This is your Browns/Afternoon NFL open thread.

Go Browns!

    I guess that would have made to much sense

  • james

    if they lose this game by 1 point shurmur must be fired

  • SDA

    agreed

  • whipjacka

    you’d think this would fire up the d… still as bendy as ever

  • SDA

    nice defensive adjustments

  • FishonJon

    Trent looked more like the game 1 Trent. Hesitant/indecisive. Now Hardesty is in. Clearly he’s not 100%

  • SDA

    fail!!!

  • Roosevelt

    There haven’t been any holes?

  • SDA

    we were saying the same thing. He looks a step slow

  • SDA

    OMG a blitz?

  • SDA

    was that a defensive stop? couldnt be

  • C-Bus Kevin

    They have been penalized on every single attempted return.

  • SDA

    we just said the same thing. Lack of focus

  • SDA

    omg two in a row?

  • C-Bus Kevin

    So we called timeout…to punt? Punting in that situation is already questionable. But wasting a timeout just to punt…indefensible.

    Is it just me, or does it seem like Shurmur is never ready to make an offensive call in 4th down situations?

  • SDA

    totally agree it always seems we are unprepared

  • SDA

    good thing we didn’t try for a 2 pt play earlier. I mean we could have tied it with a FG. I love our philosophy.

  • Big Z

    Anyone know why Shurmur didn’t go for 2 after the 2nd TD? I thought it would’ve been automatic.

  • SDA

    Epic fail

  • FishonJon

    Not progress, Pat.

  • Big Z

    Either way, I’m pretty sure going for 2 after the second TD is automatic. That way, it’s a 3 point game if you convert and a 5 point game if you don’t. I’m not sure why he opted out of it; it blows my mind.

  • SDA

    can we fire him now?

  • BROSEPH

    Hindsight bias. If you go for two and don’t get it and they score another TD, the worst case scenario, it’s now 21-12. If it’s late in the game you go for 2. But they did not feel it was appropriate at the time, and I would agree with them. It was still a one possession game, and the offense looked well enough that there was no reason to believe they wouldn’t score again.

  • SDA

    It would have made sense? maybe he was trying to out wit Ariens

  • SDA

    I said it before they kicked the extra point no reason not to go for the 2 pt conversion. there was no negatives
