Browns Wide Receiver Jarvis Landry

 

On how frustrating it is to lose in a poorly played game:

“Very. They played a great game today. They dominated in pretty much every phase. That’s the moral of the story.”

 

On how to explain the Browns’ losses with such a talented roster:

“You can’t, that’s one of the things you scratch your head about. There’s a lot of guys in here that work hard and will continue to work hard, and that’s the biggest thing.”

 

On his heated exchange with Head Coach Freddie Kitchens:

“I just went and asked for the ball. Just trying to get involved in the game and help. That’s pretty much it.”

 

On what he discussed with Kitchens on the sideline:

“I just went to ask for the ball. I felt like I hadn’t touched the ball since the first quarter and we were inside of 10 minutes left in the fourth and I hadn’t touched the ball.”

 

On the shovel pass trick-play:

“It was a play we have a history with. We ran it earlier this year and we had success so we figured we would disguise it a little bit different and try to see if we could get the same result.”

 

On if he was upset with the way he wasn’t getting the ball during the game:

“I just thought that at that junction in the game  I didn’t want the game to get too far out of hand. I was just trying to do whatever I can to help the team .”

 

On if when he gets the ball the offense is better:

“Yeah, just playmakers in general. I think you continue to get guys the ball, continue to get playmakers the bal we have success that way. I didn’t feel like I was really involved today.”

 

On if the team respects Kitchens:

“Everybody respects Freddie. I will continue to be loyal to Freddie and everything that he’s doing here. Just because we had a difference today, and it seemed like we had a difference today to everybody in the world, doesn’t mean that I don’t have respect for him. I still have tremendous respect for him.”

 

On why the Browns aren’t playing their best football:

“I don’t know, all I can really control is what I do when I get opportunities and do my job.”

 

Browns Safety Sheldrick Redwine

 

On his emotions following the loss:

“It’s always an emotional loss losing any game. We don’t play to lose, we play to win. So every game that you lose hurts.”

 

On the most challenging aspect of defending QB Kyler Murray:

“We knew he brought another dimension to the quarterback position, being an elusive runner. He used his ability to the best of his ability to create plays.”

 

On if the Cardinals’ hurry-up offense was more difficult to defend than anticipated:

“We knew they were going to come out fast, that’s something that we practiced. It just helped them the way they installed the offense, having a lot of moving pieces and moving fast helped them.”

 

On the overturned pass-interference call:

“That was a tough play for us. We didn’t think it was pass-interference, but it’s just football sometimes it goes that way.”

 

On the missed tackle with Browns LB Joe Schobert:

“I’m going to put that on me, I should have kept my head up and wrapped up. ‘Scho’ was just trying to make a play. Like I said it was just another football play where something didn’t go our way. I should have kept my head up and wrapped up.”

 

On other than the loss what the most disappointing aspect of the game was:

“I wouldn’t say anything is disappointing. Like I said it’s a loss, we don’t want to lose. We’ll just go back to work when we get back to Cleveland, make the necessary adjustments and prepare for Baltimore.”

 

Browns Linebacker Mack Wilson

 

On what made the Cardinals running game difficult to stop today:

“I just feel that we beat ourselves. They came ready to play, and I feel like they executed their game plan very well. I just feel like we didn’t do a good job with that.”

 

On how disappointing this loss is going into the final two games when a playoff spot was on the line:

“It’s bad. It’s a bad feeling. It definitely leaves a bad taste in your mouth. We don’t know what’s going to happen next. All we can do is try to go 2-0 the rest of the season, correct the things we messed up on today and just move forward.”

 

On if he’s able to enjoy his first interception:

“I was exited I caught one but I’m supposed to do [stuff] like that. It is what it is.”

 

Browns Wide Receiver Odell Beckham Jr.

 

On how disappointing the season has gone given the preseason expectations:

“It’s unfortunate. Obviously we want to make the playoffs but as long as there’s a chance we’re going to keep playing. All we can do is focus on Baltimore and winning that game. And then focus on the next and whatever has to happen happens. It’s just tough.”

 

On how sad it is that the team’s playoff chances are almost out of reach:

“It’s tough. We wanted an opportunity to make it to the playoffs. I guess we have to wait and see what’s going on with everybody else. All we can do it focus on the next game and just keep your head up. In retrospect, there will be many more football games. Just prepare for next week and see what happens.”

 

On the inconsistencies on offense:

“It’s just been unfortunate. There’s been a lot that’s going on. It’s just been tough for us. As a team we’ve stuck together. We just didn’t have the outcome we wanted.”

 

On WR Jarvis Landry’s frustration on the sidelines:

“I didn’t see it.  When we have a guy like that who puts his all into this game, endless hours of rehab, his craft and his attention detail in the film room, he wants to be great. We speak legendary things and when you come out and you don’t have the same opportunity to do that, it’s tough. We love this game that much. We care for it, probably too much. Unfortunately we’re more than a football player, but it is our life. It’s such a short window of opportunities that every time we want to take advantage of it and make the most. I understand him. I just know he wants to be great.”

 

On if he would consider sitting the last couple of games to rehab if they were eliminated:

“It’s a decision that we’ll figure out when the time comes. But as long as ( Landry) is on the field, as long as these boys are out here, I’m going to go out there and give my all. I love football way too much to think about sitting out and doing all these things. I’m here for this team. We’ll see better days.”

 

Browns Guard Joel Bitonio

 

On what went wrong today:

“We got our butts kicked in all aspects of the game. They came out better than us. We came out flat. We didn’t do much well today. It was one of those ones where everybody is just not feeling well.”

 

On how disappointing their play was today given that they were in a playoff hunt:

“I think we have to look at each person. Look at the individual and see what happened to bring that energy. It’s the National Football League. We’re grown men. You have to be ready to play each and every week. I’ve been in positions where we’ve been 0-14 here and you have to be ready to go. It’s your job. There’s pride on the line no matter what your record is, especially when you have a chance to keep playing games. It was just one of those things that we didn’t have today.”

 

On why he thinks guys weren’t ready today:

“I don’t know. You’d have to ask everybody individually. I thought we had a good week at practice. I thought we were focused. The game plan was fine, we just didn’t execute well enough. Then you come out and they go down and score. We give them the ball back and they go down and score again. We finally got the run game going a little bit, but we never got a stop and never converted when we needed to. I don’t know why we started so slow.”

 

On what he wants to see out of the team in the last two weeks:

“Just win. Baltimore is a heck of a team. They’re playing for first place in the AFC. We have to come out and protect our house against a divisional team and just win games.”

 

On if this season is extra disappointing compared to others he’s experienced:

“Yeah. We’ve blown a few chances this year early in the season but we had a chance to keep momentum. We’ll see what happens down the stretch but we had a chance to keep momentum and we didn’t do a good enough job. We pretty much laid an egg today. That’s not something you want to do when you’re fighting for your playoff hopes.”
