The Browns are sniffing the Steelers A$$es by two games now in the standings.

They played another horrible game. Two many mistakes. They need to fire Romeo and start Brady Quinn. The Browns season is lost.

GO STEELERS !!!

1st and goal on the one yard line...Anderson throws an interception in the end zone...isn't that the same kind of beef everyone had with Frye? besides that...the Browns have to be able to score on the ground from that didtance...great play selection.

From the 1...isn't that why guys like Darnell Dinkens and Vickers are on the team? Anderson is 6-5 or so...just sneak it in for crying out loud.

I hope they learned something from this loss.

Overall, we have to expect games like this with a young team and a new starter at QB. There is still a lot of upside with this team.

Grump..it really doesn't matter what the Steelers do..they can't beat Indy or New England. So, enjoy your one and out in the playoffs. I will. I'll also enjoy watching these Browns mature and thrash the Steelers annually over the next few years. Enjoy their resurgence, I assure you it will be brief.

I didn't really expect them to beat the cheaters.
As much as I dislike Bill B., he does have a great team. We'll get Miami this Sunday.

HEARTBREAK IS ONE THING.

THEN THERE IS JUST ALL-OUT BAD KARMA.

CLEVELAND HAS SUCH STACKED UP SO MUCH BAD KARMA SINCE MODELL SYSTEMATICALLY DESTROYED THEM AND MADE SUCKERS OUT OF THE 'CITY' OF CLEVELAND, IT ISN'T EVEN FUNNY.

(It never was funny.)

THAT FACT WAS CRYSTALIZED FOREVER IN SUNDAY'S SO-CALLED GAME.

THEY ROLLED OVER CLEVELAND LIKE AN F-18.

EXCUSES DON'T WORK WHEN YOUR 'TEAM' IS RUNNING-OFF MODELL'S KARMA AND YOUR 'TEAM'S' TOWN IS REALLY A LIVING/DYING GHOST TOWN.

THE PATRIOTS LEFT THE BROWNS RUNNING FOR THEIR LIVES AND BELICHICK HAD THE FIRST AND LAST LAUGH YET AGAIN.

ONLY THE LOWEST PUNK WOULD 'THINK' A PRO LIKE BELICHICK NEEDS TO STEAL SECRETS WITH A TEAM THAT RAGING HOT.

P.S. CLEVELAND NEVER HAD A SECRET TO BEGIN WITH.

They made too many mistakes, not just D.A., no pressure on the quarterback, - the next time a blitz actually works this season will be the first time, still can't stop the run. I believe they have talent but they are still making too many mental errors and against any good NFL team your going to lose. This is a trap game against Miami I hope they're not going in thinking this is an easy win or they're going to lose especially with the mistakes they make every week. Ronnie Brown has been running well and with the 100 yard back a week defense we have Miami's won't pass more than 15 times with Green out and teams have proven they can run every play and still get yards. This game can be a season killer, I hope not.

This team is unwatchable. Same old same old, no matter who the coach or QB is, bad play selection, bad execution, unfocused, mental mistakes. One thing I do find funny is that the Pats go through almost the entire game struggling to put up big numbers, but in the last 2 mins. they are able to pick up a suspect fumble and run it in for the spread saving score, (the pats covered by 1/2 pt).

Patriots, unable to put up big numbers?

Do you REALLY think they actually HAD to?

Not that the Pats HAD to, but were in position many times to do so and they didn't in the first half, if you can't score a TD from the one yard line against the Browns do you really look like at SuperBowl Team?
PS. All Browns fans who continune to watcha nd cheer for this franchise are masochistic.

EVEN A WELL OILED MACHINE DOES'NT RUN AT 100% YOUR WATCHING ONE OF THE BEST TEAMS, TO HAVE TAKEN THE FIELD IN NFL HISTORY. IF THEY STAY INJURY FREE AND THEY GET RICHARD BACK IT WILL BE A CAKE WALK .

Most of you are way to hard on the Browns...the Pats have made everone look silly this year. The Browns played them better than the Bengals did, in my mind. We need to address the lack of depth at rb in the offseason and get some run stoppers in the front three on D but the Browns are nowhere near as bad as you people let on.

Old Man Grump, a supposed Steeler fan who not only reads about the Browns but each week is the 1st responder with something negative to say about the Browns...

A real Steeler fan would be wrapped up in his teams' victory, talking in a Steeler forum with other Steeler fans...

Old Man you're a phoney, an inbred and probably a miserable person with bad breath and a fat wife...

Damn, I'm glad I'm not you... What a pathetic person!!!!

I agree with you. They should have stayed on the ground at the goal line. Losing Lewis hurt, but the Vickers/Wright combo didn't look too bad. I think the bigger injury problem in the game was Jurevicious. The Pats were able, essentially, to focus on covering Edwards and Winlsow after Jurevicious was injured.

I agree the fans here need to recognize the talent that they have here and unless they played the perfect game there was no way they could have won against the best team in the league yesterday. The front 3 needs to be overhauled and a better pass-rusher opposite Wimbley. They are getting better, I definitely see improvement if they keep getting better they can win 7 or 8 games this year. People need to be realistic they are a middle of the road team, we all want a super bowl championship, but we're still a couple of years away.

Why in the world are we passing the ball on 2nd and goal from the 3 inch line? That is on the coaches for calling such a bad play. Anderson is good enough to tease us and then pull the rug away. We need to move to Quinn sooner than later.
