Rob Chudzinski could already get the label of a head coach that can’t win the big game. Why you wonder, he is the guy who was calling the plays in 2007 when the Cleveland Browns needed a win over the Bengals to move on.
This time around Chudzinski is the head coach and he had 2 weeks to have his team prepared to go to Cincinnati and get a win over the Bengals. The Browns beat the Bengals this year and they held them to just 6 points.
In this game, the Browns special teams had 2 punts blocked and one was returned for a touchdown. The Browns imploded on special teams, when this happens to your football team, nothing good can come out of it.
When was the last time you can recall a Browns team getting a punt block, let alone 2 in one game? This is unthinkable. When your team has a punt blocked, your chance of winning is greatly reduced.
Chudzinski and his offensive coordinator needed to make some serious adjustments at half time. Did they do this? No, they completely failed to find a way to make the Browns a competitive football team in the second half of the game..
Turner couldn’t figure out a way to get the Browns offense moving with any regularity and he is the guy that should be held responsible for that.
Jason Campbell had poor pass protection all game long and this contributed to him having to throw to his check downs throughout the game.
It was almost like someone forgot to tell the Cleveland Browns that the bye week was over. Other than the Browns defense this team looked like they were still on vacation against the Bengals.
Chudzinski has a lot of learning to do before he becomes a dominant head coach in the National Football league. Turner should be ashamed of himself for the way his offense performed in the game, or should we say didn’t perform in the game.
The Browns have no excuse for how poorly they played today. This is inexcusable for a team with 2 weeks to prepare for a game. This has always been Cleveland’s problem. They are too laid back.
Even when they have a big lead in the game, they relax and let their opponents back into it. The Browns need to learn how to go for the jugular.
How a team can struggle to get the ball into the end zone as often as the Browns do when they are in the red zone should be the 8th wonder of the world.
It doesn’t matter who the quarterback is this team needs to find a way to make touchdowns when they have 1st and goal.
The lack of coaches that can properly evaluate talent, amazes me. Bobby Raining the running back the Browns let go, rushed for 160 yards today.
What do we have for a running back? A 33 year old guy who can’t even practice with the team all the time because he has to rest his knees. Unacceptable is what this is. Completely unacceptable.
This 41-20 loss is just as much a coaching loss as it was the teams loss. You have to be better prepared than what Chud put on the field today.
Chudzinski has to be better at getting his Browns ready for a big game than what we saw today. This too is completely unacceptable.
