Who caught your eye? Did someone stand out? Who blew it? That’s what were interested in this morning. Winners and losers. What’s this? Consecutive weeks in which we get to run this feature after a win? Interesting. A guy could get used to this… WINNER: Josh Gordon. Before we get too crazy, we all agree that Oakland’s defensive backfield is pretty bad. That said, this was a really nice game for Gordon. Six catches for 116 and a very nice TD. Should have had a second as well, but a badly under thrown ball prevented it. Gordon has been solid and getting better. He is well worth the second round pick the Browns used on him in the supplemental draft, at least early on. Given an offseason to further develop should help make Gordon a real weapon next year. If he can stay out of trouble. WINNER: Greg Little. We’ve mentioned Little’s blocking in this space before, but yesterday it was pretty visible. I’m not entirely sure the big block was legal, as it seemed maybe Little hit him in the back a bit, but it was aggressive. He also didn’t didn’t hurt the team at all with his hands. Four catches for 48 yards. Good game Greg. WINNER: Sheldon Brown. Well, maybe this is just the day for popular whipping boys to get some credit. Brown was very good yesterday, and was targeted a lot. His interception was obviously a huge play in the game. He had other nice pass breakups as well. Helped support the running game. Just a solid effort. LOSER: Josh Cribbs. Sometimes Josh, you need to take the knee. You really do. Ok, it’s your turn. I left plenty of meat on the bone for you.
