The Week's Results: Interesting results in Gameballs and
Goats this week. Josh Cribbs is once again the game's hero, but Browns fans
couldn't reach a consensus on who gets the goathorns. Most of them were handed
out on defense again. The write-ins were numerous this week, with Brian Billick
rightfully tying an inanimate object for the most write-in votes thanks to his
should-be career-ending decision to kick to Josh Cribbs in overtime.
NOTE: There's a lot of adult language in the comments this
week, I think I "asterisked" most of it, but use caution when reading.

||well ugly but awin
||Refs helped out as well with the non call on Jones's slap in
Boller's head on his first blitz (Pool INT return)
||DA, Cribbs, and the safeties (including Adams and Sorenson) came up
with the big plays when they really needed them
||"The Bounce" ,one finally goes our way!!!!
||Jamal gave his all to win, Orpheus made many tackles and Joshua
Cribbs is truly an amazing talent.
||Joshua Cribbs continues to amaze. The guy has got guts,
determination, and a selfless attitude. I REALLY hope he makes it to the
Pro Bowl. It's good to see Lewis running with some attitude. I don't
think I've seen a Browns running back lower their shoulders and run over
people instead of around them since Mr. Mack was doing the honors.
Anderson deserves plenty of credit for staying cool in the clutch and
being able to find his key weapons when it really counts (and the
offensive line for giving him time to do it).
||It's about time the Browns got the breaks from the refs, especially
on the road. Anderson, Cribbs & Co did a fine job. Chudz should allow
the team to play more aggressively in the 2nd half. How great would the
Browns be if they had a defense, just a half-assed defense would be
better than what we now have.
||Josh Cribbs just continues to amaze.
||Cribbs. That's all I'm sayin'. Pool. 100 yard INT return. Phil. Game
tying FG. Game winning FG. Thank God someone told the ref to make the
||with out the returns by Cribbs and the Team record Int return of
Pool we loose this game.
||cribbs baby cribbs
||Simply put, Josh Cribbs is a freak. At this point, he's every bit as
dangerous as the much more hyped Devin Hester. If he wasn't playing for
the Browns, they'd probably have 2 or 3 more losses this year than they
do now, which is a pretty insane impact for a kick returner. He's
clearly having the best season of any Brown since the glory days of the
Great to see Jamal light up his old team again (especially since he
helped my fantasy team win). Too bad he didn't get 8 more yards and
break the Rats consecutive streak of not giving up 100 yards at home.
And Phil Dawson redeemed himself from that early miss (which was looming
large there at the end) with those two huge clutch field goals at the
end. After all the times Matt Stover's stuck a knife in the Brown's
heart on last-second kicks, it was great to see Phil do it to the Rats
twice in the same game.
||Josh Cribbs - what can you say other than that. K2 - for some big
catches again. O-line for once again making everything happen on O.
||Gameball easily goes to Josh Cribbs. The guy is amazing. Period.
||If Josh Cribbs in not in Hawaii this year, charges should be filed.
Joe J and the rest of the receivers did it when it needed to be done.
The entire O line, especially the left side. Steinbach should be
escorting Mr. Cribbs to Hawaii, and possibly Mr. Thomas. JT should be up
for ROY. And a big thanks to the JETS!
||I still can't believe we won this game. If this defense could even
||The refs get a write-in for taking the time to get the call right
(even though from the stands it looked like they missed a couple of
pretty blatant face masks)
||Cribbs obviously, he is what kept them in the game. K2 for the
clutch catches when we need them. Big Ted for being on IR so Kelly can
play... and of course the write in, the sooper genius himself for
continuing to kick to Cribbs the whole game! dumba$$
||For the first time this year, 2 D guys get GBs. Sean Jones and
Brodney Pool. I'll also give Dawson a GB for the game tying and game
winning FGs, but he has got to stop missing easy FGs.
||If it wasn't for Cribbs, for the second week in a row, the Browns
would not of been in this game.
||Joe Thomas is the man. I wanted Adrian Peterson. Thomas was the best
pick. When you get punched like he did by Nagata on the ground like
that, It's hard to keep you head in the game. He still played like the
Pro Bowler he is (or at least should be). Nagata should be fined or
||Josh for team MVP. Jamal brought everything he had to this game.
