Looks like a made a wise decision in not watching this game. The stats look like your typical 2008-2012 Browns game.

The D does look good but if the O doesn't step up there game the D will tire and there will be a lot of second half disasters. By the way did I mention that Weeden is awful.

Annnnnnnndd . . . . Thank you, Buster Skrine. Thanks to you, our WRs inability to catch balls and the QBs tendency to not be good, our streak of not winning the first game of the year will continue.

If you can't score on a prevent defense with 4:00 to go, you need to totally revamp your offense.

Cousins was so bad Swartz and Mack had to cheat to protect him and then the whole damn line collapsed. It doesn't help that Weeds takes 30 minutes to release the ball to the guy he's directly staring at.

Cousins had the worst football game I've ever seen from an Offensive lineman. He should be cut immediately.

It's like Groundhg day every opening Sunday the last hal dozen or so years since I very wisely gave up my season tickets.

Get down in front of the big screen to watch the pregame show - which refreshes my memory and makes me realize why it's the only week I watch them. This is the first instant I get a hint of myself being stupid. Then, perhaps two series in, after the current Browns QB makes a high school play, they run the footage of the 9,000 opening day QB's the Browns have had the last 15 years. I stare at Chuck Fry and Jake Delhomme and I really start to feel dumb.

By half time I'm an idiot, By games end I'm an asshole.

Only sving grace was this game and the Jets/Bucs were as big of lock unders as I'ver ever seen opening week.

Campbell in before week 6.

And Campbell stinks too but they'll only be able to take so much.

- J. Kipnis grounded out to shortstop
- A. Cabrera doubled to deep left
- N. Swisher doubled to center, A. Cabrera scored
- J. Giambi doubled to deep right center, N. Swisher to third, N. Swisher out at home
- J. Giambi caught stealing, catcher to third

So Chudzinski gets to coach this year with his horrible inherited qb....they will stink, draft another horrible qb, play with him his 2nd year and stink again, then he gets fired.

At some point just stop the cycle. Give Chudzinski a MINIMUM of 6 years as head coach simply to stop the cycle. It's just pathetic what they have done for 15 straight years. 2 years simply will not be enough to judge Chudzinski as head coach. It was not enough for Shurmur or Mangini or anyone....I don't care how much everyone hated them. Just end the loop for once.
