Josh Gordon completes historic quartet of games

Gordon AP

Browns receiver Josh Gordon was planning to make more plays than Patriots cornerback Aqib Talib on Sunday.

And Gordon did.

Following a franchise-record 261 receiving yards in Week 13, Gordon added 151 receiving yards against New England.  It gives Gordon 774 receiving yards in the last four games, which is the highest total generated by any player over a four-game stretch.

Earlier this year, Calvin Johnson generated 746 yards in a four-game span, which included 329 against the Cowboys, the highest production in any non-overtime game.

Gordon’s brilliance nevertheless has been wasted.  The Browns have lost each of the last four games, all of which came after the bye.

Still, the second-year wideout’s performance provides hope for the future.  If — and only if — the man believed to be in Stage Three of the substance-abuse program for the rest of his career can avoid another violation of the policy, which would get him banished for at least one year.

    Offensive Rookie of the Year?

    Wow… I thought only the vikings wasted great talent like that.

    Cleveland was robbed yesterday. I hope the ref’s enjoy their pay days.

  4. playgroundlgnd says: Dec 9, 2013 8:51 AM

    He missed 2 games at the beginning of the year.. and he is still leading the league in receiving yards on the season. He is absolutely ridiculous.
    If you arent a browns or a pats fan.. but are a football fan.. I recommend watching his 10 yd slant turned 80 TD vs Talib.. he was covered like glue but he someolhow stiffarms and strides away like a deer.

    Dude is just a beast plain and simple. He made Aqib Talib look like just another on of the guys. If he stays out of trouble he will wind up being a superstar WR.

    And he is currently being snubbed for pro bowl votes. The NFL hates the Browns, as evident by yesterday’s officiating. Once we get a franchise QB like Tom Brady all will be good. Calls will go our way, the QB can pretty much tell the official what the right call is, mysterious penalties will be called. I look forward to that time.

    Go Browns.

    Josh Gordon is a BEAST

    “But yeah, they should have traded him at the deadline” -

    Said people who know nothing of football.

    Confirmed beast and I couldn’t be happier to see Braylon Edward’s name nudged a few extra inches out of NFL history.

    Cleveland is about one healthy QB and a decent RB away, from being a solid team. We all know Weeden isn’t doing it for them, but Gordon and Cameron offer hope for them! I hope to see them improve next year.

    How did the Pats or 9ers not trade for this guy?

  13. gohomeweeden says: Dec 9, 2013 9:37 AM

    Yet he still hasn’t won afc offensive player of the week any of those 4 weeks.

  14. emmac13 says: Dec 9, 2013 9:39 AM

    Gordon is a BEAST! Even the refs could not screw him out his yards. Chud had 3 challenged and won. Then there were 3 additional bad calls. Intentional grounding- QB 5ft from sideline and receiver knocked over. Personal foul- Edelman was hit in shoulder. Pass Interference- mutual contact and pass was over thrown. The Pats are the biggest whiners to get calls. Edelman ought to just wear a flag belt.

    I hope Justin Blackmon is reading this. Its your choice pal.

    Amen brother.

    Imagine if he had a Quarterback throwing to him like Calvin Johnson does with Matt Stafford…
    Calvin Johnson is called Megatron, Josh Gordon should be the Beast from the East or The Brown Breme (Meaning: fierce; cruel; keen).

  19. brownmud says: Dec 9, 2013 11:11 AM

    Maybe a rule needs to be implemented for when a coach uses all of his challenge flags successfully that the head official be ejected from the game? Or, perhaps coaches don’t run out of challenge flags if they are successful in using them. Give every coach three challenges, use one and get it wrong, you lose it. Use one and get it right, keep it.

    i am a Dolphin fan and all I can say about Gordon is WOW!

    Oh & BTW I thought the Browns and their fans got hosed on that PI call late in the 4th qtr. Horrible time to take the flag out, you HAVE TO leave it in your pocket in that instance, i mean the contact had no bearing on Dobson’s ability to catch that ball IMO.

    No matter how great Josh is, Mr. Goodell needs the Pats in the play-offs, with the games going how they were yesterday the league had to give the Pats a little help.

    But this is not new……. Hoyer gets hit while sliding, no flag no fine and out for the season, Campbell takes a right cross to the helmet, no flag, Little is in a 2 hand choke hold while on the ground, no flag, no fine, add this to the jokes of the Phantom PI and those strange grounding/no grounding calls and we know the “Orange Helmet” exemptions are still in effect.

    To me this was Gordon’s final test. He comes in as the hottest receiver of all time against the greatest coach in the NFL. Everyone and their mama knew that Belichick would do everything to take away Gordon who has been 99.9% of the entire offense for the past 4 weeks. And he still eats… against a really good corner.

    Also this was the first time a corner has really gotten physical with Gordon. And he did a good job disrupting him early, but there is just one problem with that. He’s 6’3″ and 230lbs…

    Now hes on top of the receiving list this year, after missing two games, on an offense with no running game, and most importantly while in the middle of the most ridiculous QB carousel I have EVER heard of, and this is a Cleveland fan talking!! His production this year is nothing short of miraculous.

    Megatron is still at the top of the mountain but everyone else move over, its Flash Gordon’s time!

    Get this boy a Quarterback!

    Cleveland is only a few pieces away. AFC North will belong to Cleveland if they do things the right way.

  24. Mr. Wright 212 says: Dec 9, 2013 1:52 PM

    I don’t think the NFL hates the Browns, but they do hate the idea of a 4-8 team embarrassing their golden goose in Gillette. You guys were sacrificial lambs. How dare you beat New England and expose them as the 10-3 frauds that they are?

  25. kosarkid says: Dec 9, 2013 2:31 PM

    Gotta hand it to the front office on this one. First the T-Rich trade. And now the non-trade after Gordon was on the trade block. Earlier this year I predicted that Gordon would be dealt on draft day in the next draft, now I’m not so sure. He has definitely surpassed any fans expectations of how good he was going to be.

  26. godofwine330 says: Dec 9, 2013 3:09 PM

    I really love the comments from you guys in here. To do all he has with a QB carousel like we have here in Cleveland is just unbelievable. The fact that most of this was done with Bum Weeden as the QB is baffling. If he gets a QB and a running game he will be tough to cover. And at only 22…he has years to go.

    Blackmon couldn’t shine Gordon’s shoes on his best day

    He is only 22. His prospects are scary good if he keeps his head on straight.
