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

This was one of those games that many had circled on the schedule as a potential win. You can erase that circle. The Browns started slow and finished slow. The middle wasn’t awful. How’s that for analysis? Let’s get it started…

LOSER: Eric Hagg. Wow. He went from a guy the Browns were “very excited about” in the preseason and elevated to a starting spot to inactive in a week.

LOSER: Defensive Ends. Ryan Fitzpatrick had not been sacked heading into the week three match-up with the Browns. He will carry the same distinction into week four. There were a small handful of times they got a little pressure on the Bills QB, but nothing substantial. About the best thing the defensive line did was shut down the wildcat and the DTs got their hands on a couple of passes and knocked them down.

WINNER: Trent Richardson. What? You’re giving a guy that ran for only 27 yards a winner distinction? Yes. And that’s about where we are as Browns fans at this point. I do so because Richardson showed some signs of being a special player again this week. There is reason for hope with Richardson. Come on, he’s shown you more in the last two games than you have seen in two+ years in Hardesty. And he has three more TDs than Montario already.

LOSER: Joe Haden. Once again, Haden’s decision to take something on the banned substance list put his teammates in a difficult spot.

Ok. That should get the discussion going. How about you? Who are your winners and losers?
