Cowboys at Browns - Week 1 4:25 ... tough one to start

They’re all tough, but we’ve finally started using home field as an advantage. Cowboys fans are probably saying ‘tough one to start’, too. It will be Tom Brady’s debut as an NFL broadcaster.

we do have a few advantages:

they'll have a brand new LT playing on the road

they aren't as electric on grass and outdoors

Tom Terrific and Strahan cannot even be bothered to acknowledge that the Browns are part of the entertainment that Sunday as well.

I actually like this for us. According to PFT fox has the game exclusively so it might be carried nationally. We tend to show up for big national games. And we being a small market team against “Americas Team”, I think the players will be juiced.

Of course we don’t usually show up for the 1st game of the season but I think the winds are changing on that front. Dallas is one of those teams I just rarely fear, not just for the Browns, but anyone. Not that I bet (I don’t) but I wouldn’t bet on Dallas games most years. They show up huge one game, lay an egg the next. They’re as inconsistent as… the Browns.

Wow, zero mention… That tells you right there exactly what the national press thinks of you. I hope we use that a bulletin board material.

Who cares? It doesn't matter.


I saw some blurb that our home schedule is one of the tougher in the league. Our road schedule is one of the more favorable.

I'd rather have it that way. I think it does us a favor. Not that it is a favor. Schedules are largely established years in advance. The only ones that aren't are two games decided by last years schedule. It just kind of worked out this way.

We are better than the Cowboys. Just kick some ass. You don't play the name or mystic; you play the team of that year. They don't have a great back, the receivers are decent, Dak is a better than a average QB but so what? It's not like Emmett Smith is starting or Roger Staubach is chucking the ball. Randy White and Bob Lilly retired years ago.


If everybody had like minds, we would never learn.

The schedule has never been a big thing to me. You play teams in the NFL.

If you play well and are a good team; you should win. If you play poorly; you can lose to any team.

The Cowboys are the most over hyped/under performing team in football. The daily TV shows like "Get Up" must have their 401k's supplemented by Jerry Jones because they are obligated daily to have a segment covering the team.

They have done very little for a long time.

The schedule is set as I mentioned earlier. I don't care so much about the teams we play, it's about when. I go to games and they all require 3-4 nights lodging.

I like to plan my trips well in advance. I'll have all of my hotels booked by this weekend. At least the Saturday and Sunday portion in Cleveland.

We were definitely better at home than on the road. If we're gonna win the tough games, having those mostly at home is a boon to us. The numbers didn't lie last year, but remembering back I feel like we played significantly worse than we should have on the road (vs playing 'up' when at home). No doubt mounting injuries contributed to that, but regardless there was something going on that we need to fix if we're going to try to make a serious run this year.


There is no level of sucking we haven't seen; in fact, I'm pretty sure we hold the patents on a few levels of sucking NOBODY had seen until the past few years.

I hate to see the Broncos on our schedule for obvious reasons. We all the playoff history and our lifetime record against them is 7-25. Even the rare occasions we do win it's usually by 3 pints or less except for 2 games. The only team I dislike more than them is the Steelers with the Ravens a close 2nd. Here's hoping this year will be different fingerscrossed

Pittsburgh has their own team. Baltimore stole ours.


Intoducing for The Cleveland Browns, Quarterback Deshawn "The Predator" Watson. He will also be the one to choose your next head coach.

I really thought the Kansas City game would be a Monday night game with Jason Kelce now with ESPN.

Thank goodness that didn't happen.

I would love to go to the Vegas and New Orleans games.

This doesn’t look nearly as bad as I thought it did when they just listed all the teams. First handful of games could leave us in a pretty good spot heading into the middle 3rd. Last 3rd is indeed very tough but hopefully we’re playing for something other than pride at that point.

Is that from some source you found or just your projection? Not questioning you as much as wanting to know.

Ugly, 3 of the final 5 games are all division games on the road with the other two at home against KCC and MIA - that's brutal!

I also think that it's a must to go 4-1 or 5-0 through the first 5 with the next 4 being against PHI, CIN, BAL, and the LAC. The only plus there is 3 of those 4 are at home.

With the toughest schedule, slip ups in those games you're supposed to win could be disastrous.

DAL or JAC, NYG, WAS, LVR, NOS and DEN are must win games with .500 or better in the division gets us to 9 wins meaning winning 2 out of the remaining 8 will get the Browns into the playoffs.

"...BRUTAL last 6 weeks"

I say, "In order to run with the Big Dogs, you better learn to pee in the tall weeds!"

I'm perfectly fine with this schedule. Cleveland's'season ticket holders finally get to see some real games. Hopefully, we see more ticks in the "win" column!

Go BROWNS!
