Browns punter Jamie Gillan: I cost us the game

USA Today

Browns punter Jamie Gillan fumbled a snap in the fourth quarter on Sunday, setting up the Chiefs’ game-winning touchdown. He says the loss is on him.

Gillan called his dropped snap a “massive mistake” and added, “I cost that game.”

Still, Gillan said his confidence isn’t shaken.

“The whole point of my position is to be a weapon and to help out the team and obviously there I didn’t. But things happen, right?” he said, via Marla Ridenour of the Akron Beacon Journal. “And that hasn’t changed my outlook in practice or anything. I’m still this happy-go-lucky-likes-a-pint-or-two person. To be honest with you, I’m really happy this happened in Week One, you’re trying to find a silver lining in every cloud, right? And to me it’s a reset button, right? I can’t punt the ball without catching it, so I better catch it next time.”

Gillan said he has caught thousands of snaps in his life, and to the best of his memory that’s the first one he’s ever dropped. It was a rare mistake at a very inopportune time.

  1. I dont understand why Kevin Stefanski isnt getting more heat. This clown cant even figure out the best way for the Browns to win. Hint Hint it isnt having Baker Mayfield throw more than 15x. If stefanski ran Chubb and Hunt 35x and threw Mayfield 15x, The Browns would win every game by 10+Points. Stefanski has no idea how to call plays.

  2. @howboutthemcowboys I think you’re thinking about the wrong team. It’s when Dak racks stats they tend to lose. Browns looked just fine and lost to the best QB in the game who – yes has done that before. I expect I’ll be going deeper in the playoffs with Baker than you will with Dak this year. And stefanski will continue to have balance.

  3. Not your fault kid. You could have pinned Mahomes and I still would have given him (them) the edge. Just don’t do it again!

  4. “I dont understand why Kevin Stefanski isnt getting more heat. ”
    __________

    Going out on a limb and guessing it’s because he wins most of his games and he’s the first coach to win a playoff game with them since 1994.

  5. @Coach Redd. Heres a great idea after Kareem Hunt just ran it down The Chiefs throats for a TD. Lets start calling pass plays with our below avg QB. Genius. Said no one that has a clue about football

  6. “ I dont understand why Kevin Stefanski isnt getting more heat. ”. Stefanski becomes the first coach in eons to turn the browns into a winning org and this dude wants to call him a clown

  7. Browns arent making the Playoffs. They arent even going to have a winning record. Hows JOK workinf out for you and his 1 assist? Browns fans were ready to Put JOK in the HOF after a preseason game vs the Jags. There is a reason you fans get a bad rap. Youre delusional and myopic and overrate the mediocre players and bad players on D. The offense is loaded. Too bad you have a below avg QB. Baker Mayfield couldnt carry Daks jock strap

  8. I don’t know about him losing the game. Yes it made it quicker for the Chiefs to score, but there were still a couple possessions after that.

  9. Brownspronator, you need a QB, a HC, a Defense, and an owner LOL. Hey how many Super Bowls you been to Browns?

  10. “I thought he still could have gotten the punt off.”

    He panicked….

    He was probably checking the rush and not watching the ball into his hands.

  11. Love the honesty and ownership culture developing with the Browns players. Yes, it’s a team sport so everyone has a critical role to play. It’s crazy that some people treat Mahomes as though he is God. I am sure most of them don’t understand football or are fantasy players. Didn’t they see what happened in the SB when the Bucs made him run for his life on pretty much every play? It’s not a given that Mahomes can drive 70 yards every time he touches the ball.

  12. Maybe yes, maybe no.

    But either way, forget about it. Learn from it. Move on from it.

    Win the next 16 games. Win out through the playoffs. Win the Super Bowl.

  13. Well at least someone is stepping out and taking some responsibility. Here’s what needs to happen. Baker needs to be a little more impactful. They have the playmakers and the defense. There’s talk of him getting an extension. I realize he set the rookie record for TDs that has since been broken. I realize they made the playoffs last season. But look at the skill players around him. Shouldn’t he be doing more than 300yds and a pick especially with extension talk? I mean the Chiefs are the bar in the AFC right? I understand it’s the opening game but he’s no rookie. He’s gonna have to carry this team sometimes if they have any chance to match the hype.

  14. It’s funny how the cowboys play in easily the WORST division In football, yet still manage to not win the division.

    When was the Cowboys last playoff win? It’s ok, we’ll wait while you get out your calculator since it will take more than fingers and toes….

    Can’t think of anything original? Meanwhile, the Cowboys haven’t done squat! The future for the Browns is much brighter than that of the Cowboys. Enjoy being mediocre in the worst division in all of football!
