A bunch of us watched the games yesterday at
Chad’s Wide Right’s house. Wide Right is a Buffalo Bills fan, and if you’re a fan of football you’ll understand why I christened him with that nickname! I will say that Wide Right prepares fantastic food! His au jus meatball subs were freakin’ awesome! I couldn’t get enough of his habanero queso dip, and the hotdogs he prepared for what I’ll call ’round two’ were fantastic. I think we all ate too much and I’m certain we drank too much! It all felt like a Super Bowl party… IN WEEK TWO! I think we’re gonna have a fun season watching football… whether our teams win or lose!
Anyway… The Browns went down to Cincinnati yesterday. I was pretty confident going in that we could pull off a win, though I had some concerns Saturday night.
I believe the O line did pretty decent. They did allow a couple sacks on Weeden, but he wasn’t pressured too bad all day. He had time to throw and he threw well. After last weeks vomit inducing performance that netted Weeden a 5.1 passer rating, QB1 came out looking good: 26/37 for 322 yards, 2 TDs and 0.0000 INTs. Passer rating: 114.9. HELL YEAH WE’RE GOIN’ TO THE SUPER BOWL!!!
Just kidding!!! Though there are Browns fans out there that actually believe that… They’re dumb…
Trent Richardson was an absolute beast yesterday. He had a nice 32 yard TD run and an awesome 23 yard catch and run for a TD. I believe he’s healthy and strong. Just hope he stays that way; and he’ll be the stud RB I predicted.
Our WRs were bett… Holy shit! We had a Greg Little sighting, and not one that involved a dropped pass! He caught the ball and he got into the endzone for a TD!
Y’all don’t know how excited we were! I still have ‘Little’ faith in the WR; he needs to get more consistent.
AND….. the oft concussed Mohamed Massaquoi was our leading receiver, with 5 catches for 90 yards! Did you know that his performance yesterday, from a yardage standpoint, was 23.4% of last year’s output? For the entire season!!! Let’s not get all concussed again and keep kicking ass, MoMass!!
Two things killed us the most yesterday; leading to our 34-27 loss.
Special Teams looked like dogshit… allowing an 81 yard punt return for a TD by WR Adam Jones…
SEVEN MISSED TACKLES on that punt return…
And our defensive backfield was weak with Joe Haden serving a suspension for taking Adderall. Bengals QB Andy Dalton tossed a 10 yard TD to A.J. Green, who I feared the most…. but he also had a 44 yard TD pass to some dude named Brandon Tate and a 50 YARDER to Andrew Hawkins….
… in which the defense looked like a bunch of statues… They were horrible!
Yesterday was a huge improvement for Brandon Weeden, Trent Richardson and our offense overall after last weeks ineptitude. Our defense, however, took a step back. They gotta get their shit together before next week when the Bills come to town.
I watched a lot of the Bills trouncing of the Chiefs. Buffalo looks like a tough team. My confidence is at 0 right now… UGH!!
