Almost There, Waiting on the First Win

 

With one monkey off the back, it’s time to shrug the next one.  The Browns finally scored in the second half.  Seneca Wallace showed that he could lead a team and score points.  The Browns hung into this game longer than I expected.  I was impressed when the lead changed in the second half.  I wish that the defense had stepped up on pulled out a stop.  The thing that impressed me the most was the fact that Hillis was able to run all over the Baltimore Ravens defense.

As requested by Rufio, I have compiled that data from the first 3 weeks in each season, 2009 and 2010 respectfully.  Last year the Browns played the Ravens on week 3 and this was the infamous Brady Quinn benching for the outstanding Derek Anderson.  This year there is a bit more stability and the Browns have more offense.  Speaking of the offense, the Browns were the first team to score a touchdown on the Ravens defense (moral victory I guess).

So the stats indicate that everything is moving in the right direction, but the season in the win-loss column is the same.  The stat that stands out to me the most is the PF-PA.  The team is scoring and I believe that is a credit to sticking with the coaching staff.  The players that were on the team last year know what to expect and the new ones can be taught by the veterans.  With a new competitive edge to the team I feel like they can pull out an upset win in one of the upcoming games.  My hope is the Steelers, a welcome back to Big Ben.
