Browns Win Third Straight; Stop Raiders 23-9

As the snow flurries come down at the Stadium and the Raiders Back towards the Dog Pound this is what Cleveland Football is all about. The Browns playoff hopes have been done for weeks but that hasn’t stopped them for playing for Coach Mangini. This team has won three straight games and playing good football to close out the season. Derek Anderson played decent not making to many mistakes.

He didn’t have any turnovers and was able to manage the game. Harrison had another great game rushing for over 100 yards again in back to back weeks and played well other then a fumble on the 6 yard line. Harrison ended up breaking the Browns rushing attempt record with 39 carries.

He totaled 148 rushing yards and is beginning to make a case that the Browns might not need a running back in this years free agent class. Josh Cribbs played good running the Wildcat and helping the Special Teams unit back the Raiders up to the one yard line with a very nice play on keeping the ball out of the end zone. The Browns pressured Frye into making some mistakes and rushing some throws.

Frye ended up throwing 3 interceptions in his return back to Cleveland. The Cleveland Browns were able to win there second straight at home and third straight game overall. Massaquoi had some nice catches also today, highlighted with a touchdown reception right in front of the Dog Pound. The Browns will try to win there fourth straight game of the season against the Jaguars next Sunday. Browns Win!!! Browns Win!!!!

    This is good. If this team is starting to bond together and gaining some momentum going into the off-season, then they can believe they are building upon on more firm foundation than last year. This draft is crucial for this team to change its fortunes. A good GM is essetnial to handle the player personnel aspects of the organization. Holmgren has shown that he is not so special at selecting talent . . . more like average, at best. Mangini has shown that he has issues with either selecting or coaching talent. Reducing his power is wise. If, as those who observe these things say, Holmgren knows his limitations, then he will undoubtedly hire a savvy Gm to handle the personnel in this organization. That takes even more out of Mangini’s sphere of influence. And Mangini will be back — for at least one more year. Gruden does not want to re-enter coaching until 2011. If this team plays well next year, then there is no need to worry about it. But, it Mangini proves that he cannot coach to his talent but is a mindless “system” guy, then a very positive change could be made.

    I just hope the Cowher mantra doesn’t start; I hear he is entering coaching next year from espn. I hope everyone realizes he’s a stealer, that there is no guarantee that because he has some limited success with a very well put together organization will not suggest the same here, and I really d on’t see him working well ‘under’ Holmy.

    I don’t think the team was playing for Mangini. The team owes us fans a few wins. They want don’t want to be embarrassed, and they’re finally looking like a professional team.
