Kareem Hunt claims Cleveland took plays off in recent loss
Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt has only played a few games with his new team, but he is already calling out his teammates for effort. On Monday, Hunt said he doesn’t think that everyone was giving 100 percent in the team’s loss on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals.
“Yeah, I feel like there were some plays that everybody didn’t leave their 110% out there the whole play through the whole play, through the whole whistle,” Browns running back Kareem Hunt said, via Cleveland.com. “And we’ve all got to do that if we want to be successful.”
Hunt wasn’t willing to go as far as calling out one or two players by name, but made it clear he was disappointed in some of his teammates.
“I mean, yeah, I guess so but it’s everybody,” Hunt said. “You can’t point out one person or nothing like that. It’s everybody, and everybody’s got to do their job.”
Coming into the season the expectations were that the Browns would finally turn the corner and make it back to the playoffs, but that hasn’t been the case.
The Browns still technically have a chance to make the playoffs, but it’s going to be tough. To make the playoffs, the Browns need to win out. The Pittsburgh Steelers and Tennessee Titans also need to lose their final two games.
Winning out is going to be tough. Their next game is on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens and it’s going to take a perfect game on both sides of the ball to get the job done.
