1085 Gridiron Episode #8

During a stormy Thursday afternoon, Jack and Anthony are joined by their good friend Jeff Rich of Sports Byline USA Network and the host of the Greetings from Goodyear Podcast.

We dive into Brock Osweiler being named the starter for Monday Night Football against the New York Giants.

What is the plan for DeShone Kizer? We ask Jeff what he thought of the first game from Kizer. Can he jump Osweiler here in the next week in the 2nd and 3rd preseason game?

We discuss the injuries to Joel Bitonio and Cam Erving as well as dive into the news we got during the podcast that Danny Shelton will be out 3-6 weeks.

With all of the improvements made in the offseason, Jeff tells us to temper our expectations. We get into each of our personal histories of Browns’ fandom.

We cover the Madden ratings for the wide receiver core, or lack thereof.

Jack goes into the news that he got about Josh Gordon. We all discuss what to do with Josh Gordon and are we romanticizing what he was?

We all discuss the Ezekial Elliot story and Anthony posed the question of where is the line that we should not cross when it comes to a player doing something horrible despite our fandom.

The Buffalo Bills traded away Sammy Watkins and seem to be stockpiling picks, are they trying to do what the Browns did?

We discuss where the Browns rank in Cleveland, and no surprise here, it’s third.

You can ask the show questions using #1085Gridiron on Twitter and Facebook, we answer this week’s questions.

To wrap up the Browns talk, we all give our expectations for Monday Night.

Finally, we discuss Chris Sheridan’s report about LeBron “100% leaving” after next season.
