Kind of nice to see those numbers. I felt the line did a good job getting to Mahomes (hommes) but he's just really really really good at extending plays and moving away from pressure and making stupid tough throws. To be honest I came a little when Garrett and Clowney FINALLY got a hit on him on that 3rd down sack. Felt well earned

We watched Wink's cover 0 defense get beat at the end of the MNF game. While watching the Peyton/Eli broadcast, they were calling cover 0 very easily. Hell I was doing the same thing. Predictability led to the easy Carr TD (drift back and lob it up) to win the game.

Ravens o-line looks awful too. I know it was just one game but the Raiders didn't look good either. I can see the Ravens winning only 9-10 games this year.

Unnecessary ejaculations aside, it was nice to seen Clowney and Garrett make that play. The team was desperate for a big play against a top rated offense. It was the defense's last chance to make a big play. There wasn't going to be a 4th Qtr comeback attempt without a big play on that down. The Browns defense stepped up an produced the big play. Browns have some talent on the Dline.

15. There are different elements of the problems on defense, but I circled this -- they didn’t have a sack or even a QB hit until rookie Grant Delpit crushed Houston rookie QB Davis Mills with 2:32 left. Jadeveon Clowney had two QB hits late.
16. Profootballfocus (PFF) on Clowney: “He didn’t have a ton of high-level pass-rushing wins, but he did come through with multiple tackles for loss or no gain.” Clowney had three total tackles, one for a loss according to the official stats.
17. PFF said Houston threw at Denzel Ward seven times, completing six. The cornerback was usually covering Houston’s top receiver – Brandin Cooks (nine catches). Rookie cornerback Greg Newsome II was targeted only twice, allowing one reception for two yards. Newsome also played well in K.C.
18. The Browns have dealt with two mobile QBs in the first two games – Patrick Mahomes (Chiefs) and Tyrod Taylor playing the first half for Houston. So that could be part of the lack of pass rush.
19. Nonetheless, more is and should be expected, especially the defensive line. Myles Garrett said: “The D-line is pretty much new except for me and Porter (Gustin, a backup). It’s tough to get that chemistry right away.”
20. Patience still is in order for the defense, which has times when it seems these guys barely know each other. Most of the time, they play at least seven guys who weren’t on the team a year ago. But they have to start figuring it out.

If you're scared to blitz Tyrod Taylor, I'm less worried about scheme and more worried about the size of Joe Wood's balls.

If you have a DE like Myles Garrett and a CB like Denzel Ward you can't coach scared. Don't invest money and draft capital in this defense and coach conservative. Get after it.

If we lose, I want it to be because the other team just outplayed our guys. I don't want to come away from the game feeling like the coaches left some food on the table.

There's a difference between "playing scared" and scheming to defend a running quarterback.

Pass rush wasn't a problem against Mahomes, the problem was Mahomes blowing past the rusher. I'm not saying everything went perfectly against the Texans, but containing a rushing QB seemed to be the emphasis. Tyrod rushed once, then Mills was overall ineffective.

Woods can certainly look into different techniques besides switching up the zone against Fields this week, but the point should still be to prevent a running QB from picking up easy first down after easy first down with his legs.
