ROMEO CRENNEL, BELOW: The Browns coach failed to get his team past an opponent that hadn't so much as held a lead before yesterday, but he succeeded marvelously in pointing the finger afterward, saying, "I would like for our guys to catch the ball."

MARK BRUNELL: That thudding sound you heard was the Redskins quarterback crashing back to earth. Brunell put up feeble numbers (11 of 28, 65 yards, 0 TDs, 1 INT) against the league's second-worst pass defense.

EAGLES' DEFENSE: One week after doing the seemingly impossible in shutting down LaDainian Tomlinson, this unit found it impossible to contain the Broncos, giving up 564 net yards and 49 points, including three late scores.

CHRIS SIMMS: So what if this was his first start of the season? He had a bye week to prepare, he'd started in the NFL before, and it was against the 49ers. Three turnovers -- and no win -- just ain't good.
