Could be a long night in Baltimore for Weeden, Browns

Cleveland Browns QB Brandon Weeden and his struggling offensive line might be in for a world of hurt against the Baltimore Ravens on “Thursday Night Football.” Even with the losses of edge rusher Jarrett Johnson to San Diego in the offseason and Terrell Suggs due to an Achilles injury, the Ravens are still finding ways to rush the passer because of their scheme. Their ability to confuse protections by providing different looks and disguising their blitzes makes up for their lack of premier pass rushers. They are proficient with twists and stunts while bringing pressure off the edge, which leaves offensive lines in disarray and often leaves a lineman on air while a free rusher clobbers the QB.

Playbook: Jags need to arm Gabbert for success

For any team that drafts a quarterback in the first round, next year’s offseason has to be about solidifying your squad around that player.

Playbook: Free-spending ‘Skins have options this offseason

Far be it for us to speculate what the Redskins will do in the offseason. So, instead of trying to séance with Dan Snyder’s money and figure out where it will go, let’s try and find a few places where it might be well-placed.

Playbook: Young Bucs need to look at veteran adds

Following a 10-6 season in 2010, Raheem Morris nicknamed the Buccaneers “Youngry” because of their talented stock of up-and-comers. That promise didn’t pan out in 2011, leaving Morris without a job and incoming head coach Greg Schiano with decisions on what to make of his young first-team (which averaged less than 26 years old coming into the year).
