Mistakes Hurt Browns In Loss To Bengals

Browns are looking better this season. Trent Richardson performed well in his second start with the team after missing all of preseason and a lackluster first game with the Browns. Weeden bounced back after a horrible showing during his first start. However, Weeden is the only rookie quarterback without a win of the five rookies this year.

I am excited to see what the Browns can do next game against the Buffalo Bills.

BEREA (AP) — Browns linebacker D’Qwell Jackson started to guess the number of missed tackles in Sunday’s loss at Cincinnati but stopped himself before tossing out a figure.

“A ton,” he said.

Coach Pat Shurmur wouldn’t divulge the count, either, but hinted that is was substantial.

“You guys can probably come up with a number,” he told reporters.

Too many.

Poor tackling, penalties, blown coverage by the secondary and other mistakes contributed to a 34-27 loss to the Bengals and negated several positives for the winless Browns, who received sensational, bounce-back performances from rookie running back Trent Richardson and quarterback Brandon Weeden, but still came up short.

On Monday, Shurmur and his coaching staff went over the game tape and worked with the young Browns on “corrections.” There’s plenty to fix.

And it should probably start on special teams. The Browns fell into a 7-0 hole less than two minutes…

“If he’s ready to go, he’ll be our starter,” Shurmur said.

Cornerback Joe Haden, who could potentially face suspension for testing positive for a NFL banned substance, refused to comment on whether or not he will face suspension. He did say, however, this could be his best year yet.

“I feel like this is the best I’ve played cornerback in my life,” Haden said.

Haden also commented on Richardson’s return. He said…

Browns News And Notes: Monday

CBS Cleveland

BEREA (92.3 The Fan) – If the Cleveland Browns are looking for a theme song this season, “We are young” by Fun is a perfect selection.

27 of the 53 players have 1 or fewer years of NFL experience – including 15 rookies.

“In this locker room, my 3-year-old’s old,” tight end Ben Watson joked. “Golly, we are a young team.”

They might be young but they are professionals. There are no excuses.

“They’re in there,” linebacker D’Qwell Jackson said. “We don’t care if you’re a rookie or a 7-year guy. If you’re playing, you’re playing. Whoever is up, we’re depending on you to win the game for us.”

Many question whether or not they can actually win, but that remains the goal regardless of age.

“Winning is very important whether you’re young or old,” Watson said. “It’s all about winning. It doesn’t matter if we have a young team…
