Already Freakin’ Out about Tomorrow ~ Colts @ Browns!

Cleveland Browns v Buffalo Bills

I hate being wrong!

After the Browns offense (NOTE: I said OFFENSE; not blaming any one player here) stunk it up against the Bills last week and owner Jimmy Haslam coach Pettine benched QB1 Brian Hoyer for Ryan Leaf Johnny Manziel, I incorrectly ASSumed that Hoyer was done for the season.

Boy am I glad I was wrong this time!

On Wednesday, the Browns announced that Hoyer is starting tomorrow against the Indianapolis Colts.

This is a good decision. The team HAD to stick with the guy that got them to 7-5!

I know I’m beating a dead horse here but whatever… this offense has more issues than just at QB.

  1. We lost Pro Bowl C Alex Mack in week 6. That has directly affected both pass and run blocking.
  2. We lost Pro Bowl TE Jordan Cameron in week 7. That throws the passing game off. TEs Barnidge and Dray have filled in respectably, but Barnidge is now out with a rib injury.
  3. Pro Bowl WR Josh Gordon returned from a 10 game pot smoking suspension a couple weeks ago and still isn’t on the same page with the rest of the offense.

99% of Browns fans are pretty stupid and don’t realize how much those three issues can handcuff an offense.

All those fools jerked off in unison when Manziel took the field. They wanted to see what he could do against a Bills defense that hadn’t gameplanned for him and  whose team was up 20-3 with 12 minutes left in the game.

Manziel’s stats? 5 of 8 passing for 63 yards, 2 rushes for 13 yards and a TD. I will say this (Shhhh… don’t tell anyone): Manziel’s first drive looked pretty okay. In 3:14 he carried the Browns 80 yards in 8 plays for a TD. Dude rolls out incredibly fast and gets rid of the ball somewhat quickly.

He’s a dumbass, though.

He threw a pass into coverage to TE Jim Dray that was damn near deflected/intercepted, but caught, and all the Manziel sheep thought it was awesome. It wasn’t. Here’s a still shot of right before hew threw (click to embiggen)…

Douche

… RB Terrance West has his left hand up because he’s open… big time! If ya watch the play in real time, Manziel is totally locked on to Dray the entire time and doesn’t even see West come free off his block. There wasn’t a Bills defender within 10 yards of West; woulda been a nice TD.

Fortunately, 2 plays later Johnny Fuckface scrambled for a 10 yard TD.

UNfortunately, the idiot dove head first, white Michael Vick style, into the endzone; got hit by one of the Bills on the way in. Then he did that God awful money sign shit to celebrate…. you don’t celebrate like that when your team is losing asshole!

Manziel will never finish a complete game running like that.

On his second drive he went 4 plays for 9 yards and turned the ball over on downs. He actually got hit and fumbled on third down but the NFL wants to see Manziel succeed no matter what officials reversed the fumble call and said it was an incomplete pass. It was a fumble.

Don’t get me wrong folks, I wanna see the Browns win and get into the playoffs. I couldn’t care less who’s playing QB when that happens. Manziel ain’t the one, though.

Contrary to any excitement expressed by Browns players about Manziel providing a “spark” in last week’s loss, tiny WR Travis Benjamin had this to say about the nitwit:

We just figure, as receivers, we have to work more. If Johnny comes in the huddle and he pronounces the play wrong, we’ve got to make sure we correct it. We’ve got to make sure we correct him. Offensive linemen, tight ends, all the receivers, all the running backs, we’ve just got to make sure we’ve got to be in form when he’s in the game

Case. Closed. Manziel can’t call a freakin’ play! Hoyer’s the one!

So what about tomorrow? Shit… This might be our toughest game this year.

Colts QB Andrew Luck might be a dork but, damn, he sure can play football! He plays like Pittsburgh’s Ben Roethlisberger, except he’s faster, has a fully functioning brain and he’s never raped any women.

The Browns defense needs to pressure Luck all damn game! That dude gets too comfy and he’s  gonna throw for 400+ yards on us!

