Browns’ Mike Pettine: Crowell, West more explosive than Tate

BEREA, Ohio — When describing the running back position, Cleveland Browns coach Mike Pettine said he’s looking for a high-performance vehicle.

That would make Ben Tate a family sedan in this equation — good gas mileage, dependable, but zero to 60 can be a problem.

Isaiah Crowell and Terrance West have combined for 72 carries the past three weeks because they don’t have that problem.

“Three’s an explosiveness there with the young backs, just a little bit more pop,” Pettine said.
