Steelers Game Day 13 - @ Cleveland Browns

When I think of the Cleveland Browns this is what I think of:

I could say that this was going to be another gimme, but I would just be lying to you guys. The Chiefs and Raiders were gimmes and we all know how that went. I can't believe that it has really come to this. What a joke.

Brady Quinn obviously does not social network on the internet

Last week:
Oakland 27, Pittsburgh 24

Receiving: Holmes: 8 rec, 149 yards, 1 TD

San Diego 30, Cleveland 23
Passing: Quinn: 25/45, 271 yards, 3 TD, 0 INT
Rushing: Cribbs: 4 carries 38 yards
Receiving: Moore: 6 rec, 80 yards

The Browns very closely resemble the Oakland Raiders in the fact that both teams are terrible. Hopefully they don't resemble the Raiders when we say they beat the Steelers. Losing to the Browns could be the worst thing to ever happen to the Steelers, and to me this year. Especially after losing to the Chiefs and Raiders, who are also TERRIBLE.

I, for one, do not feel this season is over.

Sure we have to win all four of our games after losing four straight. Sure we need to get some help and have a few losses happen. Sure it's gonna be tough. But who better than the Pittsburgh Steelers to make that happen?

On to the Browns.

At QB they have Brady Quinn, their top pick from a few years ago. Quinn is completing 55% of his passes and has thrown for almost 1200 yards. He has tossed eight touchdown passes and five picks while having a QB rating that wouldn't make Kordell jealous.

Eight touchdown passes in his eight games played. Amazing.

Almost as amazing as those fireworks.

Jamal Lewis is the Browns leading rusher but he is on the IR and is going to retire from football due to a concussion. Lewis has always ran well against the Steelers but not this time. Jerome Harrison is the teams leading rusher with like 290 yards.

Get used to it.

Our Harrison is better.

Any chance to use this picture is golden.

The wide recievers include Mohamed Massaquoi, Mike Furrey, Chansi Stuckey and Josh Cribbs. They are not very good. Jerome Harrison is the teams second leading receiver with 178 yards.

The Browns defense is about as pedestrian as the Steelers right now. Shouldn't be a problem to get any kind of offense even if we don't play with Hines Ward. What we really need to do is convert on some red zone chances. The Steelers get into the red zone and you would think they have to get retaught the game of football.

The Drive said it best on ESPN Radio today. Win the toss, get the ball, score, have a good kick coverage, three and out then everyone on the team just take a deep breath. That would be the idea start. Will that happen? Who knows.

It is going to be cold.

The Steelers have to win. They will win.

Here We Go
