The Cleveland Browns have gotten some good performance out of the man they took in the supplemental draft this past July. Josh Gordon has done nothing but good things since joining the Browns. He now leads the Browns in receptions and has three touchdowns including a 71 yard pass from Weeden last week which he was able to reel in with one hand. Gordon has shown some speed with his ability to get past the secondary, the Colts are going to have to play off of him just a bit. Gordon is in game shape by now after not even playing any type of competitive football in a while. Gordon wants to be that guy for the Browns, the “Go To Guy”. Gordon is a guy with a great attitude and he doesn’t want to disappoint his teammates. You have to love his attitude and how he wants to catch the ball to help the Browns become a competitive football team.
Last Sunday we saw the Browns bring up Josh Cooper from the Browns practice squad. Cooper was a receiver from Weeden’s college days and obviously brings Brandon Weeden a comfort level in the NFL. Weeden was able to find Cooper last week against the Bengals and Cooper hopes he can continue to be on the receiving end of Weeden passes. The Browns could win against the Colts come Sunday with the help of the two Josh’s. Gordon and Cooper bring a UN-known to their opponents defenses. Not many are familiar with these guys in the NFL. One thing is certain, they are quickly learning about Josh Gordon. Teams will be watching this guy from now on no matter where he lines up. Cooper on the other hand still may have the luxury of being Un-known, if he continues to catch passes and get the Browns first downs, defenses will be keeping an eye on him too.
It should be a interesting game come Sunday in Indianapolis with a pair of Josh’s going at it against the Colts.
