The Pittsburgh Steelers closed out their 2017 regular season with a home win over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday and it sounds like they only had one player injured during the contest, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.
But there was some new emotion as the reality sank in. "I am very fortunate and blessed as I said earlier". "They don't like it now, I don't like it anymore than they do but this is the hand that we're dealt and we've got to fix it". "It was tough, you know?"
Maybe it's the change of calendar and the end of the losing on the last day of 2017, but I'm feeling better about the Browns than I have in a long time.
The intangible reward is the "Perfect Season Parade", to be hosted by fan Chris McNeil, which will take place January 6 at noon. Even the Lions managed it after their own 0-16 mess. "Of course nobody likes it". Cleveland Browns rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer somehow escaped pressure.
"We are thankful for Chuck's contributions to our franchise and community and we wish him, Tina and the entire Pagano family nothing but the best moving forward". "But today is today". Browns QB DeShone Kizer entered the game with the worst passer rating (57.9) of a starting quarterback since JaMarcus Russell's 50.0 in 2009.
In the Steelers' 28-24 win over the Cleveland Browns, Smith-Schuster caught nine passes for 143 yards and a touchdown, and also returned a kickoff 96 yards for the game-winning touchdown in the third quarter.
The Coleman drop was the lowlight of the game, and while I do feel bad for him, a play like that is just inexcusable.
"This (memory) will last forever", Coleman said.
Landry Jones, not Ben Roethlisberger, warms up. Such are the ways of the Browns. Owner Jimmy Haslam has also echoed those sentiments and they were the reason he fired former head of football operations Sashi Brown.
"I remember standing approximately here past year and apologizing to our fans for the poor job we had done as owners, and I would just reiterate that again".
The Browns will try to turn this page as fast as possible.
Browns: "With the first pick in the 2018 National Football League draft, the Cleveland Browns select". Unfortunately for Buffalo, they lost Shady McCoy to what looked like a serious ankle injury, meaning they're going into Jacksonville next week severely outmanned. Haslam reiterated that he will be the coach and said Jackson had shown "great leadership" despite going 1-31. Some coaches, tired of the losing and culture, might prefer to move on, two league sources said.
Asked if he wants to come back here next season for his 10th season and second year of his two-year Browns deal, he said, "I'm under contract, so that's how it works". I don't think Hue has lost his magic on how to call plays or how to run an offense or how to coach a team. "That's what John Dorsey is here for, that's what I'm here for". Tomlin said it will likely be an "11th-hour decision" as to how much playing time to give his starters but insisted there will be no "empathy" toward the plight of the Browns factoring into his thoughts. He knows that fans are angry and skeptical, but he's a believer.
"I have said before that at some point in time I would like to do [that] differently because I think it is important to coach the team", Jackson said. "I'm convinced of that".
