I still keep going back to the fact that the game started with an INT on our first drive on a ball that was forced to our 4th receiver on 3rd down after already having a ball batted down earlier in the drive
Right - Baker played poorly there. Still has absolutely nothing to do with OBJ's repeated screw ups of basic plays by a guy in his 7th NFL season.

I initially faulted D'ernest Johnson for passing on the Fort block. If he had hit him, the Hammer had a head of steam but it still would have been close.
I call bullshit. Give me the Hammer with a full head of steam versus Ray Lewis in his prime and he is dragging the motherfucker for 4 yards.

Baker Mayfield discussing the pass protection from last season reminded me of this power scene from one of my all time favorite films:

Our #1 WR had 4 plays on Sunday that he blew.

1. Facemask Penalty
2. Stepped out of bounds before catching a ball on the sideline. Just zero awareness
3. Dropped a short pass on 3rd and 2. The ball would've hit his helmet.
4. Failed to catch a slant pass over the middle. Ball was low at his knees but #1 WRs make that play all the time.

Also, it seems every mistake Baker makes involves him holding on to the ball too long. Numerous throws on Sunday could've been to open receivers if thrown a second earlier, he's thinking too much.

It isn’t just you, but when a team gets Hulk-Smashed like we did, its truly a team effort. This obsession w OBJ and Baker, sure they get more blame than others for good reason, but we got worked, and that’s on everyone: coaches, players, Jigo, Gour, and even Ben.

Fucking Jigo. Always letting the team down.

Love Landry and everything he brings to the team. It takes a terrible throw for him not to catch it. He knows how to position himself and angle towards the throw when it's in the air.

Feels like he's been in the league forever but he's only 27. Same age as OBJ. If we can win some games and change the culture a little bit in the future, I'd love for him to stay here the rest of his career.

OBJ just doesn't attack the ball the same way Landry (or anyone else for that matter) does.

Gotta give it some more time but I'm leaning towards trading OBJ more than not at this point. I think we could still snag a 1st or 2nd, given that most teams just view the Browns as inept and incapable of utilizing him properly.

Landry is clearly the more valuable player. We should keep him.

I think OBJ and Landry could really be helped if we had a speedy WR/deep threat. Who is our deep threat?
