BROWNS BYE WEEK GRADES 2010

By Kenny Roda

Brown RB Peyton Hillis

Offense – “C-” – Brian Dabol’s offense has scored the 2nd fewest points in the NFL so why is the letter grade not a “D” or an “F”? One reason, Peyton Hillis! He has established himself as the go to guy in this offense and he is its identity for now.

That’s right a Browns offense finally has an identity. It’s a power, run oriented offense featuring Hillis. Yes the qb’s are still big question marks, and the wide receivers stink,

the o-line has been average at best, the tight ends good, but Hillis has been very good!

Defense – “C” – They’ve kept the Browns in games, but they’re still giving up big plays.

Eric Wright has been the worst player on the defense and hopefully in the second half of the season Eric Mangini will give rookie Joe Haden that starting spot at corner. Some of the additions like Scott Fujita and T.J. Ward and Haden are upgrades, but not enough to make this more than an average defense. Still too many smoke and mirror tricks by Rob Ryan to hide the weak spots.

Browns KR/WR Josh Cribbs

Special Teams – “D” – Teams around the league have figured out a way to make Josh Cribbs a non factor and it’s killing the Browns. No big play touchdowns and poor to average field position for the offense that needs a lot of help. Phil Dawson has been good & Reggie Hodges very good, but other than the two gadget plays against the Saints, nothing special.
