The Week's Results
Gameballs and Goats comments are always a lot more fun to read after a win,
and this week was no exception. With few goathorns to hand out, Browns fans
showed their usual inventiveness, particularly when finding appropriate epithets
for CBS TV Announcer Randy Cross, who irritated many Browns fans last Sunday.
The top three were pretty clear, with William Green, Courtney Brown, and Phil Dawson getting props, while the remainder of the gameballs were handed out a
little less enthusiastically. Not many goats were handed out this week, with
Steve Heiden's drop earning the most negative mentions.
|William Green (31/RB)
|Courtney Brown (92/DE)
|Phil Dawson (4/K)
|Tim Couch (2/QB)
|Chris Gardocki (17/P)

||The Human Battering Ram. Rules. That is all.
||Even though Couch's stats didn't measure against the past couple of
weeks, he managed the game beautifully and showed poise throughout the whole
||What do you say about Green that two 100+ yard games don't say? Courtney
is suddenly thinking Pro Bowl, and you gotta give the DBs credit for
whitewashing the Raider wideouts.
||Green--can't say anything about his performance that won't probably be
said by a million people, but he was flat-out awesome. Brown--really for the
entire defense, but Courtney's looking a pretty good freaking player right
now. Dawson--a 52-yarder for the second-leading rusher on the team.
||The whole team deserves a game ball for the win at home. But, just to
pick a few, Willie had a great game. Just what we needed. Tim didn't stand
out, but he didn't do anything stupid. And how 'bout "Awesome Phil Dawson"?
Great game guys.
||Another solid performance by the Cleveland Defense and C. Brown....
||1.The Officials get one for the make-up call (Where Rice was called
out-of-bounds on 4th Down) at the end of the game. It was a make up for the
Tim Brown Reception Out-of-Bounds that the Officials didn't even bother to
review. 2.The Defense for shutting down The Raiduhs. 3.Jerry Rosburg gets
one for having the guts to call that Fake Field Goal, which in my opinion
was the turning point of the game. 4.Gardocki & Dawson each get a gameball
for perfect execution of the fake field goal.
||Steamin Willie Beamin!!!!! He looked good again and the confidence is
growing. Phil did a great job and had a career long. Nice run and excellent
play calling on the fake. Courtney looks AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Nice game
with another sack and pressure. The defense is really on a roll.
||Have to give a gameball to the Raiders Offense for melting in the 2nd
||Back-to-back 100 yd. games 3 punts inside Raiders' 20 Leading tacklers
Great Team effort guys
||Phil ran the ball like a champ, and he can kick to! Tim Couch 2-1, the
guy is a winner...Willie Green with two consecutive 100 yard games!!!!
||Couch exercises the demons at home; Courtney Brown continues to impact
games and Willie has back-toback 100 yard games. The OL looked good as well.
||Gardocki is absolutely incredible. Courtney again served up another
round of crow for his critics. Dawson delivered not only on the long FG but
also made the play of the game on the fake FG (even though he ran like he
had a load in his pants!).
||Yes Virginia there is a running game errrrr Santa Clause
||Willie Green- What a day!!! He carried the load and proved that last
weeks 100 yard performance was not a fluke. C.Brown- All over the place. He
has been impressive to watch the last few weeks. Dawson- He wanted the td
and was not afraid of the contact. He is a tough mother and a hell of a
||TC-a game, gutty performance. Green-slick Willie w/ 2 games over the
century mark? Yeah, baby! Dawson-clutch play of the year, completely changed
momentum of the game.
||The Defensive backs were outstanding today. Held the two future hall of
famers down. Its becoming a standard for them to be blankets and was nice to
see Lehan playing even if he scared me to death at the end.
||Tim did a good job managing the game, and let Green do the heavy
lifting. Davis and the rest of the defense kept the Raiders contained all
||Phil was great with the 2 field goals and the fake field goal run. Willy
made up for his 1st drive fumble to give us the go ahead. Courtney Brown is
playing very well (JUST STAY HEALTHY). Timmy did his part and didn't turn
the ball over.
||that was the loudest i heard it in the stadium in awhile
||You gotta give it up to the special teams for executing the crucial
motivation changing fake field goal!!! Not to mention the incredible job
pinning them within their 10.. Great class on defense constantly sending
pressure as well... Interesting last call though -- we finally got one to go
our way!! :)
||great defense today. William green had a great game. Gardocki had some
beautiful key punts.
