Crennel: '30-3, unbelievable'

By Marla Ridenour Published: August 19, 2008

Browns coach Romeo Crennel's post-game comments after a 37-34 loss Monday night to the New York Giants:

''We didn't play very good. They outcoached us, they outplayed us. We were in it for a second. We got too many penalties, penalties change field position, their team gets field position and they take advantage of it, particularly in that first quarter, which basically was the game. I think it was 30-3 or something like that, unbelieveable.

''The second teamers tried to come back and make it respectable, at least they did fight for that. But early on it was disappointing. We didn't have enough poise, we dug ourselves a hole, and when you do that against a good football team it's hard to overcome, particularly on the road.

''We've got to back, we've got a lot of work to do because we're not very good right now. That's what it is. We will work and try to get better.''

Crennel's injury update:
Quarterback Derek Anderson: ''D.A. got hit in the head a little bit, we'll see how he is tomorrow.''
On a possible hand injury to Anderson: ''I think when he got sacked he hit on his hand and he might have bruised it, it might have hurt for a second. I think the head injury is the one of most concern.''
What happened on the Osi Umenyiora sack when Anderson was hurt: "Sometimes guys take a false step or don't step quick enough. It looked like they stunted inside and we got beat and he sacked the quarterback.''
Safety Brodney Pool: "He got hit in the head, we'll see how he is tomorrow.''
Cribbs: (ankle) Cribbs left the stadium with his left leg in a boot.
Leon Williams (neck)
Anderson was not seen in the locker room afterward, dressing and supposedly going straight to the bus.

On Brady Quinn
''I thought it was good experience for him. You neve know when he's going to need it. Him taking the time was good for him and probably good for us in the long run.

''He did pretty decent overall. He was able to complete some passes and move the team. His first series wasn't that great, but it was a tough situation to be in. He came back later and moved the team.''
