Myles Garrett: I think we’ll be very scary on defense

Wild Card Round - Cleveland Browns v Pittsburgh Steelers

After defensive end Jadeveon Clowney signed with the Browns, he said he is “looking forward to playing with somebody dominant on the other side in Myles Garrett.”

Garrett has similar feelings about sharing the field with Clowney. He said it will be fun to play with “an athletic specimen like someone I know on the Browns” and that he thinks the additions of Clowney, safety John Johnson, and defensive end Takk McKinley will create a unit that strikes fear into opposing offenses.

“I think we can do a lot,” Garrett said, via Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com. “I don’t know what we’re doing in the draft, that’s all up to man over there. But with the pieces we have now, I think we’ll be very scary, so I’m looking forward to it. Getting on the field, taking the ball away and putting it back in our offenses hands and them getting the ball back for us.”

The Browns made the playoffs despite being outscored over the course of the regular season. Building a defense that helps keep that from happening again would be a good way to make sure the wait for their next postseason berth won’t be as long as the 18-year drought they snapped last year.

  1. Of course you’ll be scary. At any given moment you’re capable of ripping some dudes helmet off and bopping them over the head with it.

  2. You’re already scary on D, particularly when you start smashing players with helmets.

  3. Last season, Browns defense allowed opposing offenses more than 1000 snaps and gave up more than 400 points, yet still won 11 regular season and one road playoff win. With any significant improve the on defense, yes they could be a force to be reckoned with. If they even got an average of two more defensive stops (resulting in two more offensive possessions) per game, that would be huge.

  4. Hmm. And yet he was underwhelming and mostly invisible when he was on the other end from JJ while he was winning DPOY’s and averaging 20+ sacks a year in Houston. And none of his teammates have ever complained when he left… and he always leaves… leaves disappointed faces in the rear view mirror. Legend in his own mind. Last thing you needed, Brownies.

  5. Can’t wait to see Myles and Clowney chase down( not too hard) old Blubber Ben and sandwich him. That’ll be worth every bit of those two contracts combined!

    They were 3-4 during the regular season against teams that finished with at least a .500 record. Should I also mention that one of the 2-14 Jets’ wins was against the Browns? It was nice to have the WFT, Cowboys, Eagles, Giants, Bengals, Texans and Jags on your schedule in 2020.

    Covid.

    Throw last year right out that window and do it again for good measure.

    You people just don’t get it. You think a team like this and a Buffalo are just automatically going to take another step. Prepare for disappointment.

  8. I give Clowney an over/under of six games before he’s out for the season with an injury.

    Did you forget they picked off your QB forty times in the wild card game. And they were a horrible unit last season.

  10. Browns will have a much tougher schedule this year. I predict they will go 8-9 unless they have a phenomenal draft. Releasing Richardson was really dumb. You still have Mayfield at QB which underhelms all the time. I looked up a stat that reveals how bad Mayfield is. In games where the Browns ran more than they passed they were 9-0. In games where Mayfield passed more than the Browns ran, they were 3-6, with 2 of the 3 wins coming at Cincy and at the Giants who were both awful. People lie all the time, facts don’t. The Browns won in spite of Mayfield not because of him

  11. Young team like the Browns could have benefited from signing a veteran with championship pedigree like Richard Sherman. Look how Brady brought winning culture to the Bucs.

  12. Nobody is scared of Clowney. Infact, offensive lineman lick their chops to go against Mr. I.R.

  13. Most popular item at the Browns concession stand this fall:

    A sandwich consisting of Myles Garrett And Jadavion Clowney with a heaping helping of “Big Ben” in the middle.

  14. AFC Is going to be a dog fight for playoff spots,don’t really see any one team running away with their division,only a couple of bottom feeders like Denver,Raiders,NE,Jets..otherwise U have Teams like KC,Buffalo,Cleveland,Baltimore at the top then Chargers Miami Colts,Steelers,Cinncy that all have potential too have a very good season..gonna be fun watching NE be the whipping boy once again like they were pre TB12 !!!

  15. Yeah, maybe in your mind. I can say that when my team plays the Browns, I’m not scared at all. I would honestly consider it an easy win.