||WHAT GREAT GAME FOR OUR DEFENSE, I AM REALLY IMPRESS, YOU TAKE AWAY 5
RUNS IN THE RAVENS GAME AND WE ARE ONE OF THE TOP RUSH DEFENSES. CON GRADS
TO WILLIAM GREEN, BUT HE WOULDN'T HAVE GOTTEN ALL THOSE YARDS WITH OUT OUR
LINE. I KNOW I HAVE BEEN CUTTING THEM UP, BUT THE LAST 2 WEEKS THEY HAVE
REALLY GELLED. TIM ANOTHER SOLID GAME, ONLY 127 YARDS BUT WE DIDNT PASS IN
THE 2ND HALF. HE NEEDS TO STAY THE STARTER, I LIKE HOW HE HAS BEEN LEADING
THE TEAM AND PLAYING WITH PASSION, LIKE HIS FIRST 2 SEASONS. LETS NOT HAVE A
LET DOWN THIS WEEK, LETS KEEP BUILDING OFF THIS SUCCESS, NO LET DOWNS....GO
||I ALMOST FORGOT, C. BROWN, ANOTHER GREAT GAME.
||William Green - Willie is really starting to bring it on...144 yrds on
26 rushes...AWESOME!!!!! Keep it up Willie! Courtney Brown - CB is a
monster!!!! He is bringing it big time this year. I think he is FINALLY
healthy!!! Lets hope he stays that way, he is earning himself a trip to
Hawii in Feb. (hopefully a pitstop in Houston the week before!). Tim Couch -
Yes, the stats weren't the greatest, but this team is just playing better
with Timmy in there. And what guts did he show to get out of that near sack,
spin away, and throw the ball out to Heiden (who DIDN'T CATCH IT). TIM IS
THE MAN, KEEP HIM IN THERE!!!!! ENTIRE D - Throughout the off-season moves and
preseason this unit was supposed to be a weak spot of the team...WRONG! They
have shown massive improvement over last years high priced underachievers.
O-line - another gutting performance by the o-line. Barry Stokes is a true
warrior to be in there game in and game out while injured. This unit is
finally showing sign of gelling, and pass and run blocking much better than
earlier in the year. Phil Dawson - Nice run on the fake field goal!!!
FANS!!!!! - WOW!!!! Listening on the stereo, and watching on TV, I felt like
I was in the Dawg Pound for as loud as the fans were. Great job getting to
the Raiders!!! Keep it up fans, make it even louder against San Diego next
||Nate Hybl - GREAT JOB for a rookie QB's first game, but why was he
wearing jersey no.2 ?! Green - Awesome job, great determination !! Brown -
We are looking at a Pro Bowler !!
||Phil - Run, Phil, RUN!! Chris Gardocki - twice inside the 5 today...Sit,
ball, sit!! Good ball!! Courtney Brown - he was in there all the time...just
didn't show up in sacks Green - back to back 100+ games...that'll do, Will.
That'll do, but your fumble gave Oakland their only score, so I'm putting
you behind Courtney.
||Green had a great game! OL opened up some nice holes for him to run
through. Tim played ok but not bad. Running game was the reason the Browns
won today. Defense also came up big only allowing 7 points! Nice job boys!
Dawson is the man!!!
||The D-line had the third gameball until Phil ran like the wind, run Phil
||While Couch didn't have stellar numbers, he managed the game effectively
nd helped the running game by getting so many offsides penalties with the
hard count. When the Defense can't predict the snap count and are worried
about penalties, it gives the offensive line an extra advantage and it
showed. No one in the NFL has a better hard count than Tim Couch
||Way to go Willie!! How awesome was it to see you drag guys with you down
the field?!? Dawson, you da man! Courtney is not officially ON FIRE! Fans
were AWESOME in this game!! Couch with yet another good start (although he
got lucky a few times).
||Jump on his back and enjoy the ride, Line were a bunch of road graders ,
Defense was huge again, and I can't forget CB
||One for Stokes... He ran down to the Dawg Pound after shaking hands with
his arms wide open and leaped over that wall to all the Fans...That was the
one thing that was sorely lacking in CBS ever since it opened...... It was
the most beautiful sight I ever saw...Next to Chad Mustard in his #83
||Phil Dawson- first, the guy makes a 52 yard FG in the swirling wind.
