No, the unnecessary roughness part is the hit to the head. You repeat that situation 1000 times with 1000 different players and that punter gets leveled in every single one of them, there's zero question of that. It might be a shoulder to the chest (which is what the NFL wants, but glosses over the fact that it is the most dangerous hit because it FORCES the tackler/blocker to lower his head) which would not be illegal, but he's getting blown up either way. Really it's almost impossible to not level him on that play though. He needs to be blocked because he's trying to make a tackle, and since he's not looking and running upright, he's essentially going to run into a wall without looking which is going to result in a pancake even if the blocker just stands there.

Garvin was indeed fined:

Honestly, if the NFL wants to consider punters and kickers as defenseless players, then the NFL should require the punters/kickers to run off the field after they kick. The NFL is setting themselves up for trouble by declaring a player as defenseless and then letting him take part in the tackling/blocking.

We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

I've never seen two teams come out flatter with something to play for than the Ravens and Bears.

So the browns lost. again. Shocker.
Denver is the best team in the league.
Indianapolis confounds me.
Philadelphia, and Chip Kelly sure do make for entertaining football. That whole "blitzkrieg" style offense seems to work pretty well as long as you aren't playing against Manning, in the middle of the greatest statistical season in history.
I hate the Steelers. And I hate that they still have a chance at the playoffs.
San Diego making the playoffs would only validate incorrect assumptions that the problem with the team was solely Norv Turner.
Tom Brady would be MVP if not for Manning in the AFC. He's done more with nothing than I thought he would.
Did the Giants / Lions game prove that the Giants aren't as bad as their record, that Lions aren't as good as their record, or that both teams have serious discipline problems? I say D. All of teh above.
ARZ beat seattle in seattle. If RL had achievements, that would be a feat of strength.
Buffalo, I had to watch this game, at a family function. I still say Thad Lewis deserves a chance to be a starter somewhere. He continuously impresses me. His stats may not have been "great" yesterday, but he looked better than the stats.
Pacman Jones plays for the Bengals? WTF?! How did I not know he was still in the league?
STL is going to be a serious threat to that division if/when they ever get a franchise QB not made out of China.
Dallas is going to get destroyed next week. If that is what happens when you face the skins in a must win game, you are going to get run right the fuck over by a better team.
Tennessee beats jax, probably saving their coaches job.

Probably because he hasnt been arrested in a while. That said, given his past, its a given he would play for the State Pen. Bengals. =P

Von Miller is down and out with a torn ACL...weakening even more an already weak Broncos defense.

Having been in DC for the reign of Norv. Norv as a head coach can make any good team mediocre and keep it there.

I'm not arguing that. He may be a mediocre head coach. But the problems in San Diego didn't start and end with Norv is all I'm saying. They are still a pretty mediocre team, who has one hell of a w17 game to win if they want a chance at a winning season or the playoffs.

I highly doubt the stars will align in their favor this week but then again who knows with the NFL this season. No one wants to win the NFC North, the NFC East has been a dumpster fire down to its final week, the AFC North is "The Bengals and a bunch of teams that will apparently explode if they stray too far from .500"

As long as the Ravens don't get in I'll be satisfied by spending the entire offseason laughing at them and their 120 million dollar QB

Really? You're going there? I wouldn't expect a Brown's fan would want to start comparing past resumes. I mean, I don't think you are going to come out very well in a comparison to one of, if not the, most successful franchises since the merger, to... well one of the worst. #KnowWhenToQuit

Ben as well as quite a few others were injured.. and you only won by 6 points.

But I guess when you're forever irrelevant you need something to hang your hat on :)

I was simply going to the "Embarrass twice a year for a decade" comment.

You can say that it was because ben was hurt. but ok. Let's go there. 4 of the turnovers were with big ben's replacement. That leaves 4. And an L. to a team that is embarrassed twice a year for a decade. That's all I'm saying. The key part of the comment was the past decade, because post merger, pre-expansion, it was a damn good rivalry.

Going back 2 decades (17 seasons due to the move to B'more), Cleveland is like 6-32 against the Steelers (I think that includes today's Brown's loss). One of those seasons in which they got a win, they still lost twice due being eliminated by the Steelers in the playoffs, and in another season (the Brown's only other playoff appearance in that span) they lost 3 times to the Steelers, again being sent home by the Steelers in the playoffs after the two regular season losses (brutal).

