Perspective.

I'm bummed that the Browns didn't win, or force the tie.

Bottom line is that this is an amazing team for doing so much with so little when it comes to playmakers; as FMB points out so well.

After watching five straight games against Super Bowl contenders, I have to say that the Jets are the best team right now.

And the Browns punched them in the mouth.

Fujita: Out

Sheldon Brown: Out

Josh Cribbs: Out

Two drives taking 18 total minutes out of the second half yields all of three points.

And Colt Freaking McCoy leads the Browns for their first final 2:00 minute touchdown in about the last five years.

Wish we would have done better, but I'm still stoked about this team and the direction they are now going.

Now Heckgrem needs to go out and find a legitimate WR.

+1.

We are close. Overall you can se the players Mangini wants to coach. Tough, smart, good character.

Well, we need some speed.

We need a homerun hitter WR
We need another CB & S. We need a pass rushing LB. Another tough DE.

We need Hardesty to get healthy or another good option to give Peyton a breather. His playing style would be enhanced if he played every other series.

We get most of those things in the off season. Watch out! We wont just kick the playoff door down, but will be serious comp for a SB Berth.

Still, I'd like to see Mangini and his staff coach these guys up on knowing when to get out of bounds and knowing when to fight for the extra few yards.

Everyone on this team wants to run like Peyton Hillis. I appreciate the aggressive style, but Stuckey could have been spared the goat horns by not fighting for the extra few yards that could have been picked up on the next play. They were already well on their way to Dawson's FG range.

He had more reason to step OB than to pick a fight with 3 defensive players...and speaking of fumbles, Hillis should start sleeping/driving with a ball in his hands

Thats two weeks in a row he's fumbled in the 1st qtr

Wrong. Based on the fact Danny Mendola has more receptions and touchdowns than the Browns entire corps.

They better make a loud announcement when they release Robiskie, otherwise, who the hell would notice?

Sam Bradford throws the ball 37 times a game. He should have a ton more receptions.

But that group still seems slightly less talented. But it's pretty darn close.

Why would Bradford throw so much when they have a top RB in Steven Jackson? Maybe because he has people to throw to? Or at least people to throw to better than the Browns?

How about the 1992 Seattle Seahawks? Leading receiver was FB John L. Williams with 74 catches. Next best -- WR Tommy Kane with 27. That was one less than his age. 28-year-old WR Louis Clark caught 20 passes. 27-year-old Brian Blades caught 19. Apparently he got hurt that year because he only played six games. Some WR named Doug Thomas caught 8.
