Breakfast with Brownie


Morning Browns fans!!!!!

Well it’s Tuesday, which means our beloved Cleveland Browns get back to work and get Aug 10, 2012; Detroit, MI, USA; Cleveland Browns punter Spencer Lanning (5) before the preseason game against the Detroit Lions at Ford Field. (Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports)ready to take on the Pittsburgh Steelers next Sunday.

One thing they will definitely need to get right to snag a win against their division rival next week, is to improve the play of the special teams.

For those of you keeping score at home, Sunday’s blocked punt was the first blocked punt against the Browns in 20 years.  Of all games for that streak to be broken, had to be Sunday’s must win in Cincinnati.

When asked about the disarray on the punt team Sunday, Browns long snapper Christian Yount admitted his snap on the partially blocked punt sailed a bit to the right of punter Spencer Lanning.  He also admitted fault for not recognizing the Bengals’ scheme.

“Yeah, they stunted,” Yount said. “We call it a pick-twist where I set to the right. Peerman came and picked my shoulder so he turned me around and then you have the looper (Williams). Usually, we’re pretty good at it, it’s a non-issue. But yesterday it wasn’t.”

Without question, the special teams needs to be cleaned up before Sunday’s big game with the Steelers.

It seems like it was a few mental breakdowns on special teams Sunday that hurt this 4-5 Browns team.  They needed stellar play from all three phases to steal the second game from the Bengals, and the only one that showed up consistently was the defense.

Let’s hope they get it right with a pivotal matchup looming on Sunday!!

Browns coach Rob Chudzinski on admitting quarterback Jason Campbell had a tough outing Sunday against the Bengals, but has faith he will bounce back against the Steelers.  “You’re not always going to play great every game,” said Chudzinski. “Really, the key, you look at the last three games that Jason’s played have been against three very good defenses. I thought he played particularly well the other two games. He’s the first one to say he needs to do better.”

“As I’ve said many times before, the key to quarterback and that position is how guys bounce back when they’re having some adversity or don’t play as well as they would have liked,” said Chudzinski.

Browns tight end Jordan Cameron on the different coverage the Bengals gave him throughout the game limiting his effectiveness.  “They were playing some cover-2, there’s 2 deep safeties back there, so whatever looks they were giving, they were dropping a mike (linebacker) down the middle of the field, so it’s hard to get the middle open,” said Cameron. “It’s just one of those things, some looks were there and when they’re there we need to take advantage of those opportunities. I don’t think we played well for four quarters, we had good spurts here and there but it wasn’t a game where we played a great game overall.”

>The early lines in Vegas have the Browns favored in Sunday’s matchup at First Energy Stadium, and as Dustin Fox points out, that hasn’t happened in 10 years.

 

>Good to know no matter how it was found or who found it, that the 1946 Browns Championship trophy is back home!!

    I think we saw the real Campbell Sunday. He got the nick name dump off Campbell in Chicago!! This was why he’s been with four teams. He has a surprisingly good game and then it’s back to reality . He missed a lot of open plays down field as he was too quick to dump off. I think the hit on his ribs has him back to being gun shy now and he needs to go back like he was in the Ravens game!! The big mistake this team made was to not work on the offense in free agency and the draft. BIG mistake!!!

      Totally agree..Missing on Trich and Weeden set this team back tremendously!!! If this team drafts Tannehill and let’s say Alfred Morris or Doug Martin where would they be with this defense

  • Letterman007

    I’ll go you one better, how about Russell Wilson and Doug Martin!!! The Big Show wouldn’t know young talent if it bit him in the A–!It makes me sick to think how many really good players the Browns have passed up in the last 5 to 6 years in the draft. Unfortunately if they come close to the playoffs this year and don’t make it’ how far down the draft order will they fall? If too far I’d rather wait on the QB and draft the other offensive positions of need. Get your QB the next year and hope to keep Hoyer healthy.

    The good news is their are plenty of really good possible franchise Qb’s in this year draft…It’s stacked, so we should be good wherever that first pick falls!!
