Default Anyone else worried about losing to the Browns in the playoffs

I live in Ohio and the band wagon jumpers are coming out of the wood work. I would never hear the end of it if this happened. I haven't talked one bit of trash (it always brings me bad luck) for the past 9 wins in a row but that won't make a difference. The defense really needs to get some things sorted out quick in my opinion otherwise it will be an early exit.

Just remind them that their last championship team was before the SB era.

first of all.....love the nickname!

every game is worrisome, but the brownies D has made almost no improvements at all this season( their shutout on sunday was against the bills and on a snowstorm even the browns almost couldn't score) and we have to hope our D gets their game together. if our D is fine game against them should be no problem, if not.....that game would become a shootout.

above all.....have hope!

I have to admit that I don't like the premise of having to beat a team 3 times in the same season.

But I'm really replying to say GREAT NAME! LOL!

Yes.

It's next to impossible to beat a good team three times in the same season.

I would rather try to beat a team we are better than 3 times than play a team which outplayed us. Jags are better than the Browns. We seem to score at will against teams with weak defenses. Jags have a solid d, and there o -line controlled as well. Browns one dimensional. We will beat them again unless Cribbs has a huge day and or Steelers turn the ball over. Knock on wood we have been very good at not turning the ball over this year. I think we are capable of beating any team right now except the Pats. Unfortunately we are also capable of losing to just about any team as well. We need huge adjustments in order to stop Brady, Moss , and Welker.

I think having Najeh in at RB instead of Parker makes Pittsburgh a better offense right now. That might help beat a team like Jacksonville that loves to run ball control offense with their two headed monster at RB. If Pittsburgh can get Gary Russell going as well, it would make for a very interesting game.

Judging that I'm not sure which team is going to show up week in and week out, yes I'm worried. IMO, this is an above average football team at best.

STs stink.

O-line stinks.

Defensive unit as a whole does not appear to be the #1 ranked in the league.

Backfield has taken a hit. Yeah, Najeh did well against the Rams........against the Rams.

IMO, I think it's safe to hit the panic button at this point in the season. It's not September 30 and we are coming off a loss to the Cardinals. It's not going to be easy, but you never know come playoff time.
