Whats Wrong With The Browns Comes Down To 3 Things

After another loss for the Browns this time in Denver there are 3 things they must do to turn their season around. The question is will the Browns make these three changes to right the ship. Let's look at the three things that must be done right away.

1. Freddie Kitchens must be willing to change and adapt. Now, this might be the hardest thing to do. Kitchens is a proud coach and is stubborn. He does not seem to like change and getting him to change and adapt could be a tough one. Kitchens needs to go back and make things simple for the team. He is trying to be too cute and fancy and it shows on the field of play. It seems he tries to make it tougher then it has to be. Sometimes when we talk football simple is better.

2. Tackle, Tackle, Tackle. The Browns have had a real issue this season with tackling their opponents. This is an area that really needs a lot of improvement. Last year the Browns were a lot better at tackling. I'm wondering how much losing Greg Williams as defensive coordinator had to do with the bad tackling now. The best part is this can be worked on at practice until it gets better.

3. Lastly, culture change must happen in the locker room. Watching the Browns play they look like a team divided. Most teams compete as one, but I do not see that in the Browns. It seems everyone has there own agenda and it seems winning is not one of them.

For Cleveland to get back on track these three things are a good place start. Will it happen I doubt it. Unless some kind of change is made it will continue to be a free fall for the Cleveland Browns and their season.

Baker Mayfield Walks Out Of Press Conference Say It Isn't So

It seems it just keeps getting worse for Baker Mayfield this season. He walked out of his press conference after he was not happy with some questions a reporter asked him. Baker has butt heads with this reporter before it seems. This is really no surprise as the season for Baker and the Browns continue to spiral out of control. Now one thing Mayfield has not learned yet is he cannot let reporters get under his skin. It just does not look good on him no matter if he is right. Reporters have a job and answering the questions no matter how dumb you think they may be is just part of your job.

Baker Mayfield is a young man that has a lot to learn and over time he will learn from this encounter with this reporter. Winning is what cures problems with the media. When you win they have less opportunity to ask you dumb questions. Right now the Browns are struggling and until they consistently start winning this will be an every week occurrence it seems.

Cleveland has a tough game in Denver and his single focus should be on them not a reporters questioning. Hopefully, Mayfield will learn that sometimes you have to play nice with reporters, but knowing Baker that's just not possible.

When The Hype Stops The Real Cleveland Browns Appear It Seems

The Cleveland Browns were given plenty of hype in the off-season and it seems the hype train has derailed already for Browns fans. Now the season is still early, but there was so much promise for the 2019-20 edition of the Cleveland Browns. What has gone wrong for the Browns this season? It can be narrowed down to a few things, and we will look at some of those things.

It all starts with the quarterback and Baker Mayfield has struggled with consistency and stays upright in the pocket. The offensive line has struggled and that has not helped Mayfield in his second year which was supposed to be his breakout season. When you have a young quarterback you must have every piece work together or they will struggle.

Cleveland has one of the best receiver group in the whole NFL, but they have not lived up to the hype as well. Why is that? Simply put it takes time to gel as a group and it may take a season together before you see any real success. OBJ, Jarvis Laundry are two of the best in the league and will be fine once they get more playing time together.

Out of everything so far this season the defense, in my opinion, has been the most disappointing unit of them all. They have had some injuries, but they are such a talented group. There is no excuse for giving up as many points and yards they have this season. They must get better if the Browns are going to improve this season.

Overall the Browns should be okay after next week's Patriots game. The schedule gets a lot easier which should help them out a lot. The bottom line is they must continue to improve every week if they want to be a playoff team.

Can Michigan State Keep It Close Against Buckeyes?

The Michigan State Spartans have won three of the last eight meetings between these two teams, but will that help them this time around. The Buckeyes are favorite by 20 and that could increase before kickoff. Ohio State could very well be the most complete college football team this year. They have destroyed everyone that has been in their way. Does Sparty even have a chance against this Buckeye juggernaut?

Mark Dantonio is a coach who seems to get the most out of his players in this game. He will need to devise a game plan to keep the Buckeye's powerful offense off the field as much as possible. Even if he does that Ohio State has a great defense as well Dantonio will also have to deal with. No matter how you look at it this could be an uphill struggle all game for the Spartans.

I do like Ohio State in this game, but I think it will be a lot closer then many people think it will be. Dantonio is a miracle worker when the odds are stacked against him. He has the knack to get his players to play their best game when it is needed. If Sparty can get a few breaks you never know what could happen. I do like the Buckeyes in a close one 27-24.

Is It Time For DeMarcus Cousins To Think About Life After Basketball?

DeMarcus Cousins has had a rough time lately with injuries and this off-season is no exception. This time it is a torn ACL and he could miss the whole upcoming season with the Lakers. Cousins recently came back from a torn quad with the Golden State Warriors. You hate to see this happening to a player who is out there giving it his all to help the team. DeMarcus Cousins has to seriously look at maybe hanging his sneakers up after this latest injury.
When injuries start to mount up there comes a time where you must say to yourself is it worth it anymore. Fighting back from injury after injury is tough and many times it also weakens other parts of your body as well. Training has to become an all-out desire or you will never get back to where you wanna be. The question I have is will DeMarcus have the desire to make it back or will he decide to hang it up.
My personal opinion is DeMarcus Cousins will give it one more try, if another injury pops up he will call it a career. I think that is the right decision for Cousins at this point in his career.
