When the Cleveland Browns lose, stocks go down, and that’s exactly what happened after the heartbreaking loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Stocks are down in the Cleveland Browns locker room, and the coaches’ offices aren’t immune to this week’s market crash.

The Cleveland Browns made this one interesting.  Those orange helmets we just can’t quit looked like a different team in the second half.

They were successful in running the ball with Nick Chubb and around the fourth quarter, Baker Mayfield finally started to look comfortable in the fourth quarter, forming some nice chemistry with Nick Chubb.

But for three quarters of the game, Cleveland’s offense looked boring, vanilla and was unproductive.

Oh, how to sum up the Browns’ effort early on?

With the Browns in their two-minute offense toward the end of the first half, Haley calls a rushing play on 1st down with Cleveland down 14. The play lost four yards.

Now, head coach Hue Jackson is going to insert himself into offensive game planning. The coach has to figure that if he’s going to go down, he’s going to do it calling his plays.

The offense has really sputtered under Haley. The Browns have scored just six first-quarter touchdowns this season. Again, unacceptable.

I do like Haley, but never understood the call to make him the man the head coach.

He failed in Kansas City and his offense has now, for three games, has been unimpressive.
