Head coach Eric Mangini didn't mind the loud music blaring from the Cleveland Browns' locker room Sunday afternoon after what his team accomplished on the field.

"The blood, sweat, and tears of training camp, the guys wonder why we push them so hard," he said. "Now they know."

The Browns expected to get destroyed by the superior Baltimore Ravens, but took a 17-14 lead into the fourth quarter before losing 24-17. But nobody in Brown and Orange seemed aware of that fact.

"I heard television commentators say we could lose by 30, 40 points," one player yelled. "Where are they now?"

The locker room erupted in cheers.

Meanwhile, local Browns Backer clubs were planning to gather a giant group to great the team at the airport.

"There have been some tough times, but a moral victory like Sunday makes it all worth it," said a fan who wanted to be called Krazy Dawg. "Tonight we are gonna party like it is 1999!"

Added Browns Backer Jack Sheets, "To see the look on the Ravens' fans' faces in the start of the fourth knowing that if everything broke our way, the Ravens could have conceivably lost to us—that was priceless!"

After the postgame press conference, an emotionally drained, champagne-soaked Mangini was all smiles as he took a phone call from NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, who called to congratulate the team on the effort.
