Well here we go, another national TV game for the Browns in which we come in with very low expectations. Last time, we knocked off the Giants -- still the only team to do so all season. Can lightning strike twice?
First, here's a pretty detailed Browns rant and preview of the Monday night game:
I'm not really sure what reasons there are to be positive heading into tomorrow's game. Even if we are up by 3 TDs in the 4th quarter, can there be an any confidence???
I do expect the team to come out and fight and try to put all of the infighting and disappointment of the last two weeks behind it. Goodness, let's hope so because the last two weeks have been awful.
I do think that if we win, Jerome Harrison, Joshua Cribbs, and Eric Wright will have a lot to do with it. Jerome is averaging more than 8 yards per touch, and surely one of these games the coaches will realize that he should get a minimum of 10-12 touches per game. Eric will need to play well against Lee Evans and keep him from getting deep. And Josh Cribbs is always our biggest advantage in every game.
If these three guys make some big, timely plays -- and if Brady plays in his first road start -- this is a very winnable game. 4-6 is still miles away from playoff contention, but at least it would be something to feel good about for a night.
What does everyone think? Is there any confidence left?
