Game Preview Thing
My cluelessness on these type of things has been well-documented, so I won't bore you with explaining it again here.
I think that the Bengals will do better than last week, but will still struggle due to an ineffective passing game. Gus isn't the answer, and Michael Westbrook won't make the impact the Bengals want until mid-season.
The whole thing comes down to two factors:
1. Will the Browns stop Corey Dillon? DUH. Every Browns Bengals game comes down to this. DUH. This is why I'm not paid to be a sportswriter. I expect that Dillon will get 100 yards, but just barely, and the Browns will stuff the Bengals passing attack.
2. Keeping Kelly off his backside. The reconstituted offensive line will have to endure a series of blitzes that the Bengals will throw at them, and Verba will have to slow down Justin Smith. I'm expecting five sacks and two interceptions for Holcomb in the midst of the difficulties. If Green can get back some of his burst, and White sees enough playing time, Holcomb can do better. If the Browns repeat last weeks poor rushing performance, Holcomb is going to get slapped around.
The bottom line: Two teams fighting for the right to be considered mediocre. The Browns have more talent and better coaching and should be able to dodge the fickle finger of foolishness this week. Browns 30, Bengals 17.
You know now what won't happen. Let's go make some freaking noise.
The Browns urge fans to come to the stadium early to allow for the confiscations of the weapons and little booze bottles you people are sure to bring.
The following items are not permitted in Cleveland Browns Stadium:
