Bob Hunter commentary: Browns are interesting, if not always good | The Columbus Dispatch

Full story: Columbus Dispatch

The Browns have to be one of the more interesting 4-7 teams in NFL history. They beat the hapless Carolina Panthers yesterday - sort of - but the game really wasn't the thing.

Bob,

Watching an NFL game sometimes feels like you're watching a series of ugly mistakes interrupted occasionally by a farce of success. The clock stopped when it shouldn't have for Carolina with 5 seconds left -- then their usual sure footed kicker doinks a 42 yarder off the upright post? Browns win (cough).

The Buffalo Bills are bemoaning their own chances this morning. I doubt that their wide receiver got much sleep after dropping a gimme in OT? Meanwhile in Indy, Peyton Manning threw pick after pick in head scratching fashion last night.

It's a crazy league. The Browns seem to fit right in.

I never thought I'd say this, but Colt is the guy. Although I doubt we will ever be a high powered offense with him at the helm, I do like what I see with him and Peyton at the helm. They had a 10 minute drive last weekend against Jacksonville and kept the ball for most of the first half. What Colt lacks in skills, when compared to some of the premiere QBs in the league, he makes up for in smarts. That kid is efficient.

I know that history of our Brownies and, while I like what I see, I'm not going to hail him and Peyton as the new generation quite yet. I do, however, think that Colt at this point is the QB of the future and NOW. Sorry Jake. You lost your magic last year and I don't think you are going to find it again.

I know that the NFL is a crazy league, and every team has weird things happen in games that make you shake your head. But I defy anyone to explain how their team of choice lives a more tortured existence than the Browns. The Bills might be close. But sheer lunacy like my Browns? I laughed out loud when Hunter wrote that "Mangini frowned so much his teeth almost broke". My wife told me to cheer when they won because I had yelled at the TV so much in the 2nd half. Couldn't do it. Just shook my head. Doesn't matter who the coach is, who the players are, where the game is played, ect. The Browns are participants in the weirdest collection of games in the NFL period. Maddening to be a Browns fan. Start McCoy when he is healthy. He is young, needs to develop, and it doesn't feel like a game of Russian roullette (see Delhomme, Jake) every single time he drops back to pass.

The reason Carolina let him go was the fact he will throw away a winner with all the interceptions. He was good earlier in his career but every team knows where he will throw so they look for that. The Brows with a play here & there could be 7 & 4 easily.

Bench him, better to have him mentor Colt than QB

Jake is not the QB of the future, Colt MIGHT be. They should play Colt the rest of the year to see whether or not they are drafting a starting QB next year or not (Seneca Wallace can be the back up either way). This isn't to say Colt will always look good but the coaching staff needs to get as many looks at him in real games as possible if they are to make a judgment.

The Cleveland Browns are not the best team in the NFL, but they are an Ohio Team, and deserve our suppoert! If (Hunter) wants to watch a winner let him pack his S**t and move somewhere else!

The only way the Panther's went from their 5yd.line to the Cleveland 25 yd.line with no time outs is Cleve.went to that insidious "prevent defense".
Deboll is also an inconsistent play caller.Ergo,the CB's bad second half's of games.The run up the middle to Hillis when they were on Carolina's 25yd.line with a 4th and one proves that analysis.Everyone knew hillis would get the ball,he should have been a decoy or should run to the outside.

Colt would have played yesterday if not for his ankle sprain. I'm sure they will play Colt as long as he is healthy. What is Seneca's status? Is he ready to go again?

An interesting team, alright, during a strange season for the entire league.

While not a Browns fan, I hope Colt and Peyton stay health. The southern tag team is just too much fun to watch.
