Browns Post-Game Notes
Barry McBride on December 26th, 2010 AT 7:11 PM

CLEVELAND BROWNS POST GAME NOTES 12-26-10

  • On his first career passing attempt, wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi connected with wide receiver Brian Robiskie for a 29-yard touchdown. The play marked the first touchdown pass by a non-quarterback for the Browns since 2002, when wide receiver Kevin Johnson found wide receiver Quincy Morgan for a 33-yard score against Kansas City on September 8. It was the seventh time in team history that a wide receiver has thrown a touchdown pass for the Browns.
  • Robiskie hauled in two passes for 35 yards with a touchdown. Over the last two games, he has totaled seven receptions for 117 yards with two touchdowns.
  • Rookie defensive back Joe Haden recorded his team-leading sixth interception of the season. His six interceptions are the most by a Brown since Leigh Bodden recorded six in 2007 and the most by a Browns rookie since Anthony Henry notched 10 in 2001.  Haden is now tied with Ken Gorgal and Bert Rechicar for the fourth most in a single-season by a Browns rookie.
  • Haden also notched his first career sack and forced fumble while adding five tackles.
  • Cleveland has shut out its opponent in the first quarter of each of the last four games as the Browns have allowed a league-low 26 first quarter points all season. Cleveland has outscored its opponents 77-26 in the opening frame this year.
  • Rookie defensive back T.J. Ward recorded two tackles and leads the club with 98 on the season. The last rookie to lead the Browns in tackles was linebacker Wali Rainer in 1999.
  • Ward also leads the club with 18 special teams tackles. No player has led the Browns in both defensive and special teams tackles since their return in 1999.
  • With one reception today, running back Peyton Hillis has recorded 60 this season, which ranks as the sixth-most in a single-season by a Browns running back. Greg Pruitt holds the team record for catches by a running back with 65 set in 1981.
  • The Browns were called for two penalties today and have registered just 36 in their last 10 contests (3.6 average).
  • With three punts today, Reggie Hodges registered two inside the 20 yard line with no touchbacks. He has 29 punts inside the 20 this season and over the last 10 games, he has totaled 21 punts with no touchbacks. His last touchback came in Week 5 against Atlanta on October 10.
  • Rookie defensive lineman Travis Ivey made his NFL debut starting at left end.
  • Defensive back Sheldon Brown has appeared in all 143 regular season games in his career, which began with Philadelphia in 2002. His streak is the second-longest among all active defensive backs, trailing only Tampa Bay’s Ronde Barber.
  • Offensive lineman Joe Thomas has started all 63 career games at left tackle and has not missed an offensive snap since joining the Browns as the third overall pick in the 2007 draft.

It’s over. Ratbirds gifted with 17 pts, win 20-10. Browns now 5-10, @ReasonsImADrunk drinks, @NotEricMangini considers new Twitter handle

@ReasonsImADrunk My advice to you is to begin drinking very, very heavily.

For those of you still pondering the outcome of the Browns-Ratbirds, there’s 1:56 left and the Ravens have the ball at the Browns 45. Sorry.

@Griz33 Our curse? There’s probably witchcraft involved. I suggest finding and testing probable witches until we can find one that floats.


12/26
3:34 PM

Ed Reed picks McCoy, runs it out of the end zone (dumb), laterals to no one (dumb), Ratbirds recover (lucky). Rat ball at the 29.


12/26
3:30 PM

@johndgarden Strange clock management has been an issue on the Browns for a while. Rememebr Detroit last year? Has to improve.


12/26
3:29 PM

Browns moving the ball on the Ravens again. Now at the Baltimore 33, with 4:55 left. Ravens call timeout.


12/26
3:22 PM

Derrick Mason was hurt on the Ravens last possession, and now Ben Watson is getting trainer attention for the Browns. 9:00 left.

@Dave_Collins19 I think the wind is tormenting him a bit, but I agree with your assessment. McCoy is getting an education today.

Flacco sacked by Haden on third and six. Fumble goes out of bounds, of course. Browns ball at their 6 with 9:36 left. RATBIRDS 20, BROWNS 10

@Dave_Collins19 I’m thinking more of the long pass to Robo and that questionable call. The numbers are what they are, I guess.

Third quarter ends with the Ravens leading 20-10. Don’t think the Steelers or Patriots have much to worry about in the playoffs.

Flacco tries to throw long to Boldin, which doesn’t work again Joe Haden. It’s picked by Joe Haden at the Baltimore 41. 4:24 3Q

Ratbird ball at their 24, leading by ten, 5:11 left in the third. Robiskie had the ball to the Ravens 20 before the push-off call. Deadly.

Browns drive wiped out on a pretty weak call on Robiskie for pass interference, followed up by more penalties, pain, and doom.

Following their onside kick misadventure, Browns move the ball near mid-field but have to punt. Ravens ball at their 16, 11:39 3Q

Ouch!! @FSOhioZJackson Again, the events of the last 12 years have been no accident


12/26
2:37 PM

Ravens were fooled by the onside kick, but it just didn’t go far enough. This one’s on Dawson, IMHO, as much as people will rip Mangini.


12/26
2:36 PM

Bad onside kick gives the Ravens the ball at the Browns 38. 22-yard TD pass to Mason follows shortly thereafter. RATS 20, BROWNS 10 13:30 3Q

@iHateJJRedick @ThreeRiversBlog After losing to the Bills and Bengals, it’s nice to find a team we can move the ball against, though.


12/26

After the MoMass fumble, Rats run twice and then hit Houshmanzadeh for a 15-yard TD. RATBIRDS 10, BROWNS 7 11:47 2Q

McCoy’s first pass to MoMass on this drive is complete, but fumbled. McClain recovers and runs it back to the Browns 20. First down Ravens.

Browns keep the Ravens out of the end zone, they settle for a 27-yard field goal. BROWNS 7, RAVENS 3, 13:35 2Q

Lawrence Vickers and Ray Lewis were jawing at midfield during stretches. I don’t think they were exchanging “Merry Christmases”

@Southrnbuckeye Hope you’re right! Our run defense will have to play a lot better to get that result.


12/26
12:15 PM

No. Egads. Only positive is that the Browns tend to play to the competition. RT @ThreeRiversBlog @TheOBR you feelin good about this today?

Also, some little touches made to the field. 20 & 50 yards lines outlined in brown, numbers outlined in orange.

@thesteelersnat I suspect our unity won’t last much longer than 4PM or, based on how the Browns have been playing, around 2PM.
