The Cleveland Browns offense had a rough day.
The Cleveland Browns had a rough day offensively against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Well, the first team did, anytime Jerome Ford touched the ball, he turned into a superhuman and obliterated the Jaguars’ defense. Maybe he was heckled a lot as a kid by Jaguars fans and now, it’s personal.
Probably not, but he whopped them up good.
We can’t say the rest of the offense was as good. Now, Anthony Schwartz isn’t on this list. Why? It’s because he was already on the “gonna get cut” list before this game, and you can’t fall farther than that.
Secondly, an honorable mention to everyone not named Amari Cooper, or Daylen Baldwin, as your position on the team fell slightly. Due to inactivity, injury, or a consistent ability to be inconsistent. So with that out of the way, let’s see whose stock fell.
Three offensive players whose stock fell
John Kelly didn’t play badly, but he also didn’t have any highlights. He had a scoring play that was wiped out by a holding call, but one has to ask if is that good, shouldn’t he be able to score again? Was his touchdown run a perfect situation, or did he will it to happen? Don’t know, regardless, Jerome Ford is the fourth running back and his performance alone made Kelly’s stock fall.
A lot of people like giving Jedrick Wills a pass, I’m not one of those people. He’s constantly the most penalized player on the line, and his lack of quickness has been an issue far too often. He’s a starter in the NFL, absolutely, he is not and will never be worth the 10th overall pick in the draft. A second contract is possible, but he may get Joe Schobert’ed.
We have not seen enough tape on Josh Rosen or Joshua Dobbs, we have seen enough tape on Jacoby Brissett, however. Brissett isn’t a starter in this league, and his career has more than defined that. Tacked on the fact that he’s looked back in practice, and it’s not hard to see that he’s holding the seat warm until someone takes it from him. His lack of playing didn’t save him from his stock falling, as Rosen and Dobbs both played far better than we’ve seen/heard Brissett play in practice.