Then the guy has kickoffs consistently go to the goal line. Then he does his
best Greg Pruitt imitation running for a 1st down on the fake FG, which
ended up being the key play of the game. William Green- ran like a monster
in the second half, and finally got into the endzone for the first time this
year. He more than made up for that stupid fumble on the opening drive.
Courtney Brown- maybe, just maybe, we are starting the see the player I fell
in love with in college and who I was urging the Browns to draft 3 years
ago. The fans at the stadium- That was one of the loudest crowds I've ever
heard at that stadium. And I was proud to be a part of it, and partake in
it. You guys made a load of difference today!!!!!
||best game of Gdub's short career. he & Courtney are on fire.
||William Green - He tired the Raiders D, which sealed the victory.
Courtney Brown - If you watch him, he is making plays everywhere - plugging
holes, tips, slaps, bull rushes, and even pass defenses. Plus, he's quietly
on pace to lead the NFL in sacks - just his style. Chris Gardocki - The
league's best at hitting a ball a couple hundred feet in the air and having
it land without bouncing. Field position was key in this game. The Raiders
never really could get going because of it.
||WG is starting to come into form. Two 100+ games in two weeks. CB is
starting to prove ME and all his critics wrong. Thank God, Warren you
hearing this. The Entire Defense. Week after week in victory or loss, they
have managed to stop the other team and keep us in. Shutting down Jerry Rice
and Tim Brown for most of the game, deserves a game ball.
||5 Penalties in a row by the Raiders. Bill Callahan should be ashamed...or
maybe our home crowd is starting to make a difference...
||Congrats to the fans!!I could hear them the whole game through my TV. If
the POSITIVE vibes continue the rest of the year ;CBS could truly be a
daunting place for opponents again.
||That's what i like to see. The browns are starting to gel a little bit.
Great running will. Keep giving him the ball
||MAN, I'D "HATE" TO FACE THAT BEAST CALLED "WILLIAM GREEN"! DRAGGIN'
PEOPLE BY HIS SHIRT-TAILS...REMINISCENT OF SCHOOLYARD FOOTBA'LL, EXCEPT THESE
ARE PROFESSIONALS, RIGHT? GREAT GAME.
||William Green - carried the team offensively today. O -line - Opened
holes and gave Tim time to throw. DB's - Shut down the Raiders geriatric
||The crowd noise shorted out all the Raiders' hearing aids and was
directly responsible for at least half of the Raiders offensive penalties.
Fans get a BIG gameball for being the 12th man this week.
||Run Willie run . Great call by Coach on fake field goal . Phil 2 fg's
and nice catch and run on fake. Courtney led defense was awesome. Go Dawgs !
||O line and Green get the nod for tough grind it out football. Gardocki
deserves some credit for the pitch!
||Phil Dawson was a big part of the reason we won, William Green was a
pleasure to watch with some good hard running, and Courtney led our Defense
that played a great overall game.
||I can't believe I just gave our kickers 2 of 3 gameballs. LOL!! Kudos to
the OLine for opening the holes for WG's 145 yards.
||Great game by Courtney Brown again. Keep it up and he is in the Pro Bowl.
William Green, other than that fumble, great game. Keep ramming that ball
down the other team's throat. P. Dawson, nice run on the fake. Lower the
boom next time on that DB.
||Breakout year for Courtney. Finally we get to see Cleveland run the ball
to end the game. I can't believe I saw a defense that held Jerry Rice to 2
catches, none in the first 3 quarters. Hats off to the fans in attendance, I
could hear you all the way in Yuma, Arizona!
||Willie Green - Two straight over 100 yards, fantastic. Finishing games
strong and chewing up the clock is even better. The O-line deserves some
credit here as well. Tim Couch - Got over the hump of pressing too hard to
please fans who love to hate him. He has the same kind of passion for the
game that us Browns fans do. Defense - The statistics speak for themselves.
