Am I the only one waiting for the NFL to return to Cleveland? It's here in name only. And how about the press conferences talking in one breath about Cleveland needing to lose the "woe is me" attitude, and the next breath you hear the same person talking about how there was no talent here when Savage and Crennel arrived. That is no less a "woe is me" attitude than Browns fans complaining when their team plays like they don't belong with the Magnificat JV girls field hockey team. I'm at the age where I didn't really grow up with the Browns b/c the were gone. I grew up with the Tribe, Cavs and Ohio State and this organization needs to realize that people my age will be lost as fans if they can't show some sign of fielding a winning football team.

I can not believe no one on this board has mentioned the real reason the Browns are such a mess, any Browns fans left need to blame Art Modell. He was such a horrible businessman he could not make it work in Cleveland with all the support, he moved your team with a sweetheart deal and still lost the new team, he is the true curse of Cleveland

For all you Steeler fans---Did they make the playoffs last year? They beat a pitiful team.Let's see how worthlisburger does against Cincy, Baltimore, and New England. Then, you can brag. The Browns are the Pirates of baseball. They pretty much get beat every night or game. I still root for their sorry butts because I live here and remember the Jim Brown days. That's when the Steelers were like the Browns now and the Indians were like the Pirates now. It all goes in cycles. When I was young NOBODY thought the Indians would ever have a shot at the World Series. So, I'll root for my Browns, hope they do better, and someday actually win more than they lose.

hey hey hey...what can i say... most think that pro's shouldnt need a motivator, but having fat albert running the team obviously isnt doing the trick. this team has more talent on it than it showed sunday, and when you cant even decide which qb is going to lead you into war, how do you expect players to get motivated for their leader. every game has turning points and mistakes. if you believe in the guy that is running the show, you make some opportunities and get back into the game. when mistake after mistake is made by your qb the whole team eventually lets down. the key is for the coach to get a pulse above 60 bpm, and start quinn. i think these players believe he is going to be a good pro and overcome any rookie mastakes he may make along the way....period
LMAO@the fat albert thing.

You are pathetic. A win is a win, and the Steelers left you dragging your pathetic *sses all over the turf. Good teams blow out teams they should blow out, which is exactly what we did to your Clowns. Make antother excuse and shift the attention somewhere else all you want. It still doesn't change the fact that the Browns are pathetic from the waterboy to the owner.

I love Stelers Fan comments like that...it reveals your true education. "WE" Browns fans don't play for the team. We don't work in the front office and we don't sign any paychecks. So nobody I know of got "walked all over." The team we root for lost again. We'll move on and lead our lives. I suggest you get one and quit living through your team's on-the-field abilities.
The Steelers once again, gave your beloved Browns (or wait, not YOUR Browns. What I meant was, the team that you root for) a "true education."

You won't live through your teams' on-the-field abilities because your team doesn't possess any kind of on-the-field ability. It would be a joke for you to do so.

Talk about education, what's all this "WE" shit about? Your an idiot dude. Maybe you should go back to school. Just keep mourning your first of many losses this season. My heart goes out to Brady Quinn and how he has to play for a loser team with a loser for a coach.

At least you Cleveland people have the Indians. Look at what we have for a Baseball organization.... The Pirates????? So don't feel bad. You have a good baseball team, we have shit. We have a good football team, you have shit.....

Okay, now we see the problem: they're playing the wrong sport! That's why Charlie Frye is always throwing knuckleballs and sliding on his back! Thanks for clearing that up, Paul.