Colts RB Trent Richardson, who the Browns traded away a couple years ago, implied that he’s gonna run all over us ’cause we didn’t believe in him. He averages like 36 yards a game. Shut his ass down and don’t let him break some NFL record tomorrow.

Also look forward to other ex-Browns to try to beat us up tomorrow. Joshua Cribbs, D’Qwell Jackson and Mike Adams hope to make some sorta statement.

Just don’t let ’em Browns!

Hey Coach Pettine, if you’re reading this, how about we see some no huddle/hurry up offense tomorrow? That shit works; it’s not used nearly as often enough!

Tomorrow’s game is a must win if we’re gonna keep our playoff hopes alive.

GO BROWNS!

Monday Moanin’ ~ Browns 10 @ Bills 26 ~ R.I.P. Brian Hoyer…

Manziel

There ya have it folks! Stick a fork in him because it sounds like the Browns are gonna keep Brian Hoyer on the bench for the foreseeable future.

He got yanked early in the 4th quarter yesterday when we were down 20-3. QB2, Johnny Douchebag, went in, made a few plays and we still lost the game 26-10.

As a starter, Hoyer is 7-5 this year and as a backup, Manziel is 0-1.

Yeah, Hoyer had a shitty game yesterday. So did QBs Tony Romo, Colin Kaepernick, Cam Newton, Alex Smith, Jay Cutler and Derek Carr. Carr got benched for Matt Schaub, who was technically as good as Manziel, as the Raiders still lost.

Will any of those other QBs get benched?

Nope!

I saw quotes on Twitter from Browns coach Mike Pettine’s press conference today and it appears he’s done with Hoyer.

We’re 7-5 and still in the hunt for a playoff spot, but it sounded like coach Pettine has no faith in Hoyer any more. Dude said he’s gonna look at the film on both QBs and decide who will start Sunday when Indy comes to town.

Pettine has 15 games (what, some 900 minutes?) of film on Hoyer and 8 minutes on Manziel. Saying he has to look at film is merely a cop out…

I believe Browns owner Jimmy Haslam or GM Ray Fucking Farmer, both of whom have apparently sucked on Johnny Manziel’s dick because they drafted that asshole, have forced Pettine’s hand.

If Manziel finishes the season for Cleveland, we’ll end up with a 7-9 record.

If, somehow, the coaches and front office allow Hoyer to finish the season, we’ll prolly end up 10-6 and maybe have a shot at the playoffs.

It’s a long shot to make the playoffs, but handing the keys to the Browns to Johnny Manziel is a horrible decision.

Yesterday’s game was tough to watch, but that’s only because coach Pettine didn’t read my  last blog post in which I said to PASS on first down instead of run…

Cleveland had 31 chances from 1st down and ran on 19 (61%) of them for about 2.6 yards a carry. We became one dimensional on 1st down and the Bills put 8-9 defenders in the box to force Hoyer to throw the ball.

That’s bad coaching.

It sucks that Hoyer has to get beat up when we have issues WAY outside of QB!

GO BROWNS!

Already Freakin’ Out about Sunday ~ Browns @ Bills!

Manziel Trick Play

I didn’t have a chance to complain about our embarrassing 26-24 win over  the Falcons last week in Atlanta. Wait… WHAT?

People called that an embarrassing win. Almost lost. WE WON! Whatever you psychos!

We’re 7-4! That’s something to be proud of!

We’ve only been decisively beat twice… that was by the Jaguars and Texans J.J. Watt! The other two losses? We were in BOTH those games right ’til a last second field goal! Still losses, though.

Yeah, a few of our wins were by last second field goals, but THEY’RE STILL DAMN WINS!

We’re 7-4, Browns fans! C’mon, some of you need to calm down!

There are some nit wits out there that want to see QB2 Jon Paul Manziel, aka Johnny Fuckface, in a game this year just to see what he can do.

We are still in the playoff picture and there are actually “Browns fans” who think we should bench QB1 Hoyer for a douchebag who can’t even read a playbook! You all are idiots!

