Anyone got a pack of smokes? Still sweating from the Tyrod Taylor trade. John Dorsey pulled off a third Trade in the span of an hour and a half. This time he sent DeShone Kizer and a late round draft choice to Green Bay. In exchange, the Browns received Cornerback, Damarious Randall.
Excellent work by Dorsey on this one. Randall was Green Bay’s top corner this past season. Randall was drafted in the first round of the 2015 draft by the Packers. With the Green Bay roots in Cleveland’s front office, this one comes as a little less surprising. Randall has 10 interceptions through 2 full seasons.
Shame to have to give up on DeShone Kizer less than a year removed from drafting him. I still believe he will succeed in the NFL. Despite his accuracy issues, anti-clutch gene, and 0-16 record, Kizer handled a truly horrible season in a professional manner. He never complained, called any of his teammates out, and always shouldered responsibility. For that, I will always respect the shit out of DeShone Kizer. Hue Jackson did his best to destroy the kid, but he kept his head up. Some games he really looked like he could be something. The Packers will coach him up well.
Go fucking Browns.
Week 15 has come and gone in the NFL, and the Cleveland Browns have lost another Football game. I have be re-iterating all year that they are losing winnable games. This past Sunday was not winnable. The Baltimore Ravens traveled to Cleveland, and bent the Browns over.
DeShone Kizer accounted for 3 total turnovers on the day. 2 interceptions, and 1 fumble. The game started off tame enough with the Ravens opening up the scoring with a Justin Tucker 31 yard field goal. Duke Johnson answered for the Browns with a 12 yard touchdown run off tackle. The Browns were winning 7-3.
The Ravens rattled off two touchdown drives in a row to answer. A 2 yard Joe Flacco run, and a 33 yard Ben Watson catch. Just before the second quarter ended, Zane Gonzalez added a field goal to make it 17-10 Ravens at the half. This would be a close as it ever came. The Ravens added another touchdown and field goal in the second half to make it 27-10.
- The Browns Ran the ball well, amassing 130 yards from Crowell, Johnson, and Kizer. This bodes well for them in these next two games. Running the ball is absolutely vital to getting a win.
- The Defense did not play as well as they had in the past, but they still kept the Browns within earshot. While this season has been absolutely miserable, it’s good to know some aspects of the team are headed in the right direction.
- Only two more weeks left.
- Marvin Lewis will step down as Head Coach of the Cincinnati Bengals. Hue Jackson’s days are numbered, as it is being reported that Hue is wanted back in Cincy. Good luck assholes.
- This week is Super Bowl Week (Explain in a bit)
^ I think it moved?
Well, here we are Browns fans. One last week coming up to get a win. My beloved Brownies head into Chicago to face the 4-10 Bears. This is it. This likely the last shot the 2017-2018 Cleveland Browns will have at winning a football game. While the public will be taking a collective dump over both teams, especially the Browns, this game is one of the more important game for me in some years. Just win a fucking game. The prospect of 0-16 is fucking miserable. I do not wish it on fans of my biggest rival. Time for Hue Jackson to shut his fucking pie hole, and coach this team up for a win. I need this one more than any other football game, because 0-16 is something that will be nearly impossible to come back from. Something’s gotta give, right?
As always, Go Browns!!
