    The Hypocrisy of BQ Nation, Quantified

    If the last Baltimore loss was the Defences fault, are you guys saying that the Denver loss isn't? I still hear you crying for DA to come back in... Does that mean you accept BQ's post game and you blame that loss on him? Was he really supposed to put up 37 points in his first NFL start? Doesn't that seem like asking too much? (No doubt it would have been great if he'd done it!)
  2. I thought they did some cool stuff before the game, and I liked some of their camera angles. (other times I was wondering what the hell the camera man was doing). I also liked how they didn's bash the Browns the whole pregame and first half. I was just wondering what you all thought.
  3. I did hear some of that, but I can over look it. I mean no that's not good but I was just happy to hear a set of announcers who didn't make it known that they thought the Browns would get slapped around the whole game. I also enjoyed some of their pregame stuff and different camera angles. How long has that network been around? Who were the announcers? Maybe they are just morons?
  4. I have a big test in class tonight so I have to record this game on a freaking VCR. I should be home around 10pm but I am betting the game wont be over till closer to midnight. Just wondering so I can figure out how to watch this game and still go to work at 7.

    Jamal Lewis

    Ok this thread is already nuts enough but I agree with you naysayers, Jamall needs to go, he's obviously out of gas as this clip I just made will prove without a doubt. (sarcasm) http://replay-re-cutter.nfl.com/clip.as ... 77037A5D80

    Ok I have to know

    Are any of the posters here on this forum the people to go to Browns games and chant for Brady?? I admit I did at the only preseason game I went to LAST year. (against the Lions) I knew that Anderson was better than Frye but I was afraid I wouldn't get a chance to see what Quinn could do. I have been to 7 Browns games since then and I have never once chanted for Brady... I was at the Steelers game this year and while dissapointed I never chanted or did anything that I thought would help the Browns lose. In fact I was very dissapointed by what many of the Browns fans were doing. Some even tried to pick a fight with me in a bathroom!! None of the Steelers fans did this. In fact most of them were polite and wished us a good game. I know that we are all frustrated with the way this team has been since it came back but we really need to grow up! It is a fact that Anderson has not been performing well and I know it's for many reasons. I see no reason at this point in the season to not put in Brady. Let's see what we've got there and go with it! Wear your Jerzeys, cheer for your team and have a good time tomorrow! Don't be a bunch of sour grapes because everything is not going you/our way. We'll get our day, every dog has one. It just takes a true fan to stick out all the bullshit and not bail or bash our team at every misfortune. (I admit I ranted about Anderson earlier this week but that's just because a switch was needed and I was afraid they weren't even going to give it a try.)
  8. hmm that wont work because I want to put most of these highlights in a clip, it would be way too long. I really wanted to make one of Shaun Rogers landing on quarterbacks but they don't have the clips of them on here.
  9. Very nice!! Made me smile! I love this team!! (though they do make it hard sometimes!!) You have inspired me to try my hand at this.

