Sixteen Not Sixty

Too bad football games are not 16 minutes long. If that were the case, the Browns would have escaped with their second victory of the season. The other 44 minutes were not as appealing and featured a complete mess on every side of the ball. Correction, at least special teams played well. When taking out the field goal drive, the offense produced a whopping 73 total yards of offense. Even Eric Wright, one of the best young DBs in the league, was on the wrong side of the highlight reel.

            For all of the progress the past three weeks have shown, a major setback occurred yesterday. Sure, the flu bug and the loss of the 2008 NFL tackles leader certainly did not help the situation. In addition, the reluctance to put the ball in Josh Cribbs’ hands on offense begs the question of what is going on? With the exception of Kaluka Maiava playing decent in his first career start, the rest of the team simply did show up.

            Hopefully this game says more about Green Bay being an emerging team who is on their way to the playoffs this season. With the Bears also coming off a bad loss, next week should be interesting. Now is the time for the Browns to ask themselves if they would like to build a foundation for next season or simply try to get the first pick in the 2010 draft. If they are building something, next week is the time to show it. Whatever the goals of the team are, they need to produce some kind of progress against a mediocre Bears team. If not, it might be time to simply watch basketball.
