Coach Saleh’s Response Raises Eyebrows
Following the game, a reporter confronted head coach Robert Saleh about his seemingly calm demeanor in the face of yet another defeat. “Do you want me to throw the podium on the floor?” Saleh retorted, clearly displaying his frustration before concluding the press conference.
Joe Flacco Shines as Browns’ Savior
While the Jets continue to struggle offensively since the loss of their star quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, in Week 1, the Cleveland Browns have found a glimmer of hope in Joe Flacco. Since joining the Browns last month, Flacco has led the team to a 4-1 record as their starting quarterback.
Flacco’s Stellar Performance
In Thursday’s game, Flacco showcased his talents by throwing for an impressive 294 yards in the first half alone. By the end of the game, he had accumulated 309 passing yards, along with three touchdown passes and an interception. Reflecting on his performance, Flacco expressed his gratitude, stating, “You don’t know how many of these moments you’re going to get. I’m going to remember this for the rest of my life.”
Flacco’s Redemption After Struggles with Jets
Prior to joining the Browns, Flacco endured a challenging three years with the New York Jets, during which he only managed a single victory in eight games as a starter. However, his move to Cleveland has revitalized his career, with Flacco consistently throwing for over 300 yards in four out of five starts.
Respect from Teammates and Rivals
Even Jets linebacker C.J. Mosley, who faced off against Flacco in the game, expressed his admiration for Flacco’s recent success. “Everybody always joked, even in Baltimore, was he elite?” Mosley revealed. “He’s showing it. Not a lot of guys, especially veterans like him and his age, just coming from home, hanging with his kids, do what he’s done. I told him after the game, it’s crazy to hear the Browns fans screaming, ‘Flacco!’ That was pretty wild to me, but I’m happy for him. Obviously, we wanted to get the win, but just as a friend, as a fan, I’m definitely happy for him.”
