3 Problems That Need Fixing with the Cleveland Browns Offense

Whether its Colt McCoy or Seneca Wallace at QB isn't the Browns biggest concern.

I look at the Monday Sports section of the (Cleveland) Plain Dealer and see a dejected Peyton Hillis walking off the field after yet another Browns loss. What follows is the talking heads of the local sports media searching for ways to justify another loss.

Terry Pluto, maybe the only credible Cleveland sports journalist, even claimed he wasn’t “especially discouraged” after watching the Browns squander another fourth-quarter lead to the Cardinals.

Sorry, Terry, but if “playing hard” or “battling” (as head coach Pat Shurmur loves to muse) doesn’t equate to “winning,” fans don’t share your sentiment.

Browns fans don’t expect the West Coast offense to produce Drew Brees-type stats. Neither do they expect Dick Jauron’s defense to shut down other teams in the way the Steelers or Ravens can.

We just want our team to find a way to win. With the track they’re on right now, simply claiming “give the system a chance to develop” doesn’t cut it, because quite frankly, there’s no progress being made.

The reality is, the Browns didn’t have a difficult schedule this season. In fact, this was their easiest schedule since their miraculous 10-win season in 2007.

When you hear an established player like Josh Cribbs claim the team doesn’t have the talent to compete, there’s a problem.
