Browns lose another opener

Published: Sun, September 12, 2010 @ 4:45 p.m.

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Josh Freeman returned from a broken thumb on his throwing hand and had two touchdown passes to carry the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a 17-14 win over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.

Freeman, the second-year quarterback who missed the past three weeks with the injury, threw a 3-yard TD pass to Mike Williams late in the first half and then found Micheal Spurlock in the end zone for a 33-yard score that put Tampa Bay ahead 17-14 with just under seven minutes to go.

Jake Delhomme guided Cleveland to a 14-3 lead before things unraveled for the Browns, who have not begun a season with a win since 2004 and fell to 1-11 in openers since the club returned as an expansion franchise in 1999.

Seemingly in control and hoping to build onto the lead before halftime, Delhomme threw an ill-advised, sidearm pass that Ronde Barber intercepted and returned 65 yards to the Browns 3-yard line. Freeman threw his first TD pass on the next play.

Full story appears in Monday’s edition.

Oh brother,.. LOL !!

It's great that football season is officially back and let the spirited fun and games begin.

Where regionally Pittsburgh is still finding ways to win and if Cincinnati can get rid of Carson Palmer throwing high footballs they'd be really tough to beat.

The Buffalo Bills looked tough, the Detroit Lions got cheated and the sports world circus has relaunched in Cleveland with another stellar performance.

Yes sir that Steeler defense looked pretty good, the Bengals will start clicking and the Detroit Lions nor the Buffalo Bills are the worst team in the league.

Because when it comes to that " other " enclave of entertainers. It's beyond football and the comic relief they provide is one of a kind. So for intro's let's give them a round of applause.

Mike Holmgren as GM,.. LOL !!!

Eric Mangini as a coach,.. LMAO !!!

Jake Delhomme as a QB,.. ROTFL !!!

Show your love for that circus that the Clowns put on for the football community folks. By starting a petition that all Clowns games be broadcast on the cartoon network.

Yes Virginia although I can't confirm nor deny there is a Sante Claus. But I guarantee that those " Creevren Browns " will always stand alone,.. ROTFFLMAO !!!!

It was sick!!
I like what Tery Pluto(CPD)wrote. He makes some solid observations that ring true. But this is getting old, really old. Few questions

1) Why not pull the injured 35y/o QB that was gimping around in the pocket? Then...
2) Why not put Wallace and Cribs in since we have plays designed for them? Then...
3) Why not throw deep once and awhile to keep them honest?(or cant the WR get open?) Then...
4) Why not run a pitch or sweep with Harrison...ever?
5) Why did this game end after the INT late in the 2nd?

It appears or appeared as if this team was ready to win against Tampa.
Yet, here we are(and here I am kicking mysellf for betting on this team) again.

Its not the coach, its not the players, its some sick twisted pergatory BROWNS fans must endure.

Why I ask, WHY? What in the h#ll have we done to deserve this....this....CURSE!!!!

I want to root for another team at this point! But I cant

Maybe if the Browns play baseball and the Indians play football, things will change...
