- Their record is 1-5, and they've been outscored by 79 points in 6 games.
- Their patience on the QB Brady Quinn era lasted 10 quarters.
- The discussion has begun whether Eric Mangini is the worst head coaching hire in the last 25 years.
- They just traded away their former star WR Braylon Edwards for a couple of backups, and mid-round draft choices.
- They just lost their best linebacker, and defensive captain, to a season ending shoulder injury.
- And 20% of their team has the flu. It's affected 5 starters and they've trimmed back practice times to rest players.
Here are the team rankings, according to Football Outsiders:
|Pass Offense||Run Offense||Pass Defense||Run Defense||Special Teams|
Thanks in large part to WR/QB/KR Josh Cribbs, they are the best in the league on special teams. So, of course, they had been trying to trade him before the deadline.
And this week they play the Packers, a team that shut them out during the preseason 17-0.