If WG does not turn the ball over, our defense pulls a shutout (next week
maybe?). Courtney Brown continues to stand out. Butch Davis - How dare we
question this man. He got us to the playoffs two years removed from 3-13! We
sometimes (ok usually) doubt some of his player moves, but he no doubt is a
winner. The performance of his new defense backs his speed theory up. Let's
keep this ball rolling next week!!!!! Go Browns!!
||Brown is quietly having an amazing season. He isn't massing a ton of
tackles, but he will have double digit sacks, and could have more than 5
forced fumbles before it's all over. The defensive backs were awesome,
shutting down the Raiders passing game. Rice and Brown combined for 4
catches for about 40 yards. gotta love that. Run William, Run!!!!!!
||I give the biggest gameball to the line judge who called Rice out of
bounds to wrap up the W for the Browns. Future Hall of Famer or no, his knee
looked like it was out of bounds and the Line Judge was right on top of the call.
Finally, a call that goes the Browns way in the final minutes! Things really
might be turning around in Cleveland.
||Is that a good thing when your punter is getting gameballs?
||Green was awesome, as was the line led by Faine. Davis keep up the
motivation, and let's keep this winning streak alive. All other coaches,
great game plan.
||Phil Dawson scored 7 and William Green scored the other 6 behind a great
O-Line this week. Green must learn how to hold onto the ball, however with
the help of the O-Line he led all NFL rushers on Sunday with 145 yards!
||Loudest game I have been to since the return
||three first round picks are really playing well. although total tackles
may not favor warren, he was all over the field and very disruptive. Dawson
deserves credit too, nice run Forrest.
||Many of Green's big runs came behind Shaun O'Hara. He had a great game.
Gardocki had 3 punts inside the 20, two downed inside the 5.
||Good old Al Davis is my Gameball recipient this week for bringing a team
in that has legs about as fresh as his. Keep up the good work Al and thanks
||Dawson had some key punts bury the Raiders deep. Plus, his fake field
goal/run brought back memories of Bernie Kosar's speedy scrambling! The
O-line is playing great, considering they are pieced together at the last
minute and playing hurt. The entire "D" smothered the Raiders.
||C. Brown has to be the biggest plus of the season so far.
||Courtney could be comeback player of the year. Phil Dawson made the play
of the game and also kicked a long field goal. Except for the fumble a
career day for Green.
||Holy smokes how good did Courtney and Willy look? O-Line, you guys got
better as the game went on - sweet!!
||Willie Green looked like a pro bowler, C. Brown caused havoc again and
Dawson chugged his way to the biggest first down of the game. All of that
pales in comparison to the ineptitude of the Raiders, thank god they are the
most undisciplined team.
||Dawson probably collapsed when he got home because of all the action he
got on field. The defense continues to amaze--everyone thought our D would
be awful, who knew it would be one of the best in the leagues!!
||Green found his wheels for sure in this game, the o-line did a fantastic
job run and pass blocking and once again C. Brown is finally showing us why
he was #1. The crowd gets a game ball as well. The fans where insanely
loud... it shows by the 50000 false starts that Oakland had.
||Because the house was "ROCKIN"
||Coach Davis: Thank You for Coaching to WIN!!!!!!! "When you risk
nothing, you gain nothing." Please, Please, Please Keep The (body part
reference removed) Out!
Couch: YOU are the leader of this team, as all the "W"s next to your name
would indicate. Wizard Green: I was 11 yrs old the last time we had a back
to back 100 yd rusher. Thank You! DEFENSE WINS CHAMPIONSHIPS! Go Dawgs!
||Great game management by Butch, continued terrific play from Ben Taylor, and a career day for Willie.
||It's tough -- picking Green, the O-Line, and Dawson means I have to
ignore a defense that really clamped down.
||i love life and i love the Cleveland browns and tim couch should start
||Rice, Brown and Gannon may be old but they still can light it up... way
to go DBs.... Defense once again looked great, only giving up a TD when the
Raiders were handed great field position... WAY TO GO DEFENSE!
|section 527 dawg
||Crestwood is 7-1, baby!! We are coming after YOU, Warren Red Raiders!!!
Good to see "The Battering Ram" get the ball again!!!
||gameball to the lone radio in the reception hall at my family reunion
||Gardocki - 2 HUGE punts downed inside the 10. Great job recognizing the
front on the fake FG and making a good pitch.
||Green is turning into a superstar and Couch keeps on winning......
||Willie Green makes up for his fumble in a big way. Dawson with the big
1st Down and the 50 yarder. Courtney is now playing where he belongs - the
||This was a painful game to watch with 25 penalties, but I loved the
outcome. Ben Taylor, C. Brown, Robert Griffith, and Rushing Offense get
honorable mention. I love the way this team is playing right now.
||No one has been able to block Courtney Brown for the past two weeks.
