taking risks and throwing the ball down the field

Tyrod Taylor [url=http://www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.com/myles-garrett-jersey]Authentic Myles Garrett Jersey[/url] , There’s a slightly common misconception that quarterback Tyrod Taylor is a “safe” player who makes smart decisions and doesn’t take many risks down the field.While that may have been somewhat true in the past, Taylor’s “avoidance” of throwing the ball downfield is “overstated,” according to Football Outsiders’ Aaron Schatz.“Last year, Taylor threw 16 percent of passes over 15 yards downfield,” Schatz wrote in response to the Dawgs By Nature Staff’s questionnaire sent to Football Outsiders. “That ranked 24th among 35 quarterbacks with at least 200 attempts. Below average, but not last.“You know who was last? Aaron Rodgers.”Tell me that’s not at least a little bit surprising. When you think of Rodgers, you marvel in your mind about his big arm and ability to make the big plays down the field.And there is another common misconception that throwing the football down the field is the only way to successfully execute a passing game. But that’s not entirely true [url=http://www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.com/jarvis-landry-jersey]Jarvis Landry Jersey Elite[/url] , and it’s not an automatic precursor for success.Schatz highlighted a player we’re all familiar with who finished third in the NFL on such “deep” attempts last season.DeShone Kizer constantly threw the ball down the field under Hue Jackson’s play-calling last season, and we all know how that turned out. It blew up in flames, leaving tons of question marks about Jackson’s judgment in managing his rookie signal-caller.While Taylor’s probably not going to go deep as often, hopefully because Todd Haley doesn’t put his quarterback in that position, the Browns are loaded with potential playmakers who can stretch a football field.Throwing the ball deep is essential to maintaining balance and keeping defenses honest. That much we do know, which means the long ball is more a tool than it is the entire toolbox.“Trust me, Taylor will make enough deep attempts to keep the offense on schedule and keep opponents from constantly playing both safeties in the box [url=http://www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.com/jarvis-landry-jersey]http://www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.com/jarvis-landry-jersey[/url] ,” Schatz concluded.The best we can hope for this season is the Browns field a balanced offense that takes measured and calculated risks. Taylor seems to be a guy who is capable of playing within his system and taking those shots when he has to.After seeing glimpses of the passing game in Week 1, then the rushing attack in Week 2, we’ll hopefully learn more about how the Browns offense will operate as their starters are likely going to play the entire first half against the Eagles this week.Cleveland Browns Podcast - Next Up On The DBN Network: Ez Does It Postgame 9/21/18 Years from now you will tell people that you love where you were and what you were doing when saw this game.For the first time in 75 years the Browns win a game, but more importantly than that, the Browns introduced to the NFL our new QB, and that would be the guy taken with the number 1 pick in last April’s draft (because he was the BPA and our biggest need): Baker Mayfield.The result was a reversal of what we have come so accustomed to, a 21-17 victory over the New York Jets [url=http://www.officialbrownsfootballstore.com/baker-mayfield-jersey-cheap]Cheap Baker Mayfield Jersey[/url] , and I get into it in my most favorite post-game ‘cast of Ez Does ItUnbelievable feelingThe Jets are better coached than usThe voice screaming in my head all night: This was Baker’s FIRST time with the 1’s.All yearI love Tyrod Taylor, butMeathead’s great draftIsaiah Crowell and attitudeWhy Baker doing what he did means even more than us winningComparing this to other big wins in my lifeStill a little shellshocked, but in a great way.Give a listen by clicking the player at the top of the page.You may also utilize the widget located in between the article and comments’ section (of not just this but every DBN article).You can also go here:Always appreciate feedback (and as many obnoxious gifs as you’d like to leave) in the comments’ section below.You can also send me a more scathing personal rebuke to my email: ezweav@gmail.com.Thanks for listening!The DBN NetworkBrowns’ Fans Talking To Browns’ Fans
