Shurmur: Mohamed Massaquoi is Making Plays

[Mohamed Massaquoi] is looking better and I expect a lot from him. He expects a lot from himself, I’m sure when you go ask him, he’ll tell you that. I see a much healthier Massaquoi. Mo looks good, he’s making plays. I think he’s getting comfortable with all of the quarterbacks and he’s having a good camp. I think we remember seeing him coming into camp last year injured and he had to fight through getting healthy before he could show us what he can really do. Now he is beyond that, knows a lot more about what we’re doing and it’s showing up.

– Cleveland Browns head coach Pat Shurmur, Wednesday, following the team’s mandatory workout. Massaquoi is coming into his fourth season with the team, having caught no more than 36 passes in a season. The former second-round selection is thought to be in a make-or-break year as the team has drafted multiple receivers in attempt to bolster the position.

    Kind of need Mo Mass, Cameron, and Benjamin to step up this year.  Mix in good years from those three with Little, Moore and Watson and we may look like a football team.  In Weeden We Win!

  • Foghorn Leghorn

    Lets see how good he looks when he can actually get hit after the catch.  Im sort of done pretending Mo Mass could be a legit #1 or #2.

    So Mo Mass is looking good and Greg Little “looks like Justin Blackmon” (hopefully when he isn’t driving)

    well, at least there wasn’t a “didn’t have a full offseason to learn the new offense” excuse.  Instead, Shurmy-Shurm went with the tried and true “he was injured so we were not able to accurately judge his ability”. 

    Not that I’d expect them to admit perhaps overrating their receivers last year was a HUGE mistake, because that wouldn’t really solve anything, but just stop lying.  Can’t he just say “he’s looking good. Really worked hard to pick up the offense this offseason. We’re hoping for big things” ?  Why the need to go off into a BS tangent about injuries, building in excuses where they aren’t even needed?Learn when to just shut up. The diarrhea of the mouth in Berea is stupefying.

  • I don’t remember seeing Little’s BAC, did it match Blackmon’s?  BA-ZING.

    What multiple receivers?
