Lauletta's arm looks a little stronger than I expected  
Jay on the Island : 8/9/2018 9:36 pm : link
If he can find away to add more velocity to his throws then we might have something here.
Webb just doesn't look fluid with his movements...  
GFAN52 : 8/9/2018 9:36 pm : link
too mechanical.
The Browns 3rd string QB is now in  
Ten Ton Hammer : 8/9/2018 9:36 pm : link

Mayfield should be done for the night  
santacruzom : 8/9/2018 9:37 pm : link
It would be so Brownsian to keep him in for no reason whatsoever and have him hurt himself.

He supposedly has this insane work ethic, but he may not know what he should work on.
Nice hit.

Nice  
AcidTest : 8/9/2018 9:39 pm : link
hit by Stewart.
Another great return.....

sarcasm there
That Tom Quinn touch

Terps you are pathetic  
Dave on the UWS : 8/9/2018 9:41 pm : link
The practice I saw Webb made Lauletta look outmatched. Webb looked terrible tonight. He looked clunky, mechanical and his throwing fundamentals were terrible- the opposite of practice. Obviously if he canít translate to game action he wonít be here long. Letís be a little patient.

Stewart is just brutally slow. Like out of the league slow.


He might be a pass protection guy, and veteran to make a sneaky play occasionally.

I agree, but I fear it may be worse than that. He has ALL the athleticism and physical ability in the world. But I'm afraid the problem is between his ears. (football IQ).

Some guys just get it, and some guys don't. Guys like Chad Pennington and Jason Garrett had it between their ears, but had weak arms. Lauletta is PLENTY accurate, and seems to get it. I HOPE he has ENOUGH arm to be more than a good backup. If not, he's Pennington -- a guy who can't attack the sidelines.


Was that penalty  
Jay in Toronto : 8/9/2018 9:42 pm : link
On Thomas or Haley?
Honestly I hope Mayfield is great  
BestFeature : 8/9/2018 9:42 pm : link
All of the greats are going to retire soon and Cleveland can use a break.
Those who spent time reading into Davis Webb the prospect  
Ten Ton Hammer : 8/9/2018 9:44 pm : link
would have seen that the knocks against him were related to his ability to read the field and deliver the pass quickly enough. Some people wrote it as "slow to process" what he sees. I saw a bit of that tonight.
Robert Martin looking good  
jeff57 : 8/9/2018 9:44 pm : link
.
Nice block  
Jay in Toronto : 8/9/2018 9:45 pm : link
By Smith
Martin with a few nice runs too......  
Simms11 : 8/9/2018 9:45 pm : link
He was very good at Rutgers.
Iíll tell you what I see from this team..  
bLiTz 2k : 8/9/2018 9:45 pm : link
Across the board they look like they are committed to running the ball, and stopping the run. Exactly what you want to see in preseason game #1.
Wish Lauletta  
Simms11 : 8/9/2018 9:46 pm : link
had a few more seconds. He had Martin curtting across.
Except for a couple of rare instances  
Peter from NH (formerly CT) : 8/9/2018 9:47 pm : link
Giant WR not getting much seperation
Papa mentioning the Yankees!  
Dave in Hoboken : 8/9/2018 9:47 pm : link

RIght read for Lauletta there....  
Britt in VA : 8/9/2018 9:47 pm : link
just couldn't get it done.

I think this is proper perspective. Ignore the preseason hype and recalibrate your expectations, both short term and long, the guy is a project seeing his first real action in 2 years.
Can you not decline that?  
BestFeature : 8/9/2018 9:49 pm : link

Not a lot of penalties on Giants either....  
Simms11 : 8/9/2018 9:50 pm : link
that shows pretty good discipline
Why are we playing Tanney?  
BestFeature : 8/9/2018 9:51 pm : link
I want to see more of Lauletta.
Why is Taney in there?  
Simms11 : 8/9/2018 9:51 pm : link
Shouldnít Lauletta be getting more reps? Taney wonít be here!
Why take Lauletta out?  
Dave in Hoboken : 8/9/2018 9:52 pm : link
Ugh.
Jesus.  
Beezer : 8/9/2018 9:52 pm : link
Catch the damn football fellas.
Now  
AcidTest : 8/9/2018 9:52 pm : link
we can't catch anything.

Surprised Tanney is playing. Thought we'd see more of Lauletta.
Yikes.  
Dave in Hoboken : 8/9/2018 9:53 pm : link

We're in the "these guys are barely football players"  
Ten Ton Hammer : 8/9/2018 9:54 pm : link
depth of the game, might not be worth playing Lauletta with this group.
Bruce Beck is so annoying  
Peter from NH (formerly CT) : 8/9/2018 9:54 pm : link
Preseason is bad enough without his ĒinterviewsĒ.

This is Tanney's payment  
David B. : 8/9/2018 9:56 pm : link
for being the 4th camp arm. He has NO SHOT WHATSOEVER. He's hoping to be someone else's 3rd stringer.
Did Shurmur call plays tonight?  
Simms11 : 8/9/2018 9:57 pm : link
Did he use a sheet?
I know it's just one pre-season game  
nyjuggernaut2 : 8/9/2018 9:58 pm : link
but if Eli misses any time this season with an injury, we may be screwed.
Ok....better punt.

Of course we are! Why wouldnt we be? Any team loses their starting QB and they are likely screwed outside of the Eagles.
Dixon looks like a huge upgrade over

Wing.
Why take out Lauleta?

I swear.. Like Tanney is going to make the team?? See what you got in these Rookie QB's.. smh.
Nice little move

There's also the possibility that you don't know what the hell you were watching.

needs more arm strength, but with proper training at the NFL level that might well be possible.


Considering how small his biceps looked in comparison to our punter, you have to be hopeful that a year in an "NFL weight room" will do wonders for his arms.
Webb seems like a book smart overachiever  
slickwilly : 8/9/2018 10:57 pm : link
Let me explain that. We've all heard how meticulous Webb is with his note taking and his binders. He swems very much like people I have met in real life who are very intelligent, but the issue is the translation of that knowledge to what it is meant for. Webb seems so mechanical locking in on receivers because he has the "book smarts" of what he thinks is the right read, but not the natural ability to diagnose a D and react to it real time.

The overachiever part also goes back to past experience. How may times did you see a kid who was really good at a sport, but in the back of your mind you were also thinking if I got to play whatever sport year round like this kid I would kick his ass?

Webb seems like he has gotten to where he is because of a great work ethic which is comendible for sure, but I think he lacks that elite talent and natural ability to excel at the highest level of the sport.
So it only took one preseason  
Doomster : 8/10/2018 11:23 am : link
game to determine that Webb and Lauletta were mistakes and wasted draft picks?
