Ten ugly observations

Kenny Roda from WKNR SportsTalk 850 will be writing a weekly blog on Cleveland Scores covering the sports world both locally and nationally. Check back often for his updates!

I’m going to put as much time into this blog as the Browns seemed to put into their game plan for Sunday’s game at Cincinnati. The way I figure it, if they’re not going to put any effort into it, why should I force myself to break down a 34-17 loss to the Bengals that wasn’t as close as the score indicates.

1. The Browns weren’t ready for the Bengals no-huddle.

2. Why did it take the Browns three quarters before they decided to throw deep?

3. The Browns gave up 160 yards on the ground, 145 to Rudi Johnson. That’s 310 yards on the ground in two games. So much for that improved run defense!

4. Carson Palmer threw for 352 yards.

5. Braylon Edwards dropped 2 passes, while the team as a whole dropped 5.

6. Maurice Carthon should be fired, his play calling stinks!

7. Why doesn’t Kellen Winslow Jr. stay on the field for every third down opportunity, even if they use him just as a decoy?

8. Don’t look now, but the Baltimore Ravens are coming to Cleveland on Sunday with a 2-0 record, having outscored the opposition 55 to 6. Charlie, I hope you have life insurance!

9. In the AFC North, the Bengals, Ravens and Steelers (as of Sunday) are a combined 5-0…the Browns are 0-2.

10. Team MVP so far…Punter Dave Zastudil!

That’s it. Nothing more needs to be said.
