but it sure seems that the Browns DBs are getting away with an awful lot of holding and illegal contact.

I saw one play where Ben went to Wallace but it was incomplete because Wallace couldn't get to the ball. Right when he made his break the DB grabbed his jersey and actually pulled it off his shoulder pad. On another play where Holmes was seriously gesturing for a flag the replay showed the defender held one of his arms down.

I guess the league has come full circle on this... the Cheats beat the Colts and won in '03 while the Horseshoes' receivers went in for rape kits. Then they increased enforcement in the passing game and made it so their db's actually had to beable to cover somebody in order for them to win... Mangini was there. He learned at the feet of the master, and now he'll have his guys do the same thing. You make the refs call it, and if they don't, you keep on doing it.
