The ‘Dawg House’ column features players  and/or positions groups that underachieved or struggled immensely during the Cleveland Browns’ latest game.  I will also try to include important tweets from other columnist or from the player’s themselves after a tough game or performance.

Wow. That is the only word that can be used to describe Sunday’s game against the San Diego Chargers. It was one that was filled with more disappointment and angst than any game I’ve watched in some time. Penalties and the negative yardage added up for the Cleveland Browns as they continued to look undisciplined before the snap.

Their mistakes forced officials to throw 12 of those yellow flags, which cost the team 91 yards. Most were for offsides, the most crucial one coming at the end of game by Tramon Williams.

You can’t get anymore “Only in Cleveland” than that moment.

While the entire defense probably deserves to be called out, the offensive line was equally as bad.  This was supposed to be one of the best lines in the NFL this season, but they have struggled immensely since game one.  Josh McCown spent more time trying to avoid the San Diego pass rush than he did checking down and completing passes. It seemed like on every play there was somebody in the backfield. The line allowed another below average defense to have their way and it doesn’t get any easier from here. They’ll be facing a newly energized Baltimore Ravens team that beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in overtime on Thursday.

However, there were some positives throughout the game. Gary Barnidge continued to prove that he was the better tight end between himself and Jordan CameronTravis Benjamin is proving to be a serious weapon for this team in each game, and Duke Johnson finally showed the explosion that the Browns were gloating about during training camp. Isaiah Crowell also showed flashes of his 2014 self in the game. Hopefully the team can build off of this momentum and carry it into Baltimore next Sunday.

But as usual, with the good–comes the bad. There were alot of player’s to choose from, but these are the ones I chose. Remember, if  you think I missed a player or if there was one that you believed should of made my list, comment and let me know.
