Boomer Report: Pure Hatred for the Pittsburgh Steelers

during a 1976 Browns/Steelers Game.
My pure hatred for the Pittsburgh Steelers, as a lifelong Cleveland Browns fan, theres one team I have nothing but pure-hatred for, those dam Steelers. The Browns and Steelers renew their rivalry on Sunday afternoon up in Cleveland for the first of two meetings this season. BEAT PITTSBURGH, HERE WE GO BROWNS, HERE WE GO.

Pittsburgh Steelers (6-4) at Cleveland Browns (2-8) Game Preview

The Cleveland Browns host the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday for the first of two meetings between these two AFC North divisional opponents. The Browns will go up again the Steelers 3rd string QB 37-year old Charlie Batch. The Browns are coming off an OT loss a week ago vs. the Dallas Cowboys, 23-20. The Steelers, who will rely on their defense and running game in this one, with Batch under center, are coming off a home defeat to the Baltimore Ravens on SNF, 13-10. The Steelers have dominated this series as of late, winners of 21 of 23, and 10 out of the last 11 meetings between the two teams. For the Browns to finally flip this series and turn it back into a fierce rivalry, its simple....THEY NEED TO START WINNING THESE GAMES! It starts on Sunday, facing old-man Batch, the Browns defense needs to make plays on the defensive side of the ball and force the Steelers into turning the ball over. Last week, the Browns front seven did a great job in pressuring Cowboys QB Tony Romo, and collecting 7 sacks in the game. The Browns also need to find a way to solve an ageless & banged up Steelers D, that despite a number of injuries this season, still are one of the better D's in the NFL. If the Browns are able to make the "winning plays" in this one, they will come away with their 1st win over the Steelers since December of 2009. The Browns, who have their next three out of four in Cleveland, look to pull off the upset and start a winning streak with games against the Raiders, Chiefs, and Redskins coming up. Here we go, Browns, Here we go!
