Cleveland Browns fans knew there were going to be days like Sunday


against the Los Angeles Chargers.Even if they did not want to admit it.The Browns offense was never able to get anything going in the 38-14 loss as they were just six-of-16 on third down Youth Denzel Ward Jersey , had just 317 yards of total offense, and looked completely out-of-sync for much (most?) of the game.It was disappointing but not exactly surprising, given that rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield is still learning the ropes. But what is a bit more concerning is that the game against the Chargers was not exactly an aberration.Since taking a 42-34 lead against the Oakland Raiders late in the fourth quarter of their Week 4 game, the Browns offense has run 31 offensive drives. And the numbers are very ugly. On those 31 drives:17 have ended with a punt17 have consisted of five or less plays24 have gained less than 40 yardsThat is in no way a recipe for success, but it is also not a reason to panic. (At least not panic a lot.)Despite the excitement of the past few weeks Youth Jabrill Peppers Jersey , the Browns were never going to make a run at the playoffs. The team has come a long way in the opening weeks of the season, but expecting the Browns to go from 1-31 to a playoff spot - no matter how many new players were imported - was simply unrealistic.As much promise as Mayfield brings to the quarterback position - which is considerable - he is still a rookie who is seeing opposing defenses adjust on a weekly basis. He may not be getting much help from the coaching staff, either, who continue to give running back Carlos Hyde (2.9 yards per carry on 14 rushes against the Chargers) more work than his numbers would indicate. Head coach Hue Jackson’s weekly claim that the Browns “need to give Nick Chubb more carries” was once again empty on Sunday, as Chubb had his customary three carries despite averaging 8.3 yards per carry.The Browns at least remembered that Duke Johnson was on the team this week as he averaged 18.2 yards on six touches (two rushes and four receptions). It may not have ultimately made a difference http://www.thebrownsfootballauthentic.com/briean-boddy-calhoun-jersey-authentic , but putting the ball in the hands of Chubb and Johnson on a day when wide receivers Jarvis Landry and Antonio Callaway combined for just four receptions and 20 yards on 19 targets may not have been a bad idea.This isn’t to imply that all hope is loss, but rather just a realization that the Browns are still a team finding its way, especially on offense. Deep down, Browns fans knew a day like today was a possibility.Hopefully as the weeks roll by day’s like today become the rare norm, rather than a weekly occurrence. Baker Mayfield's been thrown into the mix for the Browns.The No. 1 overall pick in this year's draft replaced Tyrod Taylor after Cleveland's starting quarterback sustained a concussion in the first half of Thursday night's game against the New York Jets. Taylor was slow getting up after being sacked for the third time and after being evaluated in the medical tent Youth Genard Avery Jersey , was taken to the locker room for treatment.At halftime, the Browns said Taylor has a head injury and will not return.Mayfield, who was supposed to spend his first season learning behind Taylor, completed a 14-yard pass on his first throw and then fired 17-yarder on his second as Browns fans roared for the Heisman Trophy winner.Mayfield went 3 of 4 for 47 yards on his first drive, which ended with newly signed rookie Greg Joseph kicking a 45-yard field goal to pull with the Browns within 14-3.Cleveland's plan was to have Mayfield watch and learn behind Taylor http://www.thebrownsfootballauthentic.com/joel-bitonio-jersey-authentic , but the injury could change things dramatically.Taylor was ineffective during his time on the field, going 4 of 14 for 19 yards. The Browns traded for Taylor in March to serve as a mentor for their young quarterback.Mayfield's debut is giving fans a chance to see the top two QBs taken in the draft. The Browns opened to take Mayfield over Darnold, who was considered the most complete QB in this year's class. Custom Carolina Panthers Jerseys
