I'm Brian Webber I'm pleased to be joy about foxwoods dot coms Peter Schrager get you ready for week nine in the NFL peed on Paper the Browns are three of war. Still part of the AFC playoff picture what you think. Big trouble could be coming up what's wrong with Cleveland. You know the Browns are three and four were to look at the three teams they beat it was. Colts the Dolphins and the Seahawks those three teams -- -- on the JV high school teams that meet anybody of -- and their schedule only gets tougher from here on out. I've read this week a lot of newspaper guys a lot of pundits on TV thing that Colt McCoy struggling. After the veteran. -- like having a good season. He has nothing to work with in Cleveland. You look at the skill positions that he had done that often you could make the argument that it is the worst receiving corps in the worst running back corps in the entire NFL. -- on the West Coast offense but they have no receivers who can get yards after the catch. They -- receivers who can go deep they have no receivers who can -- to get open on a simple crossing pattern. They -- Brian Robiskie but it wasn't our -- if he's well. Mohamed Massaquoi I I don't know if you can make an NFL squad elsewhere good analyst Josh Cribbs is not number one receiver Greg Little. Could project he's not a guy -- complain right away. You have to wonder why -- the Browns in the market for randomly. -- -- the back the draft where all the pundits were tripping over themselves to congratulate Tom anchor Mike Holmgren on trading away the sixth making getting all bounty of picks from Atlanta. Julio Jones a city why not get comical at talented player like Jones who we can grow old this team is terrible on offense and it's not Colt McCoy is ball. That is no help around. The Giants went on Sunday -- was loss putting New York atop the standings in their division the Cowboys. In a three way tie at the bottom of the NFC east what you think things went to even out starting this week. Please elaborate. Yet you look at the Giants in their five into in the and -- company -- but I think they need to temper their enthusiasm quite a bit meanwhile down in Dallas team all these fans were miserable Michigan hasn't confusing. We're three and four how this happened they need to relax because look at what both teams have up ahead. Giants there -- in the next five weeks before they play the count was on December 11 includes the Patriots. A trip to San Francisco for the 49ers. The Packers the Saints and Eagles and lucky to get winner out of that if you know maybe two. Then you look at what the Cowboys have ahead they have the Seahawks are terrible and got the Redskins to -- that they've got the bills who are good but they can beat the bills. And then you've got the Dolphins and the Cardinals. House from the five and -- in that stretch so I know eight to 90 it's -- time to start -- teams into the playoff pictures. The NFC east we have to hold up on the Giants haven't played that much yet in the cab with a had a tough run. The wild card and all this is the Eagles of the easiest starter last couple weeks of the season gonna be a race to the finish. I'm not so excited about the Giants -- and I think there's some trouble the Cowboys though be optimistic to win. Finally he give us -- under the radar player to watch this week. Is irrigated under the radar players of the week we start with an undrafted rookie free agents and starter seventh round pick. We're going with the third overall pick of the 2011 draft Marcel Darius this week. How -- a guy -- the third overall pick be under the radar -- because all the other rookies in the league having monster years you hear about cam knew you hear about Von Miller. AJ Green and -- and you don't Arsenal there is that last week and it was a monster game against the Redskins open Toronto. He had we'll have snacks and he anchored an offensive line it was all over the place giving John Beck trouble. -- and that defense they totaled nine sacks on the game -- four coming into the week. Can keep that going he's playing on the inside start him off the defensive end but when Kyle Williams. They moved the 320 pounder inside and he's finding a lot of success there. Marcel there's -- great rookie season haven't heard much about him but -- to make a big splash against the Jets this Sunday. The bills offense ever -- how scary they are. The defense might be scarier Darius is the key cog in the middle. All right Peter thanks so much for the inside don't forget foxwoods dot com has you covered frog football neat. I'm Brian Webber will see next.
