The Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves

There was never a doubt about Sunday. It was a loss in April when the schedule released, a loss during training camp, and a loss now. The way the Browns lose is concerning. When the talent isn’t meeting expectations, turnovers and penalties are mounting, and head scratching decisions are made on the sideline the blameContinue reading “The Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves”

Browns poised for a turnaround….next week

No matter how optimistic about the season, few Browns fans looked at Week 8 and predicted a win. With the season in flux, @New England this week is dispiriting. In need of a confidence boost off the bye week, no game has seemed more like a loss going in. The Patriots have been surgical thisContinue reading “Browns poised for a turnaround….next week”

Cleveland Browns need a Head Examination

Talent alone doesn’t win football games. In 18 years, how many Patriots’ teams were the most skilled in the league? Maybe 2007? They own six rings and have been to 13 AFC title games in those 18 years because they are better prepared, execute the game plan, and don’t take plays for granted. Bill Belichick’sContinue reading “Cleveland Browns need a Head Examination”

I Got Issues

Will the Real Baker Mayfield Please Stand Up

Baker Mayfield is lost, and he’s running from the light. Many want to pin the loss Sunday night on Freddie Kitchens, and he deserves blame. But this L is Mayfield’s. You cannot win in the NFL with poor quarterback play. The Browns have proved this for 20 years. You can hand wring and fist stompContinue reading “Will the Real Baker Mayfield Please Stand Up”

Browns take Baby Steps

In a few weeks, there’s a chance we’ll look back on the Browns’ performance Monday night and see where the seeds of improvement were planted. While far from a dominant game, especially offensively, they played as a team, more than in week 1. Lost in the excitement of the talent acquired over the last twoContinue reading “Browns take Baby Steps”

What the Hell

This was the worry since they hired Freddie Kitchens to take over as head coach of the Cleveland Browns. Would his lack of experience cost the team games? Would he be able to handle the collection of egos acquired by John Dorsey? Week One wasn’t great. Too many penalties. 18 is obnoxious. The Browns lackedContinue reading “What the Hell”
