    "its just the Browns"

    People have already began to pull this chestnut out.

    They weren't doing it before the game were they?

    No mention of that in the week prior, was there?

    They were saying:

    "Gordon's going to gash us."
    "We won't be able to move the football"
    "Browns are the better team"

    Don't be hypocrites and eat your crow like sensible people.

    I thought that the Browns were much more talented than the Jets so I am very impressed by today. This has nothing to do with Rex or anybody.

    But it's just the Browns to be honest, a meaningless win does not account towards anything. If Rex is fired, this game nor the next one would have any bearing to his dismissal.

    The fact that the game is meaningless means nothing.

    People were talking this week like the Browns were going to absolutely destroy the Jets. They need to eat crow right now.

    Are you not aware of how things work around here? When the Jets win, it's completely the other team's fault.

    Yep. The agendas are as bad as in a political convention.

    This thread is not a "Keep Rex" thread. This particular issue bothers me in all sports. If you predict that a team is going to be bashed and then the other team wins, you have to eat crow and can't resort to "it's just the....." excuse.

    I think the Browns beat reporter on ESPN had us beaten 21-3 or something like that.

    Cimini and Dave Rothenberg has us losing. Chris Carlin and Adam Schein had us losing.

    Plus there was all this talk about Josh Gordon gashing the defense. And he did next to nothing.

    Exactly, and another reason why some Jets fans suck!

    But the Gordon thing was being lamented on here.

    "He will break records" etc.

    If you'd like to celebrate a meaningless already-eliminated garbage time win over a 4-win team mailing it in, by all means, enjoy yourself.

    I have a very hard time taking anything from today's win (on an organizational level) than that.

    Of course it's nice, as a fan, to get a "W".

    But any deeper meaning.....is, IMO, pure fantasy.

    A wins a win. The Browns aren't that bad of a team. They have taken a few soon to be playoff teams to he brink this year.

    btw i was at the game, it was a nice win...but the feeling in the stadium was like it was a notch above a preseason game. like half the stadium started to leave at halftime.

    In the long run, maybe not.

    But I am calling out the fans who thought that the Browns would beat us and then resort to the old excuse of "It's just the Browns"

    Pure hypocrisy. Whether the game means anything is regardless

    That's strange. It sounded like a rambunctious crowd

    neh, it was like 80% to start (uppers were empty in a bunch of sections) and a bunch of people started to head out at half time. pretty sure they pump in crowd noise or something.
