Perhaps because he watched last night as his beloved Cleveland Browns took a pasting from the Pittsburgh Steelers on national TV, 34-21, in a game that never even looked close, and certainly not as close as the final score indicates. Instead of facing the Steelers' daunting and nearly-unbeaten QB, Big Ben Roethlisberger, they got beat by Charlie Batch and Turnover Tommy Maddox. Instead of facing the powerful running-back duo of Willie Parker and Jerome Bettis, the Browns faced Duce Staley, just coming back from a long-term injury, and Verron Haynes.
The result of the second- and third-string Steelers against the browns' first squad? 159 yards rushing, 382 overall yards in offense, and no turnovers -- although Maddox came close twice.
I suppose Hugh watched Rome instead last night -- it was a great episode, too. I think I'd take the 13th over the Browns, too, even with the points, especially if Pullo's healthy and Vorenus is under center.Sphere It View blog reactions
