Browns fan, thank God the Indians are taking it to Boston and the Association is about to fire up with the Cavs getting ready to defend their title, because I’m not sure things have ever been more miserable with the Browns. And that’s saying a helluva lot.
Stop me if you’ve heard this one before, but Cleveland lost yesterday and they lost their starting quarterback yesterday. And their backup, briefly. So to recap, they’ve lost five games and four quarterbacks this season. Absolutely incredible.
And the way they lost Cody Kessler was peak Browns – he took a snap on his own 10-yard line, dropped back to the five to pass, was hit while throwing a backwards pass that was behind his running back and bounced out of the end zone for a safety. That’s right – injured throwing a pass that turned into a safety. You can’t get more Browns than that.
Then Terrelle Pryor took a couple snaps. Then Charlie Whitehurst came in, got banged up, went out and Pryor took a few more snaps, before Whitehurst came in again. But it didn’t matter if they had Otto Graham playing yesterday, they weren’t winning that game. And not just because it was against the Patriots, but because they are the Browns. And they don’t win.
They’re 3-23 in their last 26 games. And that’s not a q.b thing. That’s an organizational thing. It takes a special brand of horrible from top to bottom to lose 23 of 26 games in the NFL. From the owner all the way down to the dude selling hot dogs. Actually, that’s not fair; the dude peddling the dogs is actually good at his job.
And didn’t Terrelle Pryor say recently, they were going to win out? I think he was trying to saying they weren’t going to win again, and just misspoke. Because this crew is 0-16 bad: bad enough to run the table in reverse.
And assuming Charlie Whitehurst can go next week, they’re actually looking at their 6th different starting quarterback in 8 games and their sixth loss this season.
Don’t get me wrong. Browns fans have suffered enough. I’m not rooting for failure. I’m just saying don’t be surprised when it happens.