Just because the national sports media sold Manziel to EVERYONE (except me and the more intelligent crowd), doesn’t mean he shoulda been drafted by the Browns in the first round.

I understand there was a huge question mark in the offseason with Hoyer as he was still rehabbing from ACL surgery so we prolly needed to draft a QB. But not Manziel.

Rumor has it Browns owner Jimmy “Rootin’ Tootin” Haslam demanded the Manziel pick. Hell, Haslam was certainly knee deep in Jack Daniels  during the draft and picked that idiot.

In my opinion, we don’t need that kid.

As for Sunday’s game at the Bills, I’m scared shitless. Buffalo has a bad ass top five ranked defense! Like I said, the Texans J.J. Watt kicked our asses a couple weeks ago and Buffalo’s ENTIRE defensive line might mess us all up!

Cleveland is gonna have to change things up and start passing on first down, but also keep on the running game. It’s pretty well known that WR Josh Gordon is a freakin’ STUD so Hoyer needs to target him early and often to make the Bills defense honest to open up the running game for Isaiah Crowell!

It can go either way. We can win this game Sunday or we can get crushed!

Lets win this shit Brownies! I don’t want people saying, “Oh THERE’s the old Browns!”

GO BROWNS!!!

SOOOOPER BOWL! SOOOOPER BOWL! Browns 37 ~ Bills 24!

Josh Gordon Bills

Ha ha! Just kidding! Trust me, though, there are stupid Browns fans who believe that we are now Super Bowl contenders. I am not one of those Browns fans!

Playoff contender? Maybe… I wouldn’t rule it out just yet. Someone’s gotta win the AFC North and after last night’s victory over Buffalo, Cleveland sits on top at 3-2.

What about the three other AFC North teams? Cincinnati is at 2-2 but will be bitch slapped by Tom Brady and the Patriots Sunday and go to 2-3. Pick machine Joe Flacco and the 2-2 Ravens go to Miami to play a pretty solid Dolphins team. I say Baltimore gets the L and also moves to 2-3.

Pittsburgh looks like absolute dog shit this year and owns the bottom spot in the AFC North at 0-4.

Roethlisberger London

Oh shit did it feel good to write that sentence! I actually deleted and rewrote it four times!

Pittsburgh has their bye this week, so at least you Steelers fans won’t have to cry into your terrible towels until October 13th, when the Jets will beat them up!

I’ve got some thoughts I’d like to share about last night’s game…

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, “This Browns defense ain’t no joke!” We got two sacks on E.J. Manuel, then two more on Buffalo’s horrible backup QB, Jeff Tuel, after Manuel suffered a knee injury..

Oh yeah, on that E.J. Manuel injury: Browns S Tashaun Gipson didn’t cheap shot him. That hit was a result of the whole NFL/concussion thing… Gipson ain’t gonna hit him high and risk getting flagged and/or fined, so he went low… And besides that, Manuel shoulda just ran outta bounds!

Speaking of running out of bounds to avoid a shredded knee… I feel so bad for Browns QB Brian Hoyer. He grew up in North Olmsted, graduated from St. Ignatius in Cleveland and his dream was always to one day be the Browns starting QB. Sounds like a nightmare to me! However, he got to that level, looked good for a couple games and then performed a failed slide last night in which his knees buckled underneath him and his right ACL took a shit… He’s done for the season.

I have to say that QB Brandon Weeden came in and played pretty well after he got into a rhythm. Dude scared the shit outta me at the start, though…

On special teams, little guy WR, Travis Benjamin, was a real stud!

T-Benj Punt return

He returned seven punts for a total of 179 yards, setting a Browns single game record. One return led to a field goal, another was a 79 yard TD, pictured above! I love that kid!

Buffalo cut that punter this morning! Funny!

Moving forward? If Cleveland wants to continue to win games, offensive coordinator, Norv Turner, needs to somehow adjust the offense to fit QB Brandon Weeden’s style, which is the slowest pass release in the league… Right now, I dunno how that’s possible as I have no faith in Weeden.

