Craig already has his recap up on the site, showing again how he’s one of the best in the blogosphere.

Overall, the Browns played pretty well for about three quarters today. They played decently well, enough to be competitive and maybe win. But they were abysmal — as bad as ever — for the first half of the first quarter and the last half of the first quarter. And those are kind of important.

So the Browns are 0-3 for the sixth time since coming back in ’99. The next two weeks aren’t much easier either, as the team heads to Baltimore and then the NY Giants.
