The Week's Results:
While watching the Lions falter against the Colts on Turkey Day football
today, one of the announcers said that he would be worried if a special teams
player got the loudest ovation during player introductions. Well, TV guy, get a
load of what's happening in here in Cleveland: Richard Alston snags the most
gameballs again this week after a lackluster offensive display and the defense
faltering in the homestretch left Browns fans sick and disgusted. Fans divided
into two camps: those who want Butch Davis' head on a platter, and those who
didn't vote. The winner: apathy, as voting was rare as a fan sitting in a CBS
seat as the clock expired.

YEAR TO DATE STANDINGS
||Hard to come up with gameballs this week, but I'll
try: Suggs had some nice runs, Crocker made some nice defensive plays and
the defense did everything they could to help us win the game. Too bad our
offense it the worst of all time.
||Alston looks like the real deal as a KR. The
defense came up huge in this one!
||A Great Defensive Effort wasted by Offensive
Ineptitude. Loved the Blitzing and all the sacks that came from it.(See what
happens if you blitz enough times!) The Buckeyes get Gameballs for beating
scUM (a.k.a. Michigan.) Remember, you can't spell scum without the UM.
||Alston continues to make a huge difference in the
return game. Garcia, while not great, did a good job under pressure. The defense
really stepped up in this game until they just tired out late in the game.
||The defence and special teams did every thing they
could to get the offence into scoring range.
||All I know is that Ohio State kicked the crap out
of Michigan, and that's always more than enough for a great weekend.
||Campo gets a gameball for his first half D. More
blitzing than we've seen all year and how spectacularly successful. But gets
the horns for the second half collapse.
||i have nothing to say
||Everyone on the defense stand up and take a bow,
then flip off the O and special teams.
||great to finally be able to put some pressure on
the qb. good job defense and dc campo.
|section 527 dawg
||Props to David for bringing out the whoopin' stick
on the Pacers and Pistons! If only Bud Selig were 1,000th as smart and
effective as Stern.....
||Richard Alston - Doing a great job running back
kick offs....but why wasn't he there to start the season. Entire D - very
nice game, but they just ran out of gas at the end...thanks to our woeful
offense. Dave Campo - Finally brought out the blitz, hopefully that will
stay in the defensive package the rest of the season.
||Chaun Thompson for his 2 sacks. Keep it up.
Antonio Bryant sure looks to be a keeper. The 1 bright spot of this season
seems to be the trade with Dallas. Earl Little had a nice pick. The guy
shouldn't start but he could be part of my dime package anytime! He has a
nose for the ball.
||They only guys worth considering are Special
Teamers: Richard Alston, Dennis Northcutt, and Mason Unck, who gave the
Browns terrific field position all day!
||A great Defensive game- a dominant first half. No
one else gets one, though
||Alston gets a game ball for his good returns. Why
wasn't he up on the active roster. Everyone on the defense gets a ball for
their six sacks and overall tough performance. Even Gerard Warren who I have
ripped on before (especially last week) because he chipped in with two
sacks. It was tough coming up with a third guy on the roster but Bryant made
some good catches and ran good routes. Couch gets a game ball because he
still has the highest winning percentage of any Browns QB since the return
of the team. If anything this season should vindicate him. Imagine if he
turned out the same results as Garcia has this season the Couch-Bashers
would be all over him. You all are getting what you deserve.
||Hooray that the fans are becoming smart enough to
stay home...what a shame to see empty orange seats at a Browns game...what a
||Alston - Another good return, he has to be among
the tops in the league in return avg. Thompson - Good pass rush vs. the Jets
- hopefully the coaches have him doing it more often. Campo - About time you
blitz. Good defensive game for 54.5 minutes. Ferentz - Looks like your stock
is getting bigger and bigger to relieve BD, at least that's what I'm seeing
from the big sports websites.
||the defense never seemed to have the same spark in
the second half that it had in first half. maybe it was because of the
offense.. i don't know but someone needs to have an answer as to why it
||I have to vote for the fans. The pride we have
carries us through. Geez!
||Young defensive guys really stepped it up.
||Alston for bringing life to the kick return game,
defense for an outstanding effort and Thompson for finally making his impact
||Nothing else to say other than the defense is
absolutely pathetic in crunch time. LAMONT JORDAN??????? You can't (@#%in
stop LAMONT JORDAN???? Kill yourselves, all of you, you are PATHETIC and a
DISGRACE TO GOOD FANS!!! MAN I HATE THIS
||Butch Butch Butch Butch!!! GO AWAY!!! Worst
offense ever. Dawson must have gotten dumped by his girlfriend last night.
Adds insult to injury. Don't need to repeat the obvious.
||If Davis is gone after the season, this game will
be the catalyst. BD should apologize to every member on the D. He is way too
conservative to coach in the NFL - another case of a good D-coordinator not
having what it takes to take the next step. GOODBYE ROBISKIE!!!
||Phil Dawson - NOW you miss FGs when the Browns
needed the points. The Offense - That was dreadful. Butch Davis - I lost
patience with him last week. Time for a change. Hey Michigan Fans, where are
you! After All the crap coming out your pieholes, you're nowhere to be
found. I'll bet you really miss John Cooper.
||Fire Butch NOW!!!!
||Lee, you ran hard and they didn't call a fumble,
but dammit hold on to the ball! Phil's done great all year, but if he makes
the two fg's we win. Butch, the clock is ticking. Anyone know Kirk Ferentz's
||The offence has been a huge disappointment this
year. You can't blame injuries for stupid penalties.
||Randy gets the goat for not firing Butch yet....
