And he's going to throw for 300 yards as the Browns win.
And then the new Browns president/GM/coach will have to figure out if he's the guy...or if it's still Weeden...or Colt again...or Matt Barkley...or Michael Vick...or Zombie Otto Graham...

The O-line did not block for McCoy the same way they block for Weeden. I realize Denver was blitzing like crazy because they knew the Browns were going to throw every down, but I haven't seen the O-Line get overrun like that all year long. Something felt very fishy about it.

Isn't the answer still Bernie Kosar?

I have to say I envy Browns fans this week. They win and that's a pretty great season for them, 6 wins and two over Pittsburgh. They feel good about Brandon Weinke (or is it Chris Weeden?) and about drafting a RB in the first round even though the Redskins drafted a guy in the 6th round who out rushed him.

Hell, maybe Shumurmur even keeps his job, assuming Saban doesn't lose his mind after winning another title and decide he wants the job. And if they lose, who cares? Just another in a long line of 11 loss seasons, but they're looking up!

WTF does Pittsburgh have to play for? Avenging a regular season loss with the 3rd stringer playing QB? Who cares? And if they lose, which is a distinct possibility even if Bernie Kosar has to come out of retirement to play for old man Weinke and Colt "the Concussed" McCoy, that's 0-2 against the...Browns.

The year is a failure regardless for Pittsburgh. But the Browns have a shot at 6 wins, which is a pretty big deal for them.

Are you saying Lomas Brown was coaching the O-line?

I think he's saying a million monkeys at a million typewriters (or, these days, keyboards) were coaching the O-line.

That was your imagination. Colt is 2 feet shorter than Weeden, and so the typical pass rush pressure appeared to close in on the target at a quicker rate of speed.

Yeah, I'd say that Cleveland is on it's way up. How far "up" really remains to be seen, but I feel like they're closer to breaking through than being awful with no hope for the future.

Shurmur isn't keeping his job ... and as far as Weeden goes, who ever takes over the coaching job is definitely going to want his own guy. Most Browns fans I know aren't that up on Weeden. McDaniels/Mallet combo is the most likely scenario being talked about now. Saban is a pipe dream. The man is close to Knute Rockne/Bo Schembechler/Woody Hayes/Bear Bryant territory. Who would give that up? You can retire from college coaching. You are most likely to be fired from NFL coaching. I wouldn't mind them keeping Jauron around as D coordinator, but Chilly and Shurmur have got to go. Not sure who the GM will be ... Lombardi isn't a step up ... more of a lateral move at best. Gonna be a strange off season.

Sorry, got off topic. I think the Steelers are fine ... just a bad year and I'm sure the Rooneys and Coach Foreman will get it straightened out in the next season or two ... they always do. God, I hate them.

Eh, it was the scrambles that made Colt McCoy at Texas. Meanwhile, every NFL coach is telling him to stay in the pocket, and thus he's still there three seconds after the pocket has collapsed with a dull expression on his face, and takes the sack.

Brandon Weeden does that as well. It's just that he didn't need to be coached to be a statue in the pocket.

My favorite excerpt from his wiki:
...were hard and accurate, teammates later said, and his long balls were soft. "I used to catch a lot of them one-handed," Lavelli said.

The gay old days of football.
