Post-Game Thread: Victory at Last! Yay?

Head coach Eric Mangini and defensive coordinator Rob Ryan celebrate the Cleveland Browns' first victory of the season.

The Cleveland Browns are no longer winless. If we needed some form of momentum heading into Pittsburgh next week, I suppose a win is uplifting. And, although it wasn't the reason we won, the Browns are 1-0 in the post-Braylon Edwards era.

Bottom line, a win is a win. Also bottom line, this was the type of game in which you could make a highlight reel solely on how much of a joke both teams were at points. QB Derek Anderson suffered from some drops, but on the game he was just 2-of-17 for 23 yards and an interception. And we won.

Trent Edwards proved my point prior to the game that he is one of the league's worst starting quarterbacks. Nonetheless, props to our defense for holding their own throughout the game. Most of all, our special teams unit deserves a ton of credit for an amazing effort that didn't need the help of Joshua Cribbs. Having two punts downed at the one, one punt downed at the four, and then a fumble recovery on a punt to set up the game-winning field goal for the Browns makes Dave Zastudil the game's MVP without question.

By the way: I chose the picture above for a reason. I was literally laughing my arse off after seeing Eric Mangini, Rob Ryan, and Derek Anderson celebrate as if they'd won the Super Bowl following the game.