We shall see… GO BROWNS!

 

Woo Hoo ~ Bills @ Browns… PRIME TIME!

Night Shot

I have to admit I’m a bit nervous about this game. I said yesterday I was concerned about the Indians, as Cleveland teams don’t do well in the spotlight, and they lost to Tampa Bay 4-0; their season is over…

Speaking of baseball, and I’m sorry baseball fans but, in my opinion, that shit is boring. It is exciting when a team scores, like by hitting a home run or batting in runners, neither of which the Indians could do yesterday. I guess being there live would be more exciting, but I saw all the Indians fans at the game, after Tampa Bay went up 3-0… not a lot of happiness there.

Well, the Browns season is just starting to roll; we’re now 2-2, and tied for 1st in the AFC North, after two horrible losses by a Brandon Weeden/Trent Richardson led team, followed by two nice wins by a Brian Hoyer/Josh Gordon/Jordan Cameron led team.

Not sure what to think of this matchup with Buffalo, so naturally I look at some stats to see if something stands out. Here’s what I found:

OFFENSE…

Buffalo has the 15th ranked offense in the league based on total yards. Their strength is running the ball with Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller. Jackson tweaked his knee Sunday, but says he’s good to go tonight. Spiller’s ankle is hurting him and he won’t decide if he’s playing until he gets to the stadium and tries some running. QB EJ Manuel is a rookie QB who doesn’t look horrible. Completes 57% of his passes and has 5 TDs and 3 INT in 4 games.

Cleveland has the 24th ranked offense in the league based on total yards. Believe it or not, passing is our strength…

And I don’t want to hear about us trading away RB Trent Richardson to Indy any more. He’s the 22nd ranked RB in the league for rushing yards. He’s 39th in the league for yards per carry at 3.1… He’s NOT a star and wasn’t ever our best player. Everyone’s gonna be soooo happy come May when we have Indy’s 1st round pick!

Browns QB Brian Hoyer looked great Sunday, after a sorta crappy second half against Minnesota the previous week. He’s completed about 60% of his passes and thrown 5 TDs and 3 INTs… in those two games.

DEFENSE…

Buffalo has the 28th ranked defense in terms of total yards put up against them…. most of those yards came via the air, so they’re decent against the run.

Cleveland is the 4th ranked defense! You read that right! Our defense is stout, especially against the run. Last week though, we defended the pass pretty well too!

HERE’S MY TAKE…

If Cleveland can shut down Buffalo’s bruised up running backs, and I’m sure they can, I believe they’ll force their young QB to make some mistakes throwing! Maybe future Hall of Fame, shut down CB, Joe Haden will finally get his first pick six!

But then our offense needs to score some more TDs! While Buffalo’s secondary is dinged up, their front 7 ain’t no joke! I expect a lot of pressure on Hoyer tonight… dudes gonna have to get rid of the ball fast and make some good decisions. He showed he’s capable of that Sunday against Cincinnati.

And if Buffalo’s defensive strength is against the run, THE JOKE WILL BE ON THEM,  because we have no running game! But maybe we will tonight…

I’m looking for RB Chris Ogbonnaya to have a big game tonight, on the ground AND through the air…

Chris Ogbonnaya

GO BROWNS!!!

Monday Moanin’ ~ Week Three ~ Bills 24 @ Browns 14

 

Woo hoo! We’re 0-3 now, and based on our upcoming schedule I don’t see us winning a game soon. 

Just started re-watching the game and it pissed me off. NOTE TO SELF: Don’t watch plays in slow motion…

I saw offensive linemen (I’m talking to you, Mitchell Schwartz) totally miss blocking assignments. I saw my boy, DE Jabaal Sheard, looking totally lost and out of position to tackle C.J. Spiller or rush Fitzpatrick.

I saw future Hall of Famer, Trent Richardson, hesitate and dance instead of attacking the hole. Dude’s got two kids… he clearly knows how to find the hole!

