Browns-Bengals: Gameballs and Goats

No offense and losses to bad teams = Boredom, disgust, and low GBG totals...

SUMMARY: Lowest participation of the year for Gameballs and Goats, which is partially a reflection of how quickly the voting booth rolled off the front page... but... it's also an indication that boredom and disgust set in after the Browns lost their second straight game to a woeful opponent. With the holidays approaching, fans are tuning out the Browns.

Fan Gameball Comments
dp10451 Good game by McCoy, Watson, and Robiskie. They earned gameballs.
NOT MUCH TO SAY HERE EXCEPT THAT EVERYONE IS PLAYING FOR THEIR JOBS EITHER HERE IN CLEVELAND OR SOMEWHERE ELSE.

GAME BALLS TO THE FANS FOR THEIR ENDURING THIS SEEMINGLY NEVER ENDING CYCLE OF FUTILITY.

CHRISTMAS!!!
GertBFrobe McCoy is a keeper! Great game today buddy. You and Watson were the only bright spots today.
houndfromhell The strongest team won today. The Browns offensive and defensive lines are the weakest in the N.F.L. They will
not win again this year, and MUST draft
and pick up linemen for both lines, before they will win a game again.
bob feller r.i.p
McCoy to Robiskie was a nice play. Unfortunately, there were far too few this afternoon.
SBinmylifetime Not bad Colt for your 1st game back...QB rating should be over 100 (all for nothing, of course). Robiskie and Royal, good job making some tough catches that we haven't seen much from you this season. Ben Watson, solid as usual.
The haters need to get off him and realize alot has to do with the offense and QB.
TpostDawg Offense did enough to win.
BulldogDad McCoy's emergence as potentially the real deal is huge for this franchise, allowing us to go after a blue-chip WR, DL, or LB in the 1st round of the draft. Hodges is the team's MVP this year after Hillis. It was nice to see Robiskie contribute.
DixieDawg Thank God for bourbon.
froggy60 Brian congrats on a TD

Colt stay the course

Peyton keep running hard
Browns need a number 1 WR, a big threat guy. Massaquoi and Robiskie would both benefit from it. Watson and Evan Moore are servicable TE, but would look even better with a down field threat.
TomahawkDAWG Colt - despite the crap sandwich he was fed, he still looked well and continues to give us hope.
Reggie - Best punter in the AFC this year IMO; he SHOULD be a pro-bowler.
Phil - solid day. too bad you didn't get more chances.
Robo - 'bout time you showed up son.
djw333 If Colt doesn't play that game, we lose 31-3.
McCoy played well!
I have no response to that.
CZARAYN It's an insult to ask us to give a gameball to someone; no one deserves it.
Mayfield Road Boy
Have to give Robo one because he may never get another chance.
Aqib McCoy had a good game and has iced his status as the QB for next year.

Brian Robiskie gets a game ball becasue he surpassed me on the all-time scoring list. Granted I am not on the team but hey I am reaching here.

Mangini Haters get a ball for being right and enduring the abuse from the idiots who supported him.
watson deserves pro bowl recognition,royal made a great catch today,and i think robo can be a solid wr in the nfl.
IkoIko Lack of depth on the DL is killing us. Rubin is out of gas. Next two games will be ugly.

He could hold himself, (from making a play)
LEOTRUCKER extremely tired of playing not to lose - goodbye Eric -
dp10451 I can't believe the defense turned in a performance like this for the second week in a row. They owe the fans more. Two weeks in a row? This is on Ryan. He couldn't figure out Cinci and it was reflected in the defensive game. When will we line up and knock somebody on their ass? Daboll still sucks, even with a good Qb.

