Boy, it looks like Josh Gordon is the real deal doesn’t it? At the beginning of the season, we were all on the Jordan Cameron bandwagon as he was dominating opposing defenses but as soon as Jason Campbell came in, Cameron went back to simply being the brother of Matt Leinart’s baby momma. Not Gordon. Gordon missed the first two games of the season due to suspension and is still 5th in the NFL in receiving yards. He is ahead of names like Dez Bryant, Brandon Marshall, and Demaryius Thomas, none have which have missed games this season. So not only is Gordon dealing with Brandon Weeden and Jason Campbell on a weekly basis, but it’s not exactly like there are many (ahem, any) weapons anywhere else on the Browns roster outside of Cameron to take attention from Gordon. He is doing this with the sole focus of the defense. Man, imagine if he would have been traded to a team with a real support system. That is just one of the take-aways from week 12’s action, here are some more!
Note 1: Bustin Bronco
- He was a former number one pick who had become a running joke because of injuries and flat out poor performance but Knowshon Moreno has found the light bulb. (haha, running joke… get it) Culminating this last week with a career high 224 yards on, you ready, 37 rush attempts Moreno is having a career year and is a perfect complement to Peyton Manning. Excellent in pass protection, solid out of the backfield, and now is finally running well. Monte Ball was expected to become the man in an awesome system but there is no reason to replace a relatively young, 26, and spry, under 800 carry carries to date, at this point or in the near future.
Note 2: New England Carousel
- When you think you know, you have no idea. It looked like Aaron Dobson was turning into a safe start for Tom Brady. After totaling 228 yards and 3 TDs in the past 3 games Dobson was poised for a good game in a shootout with the Pats. Instead, Dobson got benched again for Kenbrell Thompkins and did not have a target for the first time all season. Julian Edleman popped back up to the tune of 9 catches for 110 yards and 2 TDs, and the message is clear. Start Gronk every week, good luck with the recs.
Note3: Ray Rice
