The Cleveland Browns did again, captivating the Dawg Pound with the second episode of the HBO series “Hard Knocks”. These were the biggest surprises.
The second episode featuring the Cleveland Browns on HBO’s “Hard Knocks” didn’t disappoint as the organization gave the cameras plenty to document.
Here’s the five biggest surprises from episode No. 2.
1. Corey Coleman entitled
“Why don’t you just trade me?” Coleman curtly said to the head coach.
Coleman came off horrible in this scene as someone unaware of what was happening around him.
Prior to Coleman’s outburst, new offensive coordinator Todd Haley tried to encourage and motivate the former first-round pick.
Instead, the NFL Films’ camera showed a player going through the motions on the field and not doing much of anything to catch anyone’s eye.
With Josh Gordon not reporting to camp, there was opportunity for Coleman to send his plummeting stock up a little bit, but all he did was convince the organization that they were better off trading for a seventh-round pick down the road.
Players discussed the trade, noting that the Browns basically just gave him away for nothing.
One thing HBO did not show was the organization actually sitting down with Coleman to inform him he was being shipped away.
For those who didn’t see the show, Coleman’s lasting memory will be that of a drop against the Pittsburgh Steelers as then quarterback DeShone Kizer was trying to fight off what eventually became an 0-16 season.
Many point to Coleman’s drop as the final nail in the Browns’ “perfect season” coffin.
Coleman took the loss hard, sitting, facing into his locker for about an hour after the game.