HERE IS A LIST OF MORE DESERVING PATRONS TO THE GOATHORN LIST

TV ANNOUNCERS

BOOMER ESAIASON AND THE REST OF THE RETARDS ON TV BUTHCERING THE NAMES OR TEAMS DURING THEIR TELECASTS

COACHING STAFF FOR THINKING ERIC WRIGHT CAN STILL PLAY. DID ANYONE NOTICE HOW FAR OUT OF POSITION HE WAS ON THE TD RUN FOR CICNI'S 1ST SCORE

LOSING BACK TO BACK WEEKS TO 2 WIN TEAMS. THAT HAS GOT TO BE A RECORD IN FUTILITY - EVEN FOR THE BROWNS.

NFL FOR GIVING PREFERENCE TO 15 YARD PENALTIES OVER A 5/10 YARD PENALTY AND ALLOWING THEM TO OFFSET

JOSH CRIBBS 4 HURT TOES. HE STILL ISNT THE SAME WITH HIS ACHING PIGGIES.

NOT BEING ABLE TO SWITCH TO ANOTHER GAME ON THE OTHER CHANNEL DURING BROWNS' TURD GAMES

BIG TEN LEADERS & LEGENDS

MY WIFE FOR STAYING WITH ME & MY GIRLFRIEND THAT LEFT ME.

FANTASY FOOTBALL PLAYOFF INJURIES COSTING ME - ESPECIALLY AARON RODGERS.

PEOPLE ROOTING FOR DOG KILLERS AND RAPIST QB'S; DRUNK DRIVING MURDERING WR'S; AND MURDERING AND/OR LYING TO THE POLICE LB'S.

HAVING THESE 2 TURD GAMES TASTE IN MY MOUTH FOR X-MAS
GertBFrobe Blow it up! This coaching staff sucks ASS! Rob Ryan is a BUM! Good riddance Mangina, don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out!
houndfromhell Entire team is in regression. Physically weak at the Offensive and Defensive lines. Joe Thomas is WAY overrated.Gets bitch slapped by any free agent defensive linemen he faces.He plays scared, might hurt his fishing hand.
The defensive line are even worse, how Manginni got any wins at all this year is amazing. This club is 1 or 2 win team at best.
The worst part, after Manginni is fired, the new coach will replace ALL the talent we got, because they wont fit in his system. You never thought the Browns were going to be more than an expansion club, did you?The owner gets his Millions win or suck.
Josh Cribbs will be traded for a 4th rounder at best. Hillis wont fit the next offense, so he`s traded for a 4th and 6th. Hardesty will never play a regular season down in the N.F.L.All this crap, and the fans will still watch
and die with this team, which is too bad
they cant see what everyone else sees.
The sport is fixed, send the Patriots team to Cleveland, and they will not win a single game. Face it. Cleveland
will never be a sexy pick. They only keep us around to collect all our money.
First the Browns make the young Buffalo QB (from Harvard, of all places) look like Otto Graham. Then, today, they make #32 of the Bungles look like the guy who used to wear #32 for the Browns. What an unbelievably disgusting performance. And for all the Rob Ryan fans out there: To give a 2-11 team almost 500 yards of offense and let them control the ball for 38 minutes (not to mention 190 yards on the ground), this dude can keep cracking wise at his Friday pressers. He's a phony and y'all are buyin' his b.s. Please! Belichik has more young players on defense than this dude and is kicking butt. Time to get some REAL coaching talent in here and get rid of some of these "great" players like Eric Wright and Shaun Rogers, etc. Soon the Browns can begin plannig for their 47th consecutive rebuilding year. It started with that numb nuts Art Modell and continues unabated. Sickening!
when the bad teams of the nfl need a slumpbuster call on the browns it is very bad to drink joboos rum it is very bad
The outcome of the game felt inevitable: A game we should have won against a team that has completely imploded, yet we still manage to lay an egg. Unbelievable.
SBinmylifetime Defense made Bengals offense look like Patriots and couldn't come close to stopping the run. Daboll, what the hell was that mess right before the half...embarrassing! Entire organization-it's cruel to tease your fans with signs that we're actually going somewhere with some strong performances only to totally regress and prove, with consecutive losses to teams with a combined 4 wins, that you're the same hot mess we're all too accustomed to seeing since 1999!
whoever is in charge of keeping track of time and deciding when to take a time out should be taking remidial time keeping. I defy ANYONE to explain the last 2 minutes of the 1st half to me and why on Earth a time out wasn't taken on the original 4th down play.
Walldog This team needs lots of help in the trenches on both sides of the ball.Couldn't block my grandma& couldn't stop my grandma. :>(
How can Daboll show such promise on an opening drive and then revert to the usual inconsistent and ineffective play calling. Sorry bub, time to hit the road and get a real OC.
Mangini needs to learn to motive teams when playing weaker teams and learn to cut ties with friends that are coordinators.

