Please, everyone- I did not write this little vignette to poke fun at Our Boy Diam. It really was just a creative writing exercise, instead of ranting about this team's horrible play.

This goes out directly to Diam: Bud, I hope you get a chuckle from this along with me. It is not intended to poke fun at you in any way. It just popped into my head as a gallows humor joke, and I decided to share it with the kennel.

I do think we'll get there, but I was never as certain as lots of fans. Pro teams have a lot of moving parts, and a lot has to go right for it to work. I was concerned about the coaching turnover all along. Not surprised that this year has some of these features. I just expected things to start turning around right about now. Las Sun didn't fill me with a lot of hope.

-Lindsay was the most dynamic player on the field....How come we can't ever have that?
WE do have that. We just don't use them correctly due to coaching and scheme.

OBJ is the most dynamic player on the field.

Chubb is probably the hardest working and consistent player on the field

Jarvis is probably the feistiest player on the field.

Myles is probably the most athletically and physically gifted player on the field.

We have HOF talent levels on this team. AT LEAST 4. We just cant use them correctly because our scheme, coaching, and discipline blow.

Im pretty sure they see he had a lot of tackles and figure "he must have played good!"

Instead of realizing that one tackle was when he bit HARD on PA, and had to drag the guy down from behind 16 yards downfield. But hey, it counts as a tackle.

I know they break it down play by play a lot more than just looking at some stats but we gave up a few big plays and most of them seemed to be in the middle of the field... like I said, I'm not going to say they were wrong but......

I have a thought.
Having lost to Denver's Allen and will lose to Buffalo's Allen,the Browns should petition the Nfl for a schedule change.Dump one of the remaining opponents and play Carolina's Allen.
The Browns would get another well deserved,embarrassing entry into the hall of shame,having lost to 3 QBs named Allen in the same season.

Has there ever been a time when three NFL QB’s with the same last name were starting simultaneously?

I don't remember the details, but those rankings try to take into account where he makes his plays (at/before LoS vs way behind him). I did notice Shobert biting hard and getting beat twice towards the end of the game.


There is no level of sucking we haven't seen; in fact, I'm pretty sure we hold the patents on a few levels of sucking NOBODY had seen until the past few years.

This was an IDIOTIC play (or lack thereof) by our defense. They go Wildcat in that situation and we don’t contain the edge

Defense laid down and gave up from the start of the game.

It was obvious from the opening whistle.

No heart.

The only person I thought that looked like they gave up was Whitehead and his lame attempt at tackling.. turned out he was playing with a broken hand. About 90 yards of their offense and 10 points came as a result of his whiffed tackles.

Someone said Greedy played well (or has played well) and I actually think he hasn’t ... seems soft and oft-targeted

Williams has made some nice tackles. He's a rookie corner, we should expect inconsistency.

J/C .....He's a rookie, who has played 4 games, and who had a 4 week injury in between those games. I'd give him a while before we start breaking everything down so intently. The kid's still learning.
