Cleveland Browns 2023 Edition

Bye Stefanski.

Is there a worst play caller in the NFL? Been running the ball down their throat, need 3 yards and put the ball in harms way throwing with your 3rd string practice squad QB.

Can't make this stuff up.
Idiotic move. Even if they don’t make it they punt and give Seattle a long field. And Stefanski won’t get fired because the owner is dumber than he is.
 
This is turning into a wasted season. As usual for CLE, the defense gets carved up at the one time it really needed a stop. The big thing is the lack of a competent back up QB. Walker is a nightmare. His decisions and vision are terrible and he has a rag arm. He doesn’t belong in the NFL. Berry made a huge mistake in not having a legit back up QB. I don’t even want to get into the whole Watson disappointment. The Browns will soon be officially in last place and yet another season goes down the drain.
 
Just imagine how a guy like Hunt feels. Dude fights like crazy to get back in the league and was ballin' today-only to watch them give it away.

What a joke this team is.

PJ Walker got cut for an undrafted DII QB, Bagent, and the guy who holds the NFL record for interceptions in a game, Peterman. What's that tell us.

That being said, the loss isn't at his feet. It's at Stefanski's.

And as usual, instead of making a move-any move- to rectify the QB situation, we suffer thru who knows how many wasted weeks doing nothing with a third-rate QB.
 
Article claims Browns can't win with PJ Wlaker.

I don’t think anyone needs an article to inform them what has been obvious since the SF game. During the last two wins the team overcame Walker’s deficiencies, but it was almost luck to do so twice. The luck has run out. They need a legit back up QB.

Walker costs the Browns $617,222; the cheapest player among the Browns 53; who are you going to get that is cheap - Carson Wentz?
trade for a bad team's QB - maybe Arz Dobbs $1.5 mil ?

Money isn’t going to be the issue. With QBs dropping like flies around the league, few teams will be willing to even discuss trading an experienced back up to CLE.
 
Stefanski like a clown at the press conference talking about we all own this...no you own this for going against common sense. You had been pounding it down their throat, running the ball is the strength of the offense, you have a practice squad QB in the game...run the ball. The worst thing that happens is you have to punt and force them to go the length of the field. Where was Hunt down the stretch?

Speaking of clowns, you got these people defending Stefanski "what do you mean fire Stefanski he's 2-1 with Walker" 🤡 he'd be 3-0 if he had a clue. And this is a cumulative thing, how many games does he have to burn before these people go gee maybe he's holding this team back? One playoff year followed by mediocrity. Wasting the best window the Browns have had in decades. But hey enjoy the process, there's always next year right?

Agree with all, and you can toss in that he is still trying to force Watson to be Kirk Cousins in an offensive system that does not play to Watson’s strengths. When you made the investment they’ve made in Watson you have to adjust the offense to what Watson is comfortable running, not what Stefanski is comfortable calling. So even when…if…Watson comes back healthy I still expect him to look like a fish out of water as Stefanski forces him to run a highly scripted West Coast timing offense.

If Stefanski wants to keep his job, he must be forced by Berry and the Haslams to hire an offensive coordinator who will be more in tune with his players' skills. We were once again sold a bill of goods this summer with the old," We've re-tooled our offense around Deshaun and what he does best." What do we get? Watson under center running the same offense as Brissett. No change. No one believes anything Stefanski says anymore and with good reason.
 
Many of you already said it, that 3rd and 3 with the helmet deflection was a dumb call. But just as important, where was Hunt the 4th quarter? Did he even touch the ball in the 4th quarter? He was very effective the first three quarters.
 
Okay, now that I've had some time to calm down, I would say that Stefanski has done a decent job of keeping the offense moving despite missing his starting RB, QB and RT. The offense, with a backup QB has actually been decent during the game. He pulled off the same thing with Brissett. If he could just cut out the inexplicable plays calls under pressure....
