The Browns have a lot of things still to figure out this preseason.
The Browns have five cuts they have to make on Tuesday, another five after next weekend’s game, and then 17 more before the start of the season. The bad news is that the team has no clue what the defense is going to look like going forward. Too many guys have too much still to prove. It’s almost impossible to say for certain what the position battles are going to look like this week, let alone in three weeks’ time.
That’s the bad news.
The good news is the offense is set. Every single starter on offense, aside from Andy Janovich, sat in the Jaguars preseason game. Considering Janovich is a good blocker and a good pass-catcher, it seems that he’ll make the team once again, but the running backs are a deep and interesting bunch.
Not only that, but the receivers are ample, and there are at least six if not seven players that make sense for the Browns to carry with them into the season. Games against the Jaguars help shore up those questions.
That’s exactly what we’re going to be looking at today, some of the questions that were answered, and some of the questions that may have made things even murkier than expected. Some questions may not be answered until the regular season, admittedly and each game may pose new questions worth talking about. That’s the beauty and misery of preseason football. The minute you got one question answered, four more pop up demanding your attention.
So these are the questions that we think were answered after Sunday’s game and some questions that left us even more confounded.