Runaway Train never comin' back, wrong way on a one-way track...
||It is time, Butch.
||Just when you think it can't get any worse or more
embarrassing, Butch calls a timeout just so we can give the Jets one more
shot at scoring.
||Butch, this is the worst coached team I've seen in
pro ball. I have often told friends to watch the last 5 minutes of the first
half of any Browns game to see what an awful game day coach our Butch is.
Today's farce was the worst yet! Campo, what happened to your D? The O gives
them a 7 minute 47 second rest and they come out with their worst effort of
the day. Then they can only stop the Jets on 1 out 5 runs to end the game.
||can we please get a game plan
||I'll trade 27 in a row for the kicker not being
the reason we lose a game any day.
||butch davis is a joke for a coach. butch don't go
away mad just go. he is an anchor to any success this team might otherwise
achieve. browns fans should demand more and not SETTLE for our current
situation. note to butch: insanity is defined as doing the same thing and
expecting different results.
||Stupid media blacks out this game in Columbus to
show the Squeelers and the Bungles! Ughhhhh!
|section 527 dawg
||I know, off topic, but what Happened Friday night
is disgusting and inexcusable! I hope Artest goes to Jail for this!! Oh
Yeah, and please never, ever being back the Orange Jerseys!!
||Entire Offense - one word: sucks! Phil Dawson -
Okay, who was that guy posing as Phil Dawson, and what happened to Phil?
Butch Davis - FIRE BUTCH NOW!!!!!
||Well, let me get Dawson's horns out of the way.
That 2nd miss was a crusher. Butch has earned the horns yet again for
sitting on a 7 point lead in the 2nd quarter. Is this really the offense
that Robiskie wants?
||Sorry Phil Dawson...just hope that's the last of
that! Butch, it is getting harder to defend you every week. And Gerard
Warren, who came to camp in such great shape, still plays awful football.
||Philly- gotta make at least one Butcher- I don't
wanna hear about guts, I don't wanna hear about injuries. "The world doesn't
want to hear about the labor pains, they want to see the baby" Frisman-
Still wearing 19
||Garcia is another in the line of doomed QBs.
However he, like Kelly last year, is pointing the fingers at others. Its
becoming more obvious that his 3 pro-bowls were due more to the players he
had around him than his own skills. Phil Dawson is normally steady and
reliable, while we probably would have still lost had he made the two FGs
(the Jets would have pushed the ball instead of kneeling at the end) he has
to get a goat for missing two make-able kicks. What can you say about Butch
other than the fact that he is overmatched, outsmarted, and outclassed at
the NFL level. Butch, have some dignity and just quit now. The scene at the
stadium was ugly on Sunday and it was all your fault. Quit now and let us at
least get some value out of our tickets for the last two games. Which brings
me to Barry, Swerb, and Owl. Last week I gave them goats for trying to
defend the undefendable Butch. While in their writings this week they
appeared to soften their stance none of them have had the courage to say
they were wrong and that Butch does in fact need to be fired. Until they
recognize the flaw in their original thinking they will keep getting goat
horns. Remember guys its not flip-flopping to admit that you were wrong, and
the way you are refusing to come out and say that Butch needs to be fired
you are turning being wrong into a cottage industry. (Editor's
note: Pffffffft! Neener-neener-neener!)
||- The orange uniforms!!! Have we not learned that
they're cursed yet!?!?!?
||Butch - You stink. Sometimes I think you are like
Florida weathermen, you just say the same thing after each loss. Robiskie -
The pile of dog dung in my backyard has called better offense than you this
year. 5 games with 1 TD, out of those 2 were defensive or special teams. Jim
Nantz - The super jinxer. Thanks buddy. You and Phil can pick a cheek and
kiss. WKBN - Did the NFL TELL you to show the Sqeelers game, or are you on
||something has to change, this cannot continue, the
team is losing heart you can see it..
||There is so many I couldn't know where to begin.
||Ron Artest for not sucker punching Butch Davis!
||O-line because they can't block. Robiskie cause his
game plans suck, his offense sucks, and he sucks.. just like his offense
sucked in Washington.. Davis for having 4 years to improve this offense. for
4 years this offense has been in the bottom of the league.. 4 years is too
much butch Davis..
||Butch, the end of the first half was the worst
game management ever! Even Dawson complained that being late out of huddle
caused the FG team to be rushed and contributed to the miss. What? YOU CAN'T
EVEN GET A FIELD GOAL ATTEMPT CALLED IN TIME!!!
||Butch has got to go. This has got to be obvious to
everyone by now. He friggin' called a timeout to force HIS OWN TEAM to punt
before half! The team's talent level is low because of his run as GM as
well. Lerner has to step up and give the Browns' fans someone they can
respect as coach.