So yeah, I guess you're right, congrats...I guess. The hashtag still applies in my opinion.

On another note, I fully expect for SD to easily handle a KC team mixing in backups, but it's still lol worthy to me that after the start the Steelers had that they are still in contention until the afternoon games in the last week. Parity I guess.

I'm going to warn you right now:


This post is going to be filled with profanity after this warning. I'm really really really unhappy.



The fucking factory of sadness is a joke. jimmy 3 sticks, joe banner, and michael lombardi have no fucking idea how the hell to do shit in the nfl. it's painfully obvious. Start with lombardi's dumbass comments about how gordon isn't a good player, to the double talk about chud (just 6 short weeks ago, they were in love, and very happy with him), to the absolutely asinine dumbshittery that they have done with the qb / rb situations.

if they fucking fire chudzinski, the nfl should step in, look at the front office, and say: Get the fuck out of here. You dont' know what you are doing. one year on the job. when you are trading away the players that were here in training camp, when you are creating derision amongst your players by actively shopping them through the season, This season was abysmal as a fan. It's been soul sucking. It's the second straight season in a row that I have BET AGAINST my favorite team, the team I root for, AND WON MONEY. That's right. I bet against the Browns winning games, and won. WHAT FUCKING FANBASE HAS PEOPLE WHO DO THIS?

Just the clowns. I can't even begin to explain just how soul sucking this season has been unless you are a fan of the browns. It doesn't matter if they were right about richardson. When that happened, it sucked the life right out of the fan base. Followed by the constant trying to trade gordon, followed by the

weeden
hoyer
campbell
weeden
campbell
weeden
cambell
hey we signed a trick shot guy
quarterback clusterfuck

or the
richardson
no he sucks so we'll trade him
and sign an old guy
oh wait he sucks
hey let's try this rainey guy
no he sucks
lets just waive him
oh shit. he really can run
so lets try this muppet
who sucks
so we'll get this other guy
oh hey, he not too terrible! There might be something here.
but we're going to fire the coach, and this guy was a practice squad player, so EFF THIS SHIT, HE'LL BE GONE IN A COUPLE OF WEEKS.
carousel at running back.

Jeezus, I shouldn't have started typing this. I was drinking when i started collecting my thoughts about this shit, and now i'm even more angry, and the glass of rum is gone.

one season. we blew it all fucking up for one god damn season with a new HC, OC, DC, blew up the defense, blew up so much, spent money on shit, all to fucking blow it up one season that we punted on back in september, on my fucking birthday.

The browns are a joke. I'm pretty sure, right now I hate jimmy 3 sticks, and his fellatio giving front office crony shitheads more than art modell, the hoodie, the cry baby brady, afraud, & braun all rolled into one fucking shitburger.


I retain the right to remove this semi drunken alcohol tirade if the browns don't fire chud.

I gotta think they have someone lined up. I mean they have too right? Otherwise, they are going to be reaching to the bottom of the barrel or taking a big risk on someone unexpected (which isn't all that unusual I guess). No one is going to want to go there...but then I thought that about the Skins a while back and they managed to get Gibbs and Shanahan, which is some pretty good pedigree, so what do I know.

Wow. I just came back and read this in the morning, sober. Yep. Still feel the same way. Now, to respond to your quoted post.

You could think that. You could think that it would be a forgone conclusion that if they are lame ducking a coach who did as well as could be expected given the circumstances, they would have to have someone lined up.

But that completely takes the knowledge of the current regimes past and throws it out the window.

They got rid of TRich, with no clear backup plan in mind. And when it went wrong, they've pinned it on the head coach
They made zero moves as the sucktitude of Weeden, and the injuries to their QB's started piling up until late in the season.
They made zero moves to try and improve the team with existing free agents during the season, when there were players out there who would have at least improved the "backups"


You are right though. NO ONE IN THEIR RIGHT MIND is going to want to come to Cleveland. I mean, who wants to come to a job, where your boss can fuck you as hard as the browns front office fucked chud all season long, and then pin the shit season on him? Are we going to put Bernie Kosar's drunk, concussed ass on the sideline as a coach?
