At Least The Niners Are Better Than the Browns

If you watched the whole MNF game, well you watched what had to be the worst game of the season, but man it was hard to take my eyes off the trainwreck that is the Browns offense. If you take out the last 10 yard lateral pass play (because it's more fun that way) the Browns ran 60 plays and had 150 yards of offense. That's 2.5 yards per play. But wait, it gets worse. Not counting the last play, Brady Quinn went 12/30 for 89 yards, with no TD's, 2 INT's, and a fumble. That would be about 3 yards per play until you remember that he also got sacked 4 times for a combined loss of 2 yards. So on 34 drop backs the Browns gained a net total of 64 yards. That comes out to 1.88 yards per pass play. For comparison, the Pats average 8.3 yards per pass play against the Colts, nearly 4 times the yards per play. You show 'em Brady. The crazy thing is I'm not sure a full-time Wildcat with Josh Cribbs wouldn't be more effective. At the very least i would be more interesting. Or heck, jut go all out and line up in a punt formation on every play and just tell Cribbs to run for his life. They'd probably score more than 5 touchdowns every 15 games.
