    Week One Browns 31 Saints 17

    The last game of week 1 finally commenced and it was a showcase of 1st round rookie quarterbacks.

    Both QBs looked solid in their first performance as starters of their teams, but other than one long TD in the 1st quarter, Dane Morrow had a case of happy feet. Jack English looked like a veteran off the bat, and had the time in the pocket to make some pretty passes.

    The game was close throughout, but the Browns hard-nosed running with crazy strength Jamal Lewis pulled out the victory.

    Good game Saints, and GL on the rest of your season.

    QB Dane Marrow 15-26 246yrds 1td 1int

    keller 3 fumbles. some crazy plays on offense for the browns where it was just inches away from going my way and I never got any of those breaks. zone defense all day long was tough to face. post outs started to catch on but my defense couldn't get but one pick. not a great start - back to the drawing board. If Keller plays like this next week then Washington is getting the start, he played great today when he was in there.

    Keller was getting light up.. But I lost D.Jackson for the whole season on that tackle on J.English.

    That sucks.

    SAINTS FALL IN OPENER - MORROW BRILLIANT

    Cleveland, OH - Savage Mason Reporting

    Season II of the OMFL season was finally here! Week 1 would not let down as the Saints (0-1) rolled into the Browns (1-0) stadium to have the #1 and #2 QB face off against each other. Both teams are totally revamped and have their eyes on the goal. Everyone is 0-0 starting today!

    The game was back and forth as both teams were just getting their feet under them and figuring out their offenses. QB Morrow got off to a quick start hitting a wide open WR with a BULLET for a 70 yard TD. 7-0 Browns.

    Saints battle back, but were unable to convert and had to settle for a 44 yard fg to make it 7-3 Browns.

    Browns offense was just rolling today as the Saints defense was always just 1 inch away from making a great play. Browns drive the field again, but this time settle for a 28 yr fg to make it 10-3 Browns.

    Saints try and battle back before getting this game out of hand. Rookie RB and #7 pick, Keller ended up taking a shot and being hurt for most of the 1st half. Keller had a very rough day, fumbling 3 times and getting hurt several times. Washington played great though in his back up roll and keep the Saints offense rolling. They didn't miss a beat and finally got English going. Saints would score on this drive with a 44 yr td pass from English to Henderson. Look for these two to hook up early and often this year. 10-10 tie.

    2nd quarter would be all browns. They would cause several turnovers, one with a pick of English as he didnt give this wr enough time to clear the MLB. Browns would punch it in late to take a 17-10 lead into half time.

    3rd quarter was more of the same. Great running from browns, and just enough defense to put this game away. English would be picked off another time after his two player would bump into one another causing the pass to go right to a SS for the pick. RB Mata would punch it in to make it 24 - 10 Browns.

    4th quarter would watch the Saints fumble the ball away and not stop the run as Mata would break off a long td run to put the game away and the Browns defense would pick off English a 3rd time as he just tried to squeeze a pass in there that shouldn't have been.

    Here is the scoring recap:
    First Quarter
    (CLE) M.Massaqoui 70 Yd pass from D.Morrow(P.Dawson kick), 7:06
    (NO) G.Hartley, 44 Yd FG, 4:52
    (CLE) P.Dawson, 28 Yd FG, 2:12
    (NO) D.Henderson 44 Yd pass from J.English(G.Hartley kick), 0:42

    Second Quarter
    (CLE) J.Lewis, 1 Yd run(P.Dawson kick), 5:53

    Third Quarter
    (CLE) L.Mata, 3 Yd run(P.Dawson kick), 3:54

    Fourth Quarter
    (NO) D.Henderson 35 Yd pass from J.English(G.Hartley kick), 7:45
    (CLE) L.Mata, 44 Yd run(P.Dawson kick), 1:46

    Here are some highlights from the game:
    (All Highlights Were Some How Erased)

    Saints start off the season on the rough side of things. Keller was banged around, English looked great - at times, but his timing with his WRs was off. Look for the Saints defense to get back on track and for this Saints offense to get rolling next week as the (0-1) Cards come to the Superdome.

    QB - Dan Morrow
    Morrow was sick nasty. He had a cannon arm and made some throws that just agitated the crap out of me. Some great touch, great arm, kids just good. 15 of 25 for 245 and a td. He will be a fun player to watch mature in Cleveland.
