The Gatorade dunk at the end of the game says it all with rookie head coach Mike Pettine glad to be doused by Browns players.
The team won only its 2nd home opener since coming back in 1999–after the team was ripped out of Cleveland by sleazy Art Modell–and its 1st since 2004.
The Browns are now 1-1 and the Saints dropped to 0-2 under former MVP QB Drew Brees.
Many players contributed to the final 2:45 drive from Cleveland’s 4 yd line including the ley sack by journeyman Karlos Dansby that led to putting the Saints out of FG range and having to punt.
Says Tony Grossi from ESPN Cleveland:
On offense, start with receiver Miles Austin.
A key drop on third down weighed on him throughout the day. On the winning drive, the angular target had three catches for first downs. His last was a sliding grab inches from the left sideline boundary at the Saints’ 39. The play survived a replay review, after which officials tacked on seven additional seconds, leaving the Browns :15 on the clock to get closer for the field goal.
Then there was tight end Gary Barnidge.
Earlier in the fourth quarter, Barnidge’s clutch 13-yard catch and lean for an extra inch converted a third down on a touchdown drive that the Browns absolutely, positively had to have.
And then on the winning drive, there was Barnidge again, this time on fourth-and-6, crossing over the middle and holding on to a BB throw for a 10-yard gain to the Browns’ 48 with 38 seconds to go. Just about everybody called that the offensive play of the game.
There was receiver Andrew Hawkins, who was left wide open by New Orleans’ defensive coordinator Rob Ryan’s lame decision to call “cover 0,” an all-out blitz, on two consecutive plays. The first resulted in a bat-down at the line of scrimmage. On the second, Hawkins was so all alone 28 yards downfield, he resembled a returner fair-catching a punt.
At the end was Billy Cundiff, who nailed the 29-yard field goal with three seconds left to win it. When Cundiff was asked about his first game-winning kick in a Browns uniform, he quickly corrected the questioner and pointed out his field goal as a Phil Dawson injury-replacement under Eric Mangini in a 6-3 win in 2009 — a game, Cundiff pointed out, that set back football 40 years.
Ultimately, though, this team win reflected the toughness, poise and leadership of quarterback Brian Hoyer.
So last weekend, the Good Guys lost to the hated Squeelers by a FG at the end of regulation, this week they won in similar fashion from a position they are not too familiar with: a late game winning drive. Johnny Football will have to ride the pine for a while longer if hometown boy Hoyer continues his football ways as the starting QB..
And ESH says that is always a good thing i.e. winning.
Apropos that this Sunday Sept 14th is the Feast of the Exaltation of the True Cross, commemorating the finding of the True Cross by Ss Helen and Constantine in their pilgrimage to Jerusalem.
The devil and his minons both fear and despise the True Cross and all it stands for in the the economy of salvation of fallen mankind.
So thus the evil minions in the freemasonic communistic ACLU, the anti-Christian legal union, cringe and wail at the public sighting of any cross, even one so harmless as that on a football helmet.
The Remnant fortnightly newspaper has asked the big question of Pittsburgh’s Bishop Zubik and his war on the SSPX and Tradition: Why?
The Remnant’s Michael Matt gives Zubik the time of day and does some nifty backflips giving him the benefit of the doubt, very chawitable, when–for all those who have eyes to see–Zubik is acting with malice and forethought in trying to take a long stab at the SSPX, even though the horse is out of the barn already, as it were.
Watering down the faith to pablum for 50 years has taken its toll on Catholic dioceses and churches in America and more and more consolidation and so-called “clustering” is effected.
The gigantic sex abuse of young people by homosexual pederasts at North Catholic that erupted in May this year hasn’t helped, either.
Matt shows that there is luv, luv, luv and reconciliation and non-judmentalism and all kinds of squishy, gushy “isms” for all shades of heretics, schismatics and pagan rites, except no love and new evangelization for those who follow what the Church has always officially taught and held for all, to be held everywhere.
