    The Browns Path to the Playoffs

    If it came down to we win and the Bengals beat the Steelers in week 17, and we WIN THE DIVISION, that would be completely insane. It just might come down to that.

    The Browns Path to the Playoffs

    Had the NFL not deliberately taken our victory against Oakland from us, all we'd have had to do is win out, and have the Dolphins, Titans, and Colts each lose only ONE of their next three and we'd be in as a wild card. Alternatively, to win the division, we'd have had to win out, and have the Steelers lose two of their next three, which include the Patriots and the Saints, with the possibility the Big Ben can't go or will not be full strength. Both pretty decent odds scenarios. That notwithstanding, the more likely path ahead is we win out and the Steelers collapse, as we need much more help for the wild card scenario. They should lose to the Patriots and the Saints (they play them in the Super Dome,) and Bengals will need to dig deep and pull the upset week 17. Could happen. Even if we miss, we are very realistically in the fight for 8-7-1 which is a winning season and well worth fighting for in its own right.

    these losses like this dont even really bother me....

    The number one problem we were supposedly going to have going into this game was dealing with the Texan's pass rush. Clowney, Watt, etc. Number of times Baker was sacked? Zero. Number of times we sacked the mobile and elusive Deshaun Watson? Four. We outgained the Texans - on the road - by about 50 or so yards. We weren't going to win (on the road) with a negative four turnover ratio, but the really bad officiating certainly didn't help. Very questionable pass interference/defensive holding calls on us, an extremely questionable basically phantom holding call which negated a touchdown while the Texans are holding all day long and it's pretty much never called. Look at Baker in the second half, mobile, throwing into very tight windows like it's nothing against a top defense. A game with multiple picks? Bound to happen for a rookie and in the big picture will be helpful to his development. We held the Texans to five field goals and one touchdown on defense. Holding the Texans to field goals was the heart of Williams' gameplan for victory. While the victory eluded us, the gameplan was correct and absolutely achieved. Would have liked to have won to stay in the playoff picture of course, but not in the least bit upset with this loss.

    Steelers exposed?

    After Jacksonville kicked the living Sheet out of the Steelers in the first half and could only produce 3 field goals, it was almost ordained the Steelers would rally at the half and get things going and win the game. You cannot dominate like that and just kick field goals and expect to beat Big Ben. If you kick the Sheet out of Big Ben for an entire half, the scoreboard had better reflect it a hell of a lot more than 9-0.

    Hueless to join Bungles

    Serious question: How does a guy like this last so long in the NFL with a "good" reputation to the point where everyone wanted to hire him (that was looking) as a head coach the year we got him? Is NFL coaching really just a bunch of guys whose goal is to stay employed in the league where developing a team's talent and abilities to the point where they can make the playoffs and potentially the Super Bowl is not necessarily the only or even most desired tactic to achieving said goal? Hue was the same guy at all his other stops. That Hue could behave the way he did in Cleveland, never make ANY attempt to change his ways no matter how poor our record was, still expect to immediately get hired AFTER being fired, and the actually immediately GET hired right after he GOT fired, really makes you wonder.

    Hueless to join Bungles

    Let us not forget that Hue tried to send a 2nd and 3rd to the Bengals for AJ McCarron last year. Luckily, this insane ploy was stopped by someone in the front office. Hue's plan last year was to basically give a 2nd and 3rd to the Bengals for the NFL QB equivalent of a used styrofoam Filet O Fish box so that when Hue was inevitably fired, the Bengals would give him a job in return. Even though the trade was scuttled, that is still what happened. The man never seemed to have the good of the Cleveland Browns football team in mind. He was always thinking about himself. It never occurred to him that the best defense (of his career) was a good offense (doing your very best to win football games in Cleveland.)

    Hue went 8-8 in his only season with the Raiders and I believe that was the year we broke Jason Campbell's leg early in the season to boot. I had held the view that Hue got some kind of raw deal in Oakland as going 8-8 in your rookie year as a Coach after losing your starting QB should more or less universally be looked favorably upon. However, given what OUR experience has been with Hue, do you think behind the scenes Hue showed the same qualities he showed in Cleveland and the Raiders FO said F this s*it you're outta here? In retrospect, what do you all think *really* went down in Oakland after that one season?

    2018 NFL TV Distribution Maps - Week 10

    A few iterations of the "Trail of Tears" in the 1830s took several nations worth of Native Americans in Georgia, Tennessee and Alabama and, after killing upwards of half of them on the forced march there in the dead of winter, dropped them off in Oklahoma. The upshot is that today there's lots of descedents of folks originally from the "greater" Atlanta area living in Oklahoma, as this tv distribution map so clearly shows.

    Holding

    So, was it 2nd and 0 just prior to the play that was flagged? How can a holding penalty be called on a 2nd down and then it is immediately 2nd and 10? How is this logically possible?

    Holding

    There are three penalties on the Chiefs - we accept one for holding - and then it is 2nd and 10...???

    ***Official Browns @ Steelers Game Day Thread***

    The WORST clock management I have ever seen in an NFL game has just transpired. We have three timeouts PIttsburgh is inside our 20 - pretty much guaranteed to score. There's slightly less than 2:00 on the clock - do we use our timeouts after each Pittsburgh play trying to make sure we have 1:00+ left when Pittsburgh inevitably scores, either 3 or 7, and we get the ball back ? No. We simply fiddle-Shmuck around and leave all three timeouts on the board as the half expires. Unreal. Hue really has no idea what the hell is going on.

    Fire Hue now!

    How do you go 4-0 in turnovers in regulation - on the ROAD no less - and not pull out a win?

    What would have happened if...

    Hue had refused to have the team take the field to start the 2nd Half (a la Earle Bruce against LSU in 1987) until the line judge/whole crew etc who missed the false start call - which not only would have taken points off the board but would have pushed SD out of their kicker's field goal range - had been replaced or some other sort of demand had been met, as a protest against the absolutely horrible officiating. That call was completely inexcusable and is somewhat going to be overlooked due to the fact that we got blown out and it ultimately wasn't the major factor in why we lost. If the game had been close,, however, that call easily could have cost us the game. Again. I mean these calls are totally unreal and they just KEEP COMING, game in and game out. I have personally never seen ANYTHING like this. I don't expect he'd do it, but just wonder what would have happened if he - or any NFL coach in a similar situation for that matter - showed some Shmucking balls and stood up to these Shmucking referees.. I mean, it's not like everyone isn't totally aware we are being screwed week in and week out. Big time.