Robaire was the leader in a revitalized D-Line bringing pressure. DA had
an uneven game, but came up with the big throws when it counted.
||This is a rarity, but I've gotta give props to the officiating crew,
they did what it took to get the call right. At long last, the ball
literally bounced our way.
||have fun in hawaii, josh! phil, great kick!
||We kept fighting and won and the crowd at O' Boys in Orlando went
nuts... Great to beat the RatBirds
||Josh Cribbs once again carried the team on his back and kept them in
the game. His punt return to the fifteen and two kick returns were key
in the Browns' win. The offense struggled throughout the first three and
a half quarters, but Jamal Lewis ran with authority (one week after I
trashed him). On several 2nd and longs, he brushed through the Ravens D
for 8-12 yds. Both Winslow and Edwards made key catches down the
stretch. The offense looked like the early season offense on the final
drive and in OT.
||"We've got the worst defense in all of football...we should sit on
the lead!" RAC
||F***in' A. No wait, F*** a B, it's got two holes. Seriously, winning
Browns football gives me a boner.
||Cribbs - WOW. Phil Dawson - I have never seen anything like that in
my life. Jamal - for productivity
||Maybe after all these years the curse has been transfered to the
Ravens.for they now have the "bounce"..forget the drive, the fumble, Art
||Great win Brownies...even though you are trying to give me a friggin
heart attack! The Cardiac Kids ain't got nothin on this team (except a
playoff birth). Way to come together. Criibbs, Winslow, our O-Line, DA,
Braylon, Heiden...studs, nothing else to say. Now if we could get this
Defense to grow some balls and stop a team when they have to, we might
get somewhere. Props to Poole though yesterday. Sweet pick, it's about
time you made a play. How does it feel Ratbirds to have the call go the
other way for a change? Not very good huh? Welcome to our world. Choke
on it, you deserve it. Say it with me Browns fans: J-E-T-S...Jets, Jets,
||For the first time I'm giving a game ball and goat to the same
player...Phil Dawson...missed field goals and short kick offs....but
then 2 of your biggest F/G of your career...and to the scout that got us
||Aloha Josh Cribbs. If he doesn't make the Pro Bowl,the fix is in.
Derek Anderson just never gives in. Not his best day, but he made throws
when we needed them. Finally, our talented safeties showed up. Both
played very well. Lewis is tough as nails, Winslow and Edwards too.
||Cribbs is good.
||He deserves a gameball for continuing to kick the ball to josh
cribbs..What a bonehead...thank you brian!
||Cribbs, how great is he? Phil Dawson: Mr. Clutch... KWII: How tough
||Refs made the right call Go Bucks!! 6-4 and in the
playoffs!!!!!!! I am amazed!!!
||Robaire Smith played with some serious desire yesterday.
||Cribbs, as usual, was poetry in motion. Lewis had a solid game and
showed Ray "The Knife" Lewis that he still has something left in the
tank as he ran over Ray-Ray for his TD. Pool for once played up to his
ability. How about some more games like that Brodney?
||Give a gameball to "blitzing." too. Pressuring the QB by blitzing?
What a concept! Cribbs is amazin. Easily Browns MVP!
||Cribbs was the MVP of this win, with Dawson a close second. Phil
overcame two bad kicks (one his fault, one not) to make two very clutch
FGs. What more can be said about Cribbs? The guy is all pro. I know he
just got a new contract at the beginning of the year, but they should
tear it up after this season and redo it again.
||Finally - we get a CORRECT call.
||You could give Winslow a game ball every week.
||Didn't hear Sugg's name very much again!!!
||For getting the field goal call right.
||Cribbs = No Fear!
||The Derek Anderson to Kellen Winslow completion on 3rd and 10 in OT
was huge! I believe the Browns are growing and are a good team for the
first time in a very long time. The Browns are fun to watch. Go Browns!
