Found September 23, 2012 on Waiting For Next Year:


A huge game in many ways for the Browns moving forward as they host the Buffalo Bills in Cleveland this afternoon. The Browns will look to keep up their offense rhythm from last week’s loss to the Bengals while also hopefully improving a bit on the defensive side.

From the leadership side of things, many are already saying how bad a loss would be for the combination of Mike Holmgren and Pat Shurmur in terms of their future with the franchise. Obviously, we all know Holmgren might be out already when Jimmy Haslam III has his hands on things, but an 0-3 start wouldn’t really give off a great first impression of Shurmur either.

Come join with us in the fun and share your thoughts in the comments as the game moves forward. Check out some links as well after the jump.
