With the NFL cracking down on overly-physical play, I thought there were going to be a couple calls today.

I was looking for a couple of helmet-to-helmet calls that were delivered to Colt McCoy today. But then I realized those were head-butts being delivered by his own teammates after he scored on his diving touchdown run. 'Hey guys, don't hurt him!!'

And then I thought we were going to get an unnecessary roughness call, but then I realized it was Thomas chest bumping Daball.

its not at all crazy to see them going 4-4 to close out at 7-9.



CP - I;'m gonna kick myself and punt on the heart of a piece with a spoiler post, but look at the schedule and ask yourself the following questions:

- Do you automatically cross off a W every Sunday anymore?

- Can we run the ball?

- can Clt manage games well now, and make a play here and there to get over?

- Can Colt get better?

- Has the D come together in a manner befitting of witchcraft?

OK, let's go to the film for the previews:

Jets, Jags, Panthers, Dolphins, Bills over the next 5 games.

Given that playing in FLA in Dec freaks me out a little bit ( scarred by 85?) from a conditioning stand point, the game vs the Jets is now the biggest in club memory since the epic DA failure vs Cincy in 07. We win this game, and I see 4 wins in the next 5 games.

That's 7 - 6 heading into Cincy, B-more, and Pittsburgh. Crack/STD more is at home as is Pittsburgh.

I don't know that 9 - 7 gets it done this year, but maybe the AFC West can cannibalize itself and either the Colts or Bullheads can hit the skids.

Give me 7 - 6 in mid December at home with the physiclity of this bunch and I'll take my chances.

Thing is; it all strats Sunday.

Browns would have to find a way to either win out or not lose a game in order to make the playoffs. Also, they'd need the Inbred and/or Rats to make some slip ups and I don't see that happening.

I know you're probably gonna spasm in reply JB but hear me out.

I know it sounds weird/wrong but I am not so sure I want to see us win that many more games (this season). Yeah it feels good, real good when they do in the likes of the teams we've recently beat, and yeah I know the philosophy of you take success whenever you can get it. Despite all that I feel we are better served with one of the higher picks in this draft to try to obtain a real special player for the long run. This isn't 2002 to me, where it felt like I was so thirsty I had to drink the first drop of water I saw. I've learned to ration now. Nobody here is saying we'd be tough out in the post season but for me I'd rather have the pick than a Rd 1 exit that would be most likely. I think Mangini has created an atmosphere strong enough to handle a disappointing season in terms of W-L that would not be ruined if we only won 2-3 more games.

IMO this team knows they can play, they believe in themselves and each other and it was all evident yesterday when they busted out the hugging and chest bumping.

6-10, good draft, make a historic double up in the win column next year, and be waiting a week to find out who your first playoff opponent will be.

The only problem is at 6-10 Mangini gets whacked, Ryan bolts, and Walrus waddles the sidelines. Giant step backwards IMO. This isn't the NBA where you must be in the Top 3 or 4. Just win baby.

Teams don't want top picks in the NFL because of the Cap hit. Especially in the last year without the projected rookie wage scale. Their is talent in all levels of the draft and I WANT WINS.

I don't see the enomoration with getting a high draft pick at the expense of a bad season. This regime is already light years ahead of Savage, Kokinas, etc, etc in terms of drafting talent so, IMO, they will do more with less than the hacks that have been running the show the past 12 years. Given the parity in this league, simply getting a #1 pick doesn't vault you to another level. Maybe a top flight QB does, but if Colt is our man (and I wholeheartedly think he is), then all of a sudden this team is NOT that bad.

QBs win/put teams in position to win, and if we've got one in Colt, then the gaps we need to fill get exponentially smaller. Having a top 10 pick to get a S/CB/DL simply does not have as much value intrinsically vs a team winning and finding itself. Don't forget, if Mangini continues to get these guys to play and they win, Cleveland becomes a culture where winning is first and players want to play. Ergo, we can get talent here through the FA pool more successfully than any time since the return.

When's the last time a white running back led each team in rushing? Belichick and Mangini are tapping into the unused market just like Billy Beane did in Moneyball.

Its time to give Daboll some love.

Mangini, Hillis, Ryan, and McCoy are, deservedly so, getting all the pub this am, but our OC put a hell of a gameplan together IMO. He's been getting killed with Browns fans the past two years, but take a look at what he's dealt with this season:

- 3 new QBs into the system
- 2 injured QBs
- starting a rookie QB against PIT, NO, and NE
- the worst receiving corps in the NFL
- being publically dissed by the Walrus this week

Credit where credit is due.

Without doing any research, my guess would have been John Riggins, a guy who has been for me the best past-NFL comparison for Hillis that I can think of....though he never had the speed Hillis has, he was pretty decent as a receiver out of the backfield, IIRC.

Edit: I guess I was thinking of a guy who may have led his team in rushing...not led the league in rushing. That might generate a few names more recent than the 60's....Riggins...Rob Carpenter?...Alstott?...Craig James?...there must be some obvious ones I'm missing...help me out.

Winning needs to be the only priority week to week. They're changing a culture of losing, and the only way to do that is to win. The only player in this draft that might be worth throwing the season for is Luck, and the Browns don't have a shot (or a need hopefully) at him anyway. And I don't think 6-10 costs Mangini his job. If they play well, and lose some close ones, he should stay. If they lay down and take it and end up 6-10, maybe. And would Holmgren be any better anyway? Six wins looks reasonable, of course it's different in practice than on paper.

Which do you think would be more likely?

Do you think the Browns have a better chance to win out? Or do they have a better chance to not lose a game?

Personally, I think either one would do it.

Last white 1,000 yard rusher was Craig James in 1985. 25 years ago. That is crazy.

Hillis could be doing for white RB's the reverse of what Jason Sehorn did for the white cornerback (now extinct) in the 2001 Super Bowl.

Not to piss on the fire, but the browns desperately need a back that can effectively give Hillis a breather. White or Black, any good feature back needs someone to keep his legs fresh, especially as the weather gets colder and the body gets brittle.(r)

Damn shame they never figured out Josh is a RB and not a WR tho.

SD:

Bell went out never came back , looked like a hip pointer although you can't find a report, looks like its gonna be the next guy up, the one we swiped off the pats practice squad this week , unless Bell has a miracle recovery .

maybe we find that shake and bake by accident reminiscent to last year when that other kid who is now selling pencils gave Jerome a breather.

That catch Josh layed out for and netted the first down at the ten was nails ,
can't agree he's a running back , butt he does need more touches.

Bell really ain't bad in that role. Not great, but not bad.

Damn shame they never figured out Josh is a RB and not a WR tho.


SD:

Bell went out never came back , looked like a hip pointer although you can't find a report, looks like its gonna be the next guy up, the one we swiped off the pats practice squad this week , unless Bell has a miracle recovery .

maybe we find that shake and bake by accident reminiscent to last year when that other kid who is now selling pencils gave Jerome a breather.

That catch Josh layed out for and netted the first down at the ten was nails ,
can't agree he's a running back , butt he does need more touches.

So is Bell gone, becasue 'd have expected another RB pick up then. Injury reports come out Wednesday or Thursday? Bears wathcing. Hillis can't take that pounding vs the Jets run D .

Ah well, he caught bottled lightening in Hillis. maybe this kid from kansas state comes out and pulls a Ben gay with his back up role.

Cribbs in no RB but we DO need another back, regardless of style and HR hitting ability. Just need somebody to allow us to keep Hillis up right for the rest of the season.