||Cribbs, Winslow and Lewis for sure.. Oh hell everyone should get a
Gameball for this win!! I don't care how well different players played
or contributed or didn't contribute.. We SWEPT those friggin' POS and
I'm one HAPPY Cleveland Browns fan.. Now if Art Modell and that son of
his David both die BROKE and in the gutter.. Then I'll die happy someday
too.. I have a VERY strong dislike for the Steelers, but I hate the
RAVENS!! The Steelers can got 2-14 every year if both wins are against
the Ravens where as the Ravens I want to go 0-16 for ever..
||Refs for FINALLY getting it right with a Browns game....they have
helped us lose more games than any other X factor, even though
apologists will state otherwise. DA looked tenuous at times, but I guess
I would too after 2 weeks in a row of crazed criminals chasing me.
||Grantham gets a gameball for figuring out how to get pressure on the
QB. Pool's int return for a TD--enough said. Cribbs needs more touches
||Josh Cribbs - for the 2nd straight week, he had more yards that our
QB. Sean Jones - not just the INT, but the sack and then smack down of
Boller. That was a legal hit he was called for, his hands were back and
Boller ducked into the hit with his head. Robaire Smith - 2 Sacks for a
Browns DE! WHAT!!!!
||We can thank Phil for hitting a tough 51 yard kick. Also, hats off
to Derek Anderson for telling Stover that "we're going to overtime" on
national TV. Stover looked like he was going to cry, which is hilarious.
||Nice to see a more aggressive defensive approach. The blitzes by the
d-backs were especially effective in disrupting Boller. Way to go Todd,
||Wow...We actually had somewhat of a pass rush!!!!
||Cribbs was amazing - has to be a Pro Bowler this year. Dawson hit
the 2 clutch FGs. Referee who overturned the missed FG gets the nod over
Billick, whose ignorant play calling on 3rd and 1 gave us a chance to
get the ball back to tie the game.
||Josh Cribbs - How can one team owe so much to one player. Derek
Anderson doesn't carry this team - Cribbs does.
||Cribbs is god, Lewis for his "hard-running", Officiating Crew for
getting the right call at the end, and a special mention for Anderson
for the last two drives.
||Josh Cribbs - of which all good things come. Great kick by Dawson.
Lewis ran with conviction and purpose. His running kept Ravens defense
honest. Derek Anderson was clutch in the last drive and in OT.
||Lewis set the tone early, giving the offense the needed boost of
confidence. Dawson was nails...And Cribbs,...well,...is just Cribbs.
Which is one helluva compliment
||There were others who deserve recognition, but without Cribbs'
outstanding speacial teams play, we lose, plain and simple. So he gets
all three of my votes.
||Joshua Cribbs was a MAJOR factor in the win. Sean Jones'
interception, hustle, and blitzing was also major. 6 sacks by D-Line!Major
||Wow, a repeat of last week -- a big lead at halftime only to be
given away and a miracle needed at the end to tie. Last week against PIT
we don't get the miracle, this week we do. Either way, we should NOT be
having to fight our way back after being up 2 TDs. Enough of that.
Contributing to the win, DAWSON gets a gameball for coming thru in the
clutch. Of course CRIBBS does to for another week of lights-out play.
And DA for generally playing a solid game -- 274 yds and a 63%
||Cribbs is the best player on the team.
||For continuing to kickoff to Josh Cribbs. I think his ego got in the
||Josh Cribbs is our MVP period...just to think where this team would
be without him!! Jamal Lewis was a a beast against his former mates and
that's the Jamal I want to see the rest of the season. No one has
mention Ethan Kelley play since taking over for #92 Blob, but he's done
a heck of a job since being named the starter. Robaire Smith had one
helluva game and I like what I see from the big fella. We have 2 Rookies
who are playing there butt's off Joe Thomas is a given, but Brandon McDonald has been the surprise of our rookie class!!
||Cribbs continues to shine on special teams. Dawson continues to
respond after an early missed field goal. Jamal clearly played hard
against his old team.
||Josh: I love you in a way that's not really legal in this state.
