Scott Fujita: Other Than Colt McCoy, Josh Cribbs, and Phil Dawson, Browns Stink
“Colt McCoy is tough as nails, Josh Cribbs is an all-around baller, and Phil Dawson is money in the bank,” Fujita wrote. “Other than that, damn.”
While it’s nice that Fujita recognizes the efforts of a few teammates, it’s the “other than that, damn” part that stands out.
Cleveland is 3-5 and has lost four of its last five games. They have one of the league’s least productive offenses, and they surrendered 261 rushing yards to the Texans Sunday.
Fujita’s right — outside of Cribbs, the team doesn’t have many playmakers. Dawson is money in the bank, linebacker D’Qwell Jackson has played well, and so has Joe Haden. Beyond that, the team is not very good. But maybe that’s not something Scott Fujita should be saying. He’s a guy who held an intervention with Peyton Hillis over the running back’s poor attitude. For someone who’s supposed to be a veteran leader, it’s probably not advisable to say something that will alienate most of your team.
