Sport: Browns DE Myles Garrett reveals what shocked him about facing Dolphins

Browns Sign Veteran Center, Make Other Roster Moves

  Browns Sign Veteran Center, Make Other Roster Moves Cleveland Browns have placed Ethan Pocic on the injured reserve, signed a center and made other roster moves. With the unfortunate injury to center Ethan Pocic, the Cleveland Browns have opted to place him on the injured reserve. Additionally, Cleveland has signed veteran center Greg Mancz to the active roster. Pocic will now have to miss at least four games, the earliest he can return is against the New Orleans Saints on Christmas Eve. Mancz has started 32 games over the course of his seven year career. He was signed as an undrafted free agent in 2015 by the Houston Texans.

The Miami Dolphins put together a comprehensive 39-17 win against the Cleveland Browns in Week 10, leaving star pass-rusher Myles Garrett quite shocked about one particular aspect of the game.

Garrett said Friday he was shocked by how detailed the Dolphins’ game plan for the Browns was. The defensive lineman said it felt like the Dolphins had a counter for every adjustment the Browns made and that they knew exactly what Cleveland wanted to do and knew how to stop it.

One gets the impression this is uncommon in the NFL. Garrett does not say it after every game, after all. Plus, it is not as if he is accusing the Browns of failing to adjust, as he has done before. He indicates that they tried, but that even their adjustments were stymied by Miami.

This is certainly a ringing endorsement for first-year coach Mike McDaniel and what he has done with the Dolphins. He has been praised for bringing out the best in Tua Tagovailoa, but the impact has been felt across the entire team. That is why the Dolphins are 7-3 with four wins in a row. Based on what Garrett is saying, they could pose a lot of problems for teams down the stretch and into the playoffs.

Sick of how Browns are playing? Me too. Let’s look at the big picture – Terry Pluto

  Sick of how Browns are playing? Me too. Let’s look at the big picture – Terry Pluto CLEVELAND, Ohio — Once upon a time, the Browns were a tough, smart and accountable team. That was back in 2020 when GM Andrew Berry and coach Kevin Stefanski arrived. They inherited a talented but disjointed roster with a questionable culture. They took a 6-10 team to 11-5 and a playoff victory over Pittsburgh in their first season. Winning can cover flaws and cement some cracks in clubhouse chemistry. That is what happened in 2020, when QB Baker Mayfield grew together with the new coaching staff and the offense. A year later, things fell apart. There was a fracture between Mayfield, some players on offense and the coaching staff.

Packers QB Jordan Love offers ominous response when questioned if he'll ask for a trade .
The 24-year-old may look to move on if Rodgers plays out the three-year, $150 million contract he signed in March. “We’ll see,” Love told ESPN’s Rob Demovsky regarding possibly asking for a trade. “I would obviously be in the fourth year of my contract, and it would be the team’s possibility of picking up my fifth year. It’s really on them to see what kind of moves they want to make, what they want to do with the future.” De'Vondre Campbell with some praise for Jordan Love — PFF (@PFF) November 8, 2022 Love has played in just eight games over the last three seasons, starting once in 2021.