I know the Browns have their work cut out for them, with all the first and second year players on the roster, but I gotta bring up the replacement officials, if only because of one play that pissed me off…

A few plays prior to Buffalo’s first TD, they were sitting at 3rd and 8. Buffalo WR Steve Johnson CLEARLY pushed off Cleveland’s old man Sheldon Brown on a comeback route; with a ref standing there staring just 8 yards away. That non call got Buffalo a first down; they went on to score, instead of them repeating third down with a 10 yard penalty.

Greg Little continues to be terrible, dropping routine passes. I want to kick his ass, but fear I’ll lose that fight. Maybe if I dressed up like a football and attacked him I’d have a chance, because he definitely wouldn’t get his hands on me then! ZING motherfucker!

Weeden still looks okay. No QB is gonna complete all of his passes and, as a rookie, he’s been off target at times. But the dropped passes have to stop! Outside of that, I believe Weeden will clean up his game. Again… he’s a rookie.

I could continue to complain all over this page, because I’m a Browns fan and that’s what we do. But I won’t.

Here’s what I want to see from the Brownies:

  • More Josh Cribbs on offense! Even though he’s lost a step, he’s a baller. His special teams play remains strong… but get his hands on the ball some more on offense!
  • This comes from my buddy Brent The Voice: Put Weeden in shotgun with a 4 WR set. Spread the field. Stick Richardson back there to block  or release and tear some shit up! It works for other teams!
  • Quit calling Richardson’s number up the middle! Until we develop a passing game that shit ain’t gonna work. If y’all can get Richardson in space… he’s gonna get hot!
  • Richardson needs to touch the ball at least 20 times a game. Twelve touches? Asinine!
  • Rush the passer, defense!

Now… in 73 hours, Cleveland’s got Baltimore. At Baltimore. I’m scared shitless! Damn… I hate being a Browns fan… BUT…

GO BROWNS!!!

Previous weeks:

Week 2: Bengals 34 ~ Browns 27 – Our Special teams are dawgshit.
Week 1: Eagles 17 ~ Browns 16 – The sickly debut of Brandon Weeden.

Already Freakin’ Out about Tomorrow ~ Week Three ~ Bills @ Browns

My pregame thoughts:

Last week, the Bills embarrassed the Chiefs; as C.J Spiller tore shit up and ran like a madman! The week before, however, the Jets beat the snot out of the Bills. I have no clue which Bills team is coming to Cleveland tomorrow…

Here are my major concerns…

C.J. Spiller ~ Spiller only had 15 carries against the Chiefs; but for 123 yards and 2 TDs. The Chiefs suck balls, though, so I’m sort of confident the Brownies will be able to contain him…

Cleveland’s Defensive Backfield ~ I’m afraid if we stack the box to stop Spiller, we’ll become vulnerable to the big play action pass play…

Steve Johnson ~ Dude might just be wide open because of my above concern; and since Joe Haden is serving the second week of his four game suspension for rape fighting dogs getting arrested 9 times like Kenny Britt without a suspension taking Adderall.

Buffalo’s Defensive Line ~ Anchored by Mario Williams, the Bills’ D-Line is gonna give Cleveland quite a challenge.

Brandon Weeden ~ QB1 remains a concern, for me at least. He looked lost and scared in week 1, but bounced back pretty nicely in week 2. I hope week 2 Weeden shows up tomorrow!

The Browns Fans ~ Y’all are douchebags… QB2 is terrible! Lighten up and enjoy the game you idiots!

The Bills Fans ~ Y’all are douchebags… lighten up and enjoy the game you idiots! I’m a bit concerned about Chad Wide Right, Mike el Presidente, the other Mike That Loud Fucker and the other nine Bills fans going to the game tomorrow together… to tailgate… You Buffalo people are mouthy and obnoxious, just like us Browns fans! Problem is… you guys can’t just let it go! 71,000 people are gonna start the “AAAAsssshole, aaaaassshhole” chant and you’re gonna pick a fight with each and every one of ’em! Let it go, you chili-without-beans-eating whiners! You will lose and so will your Bills!

GO BROWNS!

Hug your children and love them every day
