The Browns will be OK. I thought the defense actually played pretty well considering how long they were on the field.
Offensively, it's a work in progress, but it also didn't help that injuries to the line forced Oneil Cousins to start (and have four costly penalties when he wasn't getting smoked) and Josh Gordon is being forced to sit out the first two games. Not having Gordon really impacts the offense. Without him stretching the field, defenses can pack it in and focus on Richardson.
I expect Baltimore to do the same thing this week. Fortunately, their defensive line isn't as good as Miami's and I don't expect Cousins to be out there again this week after that putrid performance.
Weeden has to be better though. A lot better.
I'm not sure who these people are that were saying the Browns were going to crush the Dolphins. I knew it was going to be a very difficult game.
Suggs, Dumerville, Upshaw, Ngata, Canty, McPhee, Arthur Jones.
That's better, IMO.
