Re: Cleveland Browns 2008 AFC North Champs Thread

And if they had finished one game behind it becomes a massive stretch?

10-6 = 10-6. That's a tie. A tiebreaker was used, which gave the edge to the Steelers.

Not to make excuses, but the first week was with Charlie Frye. The second game was a nailbiter, which took a last second drive to win. Although the Steelers had a slight edge, it wasn't much.

It was 5, midway in the 2nd he got yanked.

In any case, I have no doubt the Steelers were the better team last year, but it was fairly close. One team got worse as the season progressed, losing 3 of their last 4, and one team got better. I think it will definitely be close this season, with the most likely case being the teams splitting games this season, although I could see either team sweeping the series in some close games.

Thomas is most likely to still be good and on the team in 3 years.

Just rip off the C on the Couch Jersey. That's what I did, save it for seasons when they suck.

Re: Cleveland Browns 2008 AFC North Champs Thread

Living in Dayton but my folks are still in Cleveland and got season tickets.

I'm going to thoroughly enjoy being present for multiple games on the Browns' march to winning the division.

I'm going to thoroughly enjoy tailgating (duh).

I'm not going to thoroughly enjoy buying beers for $57 inside the stadium.

The Browns didn't finally figure it out, they just finally had a year when the guys they brought in didn't get hurt and panned out like they had hoped. It does seem like they are going to try to win this year without a competent secondary. I think it is likely to get ugly for them if they play the Steelers or Bengals in good weather.
Browns secondary problems last year had a lot to do with their pass rush being ineffective, and struggling against the run. The did try to address this area and we should see some improvement in coverage if they can get some pressure on the QB.

White jerseys generally make you look weird, IMO. Now, back when the Browns wore white at home regularly it was different, but stick with the brown.

Re: Cleveland Browns 2008 AFC North Champs Thread

The Brownies beat one team with a winning record last year, the Seahawks at home. They had a cupcake schedule because they sucked the year before. This year they actually have to play some good teams. They'll be lucky to win 7 games. And LOL to whoever said the Browns played well down the strectch. THEY LOST TO CINCY WITH THE PLAYOFFS ON THE LINE.

Browns fans will be crying for Brady Quinn after they lose their 1st 2 home games to Dallas and Pittsburgh.
