Can't be argued.

But how do you like his chances on one leg and with all 11 Steelers in the box?

Christ. Who was the last Browns running back to go for "five yards a pop" against Pittsburgh's defense? Leroy Kelly?

They have Polamalu and Aaron Smith in the lineup, which they didn't last December. We're not running the ball against that team Sunday.

Carl Wollarski: Against Da Giants?

Bill Swerski: Yes, give 'em a handicap.

Carl Wollarski: Bears 18, Giants 10. And that would finally be a good game.

Pat Arnold: Yeah, it would be a good game. Mini Bears 24, Giants 14.

Todd O'Conner: What about Ditka? Would he be mini, too?

Bill Swerski: No, he would be full-grown.

Todd O'Conner: Oh, then, uh.. Mini Bears 31, Giants 7.

Carl Wollarski: Oh, hold on. Then I change mine, too. I thought it was Mini Ditka.

Bill Swerski: Okay, gentlemen, another scenario: Da Bears, they don't make it, the plane is delayed.. and the only one who shows up is Ditka. Ditka vs. Da Giants. Okay, score, gentlemen.

Pat Arnold: Alright, after da heart attack, I gotta say Ditka 17, Giants 14. He just barely gets by.

Bill Swerski: Alright, that sounds exciting. Perhaps, you know, a late Ditka field goal.


Bravo, bravo.

Steelers 27 Browns 7

We all get that odd things can happen with an untested QB in the NFL. McCoy on the road against Pittsburgh's defense? Not gonna be pretty.
mmm, this is, a tasty burger!

Colt can't fail Sunday because the Cleveland sports script says that this game must lead to a QB controversy. See, we need the Ray of Hope -- the guy who plays just well enough to get fans thinking that maybe the Browns have finally struck gold. Think back to where we were after Charlie Frye's first game ... or that preseason game where Eric Zeier looked like the greatest QB ever ... that's exactly where we'll be Sunday night. We'll see threads with titles like "Mangini HAS to start Colt now" and "Finally the Browns strike gold in the third round".

If Colt gets destroyed Sunday, that would be too easy. It's not the crushing defeats that make following Cleveland sports as sucky as it is -- it is the raising of hopes which is then followed by the crushing defeats. And for at least the first half on Sunday, those hopes will be raised.

At the same time, I can't pick a rookie QB making his first start to beat the Inbred in the ketchup bottle. So I'll say that Colt plays well enough for the Browns to win, but that a couple of other mistakes (maybe a crucial fumble or two, and I will call an INT off a perfectly thrown ball bouncing off a receiver's hands) lead to the Steelers winning 24 - 20.



No win, but I hate you Johnnny.

Hate you.

Reminds me of the quote from "Dead Again": This is fate we're talking about, and if fate works at all, it works because people think that THIS TIME, it isn't going to happen!

I don't want to judge Colt McCoy based on prior Browns QBs. What Brady Quinn or Tim Couch or Charlie Frye or Eric Zeier did or didn't do has nothing to do with Colt. And I should say here that I did not watch a single down of Sunday's game (sitting in front of a TV versus being outside on a perfect fall afternoon?). I'm certainly happier to hear that Colt did well against one of the game's toughest defenses than if he had gone 6-19 for 75 yards and three picks. But I'm not about to go all Laurence Fishburne and declare Colt the Chosen One. Maybe Colt is; I certainly hope he is; we just don't know enough yet.

I do know that however Colt turns out, SoulDawg will be there to tell us that he knew it all along. ;)
