For the third consecutive year, we’ll take a seat each week in our very own WFNY Browns film room and break down a little tape from the game, with a specific focus.  Do enjoy. If you missed part 1 of this week’s film room, go back and read it. It’s sort of a prerequisite. So in part 2 we are going to look at what the Browns did to try and help Mitchell Schwartz against Cameron Wake. Yes, they certainly lined a tight end or running back up behind Schwartz to help block Wake, but there is more you can do and to my surprise more the Browns tried to do in order to slow him down. Let’s take a look. Here we have Ogbonnaya lined up behind Schwartz to give him a hand with Wake. Using your fullback in this way gives you the opportunity to pick up blitzes as well, and can lead to him sneaking into the flat for a pass. Here the combination of Schwartz and Ogbonnaya works on Cameron and Weeden has plenty of time to throw the ball. Nice job on this play by Cousins as well. Here comes an interesting play. Cameron moves over from the left side of the formation to the right side, and Gary Barnidge pinches in tighter. Here we see the two tight ends and the linebackers moving into position to counter. At the snap Schwartz doesn’t even block Wake, but blocks down on Odrick (98). Cousins pulls to the right, as does John Greco. This play looks like a run all over. Here we see the blocking and the fake handoff. Notice Jordan Cameron’s block on Cameron Wake (91). Boom. Cameron peels off his block of Wake and Weeden pulls the ball away from Richardson. Look at Miami’s Koa Misi (55). I call that the “Oh crap” position. Cameron crosses the middle and takes the pass from Weeden for a nice gain. It was a pass play that nullified the rush of Cameron Wake. Well done. Here we see another pass play. Seriously, look how far outside Wake has gotten. Now he’s outside Jordan Cameron, lined up in the flank. Schwartz blocks down and the Browns attempt to have Ogbonnaya block Wake off the edge. Jordan Cameron does not chip Wake at the line. This is not successful. Wake bursts through Ogbonnaya and disrupts Weeden. Of course, Weeden isn’t doing himself any favors by not seeing or feeling Wake come at him. As the game went on Wake just kept getting further and further outside. This is an interesting attempt to block Wake. Here Schwartz blocks down on the DT, and John Greco pulls from the right guard spot to come get Wake. Richardson also looks to Wake’s side to help out. This play to me was an adjustment made at halftime. I could be wrong, but I bet it is a direct response to Wake’s dominance on that side. Unfortunately, Greco whiffs on the block falling for a stutter step move. This one is a double oops as Richardson also doesn’t get a good block on Wake. He blew by two Browns like it was nothing. Richardson is not a great blocker. So far neither is Ogbonnaya. That’s not good considering he’s our fullback. Another way to slow the pass rush is with screens and draws. With the way Cousins was blocking, I’m not sure that a draw to that side would have been a good play. A strong rushing game would have helped, but we all know that the Browns abandoned the running game. Do you tip your hat to the Dolphins and Cameron Wake? Then what do you do when you face another top outside rusher? The Browns will have to work on this problem. We know that Mitchell Schwartz struggles against speed rushers that line up wide, but despite that weakness he can still be a good tackle in this league. Oniel Cousins? No comment. Until next week, the film room is closed.
