Browns-Seahawks Monday Game Tape; Browns Lose To Team They Should Lose To

Here it goes:

Browns stink and were never going to win in Seattle unless they played perfect football which they didn’t so they lost by 17 and no one was surprised because the Seahawks have been to the past 2 Super Bowls and the Browns are the Browns and had a QB making his 7th career start who wasn’t great but wasn’t awful but his receivers had 5 drops and the highest paid defense in the NFL gave up 30 points and 3 touchdown passes to Russell Wilson after our coach said Wilson wasn’t elite earlier in the week which was probably a dumb thing to say


Here’s the game tape


Seattle fans are so funny

The first drive was fun. It ended in a touchdown but the biggest play was Marlon Moore basically ending Earl Thomas’s life

And then Johnny found Gary for 6

Cam Erving did some Cam Erving things. So frustrating.

Richard Sherman threw Travis Benjamin out of bounds and the ballboy had the slowest fall ever

And before the half ended the Seahawks were allowed 1 final untimed down because of a Browns facemask. Instead of going into the half down 17-10 (respectable), the Browns were down 20-10 after Seattle kicked a FG

Johnny scrambled for a nice first down. Coach Flip really really wanted him to get down so they wouldn’t have to play Austin Davis

Hatin ass ref got in the way

Nice to see our players fighting each other

Couple quick thoughts:

  • That Terrelle Pryor Wildcat play was the most underwhelming thing ever
  • I cannot overstate how terrible that penalty was before the half that led to a Seahawks FG. There’s a huge difference between being down 1 TD at half with some confidence and going into the locker room down 10 after a terrible penalty to end the half.
  • Johnny wasn’t great and he wasn’t terrible. Pretty pedestrian. I’ve seen QBs play wayyy worse games in that stadium. I think there’s something there but we’ll never be able to fully evaluate him with the group of receivers he has to throw to.
  • I know it’s beating a dead horse but I’d love a few big receivers who could catch.
  • The Dwayne Bowe sighting in the second half was pretty neat. Bet that’s what he needed to springboard into the starting lineup vs. KC and Pitt.
  • Those announcers kinda sucked, right?
  • There was never a point in the game where I thought “Hey, maybe the Browns can pull this off” which led to a lack of letdown. It was nice not being let down.
  • Seattle fans are such dorks.
  • Johnny needs to work on his postgame attire, I think we can all agree on that.

Browns-49ers Monday Game Tape; Cocky Johnny Is The Best Johnny

Browns win!

Obviously we all want the #1 pick and say we want the Browns to lose to secure it, but once that game starts I can never bring myself to actively root against the Browns. As things stand now I just want to see a team that hasn’t given up and whose young players are making progress (Manziel).

Let’s look at the game tape.

Not the fullest house at kickoff

Swagger looked good as always

Johnny signed a $100 bill before the game. This was when I knew the Browns were winning this game.

I would’ve used a $1 or $5 bill but whatever floats your boat I guess.

Not big fans of Dwayne Bowe or Ray Farmer

Cocky Johnny was back!

He threw a bad interception and boy, he let this Microsoft Surface tablet have it. Stupid piece of technology.

Maybe the most underrated part of the day was the Independence Day trailer just dropping out of nowehere

A legend returned.

Couple dudes smoked some weed. It didn’t end well.

Barnidge backed up that big contract signing

“Pasztor, good fucking job!”

Dwayne Bowe gonna Dwayne Bowe. Unreal move here.

The Big Sumbitch was EVERYWHERE

First win in 63 days and first win in December since 2012. Enjoy it, you assholes.

Now to Manziel, because nothing else matters really:

Were his numbers a little inflated because the 49ers are ass? Yeah, a little bit. The 9ers stink. But don’t look at his numbers. Look at the way he stayed in the pocket. Look at the way he only ran when he had to. Look at the way he interacted with his teammates.

Are we allowed to get excited that maybe, just maybe, a quarterback that the Browns took in the first round is showing actual progress on the field? Yes.

Are we allowed to worry that we’ll wake up Monday or Tuesday morning and see his drunk mug plastered all over the Internet? Yup. As of right now I’m a billion percent more concerned about Johnny off the field than on the field.

It’s OK to have a little positivity after yesterday’s game, it really is. Watching Manziel on the field is so fucking fun. Just compare the Bengals game with Austin Davis to yesterday’s 49ers game. Yesterday we saw some Texas A&M Johnny. Talking shit, signing that $100 bill before the game, pumping up his teammates. This is what I’ve been waiting to see since he’s gotten here. The kid thrives on chaos and when he plays cocky, he plays well.

Newsflash- it’s a good thing if the Browns don’t have to take a quarterback with 2016’s top 5 draft pick, I promise you. If you’re a fan of the Browns, you should be rooting for him to show real progress in these next 3 games. Will it be enough to keep him around? Who knows. But going into an offseason where we know who the starting quarterback is hasn’t happened to this team in a long time. I don’t know what the future holds, but I know yesterday was fun.

On to Seattle. In Seattle. Ehhh

Browns-Steelers Monday Game Tape; Last In The League, First In Draft Order

Browns stink.

Let’s look at the game tape:

pitclebox pitclestats


The fans were pumped!

You knew it was going to be a good day when the Browns sent out an Instagram post highlighting Justin Gilbert when Gilbert was inactive.

But once the game started, the Browns came out firing!

Ah, the ol’ get burned and then strip the football and recover play. Works every time!

Johnson Bademosi doesn’t know which way to go

Some putz from Pittsburgh tried to rip Manziel’s head off, should be kicked out of the league forever and sentenced to death imo

Rough game for first round pick Cam Erving

Cam Erving isn’t going to enjoy the film breakdown this week #FuckinCamErving

This is what you get with Johnny Manziel (unfortunately you may get a red zone INT on 4th down as well)

Sick shirts, guys

Annnnnnd we’re 2-8.

Couple quick thoughts

  • If you think about it, the Browns lost this game when they injured Landry Jones, which was the biggest play of the game. The Browns literally lost the game by playing defense too well. That’s a new one.
  • Manziel looked improved and dare I say “good.” 1 TD run that the refs botched and a couple dropped TD passes in the end zone. He’s improving and I won’t have this argument if you think otherwise. Manziel made plays inside of the pocket and outside of the pocket. After a game like yesterday, he was the team’s lone bright spot, and if you can’t admit that just admit you don’t like the guy.
  • The most telling stat of the 2015 Browns season

  • Seems like the coaches may be losing the locker room

  • The coaches played Charles Gaines instead of Justin Gilbert because they “wanted to see” him. How about wanting to see your 2014 #8 draft pick?

  • Dwayne Bowe showed up again
  • Danny Shelton actually did some things. Maybe he’s improving and learning the pro game? Nah, I’d rather judge him by his first 7 games as a rookie in the NFL.
  • A reminder that Manziel threw for 372 yards @ Pittsburgh in his 5th career start.
  • Doing these after a Browns loss is painful so expect something different in the future.

See you for MNF.


Also, #97 from OSU looks pretty good in the Brown and Orange
