    Default Things could get "dirty" next Sunday against the Saints

    Browns accuse Saints of dirty play

    Posted by Mike Florio on October 24, 2010 6:53 PM ET


    The Cleveland Browns understandably were happy after they scored an unlikely upset win over the Saints on Sunday.

    But some members of the team were upset, due to their belief that the Saints played dirty.

    Said Josh Cribbs of the Browns of a pile that erupted after a fumble, according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, "They were grabbing my crotch.''

    Safety Nick Sorensen (who once was accused by Pacman Jones of crotch grabbing) claims that another area of his body was abused.

    "I was at the bottom and they were gouging my eye and all of that stuff,'' Sorensen said. "They were gouging my eye and ripping into my face. It was dirty, but that's just what happens. They pulled my helmet off a couple of times, but I don't know if it's the helmet or the fact they probably shouldn't be grabbing my facemask. I don't know, it's just part of the deal.''

    Presumably, Sorensen's eyes and Cribbs' crotch will be hurting a little less than they would have been if the Browns had fallen to 1-6.

    Well, to an extent, I believe this stuff happens all the time... Back on Thursday I was listening to one of the radio shows (not sure which), and they had a few ex-players on there talking about what happens at the bottom of a pile... Maybe it was Waddle or someone else that played in Chicago, but he said that he was always bruised from top to bottom from being "pinched repeatedly"... Sorta confused me, because I never remembered him under a pile too often... But they also had two ex-linemen who said it was absolutely brutal... I doubt it is too different from game to game, or team to team...

    Las Vegas odds have this Sunday night's game against the Saints at Pick'em...N.O. is even more banged up injury-wise than we are.

    I guess that sounds about right actually. We're playing them there, they're still the defending champs, and their record is still 4-3 after that ugly loss Sunday. I guess that means if the game was here, we'd be a 6 point favorite?

    I think the line will settle somewhere around Saints -1 to 1.5 with the return of Reggie Bush. Not a big factor but he opens things up for them just a little bit more on offense.
