Breakfast with Brownie


Good Morning Browns Fans!!

Welcome to another edition of Monday morning blues..err..I mean Breakfast with Brownie.

Once again, the Browns found yet another interesting way to lose a football game, but not without a little help from the

referee’s as well.  A bogus pass interference with under 30 seconds to play was enough to give the Patriots the ball on the goal line and ultimately a few second later scored what would be the winning touchdown.

As heartbreaking as the loss was, I still believe in the long run the past couple of weeks of last-minute losses will benefit the Browns in May.  Without a franchise quarterback this team is going nowhere fast, and it will just be like ground-hog day over and over.  It’s about time this franchise took a couple of steps back to finally take one big leap forward.

That big leap will hopefully come in the form of Fresno State’s Derek Carr or Louisville’s Teddy Bridgewater, but if they keep taking those couple of steps back(i.e. continue their losing ways) they will put themselves in position to get one of these guys and hopefully right the ship and get back to prominence.

The Browns are back home next week to take on the Chicago Bears and we shall see if they continue taking those steps back to make that one giant leap come May..

Brownie Bites

 

Browns safety Tashaun Gipson on the way the Browns defense played against Tom Brady yesterday during their heartbreaking loss.  “It feels awful,” said Browns safety Tashaun Gipson, who like most of his teammates blasted the refs for a questionable pass interference call against Leon McFadden that set up the winning 1-yard TD with 31 seconds remaining. “Nobody counted us in to win this game. A lot of people counted us out, and for us to come in here and dominate the way we did — Tom Brady is arguably one of the best quarterbacks in this game and for us to manhandle him like that? We took an L, but I feel like no guy in this locker room should have their head hanging down.”

 

Browns coach Rob Chudzinski on the heart wrenching loss in New England yesterday.  “The guys played extremely hard and I’m sick about the outcome of the game,” said Chudzinski. “(But) we can grow from this.”

    Mike, I agree with you wholeheartedly! I only got to see the last few minutes of the game, as my wife had us otherwise engaged at a Christmas party, but We got hosed on a couple of calls, not only the pass interference, but there were two grounding calls, one made one not made, that hurt. And how about that unnecessary roughness call on the TD for the Pat’s that gave them extra yardage on the onside kick!!
    I must agree with you on the Franchise QB thing! We go nowhere without one. We might sneak into the playoffs with Hoyer and Campbell, but to go very far we need a franchise QB ! A fix here and there is also needed. Something to help the running game, a tweak here and there on D and some offensive line help and some depth at a few positions would be GREAT. But the QB is the springboard that is needed the most. I see Tampa won and The Jags won Thursday, we should be moving up the draft board!!?
    Anyway, Congrats to the Browns, they played there collective butts off and got Clipped by some bad Refs. I hope the Browns file a protest with the league office as these bad calls should not go unpunished. It’s to late to do anything about the game, but they should fine these Refs or discipline them as to not let this happen again!!

      Mike I just saw a 2014 mock draft on Bleacher Report and the Browns draft 6th, Bridgewater and Carr are gone and they have us taking Blake Bortles from Central Florida and then the pick from Indy we get Odell Beckham from LSU ? what do you think about that???

      • Mike

        Saw Bortles play last month against Temple in Philly. Big kid, strong arm, mobile and throws a nice ball..He had 404 and 4tds in that game. I have a feeling we will be picking in the 3-4 range by seasons end. Best case scenario is St. Louis keeps losing and we can trade up to 2 if need be, bc I believe they will be interested in shopping that pick. I guess we shall see soon enough lol

        • Letterman007

          Sure hope you are right! Bortles is OK but not my first, second or third for that matter. This will depend on the teams last three games and several other teams over that same time period. But what looked like a great QB draft is not materializing and we have to hope for the best!!
