Daily Dawg Tags: A Bengal calls out the Cleveland Browns
The Daily Dawg Tags brings you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know, including a Bengal criticizing how the Browns operate as a team.
The Cleveland Browns defeated the Cincinnati Bengals 27-19 on Sunday despite playing another sloppy game. The Browns were clearly the much more talented team, but once again, they struggled to effectively use the talent effectively as a unit.
The Browns not being able to work well as a team caught the attention of Cincinnati defensive end Carl Lawson. Following the game, Lawson did not mince words when he discussed how he felt about the Browns as a team.
Despite just losing to the Browns, Lawson said the Browns are a team with a lot of egos and are not connected as a team. Lawson believes how the Browns are “fighting and bickering” proves the Browns are not working as a team, and as a result, why they are struggling this season.

Bengals’ Carl Lawson calls Browns disconnected … JC Tretter: Worry about your own team – Steve Doerschuk, Canton Repository
"“I don’t get too caught up in talking about what other people think they saw,” Tretter said. “A. lot of people can say a lot of things. I try not to waste too much of my time worrying about what kind of a random guy’s opinion is when he doesn’t know what’s going on on this team.“He should probably worry about what’s going on with his team at this point.”"
J.C. Tretter is correct in saying Lawson should worry about what is going on with his own team and not a team he doesn’t know what is actually going on with. But it is hard to not believe what Lawson is saying because he is pointing out the things that have been fairly evident this season. The Browns may believe they are a unified team, but they don’t always show it on Sundays.
The Cleveland Browns are losing even they are winning
The Browns victory over the Bengals on Sunday pushed their record to 4-1 over their past five games. Despite that, Casey Kinnamon feels like the Browns are still losing, even with their winning ways the past several weeks.
Sheldrick Redwine has the confidence and ability to ‘take him wherever he wants’ as an NFL safety – Ellis L. Williams, Cleveland.com
"He made the kind of swift-acting play that grabs a crowds’ attention in the moment and pops off the screen just as much during a second viewing. Such plays are on-field examples of growth. Coming from a fourth-round rookie — at a position Cleveland has long term questions at — Redwine’s play since his first-career start in Pittsburgh is a bright spot within Steve Wilks defense."
With all of the injuries on the defensive side of the ball for the Browns, they were going to need their young players to step up, and that’s exactly what Sheldrick Redwine has done. Redwine has been one Cleveland’s best defenders the past two weeks, and is showing why the Browns felt comfortable using a mid-round pick on him in the 2019 NFL Draft.
