The Week's Results:
The Gameball winner would have been a 100-1 shot prior to the game, but
Frisman Jackson would not be denied. Reuben Droughns gets gameballs amidst the
loss as well. And the offensive line getting a gameball??!? We must be in
a new era.
One cannot help but approve of write-in votes for Brian "I (heart) Kyle Boller" Billick and "The Man". The Man, as we know, is responsible for
everything, including putting an official's dome in between our quarterback and
wide receiver. I'm guessing Jessica Simpson didn't get a gameball write-in for
her singing, but, you know I'm just guessing.... also, props to Section 527 Dawg
for avoiding this game in his ticket lottery. I'm hoping you get the Bears or

YEAR TO DATE STANDINGS
(Starts up next week)
||No sacks? Time for the QB to throw? A couple of holes for the
running game? I haven't seen that in years. Nice job O-line.
||Tuff game. Its hard to find positives but the offense showed some
signs. Great game by Frisman of course.
||THOMPSON: What a stud today. BODDEN: Also some great plays.
DROUGHNS: Nice runs, stepped in on KR and did a nice job.
||Superb effort for Heiden, Droughns and Dawson. If I could pick 4,
Carthon would be in there. He was a question mark in my mind going into
this game and showed nice, imaginative playcalling. The OL looked great
as compared to past years. This offense will produce as they gel.
||Uh, did anyone call the Frisman sighting?
||Reuben Droughns: Solid day considering we had to pass all day to try
and keep up. He'll take the majority of our carries this year, and
frankly, I am happy with that. Frisman Jackson: Gotta give it up for
the Fris today. He had the fourth best receiving stats in the entire
NFL this weekend! Yikes! Chaun Thompson: He stepped it up today, and
seemed to be one of the few front 7 guys making any sort of tackles.
||Droughns doesn't LOOK like just a product of the Denver O-line.
Frisman outplayed Johnson, and the O-line kept Trent clean.
||Frisman Jackson - okay, I've not been a Frisman fan at all, but that
was a hell of a play he made today. Dennis Northcutt - for that great
return w/the B.S. call that brought it back. Reuben Droughns - looked
awesome when they were able to give him the ball.
||Wasn't it nice to not be able to call the play before the snap. Nice
job Mr. Carthon. Friz had a great game, and Droughns was solid as well.
||Droughns need to get the ball consistently - he makes things happen.
OL didn't allow a sack. Frisman had a huge game
||At least the O'line looked good.
||Droughns was a workhorse and was all over the place, Frisman had a
breakout game, and Heiden made some unbelievable catches while taking
some brutal shots!
||Frisman Jackson was the man. Bodden also had a nice game with 2
picks (I know, 1 was called back) and a very nice play getting past one
of the OL on a screen on 3rd and 4 to make the stop.
||For the first time ever, I gave a game ball to the entire O Line.
||The people from the Gulf Coast could use a smile, the Saints gave
||Not too many earned on this day. Jackson gets one for making the
only exciting play of the game. Reuben ran well (when they called his
number). And another to Heiden for making some tough catches.
||No sacks, and 5.6yds/ru att...Run the Rock...Stupid!
||Frisman Jackson - Terrific game, and first NFL touchdown, nice job.
Dennis Northcutt - Solid game, and nice run back on the punt that
resulted in a taken-back-by-penalty TD. Reuben Droughns - Solid running,
too bad he couldn't get more touches. Tailgating - my first experiance
tailgating, and it was fantastic!!!!!
||Nice job by the OLine. No sacks. No penalties. 5.3 yards per rush.
|section 527 dawg
||I get a gameball because I didn't draw this week's horrible game in
our ticket pool! But they have to keep Reuben in there!!
||The offensive line gave Trent time. Great to see.
||Fris and Bodden really stepped up and surprised with their solid
play. Droughns silenced any leftover critics and looked like he was
going 100 percent all the time.
||Fris - Great game, nice long TD. You got yourself some ESPN
highlights. O-Line: That is what we like to see after the last few
years, thanks! Faine: Keep it up. Dominating play at the center
||OL - No sacks, few pressures, and big holes. I thought I was
dreaming. Was I really watching the Browns? Frisman, welcome to the
||no sacks and a real pocket. GO BROWNS
||Frisman really wanted to win, and it showed...Droughns should be the
every down back, what a smooth runner...Everyone needs to put away the
thoughts that Phil is slipping...
||Dilfer is throwing too high just like in preseason. The officiating
crew sucked. Carthon fell in love with the pass early on and didn't mix
in the run.
||Two BS calls would have went our way and we would be in
overtime right now
||Trent Dilfer was the sole reason for 3 TO's. Enough said. Char-lie
||Simply disgusting performance by the front seven. Gross. Lets hope
it gets better.
||Our defense really laid an egg. We need to generate some pass
pressure and shore up our interior run D or we are in for a very very
long year. Oh and those refs really suck.
