||Sure our o-line is in shambles but they were moving the ball in the first
half. Coaches need to get these guys prepared for home games. They need to
stop playing to the level of other teams. FIre Arian, his play-calling is
pathetic. Willie Green; hold on to the d**n ball!!! Or do you need to change
your name to Tiki? Quincy you still drop too many passes.
||I'm tempted to say 'everyone'. This was a lackluster, undisciplined team
today. Special teams, defense, offense, you name it they screwed it up. Tim
got hammered due to the porous O-line and threw two "what are you thinking"
INT's. He also stuck with the short routes and held onto the ball too long.
The run defense was terrible, and the special teams were sad.
||what the hell is butch thinking about??? fourth and inches and we don't go
for it !!! fourth and one and we don't go for it !!!! fourth and nine and we
go for it??? wtf, butch ??? and,,,why did you wait so long to put in Holcomb
when it was obvious couch did not have what it takes today.. ??? s**t , we
could have been in first place in this sorry a** division if you had your
game brain on today..... and the d'line sure sucked considering at about 48
minutes into the game the chargers defense was on the field about 29 minutes
and our sorry ass group is the ones who looked tired.......... aaaggghhhh!!!!
||There were more stupid passes by Couch than the two picks. D-line looked OK
but LB's Blew it. To many dropped Balls
||More of these than normal. The wide receivers flat out sucked today,
dropping everything that came near them. Andra Davis for his game ending
penalty for roughing. Couch gets his for his two picks and for zoning out on
his receivers. And Ricky Williams Green for his two fumbles.
||CATCH THE FOOTBALL GUYS!!! As high as some of you were drafted, you are not
||Once again, Dave Campo and the defense show that when everyone in the
stadium knows what the other team is going to do and who the LONE guy on the
other team is to do it, they show all the manhood of a eunuch. Bonus points
to the refs who ignored TWO obvious roughing-the-passer calls on the
Chargers but did call a mysterious head-slap on a critical third-down
penalty against the Browns.
||They better sit Quincy down and not let him back in until he can catch a
ball...I'd rather see King start. We also better have a game plan that calls
for more than 5-10 yard pass plays. Rookie Charger D-backs and 2 or 3 long
||I'm a Couch backer but he has to make plays and score, score, score. Of
course, the WR's have to catch the d**n ball. The team was flat and
unprepared. That rests with the coaching staff.
||Morgan-Quit crying about not getting the ball. You don't catch it when it
matters anyway. Green is running the ball effectively, but they got to fix
his fumbling problem
||Tim Couch: You officially killed you career in Cleveland. Have fun in
Chicago or Arizona next year. Robert Griffith: He has consistently gotten
beat or missed tackles. Time for him to go after this season. Quincy Morgan:
Has been dropping pass after pass this year. Forget about trading Northcutt,
I'd rather dump this guy and resign CJ Jones.
||Once again we lose to an 2nd rate team, a 2nd rate coach, and a 3rd rate
||Hero to goat in a week - Sorry Tim, Why did William only run the ball 14
times????????????? Even with a battered line he gained good yardage per
||When is Butch going to replace Morgan with Davis or Northcutt. I have a
great idea. Start Holcomb at home and Couch on the road. Another 200 yard
rushing performance is ugly.
||How many gift's does it take to put 3 points on the board, look into my
eyes (T.C.) ala Bela Lugosi halloween is a few weeks away d**n it. Boy we
sure did make Tomlinson look good.. Hey Tim, just what was that 1st time out
for anyway? Receivers have never looked any worse, my jack russell terrier
makes better catch's and she's a b***h, so is this loss!
||Pick Andra Davis for third goat (Couch/KJ get it too) for missed tackles
plus penalty. Griffith just had missed tackles
||the coaches deserve this because the team always plays to the level of the
opponent... never to the level the browns should play at... Andra Davis, the
roughing the passer probably cost us.... the offense was horrible, dropped
passes no protection, not getting open.. it was bad
||I am so sick of missed tackles. the secondary did it all 200 yards. fowler
almost got Tim killed. Morgan can't catch a cold. the announcers were
||How many times do we have to hear missed tackles and Robert Griffith in the
same sentence before he is jettisoned?
||Couch was awful, LBs over-pursued all game long, and yet again tackling was
||Arians-I have a macro for him now. Timmuh-maybe sealed your fate for good.
