So is Cody Kessler the best QB the Browns have had since they re-booted the franchise?

2013 Jason Campbell (8) / Brandon Weeden (5) / Brian Hoyer (3)
2012 Brandon Weeden (15) / Thad Lewis (1)
2011 Colt McCoy (13) / Seneca Wallace (3)
2010 Colt McCoy (8) / Jake Delhomme (4) / Seneca Wallace (4)
2009 Brady Quinn (9) / Derek Anderson (7)
2008 Derek Anderson (9) / Brady Quinn (3) / Ken Dorsey (3) / Bruce Gradkowski (1)

2006 Charlie Frye (13) / Derek Anderson (3)
2005 Trent Dilfer (11) / Charlie Frye (5)

Cleveland's tackling skills are seriously lacking on this drive.

And Derek Anderson is clearly their best QB. Kessler is #2

Edit: Maybe not, if McCown is replacing him, at least until McCown's next injury in a quarter or so.

Do the Browns even know if they are in man or zone on any given play?

They do that no-man's land pointing, standing, and running around before every snap. It is not deception.

I missed if Kessler got hurt or not. McCown is a total statue back there. Puzzling move. Any idiot can take a terrible drive-killing sack before throwing a deep ball up to nobody.

I've only watched the 4th quarter but Collins is missing tackles left and right

Collins looks awful and, beyond that, doesn't appear to be putting much effort forth overall. His compete level is low most of the time.

They really need to rewrite the catching rule so that if the ball moves at all it is not a catch.
Just absurd how much grey area has been written into a catch making contact with the ground.

Regarding Collins, though, I'm not sure I can even blame him. If he stays healthy, he's set for the rest of his life, even if it's just a franchise tag one year deal. Tear an ACL and who knows.

So you're the coach of a terrible 0-9 team. Your defense is garbage, your offensive line is garbage, your RBs are replacement level at best.
You have a rookie QB who for the season is completing 67.5% of his passes for a 7.2 YPA, 5 TDs 1 INT in 6 games. In the First half he goes 11/18 1 INT, 1 sack.

WHY THE FUCK DO YOU PULL HIM?
Oh yes, to put in your 37 year old backup with a career 59.3% completion percentage, 6.7 YPA 77 TDs to 67 INT in 79 games.

Makes perfect sense to me!

The Rajon Rondo effect. When engaged, capable of being the most dominant player on the field/court but maddeningly has his head up his ass too much of the time.

Ok, so there's AJ Derby's first impact for Denver. Looks like he's an everydown guy for them now. I hope Belichick doesn't regret this one.

I thought the defender was out of bounds and touching the ball before the receiver established possession.
But I am getting them all wrong this year after getting them all right last year.

The Rams had the ball at Jets 32 and 3 and 1, so they pitched it outside losing 5. What does Fisher do? Punts.

EDIT: In fairness, punt is downed at the 1. Not bad.

What happened to Rodgers the last year and a half?

I get the lack of weapons but he has completely fallen off a cliff after putting up historic numbers

Why is Cooks returning kicks? Just throw him the ball more often
