Season 3, Episode 22 of The Terrible Podcast is up and co-host David Todd I start by giving our thoughts on the Baltimore Ravens win over the Cleveland Browns Thursday night. We give our thoughts on Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden and the way the Ravens are really stretching the field vertically this year.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are on a bye this week, but there is still plenty of news to talk about. Linebacker James Harrison reportedly had a setback with his left knee this week, so that gets our attention first. As I mentioned on the Wednesday episode, there was some uncertainty as to whether Read more [...]
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
I think we all realize that the Pittsburgh Steelers’ defense is better with James Harrison on the field than off. You could certainly argue even at 75% Harrison would be a better option than either Chris Carter or Jason Worilds. The problem really doesn’t revolve around that though because what it deals with is simply getting Harrison on the field period.
I found myself at one...
Brandon Weeden has been getting better game in and game out. After a very lousy 5 percent quarterback rating in week 1, Weeden is becoming a better QB. After last week’s performance against Buffalo where he had the Browns in the game until the very end of the fourth quarter, Weeden seems to be getting a better understanding. I expect Weeden to put up big numbers...
“We battled, we came up short and we fought our [tails] off.” — Brandon Weeden
“He battled.” — Pat Shurmur on Weeden
“Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden and his young, inexperienced receivers grew up a lot in Baltimore Thursday night, making the Ravens sweat it out until the last play of the game when they had a chance to tie it.” — Mary Kay Cabot
Troy Polamalu and James Harrison returned to practice Tuesday and participated fully. Optimism was high Tuesday night and Wednesday morning that both players would be back soon. That idea was destroyed Wednesday afternoon when Harrison left the Steelers facility before practice had even started due ContinueThe post James Harrison Return Still Unknown appeared first on SteelBlitz.
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Greg Little (second in drops last season) continued his catching problems last night against the Baltimore Ravens, dropping a total of five catches, including a great Brandon Weeden would-be-touchdown pass that he had right in his hands.
“My job is just to beat the guy and get through the middle of the field,” Little said. “[Weeden] moved...
The Ravens will be playing their fourth game in 17 days, and third primetime game in their first four Thursday night when they take on the division rival Browns.
Cleveland is winless and has a rookie quarterback and running back combination in the backfield.
The winless part won’t change for Cleveland because the Ravens’ defense will harass Brandon Weeden into mistakes. Weeden...
The 0-3 Browns will return to primetime with a visit to Baltimore to take on the 2-1 Ravens.
This game will be the first following the end of the NFL referee lockout, with real referees on tap to officiate tonight. So this means no more complaints, no matter how valid, can be attributed to poor officiating!
After a terrible performance in Week 1, it looked like...
Cornerback Cary Williams had been having a rough couple games until now. Williams intercepted rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden and returned it 61 yards for a touchdown.
The pick was Williams’ first in his career.
The Ravens now lead the Browns 23-10 heading to the fourth quarter.
A game that featured nearly 800 yards in offense, an interception return for a touchdown, helmet-loosening hits and a thrilling finish may best be remembered for what it didn't have: Controversy over the officiating.
The regular officials returned to the field Thursday night, and they nearly had to work overtime on their first day back. Rookie Brandon Weeden misfired on two...
A few dropped passes, none no bigger than Greg Little's drop late in the fourth quarter hamper the Browns once again.
Rookie QB Brandon Weeden pushes the Baltimore Ravens to the edge as rushing attack abandoned.
The fan reaction to the return of the regular NFL referees in time for the Cleveland Browns to play the Baltimore Ravens is funny. While some fans where excited to see the return of the regular NFL refs, other said the Browns are going to need a lot more than the regular NFL refs to get a win against the Baltimore Ravens. The NFL extended the deal for 8 years to bring the referees...
With the NFL reaching an agreement with the officials to return to refereeing the league, it has kind of gotten lost in the shuffle that there is an actual game tonight. And at first glance, you’d think any match up consisting of the Ravens, who look like rue Super Bowl contenders in the early going, facing off against the hapless Cleveland Browns would be a pushover. But there...
Last week: 6 (-5)
The Steelers suck on the road. Over the last year plus on the road, they are -43, including playoffs, and +137 at home. They beat Indianapolis by just 3, Kansas City by just 4, and Cleveland by just 3 last year and now they lost to Oakland. They also really miss James Harrison and especially Troy Polamalu. That’s not all him, but a lot of that is him...
