Man. The girls in the stands in Cleveland. I mean, Man! Don't drink the water there!

I also saw some fans with mullets. It's almost unbelievable. I thought the jokes about that city were jokes.

The biggest joke in Cleveland is the NFL team here.

Otherwise, it ain't such a bad place. Know a lot of ex-pat Steelers fans here from the 'Burgh and while they miss home, they, to a man (or woman), enjoy Cleveland. It really isn't such a bad place, and I have said it for years on Steelers boards.

I have always invited folks from these boards to come here and see for themselves about Cleveland. I've never been taken up on the offer. Nevertheless, the offer is a standing offer to any fan here who wants to come to Cleveland. I'll be the tour guide and we'll compare notes. I think the Steeler Universe here would enjoy Cleveland, particularly if they came in with an open mind. I can fill in the gaps.

Saw the last 5 minutes. Stains lose to Denver. Looks like Zorro played well - that's great, that means he'll stick around long enough for us to sack him 8 or 10 teams next time we meet.

Hey, Buckeyehoppy, I spent a few days in Cleveland last year, I liked the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!

The Clowns FAIL, 34-30.

Quinn looked good. But it is never enough to just be good, especially when your defense SUCKS ball$.

The Clowns are 3-6. Season over, thanks for playing!

The RRHOF is a pretty good museum and the folks who run it work to make it pretty diverse and topical with good feature exhibits, showcase concerts, etc.

Glad you liked it here. During the summer, the place is downright delightful most of the time. What else did you do when you were here? What brought you here? Always curious to find out the impressions of visitors.

Brady actually played well. Too bad their defense decided to take the 4th quarter off.

Personally, I think Brady will be an improvement over DA (thought that's not saying too much). DA was the most overrated QB of last year and had no business being in the Pro Bowl, something which I've said since last season. :)

Too bad none of that will help the Stains in round 2 this year. 8)

Denver laid a big ol' Cleveland Steamer on Quinn's chest (rumor has it that he liked it). It is pretty bad when you lose at home to an AFC West team that has absolutely no defense or any healthy running backs whatsoever. Going into tonight's game, the 4 AFC West teams were on a combined 11 game losing streak. No one wants to win that division. But, they are better than Cleveland.

:brownssuck

It is amazing how watchable an NFL Network game can be when called by Giants play-by-play guy Bob Papa instead of Bryant Freaking Gumbel. I almost feel like channeling Biggie Smalls..."I love it when you call games, Bob Papa" :lol:

I've been to Cleveland a couple of times several years ago. Not a bad city overall (even though their football team are professionals at sucking @$$). Stayed with a college friend out in Mentor the first time and we went to Cedar Point in Sandusky (awesome if you are into roller coasters). Another time, I took a group of 7th and 8th graders out there to visit the Rock-N-Roll Hall of Fame, the Science Center right next to it, and to the park that used to be Sea World, then became Six Flags, and who knows what it is called now. Never really got out on the town to check out the restaurants and night life and such, though. My sister married a guy who spent most of his years growing up in Cleveland (he's a Steeler fan, though :tt2 :Steel :tt1 ). They live a few towns away from me now here in NEPA, but they visit some of his friends and family out in Cleveland pretty regularly, and they seem to enjoy their time out there.

I grew up in the Pittsburgh area and then lived for more than 10 years in Cleveland. I still visit both quite having friends and family in both areas. I love Pittsburgh more, but never NEVER try to play the mullet card in this argument. Since the 80's Pittsburgh has always far surpassed Cleveland in mullets per capita. It may be our proximity to WVA, but mullets are to pittsburgh as porno mustaches are to the West Side of Cleveland.

Ha that's awesome! Papa is great at calling games. He's awesome on Sirius NFL Radio. Him and Shannon Sharpe together are a riot (I can actually bear Sharpe on radio). But as for NFL Network broadcast, anyone that doesn't burp on air or suck on a lozenge while trying to make a call and you can hear it rattling their teeth is a big upgrade. So Papa was like landing on the moon for them.

Quinn looked good. But it is never enough to just be good, especially when your defense SUCKS ball$.

The Clowns are 3-6. Season over, thanks for playing!

:brownssuck

Quinn looked good against one of the worst defenses in the entire NFL. Big deal. The vast majority of his passes were less than 10 yards. Put him against a decent defense and he is going to get destroyed.

So we have now seen the next "Pretender" in Cleveland and he isn't much.

I wonder if ESPN has asked the Browns to give the pre-season Super Bowl trophy back yet?

No they haven't. Because now that Brady is starting they told them to just keep it because they will need it anyway next preseason.

Yeah, did you see the graphic in which they broke down all of his passes into the short, medium, and long and left, right, and middle? Brady didn't have a single long pass attempt, had one incompletion to the middle right, and everything else was short. And that was against a plain AWFUL defense.

Only one of Quinn's passes completed was over 8 yards in the air. He isn't any good....just another Charlie Frye!

Well, I'm not saying he's good, but we can't say he's NOT good just because he took what Denver gave him. Remember, a lot of us have been saying on this board (and not without some justification) that Ben needs to take the short stuff when the long stuff isn't there, instead of forcing it.

Having said all that: Zorro does suck, the Browns (of course) suck, and the era of the Quinnster is guaranteed to be just another sorry a*s page in their sorry a*s history!

[Hey BuckeyeHoppy, yeah I was there for a meeting. The only time I got out was to go to the RxR HoF, the rest was fluorescent light city. Nice from what I saw, and the taxi driver was nice too!]

It's wise, IMO, for them to give him the high percentage stuff in his first start. They were scoring at will except for Winslow's screw-ups.

If I'm Romeo, Winslow is cleaning the latrines this week.

My point of laughter has been the pathetic season that is owned by Braylon Edwards. Another over-hyped stain whose not worthy of the attention. Leads the league in dropped passes. Talk about no factor.... I think he had one reception in this one.

My point of laughter is that everyone was picking them to be the division winners. The "experts" were saying they were the new class of the AFCN. They had a star quarterback (LMAO) on an elite offense and an improved defense.

How's that prediction working out, numbnuts? :lol: :lol: :lol:

You maybe right Blood. I have been to the Burgh once and to Cleveland never. But when there (last August) I didn't see one mullet (I was told to look for them), and lots of hot girls.

On the broadcast, when they panned the crowd, I saw mullets and a lot of corn-fed women. It was consistent. That's all I'm saying.

I hadn't been watching the game from the start, so I had no idea who the NFLN P-B-P guy. A trained billy goat could do better than Bryant Gumballs. I've always liked Collinsworth, even if he used to be a Bunghole.

Cleveland is improving its profile with tourists, but it has been a slow go. The Euclid Corridor just opened and links downtown with University Circle (UC is where Cleveland Clinic, Case Western and University Hospital is). UC has many of Cleveland's cultural attractions: the Museum of Art, Western Reserve Historical Society, Severance Hall (where the Cleveland Orchestra plays). It's also where Little Italy is (lotsa kick @$$ food over there)

Sadly, Sea World and Geauga Lake have both closed and many of the parks effects have been sold off. The water park still exists at Geauga Lake, but the rest of the park is in the process of being dismantled. Cedar Point is pretty cool. I don't do amusement parks much any more, but Cedar Point is probably the gold standard among them.

The Rock Hall and Science Center are a great one-two punch on the lakefront.

OK, duly noted. Nice that the taxi driver was good for ya, because that is mostly the exception to the rule. That's the one thing this town needs to improve is taxi service. It's a hit or miss proposition to get a cab here and you can't just hail one from a street corner, you have to call for one. IMO, that's bush league.
