    Let this Sink In

    Almost 13 minutes ToP difference in the game.

    ALMOST A FULL QUARTER the Browns possessed the football. I lay most of the blame on the offense. One for 9 on 3rd down is way short of varsity play.

    But it wasn't all negative. Good mix of plays on offense. A few more passes downfield (but DJ needs to shut up about getting the ball!). Run blocking modestly improved. Special teams on point. Trubisky had better throws, just not enough of them.

    Defense needs a long rest. 0-6 with Watt on defense says a lot.

    Outcome not completely a surprise though.

    DJ dropped two passes. Harris played better but our offense and running game seemed to work better with Warren. Too bad his shovel pass big play was called back. The OL played better in general...for our standards.
    The offense needs a RB capable of hitting big plays in the rushing and passing department, and two new starting OL. The run D needs at DT/NT and new ILB to stop the run. Better play calling / coaching is badly needed. Time to put them all on the shopping list for the next draft / offseason because they are not changing this year. That much I'm fairly confident of.

    Yes, I think the stupid, stupid penalty on Chucks Okorafora really turned the tide of the game.

    That penalty was a back breaker. Why do you fall on a player when he is already down. We had their defense on its heels and it negated a 30-yard play.

    It doesn't have to sink in! Watching the game, especially the 2nd half, I could feel the TOP difference being burned into my retinas. It was sheer torture watching this team in the 2nd half.

    The offense couldn't do ANYTHING. And the defense couldn't stop ANYTHING. Just awful.

    The O line takes the bulk of the heat but the D line sucks. They should be embarrassed! Last week the Patriots ran 12 out of 13 plays on the ground and ate up 6 1/2 minutes to end the game. Last night the Browns went on a late 11 play, 80 yard drive, with all but 1 play being a run play. Weak.

    Without Watt, the entire defense is average or below. He's clearly the MVP of the D. His QB pressure makes the DBs look good. His presence in general makes the line work better.
