's great.
He's turning that program around.
It's like a big old coal barge, just very slowly turning.
That's what it is.
It takes about 56 12 years.
You'll get it there.
Don't be bowl eligible every year.
Keep him around.
Chris, What do you think about this game? Maryland.
They've looked pretty decent.
I don't think much about this game day, you know.
I mean, I have expectations of the Buckeyes like most people.
Should the Buckeyes, they're just gonna impose their will.
And that's the way that they should handle the Big 10.
And I don't expect anything different I mean, is there anything that you've seen out of Justin Fields that makes you think that all of a sudden his foot's gonna come off the gas? I mean, this team is ready to roll.
They're gonna roll over Maryland, they're gonna roll over Indiana, they're gonna roll over Michigan, they're gonna roll over the rest of their schedule, and then we'll find out whether they're frauds or not. Once we get to the playoff.
Yeah, I think Justin Fields is probably gonna win the Heisman, too.
Especially if another another quarterback out there on Clemson stays on the sidelines.
High five and everyone.
He was negative, though. He was negative.
Let's switch gears real quick.
I want to go to you, Nick, to back to the Cleveland Browns.
Because Rapoport reported Nick Chubb is expected, uh, to practice.
He's practicing with our Cleveland Browns.
He's hopeful to play on Sunday.
We've watched the last few games without him running game.
Seems we've got Kareem Hunt.
You would think we would be okay.
It seems like we took a little bit more of a dip than than we kind of expected going into this.
How? How big of news is this? Yeah.
Listen, So I think as a fan base.
And I'm glad you asked me this day because I wanted to talk about this tonight, I think, as a fan base and as teachers.
Yeah, something off my chest.
Right, Chris, um, that we underestimated How bad? The Chubb and Austin Hooper and Wyatt Teller.
Those three guys all at once being out because, like, think back to Cleveland Browns passed.
Right? So you're playing the Raiders who are a team in the running for the wild card.
They're not out of this world.
Good, but their playoff good.
And you're without your starting right guard your without your tight end one.
And without out, you're running back one in old Cleveland Browns days, we would have been like Okay, well, that's a loss.
What? What games around at four o'clock, what was the Sunday night game? But now the Browns, we hold to a little bit higher standard, which is a good thing, but as a bad thing, we look bad without those guys.
And that just shows that this is very big news.
David, it's gonna be good toe.
Have nick job back, but also tohave Wyatt Teller.
One thing that they do with Wyatt Teller that you have a little bit harder of a time doing with Chris Hubbard is just a good old fashioned pulling of the guards.
They're able to do it with plutonium because he's a little bit more mobile.
But Chris Hubbard is a tackle that's a guard tackle.
He's not his mobile.
He's not as agile.
So I look forward to seeing why a teller be able to be pulled and creates, um, or running alleys for chav and Hunt and Hunt.
Quite frankly, this season has been better with Nick Job on the field.
I don't think anybody would have really anticipated that, because it was a split staff scenario.
But Hunt is better in the passing game, and he does different things when Chubb is on the field for the Browns.
Too bad none of those players returning to play defense.
Yeah, that's that's what we might get back to shootout status, which would I would love.
That would be good.
Yeah, with you there.
You think so? Really, We'll get into that in the bets, but all right.
Okay, s So let's talk.
Myles Garrett because he's supposed to be back healthy this week after sitting out portions of that Raiders game.
Think you were just talking about clearly, he wasn't himself.
You saw him on the sideline.
Hey, Didn't have a strip sack, wasn't himself.
You gotta cut him.
You missed our chance.
Just not working.
So, Christie, I mean, do you think having him in 100% more is more valuable than kind of adding a defensive player via trade would have been, You know, I wonder when we're going to see him at 100%.
You know, it's kind of scary to think that he hasn't been 100% for a while.
You know, he's been sitting out a lot of plays here, a zoo of late and hopefully hopefully we're gonna get him back there because, man, he's just such a force.
Just such a force.
A game changer playmaker.
However you wanna phrase it, I I mean, he is the guy on defense who is making the play that changes the game.
And he's really the only player on defense is doing that when they're gouging us.
Hey can change that wave.
So we need him back a 100%.
You know, whether it's bigger or not than adding a defensive player.
We all know that he's the impact player that he is.
He's one of the one of, if not the biggest, um, players.
I mean, defensively, game changers in the game today, there's no doubt about it.
Yeah, John on Twitter says him, and 80% is better than most.
That 100% couldn't agree more with you there on Jared, Jared says Chub.
