Measure of Truth

Throw records out the window. Turn off the hot water in the showers. The six days leading to the game have become known as rivalry week. This is generally the time when a team digs deep, formulates a game plan and finds any way it can to come out on Sunday ready to battle. A special teams touchdown combined with causing four turnovers on defense was simply not enough. Even when the play calling strayed from the usual run it up the gut, a nice wildcat-featured drive did not end in the desired result of putting something on the board. Another drive that produced a touchdown was the offensive highlight of the day.

            This was the week where the Browns had the opportunity to make a statement. They had just shed the winless monkey a week after an overtime thriller and those two games seemed to be pointing to an improving future. Sunday’s game was a true measurement of where the team was stood in comparison to an established organization. While the Browns certainly did not end their day like the Titans, they could not do anything at the end of the game to get back in it. Their final five drives netted 45 yards, two punts and three turnovers.

            This has been the Cleveland Browns story of the season. They have great special teams and a defense that will allow them to stay in the game. When the offense goes in to sloth-mode and does little to move, the result will not be positive. Maybe the fact that the Browns are tied for most passes dropped in the NFL is a part of the problem. All of the fans that wanted to see Braylon leave got their wish and yet dropped passes are still happening. While the Browns are showing sings of improvement, there is still much to be desired. With a desperate Green Bay team coming up this Sunday, let’s hope the improvement can go from baby steps to real progress.
