    Wow after last week Burfict is having a HORRIBLE day today. One tackle all day. Dunlap has only one tackle too.

      Well, looks like they pulled this one off. Good thing the D finally starting playing at the end. They should have crushed these Chumps!

        Yep, should have won by at least 30.

          As usual...even a win--and one which was never in doubt from the beginning--is met with more wailing and gnashing of teeth than if it had gone the other way.

          Sorry that they won, and disappointed some people.

          No I'm not.

            Disappointed... yes I'm disappointed that they took their foot of the pedal. I'm lost as to why Nugent still has a job. You aren't? I'm lost as to why Burfict and Dunlap were non-existent today.

              He hates when you point out FACTS and then gibberish about you are a Realist and what is that. My eyes and brain cells say Peko, Johnson, Nugent and Kirkpatrick are trash and are a hinderance to this team. Dalton is playing better without his crutch in AJ. When he comes back, get ready for forced passes going his way. The OL is mediocre. We were passing all over them and the Marv goes back to conservative. Even Tasker said he talked to Marv at the half and said they need to establish the run, well, what happens, he runs the ball instead of throwing. All he cares about is the clock running with a lead.

                I enjoyed today's game.

                Worried coming in, as Hue is desperate and had two weeks to prepare.

                Dalton and skill players looked good.

                Dre is now my least favorite Bengal. Hot dogs it when he doesn't do anything to affect the play.

                Got to be hundreds of guys available that can make a 30 yard FG for league minimum. Mike doesn't think we are going to playoffs...so finish with Nugent.

                Browns have three players - Thomas, Crowell and Haden.

                  It was really nice to see Boyd making plays. Throughout the year many people said he wasn't being effective because he was too slow to get separation, yet he looked good today, and had quite a bit of speed on his run. Dansby looked extra inspired today. I think he led the team in tackles.

                    It gives us hope for next year, he teaming with AJ, plus Eifert. Got to get the O-line straightened out.

                      Most players on this team are very inconsistent. Flashes of great plays and times when they look useless or not interested. ML cannot keep this team engaged for 60 minutes let alone 16 games.

                        Low numbers by Dunlap and Burfict? Game planning by Hue. Ray Lewis is an all-time great, but Marvin knew how to game plan him out of the stat book. Look up Ray Lewis' tackle numbers against the Bengals when Marvin took over. Way below his average. He knew how to disrupt his game and did. Too bad that's all he could do as a head coach. If Marvin could be that effective against Ray Lewis, then certainly Hue can do the same to Burfict and Dunlap.

                          My frozen take on the game: (yes, I have finally thawed out)

                          1. With his injury history, Tyler Eifert has NO business hitting anyone hard enough to draw a personal foul. I'm surprised he didn't break his arm on that play.
                          2. I've said it before and I'll say it again, if your running game has issues, playing the Bengals' defense will cure it. I can't believe the Browns ran for so much.
                          3. RG III's receivers did him NO favors whatsoever. I don't know how many passes they flat out dropped. RG III looked like he hadn't played since the 1st game of the season.
                          4. Agreed on Kirkpatrick. He is the worst tackler in the league and celebrates too much when he has even a semblance of a good play.
                          5. Why is Nugent still here? In all fairness, the play during the botched extra point was entertaining but got me thinking: What if, in the process of lateraling the ball one of our players got it and ran it back to the end zone. Is that a score? What kind of score would it be?
                          6. Marvin wanted to establish the run. Well, he did. I'm not going to fault him for not having Dalton throw more because he didn't need to and with our OL issues, do you want to put him into that kind of danger if you don't need to? He fumbled the ball once on a sack.
                          7. Our run defense issues better get fixed and fast, otherwise Leve'on Bell is going to run all over us.
                          8. Finally, I thought the Browns might win one game this year. After yesterday, I'm convinced, they are going 0-16.
                          "She's a Browns fan. She doesn't know anything about the playoffs." Chuck Todd referring to Kelly O'Donnell on "Meet the Press"

                          "The Browns are so low in national esteem that they troll the football equivalent of the thermal vents at the bottom of the Marianas Trench in the Pacific. This is the deepest point on the surface of the earth. Strange creatures live there and also in Berea." Bill Livingston-The Plain Dealer

                            Glad you got to drive home happy. After noticing the lack of spectators, I was thinking perhaps you could cheer and they would hear you on the field? Stub Hub had $7 seats for sale yesterday morning (including will call).

                            The field looked like a skating rink--did you get that impression?

                            I have only been in that building once. All in all, not a bad facility. Relatively easy to get in and out of.

                            You have won several in a row now on your annual trip. Papa and young man still love you!

                              The point spread was 5.5. They more than covered that. You're not going to blow out a team in the NFL if you keep pounding the run like Marvin did and don't pick up TOs. I think Marvin wanted the safe win and didn't want to blow out his close friend on the other sideline

                                I think they have a very good chance to beat the Chargers in 2 weeks, particularly if the weather's bad. The Chargers will have nothing to play for
