1995 Steelers 20 vs Browns 3 MNF

Slash! Rookie Kordell Stewart throws his first career TD pass and Erric Pegram rushes for 112 yards as the Steelers whip the lethargic Bill Belichick-coached Cleveland Browns and take control of the AFC Central. Johnson kicks two FGs and O'Donnell adds a 4th-quarter TD pass as the Steelers win their 3rd straight. Stewart, in a formation foretelling things to come, lines up behind center with the game scoreless in the 2nd quarter and Pittsburgh at the Cleveland 2. Stewart rolls right and is cut off. With no receivers open, he sprints back left and looks as if he is going to run, but he pulls up at the last moment and lofts a pass to Mills drifting across the back of the end zone. Stewart, who catches 2 passes for 21 yards, also picks up a key 1st down in the 4th quarter when he runs 11 yards on an option. Five plays later, O'Donnell hits Thigpen with a 9-yard scoring toss. The Browns manage just 120 yards, only 10 of which came in the 2nd half (with ZERO first downs)! Cleveland goes 1-of-10 on 3rd-down conversions and is sacked 4 times.

I wonder what would've happened if Modell kept Belichick as head coach remember Baltimore eventually got Lewis & Ogden in the draft history could've changed

Here's my theory: Belichick in New England without Brady = Belichick in Cleveland. 

Belichick isn't a genius; Brady is.

Lots of ESPN stuff after this game: highlights, a breakdown of shy Browns quarterback Eric Zeier was so terrible, and a couple of segments with Mark Malone, including one where he interviews Kordell Stewart. There's also an ever-so brief (less than five seconds) clip of reaction to the Browns' move which I believe came from WEWS (ABC in Cleveland).

Malone's postgame interview with Kordell is hilarious.  Laugh  When Malone asks him if the offense has a new personality, Kordell completely loses track of what he's trying to say and it's like he's speaking in tongues. Laugh Complete gibberish. 

It's funnier when you hear it, but I couldn't resist transcribing it:

Malone: "Does this offense have a new personality?"

Stewart: "Well, I just, I just think when you, when you execute and do what you're supposed to do, you know, have an oppor, me, have an opportunity to get up in there and doin' certain things, it gives us that opportunity to go in there and do whatever we want to do and, uh, as long as we keep moving the ball down the field, uh, offense will move the ball down the field, yes, we are a running offense, type of offense, and uh, for us to throw the ball when we can and complete it, hey! That's that's great, but I, I see us as a 50-50 type offense and, uh, we just need to execute every time we get the ball on the field."
And then, seemingly pleased with his answer, Kordell turns to Malone with a smug look on his face like, "Nailed it."  Cool02

Kordell was such an out of control, ego maniac assclown.

I always liked Kordell and thought he was treated WAY too harshly in Pittsburgh. Certainly not a great QB... but he had some great moments. Unfortunately, the great moments were outweighed by not-so-great moments. Still... he was a lot of fun early in his career, and his brief "renaissance" in 2001 was a lot of fun until the AFCC.