That's the guy we drafted with the #1 pick. Casey Coleman says it best,
"Awesome Phil Dawson", you rocked yesterday Phil. And Congrats to William
Green. You're looking like a star, kid!
||Loved the o line. I hope BC Willie buys them some beers this week.
Courtney Brown is no longer so Quiet. He dominates out there. Brown, A.
Davis, and Cutch are playing great right now. Kudos to Campo
||Couch: Great hard count. Good game management. No picks.
||run Phillip run !!!
||This is the Courtney Brown that we've all been waiting for. He has done
more than the stats show. Couch gets a gameball for just avoiding that sack
and throwing a perfect pass to Heiden...could've been an ESPY.
||Green is a no-brainer, but I think Gardocki should get the number one
gameball here. Were it not for the TWO punts he dropped inside the 5 yard
line, one late in the game, the field position battle is lost.
||Great to see Northcutt rockin-n-rollin again. Hope he is well.
||The fan's attending the game from what I hear, were sensational, with
all the bad press they have had lately, it is good to hear positive comments
from not only the coach, but the opponent's too. Raider penalties were very
helpful, as this was not your average GOOD game played. The fact remains,
you have to win the UGLY ones too.
||Couch looks great. He had 3 balls dropped and made good decisions on
throwing a couple away. With the dropped passes he also lost 40 + yards and
maybe a touchdown. Give this guy a running game and protection and he will
win. William green running hard. Hang on to the ball! Being more patient
now than in earlier games. Brown, he is now playing like a first round pick.
Keep up the intensity CB. Finally , did you all see big money Warren all
over the field.
||Couch--A QB needs better and more consistent help Courtney Brown and
Warren---came to play! Phil Dawson-- 2 Field goals and a surprise run, gotta
give a game ball to a guy running because he is told to run; especially when
he looks like he is running for his life.
||Dumb penalties by Zukauskas kept Couch's stats from being better...
||The special teams had a rough day. Green gets one for the fumble. And
Randy Cross -- "The knee was in! The knee was in!" -- SHUT-THE-****-UP you
Rice-a-Roni swilling know-nothing JACK***!
||Heiden--add in his 40-yard TD catch, and Couch has a great game instead
of a decent game. Zukauskas--sorry Butch, you whiffed on this one. What a
stiff. B. Davis--you're still on my sh-- list big guy...we're winning in
spite of you at this point.
||The only thing I could find to complain about in this game was Chris Crocker. He has to be aware of where the ball is on kicks and punts. If you
ain't fielding the ball, stay away from it.
||Key drops by Morgan and Heiden let Raiders have a chance to win.
||Not a whole lot to complain about.....They need to cut down on some of
the special teams penalties and get out of the way when the ball is bouncing
||That was actually worse than Warren Sapp's so-called "Beyonce"
pogo-stick dance. (PUH-LEESE! I'd rather look at Beyonce's booty than
Sapp's.) What has happened to the art of the end-zone celebration? Remember
Billy "White Shoes" Johnson, The Electric Slide, The Earthquake, The
Six-Shooters, The Fun Bunch and Slaughter & Langorne's Flying High Five?
||Nice drop Heiden...
||Quincy Morgan needs to be the #4 WR option. War Andre Davis(WR)......
||Once again, I have decided to award 3 goathorns to Carmen Policy. I hate
||great game...just win baby!!
||Its time for all fans to support "the Deuce".
||Randy Cross was pulling for one of his Bay area teams on top of being as
bad as usual. I'd rather hear an ex-Bingle announcer do our games. Nothcutt
loves to fair catch inside the 10 yd line - he has at least 1 boneheaded
play every game. If yellow flags were going to be throw so often, surely one
should've been thrown on Al Davis' wardrobe. NFL officials suck. Heiden has
no talent and his only fans are his family and Butch.
||A great win, but hand the horns to special teams, Heiden, Sanders and
Chris" getaway" Crocker
||Crocker- Don't touch the damn PETER!!!! Zuk- Stop holding, you kill
drives! Heiden- How do you miss that pass? Where was Flemister???
||I'd goat Couch cause he still holds onto the ball to long, but we won so
i won't. I'll give one to Al Davis just because he can bite the hand that
feeds him and get away with it.
||No goats this week!
