From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 17): How much is Tyrod Taylor holding back the Browns offense, or conversely, what could Baker Mayfield add to the Browns offense? They may have a plan of keeping Mayfield on the bench all year, but as near miss losses and ties pile up, these questions could push Mayfield onto the field sooner or later.

General News (Fri Sep 21): replaced a concussed Tyrod Taylor and led the Browns to a comeback victory in Week 3. Mayfield has not been named the starting quarterback by head coach Hue Jackson, who said he needed to watch game film before naming a starter.

FBG says: Good matchup. Week 2 brought some noticeable steps forward for the Browns passing attack, even as top deep threat Josh Gordon was shuffled loose from the team. A week after completing just 15 of 40 throws, Tyrod Taylor hit on 22 of 30 against the Saints, utilizing a low-risk approach over the middle and in the flats. Taylor had no success downfield, however, until a 47-yard touchdown pass to Antonio Callaway tied the game in the final 2 minutes. And his back-breaking fourth-quarter interception was a terrible throw into aggressive double coverage. Taylor annually ranks among the league's leaders in deep-ball efficiency, but he's struggling to make things happen as a Brown. Without Gordon, the personnel lends itself to a short-ball game dominated by Jarvis Landry and David Njoku, neither of whom has ever shown much down the field. There's dynamism on the table, of course, in the speedy Callaway. And if Njoku's seam routes start panning out, he'll be a dangerous weapon in the Eric Ebron mold. But as things stand, this isn't a very fruitful passing game. Taylor needs more time to develop downfield chemistry with his receivers; without it, he's little more than a sanitized dump-off artist. The Jets are in the midst of assembling a workable, even dynamic, secondary. Morris Claiborne is rebuilding his career as an outside cover man, while prized free agent Trumaine Johnson and slot man Buster Skrine comprise a stout group of cornerbacks. And second-year safeties Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye have both flashed potential as centerfield playmakers. Still, armed with arguably the league's least-impactful pass rush, there's a ton of pressure on that secondary week after week. It's rare to see much heat put on by the talent-starved front line, forcing the linebackers and safeties to create pressure on blitzes. The Jets desperately need young edge rusher Brandon Copeland to keep inching forward as a playmaker. If no one makes a leap, this will continue to be a put-upon unit, one that will tire in games and allow big gains through the air.
