I’ve said it all along, that Crennel is too soft. Change his scheme or get rid of him. Your players aren’t your buddies, they are your employees. Make them work. The stupid, unnecessary penalties are a huge problem. These players are old enough to know the rules.
If not, teach them. That’s what coaches are for. The Browns got plenty of boos today. It was a mixture of everything. Bad play choice, penalties, lack of defense, lack of offense, missed tackles (several on the same play), DROPPED PASSES FROM EDWARDS, sloppy and loose coverage by the DB’s and safeties, Anderson was true to form (11 of 24 … that’s 45% completion %), running the ball the Browns averaged over 5 yards a carry (why only run 18 times?), both kickoff and punt return teams looked terrible, Cowboys had 3 receivers over 82 yards in receptions. Edwards didn’t even make a good effort today.
I honestly think the biggest problem is Crennel. He gives the players too much time off. I don’t think he works them hard enough. I saw 2 or 3 runs by Lewis where he worked his tail off by keeping those legs pumping and carrying defenders with him. What did the rest of the team do? Next to nothing!! Where was that Multi Million $$$ defensive line we are supposed to have? I think it’s time the coaches get off their duffs and create a football team here in Cleveland, instead of a boys day out.
I heard one of the announcers mention the lack of conditioning when Edwards came back to the huddle panting like crazy. These players are making millions of dollars to do something they enjoy doing. Make them earn their money. Work their butts off. They obviously need to be in better shape.
I also think you better have Quinn ready to go. I think DA will implode here shortly. I am not a DA fan as you can tell. Sure he had 29 TD’s, 3800 yards passing last year but he also had one of the lowest completion % in the NFL and 19 ints (which was 3rd most). The last 2 games alone he threw 5 picks. 4 against the Bengals in the next to last game of the year. DA is not going to improve much more.
When you see that DA is not doing anything and he isn’t moving the team, you need to get Quinn in. I am not some little teenie bopper waiting for Quinn to get in. I am a Die Hard Browns fan who has been attending Browns games since I was 3 yrs old. That’s 48 years I have stuck with the Browns through think and thin. We started off thin (very thin) today. Let’s hope it gets a lot thicker next week against our rivals. GO BROWNS !!!
