With all the talk about the Offense, we are forgetting about the Defense. The Cleveland Browns had a dynamic offense in the past. The way the NFL is today, the offense gets all the "hype". When was the last time anyone on defense was named MVP? It was 1986, and that man was Lawrence Taylor. that being said, the defense is not doing great for the Browns. They are ranked 32 in overall defense and mostly in the bottom on every category. I realize that the secondary is bad, but the front 3 aren't doing good either. The only good point is the linebackers and they are above average at best. The best statistic is sacks. They are ranked 22, but that is still nothing to be too proud of. To be honest, shouldn't Rob Ryan be blamed for this? We blame the offense on Daboll and Eric Mangini, so why are we not talking about Ryan?
Ryan is quite possibly someone who you could run into at the Flats and be one of the guys. He is a blue color coach, and that gives him a slide for the fans. I think it also gives him a slide from the players. he is a good coach and i think he can do better with better players. I also think that the team can do better, but we need a good mixture of young players and veterans, not a lot of rookies. Go Browns, i haven't given up on this season yet. I still think you can win each Sunday. “On any given Sunday you're going to win or you're going to lose. The point is, can you win or lose like a man?” - Al Pacino, Any Given Sunday.
