Extra Pine Tar:
The real refs are much better
Great to see a smooth game played. The product may not have been the best, but at least the refs didn’t add an additional hour and half to the game with constant meetings, reviews and overall ***********. Welcome back, refs. Here’s to hoping Ed Hochuli kept in shape over the lockout.
There was noticeably less Cee Lo last night
Our prayers were all answered. I only saw a few glimpses of that fat martian. Last week it was seemingly every commercial break that revolting blob was screaming about football. I think the NFL realized the horrific mistake they made by hiring that marvel of modern science. And for that, we thank you.
It makes me sick to say, but Joe Flacco is really, really good
I’m not ready to call him “elite” yet, or put him the same breathe as Brady, Rodgers or Brees, but some of those passes he made last night were absolutely beautiful. They weren’t the high arching bombs that we’ve always known Joe Flacco could through. Instead, he would t...

Joe Flacco is one of perpetural internet scorn, and why stop today. Thursday night, the Baltimore Ravens’ QB made sure to not be confused with Rob Gronkowski.
BEREAGreg Little caught four passes for 77 yards against the Ravens, but he will be remembered for the one he didnt catch.
With 4:45 to play in the game and the Browns trailing 23-13, Little went high into the air in the end zone and couldnt come down with the pass that wouldve made it 23-20. Instead, Phil Dawson kicked a 52-yar d field goal to make it 23-16.
You dream and go...
As if being a Browns fan isn’t bad enough, last night was just adding insult to injury. They teased the fans into thinking they had a chance to beat the Ravens, and naturally, collapsed at the end. At the center of it all was wide receiver Greg Little (@Str8UpGlittle) who dropped a would be game-tying touchdown in the end-zone in the last minute. Browns fans went nuts, ripping...
Joe Flacco shut up some of the naysayers (myself included) after he was able to put together a virtuoso performance in their 31-30 victory over the New England Patriots.
Throwing for 382 yards and 3 TD is a primetime performance against the other quarterback who was named Tom Brady.
Ray Rice was effective as usual rushing for 101 yards on 20 carries, but he also hauled in 5 passes...
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Greg Little (second in drops last season) continued his catching problems last night against the Baltimore Ravens, dropping a total of five catches, including a great Brandon Weeden would-be-touchdown pass that he had right in his hands.
“My job is just to beat the guy and get through the middle of the field,” Little said. “[Weeden] moved...
There’s something wrong with a team, when your running back is is leading the way in receiving yards and catches. Trent Richardson has 15 receptions 122 yards and 1 TD. Currently on this Browns team, 1 TD is the highest amount among the receivers on this team. To give you a perspective, currently the NFL’s leader in receptions is Calvin Johnson he has 24 receptions for 369...
A few dropped passes, none no bigger than Greg Little's drop late in the fourth quarter hamper the Browns once again.
Rookie QB Brandon Weeden pushes the Baltimore Ravens to the edge as rushing attack abandoned.
BALTIMORE -- It was a rough night for the Ravens' offensive line. After an encouraging game against the New England Patriots in which quarterback Joe Flacco wasn't sacked and was rarely hit, he sustained several big hits as the offensive line regularly broke down against the Cleveland Browns on Thursday night. Flacco was sacked a season-high four times and hit six times...
Tonight had such great potential, what with replacement refs and the Cleveland Browns on the field at the same time. But, no, the NFL and the real refs just had to settle their squabbles in time for tonight. After three weeks of chaotic deliberations of the rule book, the real refs will take the field. I feel a bit robbed. I was looking forward to a team being granted four timeouts...
Cleveland Browns @ Baltimore RavensThe new age Browns (Cleveland Browns) versus the old school Browns (Baltimore Ravens). It is known that the Ravens aren't happy about playing in the Thursday night game after playing in the Sunday night game. While they think they are not getting enough rest or time to game plan, the scheduling gods did help them out by putting them up against...
The regular NFL officials returned to work Thursday night, and the fans gave them a warm welcome back before bestowing their loudest cheers upon the Baltimore Ravens, who never trailed in a 23-16 victory over the winless Cleveland Browns.
Joe Flacco went 28 for 46 for 356 yards, threw one touchdown and ran for another. Cary Williams returned an interception 63 yards for a score...
As usual Thursday is the beginning of the NFL week and while there was just one game it was way worth watching, no matter who you rooted for. The fact that there was a former North Carolina football player in it made it ever more worthwhile, add that the wide out had a good game it then totally made it worth your time to watch. As usual to gather my information I have used information...

The Ravens will be playing their fourth game in 17 days, and third primetime game in their first four Thursday night when they take on the division rival Browns.
Cleveland is winless and has a rookie quarterback and running back combination in the backfield.
The winless part won’t change for Cleveland because the Ravens’ defense will harass Brandon Weeden into mistakes. Weeden...
