Cleveland Browns Discussion


Recommended Posts

will we ever see the exciting young tandem of Winslow & Edwards?  Braylon just tore his ACL and will be out for the remainder of this season and likely part of the next.  By the time either one of them actually settles in or they play on the same day, they're not going to be so young anymore!  That, and they'll both be recovering from significant leg injuries...how will that affect their games?

 

On the bright side, Frye looked great on Sunday and Droughns finally ended a long-standing 1,000 yard rushing drought for the Browns... Do you think he deserves a new contract?

Err... all I know is that it's unfortunate about Edwards - he's quite a hottie and now we'll see less of him since he's on the disabled list!  :-D

As far as I'm concerned, Droughns has earned his money.  He's making chump change next year for a back with consecutive 1,000 yard seasons.  It would also go a long way towards player morale and future holdouts if we held up our end of the deal and renegotiated.

 

Other priorities are resigning Andra Davis and Roye.  I'd like to have Bryant back too, but he's a bit more replaceable.

Droughns is by far my favorite Cleveland runningback to watch in quite a while (But I do think White was way underappreciated).  Powerful and able to make people miss.  If Winslow can do the things he is supposed to be able to, we could have quite the high-powered offense next year.

Agreed! Don't you just love to look at the guys the white pants - even if its is well past labor day!

 

Lets just hope Northcutt doesn't get injured or the "eyecandy" factor will definately take a hit!

So I am guessing we don't want your takes on the Dilfer-Frye controversy?

 

As a big Browns, Indians, Cavs fan.  I'm not happy with either of our QB's.  I honestly liked holcomb.  and don't get me started on  that fuck*n winslow!  Mister, "I've taken 9 snaps -  and haven't played in the past two years - but still gets paid idiot!"  :x

There's no controversy to MayDay and MyTwoSense...Frye clearly has the nicer ass.  :)

 

If you call that an ass!  I prefer my men like missy Elliot says.....with a  ba dunka dunk dunk!  Not the JLo-esq culito.  but something you know is an ass!  lol

See I like Kelly starting.  He wanted to open up the offense and had the weapons.  As far as Chuckie is concerned, I thought he got off to a great start last sunday but the defense let him down.

The most popular guy on the team always seems to be the backup quarterback. 

 

Holcomb was adequate when he had protection, but when things broke down he was gawd-awful!  He had a noodle for an arm, but made up for it by making good decisions (when he had the time).

I think the big difference between the first and second half last week was that our offensive line called it quits after the second quarter.  Frye was getting hit hard on every snap in the third quarter and just barely regained his balance in the 4th enough to make a little progress.  The 3rd killed us, though.  What'd we have, -7 total yards?

Speaking of the O-line, where have they gone lately.  They started the season looking pretty good, but since have been very inconsistent.  The silly penalties they've been picking up lately don't really help either.

Overall, I was pretty impressed with him.  He made a few rookie mistakes which is to be expected; but I think if he's given more playing time he will continue to develop into a pretty good NFL quarterback.  I'm just tickled pink to see a QB in a Brown's uni who's got some decent mobility and is able to move the pocket.

Great arm- strong and accurate, good mobility.  Sometimes he makes rookie mistakes, of course, and sometimes I think he holds onto the ball too long.  Then again, because he can move, sometimes he is able to make something out of what looks like nothing when he does so.

Preview - Box Score - Recap

CLEVELAND (AP) -- The Pittsburgh Steelers didn't overlook the Cleveland Browns. They overran, overpowered and overwhelmed them instead.

 

Ben Roethlisberger threw one touchdown pass and Willie Parker busted off an 80-yard TD run as the Steelers improved their playoff chances with a 41-0 demolition of the Browns on Saturday.

Even if I wasn't a PA native... there is a region of Ohio that is solid Steelers territory... Youngstown through E. Liverpool through Steubenville, St. Clairsville, etc.  Even where I live in Wooster... I have met/seen/encountered many Steelers fans... I see Steelers fans all over the place in Canton... I wore a Steelers jersey in the heart of Cleveland a couple months ago and got tons of positive responses (and no heckling whatsoever).

^ditto wearing browns, tribe & cavs stuff around pittsburgh. its not like they've never been spotted - lol! we have family who are life-long crazy clev sports fans in donora, so it happens.

 

all this is nothing new. back in the day i noticed a lot of toledoans who were all tigers crazy during their 80's world series years, who could blame them it was a fun run, and then just as tribe crazy during their big 90's run. what happened? well the tiggers stunk then & the tribe got good thats what. so when the steelers stink again (no i wont hold my breath for that to happen anytime soon -- lol, but it will happen), and the browns get back to even halfway decent those people will be wearing browns stuff again. bordertown fans notoriously get to have it both ways in the sports world.