Phil: I was *this* close to picking you for a goathorn, even after you
won us the game. Then I saw your postgame interview. You really are a
Cleveland Brown. You're the only one who's been here since day 1 of the
rebirth. You deserved to have a call finally go your way. Brodney:
Helluva play... 'nuff said. (Sorry Robaire Smith, your exceptional play
goes unrewarded and you just miss the cut)
||Robaire's contribution has been overlooked by how bad the rest of
the D has been. Very solid season, and our most consistent performer on
||J. Cribbs is playing at a Pro Bowl level! Please find more ways to
get him involved!
P. Dawson stepped up big-time at the end, having a pretty good season
also(even though we have lost 2 games at the end because of a FG!). RAC
- Thank you for getting more involved with the Defense. We are now
starting to see somes schemes that can work to apply pressure on the QB!
Winslow, Edwards were their usual big-time players & Jamal was a
||Phil, Joshua and whole special teams get it for obvious reasons.
Josh IS superman! And I know Sorensen is on special teams, but a special
shout out to him. I was scratching my head when we used a roster spot to
bring him in, but obviously, Phil knows a lot more than me.
||Jamal Lewis, I thought had his best game as a brown. He was clearly
out to prove to the ravens he still can get it done. And He ran hard,
fought for extra yardage and punished the raven defenders, Great job by
Lewis. Sean Jones seemed to be all over the field on sunday, when
he wasnt in coverage making a play, he was in the face of boller
creating problems in the ravens backfield. I love it when we blitz him,
he is very effective in this area. Brodney Pool, talk about a huge
momentium swing when pool took that Int 100 yards for the score. Pool
has really come along and improved his play since the start of the
season. He still gets beat from time to time, but he is around the
football more and making alot of plays. Phil Dawson come through in the
clutch not once but twice nailing the game tying and game winning fgs.
Major props to him for coming through when we really needed him too.
||Robaire Smith knocked a guy into the Atlantic Ocean on Pool's INT
return, I think I saw Robaire giggle afterwards.
||If I had more balls to give I'd add Sean Jones, Winslow, Edwards and
Anderson for clutch plays and I'd actually add Brandon McDonald because
he played well in Holly's role when Holly subbed for Wright.
||THEY ARE ALL GOATS
||no one, sometimes a road win is a road win...
we aren't the PATS yet,hell it took them years
||Poor job towards the end of the first half for
the O Line. Once again, terrible offensive play calling in the second
||Nice PC after the game. Next time watch the
entire game refs, at least you saw the bounce. Stop believing how great
ray thinks he still is and call face masks and horse collars.
||The Offensive Line committed so many penalites,
they looked like a bad High School Team. Derek and the whole team can't
put two halves together of sound football. With a little more effort,
they should have beaten Pittsburgh and Oakland.
||I love Joe Thomas to death and it's difficult
to get mad at him given all the good things he is doing but those back
to back offside penalties? Ouch....!!
||Ro-ro and Todd-eo! In spite of these two
defensive charlatans, the Browns are winning because of a strong
offense. Ro-ro and Todd-eo must go!
||The coaches have to realize that our offense
has to keep attacking the entire game. We can't stop and let the air out
because our defense can't stop anyone. But you can just see Romeo
saying, "Let's run the ball and take time off the clock," which ends up
meaning punt and get scored on.
As for the officials, if one of our linebackers grabbed the facemask
like stabbin' killerman did at the end of the game, the field will be
littered with yellow flags. The roughing the passer penalty was
completely bogus as well.
||DA. Grow a pair buddy. Let 'em drop already.
Don't be so scared in the pocket. BE. Catch the ball before running.
Todd. What can I say? Why not keep the pressure turned up? Andra. Tackle
||for having Ray Lewis' ugly face on the front
page (Edit: LOL... sorry... thought it might be dartboard material)
||This defense is beyond pathetic--it's far and
away the worst in the NFL. To give up 30 points to Baltimore's stone-age
offense is inexcusable. That's more than the Rats scored in their last 3
games COMBINED. If Grantham doesn't straighten this out, he needs to be
gone at the end of the season.
