NEW YORK (AP) Comments on the Cleveland Browns by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):

---

CLEVELAND BROWNS (30)

Chris Berman (ESPN, 31) - Played tough in loss.

Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 29) - Pat Shurmur should be gambling more, with coaching job on the line.

Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 29)

Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 30) - The fact that they are 30th in rushing after drafting Trent Richardson is a huge problem.

Bob Glauber (Newsday, 31) - After Browns break winless streak last week, it's back to normal in a listless loss to the Colts.

Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 29) - Rookie Trent Richardson leads the Browns in both rushing and receiving. But he's averaging only 3.4 yards per rush and 8.2 yards per reception.

Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 31) - I could've sworn I saw a broom by Jimmy Haslam at the Browns' last game.

Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 28) - One day, their prince will come, and the Browns will put him under center.

Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 30) - Patience is the right ingredient with this young team and I hope the new owner and CEO have some.

John Lynch (Fox Sports, 30) - The best news in Cleveland is that Jimmy Haslam was approved as the owner.

Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 29) - Losing on the road to Indianapolis isn't going to please new owner Jimmy Haslam.

Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 30) - Unless Jimmy Haslam can rush the passer, he won't be able to help this team much this year.
