The Almighty Press Clippings

 

     OK, so everyone got a little carried away going into the Rams game.  We were looking past St. Louis at the Media Level, Player Level and the Fan Level, and we got burned.  The guys on the other side of the ball get paid just like our guys do, but we tried to sleepwalk through the game, not finishing plays, much less drives!  We turned it on in the 4th quarter, with 10 points to take the lead, but when you walk the razor’s edge like that, eventually you will fall off.  Rookie Donnie Avery’s catch (and it WAS a good one) on an under-thrown pass beat Lee Torrence and set up the field goal that got us to where we are today.

 

     And where exactly is that?  4- 2 after our Division road schedule is done, and still right in the hunt for the NFC East crown.  This game does not change a thing!  The Eagles won in San Francisco, but with the Cowboys’ delicious loss in the desert, and the Giants’ Monday Night embarrassment, we are still basically in the driver’s seat, given our schedule.

 

     That road continues this Sunday with a rare visit from the Cleveland Browns.  From 1950 through 1966, we battled them twice a year, but since then it’s been a rarity, with the last contest being a 2004 loss in Ohio.  They are coming off a rout of the Giants on National TV, so they will be a formidable opponent.  They are a little dinged up, with Kellen Winslow less than a 100% if he plays at all, and Derek Anderson still feeling his way back after his early season failings.  Braylon Edwards and Donte Stallworth are a dangerous pair at the Wide Out spot, and Jamal Lewis is a load to bring down, but if our guys are nothing else, they WILL BE FOCUSED!  

 

     Ladell Betts should only be out a couple of weeks with a sprained knee, but the signing of former NFL MVP Shaun Alexander will give us another horse to run at the line.  Reed Doughty was placed on IR with a back problem, and Durant Brooks was let go after his good practice punting couldn’t quite carry over to gameday.  Mr. Tupa was not answering his phone, so Coach Zorn brought in some of his Seattle guys that will be able to slide right in and contribute --  so welcome Mike Green and some guy named Plackemeier . . . put that one on a jersey, Chad!
