THE BROWNS BOARD

Fujita And Gocong?

Recommended Posts

I like what I see out of dqell jackson this year. He looks like he will thrive in the 4 3, but fujita and gocong are non existant.

 

Fujita can't seem to get off blocks and is slow and so is gocong.

 

Anyone else notice this?

 

Also carlton mitchel coming back hopefully sends robo to waivers.

fug did a decent job against clark, but gocong was pretty average. nothing really much to speak of....

 

DQ has the same problem getting off blocks, so its not just him. gets swallowed up in traffic.

 

we'll get some LB upgrades later on, but these guys certainly are not the worst LB unit we've fielded recently. appears to be the weakest link of the D tho....funny how youth is already playing better than our aged... B)

Choco is right in the sense that DQJ runs head first into blockers and gets himself swallowed up but i think it has more to do with the blockers realizing DQJ is the only legit LB on the field so they target him while easily blocking out gocong and fujita only on an as needed basis..

 

DQJ when free is all over the place trying to offer up support while both gocong and fujita are way to slow, taken out early and are somewhat stationary..

None of the 3 athletically shed or evade blocks well enough..

You notice my post in another thread? The Browns WILL draft a LB in the first round next year. It wasn't exactly rocket science to know the Browns current crop of linebackers aren't up to NFL standards- that was said from many points before the season even started.

Gocong is useless. Fujita I haven't noticed bad play ... but I also havent noticed good play.

 

Djax has looked good though especially the first game.

 

Remember both Gocong and Fujita had no offseason really with the lock out and their injuries in camp. but I do agree, this is the weakest part of our defense and hope we get a stud next year who can really help to set the tone and be teh face of this defense (besides Haden of course ;) )

Gocong is a good lunchpail type that will be working hard on every play but only get his named called on TV occasionally.

 

Fujita, I agree with whoever said he hasn't done much bad or good yet. I don't imagine he'll do much "bad" all year, but the good will come ... he's as solid as they come.

 

DQ is off to a hell of a start. He is the defensive playcaller, has been playing his position well and getting QB pressure.

 

All three are solid starters. My concern with the LB position is the drop-off in quality should one of them get injured.

My predictions??

 

Who else had the Browns winning and the Ravens and Bengals losing? Show me.

 

And as for homos, yes, I was a pioneer in organizing an effort for them establishing their own Browns Board, but it's not like I openly stroked Jon Gruden for two years.

fujita is a strongside backer. his job is to take on blockers and clog the hole. in pass defense he will likely cover the fullback or tight end

 

neither are very glorified roles but both are of huge importance to the success of the 4-3

 

take notice that the saints lost fujita after 09 and they still havent found one guy that can do everything fujita could do all by himself. be happy with his play because you wont be happy when hes gone

i like the spirit that Dqwell is showing. The problem is that Rebel is right on the money. None of these three guys would likely start for any team in our conference. That's a shame.