Wide outs couldn't catch, couldn't find the first down marker, couldn't get
out of bounds when needed. What a dismal performance.
||Got to love the Horizontal Offense, What do expect? When you throw from East
to West instead of North to South by design, eventually a DB will step
between the QB and receiver. Bruce Arians never opens up the offense and
plays not to lose, unless we are down by a score or more in the 2nd half. He
needs to go, I've seen enough.
||1.Andra Davis gets one for committing the Roughing-the-QB penalty at the
absolute worst time. The Chargers were dead at that point of the game. 2.The
entire Defense gets one for letting LT run wild. 3.The entire Offense for
not executing until the second half, then not running out of bounds when
they had to. 4.Couch for inconsistency, staring at his receivers much too
long and not getting rid of it when necessary.
||the same basic peewee football play calling every week. supposedly great
receivers who cant seem to get open when they do they drop it. last year we
couldn't run we had to pass no one could stop it. pre season talk of 4 stud
wideouts...???? it cant be all the players faults... can it???
||The OL gave Couch no time to throw the ball. Couch also had a bad game on top
of having no time to throw. Several dropped balls by the receivers sure
didn't help his cause. Davis sure didn't make good adjustments again. They
had no game plan on offense at all until the second half and I don't think
it was all Couch. the usually sure-handed Kevin Johnson had some key drops
including the huge 4th down one in the 4th Q. Bottom line is this loss is
inexcusable. They should be ashamed of themselves for loosing this game. No
one gets a paycheck for as bad as they played as a team. Also...please do
not wear those Orange jerseys again!
||Couch locked onto his receivers and threw costly picks. O Line didn't give
time, granted we have injuries there, and other than Northcutt all the
receivers were dropping balls.
||Couch played like the Couch that got him benched in the first place. How
many drops did the WR's have today? The conservative dink and dunk
play-calling is NOT going to save Timmuh's job.
||Let's have a moratorium on bragging about our wide receivers until they
start actually making catches and producing big plays. Quincy Morgan is
playing more like his rookie year than last year..
||Tim got lousy protection all day, but the INTs were him all the way. Sorry,
man...but it could be that Kelly's fourth quarter spark just sealed your
destiny for a trade. Dawson set the tone for the day by turning a decent
opening drive into a worthless exercise. Q, you will never be among the
elite receivers in the league until you start catching the balls that are
thrown to you. O-line was just AWFUL against a 4-man rush. Jeff Triplett is
STILL an A$$HOLE!
||What's to be said? I've been telling you idiots for weeks, oh hell, ever
since that collapse against Baltimore a year ago....and most of you still
don't get it....I think that sadly teams get "cursed" when sh***y players
somehow attract the majority of fans in a town....in our case, these idiots
that continue to support a loser. Those people need to leave this town right
along with timmuh.
||REST OF TEAM PLAYED POORLY AND BUTCH DAVIS WAITED TO LONG TO PUT IN HOLCOMB
||Lackadaisical, Lethargic... Disgusting. Beginning with pregame warmups, it
was blatantly obvious that this team was not mentally prepared to play
football. For whatever reason they went through the motions for almost three
quarters. They're simply not capable of winning when they do that.
||Fire the O-Line coach... This team played like crap and it all starts with
||I did it to Heiden last week, so KJ, that dropped pass earns you a goat!
||The officials blew some calls, some roughing calls especially. The fans
never should have booed Couch, boo the o-line if you're going to boo
anybody. Ryan Tucker and Barry Stokes are about the only ones who would have
a shot to start anywhere else out of the guys who played today, the rest
would be on a practice squad making less than half of what they do now. I
think they ought to donate their checks from this game to a battered
quarterbacks fund somewhere.
||What is wrong with the Defense?
||WRs- couldn't consistently get open, kept dropping balls, can't block, and
can't get out of bounds when you need to stop the freakin' clock!!!!!!! Tim
Couch- Will the real Tim Couch please stand up? I repeat...will the real Tim
Couch please stand up?...we're going to have a problem here. Defense- Except
for Courtney Brown, no one on this defense even deserves to wear an orange
helmet, or call themselves Dawgs. They embarrassed not only themselves, but
the fans, the city of Cleveland, and the whole state of Ohio. I guess the
only definition of "tackle" they know is fishing gear, cause they were
definitely fishing for Tomlinson the whole day. Orange jerseys- Wouldn't it
have been more appropriate on a day when the 1980 Kardiac Kids were honored
at the stadium that the current players would've worn either the white or
brown jerseys with orange pants? Besides that, those ugly orange jerseys
should be burned anyway. Butch Davis- great way to get your team ready
today. Man, all that hard work in practice sure showed on the field. I guess
you'll say that Gerard Warren and Kenard Lang had even better games than
they did in Baltimore, huh?
||Too many dropped balls by the receiver corps, can't put it all on Couch.
