Gameballs and Goats: The Final Frontier

Let us now record for history our thoughts as the 2010 season closed...

Gameballs? GAMEBALLS???
G A M E B A L L S ??????? It takes balls to even ask for nominations for a game ball for an embarrassment like this!
He can't do it alone but sure tries to. Let's get some talent around him and we will be good to go.
bankone Everyone who still gathers here. Another crappy year but we still care.
Noble and pathetic all rolled into one.
dp10451 Only gameball for this game is for the fans for showing up to support this B.S. The game was as ugly as that damn goat on the homepage.
rutger None, No Dawson gets one for kicking for this team for the so long.
houndfromhell The Cleveland Browns Expansion team
never plays the Steelers with out fear
in their eyes and heart, if they got any.
Steelers players had a hard time trying to keep from laughing before, during and after every play. This is why
Mr. Hines Ward always smiles, he`s known for 12 years what any Clowns fans are just willing to admit today. This team is owned by a uncarring owner that will never spend a nickle toward it to get real N.F.L. coaches and players. May
as well get ready to watch them let any talent they did have, walk away. Just like Lenher made Bitch Davis do after they made the playoffs. He`ll probably try to hire some one on the cheap, like Mohrningway. Dont matter, he will only
get past their prime free agents and never weres to sign to play for this loser of a football team anyway.
Hell, even Holgrem dont want to trash his won and lost record by coaching here.
The Steelers fans may not be the best in the world, but they arent as neive and stupid as us fans that still follow this 12 year Expansion team.
NewDawgy Browns Fans for putting up with this. Seriously, even the Pope and Dalai lama would be getting drunk and rioting after a performance like this.
Phil Dawson for his service to the Browns since 1999
bohns75 We will miss you Phil. I hope you sign with a Super Bowl winner because you certainly deserve it after all the years being sentenced to Cleveland.
redright All 3 gameballs for Mike Holmgren...cuz any guy that can pocket TEN MILLON by just occupying the best seat in the house is worth it!
JSinCT If you can still claim to be a fan of this dismal team after another pasting by the Steelers, Hats off to you.
There are no gameballs to be given. Maybe the Waterboy as the Browns looked like Waterboys out there playing the Steelers.
TomahawkDAWG Reggie - Another solid day for you. IMO the best punter in the AFC.
Phil - So long buddy. It's been a fun 11 years. Best of luck to ya. God bless.
Robo - Another TD...is that 3 straight games with a TD? Nice.
BP - Solid snapping...the usual.
DixieDawg Beer. Only saving grace to this POS team.
roscoe2009 No gameball's for this team, they mailed it in.
mddawg28 41-9 ... with a score such as this, there can be NO gameballs.
FANS! - 'NUFF SAID
No game balls until September.
Here's a gameball to Big Mike for getting rid of the Rat. And here's a gameball to the successors of Dull Daboll and Rotund Ryan.

What a PATHETIC excuse for an NFL team! The town clown, aka Rob Ryan, can now take his precious defensive stats (which he whipped out at what was hopefully his last presser) and cram 'em where the moon doesn't shine! Holmgren needs to act quickly if he's going to put together a genuine, competent, and experienced coaching staff. Five other teams will be vying for the same guys. Good luck, Mike. This team has actually regressed (who'd have thought that even POSSIBLE a year ago?)
Going for 3 when down by 14 and nothing to lose?!?! Please go away!!!!!!!
bankone Because of Art 2 generations of Brown's fans are lost to that giant piece if ick 150 miles east of here.
bluezhound today was a total embarrassment .. back to square 1 again ... I Bet Holmgren swings a big axe by high noon Monday !