||Thanks to Butch Davis for years of terrible draft picks. Savage has
much work to do to get us a pass rush. Gonna be a long year.
||DILFER: Floating passes all over the place. ENTIRE D: Like a sieve,
the Bengals just flowed right through. OFFICIATING: Some really awful
||Yes we lost. But we showed promise. We are rebuilding (or just plain
building). It was the first game. We moved the ball. We played not bad
D, room for improvement, but not bad considering the changes. We are
going in the right direction for the long haul.
||2 cheesy, ticky-tack penalties that didn't affect the play called
back the 14 point difference.
||I'm disappointed in the fans that had unrealistic expectations for
this team and are ready to bench players and fire coaches. We're on the
rebuild. Again. Have patience, young Jedis. The refs were absolutely
horrible - though our front 7 were even worse. I hold out hope though
because as they adjust to the scheme, I see improvement throughout the
||Maybe it's just me but I can't stand Ian and Solomon. They
continually identify the wrong people.
||Entire Defense: We couldn't stop anything they did. Just awful. No
one group did anything good, save for Thompson. Officiating Crew: They
robbed us of two TD's - on the Northcutt punt return and the Bodden
interception. Both were BS calls. What else is new? The Browns got
screwed by the refs once again. Dilfer: Solid in the first half but
tried to do too much and force throws in the second half. He, like the
rest of the team, should be able to settle down a bit as the season goes
||It took all of TWO MINUTES for some of the whiny fans where I was to
give up on the entire season, and about 35 minutes before people in the
chat room were calling for coaches to be fired. The Refs get goat horns
for making nonexistent calls (there were no hands to the face) that took
points off the board. And it seemed like the only part of the defense
that showed up were the linebackers and Leigh Bodden.
||Officials - get out of the way, you bastards! And don't make crappy
calls! Ugh! TV Announcers - hate hate hate hate them... could you call
one thing right just once? The Man - I blame the man for our injuries
in the secondary. Damn the man!
||2 weak penalties on would-be-TDs for the Browns really hurt. Baxter
would have been nice to have had back there as well.
||mickens - 2 costly penalties. D-line - needs to do a better job
stopping the run. Dilfer missed some open guys.
||Yuck! That D looks badddddd.
||Penalties and turnovers! Two TD's called back. This team isn't good
enough to overcome those types of mistakes.
||Penalties, they'll kill you everytime. I didn't a hand anywhere near
Chad Johnson's Face!
||Defense was painful to watch. No rush and a big cushion in the
||Needed...linebackers that can fill the gap. Also, a pass rush would
||Not surprised with the lack of pressure on the opposing QB but still
was the main reason why the Browns lost. Dilfers 3 turnovers didn't help
either. Also the call on Bodden's INT return was the worst call i have
ever seen in a NFL game. Some "hands to the face" call. But i guess
that's what happens in today's NFL.
||The adjustments made by the bungels were better than our
||Entire D - I know this is a patch-work D w/ a lot of youth, and
switching to a 3-4 and all, but that is not an excuse for the stupid
plays. -TV Announcers - I was at the game, so they didn't bother me
live, but I TIVO'd and watched some last night, and they kept saying
Cosey Coleman caught that pass that bounced off the ref's noggin...it
was Faine...not a big deal, but these guys have cheat sheets in front of
them, look down and get the names right!!!! Officiating Crew -
Nitpicky/Bad calls all around, and took at least a TD from us. William Green - had a brief appearance, but sure didn't make much of it.
||Cut down on the turnovers, Trent.
|section 527 dawg
||Romeo, Droughns had 40 yards in the 1st quarter and you pulled him!!
Hello?? If there something wrong with a 6.5 average?? Especially when
"blunt" Willie has 3.0/carry?? Oh yeah, and mix in a defense this week
vs GB! Thanks.
||Could they find 2 bigger morons to do the TV broadcast? I watched
the game on Tivo that night and they had 10 wrong calls in the first
||You expect at least solid NFL caliber play out of your veterans.
Lang, McKinley, Fisk, and Roye did not provide that for our front seven.
Lang is in a new position, but where was the rush?
||Russ - Wrap when you hit buddy! D-Line - Stay in your lanes and get
lower! LBs - Time to step it up, and you all need to go to wrapping up
school with Russell!
||no pass rush what so ever.
||Worst. officiated. game. ever. Eagle and Crapcotts - 8th string
announcers. How long till Mickey Mouse Mickens gets replaced. He
couldn't cover my grandmother, and she's dead.
||wow...nice hands to the face call a**h@@es...
||NONE...........Two dozen new guys on a team destined to be a top 5
draft pick with the least amount of sound players in a defined scheme.
||don't pass on 3rd and 1 or 3rd and 2.RUN the damn ball
||You just can't commit stupid penalties McIntyre...Romeo, passing on
third and short losses its shock value after the fifth time doing it!!!
I understand we were behind and we lost Heiden, but 43 pass attempts!!!
