His numbers looked okay today, but anyone who watched the game came away disappointed with Odell’s performance once again.

I still don’t know who to blame for it though. Whether it’s Odell himself, Baker, Freddie or Monken and the offense.

I’m not gonna be reactionary and say we need to trade the guy, but if this keeps up the rest of the season we’re gonna have to ask some tough questions about his future on the team.

They need to unload this guy ASAP. Just get what they can for him. He's a loser and he hasn't helped this team one iota- if anything he's hurt the team.
This is such a whack take man. How is anything you're seeing out there on Odell? He's an easy scapegoat. They lost the game today because of coaching, execution and a defense that can't tackle.

He's never won anything, he actively sabotaged his last team and he's got Baker mind-fucked six ways from Sunday. He's poison, just get rid of him.

Does anyone think he really wants to be here? Something seems off about this whole thing....just a question

He had a drop, but Baker needs to put the ball in the right spot. Not just for OBJ, for everyone. Why is every pass he throws back shoulder? The excuse is always, “OBJ can catch it with one hand he should have had that”. That’s bullshit. I’m not sure what happened to Bakers accuracy but it needs to improve.

Seems to me that he’s pissed off we are losing. I don’t believe anything is off? According to the team he’s been the perfect teammate.

I feel like Landry and OBJ taking a lot of time off in training camp disrupted their route running as well as their timing with Baker. Baker has made some bad choices and developed his own bad habits, but despite all the discussion about the Browns looking to practice hard in the preseason to get ready to compete right away, key players were actually not getting prepared.

This is a season where the Browns have a tough schedule early and a weak division. Things look worse than they should right now... bit the real goal should be building sustained success past this season. OBJ and Landry in the building help that happen.

yeah he was too busy this last off season chugging beer, riding around the streets of berea on recliners with stone cold steve austin and listening to his own hype and believing it.

I feel like there are times he isn't playing hard. Like giving up on the RPO route that lead to one of the interceptions.

Sometime you get more out of a player playing 80-90% of the snaps instead of 95-100%. It's something I think Dorsey wants more than anyone and it really only started happening when he got here. He wants his best players to play as close to 100% of the snaps. Certain guys can do it but I think for alot of players you get more out of them when you can keep them fresh and rotate them in and out.

I think some of the drops are a snowball effect of the QB and WR being out of sync.

Sometimes when Beckham is open, the ball is off target and uncatchable.

Sometimes when Beckham is open, the ball is a little off target and catchable.

Sometimes when Beckham is open, the ball is thrown well.

OBJ needs to clean things up but all the variance just makes it harder on everyone. It effects reaction time, route running, etc.

You see it across the board. Pass catchers aren’t sure what to expect this year when a pass is delivered, hell, a handful of times Landry has had to just not try to catch the ball over the middle because the throw was so bad he would be decapitated if he went for it.

Like many things this season, it’s a little of everything, which is the problem. We have so many little things going wrong it seems harder to get them all cleaned up.

Has OBJ had the word "uniform" defined/explained to him?
