Is there hope after such a crushing loss?

There is no question that today's loss was the worst of the five the Browns have suffered this year.  Just like in the first Ravens loss, I feel like I got run over by a truck.

I just don't understand how in the hell we went from 27-13 up to losing 37-27.  I just sat there in disbelief watching the events unfold.  You simply cannot give the Ravens D any momentum, because they just feast on it.  And when you have a chance to make plays (BRAYLON!!!) you have to make them.

The frustrating thing is, 27 points should be enough to beat the Ravens.  The offense did not play well by any means, and the coaches did a terrible job of making adjustments, but thanks to Joshua Cribbs we were able to get 27 points on the board.

The defense really failed us today.  We made Joe Flacco-Ray Rice-Derrick Mason look like Troy-Emmit-Irvin today.  And that should not happen.  BMac and Eric Wright have been really solid all year, but they both got burned badly today.

All in all, there is nothing that can really be said except that was an absolutely crushing loss the Browns suffered today.  And I've been as optimistic as anyone, but it is really to see how we can recover from today's loss and still go 6-2 to give ourselves a fighting chance at the playoffs.

I will say one thing though -- Derek Anderson made a very poor decision on the pass that Suggs picked off, but today's loss was definitely not his fault.  Braylon's drops, the defensive failures, and the coaches' inability to be creative in establishing some semblance of a running game all contributed to this loss more than Derek.  He is awfully inconsistent, and not good enough to win games on his own.  But I hope that the boos at the end of the game were for everyone, not just DA.