Secondary needs to practice the fundamentals of open field tackling....how
many more Lewis's or Tomlinsons will run long TDs on them? Butch Davis needs
to have confidence in his OL to go for 4th and inches even if it's not in
the final minutes of the game, another missed opportunity!
||QB Tim Couch went 13/24, but threw 2 Interceptions, which led to 10 San
Diego Points off Turnovers. The Entire Offensive Line, despite injuries, for
not opening more holes for the running games. WR Kevin Johnson, for dropping
a 4th-Down pass late that would have given them a first down on that last
||4th and inches punt the ball-that sets the tone of the game, Butch Davis
tries not to lose, not to win. Anthony Henry sucks! Let me stand here and
wait for Tomlinson to run over here by me so I can try and tackle him-oops
he didn't come to me so I don't have to try. He sucks. Special Teams still
running uncontrolled down the field and let the returner run right pass
||Andra, Andra! Roughing the passer?! QM needs to start catching passes or
start getting packed. And even though it's not their fault, the OL was worse
||Robert 'The Bullfighter' Griffith Ole!!! The WR's on this team could be the
most overrated unit in the entire NFL. What a sham!
||WR's - catch the damn ball. First you shatter Couches confidence then you
cost us the game late, thanks. Andra - we all have bad games today you had a
real bad one. Carmen you are still a jack***.
||Inconsistency is the result of poor coaching. If the head coach ego doesn't
allow him to improve his coaching, the team needs to look elsewhere.
||If Dawson makes that first FG, its a 3pt. game on the last drive. If Morgan
can catch the ball, he gets 30 yards at least in the first quarter. Couch
threw two picks on the exact same play... unbelievable.
||Learn to Catch the ball WR
||Maybe we should go Tim Couch on the road and Kelly at home..
||1. can't catch for sh*t 2. can't block for sh*t 3. can't tackle for Sh*t.
Need I say more??
||WRs had hands of the softest BRICK on Sunday - Rickey Dudley would be proud.
Dra Davis gets one by his own admission for letting that 80 yard TD run go.
And Tim just let himself get more and more rattled. You can't do that.
||This is the SECOND TIME a running back has rushed for 200 yards or more on
the Browns this season. And what's with all the dropped balls on offense?
These guys couldn't catch beach balls right now. Also, Dennis Northcutt--RUN
OUT OF BOUNDS!
||Why does the team keep wearing these god-awful jerseys? Carmen trying to
line his pockets more? Everyone I know thinks they're terrible. Plus, I made
one trip back to Ohio last year vs. Panthers. They're wearing those
butt-ugly unis and lay an egg. What are they now, 0-3 in them? We fight to
keep tradition & they throw it in our faces.
||last night after the game i sat thinking to myself all preseason all we
heard about was our great receivers, and this high powered offense. well i
only seen it work one game that was the Steelers game. i am beginning to
believe our receivers are over rated and also arians system sucks. it is
very predicatable and puts our qb's in bad situations. we run the ball and
1st and 2nd downs 90% of the time and than we have a 3rd and long, defenses
know what we are doing and gives them the advantage. by doing this our qb's
are put up against a wall. look at their #'s. stats dont lie. both have
struggled. Kelly came in and did great that b/c we spread the field. if we go
into new England w/ the same game play run, run pass, Kelly or couch is going
to have a long and ugly day. also have 2 line man out and dropping passes
doesn't help. also davis how come you cannot fire up the boys at home???
what's the mental block..... too many penalties at home kills drives and
||Had the receivers caught the ball I would not be disappointed because TC
would not have been pulled and he probably would not have been pressing so
much. The linebackers over-pursued and missed tackles. Once again Bruce
Arians failed to stretch the field with the Browns receivers. So much for
all that speed.
||i'm tired of Butch not having this team ready to go hard every week and
Arians play calling still leaves alot to desired
||TC, I love ya, but you sucked. Pass defense good, run defense bad. Quincy
Morgan -- the second coming of Michael Jackson.
||Couch is never going to get it! White wants more playing time, maybe he
should try catching the ball...
||At his best, Couch is not much more than a middle-class quarterback. When he
was winning, he wasn't throwing the ball much and Green had consecutive
games with well over a hundred yards. Without Green, he couldn't do
anything. Holds on to the ball too long, never stretches the defense and he
has lousy vision. This time, his poor play cost us a game that should have
been a lock. Admittedly, Holcomb faced a defense that was only concerned
with taking away the big play, but he did everything right, inspired the
team and another lame Browns crowd, and might well have won the game but for
some dropped balls by the usually sure handed KJ and the less sure handed
other receivers. (What happened to Quincy Morgan?)
