Who caught your eye? Did someone stand out? Who blew it? That’s what were interested in this morning. Winners and losers. It really does boggle the mind why we keep coming back for more torture… LOSER: Buster Skrine. I know. It stinks that Joe Haden was hurt and couldn’t play. Yep, it also stinks that Patterson has been hurt this whole year and Buster, you’ve had to get thrown into the fire against some pretty good receivers. But wow Skrine, how many times in a run are you gonna reach out and grab a WR when the refs are throwing the flag on you? LOSER: Pat Shurmur. It wasn’t really a no-win situation. Even if you could see it coming a mile away. I knew the Browns were going to be forced into making a fourth down decision. Honestly, I was certain he’d kick the field goal. Regardless, the situation you have “been studying” for about three weeks now came into play and you struck out again. WINNER: The Defensive Line. Rubin and Taylor played together for the first time this season, and were effective. Not only were those two good, but Hughes and Winn know how to play when they get in the game now. And Sheard looked better with Taylor and Rubin lining up beside him. Yes, Dallas’ line is horrible. Still, seven sacks is seven sacks. WINNER: Ben Watson. Hey, the guy had two TD receptions. That’s a solid day, and on the day he was the fourth captain. Alright. Your turn…