Make make a great linebacker, Nick.
What do you think? Dual little Chris Gamble style.
I know I don't like I know.
No Chub needs to be a running back.
I don't want to see him getting trucked over by Duke Johnson in the return game or anything like that.
So I will keep my Nick Chubb in both of his knees healthy on the sideline when the defense is on the field.
But for miles, I hope to have him back in 100 for that Ravens game.
They lost their right tackle for the season, Ronnie Stanley, you know, and he just signed a massive extension.
That's a huge piece of who the Baltimore Ravens are.
So to lose the right tackle swing Myles Garrett over to that side for the Baltimore game.
And just like Jeff said, there's a blueprint to beat Baltimore.
So let's let's go back, you know, fast forward.
A few days here to Houston, we We had the co vid protocols this week with Baker Mayfield.
We're also on, you know, the the bye Week, Nick.
How do you think we're gonna gel heading back into this game with a week off of NFL football? Yeah, you know, that's that's tough.
Sometimes sometimes you get the bye week rust, you know, in the n b A.
It's more like All Star Game rust.
You see that? Sometimes I think it will be okay as long as Baker does get back to practice on Wednesday.
It'll be fine throughout this entire season.
As faras practice goes, the Browns have had a CVS receipt of an injury report every day of practice. You know, Jarvis.
They've kept limited for his hip, and he had surgery this offseason.
Odell, before the A C L injury was limited, You know, throughout times the offensive line is limited at times so there's been constant shuffling pieces at weeks at a time for this Cleveland Browns team, as is so I think, just simply getting the pieces back and on the field and talent alone.
We're more talented than the Houston Texans.
I think that's gonna prevail.
Any rust or anything that might be on this team for the bye week.
Chris, any chance we lose to Romeo Cornell? Oh, man, that was just I just thought of that.
I mean, just the fact that it's got to be Romeo.
That's the only thing that kind of scares me in the back of my mind.
Just a Z, the good Cleveland fan that I am thinking, Oh, man, that guy.
It's just that would be the only thing that scares me about the Texans.
There's absolutely no reason that we shouldn't roll over them.
Um, but just you get that karma that Cleveland karma, you know how it is or it's like, Oh, God, we're never gonna hear the end of it if Romeo comes back and beats us, you know? But I'm already picturing sound clips of Duke Johnson what he's going to say if he beats us like that's how that's how messed up we are crashing.
Remember him talking about Who's Braylon Edwards? Kids running around the shoes off good times back then.
And those those were fun.
Brown's teams, weren't they? Yeah.
So looking forward to the schedule, we've got Coronel Houston.
Freddie Kitchens in New York.
Greg Williams in New York.
Uh, we were scheduled to play Mike Patton before that preseason game got canceled.
Ah, lot of these old coaches coming back.
Where would you rank Romeo Coronel? Out of all the coaches that we've had, is he Is he a top 10? I'd rank him as one of them.
I guess he'd be near the top of the coaches that we've had since we've been back, right? Yeah.
I mean, who is the best? Is Butch the best you take? Stefanski Galaxies are current. Yeah.
I mean, boots had a pretty good run, and then I never minded Patton.
I thought he could have been all right if Johnny Manziel wasn't around.
I se e I say it the other way.
And Mike Patton sabotage Johnny for the weekly flip of John E v.
Hoyer, Hoyer v Johnny and drove Johnny up a wall and made him go to Vegas.
Oh yeah, petting was the reason that Johnny went off the walls.
Definitely, that's that's my theory, and I'm sticking to it.

You and Chris well done.
5 point favorites over the two and five acceptance disrespect.
Dave, that is Disrespect, Christina.
Little Little Vegas, 2.
5 and we're at home.
Where were you? Where would you raise 2.
5 from your memory? Where would you have thought this game would be? Point spread? I think I think it a co vid world where you don't have the fans.
5 is the new field goal.
Do you think it's a pickle? So this is a pickup game is what? They're basically because the Browns were getting their field goal at home, I would have said, This is a 4.
5 point game somewhere in that range.
Maybe give me a 4.
5, give me a little bit of a hook, make people think about it.
You go over that field goal.
That's what I'm thinking, Dave, you know? So I guess this isn't, ah, huge disrespected that way.
But, you know, one of the hook on top of that.
That's a big difference from three or 2.
5 here in this point in this case, so I don't know.
The Browns got have to show it on Sunday.
Yeah, Texans two and 61 of their wins, two point win over Jacksonville Browns have only played in 21 score games this season, both against the Bangles.
