The Cleveland Browns take on the Indianapolis Colts tonight, can the team move to 3-0 on the preseason? When can we expect the Browns to unleash the vertical offense we have heard about since Chud took over as the team’s head coach.
Brandon Weeden is ranked 15th in passing yards this preseason and the Browns don’t have one receiver in the top 10 either. Josh Gordon the man who will miss the first 2 games of the regular season is ranked 17th.
The next top ranked Browns receiver is Jordan Cameron who is ranked 40th in the stats. Cleveland has won their first 2 games of the preseason and they have done it playing mediocre football. Nothing about the Browns stands out in the stats.
I for one can’t wait until the team starts using the vertical offense. If this team is playing this well without using it, what is going to happen when the coaches unleash Weeden and the Browns new vertical offense we have heard so much about.
The team should be able to walk all over the other teams in the NFL, heck this team could be super bowl bound the way the fans are reacting. Who knows how many games the Browns will win with the new vertical offense.
In tonight’s game the Browns are going to have to focus on keeping Weeden vertical in tonight’s game. The Colts defense did pretty well in their last game. They sacked the quarterback 6 times and the Browns may not have much time to execute the vertical offense in the game.
If Cleveland can do a good job in protecting Weeden, and he can get the Browns vertical offense going, the team could come away from Indianapolis with their 3rd win of the preseason.
