Default Cleveland priority No1 Pittsburgh

We`ve been talking about this on and off for a few days now. In cleveland their philosphy is beat Pittsburgh thats it. GM Savage asked all his players alst week, one on one, can you beat the Steelers. Yesterdays 2nd round pick this is how Savage desribe him. " He is a player that can go toe to toe with Pittsburgh" Wow thats scary, if savage thinks one second round pick lB is the difference maker, he is sadly mistaken. Have the brownies improved YES, but so have we, Not a chance savage, not a chance/

Too much focus on one team is one of the reasons they are so far under .500

Actually I would typically agree with that but not in this case.

I think they should be trying to compete in the AFC North first. That will battle test most teams for a run in the playoffs

Thats exactly it..they are so focused on us, it doesnt matter about anyone else... that's an awful lot of pressure to put on entire team, much less a new draft pick straight outta college. What are they supposed to say, "uh no coach, Im not good enough to play them" ..of course not, they're gonna say, "yeah coach, i can do it, bring em on".. if they beat us, its their super bowl, plain and simple.

i don't understand why so many up in here are baffled over the fact that savage wants a team that can beat the steelers. you're the nfl champions, and the toughest team in our division. you were the only team that dominated us last year. of course savage doesn't think the steelers are the ONLY team to beat this season.

if we can beat you guys, than that proves we can compete against any other team in the nfl. and savage (as do i) thinks that the players we've picked thus far address the weaknesses we had last season. i'm positive he doesn't think the browns chances of beating the steelers rests solely on our second round draft pick.

you know, every team in the nfl guns for the superbowl champs, it's not just the browns.

No doubt Brownies put special emphasis on the Steelers, but I think his comment was more of a way of saying the guy can handle the NFL. Of course, no one is more hard-hitting or tougher to play than the Steelers, so that's what he meant. Quit thinking the world revolves around us.

Wrong just because a one team beats aanother means squat, sometimes matchup are exposed more between two teams thann the rest of the NFL, or we might of had an off day. Like the old saying, Even a blind dawg finds a bone now and then.
And we were just recently crowned world champs again, if you knew this city it is 24/7 if they were to win just one game and it was against the Steelers they would have felt that they had a succesful season. It is the teams mentality, and the fans for sure. They never talk 10 wins, they only talk beating the Steelers. If they were to lose to the steelers twice big deal if you are headed for the playoffs. Number one concentration should always be wins, not teams. You get 16 games to stake your claim on a playoff berth, if you want to use us as motivation and not wins fine, but after the first loss is your season over??? Think about rationally, wins are what matters. I want the Steelers to win 12+ games, who they lose to, big deal, just get to the dance.

The browns #1 priority has always been the Steelers...every year you hear someone in the FO for the browns talk about making sure they beat the Steelers..the fans always say.. I dont care if we do 2-14 as long as we beat the Steelers.

Hence the reason the browns have been bad for so long..their goals are all wrong. Focus on your future and grabbing players that can help you. The wins will come in time if they are focused, which they havent been for quite awhile.
