Curse Of Cleveland's Cody and I were on location for Monday's lopsided loss at the hands of the Ravens, and after driving over 275 miles, riding the RTA for 20 minutes both ways, and getting home at nearly 4 'o clock in the morning, I can proudly say that it only looked worse in person. Thousands of fans (including us) arrived late, and tens of thousands more had left by the start of the fourth quarter, as the frustration mounts against this horrific offense, the entire organization, and its inept head coach. A spirited chess match for the first 30 minutes devolved into an insurmountable two-score lead thanks in large part to two Quinnterceptions.

Coming and Going: The Browns were without Pro Bowl punter Dave Zastudil, who has since been put on injured-reserve, as they signed former Mangini disciple Reggie Hodges, who got plenty of work. They were also without WR Chansi Stuckey, who still hasn't unpacked from New York. The Ravens were without DT Haloti Ngata.
