One more week at least! I was looking through some Browns forums and this quote made me laugh more than anything else:

"The Steelers just piss me off to no end, they start the year losing every game, but once again here they are playing for a playoff spot, so I would live for the Browns to stop them from playing anymore games this year."

:rofl: Their fans are mostly in agreement though that a loss to the Steelers would be better for the team and the draft position.

here's another good one:

"There is not much of a rivalry left anymore. It's a traditional beat down of the expansion team by the Steelers. I would like to see all references to the current Cleveland team prefixed with "expansion" so there is no association with and no sullying of the great Cleveland Browns prior to the 1996 move. Yes, it has gotten that bad."

"it really doesn't matter if we see this team get owned again. It's actually what we should all be expecting."

in a thread asking what a browns fan would pay to see a win against the Steelers. It's kind of sad.

The Pittsburgh Steelers may find out before they exit the field Sunday that they're no longer in playoff contention, but it's somewhat remarkable that they even head into Week 17 with a chance.

Though they'll need plenty of help, the Steelers will try to do their part in becoming only the second team in NFL history to start 0-4 and reach the postseason as they look for a 10th consecutive home win over the Cleveland Browns.

Pittsburgh (7-8) was left for dead after going 0-for-September and again after back-to-back losses to fellow AFC playoff contenders Baltimore and Miami dropped it to 5-8, but the Steelers still have a chance to earn the conference's No. 6 seed.

They'd be bucking a serious historical trend to do so. Of the 185 teams in league history to lose their first four games, only the 1992 San Diego Chargers turned it around to qualify for the postseason.

That team, however, won 11 of its final 12 games, while the Steelers are just trying to make the playoffs as a .500 team. They'll need to beat the Browns and have both the Ravens and Dolphins lose in the NFL's Week 17 early slate, then hope a Kansas City team that may rest some starters can beat San Diego in the late afternoon.

"Isn't that crazy?" defensive end Brett Keisel said of Pittsburgh's improbable scenario. "We still are breathing and we're going to continue to fight. We've got one more that we've got to win to even have a shot and that will be our focus."

After years of riding their dominant defense, the Steelers have stayed alive in 2013 thanks to a productive offense. Pittsburgh has topped 30 points in consecutive games for the first time since 2007 after last week's 38-31 win in Green Bay, and their 29.3-point average since Week 9 ranks fifth in the league.

Ben Roethlisberger has thrown 14 touchdowns and two interceptions in the past six weeks, and his protection has made a big difference. He's been sacked six times in that stretch, compared to 35 in Pittsburgh's first nine games.

"This team just keeps fighting," said rookie Le'Veon Bell, whose 124-yard rushing effort against the Packers was his first time in triple digits. "We faltered a bit at the beginning of the season, but guys are really fighting, trying to get into the playoffs."

Cleveland safety T.J. Ward wants nothing more than to make sure that doesn't happen.

"I hate to sound malicious, but it'd help to put them where we are, out of the playoffs," Ward told the Browns' official website. "We don't want to see them succeed. It'll be good, anytime you can knock somebody out of the playoffs."

The Steelers haven't had to fight particularly hard in the past decade when they've hosted the Browns (4-11). They haven't lost at home to Cleveland since Roethlisberger came into the league, winning by an average of more than two touchdowns.

Roethlisberger is 16-1 versus the Browns and has started eight of Pittsburgh's nine straight home wins against them, averaging 9.86 yards per attempt and posting a 109.1 passer rating. Cleveland has had six different starters in that stretch, going for 6.02 yards per throw with a 65.2 QB rating.

Jason Campbell will push that number to seven, and he'll hope for a better finish after being knocked out of a 27-11 home loss to the Steelers on Nov. 24 due to a concussion suffered on a third-quarter strip sack by cornerback William Gay.

The bright spot for the Browns in that defeat was the performance of Josh Gordon, who had 14 catches for 237 yards -- 166 of which came once Brandon Weeden relieved Campbell.

That was the first of Gordon's consecutive 200-yard receiving performances. He's had 813 yards in the past five weeks -- 290 more than any other receiver in the NFL -- with a stunning 479 coming after the catch.

But after blowing a 10-0 lead in a 24-13 loss to the Jets in Week 16, the Browns are headed for their sixth consecutive finish at either 4-12 or 5-11 -- something that's hard for their players to swallow after a 3-2 start.

"We still have one more game, and I don't want to end my season like this," defensive back Joe Haden said. "I don't think anybody in this locker room would. The team that we have and the players that we have, I would never have expected it to be like this.

"... It's got to change. This is not good enough."

Haden is questionable Sunday with a hip injury, as is Jordan Cameron (concussion), who leads all AFC tight ends in receiving yards with 848. Cameron was held to three receptions for 32 yards against Pittsburgh last month.

