Last Chance for Analytics

Tags: , , , , ,

For Browns fans, these are the times that try men’s souls.  This Browns front office has 1 more chance to turn the team around or it will be gone.  I believe that HC Jackson has some time but not the front office.

My experience tells me when someone thinks they are the smartest guy in the room, very often they are not even in the running.  The Browns Front office is trying something different—Analytics.  The do think they are smarter than the rest of the league.  While Analytics works in baseball or basketball, it will not work in football.

One of the things that analytics suggests is trade down to get more draft picks.  That might work if the front office had any idea what they are doing with the extra picks.  Last Monday we detailed the picks that this administration made in 2016.  None of them were ranked in the top 60 in terms of production.  This year began with that same FO failing to get a deal with Pryor who got 1000 yards in his first season as WR with a bunch of nobodies throwing to him.  Instead they got an 8 year veteran who has just 1 1000 yard season in his career.

The FO had a chance to get QB Wentz with the 2nd pick last year but chose to trade down and depend on a fragile RG2.5 at that position.  Wentz and a very flawed Eagle team won 7 games.  The Cleveland Tans went 1-15.

1-15 would feel much better if we had a AFC North style rookie QB starting and learning from his mistakes.  What we had was the usual 43 QBs.  The QB they drafted in the 3rd round is a weak armed, under sized guy from the Pac12 who plays no D at all.

I am at the end of my rope with this group of pinheads.  What makes me think that EVP Sashi Brown can find more than 1 decent player?  Nothing at all.  My suggestion to Brown is go back to being a lawyer because you have no business being a judge of NFL talent.

CL run O (10th and falling like a rock) vs DA run D (9th)

CL O Nobody but Pryor & Barnidge can catch the ball.
Good 1st drive. Nice to get out front for a change. 3rd & 10  throw 2 Pryor was the key.
Way too many 3rd and long for #Browns.
Pryor is becoming a #1 WR.
3rd & 10 throw for 4 yards will not get the 1st.  McCown predetermined the throw. On his left were 2 rec wide open.
McCown is still using pre-snap read to decide where to go with the ball.  Hawkins was doubled but McC threw it anyway.
Browns, Way too little & way too late.
CL D Davis & company played the run wide well -3
Taylor 3 PD.
Browns have never figured out how to stop the run on the edge. 35y TD run by Powell.
Memo TO #Browns. Man D works better if the S stays in the middle of the field.
Pryor was beating Revis but Marshall beating Haden worse.
Browns D is mailing it in from nowhere special.  Have to fix the D. 20-7 lead gone to 28-20 deficite
coaching Your 0-7 and have a 3rd & 2.  Go for it.  All that can happen is you will lose another game.  #Browns
What is with the wholesale changes in personell. Cost 5 yards for 12 men on the field.
Browns were doing well in man so why change to zone in the 2nd half?
WAY too many drops by WRs.
CL did not make adjustments NJ did on O and D.  How many times have I said that?
Thoughts The O is MUCH better with McCown than RG3 or Kessler. 50% on 3rd down conversions.
The D gets warn out.  On the field for 20 min in 2nd half.  Rookies have hit the wall.
Tackling is HORRIBLE.  4 missed tackles on Enunwa’s TD.
We are not seeing the improvement I expected by the young players.
Kessler is NOT the QB 4 the future. Heart of a lion, Mind of a coach & the Arm of a chicken.

MI rb Arian Foster retires
nj QB Smith is put on IR
DV rb C J Anderson has meniscus damage out indefinately
OK lb Aldon Smith has applied for reinstatement after a year susp for substance abuse policy violation
DA Tony Romo is throwing the ball at practice.
JK22 TN36 The Titans scored on 4 of their first 5 possessions. It was a very one sided game.
2-5  4-4 The issue with JK was as usual QB Bortles.  His mechanics & footwork are bad. That prevents accuracy.
The game was Col. Mustard vs the Smerfs
TN Mariota 19/22 270 20 Murray 21/123 TD Wright 4c 84y TD
JK Bortles 33/54 337 30 4r 22y Hurns 7c 98 TD
WA CN-3 CN has to get the run game going again.  Looked great last week but that was vs CL so it doesn’t count.
4-3  3-4 WA run game is solid but the pass game has not been as effective as last year.
CN pass game (4th) vs WA pass D (17th)
WA pass game (3rd) vs CN pass D (12th)
NE-6.5 BF In week 4 BF shut out NE. But that was without Brady at QB. Look for NE to crush BF for payback.
6-1      4-3 BF pass D is horrible.  Brady & co will take advantage of that.
Brady & pass game vs BF pass D (31st)
BF run game (2nd) vs NE run D (11th)
AZ CR-3 CR has lost more games this year than in all of last season.  This will be a HUGE test of CR pass D.
3-3-1 1-5 Both teams need this game.  CR is out with 6 losses.  AZ needs to keep up with SE.
AZ run game (5th) vs CR run D (7th)
CR pass game (8th) vs AZ pass D (3rd)
DT HO-2.5 HO O has struggled but so has DT D.
4-3     4-3 The issue with Osweiler is he is not accurate & has bad footwork.
The only reason HC O’Brien has not benched his QB is Savage & Weeden are his only other QBs.
HO run game (12th) vs DT run D (19th)
DT pass game (12th) vs HO pass D (2nd)
KC-2.5 IN There is nothing wrong with Luck that a better O line would not solve.
4-2  3-4 KC needs a run game because that is the best chance for a long TD.  Smith’s arm is below average.
IN pass game (7th) vs KC pass D (19th)
KC run game (18th) vs IN run D (25th)
SE-3 NO SE has the WORST O line in NFL.  Not only hurts Wilson but run game as well.
4-1-1 2-4 All NO can depend on is QB Brees.  Has nothing else on either side of the ball.
SE pass game (14th) vs NO pass D (30th)
NO pass O (1st) vs SE pass D (9th)
OK TB-1 OK O is doing well while TB O is struggling a bit.
5-2 3-3 OK D is REALLY struggling but TB D is getting better.
OK O (13th pass & run) vs TB D (13th pass & 20th run)
TB pass O (16th) vs OK pass D (32nd)
DV-5.5 SD DV is a fairly complete team.  All SD has is Rivers.
5-2  3-4 DV rush O (16th) vs SD run D (8th)
SD pass O (5th) vs DV pass D (1st)
GB AT-3 GB O has struggled.  The problem is WRs are not getting open & Rodgers is not as accurate now either.
4-2  4-3 AT started hot but lost @ SE and home vs SD.  SE loss was expected. SD not so much.
AT pass O (2nd) vs GB pass D (15th)
GB pass O (20th) vs AT pass D (31st)
PH DA-4.5 DA has won 5 straight games.  Rookie QB Prescott is good but run game is outstanding.
4-2   5-1 PH rook QB Wentz is OK but the problem has been his mechanics.  The D has been the difference.
DA run game (1st) vs PH run D (14th)
PH run game (17th) vs DA run D (10TH)
MN-5.5  CH Monday
5-1          1-6
NJ-4.5 CL Neither of these teams are going anywhere.  NJ has no QB & CL has used 6 of them.
2-5       0-7 The best chance for CL is Fitzpatrick continuing to be very giving throwing picks.
NJ passing game (22nd) vs CL pass D (29th)
NJ run game (21st) vs CL run D (31st)
CL run game (8th) vs NJ run D (2nd)
CL pass game (24th) vs NJ pass D (27th)
QB McCown will start for CL. Does that improve their chance to win?
