Everyone likes running back depth, Jay likes it [Jay’s Note: Can confirm, I do like it.], Tehol loves it smothered in onions and soy sauce. You get the point, everyone needs it, wants it, covets it. How about owning someone who is getting glanced over this week because in some situations there is a better waiver wire add on the same team. Crazy to think about, even better to rationalize. So when all the stat heads and waiver jockeys scour the waiver wire and grab the Titans RB1 in Bishop Sankey (if he isn’t owned, of course), turn your gaze to Terrance West. The Brown outcast, who, guess what? Gets the Browns this week. It’s like a made-for-TV movie on the Hallmark channel starring Jaleel White as Terrance West and Malcolm Jamal Warner as Sankey. It’s called Running Titans and it’s playing this week on Sunday only in select fields… okay, okay, it’s on one field, and it’s in Cleveland. So who wants to buy in on some revenge game lovin’? That was rhetorical…

So, Terrance West gets to suck the marrow out of a battered and bruised Browns defense that was run over by the Jets last week to the tune of 158 yards. Granted, and in my favor of the argument, is the game was a blowout. Guess what? Does anyone think that this game will be anything close to that game? I mean a 34-17 game is a stretch, but 28-10 sounds tasty. My point is this game is going to be run into the ground before the 4th quarter starts. The Browns, like everyone else, now have tape of Marcus Throwiota. He can throw the ball and it doesn’t have to be in a spread type offense. The Titans running game was basically not needed/used to it’s utmost capabilities last game after being buoyed to a huge lead early and a run to the pile type of YPC. They still managed to run 32 times, 13 by West himself. Bishop may have gotten the glory, but this week it will be the garbage picker delight.
Nothing is better than a revenge game. After not really ever getting a fair shake in Cleveland, West is going to be out to prove something. That, and he is a skilled wordsmith and wasn’t what they thought he was… even if it may be as a garbage timer. I don’t think he is primarily a garbage guy, but if the game gets out of hand, I can forsee the Titans feeding him often. So what are we expecting versus a Cleveland team that is bad-to-average, at best, versus the run, and are an abomination on offense whether they are lead by the helicopter or the other participant of the “OvO” tattoo club? The Titans won’t be catapulted to an early lead based on turnovers this week, they are going to earn it. Earn it over the ground, and through the air.
Smokey predicts: 18 CAR, 84 YDS, 1 TD and 2 REC, 14 YDS.
