Browns Thoughts…..

Below are my thoughts on the Browns loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers

Thad Lewis didn’t look bad out there

Lewis came into this game as a third string quarterback but seemed to have confidence and handled himself well in the huddle. Lewis made decisions quickly, found open receivers and seemed comfortable with the offense. Lewis did make some over throws and an interception but looked comfortable and in control out there.

Turnovers kept the Browns out of the game

The Browns were able to make plays but turnovers killed opportunities for the Browns. The cold weather may have made it harder to protect the football but the turnovers ended up being drive killers.

 

Montario Hardesty was impressive on his carries

Hardesty has not played much since Trent Richardson was drafted but he got his opportunity today against the Steelers. Hardesty made the most of the opportunity presented and managed to get key yardage when it was needed.

Pat Shurmer did not look motivated

ESPN broke the story last night that Shurmer and General Manager Tom Heckert were going to be both let go at the end of the season. In the hours leading up to the game, speculation surfaced that both could be giving their walking papers as early as tonight. Shurmer looked unmotivated on the sidelines during this game and the rumors may have been a big part of it. While new owner Jimmy Haslam III and President Joe Banner may wait until tomorrow before making officially firing Shurmer, it is apparent the Browns will have a new coach on the sidelines next season.
