1987 Steelers 10 at Browns 34

Mark Malone throws 5 picks, including 4 in the 2nd half, as the Steelers drop their 6th straight at Cleveland Stadium. Malone completes just 12 of 36 passes for 151 yds, no TDs and of course, the previously mentioned 5 INTs and was sacked 3 times before being replaced by Bubby Brister midway through the 4th quarter. Not all of the INTs were Malone's fault. With the game tied 10-10 in the 3rd, Lipps drops a pass that hits him right in the hands, bounces off his foot and goes right to a Browns LB for the INT. Five plays later, Bernie Kosar hits Gerald "Ice Cube" McNeil for an 11-yd TD that snaps the tie and the Browns go on to score 17 more points in the 4th quarter, including a 26-yd INT return for a TD by Clay Matthews. Thanks to Jay Korber for providing us with this game!

I swear, it seems like every time Joe Namath did a game of ours back then, we got killed. lol I can remember him doing the infamous 51-0 loss to the Browns in 1989. He was a Steelers jinx.

Well, it could've been a Namath jinx, I suppose... but it also could've been that we were fielding some pretty lousy teams during the time he was in the booth.  Embarassed 

I used to laugh every time Namath said, "play," because it came out like, "puh-lay."  

"These are the longer cuh-leats they are going to be wearing while they puh-lay today, Marv."  Laugh

I realize it was our lousy teams, I just bring that up because I associate him with those lousy teams because it just he seemed like he did the worst ones we had back then. lol
