"More games are lost than won in the NFL." - Bill Belichek
At this point, as a Browns fan, I only tune in to figure out how they are going to find a way to lose. I hate this team.
Defense gave up 12 points. Offense gave up 14 points. That's next-level losing right there.
Pittsburgh only needed 1 play - a 71 yard TD that was more yards than they had gained the entire game to that point, to win the game. The rest of the time they were much better off if the Browns had the ball. The Browns defense had a better chance of scoring.
You script the first 15 plays. Practice them over and over again. Very first play, receiver and QB are not on the same page. Pick 6.
Stupid penalties. Monumentally stupid. Blowing up a guy on a fair catch? Too many men on the field on a punt return (wasted a time out to avoid the 5 flags thrown). TWO facemask penalties by the QB???? I've never seen 2 in the same year.
Ball security? Who needs that? Make the line to gain on 4th and 1, only to fumble the ball away. Seriously? Everyone was worried about the rookie RT vs TJ Watt - Jones actually did a great job. That didn't make up for the turn-style they have playing left tackle and the guards were beaten like a red-headed step child all game.
Punt returner who gives up over half the field in field position by refusing to catch the damn ball.
<not stupid, just terribly unlucky> - lose one of the best running backs in the league for the year and perhaps for his career. After that happened, I refused to even watch the replay, but some a@@hole in my text chat group sent the picture. Nauseating.
Despite all of that, a chance to win the game except the Head Coach/OC/Play-calling Mensa, who presumably has watched the same game I am, refuses to adjust as the opposition defense blitzkrieg's the QB like it's the Germans bombing London.
Can't wait to see what this team does next week.
In total agreement minus the fair catch interference. It was a weak ass signal and he was in position to run rather than giving up the play so a gunner who just got shoved out of bounds couldn't possibly know.
Peoples Jones with possibly the worst round of returning without fumbling in NFL history.
