Bears vs. Browns: Analyzing the Snap Counts (Offense)

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

Looking at the offensive snap counts in the Browns' 38-31 loss to the Bears.

The Cleveland Browns' offense was not very productive against the Chicago Bears. QB Jason Campbell had trouble with the wind, preventing him from delivering the ball to an open Josh Gordon or Jordan Cameron throughout the game. Check out the snap distributions below for the offense, and let us know what your reactions are in the comments section.

Thoughts: The offensive line did not yield a single sack and only allowed Campbell to get hit four times. The pass protection was good enough, but the run blocking underachieved compared to what other teams have been getting.

Edwin Baker: 8 carries, 38 yards, 4.8 YPC, 1 touchdown. 4 catch, 46 yards (4 target).
Chris Ogbonnaya:
5 carries, 7 yards, 1.4 YPC. 5 catches, 39 yards (5 targets).
Fozzy Whittaker:
1 carry, 1 yard, 1.0 YPC. 2 catches, 4 yards (2 targets).

Thoughts: Against the worst rushing team in the league, on a day where Jason Campbell struggled to throw the football, you would have thought that we would have tried to commit to the ground game a little more. Cleveland finished with just 14 carries from their running backs for 46 yards. Our tight end and quarterback combined for more yardage on the ground. All three backs did well as receivers, though. Edwin Baker had a nice debut, but judgment has to be reserved on him, given the Bears' defense. It can't be a good sign for Fozzy Whittaker that his rep count was lower than the just-signed Baker, though.

Josh Gordon: 3 catches, 67 yards, 1 touchdown (10 targets).
Greg Little: 4 catches, 68 yards (7 targets).
Davone Bess: 1 catch, 9 yards (3 targets).
Brian Tyms: No stats registered.

Thoughts: It was a frustrating day to see Josh Gordon open for several potentially big plays, but for the ball to appear to be just beyond his outstretched arms. His late touchdown kept his streak alive for consecutive games with a score. Greg Little had his strongest showing in awhile, but was again part of a miscommunication play that resulted in an interception. Davone Bess had a key third down drop.


Tight End
Jordan Cameron Gary Barnidge
MarQueis Gray

Jordan Cameron: 3 catches, 23 yards (6 targets).
Gary Barnidge: 1 catch, 17 yards (1 target).
MarQueis Gray: 2 carries, 30 yards, 15.0 YPC.

Thoughts: I'm guessing the Browns didn't expect the two wildcat runs for MarQueis Gray to work as well as they did, because they didn't go back to it after that. Gary Barnidge had a nice catch-and-run for the second straight week, taking advantage of a blitz by the Bears. Jordan Cameron, like Gordon, didn't get enough looks early on.


Quarterback
Jason Campbell
100%
58/58 plays

Jason Campbell: 23-of-39 for 273 yards, 1 touchdown, 2 interceptions. 1 carry, 17 yards.

Thoughts: A couple of weeks ago, I criticized Campbell for not being aggressive. I haven't re-watched the film yet, but this week, inaccuracy (which was attributed to the wind) was the big factor. Campbell's jump ball for Cameron in the first half was intercepted. There were several misses to Gordon that could have put Cleveland ahead for good. He also threw a pick six -- even if Little was at fault there, the coverage was already tight. This game did not support Campbell's case for being the team's starter in 2013, because you can't have inconsistent performances like this.
