Cleveland Browns Jerseys

A Decent Year Wraps Up With a Win

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Braylon Edwards, right, celebrates his 45-yard, second-quarter touchdown catch with running back Jason Wright (29)

Well the regular season is done. Now we have to sit back and wait until tonight to see if we made it. Today’s game had it’s bright moments then again it had it’s usual problems. As for my letter on AFC Stats leaders, Joshua Cribbs proved my last line. ” no need to list stats, the best”. On his 53 yard return of a punt, he almost broke it all the way. Then on his 76 yard return he did take it to the house. He also made 3 instant tackles on special teams, on kick coverage’s. I mean as soon as SF’s punt returner caught the punt he was tackled by Cribbs. He get’s my vote for game MVP.

Anderson had a typical mediocre day. He completed just barely 50% of his passes, had an interception, and in the 3rd quarter he threw behind Winslow and Edwards on back to back plays, and missed some open receivers.

Edwards had an average day. He had 3 catches for 67 yards, dropped 2 (1 in the end zone), and had a penalty for un sportsmanlike conduct, and a TD. Winslow had an average day also. He had 4 catches for 62 yards, dropped 1 in the end zone. He even showed his anger a bit on a play where Anderson threw a low pass behind him and smacked the ground while getting up. Wright also dropped a pass in his hands in the end zone.

Lewis had a great day. He had 26 carries for 128 yards. That’s a 4.9 average. Savage says the Browns and Lewis’s agent are talking contract. They want to keep him but sign him to 1 year contracts.

The defense looked pretty good except for stopping Gore’s running game, even though they held him under 100 yards. The linebackers had 5 sacks. Not a lot of pressure from the line though. The defensive line was only credited with 10 out of 40 tackles.

Last but certainly not least, what everyone has been waiting to see, was Brady Quinn’s first appearance. He looked pretty good. He missed his first 2 passes but Vickers should have caught the one he didn’t catch. He kept his composure and held his ground in the pocket. Edwards, Winslow each dropped a TD pass in their hands from Quinn.

I’m sure every Cleveland Browns fan has to agree that this team has been a vast improvement over any other team since the rebirth. I think we have a lot to look forward to. I’m sure we’d love to see the playoffs this year, but even if we don’t make it we won 10 games in the regular season. That’s a big improvement. It’s been 9 years since the Brownies came back to town. We have been waiting for something to get excited about for years. GO BROWNS … and COLTS.