    History is going to be made Thursday Night

    All I know is that I really hope he doesn't make me put a clown wig on him. (I really don't think he will)
  11. Team shouldn't cheer until the game is won http://www.ohio.com/sports/browns/33810284.html By Patrick McManamon Beacon Journal sports columnist Published on Tuesday, Nov 04, 2008 BEREA: Maturity shows in a lot of ways, some direct, some subtle. In the third quarter of the game Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens, the Browns were ahead by 14 points. A sack of Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco on second down led to a celebration worthy of a Super Bowl. Players danced, hugged and ran around the field like a playoff spot had been clinched. You were waiting for the confetti to fall, for the spotlights to swirl around the field and for the NFL to stop the game to present game balls to weepy Browns who would then thank their moms and cousins and Paul Pierce for contributing to their success. This is the trend in the NFL these days. The slightest little thing is cause celebre. But it is emblematic of the Browns, with whom it seems that the proverbial cart has been placed miles ahead of the proverbial horse. Even receiver Joe Jurevicius, who conceded Monday that he will not play this season because of a staph infection, addressed that issue when he mentioned the preseason accolades and the team's performance. ''There should be a lesson to be learned,'' Jurevicius said. That lesson deals with being professional, with approaching every game and every play as if it matters, and with not counting anything until it actually is registered in the column labeled ''W.'' It means being happy about but not excessively celebrating a second-down sack when the other team still has a third-down play. It means thinking about what to do on third down instead of running 25 yards into the end zone to point at fans. Think about the implications of that celebration on second down followed by a third-down conversion. The Browns told themselves that the sack was the be-all and end-all. If the Ravens can come back from a be-all and end-all play to convert a third down, what in the world happens on the rest of the plays? We all saw. Same thing happens when a player makes a key drop with the score tied, a la receiver Braylon Edwards. Quarterback Derek Anderson made an outstanding play to avoid the rush and to find Edwards deep down the middle. Edwards dropped it. Anderson walked off the field, hands on his head, almost as if he were saying, ''What else do I have to do?'' Perhaps it's coincidence, but the offense went in the tank after that play. One of the things coach Bill Belichick instilled in the New England Patriots is the ability to forget a play and move on to the next one. The Patriots have a bad play, they get up and go to the huddle and go on to the next play. It's called a professional approach. The Browns did not have the maturity Sunday to do that. Just like they've not had the maturity to handle success all season. Wins over the New York Giants and Jacksonville Jaguars seemed to have the potential to lead to bigger things. The Browns followed those with losses. Stinking, embarrassing losses. Kipling wrote of meeting with triumph and disaster and treating those impostors ''just the same.'' The Browns don't treat triumph as an impostor. They cuddle with it, embrace it, hug it like it's a silly stuffed animal. They celebrate a single play as if it just ended wars on all continents. It's just too much. Late in the game, fans were chanting for Brady Quinn, as if Anderson didn't throw a perfect pass that easily could have led to a game-changing play. The chant was predictable, and it now appears the Browns are going to give Quinn a chance Thursday. Anderson shares the responsibility for the loss Sunday, but he was not the prime culprit. Benching him now might provide a different look, but it does it in a short week. Let's also consider the folks around Anderson, and their performance this season. Anderson's main receiver has a league-high 13 dropped passes. Coach Romeo Crennel basically said Monday that if he had another receiver worth squadoosh, he would play him instead of Edwards. He doesn't — unless someone is seeing something in Syndric Steptoe and Steve Sanders that I'm not. Anderson's second receiver? Donte' Stallworth was on the inactive list. Kellen Winslow had five catches but also ranted and gesticulated after every little block (a tight end is supposed to block, right?) The offensive line had a tough time with the Ravens' defense, especially when guard Eric Steinbach left with a rib injury. The reason the screen play blew up in the Browns' face late in the game was that Anderson had a guy in his face and, rather than take a sack on third down, he threw to the spot hoping running back Jason Wright would be there. There's always the possibility a new quarterback provides a spark. But changing a quarterback will not change the underlying problems holding this team back. That is an inherent lack of maturity fueled by false visions of grandeur — for the team collectively and for some of its individuals. They treat triumph with too much celebration and disaster with too little recognition. Kipling called those traits impostors. The real impostors this season are the Browns. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Patrick McManamon can be reached at pmcmanamon@thebeaconjournal.com.

    Get that loser off our team!

    Hey it looks like my post had some effect!! He's not off the team (which is ok) but at least they are going to try BQ!! I don't think he's going to be amazing but at this point I'll settel for anything better than terrible!

    Get that loser off our team!

    I just made a picture to help show how good I feel D.A is.

    Get that loser off our team!

    I think we have given D.A. plenty of chances. Now (to me) He's just like Charlie Frye. I don't hate him but I'll be celebrating when he goes!

    Get that loser off our team!

    I like getting rapped...
  18. manbearpig

    Whos else saw it????!!!!!!

    I agree.
  19. manbearpig

    Get that loser off our team!

    How about you try to play like you did in the second quarter? I don't know, maybe get a couple of first downs... or even one? Get the defence off the field? Get some momentum back? Or you could try not shaking in your boots so bad that you throw terrible passes and interceptions? I really don't care if Quinn plays. I just want to see a quarterback that doesn't look like an idiot.

    Get that loser off our team!

    I honestly think they have written off the season. I do not believe for one second we will see Quinn this season. I don't mind him sitting back and getting experience. Aparently he's learning what not to do!! I hope he brought a note book be Dumb Ass sure is showing him a lot of it.

    Shaun Rogers Sack Video

    I would love to see a Shaun Rogers video compiling all of his sacks, qp hits and good plays from this season!! Is anyone on here capable of doing that? (I'm not) I have to settle for recording the games and doing my own instant replays. I think it would be a ton of fun to watch a compilation of it though!

    Ravens @ Browns

    I think it probably will be a close game. My brother will be there in the Dawg Pound and it's on his birthday. I hope we freaking crush the dirty rat birds!!
  23. I definetly wont miss him. I don't post on here all that often but it is aggravating reading his/their garbage on almost every thread.
