I think we need to get back to run, run, 3rd and long and punt. The Arians way.

QFT. The Steelers have to go up against Brady, Brees, Sanchez, Flacco again, and McCoy again. Our secondary has long been the Ds downfall and it has been masked by the great pass rush. The pass rush is lacking this year and the secondary is getting exposed. Probably would have won the Ravens game if we had a secondary that was worth anything.

yeah, it can't be that McCoy has any promise, its that our D is bad, so awesome that you utterly fail to give the other team and professional players any credit whatsoever.

lets get real here, we don't have the stingiest defense as per yards allowed, however we force teams to drive for more yards per point given up than any other team in the NFL this season, a statistic often correlated with Superbowl champion teams.

the Browns offense has driven and earned 0 points thus far, their 3 points came thanks mostly to an INT return. Our defense is bending but certainly not breaking thus far.

Arians, you have had some good gains on the run. How about a play action?

We've kept them to 3 points...I'd say our D is doing it's job just fine.

Any other teams this year that kept the Browns to 3 points this long. Anyone? Bueller?

Correct, our D isn't the best, but still very good. Secondary needs work...

Yes, I'll agree with that. It is really a bend don't break defense. Sometimes, though, they bend a little too far back for my liking.

An interesting point of comparsion is the Ravens who have a similiar D to us yet the Browns were offensively in that game.