Daboll is just plain sorry as an OC.

Ryan's scheme the last two games has been terrible and since when can't we stop the run? Proper tackling technique is needed once again as there was a lot if shoulder hitting and just trying to strip the ball instead of wrapping up.
TpostDawg Defense continues to fail to STOP the run.
Entire Defense gets two Goat Horns for this one,
roscoe2009 Bye Mangini,Daboll and Ryan and don't let the door hit you in the ass.All three of you,poor game planning and then no halftime adjustment's.We aren't that close to having a good team, on offense we need 2 lineman, backup running back and a couple of receiver's.Defense is terrible (keeper's are)Fujita,Haden,Rubin and Ward replace the rest.
EMBARR*ASS*ING
BulldogDad The "bend but don't break" thing doesn't translate into victories: our front seven got manhandled. Josh Cribbs is not the same player this season: if he's hurt, let him heal, as he's not the difference-maker he was in the past. St. Clair is simply awful, a huge gaping sucking talent hole in the offense.
DixieDawg Pathetic.
froggy60 Brian you just need to go.....

Eric step and take control or leave

rob you were out coached and they just ran the ball.......
This stay with the game plan dont get excited is bull..
Offensive play calling was creative during the Saints and Patriots games, but for the Bills and Bengals it was vanilla and easy to defend. Cribbs has looked slow all year, well before his injury (no wild cat, no electric returns, no impact as a WR). Looks as if the big payday dulled his edge.
TomahawkDAWG Defense - Really?
Daboll - Your offense is more vanilla than any I have ever seen. So predictable.
JSC - Turnstile, son! You are the worst OL I have seen in quite some time. I can't believe you get payed to suck the way you do.
OL - as a whole, you have all started sucking...nothing changed in this game.
The Growing Pains are hard to swallow
Please get the draft "right"
Turn the club around
idiot mangini.
idiot blowhard ryan.
anyone dumb enough to watch this team.
anyone dumb enough to listen to this team.
idiot moron dumb-azz.

peewee football gameplan.

cbrowns44 We couldnt stop Ohio State at this point.
St.Clair is the worst player I have seen in a long time!
CZARAYN The entire coaching staff and the lack-luster attitude that pervades the Browns. We all thought is was Crennel and his staff, but the same attitude persists after 2 years of Mangini and Co. And when I look at what Crennel and the much-maligned Charlie Weiss are doing in KC,I'm beginning to believe there is a problem more serious than coaching in Cleveland...remember, the fish rots from the head.
Mayfield Road Boy
Oops. I wrote previously on Gameballs. Given how this team plays you should reverse the columns so Goats come first, because that is all we are thinking about when we vote.
schafrath Worst announcer...ever.. and what was with the frog in his throat?
I love Phil Dawson but he has to go or kick the ball past the 15 yardline.
How can the Browns start at the Bengal 40 yd line with 2:00 minutes to go and end up PUNTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!WTF????
mtsames The defense was exposed to what they really are, slow,stiff, and stupid. This whole team is an embarrassment. Better be prepared for the Ratbirds.
Aqib Mangini gets a goat for continuing to be a flat out bad NFL Head Coach.

Randy Lerner gets a goat for hiring him.

Mangini Defenders get a goat for just being stupid.
i like cribbs but he needs to go to ir to heal his toe injury.Mangini and Daboll should walk home from cincy.
