The Cleveland Browns were on the short end of one of the strangest replay reviews in recent NFL history.After running back Carlos Hyde appeared to achieve what would like have been a game-clinching first down with 1:32 left on the clock http://www.thebrownsfootballauthentic.com/derrick-kindred-jersey-authentic , the on-field call was reversed by the replay official, who called for a review of the play.The call was overturned, Browns National howled in disbelief - as did many non-Browns fans - and the Browns would eventually go on to lose the game in overtime.On Monday, the NFL came up with an explanation for why it overturned a play that did not seem to have enough evidence to change the on-field call of a first down. According to an article by ESPN’s Kevin Seifert, an NFL spokesman said the replay official “pieced together” two angles of the play to come to the conclusion that Hyde was short of the first-down marker:Seems like the replay official did a lot of extra work to try and find a reason to overturn the call.Browns head coach Hue Jackson took the right approach about the questionable decision during his Monday press conference, according to clevelandbrowns.com:The replay was far from conclusive and it was surprising to just about everyone when the call was overturned. But that doesn’t mean the Browns defense has to turn around and let the Raiders drive down the field for a touchdown and two-point conversion to tie the game. Even so, this is one of those games that is going to sting for a while.Why I’m excited about the Browns this season It’s easy to get excited about any season, even the ones in which the Cleveland Browns ended up going 1-15 and 0-16 over the past two years Womens Jarvis Landry Jersey , respectively. Fandom often clouds our judgment before a season, even when we are trying to be fair outside observers for a second.But this season is different. I know — you can go ahead and start up the laugh track if you want, but the vibe surrounding the 2018 Browns seems to be trending upward, and here are just a few reasons why:When it came to replacing Joe Thomas, the team may have dragged their feet a bit on finding a solution, but give credit for Hue Jackson recognizing early in camp that it just wasn’t working at the position with Shon Coleman there. Joel Bitonio has made the quick transition over there and has played well, while also allowing rookie Austin Corbett to join the starting lineup at left guard.Cleveland now has a potent offensive attack. Last year, one could argue that Duke Johnson was the only credible threat on offense. This year Youth Denzel Ward Jersey , Jarvis Landry has had an excellent offseason, and despite the few issues still remaining with Josh Gordon, there is optimism to believe he will still be able to contribute to this team all year long. David Njoku, now in his second year, is already being utilized better by Todd Haley. And Tyrod Taylor ties everything together with smart play and not turning the ball over.Defensively, the first-team unit has been darn-near lights out in camp and during the first two preseason games. One big key is that almost everyone has stayed healthy (knock on wood). Myles Garrett has been disruptive on the defensive line, Mychael Kendricks has been a playmaker at linebacker, and the secondary has held their own.Last Youth Jabrill Peppers Jersey , but not least, Hard Knocks has helped build my excitement by seeing the way Hue Jackson is able to operate the team. Todd Haley gets to focus on being the offensive coordinator, and that opens Hue up to thinking more about game strategy, or observing from a distance to make better personnel and coaching decisions on the fly.Tell us, Browns fans — what has made you excited about the Browns’ 2018 season? www.nflshopoutlet.com/jacksonville-jaguars
