Who caught your eye? Did someone stand out? Who blew it? That’s what were interested in this morning. Winners and losers.

The Browns fell to the Bengals, but looked better- at least offensively. Let’s get it started…

LOSER: Joe Haden. This will likely be a four week inclusion. Haden put his teammates in a tough spot. I certainly wouldn’t insist the Browns win that game with Haden in the line-up. But you can’t doubt they would have been better.

WINNER: Trent Richardson. Obvious pick here, but no less worthy. Richardson had some of his Alabama explosiveness this week. Thank goodness. Not a huge fan of the sideways somersault into the end zone, but I am a huge fan of the effort after the catch to get into the end zone. 109 yards rushing and 36 yards receiving with two scores. Well done. Whew.

WINNER: Brandon Weeden. Again, an obvious choice, but have to say it. Weeden finally started to look comfortable. Second half stat line: 17- 22, 201 yards and 2 TDs. A very good performance after a shaky start. We saw a little bit of why the Browns wanted him.

LOSER: Special Teams. Ugh. Terrible tackling and coverage on the Adam Jones punt return. More than just that play though, I am really starting to wonder about Cribbs as our full time returner. Doesn’t seem to have the burst anymore. Benjamin is a burner. Wouldn’t you like to see him get a shot?

All right, your turn. Give us your takes.