Leigh Bodden continues to be nothing but burnt toast this year. I've
been a fan of his for the last few seasons, but he can't cover anybody
and is always two or three yards behind his man. Devard Darling had 2
catches for 26 yards coming into this game, and Bodden made him look
like Randy Moss to the tune of 107 yards and a TD. I'm afraid Phil
Savage is going to have to look for a new corner this off-season to play
opposite Eric Wright.
And the officials were absolutely disgraceful today, not that I'm
surprised since the Browns always get screwed when they go up against
one of the NFL's anointed "glamour teams." Ngata, by rule, should have
been ejected for punching Thomas, but wasn't, and there were a boatload
of other penalties that weren't called--holding, face masks, horse
collars, pass interference, you name it. In fact, the only penalties the
Rats were flagged for all game were 2 dead-ball personal fouls, so in
other words, according to these refs no Baltimore player committed a
penalty DURING play today, which has got to be a first in the history of
organized football. If the NFL wants to maintain its integrity, it
should start suspending crews that do as awful as a job as these morons
||THERE IS MORE TALENT ON THIS DEFENSE WHY
AREN'T THEY PLAYING BETTER
||The entire defense for making the Baltimore
offense look like the Colts in the second half.
||DA - bad game again. The Secondary for giving
up just way to many big plays.
||While the defense actually looked pretty good
at times, they let the Ravens back into the game. They still don't know
how to play 4 quarters.
||The Special Teams gets goathorns as well for
not executing an easy FG and flat out missing another. The offense had
WAAAAAY too many penalties. Jamal had a nice day but that taunting
penalty was idiotic.
||I voted the entire Offense as you cannot have
over 100 yards in penalties and expect to be praised...
||Grantham.. what can you say, no lead is safe.
The announcers for hanging on stabbin killerman's jock all afternoon.
The officiating crew for all the blown, missed calls, and of course the
city of crackmore and it's purple team of thugs, felons, and cheap shot
||grantham please, please, "never" stop being
aggressive .. whats up with bodden???? He is getting his ass handed to
him lately!!! Anderson needs to settle down... he's starting to look
like he has happy feet... a little shaky.. with the protection his line
is giving him..he should not look like a cat in a roomful of rocking
chairs!!! Andra davis looks like a stiff board.. or should i just say a
stiff!!! and the stupid a** penalties!@#$%
||Andra Davis played the whole game and the only
time I hear his name is for missed tackles. This is one of our MLBs?
Leon gets a horn because he played in the middle too and did nothing.
Bodden needs to pick it up with Wright out, he didn't.
||Anderson's putrid play almost cost the Browns
this game just like against the Steelers.
||I am sick of them playing not to loose. We
almost lost again. They go into a conservative shell as if the defense
can hold anybody. The defense was starting rattle the QB so the smart
thing to do is stop being agressive (I'm being sarcastic). The defense
gave up one long play so they stop being aggressive. Whats the
difference between giving up a bunch of 10 yard plays every down? What
is up with the Refs allowing such dirty play. Nagata should have been
out the game. You see other players with late hits and starting fights.
The do the same for Pittsburg and the Patriots.
||No goathorns to award after such an emotional
win - total team effort!
||The defense looked fantastic in the first
half, and completely fell apart in the second despite watching most of
the first half from the bench. It looks like the D is getting better,
but needs to keep going for 60 minutes.
||Andre...Andra...hey Number 54! Get the hell
off my team! Grantham....Michigan State just called. That's Michigan
State Technical Institute (approved for veterans) where you can study
||BE, you CANNOT be dropping those balls! it's
the second game in a row you have had some costly drops.
||Brian Billick gets a goathorn for, well, for
being Brian Billick. He also gets one because he was stupid enough to
kick to Cribbs consistently through the game. He never got the hint. And
despite his claim that the NFL will likely be sending him a memo for
screwing up the game--one thing is clear--the ball went through the
uprights. Go Browns!
||"We've got the worst defense in all of
football...we should sit on the lead!" RAC
||Seriously, f*** Ngata. His cheapshot on Joe-T
was a disgrace to football. It happened less than 5 feet from an
official. Just goes to show you how many of these players don't resepct
the game, or the players. F*** cheapshots.
||Entire D for sleeping to start the second
half. Willie McGinnest for being so slow. Ted Washington - Thanks for
||No Goats...It was a team victory!
||Andre look pathetic...and the ref's for not
calling the person foul calls against B-more
||I just don't understand why receivers run wide
open in our secondary. Our defense was very good one half, and terrible
in the second. Baltimore's inept offense looked unstoppable against us.
