Green With Envy  9/17



I am psyched,

Time’s up, let’s do this!

i guess the old saying is true,

"if you’re an NFL quarterback and you rape a girl in a bathroom stall in Georgia you will be suspended for a few games, reach the super bowl, lose, and then suck in the next year’s opener."

I saw very few folks around here acting like this would be an automatic win. The only troll I see here right now is you.

Since you brought it up, undisciplined is precisely the quality that would never be found in a Mangini coached team.

I’m not looking to start a debate, just making an observation.

So who thinks running laps is a bad idea now?

Shurmur carried one one Mangini tradition — blowing 4th quarter leads.

St. Louis Daboll is our head coach.

We played one good quarter, the rest of the game was pretty pathetic. I actually thought the D played above my expectations after the first quarter (the Green TD was poor execution and coaching moreso than the fault of our defensive players.)
I question the decision to try and start Pinkston, was the coaching staff just being hopeful or could they really not see it in practice? He got benched after a couple series. Very disappointed by the running game, but I don’t expect it to be this poor again until we face Balt and Pitt.
Only bright spots for me were D’Qwell Jackson and Joe Haden. Both looked very good, Haden was an absolute stud unless you want to fault him for the Green TD, but I am laying that on the coaches.

After watching the "game" (quotation marks intentional) I now see what Mike Holmgren meant when he said a month or so ago, "There are going to be some growing pains here for awhile." Truer words were never spoken. Actually, I’m glad they couldn’t pull this one out because it should serve as a great example to the younger, developing players: you screw up in this league, you lose. If they want more reinforcement of that maxim, show them the Pittsburgh tape from today. Even the vaunted, often-hailed as "invincible" Steelers couldn’t recover from 7 turnovers. Baltimore (rightly so) pounced on them and beat the living crap out of them. Mistakes equal losing at this level and these young dudes might as well learn that lesson right now. So, fans, get ready for a season chock full of "growing pains" and hope that next year we use our two first round picks on a stud RT and a real WR threat, with the rest of the picks in the other rounds going defense (LB and CB most notably).

Mangini made us hard to beat. I prefer someone who’s mindset is more of "playing to win" than "playing not to lose", but we can’t trade in discipline for aggressiveness. We’ve got to have both.

Why all the panic? Don’t get me wrong, it sucked and we should have won. Yes I said it, I don’t care if it pisses off Bengals fans. But damn, some of people are acting like we lost the Superbowl.
We went from one of the oldest teams in the NFL last season, to one of the youngest. Whoever didn’t expect things like yesterday is crazy. We are going to have some up and downs.
It’s a marathon people, not a sprint. Step back from the ledge.

Don’t worry, Joe Haden sucks.

This one really hurts because we never gave ourselves a chance to win. The penalties, the terrible punts, the coach knocking a ref over, there were mistakes all over by both coaches and players.
I believe this coaching staff can take us where we need to go, but they will have to balance their laid-back confidence with more discipline and coordination. We were far from a well-oiled machine in every facet of play. I figured we’d take a step back from the past regime in these areas, but good lord. We have plenty of things to work out if we are to achieve our potential.
The best plays in the world don’t mean a damn thing if you can’t execute. Today, we couldn’t stop tripping over our own feet.

who is this "holly" and why has no one explained to her the disastrous effects smoking is having on her lungs?

"Holly Smokes" sounds like a porn name.

not if she’s in porn she isnt…

depending on the definition of "holy," in retrospect, it might mean a lot more.

"We’ve coached it." Except you didn’t.

I’d like to invite a large portion of you down to the beautiful, historic Huntington Bank Building at the corner of E.9th and Euclid in downtown Cleveland. Originally known The Union Commerce Building, she was built in 1924 and designed by the same architect as The Terminal Tower. The same Italian marble adorns what is the largest bank lobby in the world. This massive 22 story structure has the largest footprint of any building downtown and is second in square footage to only Key Tower at nearly 1.5 million square feet.
Each floor is 55,000 sq. ft., with a huge southern exposure that is just under 100 yards long on Chester Ave. The west side runs the entire length from Chester to Euclid on E 9th Street. The massive rooftop should have just enough room on the ledge for those of you that would prefer to jump after one regular season game.
I’ll be 280 ft. below on the ground while I await the Colts and the other 14 remaining games.

Theres something like 7 billion people in the world. You’d think thered be at least 50 that could drop a ball and kick it 45 yards, but I guess its not that way.

The Browns tried to put him on the IR for sucking, but was not allowed. So Joe Thomas punched him in the back.

"PFF also praised Cleveland’s ability to stop the run, pointing out performances by Jayme Mitchell, Phil Taylor, and T.J. Ward specifically."

There are ways of making it simple to us but not very simple to others.