||There are so many possibilities this week, but lets not focus on individual
failures. Lets focus on the failures of the team. Instead of an attacking
defense that would be hellbent getting to LT and Brees, we got a read and
react look yesterday. Nice coaching Butch, very nice. Thought you could just
line up and play them didn't you? WELL YOU WERE WRONG - AGAIN!
||Morgan you suck. Catch the d**n ball. Ever. Andra, you've been playing so
well lately and then this? What a crappy performance. William Green. Can you
stop fumbling the ball at least once a game? Ben Gay you get goat horns for
not making this team.
||The one time Dennis Northcutt decides he wants to get hit--RUN OUT OF
FREAKING BOUNDS! Quincy Morgan couldn't catch a cold right now. Will the
real Tim Couch please stand up? Oh, never mind, that's him on the bench.
||Not one player; not one unit had a great game; Offense, Defense, Special
Teams, none stood out; none excelled; The Coaches; every coach, has to
account for himself, all have to step up.
||When is team is as penalized as the Browns are it goes to coaching. Butch
does not have these guys prepared. Bruce Arians continues to suck hard every
week. Even in wins his play calling is awful. Quincy Morgan better stop
reading pre season fantasy predictions and start working on route running
and pass catching.
||How could they show up in Orange Jerseys on a day where they are honoring
the Kardiac Kids. Bring back the Orange Pants!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
||sad sad sad ive seen hs players play better than that
||The Browns were once again manhandled on both sides of the line of scrimmage.
More than 3 goats votes needed here....
||This team couldn't tackle a sled. The Browns had the concrete gloves on
yesterday -- EVEN K.J.! This Jekyll / Hyde defense looked nothing like the
squad that had played some pretty good games this year.
||were to start. coaches for having a lousy game plan, o-line for getting tim
killed back there. special teams cus they all deserve to be on the short
bus. wide receivers are paid to catch the damn ball qm get your head out of
your third point of input and play.
||TIMMAY blew. Period. The Receivers blew. Period. The Tackling in the 2nd and
3rd levels blew. Period
||The WR Unit sucked, and lead to TC demise. Don't get me wrong, TC took over
after the WR couldn't catch his passes and started passing to the other
team. Good to know we where a miss tackle away from a W. LT's 70 yrd. run
killed me in fantasy and as a Brown fan. TC is dead in Cleveland.
||TOTALLY PATHETIC PERFORMANCE...DEFENSIVELY....!
||As a Couch fan it is hard to say this, but I think that this performance is
the final straw. His time in Cle. is up. Andra Davis missed several tackles
and was called for the penalty in the 4th qtr. The wr's dropped WAY to many
passes, even KJ?!?!
||If I have to hear about our four WRs being the "best four in the NFL" again,
I'm going to puke. Catch the damn ball... Bruce Arians, I should give myself
a gameball for having to put up with you at Alabama (Roll Tide) and now at
||Butch, should have put Holcomb in earlier. Quincy, Quincy, Quincy - stop
||Coach Davis-look in the mirror and tell me whose fault this was. Marty took
you to school, I just hope you learned from it.
||I am so sick at the way we played against San Diego. How can we beat the
likes of the 49ers and Pittspuke and then lose to this team? If I could give
our coaching staff a thousand goat horns each, it would not be enough!
||dropped passes and missed tackles... isn't that football 101? I think that
someone accidentally snuck a soccer coach in on them and told them they
couldn't use their arms! The O-Line gets it not so much for their play, as
the fact that we had to rely on backups to BACKUPS! With the exception of
Faine and Tucker, none should be starters
||I had more goats than allowed this round of voting. Tim so-so, for what it
was. The receivers couldn't hold onto the ball. The offense coaching most of
the game was terrible. Like many times in the past, it was too hard too
late. Maybe bringing Kelly in earlier might have helped? All of us expected
new and different things from the Chargers. Especially coming off a bye
week. Didn't you? Geez! I am disgusted and heartbroken to say the least.
||Arians must DIE! This guys needs to be back in high school ball. Lets make
Robiskie the new OC
||Couch looked bad. His only touchdown was for the Chargers. Costly penalty by
Davis at the end and also some big runs with missed tackles. WR unit and
Heiden had a lot of drops. CATCH THE BALL, THEN RUN...
||CATCH THE FING BALL!!! That was the worst performance
I have ever seen out of our receivers. I think Heiden had at least 5 dropped
passes and Quincy once again dropped the ball when it came his way. STUPID
STUPID STUPID.... And finally to the Gestapo err Security that patrols the
stadium. They actually put a guy in jail for standing up during the game.
