Breakfast with Brownie


Hey Browns fans Good Morning!!!

Hope everyone had a pretty good Monday to start the week, but nowthe countdown to Sunday is officially five days and counting.

As if you all didn’t know by now, considering it’s all we have talked about the past few

days, is this game in Cincinnati on Sunday is a must win.  It’s definitely not too early to be talking about must win at this point in the season, because a Browns win would put them in the thick of the AFC North hunt, with the playoffs in sight.

It is quite ironic that it must happen on the road, because that is somewhere the Browns have been pretty dreadful since 2011.  The Browns went into Indianapolis on Sept. 18, 2011, and beat the Colts 27-19.  Since that day in September, the Browns away record has been a dismal 2-17.  If the 2013 Browns intend on keeping their playoff hopes alive, they must learn to win on the road, with four of their final seven games coming away from First Energy Stadium.

Will this road trend be broken and with it the playoff drought, that has plagued the Browns since their last appearance in 2002?

We will find out Sunday which way the Browns will be trending…

Brownie Bites

Browns veteran linebacker D’Qwell Jackson on whether the Browns are ready to seize the moment in Cincinnati on Sunday.  “Yeah,” he said. “You talk to the Cleveland community, I’m pretty sure they’ll tell you it’s time. And I’m telling you personally – it’s time. We definitely earned the right to be in this position. We just have to take care of our business.”

 

Defensive tackle Jabaal Sheard had this to say when asked about going on the road away from their own fans.  “It’s about coming together,” Sheard said. “You’ve got to depend on the guy next to you because you don’t have the crowd behind you. We’re going to have to make our own positive energy.”