That and the SSPX bought a church building abandoned by the Pittsburgh diocese in 2004 (10 yrs ago for the low information types) to be used in secular and profane ways. And SSPX did right under Zubik’s almost-Machiavellian nose, as the latter has successfully kiboshed previous buildings the Society wished to obtain for the proper worship of God, in a Catholic manner.
Matt can ‘splain it better than ESH can any day, so do read the entire article.
And if you’re in the ‘Burgh, do stop in to pray and worship at the new SSPX Church in the Old West End, just across from the Golden Triangle at the confluence of the Ohio, the Mon and the Yough.
The Saintly Pope Pius X said it best about modernists and men of tradition:
“The true friends of the people are neither revolutionaries nor innovators, but men of tradition.”
ESH never thought he’d see it in the land of the hick and the home of the brave.
But, corporations are in full PC mode and bringing Mohammedan Sharia law sensitivity training to an employer near you, starting with Home Depot.
No intolerance or disagreement with a barbaric heretical theocratic ruling philosophy allowed. Who would have thought the day would come in America when American workers would be exposed to Mohammedan sensitivity training? Well, it’s here folks!
And in one of the most noxious Atlanta based companies which has gone in full bore for the perverted sodomite agenda.
The rapidly encroaching stain of Sharia Law in America expanding

CAIR is a terrorist organization with terror ties that will knock your eyes out. Since 9/11, CAIR associates have been indicted multiple times on terrorism-related charges. Now this same group has demanded and received from home improvement giant Home Depot that it’s employees be subjected to “muslim cultural awareness sensitivity training”. Look at the bright orange of the Home Depot logo, and then remind yourself what ISIS forces their beheading victims to wear when they are executed and you will begin to get the picture.
Middle East today, middle America tomorrow
The Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations yesterday provided cultural awareness training to employees at a Home Depot store in Dearborn, Mich. CAIR-MI Executive Director Dawud Walid and CAIR-MI Safe Spaces Coordinator Warda Kalim discussed issues relating to customer interactions and modesty in Islam and highlighted religious accommodations concerns of Muslim employees.
“We welcome such opportunities to engage Home Depot and other business establishments to better serve their Muslim customers and accommodate the cultural competency of their Muslim employees,” said CAIR-MI Executive Director Dawud Walid.
CAIR has helped resolve a number of similar cases involving prayer in the workplace and offers a booklet, called “An Employer’s Guide to Islamic Religious Practices,” to help corporate managers gain a better understanding of Islam and Muslims.
The post Home Depot Embraces Sharia Law With Forced ‘Muslim Sensitivity Training’ appeared first onNow The End Begins.”
You’d think with the negative PR debacle Home Depot recently had with millions of customer credit card info compromised, they would leave well enough alone. Guess Home Depot wants to chase out the few remaining loyal customers they had (past tense).
There are plenty of home repair/hardware/supply houses out there, so one need not confine oneself to an anti-Christian, anti-American outfit like Home Depot, if at all possible.
More from the “it won’t be reported in the drive by media” department.
Folks, you can’t make this stuff up. It is happening everywhere and with increasing regularity. And ESH thought we were a “post racial” nation now that the self-styled savior is occupying the White House like an ISIS stooge on vacay.
A gang of at least 6 black males sexually harrassed a white woman outside a bar in Springfield, MO and then when her boyfriend showed up, they beat the couple viciously and mercilessly.
Where are the Sharpton/Jackson race baiting hustlers and shakedown artists when you need them? How come no non-stop coverage and hand wringing by the state run drive by media?
The woman, Meredith Cole, told police she was sexually harassed outside the club by several of the black males on August 22. She quickly went inside to retrieve her boyfriend, Alex Vassey, a DJ at the Outland Ballroom. The pair then went outside to see if they could identify any of the harassers.
Once out on the street, a gang of six black youths snuck up behind them and started attacking the couple, beating them in their faces and kicking Vassey after he was knocked to the ground.
The video clearly shows Vassey being viciously assaulted, as well as showing the young woman being punched in the face and knocked to the ground twice.
The victims were both sent to the hospital and treated for multiple contusions, bruises, and cuts. Cole also suffered a fractured ankle. No perps have been held or arrested yet.