Very Scary for us in a playoff run.
||Grantham is not good.
||Only goat goes to the OLine for having so many
||Edwards had 8 catches but should have had
more. Anderson threw several balls low. Edwards needs to get down make a
better attempt. Take what's there.
||Derek: Gotta make better throws across the
middle, my man
Defense: Balt halftime adjustment almost cost the game. Cover someone,
F*** Lloyd Carr!!!
F*** Chad Henne, Jake Long, Shawn Crable and king of all douches--Mike
GO BROWNS!! No need to be negative...We won the Game!!!!!!!
||DC Gratham needs to go after the season is
over. He has gotten worse as a DC each ensuing season even though the
talent has gotten better. A 3-4 base D is all about pressuring the QB
and playing mon-on tight coverage to force mistakes. Instead Grantham
wants to put little to no pressure on the QB and play a soft zone flex
D, which can make any QB in the NFL look like the 2nd coming of Otto
Graham. He is in over his head. Crennel needs to promote Mel Tucker to
Chudzinski needs to stick with the 1st half game plan instead of going
into a shell and playing not to lose in the 2nd half. When you play not
to lose you run the risk of losing. If he doesn't change his 2nd half
play calling philosophy the Browns will lose several winnable games down
Andra Davis is absolutely horrible. He needs to go after the season as
well. The Browns need to draft a solid ILB or two in the next draft
along with a DE who can pressure the QB and play the run. Phil needs to
draft Goff (VAND)2nd rd. and Leman (ILL) 3rd rd. to fill their ILB
needs. DE Dre Moore (MD) might fall through the the 4th rd. and would be
an improvement at DE for the team.
||The refs sucked butt most of the day. I can
not believe they allowed the pure rape of Wright by the stabber man. The
punch by fatgansta should have had him tossed also
||I've run out of ways to describe how putrid
this defense can be -- or how gutless the coaches seem to become at
times by sitting back in that soft zone. Yes, we won. But the first half
showed how to play against Boller. Why we stopped doing it requires the
services of Jessica Fletcher to solve.
||HA. Bruce Arians and his ilk in Pittspuke get
one handed to him. Good. I hope it ruins his holiday.
||I was going to give the whole FG unit a goat,
the final 3 seconds and OT made that impossible.
||Apparently once you get away with murder you
are allowed to horsecollar tackle and facemask on the same play without
consequence. Also, why wasn't Ngata ejected? Is this football or
||It was the worst game I've seen Leigh Bodden
play. -Line; enough with the penalties! We have greater opportunity for
improvement at linebacker than we do at D-Line.
||Only one person gets a goathorn and that the
ref on the left side under the goal post facing it.. The SOB never even
raised his head to look up and see where the damn ball hit.. Come to
think of it most of the refs in this game just plain SUCKED!!!!! The
whole damn crew get goathorns
||To Art Modell, just for still being alive;
refs tried to help us lose by not throwing the latest Ratbird thug out
of the game, "Hallowed be Thy de Nada"; refs for calling a well-deserved
spike OUT OF BOUNDS as unsportsmanlike conduct after JT gets suck
punched; D has to find a way to NOT let punks like Boller look like Tom Brady for almost 2 quarters, the soft prevent defense showed as Ratbirds
scored a couple easy TDs on us in 2nd half.
||Grantham gets goathorns for whatever type of
defensive adjustments he didnt make to slow the Ravens offense down in
the 4th quarter. Travis Wilson for being a third round bust who cant
beat out Tim Carter.
||Can I give all 3 of my Goat votes (and my
write in vote) to Todd Grantham? His play calling, or lack thereof, has
cost us big leads in the second half for the last two games. He calls
off the dogs and goes soft, thinking he just has to protect a lead. We
had 4 sacks last week and 6 this week, so the ability is there, just not
when he backs off.
||Can someone please end the Todd Grantham
experiment? The only time our defense is effective is when we put
pressure on the passer. This three man rush garbage is for the birds.
