T-Rich gains nine yards on one play and we pass on third and one. Well done Pat.

What was worse than that call, was the drop.

Another 3rd and 1 pass???? Haslam should walk down to the sideline and fire Shurmur on national tv. Better yet, he could then run the offense the rest of the game...he can't do any worse.

Could be home, away, or at Wimbley if they ever got a chance to play there for some reason; Browns come out flat nearly every single game. It just boggles the mind.

Somebody needs to tell SHUR that covering his mouth when he calls the plays isn't hiding the fact the other team knows exactly whats coming.

That was clearly the play call, since there was no hesitation and he didn't look elsewhere. Shurmy, Shurmy, Shurmy... what the fuck, dude?

Yes, but you can take comfort in knowing that the Browns had to take TWO timeouts on that series to get plays like that one into the game. These are well-thought-out bad plays.

I swear, we use at least two timeouts a game because we can't get plays called in a timely fashion. UGH!

You'd think that perhaps we'd only be down one score with it being 14-6. However, we know that Shurmur will never go for the 2.

If we didn't run the ball up the middle on that 1st play we could have had a few cracks at the endzone.

Running that ball on 1st down resulted in the loudest yell in our house this season. That's a fireable offense. If only I was standing on the sidelines and could jam an ice pick into the back of Shurmur's neck.

Mentioned this before - unfortunately like 100 times, but the GD 2nd and 1 runs are worse than the 3rd and 1 passes - and those are bad.

Good holy Christ, you've got the 28th ranked defense. You're gonna need points. You've got a challenged offense. You were stupid enough to draft a RB 4th to pick up fucking 3rd and ones SO YOU CAN TAKE YOUR SHOTS ON 2nd AND ONE TO MAKE SOMETHING HAPPEN. All year they are running the dive on 2nd and 1.

And for the same stupid drafting reason your run the fucking ball on 3rd and one. If nothing more than to establish your stupid 1980's identity.

GD no timeout havin' worst play callin' thank God Romeo's still in the league hump.

Feel bad for the young players, cause their ability to move forward in this game is in the hands of a rube.
