A Win this Week Should Change All Expectations

Unread postby smalls1129 » Sun Nov 07, 2010 11:21 am

First just let me say that I have been of the opinion that overall wins do not really matter this year. With that being said, a win this week potentially changes the entire complexity of this season. It would make back to back wins over Super Bowl contenders and it would set up a signature game for Eric Mangini. A chance to reach .500 against his former team, in his house, with his young QB (presumably).

When does flex scheduling start?

It becomes even more intriguing because a Browns win against the JETS would mean a legit shot at the playoffs. Yes the playoffs. That would mean THREE straight wins against legit Super Bowl contenders, all with a rookie QB. Couple this with a much softer non-division schedule to finish out the year and I do not think the possibility could be denied. Of course I am way ahead of myself here and this could all become moot as a 4:00 toady. But if you are of the believe that the Browns can win today, and I am, then it is not that hard to think maybe we are closer than we think.

The math the math allways the numbers.

Dude i like your spirit and agree with sentiments , but sheesh a win today leaves us a 3-5 and a win over the Jets next week still leaves us short of the 500 magic bullet mark you alluded too.

GD,I am an idiot. I wrote that out last night at like 2 in the morning and waited to post it as to not make a stupid drunken mistake like that. I still think it would make somewhat a statement game for Mangini and I still think if the flex scheduling starts next week the JETS game could get moved to 4.
