Basically, the Browns are just better than we are .... team and coaches and QB. Our intensity went South after the 1st quarter. Is this a sign of the team's lack of confidence in themselves and their coaches? WR - Grade = C+. They weren't bad but, they weren't as good as they should be. Our WR's have shown the ability to be an elite group and they need to bring it every game. AJ didn't bring it today. Was part of that scheming and the coaches (and AJ's) inability to adjust during the game? TE - Grade= B. Yes, OD fumbled the ball but, that didn't cost us the game. They did a better job of getting him involved today. Oline - Grade= C. Running game was okay, pass protection a little shaky. Our oline is what it is ... mediocre on its better days. QB - Grade = C-. Last week Matt looked pretty good .... today he looked pretty mediocre. Today, as in most games, he under threw passes, stepped right into a sack, missed open receivers, etc. I am beginning to think that he cannot put the team on his shoulders and win games. He has to be a manager surrounded by very good playmakers on the line, WR, and RB .... and a good scheme and coaches able to adjust during the game. Looks to me like the only one he has are the WR's. Matt Schaub, 9 TD's & 9 INT's ....... Derek Anderson, 22 TD's & 11 INT's ........ no Matt Schaub is not our savior and never will be. RB - Grade= C+. Running game was okay but, for PETE's sake, please never pitch the ball to Dayne again like ANYBODY in the whole world believes he can run outside!! This is not good coaching ... period. I told you that EchoDude would be forever banned to the bench didn't I? We are now forever stuck with Ron Dayne until he dies or Kubes moves on. FB - Grade= C. Good blocking but, I feel we are under utilizing our talent here. DLine - Grade= C-. Yes, MW got a sack ... only because he was totally not blocked ... the 1st Brown to touch him was the QB. Last week I talked about consistency and the only thing consistent about our dline is inconsistency. Basically, our dline from end to end is mediocre, and that's a fact. If you noticed, when the Browns put pressure on Schaub they were hitting him. When we put pressure on Anderson, it was because we were getting close ...... a HUGE difference. MLB - Grade= C+. Demeco made some plays but, was tackling down field too often. OLB - Grade= D. Did they play today? CB - Grade= C-. Too much space between them and the WR's. The Brown's DB's were generally all over our receivers, our DB's were just somewhere in the immediate vicinity. S - Grade= C-. See CB above. ST - Grade= D-. The only positive ... we didn't allow a big return. Coaching - Grade= C-. Offensive scheme improving overall but, inability to adjust to the game on both sides of the ball is apparent. Pitching to Dayne to run outside... are you kidding me? Did the Bears ever pitch to the Frig to run outside? Just plain ole bad coaching. You know, back in the old days, when teams ran the ball 2/3 of the time and threw only when they had to a defense could be a "bend don't break" style and be effective. But, with today's high powered offenses they just pick defenses like that apart and march up and down the field and slowly kill you. Get my point? I can now see the team between 7-9 and 8-8 and, despite my complaining, we are better than the past few years. Okay that's my take on it, what's yours?
