The Cleveland Clowns

Posted by Matt on September 9, 2007


Whoever had 1.5 quarters in the “How Far In To The Season Before Browns’ Fans Call For Quinn” pool, please step forward to collect your prize.

That’s right, it took just one-and-a-half quarters for the wheels to fall off of the Cleveland Browns’ season as the Pittsburgh Steelers put it to ’em by a score of 34-7 (That was our Straight Up “Nasty Boys’ Bet” of the week, by the way.).

Not only were the Cleveland fans calling for Brady Quinn while the ineffective Charlie Frye was on the field, they continued chanting when replacement Derek Anderson struggled to the point of cheering when Anderson was slow to get up after a helmet shot to his sternum.

With 0 points in the first half, 6 total sacks on the combination of Charlie Frye and Derek Anderson, and 5 turnovers (2 interceptions, 3 fumbles), this was a game that even a “soulja” couldn’t save:


As I stated in this week’s “Nasty Boys’ Bets,” the Browns’ fans will get out their brown paper bags and scissors and the over/under for them wearing the grocery sacks to home games is five weeks:


Meanwhile Coach Romeo will at least win one thing, the “Coach Who Most Resembles Mascot” contest:

In the end, the one positive to come from the loss was that the roller coaster ride of the game allowed us to see the many, emotional faces of Browns’ head coach Romeo Crennel:












Going to church.


Feeling bloated.


Going to lose job this year.

    Although I am sure at some point in time the Browns will have a solid team, they are generally a very safe bet to bet against.

    The question at this point is, how bad are they really?

    Oh, I don’t know…I was just being self-promoting on the easy pick with the Steelers…not like I faired any better in my other Bet or my weekly Picks…

    Plus I will take a lot of opportunities to make the Browns, Steelers, and Ravens look worse than they do as I am a Bengals homer..

    It was just a fun little post, no real analysis…

  3. I want to go on record by saying that I rode the Shitsburgh train all the way to pay dirt in my fantasy league. I benched the Bears d who had a decent showing, and Joey Galloway who had a piss poor showing, for Santonio Holmes and Pittsburgh D. I also trashed my opponent pregame for starting Vince Young over Big Ben. Talk about the mistake of the century in fantasy football.

    Cleveland Browns vs. Appalachian State Mountaineers.

    That’s right, an NFL team against a FCS (Div. 1-AA) college football team. This will be played under NFL rules.

    I pick the Mountaineers to win by a score of 27-3.
