(Cleveland Plain Dealer)   Browns running back says he's confused with the team's playcalling. Specifically the part where the team is calling plays to throw to a guy with hands harder than Chinese algebra   (cleveland.com) divider line

Hey at least your team calls plays.
The Lions offensive playcall sheet in its entirety:

Short pass
Sack
2 yard run
False start, followed by short pass

Yeah, what was that about? Can any Browns fans enlighten me as to why Edwards was seemingly unable to catch passes Sunday?

And that was just an awful, awful game. I believe one Texans blog described it as "like watching two old fat people fark."

He brings up a good point. Why would you call mostly pass plays with a rookie QB who has a broken finger, receivers that couldn't catch an STD in a sorority house, and a running game that's averaging 5.8 yards a felony.

Gee, Jamal Lewis complaining about play calling? There's a shock. That's all he did his last 2 years in Bmore. He cried all the time because he needed 30 carries a game to be effective.

Enjoy it, Cleveland.

Braylon Edwards is going to New York!!

They invited him to drop the ball on New Years Eve.

The Browns' mistake is underusing Jerome Harrison.

That is all.

That's just one mistake in the mighty cavalcade of fail that makes up the Cleveland Browns.

FTA: Lewis, who fumbled the ball away on the Browns' first drive after a blindside hit and then had a botched exchange with quarterback Derek Anderson in the fourth quarter, carried the ball only twice in the first half, but gained 13 yards.

When you are responsible for turning the ball over during the game, STFU about play calling.

Ha ha subby, you fail at life! Chinese Algebra is the most easily understood concept of the entire field of the most sacred Mathematics and Sciences. Too bad your weakling Creationist mind cannot handle such difficult concepts! People like you must be destroyed! This world starts and ends with Science!

I read that as "Cheese Algebra". weird.

Only_A_Lad: Yeah, what was that about? Can any Browns fans enlighten me as to why Edwards was seemingly unable to catch passes Sunday?


It is completely mental at this point. He was trying to do too much to start the season and now it's all in his head.

I thought it was just a temporary thing, resulting from missing so much time in the preseason. The question now is: can he recover from this? If he can't... then this is the situation next year:

QB: We have Quinn and Anderson, neither of which have done much to blow away all the critics. This time next year, we may be looking to the draft.

RB: Lewis is getting old. He's no longer explosive, and he's lost his "sure-hands" (he doesn't fumble too much... but he's not as good as he used to be). Harrison is nice, but I'm not sure if he's a #1 back.

WR: Stallworth isn't really a #1. And if Braylon can't be... we've got nothing.

TE: Winslow is disgruntled, frequently hurt and he's already taken quite the beating in his career. If the team goes to rebuild mode, I think he'd be crippled before the rebuilding ends.

OL: What the hell happened to last year's dominance? Joe Thomas... what the hell, man?

DL: We're okay

LB: We're... decent. We could use a playmaker, a guy who can either be an enforcer over the middle or a guy who can rush the QB on blitzes.

DB: HELP!

I plus oned ya subby. I had never heard that phrase before, laughed when I read it, and plan to use it at the next opportunity so I dont forget it.

i'm not sure why. quinn has only played in 3 games so far, and he's got a busted finger which is hindering his throwing. young qbs can't all be matt ryans, they take time to develop and need at least a full season or two before anything can really be determined one way or the other.

Hehe, he'd even drop passes when he was wide open on 4th and 1 late in the game while in college.

No chance. The only way that you draft a QB is if Savage is fired and that is not happening. He staked his reputation (and a first round pick) on Quinn and the Anderson contract was considered a coup.

Nah, it'll be at least a year before they draft another QB...depends on what Quinn does next year...

RB: Lewis is getting old. He's no longer explosive, and he's lost his "sure-hands" (he doesn't fumble too much... but he's not as good as he used to be). Harrison is nice, but I'm not sure if he's a #1 back.

This is the most likely skill position that they'd go to the draft for. Though if they don't spend a first or second rounder on one, the back probably won't be very good...

WR: Stallworth isn't really a #1. And if Braylon can't be... we've got nothing.

Stallworth was supposed to be the number 2 guy in an Edwards/Stallworth/Jurevicius/Winslow combo. That should've been intimidating. 50% of the reason it's not is Braylon's dropsies. The rest is the Cleveland Staph Monster. They need to address that, and quick.

TE: Winslow is disgruntled, frequently hurt and he's already taken quite the beating in his career. If the team goes to rebuild mode, I think he'd be crippled before the rebuilding ends.

And the reason they need to address the Cleveland Staph Monster quick is that 1. It discourages free agents from signing here. 2. It discourages good players from staying here.

OL: What the hell happened to last year's dominance? Joe Thomas... what the hell, man?

The o-line's as good as last year, I think. The problem is that the Anderson-Edwards Experience covered up most of the flaws, such as a really bad right side of the line.

DL: We're okay

I respectfully disagree on that point. Shaun Rogers is the only good player that we've got, and he'll probably be taking the rest of the season off now that we're out of it.

LB: We're... decent. We could use a playmaker, a guy who can either be an enforcer over the middle or a guy who can rush the QB on blitzes.

...no. Not one linebacker Cleveland has is even close to decent. If Leon Williams was as good as everyone makes him out to be, he'd be starting now. Andra Davis is old, Willie McGinest is old, D'Qwell Jackson is slow, and Kamerion Wimbley is eating too many Doozer sticks. I would venture to guess that they'll be in the top 5 of the draft. I would further venture that their biggest eye would be on the top LB of the draft...probably James Laurinaitis.

DB: HELP!

And here, again, is where the Cleveland Staph Monster will set in. It may dissuade the good DB free agents from even talking with Cleveland.

It's fun to see, now that Quinn wasn't a Godsend that changed the team's fortunes like the fortune tellers of Cleveland assumed (oh, wait, I forgot, he had excuses for the games in which he sucked...), that people are finally blaming those who are in charge for farking this team up.

Y'know what? Your diatribe about Quinn not immediately turning the team around is just about as idiotic as the praise that he would.

No wait...it's more idiotic, because you're making the self-fulfilling prophecy. It's "fans" like you who get the sucky team we have on the field...and that's the team you deserve. You're welcome to that team.

But don't be jumping on the bandwagon whenever the team decides to be good again. We all (especially I) will remember when you kicked the team when it's down.

Because you claiming to be a Browns fan is the same as a Republican Obama-basher claiming to love America. You, like they, would rather trample the very thing you claim to love out of a form of prideful spite I don't get at all. You're not a Browns fan; you're a misery peddler, and you deserve this team you savage "because you love it".

This would all make much more sense if he ever claimed to be a Browns fan. He isn't. His diatribe is pointed against the extremist few here on Fark who were claiming that Quinn would suddenly right the ship.