||Arians calls many bad plays that puts us in too many 3rd and long
situations. Lets speed it up because that seems to be the times the offense
gets in a rhythm. Special team coverage sucks. Holding penalties are pretty
much expected on every decent punt return. Excluded from this goat award is
Dawson and Gardocki who both played awesome. Lets have the offense from the
Pitt game back on the field against the Chargers. It'll take consistent line
play and intelligent play calling.
||Hold on to that ball there Heiden!!! You can't drop passes like that...
||play calling was way to conservative. o-line committed too many
penalties. it seems like we were 2nd & 15, 3rd & 12 all day. Heiden catch
the ball when it is thrown to you.
||WE NEED TO COVER ON KICK OFFS BETTER AND WRAP UP AND STAY IN YOUR LANES,
THESE ARE BASICS THEY TEACH YOU IN HIGH SCHOOL, IN A FEW WEEKS WERE GOING TO
BE PLAYING IN KC AGAINST D. HALL, WE ARE GOING TO HAVE TO STEP UP FOR HIM.
ALSO TOO MANY STUPID OFFENSIVE PENALTIES, GET YOUR HEADS IN THE GAME.. BUT
MY BIGGEST GOATHORN GOES TO RANDY CROSS, DAM HE NEVER HAVE ANYTHING GOOD TO
SAY ABOUT THE BROWNS, HE IS ALWAYS SWINGING THE N**S OF THE OTHER TEAM, I
HOPE SOMEONE FROM CBS READS THIS, HE LIKE MOST OF YOUR OTHER ANNOUNCERS SUCK,
BOY I HOPE AFC FOOTBALL GOES BACK TO NBC, I LIKED THERE COVERAGE THE
BEST.... GO BROWNS!!!
||Steve Heiden - The ball was in his hands and he did not catch
it...inexcusable!! Bruce Arians - Please throw out the screen play to
Morgan, it has only worked once, and has not since then. Start throwing the
ball down field more. Stop running on 1st down 99% of the time, mix it up
for change!!!! Officiating Crew - while there flags help the Raiders shoot
themselves in the feet, if it really necessary to throw a flag after every
kickoff???? Raiders - What happened to this team? 8 1/2 months ago they're
in the Super Bowl, now they look more like they're ready to enter a
retirement home. Ratbirds - Why couldn't they lose to the Card??? I know the
Cards suck worse than the Ratbirds....oh welll, Stillers at least lost
||The moron announcers completely messed up in their analysis of the
replay of the Rice reception with 23 seconds to go. They failed to note that
there was an official right on top of the play who made the call. They also
failed to note that there had to be clear evidence to overrule the ruling on
the field. There most certainly was no such evidence in the replay. the
announcers were, in short, total morons. Two drunks on a barstool could have
done a better job.
||Northcutt gets goathorns for running out of bounds on the 3rd down play
at the end of the game. If he stays in bounds, the clock goes all the way
down to the 2 min warning.
||Couch - Poor showing, 2nd Half of Bengals game. Poor showing, 2nd Half
of Steelers game. NO SHOW, the whole Raiders game !! Facing the worst
defense in the AFC, and they prove it by dropping 5-7 interceptions !
||Crocker - nearly gave Oakland the ball at our 30 on that punt Heiden -
catch the damn ball!! that one could have been a touchdown!! Couch worked so
hard to get that ball to you!! D-line in the 4th quarter...the Raiduhs can't
run. Why didn't our D-line know that? CBS announcers - just go marry Rice
||Al Davis just sucks. The wide outs get the goat along with Robieski cause
Timmy could have lit up the raiders if someone other that Jamel was open
||Just what we all needed right?
||I just can't do it......I can't ......It was a Beautiful Day and I wish
I could relive it... But there is next week with the REAL Kardiac Kids in
town... Look out Sipe Baby!
||Steve Heiden-Catch the freaking ball when it's placed perfectly in your
hands!!!!!! And your blocking still needs some work too!!!!! Paul Zukauskas-Although
you did have some good blocks today, quit holding already, will ya?!!!!!
Bruce Arians-Again, too much conservative playcalling. Open up the offense!
