In Topic: Our Defense Is Worse Than Our Offense

Even if the Browns weren't offsides on the missed field goal I have no doubt with the defense I saw today the Chargers would have just went right down the field and scored in OT.


Amen to that!!!!!!!!!!

We did "hold" them to 450 yards though.

This one from Tom Reed:


BEREA, Ohio – The Browns were blindsided by a TMZ report Tuesday anonymously quoting three offensive starters saying they would prefer Johnny Manziel as their quarterback over Josh McCown.

The club has issued no formal statement although receiver Andrew Hawkins took to Twitter calling the report, "%1000 made up."

Here's how bad things are for the Browns, who own a 1-2 record and begin a brutal stretch of their schedule Sunday in San Diego:

The report might act as a blessing because it shifts focus away from other problems ailing the club. Would Manziel's presence Sunday have limited the defense's 14 missed tackles or helped the offensive line block better on a first-and-goal from the 1 against the Raiders?

Many of the Browns' best players and units are underachieving. Some of the schemes coaches are putting them in deserve questioning. The next two days in Berea, however, will be dominated by the TMZ story in part because the Browns are idle on Tuesdays.

Coach Mike Pettine will be grilled on the topic. So will players. McCown or Manziel? Is there dissent inside the locker room? Is McCown impacted by teammates allegedly "furious" over Pettine's decision to return him to the lineup after Manziel helped the Browns beat the Titans, 28-14 with a pair of long touchdown passes to Travis Benjamin?

Let's put aside questions over the validity of the quotes for a second and put on our common-sense hats.

Wouldn't it be human nature for some teammates to think Manziel is the better option, especially with the improvement he's making? In announcing his decision to start McCown last week Pettine acknowledged there "might be some difference of opinions" in a locker room where you're never getting players "100 percent on board" with big choices.

If Manziel's most vocal critic, Merril Hoge, said the Browns should stick with No. 2 you know there are teammates who feel the same way. Pettine isn't paid to make popular decisions, but NEOMG's Mary Kay Cabot reported Tuesday the locker room generally remains behind McCown, citing his experience and veteran leadership.

My take: Manziel becomes the starter within a few weeks assuming the losses continue. The organization will have ample time to evaluate whether he's the Browns' quarterback of the future.

Want to here the worst of it??? On one of the downs (I forget 

which one) the Raiders only had 10 men on the field and we 

STILL could not punch it in.

Michael Vick shouldn't be in the league. If he plays against us I hope we find our pass rush and knock out his teeth.

The Browns have a pass rush????????
