WR Jarvis Landry (1.17.21)

WR Jarvis Landry:

On the disappointment of having momentum in the second half and not being able to capitalize on it:

“We just could not get the ball one more time. I am proud of this group. I am proud of this team. I am proud of everything that we accomplished. Obviously, this is a tough moment because you have come through so much in the way and the passion that we did, you want to think that there are a lot of positives, but you never want to lose a game. Our ultimate goal was to win the Super Bowl, and we did not do that.”

On being proud of the team for fighting throughout the game and season:

“Of course. Like I said, I am proud of how we played and I am proud of the things that we accomplished. We just did not make one more play than they did today.”

On if it is too soon to put the season into perspective and if he can speak about the foundation the team set this season:

“Like I said, we play this game to win championships. Obviously, we always have the mindset of one game at a time. We push each other that way, but you always have your end goal in mind. We accomplished a lot, but I think right now with all of the emotions, I can’t think of everything. Like I said, I am just proud of the effort and the way that the guys played and continued to fight, being down and continuing and just trying to fight. These guys, we created a high standard, and we have to find a way to beat these teams. This one hurts, but I guess that is part of it.”

On QB Baker Mayfield’s performance today and if he expected the Browns would score if the team received one more possession at the end of the game:

“Of course, I believed that. Baker has played well for us. It is tough. It is just tough.”

 

On the Browns making uncharacteristic errors in the first half:

“You can’t [make those mistakes]. Things happen inside of a game. You have to try to bounce back from them. We understand that the self-inflicting things can get you beat. I still believed that we had our opportunity to win this game. It is just tough.”

 

On if he saw LB Mack Wilson’s hit on Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes:

[Shakes head ‘no’]

On WR Rashard Higgins’ catch and fumble and if the rule about fumbling out of bounds in the end zone should be reconsidered:

“I don’t know. I think a guy on the other side made a good play. He made an effort play. Higg was just trying to make another effort play. Hats off to both guys for competing. It did not fall in our favor on that that one.”

On if he’s excited about the Browns’ future, including with the opportunity to add more pieces this offseason:

“I have always been optimistic since the day I stepped foot in Cleveland. It is Believeland, and we just have to keep believing. The right pieces will fall into place. We have a great team as is. If we can add guys, that can obviously help us getter better in certain areas. Obviously, that is not my call, but I know the guys who are here this year did a hell of a job this entire year, as difficult as it was, to make it as far as we did.”
