The Cleveland Browns are a factory of sadness, indeed...
Just when you think it can’t possibly get any worse. Just when you think the Browns have hit the lowest of the low. Just when you think they’ve finally hit rock bottom… They go and take my already low expectations and still manage to fall well below the bar. Is this finally rock bottom? Is this finally the point where as Browns fans we look at one another with confidence and say, “It can’t possibly get any worse” and be right?
God, do I ever hope so because if not… I don’t see any way any of us survive the next 7 weeks of what is turning into a complete joke of a season for the 2011 Cleveland Browns. Continue reading
And here we go again. Another week, another chance to waste three hours of my life watching the Browns. Luckily for me I have absolutely nothing better to do so how much can I really complain? Well, I won’t complain, but the Yankee Loving Fiancee can… and she does… and then she makes fun of me.

Of course as luck would have it, the Browns don’t get to take on a 1-5 49er’s team. No, they get a 49ers team that is 5-1 and looks like it might be the best team in the NFC not named the Green Bay Packers. Continue reading
I’m pretty sure that’s not the first time I’ve used that headline. If that’s the case, I guess the news really isn’t all that breaking. Oh well, coming off of a bye week in which we were promised so much and delivered so little, this headline almost seems to sum up the situation perfectly. It’s almost as if we were expecting something different for reason not known to anyone.
In my preview of the game on Thursday, I predicted that this would be a close blowout. One of those games where it feels like a complete mismatch and blowout about 95% of the game and somehow the score won’t adequately reflect that. Did I ever hit that one on the head or what? I predicted a final score of 24-14. It ended up 24-17. Did I cover the spread on that one? Continue reading
