    The Browns Used 4 Timeouts Last Night

    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...or-the-browns/

    Cribbs injury was set up by fourth time out for Browns
    Posted by Mike Florio on November 17, 2009 12:37 AM ET
    As it turns out, the Stanford-band play that ended Monday night's game with Browns receiver Josh Cribbs being carted off the field should have never happened.

    Not just because the play shouldn't have been called, but because the Browns never should have been in position to call the play. In fact, the Browns never should have gotten the ball back at the end of the game.

    The Browns never should have gotten the ball back because they took -- and were awarded -- a fourth time out during the second half.

    A league source tipped us off to the glitch, and we've gone back and confirmed it via DVR and the official play-by-play at NFL.com.

    Cleveland took an initial time out with 3:24 to play in the third quarter. The Browns took their second time out with 3:35 to play in the game. And the third time out was used with 3:29 to go.

    So when the Ravens had a first down at the Cleveland 39 with two minutes to play, Baltimore should have been able to kill the remaining time with only three snaps (barring an incomplete pass or a run out of bounds).

    But the Browns called time out again after the first play following the two-minute warning. As a result, the Ravens turned the ball over on downs with 20 seconds to play, giving the Browns a chance to run three more plays -- including the one that sent Cribbs to the hospital.

    Why run that stupid play down by 16? Now one of your best (and one of the few decent) players is injured. 8 points doesn't do you any good.

    Rumor has it that Wrecks sold the Browns a TO (from the 1st Phins game) on EBay.

    You think it's a joke, but it's true.

    In 2007 when the Jets started 1-7, the Jets had a chance to win the game late but Chad threw a game-ending pick 6.

    The Jets get the ball back with mere seconds on the clock and Chad throws a hail mary to the endzone and Cotchery comes down with it as time expires. Jets lose.

    Both Chad and Mangini said in the post game press conference that they were happy how the team continued to compete after the pick 6.

    How does this happen in the NFL? 4 timeouts? I'm just sitting in my bed and I can see that there's obviously been an extra timeout called.

    None of the Baltimore coaches picked up on this? None of the 10 referees picked up on this? How does this happen in an NFL game?! Imagine if this was a playoff game or something of importance??

    Wrong.

    Mangini just switched services from Verizon to AT&T.

    He thought he could simply rollover the remaing Time Outs from the first half.
