Who caught your eye? Did someone stand out? Who blew it? That’s what were interested in this morning. Winners and losers.
Ugh. The Browns loss yesterday to the Packers had a familiar look to it. Which means we might struggle to find anything positive.
LOSER: Brandon Kyle Weeden. Yes, there was a point in the game where Weeden completed a few passes in a row and moved the Browns a little. Too little, too late however. Weeden looked awful completing only 40% of his passes. He missed several open targets and had the announcing crew bemoaning his lack of quick decision making. We even saw a sequel to the infamous ‘underhand flip’.
WINNER: Travis Benjamin. Benjamin was given a chance to return a kick-off, something fans and the media have been asking about for weeks. Benjamin fielded the kick in the back of the end zone and scampered 86 yards to set the Browns up in great field position. Benjamin didn’t get another chance.
LOSER: Tie between Josh Gordon/his shoes/gameday staff. Seriously? Did you catch the slip and fall montage? What’s the deal Gordon? Try some other spikes. Or give a crap. One of the two would help.
WINNER: Jordan Cameron. Seven more catches and another touchdown. Forty-five catches and six touchdowns on the year. That’ll do Jordan.
LOSER: Marqueis Gray/Norv Turner. I think I could be done with the wildcat experiment.
LOSER: Pass rush. Second game in a row that the Browns really didn’t get any pressure on the opposing quarterback. There was one sack, and Chris Owens split it with Paul Kruger on a cornerback blitz.
I could go on for a while, but it’s your turn. Who are your winners and losers?
