5 straight turnovers by the defense. Three offensive points. That's just pathetic. The Browns' offense opened the 2nd half with 5 three and outs in row, 4 of which came off turnovers. The Browns win yesterday if the offense could just get first downs on two of those drives.

I mean the defense did as much as they could, but it was clear that they were dead tired late in the 2nd half. It was entirely due to the failures of the offense.

The game yesterday was just very frustrating.

McCoy played another solid game. He didn't do much in the 2nd half. That's not entirely his fault considering most of the times he passed in the 2nd half were 3rd and longs after two failed runs. The Browns need to find some decent receivers on the outside.

As a game it was reminiscent of the first two games of the season. It just doesn't make sense that Daboll has regressed, but the play-calling in the second half yesterday was tired and predictable, which is something he avoided in recent games.

I don't know what to think about this offseason. The record isn't good enough for Mangini to keep his job, but this team is already lacking talent and is injury depleted. They have been as impressive as I have ever seen a 3-7 team. This team shouldn't be as competitive as they are. So, I'm kind of leaning towards Mangini should keep his job.

Top Draft needs: WR, DE, ILB, DB