Throw downfield once in a while!!! God, I sound like a broken record!!! Al
Davis-for still being alive. He and Art Modell should have side-by-side
||What a JackA**!!!!!!!!!!! (Randy Cross)
||Coaches - Why do we have to fall into such a conservative mode, trying
to hang onto a 6-point lead? Couch had 52 passing yards in the first quarter
and only 127 on the day. Man, put them away when they said uncle in the
third quarter. That last defensive "stand" looked an awful lot like "Foge"
Football. Steve Heiden - Normally rock solid, he dropped a key first down
pass (through his arms) that would have probably led to another score.
||The only two undefeated teams Chiefs and Panthers, have great return
games. Where is ours. Northcut had a 4 yard average? That is picky, I know.
||You have to make that catch Heiden...
||Why does griffith keep getting beat for Touchdowns? And where is the
special teams at. They need a little work.
||OVERALL SOLID GAME, SO NO GOATS THIS WEEK. LET'S HOPE THIS TREND
||Could only come up with 2. Heiden and Morgan have got to stop dropping
||Special teams - do we have to get a flag on every other kick? I think we
need to work on the 'get the f away from the ball' drill.
||Do not ever show the other teams fans unless they are being pummled by
Browns fans at the time.
||I found it funny that there were so many mouthy Raiders fans in the
stadium before the game, but on the way out after the game, all the Raiders
fans had mysteriously disappeared.
||Penalties are still hurting offense. Chris Crocker had the only bonehead
||It wasn't the officials fault that the Raiders are so undisciplined, but
try to keep that flag in your pocket, would you?
||The game could have been more exciting but the Browns did what the
needed to win. No goats other than Policy.
||For chuck Pagano - Why is Michael Lehan covering a hall of famer with
the game on the line. For Butch - That looked a lot like "prevent" at the
end of the game
||Jerry Rosburg for our horrible punt return and kickoff return teams.
Quincy for not blocking worth a crap downfield. The Officials for throwing
nearly 30 flags. Of course, the 19 for LaOakland were all legit, LOL!!
||Heiden. WTF kind of catch was that? If that was a catch and you took it
to the house, that would have been the play of the game. Special teams need
to cover better on kickoffs and punts. We will get burned on kickoffs and
punts if we don't get much better at it. Policy, you are still a F-in snake.
||Once again Quincy drops the ball. Chaun has got to play better on
special teams. I hold my breath every time we kick off.
||we won. No Goathorns.
||Steve Heiden - Nice catch, right in the numbers. Quincy Morgan - You say
you want to be a #1, go to receiver, but your play on the field says
otherwise. Hang onto that pass (like a #1 receiver would do) and Willie
punches it in for 6 and we don't have to sweat out the ending. Fans - Why
boo? Handing the ball to WG has proven to be a key to this offense. Stupid
Endzone Dance - What was that guy doing? Waiting for one of his teamates to
||Both goats are for all of the holding calls which messed up drives or
gave poor field position.
||Heiden's drop on a perfectly thrown ball by Couch would have taken on
Northcuttian proportions if the Raiders had scored on their final drive.
Couch couldn't have placed it in their any more gently. That ball must be
||Coach Davis needs to draw a map to the QB for big money. I did not see
him take a lot of double teams on Sunday
||Crocker run away when Northcutt yells "fire." Zukauskas, I like the
physical style of play, but eliminate the stupid penalties, those could hurt
down the road. Griffith, don't let a rookie punk you like that, knock him on
||Thompson and Zukauskas for repeat penalties, and Heiden for missing a
perfectly thrown ball from Couch.
||Quincy is killing me in fantasy football with those drops
||Lehan was toast on the overthrow at the end of the game. can not let a
receiver get by you like that. Morgan just continues to drop passes,
critical ones too. yes, he got drilled, but that is why they get paid.
||Heiden dropped a key pass that would have been a TD. Morgan talks a big
game, and says he wants to be a #1 WR, but if he is going to be, he needs to
catch the ball. Thompson- two penalties on ST, can't have that.
||Scoreboard Teyo. And that was a great push off by the way.
||Morgan turned in another lackluster performance. The coaches have got to
quit playing so close to the vest, especially with Marty coming to town. Mix
it up this week or San Diego will beat us. Last but not least, I'm getting
tired of having a coronary every Sunday. I love it, but one of these days
I'm going to stoke out.
||Man, what an undisciplined team!
||O-Line penalties really stalled some drives. Special teams penalties are
way too common.
||Again Heiden and Morgan dropped catchable balls that killed drives. no
wonder they stayed on the ground for the final drive. If Thompson is only
going to contribute on special teams the least he could do is not cause
||Butch - gotta go for the throat and put the game away yourself, not hope
and pray that time runs out. Should have gone for the touchdown. HOW MANY
TIMES DO YOU NEED TO DO THIS?!?! FOR THE LOVE OF PETE, JIMMY AND SAMMY
TOO!!! Couch - I wish you would have followed up last week with another
solid performance. You played like you did when you lost the job. Hope you
get better real soon. Dre Davis - don't drop first downs, please.
||The officials called a ton of penalties robbing the game of any rhythm.
