RODA’S WEEKEND OBSERVATIONS

I loved the Ohio State Buckeyes “Focusness” in their 43-7 win over Ohio University.

They did not have a letdown at all after that big win over Miami the week before. O.S.U.

Jumped out to a 34-0 lead a never had to worry like they did two years ago when the Bobcats came to “The Horseshoe”.

That’s a sign of a mentally prepared team with solid senior and upper classmen leadership.

Yes the Buckeyes dominated and won, but that doesn’t mean they were perfect.  Far from it.  Their special teams units continue to stink. Another kick off return for a touchdown given up, but luckily for the Buckeyes it was called back because of an illegal block.

Then later in the game Ohio State had a punt blocked.  That’s a punt blocked, a field goal blocked and returned for a touchdown, a kick off returned for a touchdown and a punt returned for a touchdown in just 3 games.  The Buckeyes won’t win a national championship if these miscues continue on special teams!

Other than getting “stupid greedy” right before the half when he was intercepted in the end zone, I thought Terrelle Pryor continued to make strides at the quarterback position.  He completed 16 consecutive passes, which is a school record, and made good decisions on when to throw, who to throw to, and when to run.

Congrats to 5th year walk on senior Scott Sika.  The offensive lineman from Strongsville, Ohio was given a full scholarship for his final year at O.S.U.  Then to make his week even better, he played with the 2nd unit in the 2nd quarter of the win over Ohio and was part of the post game press conference.  Well deserved for one of the hardest workers on the team.

Here are my Browns thoughts following another embarrassing loss, this time to Kansas City at home 16-14:

Browns Quarterback Seneca Wallace

They have NO threats, ZERO threats on offense.  Not a single player scares the opposition. As a K.C. coach said after the game “they’re made up of a bunch of 2’s and 3’s, no stars at all”.

They lack talent throughout their entire roster, not just offense.  It’s a team made of up of “JAGS”, that stands for “Just Another Guy”!

Brian Dabol is not cut out to be an NFL offensive coordinator.

Eric Mangini should not sit down for too long because he’ll burn his derriere, as that seat keeps getting hotter and hotter!

I do like the play of rookies Joe Haden and T.J. Ward, they are the bright spots on this (0-2) team.

If they can’t beat Tampa Bay and Kansas City in the first two weeks, how are they supposed to win any of the next 7 games against: Baltimore, Cincinnati, Atlanta, Pittsburgh, New Orleans, New England and the New York Jets?  Can you say (0-9)?
