I’m already hearing the array of comments from Cleveland Browns fans on Sunday’s 38-37 loss at Detroit. The Browns had a 21-point first half lead and blew that by halftime. Some Browns fans are whining about a pass interference call which gave the Lions an untimed down to win the game on the one. Looked like pass interference to this impartial viewer.
What is fascinating about the loss is that going into the game, Cleveland had a whopping five offensive touchdowns on the year. Brady Quinn tossed four touchdowns in the loss. Pinch yourself Browns fans, then say ouch because you can’t dream this stuff up.
Other Browns fans are playing the “Whew, we almost won and blew our first overall draft pick chances”. Sorry Browns fans, you only get to pick one player with that strategy, you need about 20 to be a .500 team next year.
Again, I don’t enjoy seeing the Browns lose. I would prefer they win a few games as they truly are the laughing stock of the NFL these days. Call it sympathy, but Eric Mangini can’t get a royal straight flush if all the kings were taken out of the deck. They just don’t have the personnel to win right now. Bring Drew Brees in, it would make no difference.
It’s basketball season on the Shores of Lake Erie, as of 4:12 pm Sunday. Even the best and most patient fans in football – Cleveland Browns fans – have to be regurgitating with disgust.
