We're talking about it in different threads, but it could be the difference between 10-6 and a brief playoff cameo... and a game or two better and ready to knock of serious opponents.
The Chiefs defense gradually got better all of 2019 and by the last several games and then the playoffs, they were more than good enough to win a championship. Between tweaks and getting healthy, the Browns need to do the same.
On the pay board, a dude offered up this "ideal" lineup if everybody's healthy, and got agreement:
DL: Myles, Sheldon, Larry, Clayborn. Latter has outplayed Vernon, but in packages, I'm thinking both he and Clayborn are on the field.
LB: Wilson-Phillips hold on for one more day. I think it's our "upside" duo, the one most likely to be good and possibly really good. After that, I like Malcolm Smith, he can cover.
CB: 3 of them. I believe he pitched Denzel, KJ, and Greedy. Latter could be Mitch.
S: Joseph and Ronnie Harrison.
It's a faster group than we've seen so far and they cover way better with no Sione, BJ, or Sendejo out there. Thoughts? Anybody think we'll make a middle-class trade before the deadline?