total disappointment in how the once promising season ended with a big THUD!
dp10451 The entire organization has let down the fans once again. We deserve better! I'm damn sick and tired of seeing the officials calling the games in favor of the Squeelers every damn game. You're telling me that they never saw holding by Pittspuke the entire game? B.S. Ian Eagle has no idea of the pain we Browns fans feel every year.I think my wife could have wrung his damn neck and I'd have helped. Am I pissed? You can bet your ass I am. At least we have seen the last of dumbass Daboll.
rutger Mangini gets all three because he lost the game and the players the instant he kicked a FG down 14-0 in the 1st quarter on 4th and 1. And what the hell was the purpose of going for 2 down 41-9 on the 4th quarter then? What 41-11 sounded better at that point??? That's three games in a row that Mangini has made rediculous, mind numbing calls like that.
houndfromhell Who should the Clowns draft? I guess whoever they hate the most, because they will destroy their career by dragging them to this expansion team.
I wonder if Lerner feels bad at all, being the loser owner of the expansion Browns?
NewDawgy Too many comments. It'd be like writing a book.
MeatAndPotatoes Thanks, A-holes, for a total waste of time and season. F*** all of them.
For not stepping in sooner. It is time for you to put YOUR STAMP on this team with YOUR CHOICES. If that means you hire a coach or are the coach just please get it done!!!!!!!
bohns75 Rob Ryan is all talk and no bite. He only had one good defense in Oakland. He is strictly window dressing. Get rid of him, too.
Other BJK Goats - Entire organization, entire offense, entire defense. Gameballs - none.
QUITTERS
fatazz blowhard sure got after the steelers' asses today - he spent the entire game smelling them
redright NONE.......no sense in kicking them on their way out.
Because he is a goat.
SacTribe It didn't look like the coaches even cared today. I think they already know how the meeting with Holmgren is going to go.
JSinCT I blame Policy for cursing this team from Day one. If not him, then the idiot who thought hiring Eric Mangini was a good idea.
The entire defense and coaching staff
This team stinks. They should sell this team to another state. The real Cleveland Browns I hate to say it are the RatBirds. This team is a fake. Not one person worth the money they are paid to put on this kind of show. Played like Waterboys against the Steelers. I have seen better High School Teams play. I am just disgusted anymore. To many bad Sundays for me because of this Make Believe Team called the Cleveland Browns.Not the Cleveland Browns that I knew growing up during the 50's and 60's. Pathetic is what you have today in Cleveland. Poor accuse. Should fire everyone and start over once again. Maybe I should just route for my home teams the Jets or Giants instead of the Browns. Is it so much to ask for Cleveland and Randy Learner to put a good team together that could compete on Sunday? I don't understand how this team can beat the New England Patriots and New Orlean Saints and give much,much trouble to the New York Jets a game the Browns should have won. What happened to that team? Was it a Mirage we all saw? WTF
WE WERE FLAT. NOT READY TO PLAY. WHAT HAPPENED TO THIS TEAM???
TomahawkDAWG F you Stoolers, your fans, your city, and your inbred families. Damn, jealousy is ugly.

Browns, you as an organization are as embarrassing as the other Cleveland sports franchises. Glad it is over and ANOTHER year of looking forward to the draft.

CBS, you suck. Just saying.
DixieDawg You can at least get glue from a dead horse. You can't get jacksquat from this team except MISERY.
Pathetic!!!!!!!!!!
Time to get rid of the coaching staff and old players who play even though that couldn't block, tackle or run with high school kids.
roscoe2009 That was the worst game i ever saw the Clowns play, they quit before it started. The whole coaching staff has to go, Mangini,Daboll and Fat Ass Ryan what a fucking joke. I thought T.J. Ward was a special player, but yesterday he didn't even try and fat ass Cribbs got his new contract and quit producing. He is a return man and not a wide receiver.I have been a fan for 54 year's and this is bullshit, Lerner need's to sell this team,the NFL got the last laugh gave our team to the family that helped Art move our Browns.
djw333 Good riddance, Eric. You really do suck.

Eff you, Robert Royal.

Nice effort, defense.

Way to stand there and watch Colt get his ass kicked, O-line.
mddawg28 Ben Watson may have had a good game, but his alligator-armed attempt of a catch on the first pass to him resulting in a tipped ball interception, set the tone for the rest of the game. The one handed attempt at the ball on a pass over the middle was a very cowardly play.

TJ Ward has to learn to not let anyone behind him on cover 3. Wallace's TD was Ward's fault. Those kinds of mistakes are unacceptable.

Eric, let's evaluate the situation. Let's see ... it's the last game of the season, your job is on the line, your team is down 14-0 and your defense hasn't shown up yet and you have the ball inside the opponent's three yard line on 4th down. I know ...Let's kick a field goal! I cannot conceive of what Mangini was thinking. It is game day decisions such as these that will probably cost him his job.
GET RID OF MANGINI NOW, AND HERE ARE SOME REASONS.......

1 CLOCK MANAGEMENT SKILLS
2 IN GAME ADJUSTMENTS
3 NOT REALIZING WHO NEEDS TO SIT (DELHOMME; E.RIGHT; J. LEWIS) AND WHO NEEDS TO PLAY (WALLACE/MCCOY; HADEN; J.HARRISON)
4 HIRING AND KEEPING DABOL
5 SETTLING FOR FG'S AND NOT GOING FOR IT ON 4TH DOWN
6 UNIMAGINATIVE GAME PLANS AGAINST SUPPOSEDLY WEAKER OPPONENTS
7 BACK-TO-BACK LOSSES TO 2 WIN TEAMS IN DECEMBER.
8 ALMOST LOSING TO A 1 WIN TEAM
9 A 4 GAME LOSING STREAK TO END THE SEASON.
10 THAT THERE ARE 5 OUT OF 12 NEW TEAMS IN THE PLAYOFFS THIS YEAR COMPARED TO LAST YEAR AND WE ARE NOT ONE OF THEM
11 ME - FOR STILL CARING ABOUT THIS.
Atrocious game plan, piss-poor effort all around, nearly unwatchable football. May this be the last time we see Eric Mangini on the Browns' sideline....
Sunday's game was a total embarrassment and an insult to the fans of Cleveland. Monday was a day to rejoice!
bhodosko The Browns fans who sold their tickets to Steeler fans.