Get Marty in here to run this defense.
||How can Romeo keep Harrison on the bench (or
inactive) when he is such a change of pace back? Sorry Romeo, but as
much progress as you've made this year you still need to be more open
minded about some of the personnel.
||I thought you were supposed to get thrown out
of a game if you throw a punch?
||Defense fell apart...and Anderson cant throw
to an outside shoulder...Edwards now has rocks for hands...
||Chud, too conservative again in the 4th,
blowing the 13-point lead. Grantham for giving up the 13-point lead.
Pontbriand - bad snap cost us a FG attempt.
||How in the hell does the ref miss a horse
collar AND facemask on the Ray Lewis assault of Wright?!
||Overheard from RAC during the last drive in
regulation "I knew there was a reason I was supposed to keep those
||Anderson for "short-arming" several throws and
the INT, OL for all those stupid penalties, Bodden for changing his name
to "Toast", and a special mention for Dawson. Come on! It's a 35 yard
||Way too many penalties by the O Line. The
whole team has to play better in the 2nd half.
||Shame on Todd Grantham and defensive "GURU"
Romeo Crennel for getting torched by one of the worst offenses of all
time. What is going on? When you give up nearly 400 yards of offense to
that team, its time to scrap whatever your trying to do. The "vaunted"
3-4 defense shows me absolutely NOTHING. And let's not forget Romeo
Crennel. Yes, the team is winning. GOD only knows how.
||Good night, Art, whereever you are.
||Andra Davis did more dancing with blockers
than Fred Astaire. Bad decision by DA on the Ray Lewis pick. Does Daven Holly want to play or not? Looked like a rookie. THAT many false starts
by O-Line is unacceptable.
||Lack of ability to make second half
adjustments means that both CHUD and GRANTHAM deserve some horns this
week. It has been a consistent problem adapting to the changes the other
team throws at us. I hope they figure it out quick while we still have a
chance to make the playoffs. Another week or two of this and we are
sunk. And horns to the pathetic duo of WILCOTTS/EAGLE -- I thought we
were done with pair of losers.
||Brian Billick is a c***!
||I suppose i could put the O line for all of
those penalties, but we won.
||Andra Davis can't tackle worth a dime and
can't cover worth a damn, so please tell me why is he our starting
Middle Linebacker. Leigh Bodden seems to be going through the motions
last several games and I don't know if it's an injury or what, but he
needs to step up his game for this playoff push. PLAYOFFS!!!!
PLAYOFFS!!! LOL!! Phil Dawson for always missing a field goal and always
putting us in the predicament that we have been the last weeks. Grantham
has the defense playing well in the first half, but GOD the second half
sucks!!! Tim Carter for just taking up space!!
||To many penalties! Very inconsistent play from
both sides of the ball.
||DA - can we get the "Good Derek" back? Or is
he slowly showing us his real skill levels! TG - after getting such a
superb effort in the 1st half, he went back to his cautious safe zones
which allowed them to get some rhythm!
||The OL...dont get me wrong they did a nice job
in pass protection and held up well overall. But how many false start
penalties did they have? I counted at least 6. Talk about shooting
ourselves in the foot and killing drives. Those penalties really cost us
in the first half especially, we could of possibly put this game away in
the first half without the stupid penalties and turnovers. Bodden and
Holley were just terrible in coverage. Time and time again they were
beaten and allowed their receiver too much cushion and position to make
plays. It really hurt us not having E. Wright in the game I really
believe he has become our best corner.
||Braylon quit fumbling, Quinn quit stealing all
the chicks and Pete Gilbert Channel 11 Sports Baltimore for an interview
at midfield before the game was over ha! ha!
