As a fan I think it was fair to say that most of us were optimistic about this upcoming year for the Browns.

I wasn't as disappointed as some of my fellow fans out there.  I see promise in this team,  We all have to realize this is a new coaching staff with a lot of new faces on both sides of the ball.

I was pretty impressed with the way that our defense played in the first half of the game, i know they need to play that way for a full 4 quarters.  But lets get real didn't any of us think they were going to the playoffs this year?

I was discouraged though when it came to the offense of our team, this group was supposed to be the strength of our team.

We looked very sluggish when it came to the passing game, I would have liked to see the rookie wide-outs get some playing time. 

Robiske didn't even come into the game.  He is a big target that can help Brady in his maturation of being our QB for the future.  His route running skills are the best on the team that's what we have been looking for the past few years.  We used a second round pick on him lets get him into the game.

Massaqoui is another big receiver that has a ton of potential of becoming a useful big play-maker down field, He only got into the game toward the end of the game and when he was in there he got one reception for 18 yards. 

This was just something that I noticed during the game sunday, Just felt like I had to say something to get it off my chest.

I still love the Browns
