Browns hang tough

Give the Browns credit for not quitting. The defense was banged up so badly even the backups got hurt.

Firing Eric Mangini is the easy way out for Browns owner Randy Lerner. If he listens to the fans and median critics, Mangini will be toast. But there is no denying the Browns are playing better, particularly Brady Quinn. Quinn has seven touchdown passes in his last three games and no interceptions. He has thrown 127 passes without being picked. That was his trademark at Notre Dame.

The Browns lost because they could not cover Antonio Gates. He caught eight passes for a career high 167 yards.

The 30-23 final was a true reflection of how the Browns played. They shut down the San Diego running game better than expected. The Browns are improving. It just isn't showing in the win column.
