The Cleveland Browns fell to 1-1 on the season after falling in upset fashion against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Tuesday. Star quarterback Deshaun Watson and the rest of the offense failed to get much going all game long. And Watson’s personal quarterbacks coach Quincy Avery seems to believe that their loss is on the Browns’ playcalling.
Seattle Seahawks defensive back Quandre Diggs posted on social media on Tuesday, posting a vague message about bad coaches with poor game planning.
“It’s funny to me that people who has no idea of game planning or assignments for each week try to tell mf’s what they should or shouldn’t be doing,” tweeted Diggs.

Avery saw this tweet from Diggs and appeared to agree with him, replying to Diggs’ tweet with a number of exclamation points.

Avery has obvious ties to Watson as his longtime personal QB coach. And most fans seem to believe that Avery is very much talking about the Browns play calling on Monday night.
Why make excuses? Shut up and get DW4 better, bad play calling doesnt equal overthrows and underthrows. Quit making excuses.

Is that Deshaun’s new defense? Game plan didn’t fit his strengths?

I don’t need to know game plans or assignments to know we have a half season sample size of Watson, and he’s yet to play one great game

I mean you can easily tell he was abysmal. It doesnt take a rocket scientist or expert to see he shouldn't have been doing what he was doing

Watson hasn’t exactly been the most efficient quarterback since joining the Browns last season. And early on this season, his performance has been mediocre at best.
Of all 32 quarterbacks in the NFL this season to start a game, Watson ranks 30th in the NFL in QBR on the year. That is only above Carolina Panthers rookie Bryce Young and New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson.
That obviously has to improve if the Browns are going to be serious contenders in the AFC. Whether the playcalling is the issue or Watson’s play just needs to be better, it is very clear that something needs to change quickly…