So haven't been all that close salt comparatively over under in this one.
Wow, They're going up and up and up and up every single week.
Do the Browns keep getting these high over unders? Because Vegas is respecting the offense, Do you think, or is it more our defense? Or maybe both? I think in this game there, Yeah, it's a mix of both their respecting our offense, disrespecting our defense, respecting Houston's offense and disrespecting their defense as well.
Because perfect offense.
Houston's offense is really good, too, Like we haven't talked about them at all.
They have Will Fuller, who they neglected to trade at the deadline despite him being in talks to be sent to Green Bay with the Packers.
They have Brandon Cooks who went off this week, David Johnson and Duke Johnson in the backfield.
I believe David Johnson is still in concussion protocol, so he'll need to clear but still decent run game.
They've built a solid, you know, offensive line.
Finally, it seems around DeShaun Watson, so their offense is really good and so is ours.
I'm gonna take the over in this one, and I teased it in our last segment and headlines.
I'm predicting another Brown's shootout, Dave, because why not.
That's how they've had to win their game so far this season.
And if Myles Garrett truly isn't, you know, 100% healthy despite that m r I coming back clean, I think Baker and Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt are gonna have to do it again.
I mean, both of these teams, us and the Texans both give up 30 points a game.
That's what we average.
So simple Math tells you that 60.
I'm just gonna be a the n b a Comes to Cleveland.
All three defense.
Baker, bring back the hurry up offense, you know, move the pocket.
It could be a lot of fun to watch on Sunday.
Tristan Thompson chucking up threes.
Andre Drummond checking up threes.
I was because I was leaving halfway through the season.
The good times, man.
I was looking up some stats with the Browns earlier today.
I was looking at Q B r for Baker.
Where where do you think he is without looking? So you know, 2018 Rookie year played really, really well, 2019.
1 of the worst quarterbacks out there.
Where do you think comparatively to those two years? His Q b r is this year already.
Know this, So I'm gonna swing.
Answer is, uh, uh the highest of the three years.
No, but it's it's close.
It's He's pretty, pretty much playing like he did his rookie year, where we all love channels.
Yeah, I mean, it is a little different story, but he's not throwing it nearly as much, But I thought that was kind of interesting.
He's getting a lot of heat this year, but his numbers air kind of playing out to be a lot like that year. Everyone loved him.
Yeah, 15 touchdowns halfway through.
Uh, can't really complain about that as long as he keeps those picks down, You know, had some struggles with it so far this season.
But keep those interception down, keep throwing touchdowns.
And some of that hate is gonna go away really quick for Baker.
Also, heat that q B r battle.
He's got Lamar Jackson beat out guys.
Alright, so cue Br probably doesn't mean a whole lot, although it doesn't Yeah, Lamar arm has been a horrible He's my fantasy quarterback.
That is really a pity.
It's a smile on my face.
We talked about this with Jeff.
They gave up 304 passing yards to some sixth round rookie from Jacksonville. Jake Luton.
There's a couple couple weeks ago.
We thought maybe Baker is gonna his 1st 300 yard game.
Chris, do you think he can get to it in this game or you think we're gonna go run heavy? Yeah, I think the weather is the weather going to be dice.
There's a 50% chance of rain.
Okay, but there's a 50% chance of it being nice, then.
Yeah, let's have a look way.
Our eternal optimist, not a Twitter jail.
I mean, mid November in Cleveland, off the lakefront.
This is about as good as it gets.
I think there's a 50% chance of that and I will take that.
And if that happens, then Baker is gonna have himself in afternoon, and the Browns are going to cope.
So yes, I think Baker is gonna have a fantastic week I think it's gonna be one of those weeks where everybody who's in the Baker camp is going to say, See, he is our franchise quarterback.
You people are all idiots and everybody who doesn't like Baker is gonna say, Yeah, but it was Houston, but it was very true.
Texans defense Has Onley forced five turnovers in eight games this season.
They got two picks, three fumbles.
Nick, here's the over under.
Will the Browns offense have a turnover? One turnover.
So if you don't have a turnover, you win this game.
So I'm going to say no, I'm going to say a clean game and I just talked about the Baker interceptions.
This is a perfect game to pad that.
We heard it from Jeff.
They have five send a hose on their roster.
There is no reason to be throwing into double coverage this game at all.
And and like he said as well, Baker shouldn't be needing to make those kind of throws.
You know, cross routes in the middle of the field.
Toe Landry, the job who we learned could catch, you know, in seasons past, who would have known coming out of Georgia and to Kareem Hunt.
