Your Thoroughly Unnecessary Preseason Colts/Browns Preseason Tilt Open Thread

I shouldn’t have bothered with it but this is a NFL footballing site so this is sorta what we do. And the thing is, I’m lowkey cheering for these teams to continue the success they seemed to have backed into the latter half of last season. I do the same thing with the Bills every year as well. Why? I guess there are some teams you end up feeling sorry for, that get piled on to the point where said piling seems forced after a while and so I hope the narrative changes direction-if only for a year or so. TO THE GAME!

Cle/Indy:

Andy Reid, when asked about Freddie Kitchens responded, “Not sure why but I really like the cut of that man’s striploin steak, er, jib. I meant jib.” Kitchens is trying to change the culture of the Browns but not necessarily in the locker room a la the Giants. (after all, they did trade for a certain OBJ) No, apparently the organization was rife with Negative Nelly’s that ran to the media and anonymously dropped bombs on co-workers that reinforced the notion that the whole place was a shit show.

Speaking of shit shows, Jim “I’m not a doctor but if you need pills, I’m your guy” Irsay muddied the Luck injury waters with his ‘a bone in the calf’ diagnosis. It turns out the issue might be with the talus bone at the base of the shin. But he was close! Similarly, Beckham had a hip pointer but then not-it’s just a plain old hip injury.

News from these teams joint practices can be condensed into the old ‘these teams just don’t like each other’ chestnut. I’m curious to see how scrappy the actual game gets.

Fantasy-wise, if you’re docking wr Hilton a few spots that might be a mistake. The guy that had the most yards receiving in the second half of the season in 2018 has been targeted 30 times in full scrimmages and has caught 29 of those balls. He’s eating up cb’s right now.

I had a few more tidbits but I can hear your yawns. Just type, okay?

The Colts are going to be good this year but they’re just so bland.

Humps vs .500s should be track meets.

School just started and my nephew, Jay, had to fill out some forms at school. He checked Hispanic on a form and he said the teacher gave him back the form and told him to fix his ethnicity mistake. Jay explains, Hispanic is correct and that the they shouldn’t make assumptions. Jay gets written up by the teacher for being disrespectful. Jay says this is a new teacher.

This all happens on Monday and my sister finds out about it that night. She raises hell Tuesday morning at school. My other nephew went with my sister and said the principal did everything but offer money to get my sister to keep quiet. Jay has a new schedule now, he’s not in the 1st period class anymore with that jackass teacher.

My sister has the 1st school board meeting on her calendar now. You better believe I’m trying to find this teachers social media accounts. On LinkedIn I see he moved here from Wisconsin.

Tampa Bay is -324 tonight at home against Detroit (+280).
Boston is -328 at home against Baltimore (+263).
That’s just turrible.

But I am considering laying some on…..Detroit.
