First game. Terrible beginning. Started with a great first possession, and down hill from there.

Over the years, there have been a lot of controversial calls by the refs against the Browns. I suppose other teams may state the same thing, but today's drubbing was just as much from the refs as from the the Titans. Well anyways the momentum shifted and we lost big.

This was a punch in the nose and a wake up call to the team. Hopefully they will recover, my optimism won't. Just means I have seen too many seasons in Cleveland with a lot of hype. This year I let myself fall prey to it. That is because they do have the pieces. but as I texted my son after the third pre-season game, "they look rusty." I remember back a few coaches ago, I think it was Romeo Crennel, who had the player during practices run full bore, then at the last pull up on blocks, tackles and runs. I believe this affected the play during regular games and maybe threw off the timing. Not having the first string play in that 4th pre-season game this year may have done something similar.

Post game comment heard the most, "it's just one game." How many times over the years have Cleveland fans heard that? Too many.

A little deflated, but still holding out hope for the season.

Final Score Titans 43, Browns 13
Season 0-1