That's the recipe toe win, you know, on Sunday.
So I'm going to say no, no turnovers by the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.
Even with that 50% chance of no rain, No kidding.
All right, Chris.
One more for you over under.
Brown's and Texans have missed five kicks combined this season.
Will there be a missed field goal or extra point on Sunday? How God, Yes, but it's gonna be missed by Houston.
We're used to now kicking in this wind, right? Right way have our kicker.
He's been around long enough to know he's taking some notes.
Probably looked at some old film of Phil Dawson.
He now knows which flag toe look at which flags not to look at when he's in the stadium, which they made big deal about in the last telecast.
Actually, she is getting a little overdone.
It was it was really cool, and it still is cool, but it's getting a little overdone, so he knows which flagged the look at.
So I don't think we're gonna miss a kick, but the Texans will have no idea about that.
They won't know anything.
They'll be looking at all the flags which will be looking at everything else.
They're gonna miss, like, three cakes.
So we're going. We're going. That's right.
They should have been watching one o'clock games on CBS with Iron Eagle trying to Spero.
Let's do some bold predictions.
Wait, so I'm gonna go quick.
I'm gonna go Baker Mayfield over 325 yards this week like it's gonna happen.
Hey, guys, you know what's this week? The master, The Masters break out the Green Jackets, brother, it is the Masters Week.
So I'm gonna give you my prediction for who's gonna win the Masters this week.
Go ahead and go right to Vegas.
Put all your money down on Jason Day from Dublin, Ohio, Jason Day, whose wife was famously truck by LeBron James at a Cavs game sitting courtside.
He met that gal in Dublin, Ohio, and that's why he makes his home there.
Though I like his chances.
I think he's about middle of the pack.
In terms of odds, you have to go to my bookie dot com to check that out.
But I think he's about middle of the pack.
Dave and I like his chances.
Why not? He's played there.
Please played well at Augusta before and I could see him kind of coming out of the pack toe lead the Masters on Sunday and get that is a bold prediction.
I like that you don't You don't think the Tiger, Chris that has any chance at all? We're not going to be able to not going that bold.
Nothin for the December 30th birthday.
I hate Tiger with a passion.
You would not do anything.
Really? Why do you hate your micro story, right? No.
Hey, snubbed me.
Back in 1996 I was getting a scholarship from one Jack Nicholas at Muirfield for my academic as well as my golfing accomplishments from the good people at Columbus Dispatch charities.
And Jack Nicklaus was given that award to me, and I was kind of off to the side.
And here a young tiger Woods was coming out of the crowd.
There was no one else around me and I said, Hey, Tiger, he wouldn't even look up.
He walked right past me.
He basically almost hit me out of the way with his shoulder on from that moment on, before he had want anything, I said, I know he's the next whatever.
I know he's gonna be fantastic, but I'm gonna hate him for life.
And thus far, I have held to my promise I made to myself of hating Tiger Woods for life.
That was like your ah Cramer Newman Keith Hernandez story.
I thought, you know, you're gonna say Tiger spit on you.
It was basically like that.
If he could have spit on me, he would have e He just had that scalp, man.
And I was just a kid.
You know what, 16, 17 or whatever else? And I was like, Hey, it's Tiger Woods.
Hey, Tiger And man, he just plowed right past me.
I'm sure there was a C C list porn star, right? That's in the future.
That's very true.
That's very true.
If I would have long hair and been attractive, alright.
My bold prediction.
Tiger went not just getting my bold Prediction.
Duke Johnson revenge game do crushes for over 100 yards in Houston, Texans lost Oh, wow.
Okay, I like half. That's fine.
100 yards for Duke Johnson.
Really 100 yards for Duke there without David Johnson ruled out due to a concussion.
So Duke Johnson, here's your opportunity, my friend.
And it would be a nice touch, especially if he's like, not carving.
It wouldn't be a nice touch.
If he's not carving us up, it would be cool to hear a little touch.
All right, where's the nice touch for him? For Romeo Boy? But I like I like to Johnson.
I like It's like ab like I want to see the other team do well, but I still win.
No, no, I wanna know.
I would just want everybody to have fun, because that's what games are about.
I want the Browns to win 51 to nothing, but Johnson has 200 yards rushing, 200 yards rushing fumbles at the one, every single.
Like Christian McCoy.
This was way before your time.
That's what that's how Christian Nicoise, his career like ended, was against the Browns and he just killed us all game.
But he had, like three fumbles on the goal line and that that season was like his last season.
That's that's gonna be Duke Johnson on Sunday.
