    I think ATL should win this game, but Tampa is a solid team. The point spread seems pretty wide to me, actually. I think this is a decently close game.

      It doesn't really matter since McDersucksdicks thinks that putting an undersized DE with great quickness and pass-rush moves at DT is a genius idea.

      **** you, McBagofdicks.

        So they've been playing Graham at DT? On what, 3rd and 15+? What is with teams doing that this year? The Colts are doing that with Keyunta Dawson. The big difference is that he doesn't have great quickness or pass-rush moves, but the undersized DE part is dead on.

        I don't get it. I think the Giants have been doing this too, or at least they were at the beginning of the season.

          Graham is something like 5'10" and is very good using his speed and quickness, plus his height to gain leverage on the edge. His skill set at present does not allow him to work in the DT construct on any down and distance. It does not create space for any of the other DLinemen. It is a failed matchup.

            Basically every passing down. It's dumb. He's not a DT. He's not even a third-down DT. He's a ************* DE (Destroyer of Everything). Leave him on the outside. Graham's game is built for the outside.

              Graham was my favorite DE prospect in that class so this is disappointing to hear. I could understand using him as a stand up interior pass rusher on occasion if they wanted to move him around but as a hand-to-ground DT it seems kind of stupid to put him in there where he can't use his athleticism. I assume he just gets mauled by guards and centers?

                Obviously. They put him at DE against San Francisco and he....shockingly had a sweet TFL on Frank Gore and had a sack and strip of Alex Smith that Quintin Mikell scored on. I don't have a problem with him being the backup because Parker's played well, but seriously, play the man at his position.

                  Yeah, ATL coming off a bye and Matty Ice is like 18-1 at home in his career.

                      Cleveland has shown itself to be scrappy so far. They can run to control the clock and protect McCoy. They should have all of their WR's back. Not a lock for a blowout.

                        We haven't lost in Oakland since 2002. I'm hoping that doesn't change this weekend!

                              Meh, yeah it is. Brady won't play like Brees. Our open field tackling is as pleasant to watch as... fill in the blank. We're ******. I'm okay with it.

                                I will fill in the blank. The Browns' open field tackling is like watching old people fahk...