The Steelers' second-leading receiver also may not play. Emmanuel Sanders, who has caught a touchdown pass in four of the past five weeks, suffered a knee injury against Green Bay.

Here's a nice opinion on there 1st round pick this year (#6 overall):

"Two big problems with Mingo:

1) he's a one trick pony as a pass rusher and everyone knows it and stops him.
2) he cannot play the run at all which means he will likely never be a full time player.

Conclusion: Collosal BUST."

Game 16 matchup: Steelers vs. Browns

December 28, 2013 9:59 PM
By Gerry Dulac / Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
When the Browns have the ball: The Browns have averaged 24.5 points in their past four games after scoring fewer than 20 in five of their previous six. Jason Campbell -- their third starting QB this season -- is 1-6. Campbell is completing 56.9 percent of his attempts and does not have many playmakers, other than WR Josh Gordon (NFL-best 1,564 yards). TE Jordan Cameron has 75 catches and seven touchdowns, but he missed last week's game with a concussion and is questionable. While the early-season trade of RB Trent Richardson appeared to make sense, the reality is the Browns have no running game. Their new starter is Edwin Baker, who was signed off Houston's practice squad. Baker has two of the Browns' four rushing touchdowns, which measure 1, 1, 2 and 5 yards. The Steelers, meantime, have allowed 18 rushing touchdowns, their most since 1988. The Browns can't blame their offensive line: Pro Bowl LT Joe Thomas, C Alex Mack and RT Mitchell Schwartz have played every snap.
When the Steelers have the ball: The Browns have not only been wilting late in the season, they are wilting in games. They blew fourth-quarter leads to the Jaguars, Patriots and Bears by allowing eight scores (six TDs, two FGs) on nine fourth-quarter possessions. What's more, they allow opponents to convert 44.8 percent of third downs, worst in the AFC. The Browns were planning on more pressure with new defensive coordinator Ray Horton, but they are just one sack ahead of last year's pace (39). Two of their biggest offseason additions -- free-agent OLB Paul Kruger and rookie No. 1 Barkevious Mingo -- have not been as productive as hoped. The Steelers are coming off their best rushing performance of the season in Green Bay (152 yards). CB Joe Haden (hip pointer) played against the Jets but is questionable for the game. If he can't play, rookie third-round choice Leon McFadden will start.
Keep an eye on: NT Phil Taylor ... Their 2011 No. 1 draft choice is one of the reasons the Browns have been stout against the run. But Taylor, who played at Penn State before transferring to Baylor, comes out of the game in a lot of second- and third-down passing situations and teams have exploited his absence. In the past two games, the Browns have allowed 387 yards rushing -- 179 to the Bears and 208 to the Jets. Prior to that, the Browns didn't allow more than 155 yards in any game.
Intangibles: This is the 122nd meeting between the teams. ... The Browns have lost six in a row and nine of their past 10 after a 3-2 start. It is the sixth consecutive season in which they have lost at least 11 games. ... The Steelers have won two in a row and five of their past seven games. ... The Steelers are 25-5 against the Browns since they re-entered the league in 1999. The Browns have not won at Heinz Field since 2003. The Steelers won the first meeting of this season 27-11, in Cleveland Nov. 24. ... This is the fourth consecutive season the teams have played in the season finale. ... The Steelers have won five consecutive season finales.
To win, the Browns must ...
1. Pen Ben. Roethlisberger is 16-1 lifetime against the Browns and has thrown 14 TDs in the past seven meetings.
2. Get Browns on Brown. If Haden can't play, Leon McFadden or Buster Skrine will have to contain Steelers MVP Antonio Brown.
3. Not have gaffes at the half. They have allowed a score at the end of the first half in eight of the past nine games leading to their meltdowns.
To win, the Steelers must ...
1. Flush Gordon. Browns receiver Josh Gordon has six touchdown catches of 37 yards or longer and had 14 catches for 237 yards in the first meeting.
2. Go to town on the Browns. The Steelers are averaging 30 points in their past six games and are coming off their highest scoring output in two seasons.
3. Don't dread the red. The Browns allow opponents to score touchdowns inside the red zone 65.2 percent of the time, second highest conversion rate in the AFC.

I didn't realize he was out. Questionable though means to me the player most likely won't be playing. You know what this means:

Chris Carter. Ugh. Or they stick with Sylvester as an outside backer. He was better than Carter last game.

I hate hate hate to be this guy, but Mingo is going to be a stud for Cleveland for a long time. And that makes me sad.

But more importantly, which plug of a Quarterback is starting today? Fuck, maybe they can rotate. While they're rotating, just put all 11 guys on Jordan Cameron and Josh Gordon and their offense won't be able to move the ball.

Could have been a better throw, but that's what NFL receivers do. They know where they are on the field, and they sell out to make a play. :noidea:
