    Steelers fans are getting cocky. I don't see them ever getting below .500 even with injuries, simply because they are that well-run and know how to win. EVEN WITH LESSER PLAYERS than usual, they still are playing hard and doing well. Browns are underachieving.

    Browns need to get a lead, play mistake-free and hang on.

    They don't match up well with us at all. That said, I see a close game either way if we bring intensity.

    Hit Conner each time he has the ball. Swarm and gang-tackle like the Tampa Bay Bucs of Dungy's era.

    Still don't know why we didn't upgrade OL in the offseason.

    Dorsey didn't do enough and we are on a limited timeframe with Baker's rookie contract.

    You can throw the stats right out the window whenever we play against a division rival Pros. Especially the inbred. However if we don't take the air out of the ball and pound the rock against their pass rush, they are gonna swallow Mayfield whole.

    Run the ball on offense, stop the run on defense. Otherwise we take the L. We have to force Rudolph to win the game, while preventing Mayfield from blowing it by forcing the ball to Beckham. Pretty simple, but that's not what we do.

    The big question is whether the recent additions of Callaway, Higgins and Hunt change anything for the Browns' offense, which has underperformed badly this year. They're finally playing with a full deck except for not having their receiving TE's (Njoku and Seals-Jones). But there's enough talent at WR and RB that missing the TE's should not be a problem.

    The defense has also underperformed, but getting Greedy, Ward, and Randall back from injury should help the secondary. We still have big problems at linebacker (Wilson) and tackle (Ogunjobi). Vernon is out which means Chad Thomas steps in at DE. That's a big downgrade.

    "Dorsey didn't do enough..."

    -- Or he did too much of the wrong thing?

    We'll see how his report card looks at the end of the year. It all comes down to him.
