Breakfast with Brownie


Good Morning Browns Fans and Happy Black Friday to all you shoppers out there!!!

Hope all of you enjoyed your day with your families eating good food, telling great stories and of course sitting in front of

the television watching football all day.

In the early game we watched the Detroit Lions absolutely maul the Green Bay Packers 40-10 in Detroit.  The win puts the Lions on top of the division standings at 7-5 and puts the Packers record at 5-6-1.  This was the Lions first Thanksgiving win in ten years.

The second of the three games saw the Dallas Cowboys score 24 unanswered points to beat the Oakland Raiders 31-24 in the Big D.  The Cowboys were led by running back DeMarco Murray, who ran for three touchdowns.  The Cowboys stay atop the NFC East standings at 7-5 with four weeks remaining and a showdown with their arch rival Philadelphia Eagles in week 17.

And finally, all of Cleveland’s favorite game of the day..not, the Baltimore Ravens hosting the Pittsburgh Steelers.  This was a heavy fight from start to finish, which saw the Steelers fight back to come within a two point conversion of tying the game late in the fourth quarter.  The two point conversion failed, as did the onside kick attempt, and the Ravens went on to run the remaining 1:06 off the clock to pull off the 22-20 Thanksgiving night victory.

Maybe one day soon, we will be back in the mix, slugging it out for a chance to climb back into the division race in the NFC North.

Playing in a meaningful game late in the season isn’t too much to ask, is it?

Browns left tackle Joe Thomas’ one word answer when asked to reflect on the years of losing that have followed a teasing 10-6 rookie season.  “It’s drudgery,” he said.

Browns cornerback Joe Haden on whether motivation would be a problem for players over the last five weeks.  “The playoff picture is big, it’s super big, but at end of the day whatever you do on tape is your resume,” he said. “If you don’t play for the Browns the other 31 teams want to see what you are able to do. That whole, ‘If you’re not motivated to play because you have nothing to play for, the playoffs,’ then you don’t deserve to be in the locker room, you don’t deserve to be in the league.

“You can’t go out there and play weak because you’re out of the picture. What is that going to do for the next people who come in? ‘You guys look unmotivated.’ I don’t have time for that here.”

>I believe there really is no more to say after reading this tweet from Keith.  He is absolutely spot on in his assessment of the Ravens-Steelers matchup.

>Some guys just don’t get it.  Did you ever think Brandon that if you played well, you wouldn’t be hearing it from the so-called 5-year olds.  When you got the benefit of the doubt through the beginning of your rookie year, you were loving the twitter experience,  but now after some of the most dismal play we have seen out of the quarterback spot this year and most of last year, twitter just isn’t right for you anymore.  Sometimes you need to put your big boy pants on and own up to your failures!!
