Chatter from the Browns

CLEVELAND – Chatter from the Browns after their 34-14 win over the Patriots:

Coach Eric Mangini (on the defensive plan)

“Dealing with a guy like Tom [Brady] and an offense like that, not giving them a lot of pre-snap information was extremely important and I thought the guys did it well. I thought the coaches did a great job of getting them ready and as I said, I’m really proud of the effort today and the way that we played. I know I’ve talked about this quite a bit, but that’s how I envision Browns football.”

Mangini (on what the win means to him)

“It feels great. I feel like I’m in that movie ‘Ghosts of Girlfriends Past’ – how we had New England this week and the Jets next week.”

Mangini (on what was said between him and Bill Belichick)

“’Good game.’ We were making plans for the summer [joking].”

Quarterback Colt McCoy (on his fourth-down sneak in the first quarter)

“I thought we executed it really well. We practiced that during the wek. When we shift [the receivers] out like that, you see if the [defensive line] moves and see who goes out. Really, at that point, backed up, it was pretty gutsy. But they moved the front, I had an opening, and I took it.”

Running back Peyton Hillis (on bouncing back from his first-quarter fumble)

“Against a team like that, you can never let off the gas. If you want to be successful in life and in this league, you have to learn to let the mistakes fall behind you and run with the curves. It’s the only thing you can do. We rebounded well today.”

Safety Abram Elam (on his forced fumble of Rob Gronkowski late in the second quarter)

“We stole the possession from them. That would have led to points and they were getting the ball after halftime.”
