So lemme get this straight....

Charlie Frye sucks so bad that they have to trade him for a 6th round pick after one terrible half.... so they can hand the keys to the guy who couldn't beat out Charlie Frye in training camp.

My confidence in management is skyrocketing...

Rock on Browns, rock on. How crazy can it get in Berea? Crennel looks lost, Savage seems to have his head up his ass, the defense is,..is hopeless. Hey, I know, trade Charlie Frye, it's all his fault. The team plays like they've never seen a footabll before. Unbelievable!!! The Dallas Cowboys are in for a treat in next years draft.

The Browns can't be as bad as they showed against Pittsburgh. They can't be. This is the same team that outplayed the starters of the Broncos and Bears in the preaseason.

I think it's a case of mental baggage. The losing culture is so firmly entrenched that all it takes is one or two miscues in the first quarter and the game becomes a runaway freight train.

But I wouldn't blame any Browns player right now for not having a lot of confidence in coaching or management. This is a team led by a coach who couldn't even decide whether Dave Zastudil would be healthy enough to punt until Saturday, then had to hastily sign a backup who predictably muffed his first attempt.

Romeo's excuse was "I wanted to give Zastudil every chance to help the team." That, to me, is vintage Romeo. Passive as all get-out. He'll let the players tell him if they're healthy enough to play. He'll let a coin decide who is starting at QB.

I don't know what that is, but it's not coaching. Romeo seems to have a bit of a problem being the guy who has to make the final, authoritative decision on something.

ya, I don't think they are as bad as they looked against the Steelers... but I've lost all faith in Romeo (and Savage to a certain extent).

The whole punting situation was absolutely terrible and it isn't exactly surprising that it blew up in their face.
