The first play after the kickoff, for Baltimore, was a 19 yard completion to Mason. There wasn’t a defender within 7 yards of him. Shortly after that, D’Qwell gets an int. It looked for a while that the Browns were going to give the game away. DA steps away from center with the ball and trips and falls. For some unknown reason, when the Browns are 2nd and 10 or more, Chud likes to call a run up the middle. Later, in the 2nd quarter they had a 2nd and 15 and Chud calls Lewis up the middle for a whopping 2 yard gain. Let’s mix it up a little more Chud.
Harrison takes a screen pass in for a 19 yard TD. Browns run a blitz and forget to cover a wide open Mason for a first down. Adams then comes up with an int. The Browns have 2 illegal procedure calls in the same series when DA was in the shotgun and the center failed to snap the ball. Zastudil knocks off a 31 yard punt but Baltimore does nothing with it. There is no pass rush at all yet for the Browns. 10-7 Browns at the half.
DA throws and int after the ball bounces off the receiver deep in their own territory. 1st and goal for Baltimore. The next Browns series DA throws the ball right into the hands of Reed for another int. Penalties are biting the Browns in the butt again. Adams gets called for unsportsmanlike conduct. DA goofs around and gets a delay called against the Browns.
What is going to take to get DA out of there? KO and punt coverage stink today. Shaffer completely misses making contact with the Baltimore def lineman for a sack on DA. Browns are playing like a pee wee team. Defensive line has no rush or run stopping ability. Alex Hall comes up with a sack, finally. Today has been such a disaster. They did not give anyone any reason to think that the Browns will even be a decent team this year.
Another int for DA. My GAWD, what is it going to take to get some of these idiots out. DA is “NOT” a pro QB. Crennel is “NOT” a head coach. Tucker is “NOT” a defensive coordinator. With the 2nd and 15 runs up the middle, Chud is “NOT” and offensive coordinator either. The Browns have the talent on this team. It’s really too bad that this coaching staff is destroying them. Injuries, coaching, bad play calls, bad performance and everything else is wrong.
After a 10-6 finish last year and 3 of those 6 losses are games we had in the bag and should have won, things have obviously regressed. Lerner is going to have to clean house this year. Like I said, we have the talent now we need the coaching staff. If we lose to the Bengals next week, I will concede the playoffs this year. I’m beginning to think that my “fictional” post last week about seeing Stallworth in week 13 may not be fiction. One last note … would someone please ask Andre Knott if DA is still the man?
