The Browns might have staved off the Packer avalanche a little longer in Sunday's 31-3 loss to Green Bay if they'd scored on their second possession.
But quarterback Derek Anderson's pass to Mike Furrey into triple coverage on third and goal from the 4 fell incomplete and was nearly intercepted. Anderson said running back Jerome Harrison, coming around the right side, was not a better option.
''The corner sat outside. He was just baiting me to throw it there and drive on it,'' Anderson said of throwing to Harrison. ''He was four yards off and has enough time to break on it. He ended up squeezing it back in after I threw. Maybe I throw it at Jerome and he might beat him to the pylon or the guy drives on him.
''Our coach says, ''Two Ball Drill.'' I throw one here and one there and one guy’s going to score.''
