I'm not gonna cut tail and run, but I had a bad feeling about this game after they beat Denver.
You just KNEW it was going to happen.
I saw the very first play of the game, then left. (15 yard pass to left flat wiped out by penalty). And I knew it was a Ratty SB.
Got work done and got to the Shrine! :)
The feeling I got from this is this, regardless of who won tonight:
The Browns are miles away from contending, regardless of who won the game tonight. It feels like January 1991--after we went 3-13 in the 1990 season under Bud Carson, we got to see the Giants and Bills play at such a ferocious level in the Gulf War Super Bowl. Luckily, under Head Coach Bill Belichick, he improved the team to a 11-5 record by 1994; and, if not for the move, could have had a Browns-49ers Super Bowl in the '95 season.
We have a long ways to go. The only redeeming fact about a Rats SB win is that we know know what we have to do to beat the best. We are due to beat them...it has been 6 seasons. Even with Pitt we were able to beat them in 6 seasons. These Browns have been so horrible for so long we don't even know what a 6-10 to 9-7 team feels like.
At least '90 was sandwiched between two fair to good years.
