Are the Browns getting a reputation as a physical football team? We’ve heard all season after teams have played the Browns they seem to have more respect for what the team is building. Then we heard from the Ravens how much they didn’t enjoy having to tackle Trent Richardson.
Against the Steelers the Browns were popping running backs left and right. They created turnovers. Some of those were on punishing hits. So are the Browns creating an identity as a physical team? Pat Shurmur was asked that question yesterday-
“I know we played a physical team. Again, I don’t want to overstate it. Its one football game, but we played a physical team and we found a way to finish. I think that’s something I think our young guys can build on. I don’t think there’s any question there. I saw some veterans in the locker room yesterday that were as excited as the young guys because there are a lot of guys around here that haven’t had great success against Pittsburgh.”
