Unfortunately, you can't win 'em all, but luckily in the preseason you don't really need to. It was disappointing to lose Friday night's game, especially after leading nearly the whole night, but it wasn't as bad as it looked.
The first team did a bang-up job in the first half of the game. It wasn't mistake free, certainly, but for the most part it played a very solid game of football. The second and third teams looked a little iffier, once again raising questions about the Browns' depth issues.
It's early yet, but after two preseason games, we're starting to get a better idea of where the Browns stand. Following is the complete report card for the Browns performance on Friday night.
It was difficult to grade by position for this game given that in many cases, the starters did very well while their counterparts on the second and third teams performances brought the grade down, but we can still get a general idea of how each spot looked overall.
