07:17 AM ET 11.26 | In the wake of T.J. Ward's rant against the offense, Browns coach Rob Chudzinski chided his players about not pointing fingers -- Ward's teammates made it clear they didn't condone his remarks, either. "I understood his frustration," said D'Qwell Jackson, the undisputed leader of the locker room. "Everybody was disappointed. We put a lot into these last two weeks and to come up short it affects us all, but he's got to do a better job of controlling those emotions. This is the time where we don't need any division amongst any of us. I'm sure he regrets it. We haven't spoken personally, but he was speaking out of frustration. T.J. is a team guy. He wants everyone to do well and we've struggled in certain areas."

TJ Ward. D* ck of the Week.

If T.J. was a team guy, he would keep it amongst the team, and not give those opinions to the media. Not that what he said was incorrect, or outlandish in any way. He said you can't turn over the ball like that.

Just when maybe they have a bit of a pulse...oh wait, it's the Browns. Hit the self-destruct button.

If a NFL player rants in Cleveland, does it make a sound?

I thought they were lobbying for "kill buttons" on cell phones, not football teams.

Cleveland was once known as the Forest City.

how's that offense doing? In San Diego it's going well, very well. It ended up being addition by subtraction by getting rid of Norv. He's your problem now Cleveland, the game has passed him by, his offensive schemes are so yesterday. Enjoy your predictability
