Here's one of the tangential values of TRich and his TD: He not only got the team back in the game (psychologically as well as score-wise), but he got the fans in the stands back in the game.

Only for the Browns D and the refs throwing laundry every play to take them out of it
Galley Boys are slop on top of a so-so burger and a bun you coulde get from a Covneninet food mart generic pack. They the Antoine Joubert of burgers; soft, sloppy, oozing grease and cheap sauce and extremely overrated by a biased fan base. Proof that if you throw enough cheap sauce shit on a burger you still can't overcome the lame burger. -JB

Having watched the Browns this season, I do feel the team has made progress over last year, but sh*t they still have a hell of a long way to go towards being anything.

Here's hoping Haslem isn't Randy Lerner Part Deux.

There were a helluva lot of good games on. 3 went to OT, 2 others came down to Hail Mary's.

I watched a few brief moments of the game, but it kept giving me fits of irrational...

I don't need to waste emotion on this team, it's beyond not worth it. I'll maybe watch the game before I write the article. Or just glean what happened from the play-by-play on NFL.com. That's probably good enough.

Saints, Raiders, Browns, only Defeated teams left. We can do this!

I laughed the whole game. Between the coaching ineptness and the complete failure of certain non-talents, I thought the game was high comedy. My wife was staring at me like I was crazy when I fell over laughing on one of the Bill's big scoring plays.

Dumb Scenario

Say Weeden has games like he's been having the past 2 weeks for the remainder of the season, but is unable to net us more than 3 more wins. But he makes the team look competitive every outting. Only really against the Steelers and Ravens he looks bad, and lets say both of those teams are on their way to the playoffs.

Now, you can attribute that to whatever. Shurmer going conservative, dropped passes that would have gone for TD's, but Weeden hasn't looked terrible outside of the aforementioned Steeler and Ravens games, and that diaster in week 1.

Shurmer's gone, you have a new coach.

The Browns have the first overall pick in the draft, or one in the top 3. What do you do?

I don't think he is.

How many of those pases were right in the recievers hands? He had a 99 rating prior to throwing that INT in the end.

Say Weeden has games like he's been having the past 2 weeks for the remainder of the season, but is unable to net us more than 3 more wins. But he makes the team look competitive every outting. Only really against the Steelers and Ravens he looks bad, and lets say both of those teams are on their way to the playoffs.

Now, you can attribute that to whatever. Shurmer going conservative, dropped passes that would have gone for TD's, but Weeden hasn't looked terrible outside of the aforementioned Steeler and Ravens games, and that diaster in week 1.

Shurmer's gone, you have a new coach.

The Browns have the first overall pick in the draft, or one in the top 3. What do you do?


If there's a QB that's a fantastic talent, that will be a clear upgrade over Weeden, then you do that. Right now, I don't know who that guy is, but he might emerge. Sure as hell ain't Barkley.

Otherwise you take the best pass rusher/corner/defensive playmaker.
It's only progress if you eventually get somewhere.

Matt Barkley
Geno Smith
Logan Thomas

That's pretty much it for guys with 1st round grades. To me it'd take WVU winning the Big XII in dramatic fashion or Logan Thomas looking like Cam Newton part 2 to really bump their names up.

As it stands are any of those guys any better than Weeden?

I'm not rushing to judgment on Weeden. He's still learning what it takes to play QB in the NFL. The West Coast offense is predicated on the QB making the right reads at the line of scrimmage, and his grade so far is barely passing. It also didn't help today that he was playing from behind the whole game and was trying to force the ball into places it didn't fit. Let's grade him at the end of the season.

I'm not rushing to judgment on Shurmur, either. The hope was that he would learn from his 2011 miscalculations and become a better head coach this season. Hasn't happened. With all the experience his assistant coaches have, you'd think that the results would be better. Hasn't happened--the team's performance out of the chute today was pitiful and inexcusable. By the time Haslem is officially the new owner, we're going to know for certain whether Paddy O is staying or going. And it'll probably be the latter, based on what almost surely will be 11 straight losses by that time.
