Cleveland Browns (1-7)
What they’ve done well: The Eric Mangini disaster has taken root in Cleveland, except on defense. If the Browns' defense was teamed with a better offense, they'd actually be OK. For example, the Browns are dead last with 409.1 yards allowed, but that’s the function of an offense that is almost never on the field. The defense is on the field for more than 33 minutes a game, and usually allow a chunk of yards late in games. However, they rank 16th in sacks with 16 and rank 7th in passes defensed.
Needs improvement: There have been awful quarterbacks in the NFL, but it’s hard to believe there’s been a worse duo than Derek Anderson and Brady Quinn. Neither has thrown a touchdown pass to a receiver. Additionally, no Cleveland running back has rushed for a touchdown. The Browns are last in passing yards per game (121.5) and 31st in first downs an outing (12.9). Much of this falls on Mangini who has created an atmosphere of distrust. There don't appear to be any solutions, either.
