You have to love the NFL. It truely is a game of inches. After the Redskins game I said if Braylon holds onto that ball and we hit a field goal who knows what I am typing. If Matt Jones holds onto that ball in the endzone, who knows what I am typing today.
Derek Anderson bought himself more time as starting quarterback with his play today. Can anyone remember the last time he threw an interception?
Was a season really over at 0-3? Can they find a way to put it together for a meaningful playoff run? They showed they can stay with any team in the NFL. In the last 4 games since our disasterous 0-3 start we are 3-1. No trolls can claim we were picking off chumps, we took good teams down. This is the same Jacksonville team that beat the Steelers twice in the Ketchup Bottle in the winter. The Browns led the whole game through a tough heat. That was a previously unbeaten New York Giants football team on Monday Night.
A lot has been made of Kellen Winslow's absence during the Browns best games this year. I will make more a different absence, the drops. Nothing can stop a passing attack more than dropped passes. If our receivers (Braylon Edwards) can start catching the ball consistently...
Time for a new set of must wins. In order to make the playoffs the Browns will have to go 7-2 over their remaining schedule. Not an easy task. They also must beat the Ravens, Bengals, and probably the Steelers week 17.
How much time did DA buy himself with this win? One week. As long as there is playoff hope alive, he stays as quarterback. No pressure DA.
