I ended up sitting outside the hotel with a couple, watching the stream on my tablet and BSing.  Cocktails and beer were flowing, they were from Canton so we had a TON to chat about.

I ended up watching barely nothing of the 4th quarter though it was  in my lap.  The stories from these 2 were amazing and I will relate them sometime soon.

Tommy's pizza here is delicious!!

For those of you having trouble streaming, the game is on NFL Network tonight at Midnight Lambeau Time (That's 10:00 PM for you West coast fans)

P.S. I'm in the chat room for the 2nd half

For some reason, Directv is not letting me see the game.  Might be because the previous game, AZ vs OAK, was available locally and the message didn't reset. 

Was watching the Olympics at the same time so my observations  of game are scant. 

-- defensive line looked to hold their ground, get pad level low, & not get turned. Lowry in particular looked more athletic than advertised, not just a "try hard guy", but showed some burst & penetration 
-- Just as announcers were talking about MM being interested in learning how Martinez was going to tackle, he missed a tackle which allowed Browns to run for a first down off tackle 
-- Pass pressure was there all night, even though RG3 completed his first couple passes, he got knocked down on every one, which may have contributed to him throwing the INT. 
-- Was it Randall that was beaten badly on the first play of game for a 50 yard gain? Not good since Browns have many of their top receivers not playing. 
-- Callahan looking better was in direct correlation to the Browns subbing out some starters.  
-- Starting o line was dominant, winning the LOS on nearly every play. 
-- Huge mental error by someone on safety left Browns NT unblocked! 
-- Cook looks like the real deal 
-- Abby took some physical shots near the head & came out OK 
-- Lacy looks better  
-- I think in real game, we would win easily even with Hundley at QB.

- ILB's looked good.  Martinez, Thomas and even Bradford.

- Ripkowski looked unsure. A lot of dancing and not a lot of hitting.

- Jones looked good at OLB.  We are really deep there and I think Jones and Perry are going to have good years.  If we can hold up against the run on early downs, this D could be really good with a dominate pass rush in front of a good secondary.

- So far I like Williams ahead of the D3 kid for practice squad QB.  He plays with confidence while the D3 kid seems a little timid.  Hopefully for her m he starts letting it go.

- Spriggs didn't embarrass himself.  As advertised he pass blocked well but was meh in the ground game.

- Perillo needs to be #3 TE.   If Janis goes on IR it might make room for a 4th TE.
