I think it's gonna be a great one today.
Obviously, every game from here on out is a, um, win or go home situation for the Browns.
You're not gonna make the playoffs and detonate you.
It's very possible you won't even make the playoffs or 97 But even if they went out, the best they could get to was 97.
At this point, Um, it's gonna be tough.
It's gonna be tough to beat this.
This Cardinals team who's very good, but it's the one that's really gonna be tough is next week against the Ravens.
Um, again, every situation from here on out is a winner.
Go home for the Cleveland Browns, and it's gonna make for a very interesting last three games.
A report this morning said that the Cleveland Browns do plan on sticking with Freddie Kitchens next year just in, unless something absolutely ridiculous happens unless mend of losing out and going 79.
Uh, that would be that'd be worse than last year.
We wouldn't have gotten any better, even though are rostered drastically improved.
So I think that I think that really, if you're if you're the Browns if you're this roster, If you're this Freddie Kitchens you wanna win out, you wanna win out.
You want to prove that you still are, that you're able to compete and you're going to get better as the years go on and as the seasons go on.
But for me as a fan is somebody who loves the Browns dearly.
Um, I think that I don't think that Freddie Kitchens is the guy.
If I'm being blunt enough, if I'm being completely honest, I don't believe that he is the guy that we thought he was in the beginning of the season.
I think that any any season that we continue with Freddie Kitchens is a waste, and we don't have a lot of time to waste in this championship Super Bowl window that we that we're currently in living or not.
I feel that we are in a in a window to compete, and we are in a window to prove that we can win a Super Bowl and to prove that we can be a great team.
We have that window right now with this roster.
That's where we're at every single season that Freddie Kitchens is our head coach, in my opinion, is the season that is wasted.
And we don't have many seasons to wait.
Starving Slander is not gonna be here much longer.
Odell Beckham is not gonna be here.
Passes contract if even past this season.
Obviously, we hope he is.
And I believe that the reports were false about Odell wanting out.
But I still you never know in the NFL.
Karim Hunt most likely will not be back here next season, especially if we keep Odell Beckham next year.
Um, and got Baker.
Mayfield Miles Gear is still in the rookie contracts.
Obviously, you're gonna extend them Denzel Wards filling a rookie contract as well.
So I'm just trying to explain here that our championship Super Bowl contending window is not very huge.
So if we're going to prove that we can compete, we have to do that.
And personally again, my personal opinion.
If Freddie Kitchens is our head coach, we're not going to compete.
We're going to be a team that's always a fringe team.
We're gonna be a team that's 97 10 68 and eight, a team that's almost there but never gets there.
And that scares me.
I hate that feeling, But it's the same thing that happened with the Cleveland Indians.
Any Cleveland Indians fans out there? Uh, court Kluver just got traded this morning.
We were always a French team, obviously one game away from winning World Siris.
But then, after that, we just make the playoffs and were either first or second round exit.
I don't I do not want there for the Browns and personally as a ZAY.
See Freddie Kitchens leading this team.
That's what I see is a first or second round exit.
If we even ever make the playoffs.
And that scares me.
That scares me very, very much.
Um, but I do want to I want to do a little pregame here.
You got the past two. Heisman.
Well, now, after yesterday in the past three Heisman winners or two of the past three.
Heisman winner Sorry trying to figure out a way word that two of the past three Heisman winners coming up and facing today.
Cuyler, Murray and Baker Mayfield to very good quarterbacks to come out of Oklahoma, I think.
I personally didn't like him coming into this draft.
I think that reaching for him at the number one pick was a little rough.
But if he's the quarterback of the future for the years on the Cardinals, then then then you didn't reach same thing with the Browns.
A lot of people thought that we could have drafted sake, want one and still had Baker four.
But if Baker was our guy, drafting him at number one overall is not a reach.
If Kyla Marie ends up being a great quarterback, not gonna be talking about how the Cardinals reach for him at number one.
Same goes for Baker Mayfield.
So I think that this this game, this match is going to be a lot of fun because both quarterbacks have received a lot of criticism this year.
