The Cleveland Browns were hoping to see more from Deshaun Watson this season. Through the first couple of weeks, it hasn’t looked good. Against the Titans, fans were hoping to see some improvement. Instead, they got one of the most hilariously bad passes you will ever see in an NFL game.

Cleveland Browns Deshaun Watson Makes Horrible Decision
As Watson is going down for a sack, he inexplicably decides to try and make a throw to Elijah Moore behind the line. He completely misses him and Moore has to corral the ball. While he recovers, he immediately gets blasted by a Titans’ defender. This brought a firestorm of questions about Watson’s thought process in the play. This is not the type of decision fans want to see their franchise quarterback making.
Over $200 Million Guaranteed
The Browns gave up a king’s ransom to the Texans to get Watson in the building. They also gave him a huge fully guaranteed contract hoping he could be the quarterback for the next 15 years. Cleveland has seen a revolving door of quarterbacks in the past 30 years and was hoping to finally have stability at the position. Now, it is looking like the team may have more questions than answers at the quarterback position. This is not the type of decision a high-level quarterback makes. While every quarterback makes mistakes, this is the type of boneheaded move that can’t happen.
The Cleveland Browns need Deshaun Watson to start playing better soon. Otherwise, the trade may go down as one of the worst in NFL history which is never a list you want to be on.
