The Cleveland Browns won their third in a row last night. I covered the recap already, but I had some more random thoughts coming out of the game. Are we jerks? Cleveland Browns fans needed Brandon Weeden after Brian Hoyer got hurt and yet booed him onto the field last night. I can’t blame anyone for having that opinion of Weeden and his slower than slow decision-making ability, but I’d be lying if I said hearing the chorus of boos over my TV didn’t make me a bit embarrassed. I also didn’t boo Chris Perez when he was announced before the Wild Card game. I haven’t come to a conclusion yet. I’m honestly asking a question here. The referees’ pink flags have got to go. I think I speak for all of us when I say we hate breast cancer. I’m also here to tell you that I’m aware of it and everything involving it thanks to the NFL’s pink October. When the referees have to change their flag color to pink, it’s gone too far. Last night when Joe Haden was flagged for pass interference in the end zone, I thought maybe the two players had accidentally dropped the pink towels that they had in their waistbands. Nope. Those were the officials’ flags that looked like the towels, shoes, gloves, and everything else that was emblazoned pink for awareness. Referee flags are supposed to stand out and look different for a reason. The awareness campaign has gone overboard. Give the refs their yellow flags back. The Browns went Brown on Brown with their uniforms last night. There were a whole host of opinions available on the fashion choice. I rarely express an opinion on sports fashion because it really doesn’t matter that much to me. I have to admit that I was a fan of the Brown on Brown last night. USA Today on the other hand went all Buzzfeed on the topic to repeatedly hammer home the point that they didn’t like them. Seems to me that they just don’t like the brown color in the Browns’ normal uniform anyway. Thumbs up or thumbs down? Would you prefer just to see the white pants back with the Brown jerseys? At least one silly commenter at the Buffalo News thinks it was no “couinsident.” And by that I think he meant “no coincidence” that Tashaun Gipson went low on E.J. Manuel after Brian Hoyer was knocked out of the game. I’m going to preface this by saying the Buffalo News commentariat was very smart and reasonable other than this one guy who I’m picking out. “If you watched the browns d aftet thier qb went out cuz of his own doing they started going low at ejs knees every cjance they got I don’t thinl that’s a couinsident I think dirty couch told them to go ater his legs to purposly knock ej out that just a desperate team playing dirty footballssame on the browns carma will show it ugly face to tjem” LOL. Hope your weeks are finishing well and the weekend is looking good. Regardless of how they did it, the Browns won so you are free to enjoy your Sunday however you prefer. Weigh in on these topics in the comments if you feel like it. (AP Photo/David Richard)

  • well I like how because we are good fans and you have to earn our respect. we are the bad guys. we respected weeden when he settle in. we are just good strict fans that love our football and take it seriously. sorry we arent so much different from any other fan bases except we are louder then any other when we are winning. did anyone notice how loud and crazy we were when things are going good. and when things are going bad, we are still in the game unlike your spoiled teams like greenbay, Ny giants, pittsburg steelers, and indianapolis colts. they have playoff teams every year and we are still a louder fan base and more active. People stop beleiving in the bad news coverage and commentating. the commentators last night couldnt call the game if it was in slow motion.
