Yes-I want revenge in this one! That game last year was as dull as can be, and im hoping with a victory that it spins us in the opposite direction and out of this downward spiral! Then again I hope this downward spiral does'nt continue. Now we know that the weather is'nt looking that great for this one and that Trent so far has never played well at all in bad weather(he has'nt played all that good lately in good weather)-Im hoping he throws for 5 Touchdowns and looks like a star out there but im not betting on it. The Browns are also well rested since they played their last game the previous thursday and had sunday to sit back and watch us!(bad memories) And do not be fooled by their record-this team has a new quarterback that could jump start this high powered offense that was predicted to be one of the best in the game after their surge last season!
Last week against the Broncos, the Browns did look good and I know they gave up a fair amount of points along with 449 yards through the air and Eddie Royal burned them deep for a 93 yard TD reception so Lee Evans should be looking to do the same, But most teams do give up their share of points to the Broncos pass happy offense, The Browns defensive scheme is based out of the 3-4 defense which has lately been our achilles heal, and hopefully this week our coaching staff has finally put together a different game plan than the prior 3 weeks to combat it!(congratulations guys-it's about time)
We need to look out for D'Qwell Jackson-he's the most fiery playmaker they have on that defense and currently leads the league in tackles! Shaun Rogers is also quietly having a very productive season clogging the running lanes with 47 tackles and 4 sacks. At corner 2nd year player Eric Wright is leading the way with 3 interceptions and has returned one back for 94 yards-so we know if he gets his hands on it he can go the distance, and scouring the middle will be underrated safety Brodney Pool who can hit-and create turnovers with his instincts in coverage. Their biggest threat as a pure pass rusher is Kamerion Wimbley who has not had a good season thus far getting to the quarterback but has applied pressure all season(remind you of someone we miss?)-and had a sack last week against the broncos. Overall the Browns defense has created turnovers and has a plus 4 difference in turnover ratio to their opponents, but we should be able to put up a lot of yards on these guys and move the chains since their Defense yields the 27th most yards allowed in the league and does not have any particular strong point. WE CAN MOVE THE CHAINS and better consistently against this Defense!!
We all know about Josh Cribbs and their return game being very dangerous so enough said-Lets get him down quick and keep him and the field position contained!
On offense it will be a bit of a mystery as Brady Quinn has taken over and only had one start so we don't have much film on him to know his tendencies other than from last thursday night and in college, we do know that he was very good in his first start and did'nt make any mistakes, he threw for 2 TD's and was very accurate and would have looked better had it not been for some bad hands by Kellen Winslow and dropped balls. Now overall they're loaded at the skill positions with Braylon Edwards, Winslow and even more so that Donte Stallworth is now healed up and starting-we know he is one of the best run after catch recievers in the league so lets hit him hard and quick! Jamal Lewis had a very good game against us last year and we know what to expect from him and having snow on the forecast only caters to his smashmouth style-(Jamal Lewis I'd like to introduce you to Marcus Stroud and Paul Posluzny. Other than that we know that the left side of their O-Line is very good with 2nd year player-3rd overall pick and probowler Joe Thomas, and also Eric Steinbach(who we should have signed in free agency instead of Dockery for the same amount of money)There O-line unit as a whole has ONLY GIVEN UP 11 SACKS on the season .
I can't wait untill monday night-even though I wont be at the game I can still get a feel of the atmosphere and it's a rush under the lights of that big national stage!
Go Bills-Fam1ly F1rst!
