Shurmur Finally Takes Blame for Mistakes in Loss

Pat Shurmur finally is stepping up and taking blame, saying the mistakes from the Christmas Eve loss to the Ravens is on him.

Two unreal blunders on Saturday in Baltimore were costly in a 20-14 loss to the Ravens. Browns backup quarterback Seneca Wallace botched a scoring opportunity at the end of the first half and rookie defensive tackle Phil Taylor jumped offside on fourth down in the final two minutes to seal Baltimore’s win.

Shurmur said there are no excuses and the Browns “have to play smarter.”

Shurmur also had no update on quarterback Colt McCoy, who hasn’t been cleared to practice since suffering a concussion December 8th against Pittsburgh. Shurmur said McCoy took part in team meetings Monday and the team won’t know until Wednesday if he’ll be able to practice.

    Too little too late. How can the players respect a coach that a throws everyone else under the bus for losses, (yes I understand players need to execute)and b looks like he is ready to cry at a moments notice. Shurmur has been so in deep over his head he could have fixed the BP oil leak while he was passing it. Do we give him another year, only if we hire a Off Coord who plays to win, not play to not lose. Fix the line and get someone to throw to in the reciever corps. Beef up the LBes and another DE. You have to get some from FA, we cannot fix all the holes with the draft. I would prefer to get an owner that actually cares about football rather than soccer in Europe.