Baker Mayfield A lot more than Cuyler Murray Just because there's a lot of expectations for Baker, Mayfield.
This Browns offense coming into this season, you got you received Odell Beckham Jr in the trade from New York.
You signed Karim Hunt.
Mitch Chubb just came off a great season and is now continuing, continuing to have another great season, really, a Pro Bowl season, all pro season.
I mean, this offense is stellar, but Baker Mayfield in Cuyler, Murray or two guys that have looked somewhat inconsistent all year.
So now they're going up against each other.
This is going to be a very fun game because I think it will be a I think it'll be an offensive matchup.
I think that you're gonna see two teams with subpar offenses go at it.
Um, I'm not saying that the Browns.
I'm saying the Browns offense has been sub part of the season, but we obviously have the talent to be better than that.
The Cardinals are still kind of putting pieces together.
You got Larry Fitzgerald, who's aging and is really looking to retire within the next few years.
David Johnson's guy that used to be very good, but but has obviously had his pitfalls had his injuries these past few years.
But you never know what I think that both offenses were going to come out hot.
I think it's gonna be a fairy.
Very, very fun game tow.
Watch A lot of people like defense of matchups.
I'm one of those guys.
I like seeing a good defensive matchup, but I also like seeing some offensive firepower So I'm hoping that the Browns Odell Beckham, Jarvis Landry, Karim Hunt, Nick Chubb Um, I hope they can all get it.
They can all get it down today.
It's gonna be fun.
It's gonna be a fun game, But I do.
I do want to talk.
Speaking of the two Heisman quarterbacks Baker Mayfield high with Murray, I do want to talk about last night's Heisman Heisman.
What would you call a Heisman Show? Heisman presentation Eyes with his Heisman ceremony.
There you go last night.
Yet Joe Borough.
Justin Fields Chase Young in jail when hurts.
Oh, as as Heisman finalists last night and Joe Borough, obviously one.
He is very well deserved.
Who's he played an insane season.
He played very, very, very well, Um, but at the same time, I'm not.
I'm not super happy about how Three.
How how Two through four, um, ended up as faras votes and how ah, how that really ended.
I think that Joe Borough, obviously decided, deserved to be number one, but Jalen hurts coming into was very upsetting just because Justin Fields and Chase Young dominated both sides of the ball all year long, the plate very, very well.
All season long.
Justin Fields and Jalen Hurts.
Numbers were comparable.
They were very, very good, especially for Justin Fields having his first season wherever even started a game in college.
He only threw one pick through 40 touchdowns.
This while this Ohio State Buckeyes.
The offense was a juggernaut throughout the season, and they played very, very well.
Um so to have Justin Fields coming at three and then cheats young to er it for I mean, was was ridiculous.
I mean, I believe that he came in it for just because of of the suspension.
I think that if he would have played every single game, and I believe that he would have I had a chance if not broken the sack record for the Double A.
And, uh, I think I think that he could have he would have been easily number two in the in the in.
The final is the is the finalists rank up.
Um, but again seem jamon hurts.
Just finished second was very upsetting to me.
Uh, Oklahoma's not looks stellar this year.
Um, granted, they are top five team.
They've had quite a few games when I was very, very, very close.
They do have a loss on the schedule.
Buckeyes are undefeated Justin Fields again was one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL.
ERT Wow in the N C.
I cannot speak today. Can't think straight.
Um, he's one of the, uh, he was one of best quarterbacks.
Chase Young was the best player in the N.
W, and you can quote me on that one.
Chase Young was the best player in the hole in all of college this year.
So have him finish it for was ridiculous.
That can give us because he was a defensive player.
Um, if for anybody who doesn't know on Lee won defensive player has won the Heisman ever.
And that was Charles Woodson from Michigan.
Um, I did. I was.
I was scrolling through Twitter last night.
Is it was going Azeri thing was going on, and, um, and I saw an interesting tweet.
It said if Joe Burro would have had the same stats would have had the same would have played exactly the same, but at Ohio State he wouldn't have won the Heisman and this person who tweeted this, he He also believes that Joe Borough definitely deserved the award.