(although most were obvious against Oak.) Pontbriand was a 5th rd pick and
hasn't looked nearly perfect, he was saved by Gardocki today. Thompson
committed 2 penalties on special teams.
||Rice, time for you to go take your nap and stop whining.
||Griffith continues to get beat. Arians sometimes calls plays that make
no sense given the situation the offense is in (throwing a screen pass when
we need 10 plus yards) and the officials showed they were lost throughout
most of the game.
||Cross cheered so much for the Raiders I expected to see him on the
sidelines in a Raiderette costume.
||We had to many dropped balls on Sunday so the Wrs are getting horns,
along with Carmen just because and who ever decided to have our corners play
8 yards off there guys on that last drive... I HATE PREVENT D
||Because. Carmen.... it's still not all about you and Al Davis... time to
get out of the spotlight buddy.
||First Home Win of the Season! Who needs the negativity? ALL DAWGS GET
||Two penalties for the very raw Thompson, Bentley continues to be
inconsistent, and Policy gets one for neglecting to find a spot in this
organization for Bernie.
||"Just Sue Baby"
||Robert Griffith is rather useless
||A HUGE GOAT TO WHOEVER LET ALL THE RAIDER FANS INTO THE GAME....WELL
MAYBE NOT, THEY ARE FUN TO PICK ON..... BUT DAMN ARE THEY UGLY!
|section 527 dawg
||The Butchie Davis cheerleading TV show SUCKS!!
||Lehan: lets not let an aging superstar get a step on us EVER again
||Heiden - terrible drop of a pretty, pretty pass.
||Arians is still too vanilla for my liking.
||Heiden and Morgan - Huge drops. We can add poor receiver to compliment
poor blocker. Something was either wrong with the play calling or the
pass-blocking yesterday, there was no time or no effort to throw downfield
... and the defense was able to drop back lineman/backers and have more in
coverage than in the routes.
||Morgan needs to step it up. He cannot keep dropping passes on 3rd down
if he wants to be considered as a #1 WR in this league.
||A goat to all the Raider fans who thought they would turn CBS into the
Black Hole. It's funny that you all ran your mouths before the game but were
nowhere to be found when the game was over.
||Am I the only one that thinks Q bobbles every ball thrown his way....if
he wants the ball, he better hang on to it.
||We have to have more production from our TE. Tough drop on a great throw
by Couch. Thompson showed some rookie jitters with two flags. Halloween came
early in Cleveland with terrible outfits worn by Raider fans. they look
ridiculous and hid in shame while BC willie ran the ball down there throat.
||When you've run the ball successfully 5 or 6 six times in a row don't you
think a play action pass might be appropriate? Worst end of first half play
calling/clock management in the league. When do we get to see C. Jones
||hmm Steve, paging Steve Heiden's hands.....
||Heiden needs to learn how to catch the easy ones. Arians still needs to
use the spread offense more.
||I'm still seeing yellow from all the flags thrown.
||A win doesn't have to be pretty to be pretty......
||Morgan Please catch the dang Ball. The ball that he lost on the hit at
the 3 yd line was due to the ball cradled in his arms and not tucked away.
Man you know your going top get hit over the middle. Hang onto the BALL.
Crocker get away from a live ball and stop dancing around the dang thing.
Think! Heiden if you want to be around next year you better start making
some plays and not dropping balls right in your arms. Man he had his man
beat and could have gone all the way. Couch could not have thrown it any
||1 Chaun Thompson: He's special : faster than Rudd; stronger than Rudd;
dumber than Rudd
2. Heiden: couch gets out of sack; out of a 2nd sack; runs
right to left and looking like Bernie drops it into Heiden's arms, bread
basket, knees, oooppps
3.TE's for letting Heiden be our best TE.
