Cleveland Browns wide receiver Greg Little (second in drops last season) continued his catching problems last night against the Baltimore Ravens, dropping a total of five catches, including a great Brandon Weeden would-be-touchdown pass that he had right in his hands.
“My job is just to beat the guy and get through the middle of the field,” Little said. “[Weeden] moved around in the pocket, kept it alive and threw it up so that I could make a play on it. I just have to come down with it. It’s a tough catch and I don’t even know how to categorize it. It’s a tough one but if you want to be a great player then you want to make plays that people will remember, and put your team in a position to come back and win the game.”
Sorry Greg, no that tough of a catch. You gotta come down with that. End of story.
Talk in Cleveland before last night's game is that they were considering benching Little, but realistically, they just don't any other options. Mohamed Massaquoi didn't play Thursday night and Josh Cribbs suffered a concussion when he was nearly decapitated with a jarring shoulder-to-helmet hit that sent his helmet flying and his head crashing to the ground.

Thanks to Cosby Sweaters we have video footage of Browns punt returner Josh Cribbs getting laid out during Thursday night’s game against the Ravens.
Cribbs made a big mistake but putting his head down. That’s exactly how players suffer spinal cord injuries. The good news is that it looks like he’ll be fine.
Brandon Weeden has been getting better game in and game out. After a very lousy 5 percent quarterback rating in week 1, Weeden is becoming a better QB. After last week’s performance against Buffalo where he had the Browns in the game until the very end of the fourth quarter, Weeden seems to be getting a better understanding. I expect Weeden to put up big numbers...
The task of beating a more talented divisional opponent won’t be any easier for the Browns now that Mohamed Massaquoi has officially been ruled out of the game. Earlier this week the Browns seemed at least somewhat hopeful that Massaquoi would be available. Or maybe they wanted the Ravens to think they were hopeful. Either way, he is now out.
Additionally, the Browns will have...
As if being a Browns fan isn’t bad enough, last night was just adding insult to injury. They teased the fans into thinking they had a chance to beat the Ravens, and naturally, collapsed at the end. At the center of it all was wide receiver Greg Little (@Str8UpGlittle) who dropped a would be game-tying touchdown in the end-zone in the last minute. Browns fans went nuts, ripping...
During Thursday Night's Ravens/Browns affair in Baltimore, Cleveland kick returner Josh Cribbs got knocked out of the game on a punt return in the second quarter.
Cribbs took a shoulder shot from Ravens linebacker Dannell Ellerbe which sent his helmet flying and dislodged the ball from his left arm.
Check out the below brutal hit courtesy of SB Nation:
“We battled, we came up short and we fought our [tails] off.” — Brandon Weeden
“He battled.” — Pat Shurmur on Weeden
“Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden and his young, inexperienced receivers grew up a lot in Baltimore Thursday night, making the Ravens sweat it out until the last play of the game when they had a chance to tie it.” — Mary Kay Cabot
A few dropped passes, none no bigger than Greg Little's drop late in the fourth quarter hamper the Browns once again.
Rookie QB Brandon Weeden pushes the Baltimore Ravens to the edge as rushing attack abandoned.
There’s something wrong with a team, when your running back is is leading the way in receiving yards and catches. Trent Richardson has 15 receptions 122 yards and 1 TD. Currently on this Browns team, 1 TD is the highest amount among the receivers on this team. To give you a perspective, currently the NFL’s leader in receptions is Calvin Johnson he has 24 receptions for 369...
With about 5:16 remaining in the first quarter, Cleveland’s Josh Cribbs received a punt around the 26 yard line and immediately began sprinting up field along the sideline. Seeing several Baltimore players impeding his path, he cut back towards the middle of the field, where Baltimore’s Morgan Cox grabbed him and began the process of wrestling him to the ground.Cribbs lowered...
The Ravens will be playing their fourth game in 17 days, and third primetime game in their first four Thursday night when they take on the division rival Browns.
Cleveland is winless and has a rookie quarterback and running back combination in the backfield.
The winless part won’t change for Cleveland because the Ravens’ defense will harass Brandon Weeden into mistakes. Weeden...
Season 3, Episode 22 of The Terrible Podcast is up and co-host David Todd I start by giving our thoughts on the Baltimore Ravens win over the Cleveland Browns Thursday night. We give our thoughts on Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden and the way the Ravens are really stretching the field vertically this year.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are on a bye this week, but there is still plenty...
The 0-3 Browns will return to primetime with a visit to Baltimore to take on the 2-1 Ravens.
This game will be the first following the end of the NFL referee lockout, with real referees on tap to officiate tonight. So this means no more complaints, no matter how valid, can be attributed to poor officiating!
After a terrible performance in Week 1, it looked like...
The fan reaction to the return of the regular NFL referees in time for the Cleveland Browns to play the Baltimore Ravens is funny. While some fans where excited to see the return of the regular NFL refs, other said the Browns are going to need a lot more than the regular NFL refs to get a win against the Baltimore Ravens. The NFL extended the deal for 8 years to bring the referees...
With the NFL reaching an agreement with the officials to return to refereeing the league, it has kind of gotten lost in the shuffle that there is an actual game tonight. And at first glance, you’d think any match up consisting of the Ravens, who look like rue Super Bowl contenders in the early going, facing off against the hapless Cleveland Browns would be a pushover. But there...
The real refs are much better
Great to see a smooth game played. The product may not have been the best, but at least the refs didn’t add an additional hour and half to the game with constant meetings, reviews and overall ***********. Welcome back, refs. Here’s to hoping Ed Hochuli kept in shape over the lockout.
There was noticeably less Cee Lo last night
Our prayers were all...
