The Browns are awful. They got beaten to a pulp in Houston. I said they would get beaten to a pulp in Houston. No one should be surprised. But such is life for a team that is in a perpetual state of rebuilding.
What we saw on Sunday was exhibit A for just how far away the Browns are from being a serious contender in the NFL. The Houston Texans have weapons galore. Matt Schaub, Arian Foster, Owen Daniels, a hurt Andre Johnson… hell, Ben Tate, the back up running back who ran for 115 yards and a TD, is more talented than anyone the Browns can throw out there on offense. We have nothing.
That’s your football team, Cleveland. That’s what we’re saddled with moving forward.
Sunday exposed the Browns for what they are. They aren’t a good football team. They aren’t an average football team. They’re a bad football team. They’re a bad football team with an overrated defense that was exposed as frauds and an even worse offense… and even worse offensive line. Colt McCoy is going to die… I’m convinced.
Now there are signs that the foundation is starting to crack. Players are sending out snide Tweets after the game, Colt McCoy and Pat Shurmur are at each others throats on the sidelines, and then there’s Peyton Hillis. Where does this all end? Again, this is your football team.
In all honesty, I don’t think there is much more to say about what happened on Sunday. I said everything I needed to say about this game on Sunday before the game was played. To keep spinning my wheels talking about how bad the Browns are and how poor that performance was seems redundant.
Combine all of that with the recent Penn St. story and quite honestly… there are more important things going on in the world than to bitch about the Browns. So let’s just end this here for today and get back at things tomorrow when maybe the world is a little less depressing…
