What is it with fans? Especially Cleveland fans. Bold and underline Browns fans!
Why is it that there HAS to be a scapegoat and that ONE person seems to be the reason the Browns fail
How about a little thing called execution?
The calls always stink if they don't work.
How was the execution on that 3 & 1 play? Did the Saints know that play was coming? Or was there missed blocks?
How about the defense making a play on 3rd down once and a while and getting the O back on the field
Sorry, I'm not looking for scapegoats 1 game into the season

Maybe it is we are sick of seeing the same things over and over again, resulting in the same results (bad ones)
I didn't take it as Carthon was the ONE person to blame. As a matter of fact, I think Rich said RAC should be more responsible than Carthon, and he also called out the play of the players.
Isn't the job of offensive coordinator responsible for the execution of the offensive players?
Especially when the don't work TWICE in a row.
On the first one, Vickers had a hole he could of cut into and made the yard, probably. Terrell Smith almost punched him in the face when he say he never cut it up behind him. He just let them string him along to the sideline. To me it was even more reason to NOT call the same play on the next series.
Backs against the wall all day, they still limited the Saints to 19 points and only 1 TD. I don't think today is the day to question the play of the only decent unit on the roster.
I wasn't looking for them. They pretty much stood over there and waved their arms calling attention to themselves. Unforutnately, it appears that they are on Gilligan's Island and their is no rescue planes in sight.

I didn't see almost the first 3 quarters of the game and I'm not saying that MO doesn't share in the blame. Sounds like there were better options. But we are asking for 1 yard here right? This wasn't the call on 3rd and long. Is asking the O to get 1 yard on a running play too much to ask?

It would be different if the play was called to run between the tackles....if that would have been the case, the line is clearly at fault there for not getting a year. But, stringing out a play where you have your FULLBACK run 15 yards to get 1 yard? That is stupid. And, a horrendous call. TWICE.

Really? Mo is responsible when guys don't hold blocks, fumble, throw stupid interceptions, hold the ball too long, move on the wrong snap counts and other penalties? Tough job.

Continue to be patient and hope this was an aberation?

What happens if we lose to the Bengals and Ravens the next two weeks and start 0-3? We'll likely be touchdown or more underdogs in both.
If by chance we are 0-3, and then LOSE to Oakland (one of the worst teams in the league)....the shit officially has hit the fan.
Return to Cleveland Browns & The NFL