He played very well and he deserved it more than anybody else.
I need the other three guys, which that's exactly how I feel.
But it's also the truth.
If you look at it, the bias for the SEC and the bias against Ohio State is absolutely ridiculous.
Um, I I honestly believe that if Ohio State would have lost to Wisconsin, if I stay, would have lost even only one game this year.
Even only look dominant all season.
I believe that they would have been left out just because it feels like the committee and a lot of people that are that are associated with the NC Double A have extreme bias against the Buckeyes, and it's a little frustrating.
I don't know if anybody any other Buckeyes fans noticed this.
I don't know if anybody really pays attention that much, but it just feels like to have a player like Jamon hurts.
Finish over J one Hurts wasn't even, in my opinion, a top five quarterback in college this year.
I think that you got to go.
Joe Burrow and Justin feels, obviously is the top two, but he didn't He didn't lead Oklahoma in the in the way the Justine Fielding Chase Young did.
He wasn't He didn't play as well as Justin Fields and Chase Young did.
He wasn't as valuable to his team as Justin Fields and Chase Young work without Justin Fields and Chase Young.
This buck, I seem, isn't undefeated without Justin Fields and Chase Young.
This Buckeyes team is probably isn't even in the top 10.
If we're all being honest with ourselves, who's who would have been Ohio State's quarterback? We don't even know if Trace Young walks in on our defense.
This would not be the best defense in the whole NC Double A, and that's no offense to any other, any other player on that Buckeyes defense.
But, man, um, it's just frustrating.
See, are my two guys.
Might you Buckeyes just short handed there through, um, Heisman Ceremony last night? Um, but again, Joe Borough obviously deserve the award more than anybody else.
Just it was a little frustrating that Jalen Hurts ended up getting second place when, clearly, in my opinion, he deserved forth.
Uh, there was plenty of guys that I felt like should have been, you know, it been in over him, Um, including Jonathan Taylor out of Wisconsin.
Um, it's frustrating.
I'm gonna hire State fan.
100% always will be.
Always have been.
But I'm frustrated for Jonathan Taylor, a guy who's led the way every single season he's played in rushing.
He's led them in rushing yards.
He's played his butt off every single season, and he's been by far the best running back every single year in college.
Except for maybe this year.
Dobbins gave him a little bit of, Ah, give him a little bit of a fight, but and he was never, ever, ever a finalist for the Heisman Award.
That's a little ridiculous.
Um, I think that Oh, it's just it's crazy.
I think that Jim and hurts, really, even though he played very well this year.
There's plenty of guys that deserve it more than him.
But I'm going to hop back over to the Browns in this final minute, and I'm going to give you my predictions.
Um, just to kind of, ah, give you guys an idea of how I feel this game's gonna go I think that again it will be an offensive match up.
It'll be fireworks all over the field.
I'm gonna go browns 35 Cardinals 24 Um, I think that Odell Beckham has a good game today.
He gets another touchdown, gets third of the season.
I believe that Odell Beckham will play very, very well today.
Um, I'm not saying that this offense is going to get it, all right.
I'm not saying they're gonna get back on track.
I'm not saying that this is going to be the future, but I think that they're going to take a step towards that today.
And Odell Beckham will have a good game.
I think Jarvis Lanes will have a touchdown himself.
I think Nick Trouble have another 100 yard rushing game? Um, I think, but I don't know if you knew trouble. Have a touchdown today.
I think Karim Hunt will have a good game.
I think I'll have a touchdown, but definitely not 100 yards.
I think Baker Mayfield together for We'll throw for 303 100 yards and say three touchdowns, no 300 yards, four touchdowns.
Man Karim Hunt has touched down, so I don't know.
I think that this game is going to be a lot of fun.
Like I said, every game here on out is a win or go home situation for the Cleveland Browns.
So it's gonna be a fun game.
It's going to be fun living week to week.
Um, hopefully we can pull it out today and go brownies apiece.
