Baxter was not good, here. Even when he got injured. Both knees injured on the same play. I was wondering about that. He took a lot of salary cap space because of his huge signing bonus. Defensive Backs are going to be a huge problem this year. I hope I am wrong. Eric Wright, who-else. Bring back McCutcheon - who I liked because of his size - 5' 9" and great tackling ability.

I have come to the conclusion that the Browns would have won - 3 super bowls if not for the death of Safety - Don Rogers, in June, 1986. He was a first round pick out of UCLA in 1984. Great selection. He was coming into his own in 1985 and overdosed on cocaine at one of the former players bacheler's party, I believe. He would have made a huge difference in the AFC Championship Game in the Drive Game against Elway. The 3rd and 18 completion to Jackson over the middle I can still see in my mind. The crowd rore was deafening the moment the play took place.

The Browns would have had confidence after that game and would have wonm , maybe two more. 1986 champs were the Giants. That would have been a great super bowl. I am getting tired of thinking of past Brown's misfortune. Please make the playoffs this year and beat the Steelers in Cleveland.

You are an astute Browns fan and I commend you on your passion. However...Nothing or no one could of stopped the drive. Prevent defense killed us that day. We should have kept pressure on big toothed Elway and things would have been much different. It is a shame that things ended the way they did.
Moving forward....we need to forget and jump on this band wagon. WE have a great team here now!!! THis is our year bro.
mike johnson dropped the ball, interception, on the 3rd play guess that why he was a linebacker
